If He Knew That I (Inadvertently) Took Photographs of Dead Friends”.I hope you’re intrigued by the titles!Just to give you an idea of the kind of (true) family yarns the book contains-1- My littlest Granddaughter (aged four) said- “Nana, when I went to play at Evelyn’s we SNEAKED into her Mummy’s bedroom and got something ‘very private and special’ out of her drawers that we aren’t allowed to touch”.I hardly dared ask…“It was Lindsay’s machine to make sure that her baby’s heart is beeping”. WHAT a relief!~2, Whilst I was working as a Nurse in Out-Patients at our local Hospital I was taking a history from a rather quietly spoken patient who had a glass eye. And I’m a little hard of hearing.I introduced him to the Consultant as- “Mr H – who lost an eye as a child when he was attacked by a Pelican”.“Sorry to interrupt Nurse” said Mr H. “But I lost my eye due to a pellet gun - we don’t get many pelicans in Mansfield”!~3, My husband Tony was watching a Triathlon on television and I remarked what a good idea it was for the bike riders to have their names emblazoned on their behinds for the cameras to follow.Quick as a flash he replied- “Your bum’s so big you could have your e-mail address across yours”It might indeed be true, but I don’t need confirmation!~Sold in aid of Registered Charity number 1104002 (the Pet Bereavement Support Group), three thousand copies of the first three books were sold.An ardent fund-raiser, Yvette has decided to embark upon writing to raise much-needed funds to run the Charity as she’s getting far too elderly to continue fund-raising prolifically as she has done for the past thirty years.And anyway, the joys of being a Nana are now her main priority.Please buy a copy of the E-Book, get a nice cup of tea, kick off your shoes and have a good giggle!
