"When I was about 5 years old a new library was to be built in our town. My Dad bought a brick engraved with our names on as part of the fundraising campaign. Last year, I got a leaf from Lawrence Batley Theatre and put the names of my two little girls on it. When I showed Penny who is 3 last Christmas she walked around the building with a big smile like she owned the place. Well... maybe she does... just a teeny tiny bit of it."
