Kind old ladies, aren’t they just lovely?

I recently took the children to Manor in Vesenaz to buy a comic each. They hummed and hawed and the old lady who works in the newsagent came over. I was worried that she would be annoyed at them taking so long and looking at all the comics.

She started to chat to my daughter about what kind of comic she liked and if she liked Barbie. I listened fascinated as I always do when my children speak French, I cannot believe how fast they have learnt.

When we were leaving my daughter asked for sweets and I said that since we had already bought comics, we would buy sweeties another day.

The lovely lady asked my daughter what were her favourite sweets and when she answered ‘Fruit Mentos’ gave her a packet free. She said that they were very well behaved children.

It made my day.
