  • Abstract

    Jonathan has a good relationship with Janice, his grandmother or "Grandma" as he calls her. Janice's late husband was respected Welsh artist Tony Goble and at his funeral Jonathan carried one of his paintings behind his coffin. Janice is bemused by Jonathan's appearance, particularly his mohican haircut. They talk about Janice winning a holiday in a competition, Jonathan buying his first home and his ongoing search for love and a soulmate to spend his life with, something Janice says she doubts he'll easily find with his current haircut!
