She had taken off her dress and her lovely frilly petticoat and had put them very carefully over a garden seat, and out she jumped, her old noisy jumping self again, skipping up and down in her little white vest and her little white knickers! And she was laughing too.
"Now I can have swings,and fish-ponds,and roundabouts and a big tea," she shouted. "Now I can be ME again."
She was very pleased with her good idea.
Just look at that! "Her old noisy jumping self"! She is an inspiration to us all.
And by the way, the picture above - and indeed all the pictures of her - look exactly like me when I was that age, right down to the shape of her nose and expression on her face. Which is possibly why I always loved her so much.
