Family is everything to me and so is looking after my loved ones as they get older. I spend a couple of afternoons a week with my Grandparents, helping care for them as they did for me when I was little.
My Grandad is ‘a character’ and at 92, he’s got a lot of life in him. Most of the time we spend chatting about his gliding instructor career (give him 5 mins and he’ll whip out his log book), watching the pigeon’s (named by grandad Percy and Pricilla) or reminiscing about holidays together. He’s quite annoying sometimes, but also remarkable.
3 things I’ve learnt from my Grandad…
- The greatest gift you can give is laughter
- Appreciate beauty in absolutely everything
- Never stop being curious
