X is for……oXo
How I struggled and struggled to think of a suitable candidate for X, but alas it was not to be, so I thought I would think, outside of the box and focus on something that had meaning for me, rather than looking through the dictionary!

My Grandmother was a great one for putting money by in a series of money boxes. She had a traditional money box divided into sections for gas, electric,rent, water rates and rates. Remember rates, in the dates before Council Tax? She also had a series of Bourneville Chocolate tins and a trusty oXo tin. All stored in the bottom of her wardrobe. I have no idea what she put money aside for in the Bourneville tins, but the oXo tin held the money she put aside for her hair to be done.
