Love your grandparents, they’ll always love you

Hello people! I hope that you are well 🙃👍

Today is the 7th anniversary of my beautiful Nan’s passing and I just wanted to write a quick blog post to talk about her and my thoughts about grandparents.

Grandparents are super special aren’t they? They’re the ones that brought your parents to this world, they the ones that raised your parents with lots of love. They’re the ones that pick up the pieces when your parents need 5 minutes, and they’re the ones that give you treats when your parents say no and give the best hugs.

Don’t forget to say I love you, everyday. 

We are so busy nowadays, with the pressures of work, having the best fashion, looks, the best body and the perfect relationships that we forget about those people who love us no matter what.

No matter where you have gone in your life, where you’re going and what you want to do, your grandparents are there to support you.  They’re there to teach you, to guide you and of course love you unconditionally.

But what we often forget, we forget that as much as we are growing up, they are growing older by the day. Continue reading “Don’t forget to say I love you, everyday. “

Day 8 blogging challenge: Someone you miss

Thank you so far by the way to be sticking with me and my 30 day challenge. I know the last blog gas touched accord with many people, I hope that it’s helped just one person.

Today’s post is all about who I miss. I find it very hard to let go of someone when they go out of my life, whether through location reasons, end of a friendship, relationship or passing on.

But this was the easiest blog post to write, as I still think about this person everyday.

Isn’t my baby cute…….. eh?

large (1) large (2)

As Facebook is 10 years old, I thought I would post about my most annoying thing I see on a day to day basis – babies on my news feed. Some of my closest friends have babies and I adore them, I get sent photos of them and these friends do not post photos on Facebook so I really appreciate them when I do get them.

But we have a generation at the moment where of course there is the first status of “we’re expecting!!!” and then it starts…………. the first photo of the scan in which I cannot make out a thing. What happened to keeping things like that private, why do you need to share it with EVERYONE? I mean some of these profiles are still on global setting, so it is literally everyone looking at the inside of your stomach.

Then comes all the baby clothes photos, the app game which shows you how long they have got left and what stage the baby is at – have you heard of a privacy setting called “family or just certain people”.

Woohoo your baby bump has grown and the next stage is the next baby photo, this time I can see the baby and sometimes its a funny photo where the baby is pulling a pose etc. I would often like this photo if for example some of my friends have had a hard time conceiving, so of course I am bloody delighted for them.

AAAAAH the baby is coming, here comes the countdown – the app is going more and more on my newsfeed. Finally the baby is here.

But it doesn’t stop there, the photos of when the baby is born, how exhausted the mother looks just after giving birth and the baby from ALL angles are shown in over an album of 50.

Then comes the cute clothes which the baby wears for weeks/months on after that, videos of them staring into a camera and finally the baby “posts” comments “thanks auntie…. for the present” – no no no lol!

What happened to privacy, what happened to cute little photo albums, what happened to showing your grandparents things your baby does before showing strangers?

Hmmmmmm…..
