I'm lucky to still have a grandparent in my life, and the fact that she lives nearby so I can visit regularly is even better. Once a week, after dinner, the Mini Mes and I drive to her home along with my mum, sister, aunt and cousins for a good natter and plenty of treats. Grans are always great at providing sweets and biscuits aren't they!?
Some of my fondest childhood memories involve my Grandma.
Her and my grandad used to visit at weekends and while they sat watching the football results after lunch my brother and I would sit on the floor with trays, the ones with the fold out legs, filled with cakes like a little shop. Jam tarts, Viennese whirls and donuts. Mmm.
Hiding in and running through the tunnels at a park in Warwick.
Playing in their huge garden using the windbreaks to make a den.
Riding around on the little red rusty trike they kept in the shed and collecting ladybirds.
Roast dinners and spaghetti bolognese followed by pavlova and sponge cakes.
Searching for mints with my siblings that she had hidden around the house like a treasure hunt.
Now that she is a great-grandma to the Mini Mes it's lovely to see them giggling at her crazy monkey impressions!
They push around her trolley and offer her carrot cake and giant chocolate buttons.
They watch as she talks to her little budgie named Bobby like a best friend.
She turns off the news to let them watch cBeebies and gives them spending money when we go on holiday.
She is groovy gran and we love her dearly.
Have you got an amazing Gran?
