I guess from your forum name you're on the opposite side of the Wirral to me! I'm in Bromborough. I used to do yoga at Bebington Oval and also in Heswall but not for a few years now. Having a campervan is my dream - we have a little caravan now after many years going from 'two man tent' through family tent to trailer tents and folding campers to this little van which I love! Where do you travel to in your campervan?
I've just joined this Local Forum after being a GNer since I joined on the first day 5yrs ago. I'm married to a wonderful man who is retired now but still very fit and busy,I have just retired again (3rd time) from managering a Charity Shop full time for the past 2 yrs,prior to that I ran a catering business part time which I loved but sold on when it became to busy for me,before that we lived in Spain for nearly 9 yrs and owned a restaurant which we loved coming back to UK just in time when the £ value fell out of the market we sold our villa and business just in time really.We are now waiting to move into a bungalow in about 6 weeks and start to take things at an easier pace if we can manage to do that. I have 1 X DD AND 2 X DSs with 7 DGCs and 1 x GGD between them they range from 1yr- 26yrs so I have loads of experience of being a hands on nanna as I have always looked after them at one time or another I also have 2 x DILs so can help maybe with any problems which may come your way.My input may be a wee bit hit and miss over the next weeks due to house move but I will be back on track very soon I promise.Glamma xx
Hello glammanana! Wow what an age range of dgcs! Great to find you on the local forums. We have a few flurries then it dies down again. Hoping things will get busier as more people find us! We have a Facebook page too for the local L&W site you are welcome to comment there too. We are wondering if a bungalow is the next home for us when DH retires in two years. He works part time from home so needs an office ATM . We are going to downsize but I do like having the children's bedrooms for our own use! He has his office/hobby room, I have a sewing room and one room is the guest room/ironing pile room!
When we sold up and moved to Spain I found it very difficult to adapt from 4 large bedrooms to just 2 bedrooms,but I soon got over that with the ease that came with not having to change beds every week after children had been staying at week-ends,we missed them dreadfully when we first moved abroad but got used to the quality time with them at holidays and the fact I could fly home in 2 hours if the longing got out of hand,which it did during the first 2 yrs.My DGSs are the light of my life they are all so loving the girls are more outgoing and out spoken compared to the boys,my dd has 5 DSs and 1 x DD and my eldest DS has 1 x DD with his previous partner he got married last June in Las Vegas to his fiancee of 3yrs it was a small wedding with just 14 of us travelling there but they had a wedding reception when they got home the week after,what they paid out could have paid off a large chunk off their mortgage imo but who am I to say all I know is it cost us an arm and leg to go as there was no way I would miss my boy getting married where ever it was.( I hope I don't come across as a apron string mum as I really am not) Will fill in later as time goes on about family and other bits and bobs,oh by the way I am mum also to Poppy the Lhasa Apso and Oliver a British Short Haired Blue Cat one of his relatives does the Sheba Cat Advert on TV if you ever watch the adverts.xx Glamma
