little girl, British.
Cheeky little girl!
This is my mother-in-law, Ivy.
Ivy was born in Devon, England. She has an identical twin sister, Irene.
My mother-in-law makes perfect tea, loves to garden and met Winston Churchill's mother.
During WWII, as a hired farm-hand, she found a Roman coin as she was digging in the farmer's garden.
She traded it to a "Yank," as all the girls were "mad" for American soldiers. She received a quarter for the Roman coin.
Ivy still kicks herself for being so gullible!
My mother-in-law walks several times a week and though I'm not allowed to state her age, she is over 85. Shhhh, don't tell her I gave you a hint!
Little Ivy is active, independent and yes, cheeky.
We wouldn't have her any other way!
