Not sure where to go!

Hi, I've just joined and wanted to say hello somewhere and wasn't sure where!

I need to confess, I am not a Gran but I do have children who are in their 20's so it's only a matter of time! I hope that doesn't matter that I'm posting here and not on mumsnet where I used to post when the kids were younger and now I feel like a fish out of water because I am OLD (compared to those on there!) and rearing children is a bit different now as to how I used to do it. I think when I eventually have GC I might have to butt out!

Anyway, the sun is shining, I shall have a poke about on here and I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday with lots of brew and cupcake and later on wine. Cheers!

Welcome to GN JustMe smile

Perhaps you can pick up some good tips for when your time comes! grin

JustMe Sat 02-Mar-13 13:04:27

Thank you!

Yes, I shall be all ears. I can't imagine it, wonderful though I am sure it is!

Poke about to your heart's content and welcome!!

Hi JustMe Not everyone on here is a granparent so you will not be alone. Welcome, join in and see what you think of us.

No problem, JustMe. We have/have had non-grans on here and the vast number of forums they can take part in far outweighs the ones about grandchildren and daughters-in-law!

Welcome JustMe - enjoy your poking around on GN, I'm sure you'll enjoy being here. Love the name btw!

I have a sister who always announces herself as JustMe, so for a second there I did wonder........, but no, her children aren't quite in their twenties yet. grin
I warn you now, we're a community that sort of draws you in - possibly to the detriment of other things you might once have thought more important. Be prepared to waste spend hours on here. wink

Hello JustMe, pleased to meet you. smile

Hello Justme, and welcome from another "not a Gran yet" but looking forward to them eventually appearing.

JustMe Sat 02-Mar-13 15:30:51

What a lovely warm welcome, thank you everyone! No I don't think I'm your sis, grannactivist as mine really are in their 20's! I will be drawn in I can tell, and I'm glad I can contribute without having GC's. I just sort of feel that I am in a different phase of my life now that my children are making their way in the world (hopefully!)

Right... off for more poking about! Thanks all.

I'm also a granny ... er, not. Welcome!

grannyactivist Sat 02-Mar-13 16:21:49

JustMe, are your children still at home, or have they moved away?

merlotgran Sat 02-Mar-13 16:26:50

Welcome, JustMe. Hope you enjoy Gransnet. There's always plenty going on.

JustMe Sat 02-Mar-13 16:34:08

Thank you... great to be here!

Love the name Merlotgran (I like a glass or two myself!). Grannyactivist, one daughter is now proper work and is settled 2-3 hours away from here, and the other is in her final year at Uni and plans to find a certain type of job and that could be anywhere... so they are still 'around' but no, not really here.

Hi justme I thought you could be me as that's what I say on the phone to my children! Welcome and enjoy smile

Hello JustMe, and welcome.

JustMe Sun 03-Mar-13 11:44:49

Yes, thinking about it... I say that too 'It's Just Me!' Or... 'Helloooooooo' said exactly how it's spelt!
Thanks for the welcome. smile

My sister and I are 'only me' - to each other, or else it could be confusing.

glammanana Sun 03-Mar-13 14:04:46

Welcome JustMe and enjoy ! I am preceeded by "Its only Me" when ever I pop in anywhere and they all seem to know who I am confused
