Yes, I know all my geese are swans.
Five year old Granddaughter the Younger is however a bit more swanlike than usual.
For a start she always seems to be happy. The only thing that will phase her is the onset of tiredness, which isn’t often. The rest of the time she positively revels in the joys of life and never shuts the fuck up. I have never met a talker like her. If I pick her up from school she chats away incessantly and it doesn’t seem to bother her that I’m too busy navigating country roads to reply.
She is very confident and self sufficient. She will play happily with friends and will be just as happy to play on her own. When I visit, she is usually out playing with a friend and as I reverse up th the house [it makes for a quick getaway] she will come barrelling over to the door to greet me with a “Howya Grandad!”. Before I leave she always runs at me crying “Huggies”. Who can resist that?
Apart from all that, she has quite a voice. She doesn’t often sing on command but is very happy to sing when she thinks no one is around. And when she sings, she makes up her own words and airs.
Daughter heard her the other day. She was washing her hands in the bathroom and belting out one of her weird songs. The gist of the lyrics seems to be that nobody loves her but she doesn’t care! Very weird as she is much loved by everybody and she knows it.
Excuse the quality and the jingling in the background. That was disabled Big Bother who loves her singing and starts rattling his rattle with joy.
Best of luck making out the lyrics!
