What Grandparents Are For

Odi was panicking because Fabrizio had nappy rash and the doctor wouldn't see him at short notice. I stayed cool,  took time out from making my apple cake (how grandparenty is that!),  looked at the  rash, pronounced it almost cured, then ran off a sheet  of advice from the NHS which proved that Odi's own instincts had been entirely correct and she'd done everything that could be done to treat the condition.

This must be what grandparents are for.
