Another true story.
It's funny how sometimes you find out the most interesting things about people you know well only after they have gone. My gran was that little old lady who looked after me when I was younger, gave me sweets and ice-cream and pocket money. Turns out she could have been a star ballerina with the Russian ballet but family poverty made it impossible for her to follow her dream. If she had been able to go its probable that I wouldn't I even be hear to tell the tale! The fickleties of fate!
