The NN8 Writers Group was given the task of writing about our name. What follows is the first in a series on the theme.
At school I was Carrot or Ginge But that's not me anymore. For years my surname was Knight But I traded it for a mum-in-law. Some shorten my name to Val But they're only friends for a while. My name can be sung, Val-der-ree Or belted Amy Whitehouse style. To a favoured few I'm Grandma Never Gran, Nanny or Nan. But to Him who knows me, Really knows me, And yet still loves me, I am, who I am.
