When i was a small child i wanted to get something for my mothers birthday from me. My Dad gave me money and i went across to the shops opposite by myself to get somethin. I suppose my father imagined i would come back with chocolates or similar, but was a bit surprised when i came back with something every mother needed - a brush and shovel, for cleaning  the fire.

My Gran once bought one of her son-in-law's a tub of Brylcreem. An 'unusual' gift even for the1980s. But the rest of us family members considered it to be hilarious as he was bald!
