There's only 1 Granny!

Mum with her three!
Today is the strangest Mothers Day I've ever had as a Mum - because none of my own children are here.
They have gone on holiday for a few days with MY Mum - The Granny!

Mum was re-named 'The Granny' by the whole family when my #1 son Alfie was born 11 years ago. Since then, Kenzie, Geordie, then my brother's boys Sonny and Luca, completed a little band of grandsons. 

It would be fair to say that this year has been a funny old one for Mum, full of highs and lows. A massive high point was the arrival of my sister's baby wee Mabel in January, grandaughter #1!

Now Mum is officially Granny to all of our families and a very special Granny at that. Having children has made us all appreciate just how difficult her life has been. Our dad (her soul mate) died when we were young, Nelly only 2. 

Since having our own children we have all seen this event through her eyes rather than our own. It looks very different from this angle! And has made us all appreciate everything she has achieved in her life. 

The Granny is an amazing nurturing Mum to us three, a wonderful Mum-in-law to our three lucky partners, a fabulous Granny to her 6 wee ones, as well as a loyal and supportive friend to many.

Here are some photos of the good times we've had together since mothers day 2010 and since she has taken my children on holiday for an adventure(and allow us to finish some lists!) I for one will be raising a large glass to The Granny! 



  1. Awww, bless her. What a star!

  2. What a lovely photo montage - liking what you've done there.

    I shall also raise a glass to The Granny.

    Enjoy your time together, I can (almost) now appreciate just how good that must be...
