Most days Marjorie is visited by Linda who comes to tell her of the exploits of her grand-daughter, Laura.  Laura got ten out of ten.  Laura came top of the class.  Laura passed this exam or that exam.  Laura enjoys her organic lunch box. Laura is going to be a doctor.  Today Laura said ‘when it’s your birthday Grandma I’m going to give you a flower’.  Wasn’t that sweet?  Afterwards Marjorie tries to restore her equilibrium by imagining Laura failing exams, fluffing interviews,  going to school with no knickers on,  burning a hole in her skirt while ironing it,  getting drunk on her Dad’s sherry and shouting ‘sod you Grandma’ and falling down wells.
