I’d Like to Introduce You To Someone Special

This is my Grandma, if you’re a regular reader you’ll know about what happened last week. If not you can read here. She’s someone special that I’d like to introduce you to. 

This photo was taken last August. It was the day before my Grandad’s birthday. It was taken in the garden at my Aunt’s House. Grandma didn’t like having her photo taken but my cousins D and M were “encouraging” her to join in. My Grandma was an amazing lady. She brought up four children, My Dad, My Uncle Steve, My Auntie Alison and My Uncle Jon. She then was part of mine and my cousin’s development into the young people we are today.

My Grandma was an amazing lady. She brought up four children. My Dad is the eldest followed by Uncle Steve, Auntie Alison and Uncle Jon. When we came along, she was working part-time and so was able to look after my brother, my cousins and myself when needed. She helped us become the young people we are today.

Her birthday is at the beginning of April on the same day as my Parent’s wedding anniversary.

I’m glad that she was able to see me graduate from University last year – she was at the ceremony which was really good – unfortunately she doesn’t really like her photo taken so she wouldn’t have a photo taken with me in my graduation stuff.

Grandma the Storyteller…

My Grandma was an amazing woman as I said at the top. She would often tell me stories about my Dad and what he got up to. One I wish I’d been a fly on the wall for was when my Dad put my Aunt or my Uncle in the bath fully clothed!

I remember one time we were at Grandma’s and I sat on the stepladder in the middle of the garden singing Edelweiss. I didn’t know all the words but I made up the rest when I forgot them!

Most Wednesday’s Grandma would meet me, D, M and my Bro from school. My brother and I went to a different school to our cousins but the schools were right next to each other so doing the school run was nice and easy! We’d go and play for a bit and then we’d have tea. For a little while, Uncle Jon lived with Grandma and Grandad. He was often causing trouble and he’d us up something stupid then send us home to our parents. Mum and Dad weren’t definitely not impressed for us to be that hyped up on a school night!

    The benefit of baby sitting is that you get the kids hyper then send them home with their parents. I thin it’s a good deal 🙂

    that’s a lovely photo though, she sounds like a fabulous lady!
