Hello Kakey and all the other new gransnetters. I am new today too. Until seeing the news this morning I didn't know gransnet was a thing either 😁 . I am also missing my 18 month old granddaughter terribly. We chat on messenger most days but it's just not the same. What makes it even harder is a neighbour of ours has consistently been flouting the social distancing guidelines by having their daughter and her baby visiting almost every day when I haven't been able to see or hug my little Willow for nearly 2 months because we are choosing to do the right thing.

Hi, I saw the lady from Gransnet on television this morning and googled it out of interest. I found a lot of the comments interesting particularly those who asked if anyone had been sent a shielding letter which they did not agree with. I have been sent one which has caused me a great deal of anxiety. I phoned my doctor and was told I have kidney disease,asthma and take blood thinners. Not true!!Good to know I am not the only person this has happened to

Welcome to all new Gransnetters! I hope you enjoy being on here as much as I do - and I wasn't even a GRAN when I first joined 3 or 4 years ago. But now I am - since May last year I have had an adorable GRANDSON.
Once again WELCOME to you ALL smile x

Hi kakey, hope you enjoy being here. It can have its ups and downs, but you should always find something to interest you. What were they saying on the tv about us?

Hello kakey, my Grand lives in the US with her mum and dad. Doesn't stop us sharing pictures and having a laugh tho, despite the 5hr difference.
Enjoy GN and enjoy your family.smile

Hi, I saw the same thing on tv this morning. I used to be on Mumsnet, but I'm now a proud nanny to 3 lovely girls, almost 13, 9 and 13 months.

Hello, I didn’t know gransnet was a thing! I’d heard of mumsnet, then I saw a lady on tv this morning talking about gransnet so I’ve signed up. I’m missing my grandchildren so much, like everyone must be. So I’m just saying hi to you all.
