For those of you like me who have reached the stage where you are Grandparents – you will know that it crept up on you and that you feel absolutely no different age wise as a grandparent than you did before.
What you do feel in my case is incredibly lucky. I have so much fun being a Grandma! Weekends are full of crazy golf, beach walks and frog hunts. Glue, paints and shells are regular activities, and time flies.
Being a grandparent for me, means so much fun! Letting the parents have time to just be themselves is important. Time to breathe in busy weeks of work and parenting; so going to grandma’s holiday house by the sea is for my Granddaughter regular a weekend event.
I have just discovered that there is a special day for Grandparents, in the UK it falls on 2nd October 2016: Grandparents Day. This is something this year I’ve decided to celebrate! So on 2nd October,which is a Sunday, I am going to arrange a family get together.
Gathering the generations, because for us we aren’t the only grandparents – there are great grandparents too (we are the mere youngsters!)
Grandparents Day will give us a great excuse to gather, talk, laugh and eat!! I think I will gather gifts for all grandparents and my granddaughter is going to help me choose them.
I have decided to take advantage of the sales going on and gather a few sneaky surprises over the coming weeks
If you feel like doing the same take a look at Chums menswear for Grandads’ – great savings
For ladies you might want to explore the Marks and Spencer sale or Chums again- I found these two presents that won’t break the bank and will definitely bring a smile (I saved them to Pinterest as I gathered my list!)
If you are celebrating Grandparents day – I hope your preparations are underway, whether its a hug and a kiss and a home made card, a present or flowers – this is another day that you can choose if you wish to celebrate your family.
For this occasion I am not going vintage, but it might be fun next time to consider vintage gifts or even vintage clothes as gifts, as I have mentioned before vintage fabric always starts discussion as associated memories flow!
