N is for …
I don’t recall when G first called me Nic Noodle. Or Noodle Doodle. Or Winkle. .Or Doris.
Or more recently, and said with great affection I assure you, Hippopotowhale (I’ll explain that one another time!). I always thought nicknames were taunting and unkind having spent years as a child being called knickers (thank goodness that one stayed in the primary school playground!). It’s entirely different when a loved one chooses a name for you and there are always smiles and laughter when G creates or uses a new one.
Do you have any nicknames?
(you only have to share the smile cracking ones)
