Grandma is lovely. She tells great stories and makes great tea but she sorta sucks at giving presents. For my birthday last year I got knitted tea cosy and a box of light bulbs, missing two of the bulbs. But she’s lovely and we don’t like to disappoint her. These days what we do is say thank you but explain why we unfortunately can’t accept her generous gift and offer it to one of the other grand children.

Love from Grandma was first played at This is a Door, 2012
