I found out yesterday that I AM GOING TO BE A GRANDMA !!!!!

Obviously I intend to be a Grandma of the Glamorous variety!!! lol

Yes, my son and his partner rang me yesterday with the news! Im emotional and it feels strange .... I was younger than my son is now when I had him ... but to me he is still my baby boy!!!! ....

Ive always felt so clever that I helped produce two beautiful human beings ... and I feel so proud now that another generation is starting ... and I played a part in that!!!

So this is the next stage of my life .... and I have to say it feels lovely!

GRANNY!!!!!!! Congratulations! Is this gonna pull you back to the UK or are you gonna be "grandma Spain"???

It must a be a weird feeling, I'm not looking forward to that label, altho like you my daughters are now older than I was when I had them! In fact I was divorced by the time I was my eldests age!!!

I've already decided that I'm gonna be simply "G", all the rest sound too old to me, (rocking chair, knitting kinda names!!)

Congratulations Sue!

Even though you're going to be a grannie, I'm sure there's plenty of blokes willing to give you a Tony Danza! :)

If you'd called me twenty years ago (in your younger days) I could have helped you out! :cool:

May be they will have time with you and want to travel abit here in Spain. El Burgo is in a Protected Natural Park with some of the best scenery I have every had the privilege to see in the world.
The people of the village have traveled the world looking for work and they are some of the most friendliest I have found.
Of a weekend you may find the local bars bombarded with bikers, that is push bikes as well as motor bikes, walkers are often find this place of beauty as well.
The lakes are not far from here and have replenished its water stock since the downpoor of last year, topped up recently, you will find pictures, there is farm land growing olives, almonds figs and many other fruits, the months change and the scenery changes with the months. The sun is always shinning and it is protected by the mountains. If you are lucky you may see eagles, deer and even wild boar.
Maybe you could all travel. :plane:

It is great news Pesky! The "strangeness" comes from having to get my head around my own children producing children lol !!!! My two still seem so young .... but he is nearly 25 and I was only 23 when I had him!
