Sorry, have to share this one.
Went to wedding yesterday (my niece). Lovely day and all five of my grandchildren were there (very well behaved, I'm glad to say). I have two 8 year old grandsons (two daughters) and they were sat outside on the grass chatting away, like those kids you used to see in the Vauxhall adverts, and I overheard the following:
1st 8 year old: I lost my front tooth on Wednesday. The tooth fairy gave me £5.
2nd 8 year old: I only got a pound.
1st 8 year old; That doesn't seem fair.
2nd 8 year old: Well, there is a recession on, you know.
