are becoming quite a challenge as we grope our way towards what it is she wants to say. It becomes like a game of charades. Take this morning's for example:
Mum: There was this thing on the wireless this morning - it was really good. I thought it would be a very good thing for them.
Me: Oh yes - what was that?
Mum: Oh, I can't remember what it was, but it's been on before - not for a while though.
Me: OK - what was it about.
Mum: I don't know, but it'll come back to me. --- There was five of them and they each had a hill.
Me: Ah - the Teletubbies?
Mum: That's it!
I was quite pleased I got it so quickly.
