My grandmother had been in a wheelchair from a accident earlier in her life. As she couldnt bend down whilst talking or playing with us she let us sit and play up on the big wooden kitchen table where we were more her height. She would keep the brown paper that the bread had been wrapped in and chalk for when we come to visit and myself and 2 sisters would clilmb up onto that table and draw with great grandma watching from the sidelines. As kids the highlight had been that we were allowed to climb on furniture, as adults it holds special memories as we remember she broke the house rule of "no climbing on furniture" just so she could look at us face to face. Sadly i was only 5 when she died but i still remember sitting up on that table like it was yesterday. As kids we didnt realise they were special times but i think she did.
