(facebook granny)

I sometimes wonder what it would have been like if my grannies had been able to post online. Would have been entertaining.

Though, I'd have just be bombarded with endless streams of 'have you stopped smoking yet?' from my Aunty Peggy day in and day out

(Peter and his hair)

I challenge any bloke who was aged 3-5 between the years of 1974 and 1985 to prove they don't have a photo of themselves with hair every bit as tragic as that. I don't know who taught our mums to cut hair, but I suspect it was Ray Charles.

Mine would just have been telling me to pull myself together.

They all meant well. Peggy smoked like a chimney up until the mid-80s, when her doctor told her she'd lose a leg if she continued and she quit overnight. As soon as she found out I smoked (think I was about 18 or so), she made it her life's work to make sure I stopped. Then when I finally did, right before I was about to leave for the US, and I was able to proudly tell her she sat there, gin and bitter lemon in hand, and said: "Well, you still drink, don't you?"

I miss Aunty Peggy

She was. Classic Belfast aunt, really (my mum's aunt, technically, but 'great aunt' doesn't roll off the tongue as easily), liked a drink, worked in Gallagher's during the war, wasn't shy to tell you what she thought and always had a cupboard full of sweets she'd dole out to me and my sister when we were visiting her.

She never married, and was always around family events so I saw her almost as much as my grandparents - and at parties she'd get drunk and recite 'The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God' with my uncle. Ahhh, great days.
