We've just had the family staying for a few days and, according to my 9 yr old grandson, my pick-up stick is cool, my key-turner is cool and my wheelchair is always so cool I've come to dread the words “Can I have a go with Grandma?” :shock:

I happened to mention that, when we move house to be near them in Scotland, I plan to get a mobility scooter. His eyes sparkled with delight at the coolness of that. I'm starting to feel a little hot under the collar :too-hot:

    It's the ultimate accolade to be cool - our grandsons were like that with the stair lift until the novelty finally wore off.

    I got a compliment too at the weekend, when we had the family - according to my 9 year old grandson, my sausage rolls were 'well good.' Given that I'm no Mary Berry I was quite pleased.

    Congratulations! When I showed my 4 year old grandson a photo of my mobilty scooter I got a "wow", and quite a few pupils have described my rollator as cool.
    Children are great for putting a positive spin on things.
