All you need is love – and music
■ Having read a recent article on grans I wanted to write about being an older gran. I have two grandchildren, both teenagers. I am 92 and they are 14 and 16. I thought I would never be a grandparent, then this miracle happened, not once but twice. Although unable to join in long walks or exciting expeditions there are other ways to be part of their lives. Our family has one great bond – music. Between us we play the piano, guitar, saxophone and flute and we love to sing. When they visit the house is full of love, laughter and music. I’m sure there are lots of other older grans and nanas who find different ways of relating to their grandchildren, even if we can’t do a five-mile sponsored walk or play a game of tennis. In the end only one thing matters – and that’s love.
