Miss him and think about him every day, but especially coming up to Christmas. Christmas 2015 was magical when Grandad Barry came out of hospital for a few days and became himself again. On Boxing Day, when he was surrounded by his family, will always be one of my fondest memories. Now, Barry bauble takes prime position on our tree every year. 🎁🎄 #christmas#decorations#christmastree#grandad#memories
I know I’ve posted this before but the man on the right, my grandad, is in hospital right now. I have so many great memories of this man but only one photo. Wishing him a speedy recovery #grandad#applepiemaster
Today is Rory’s 13th birthday. This afternoon he had a visit from his Grandparents on his Dad’s side as well as his ‘new’ Grandad, Harriet’s Dad. They all arrived with cards filled with money and bonded over golf, The Kinks and Mick Hucknall.
How lovely is it that everyone can come together and unite over children rather than having any bad blood or seeing ex in laws and current in laws as a stressful situation.
We are all role models for our children and them seeing positive relationships is priceless.
Happy birthday Rory, you are so loved ❤️
My maternal grandparents.....probably taken around the mid to late 1920s.
Loving how sassy my grandma looks. Very proper with her hat and gloves but really owning it. And grandad Tom looks really dapper too.
It’s funny how you know people later in their lives, by the time I came along they were in their late 40s/early 50s so my memories of them are different to these photos.
So it’s great to see them as they were as young adults, starting their journey together.....❤️ #familyphotography#familyhistory#grandparents#love#1920sfashion#1920s#grandma#grandad
#11 The Circle of Life. Isn’t it crazy how as children, our elders guide us how to walk, talk, eat and live? Values, etiquettes, morals, respect - that’s what my grandparents have taught me. And now as I’ve entered my adulthood, they reach to me, their granddaughter, to now help them live. Children become carers and elders become reliers. And the cycle keeps on going. Raise your children to be decent humans, so they know how to take responsibility when needed and prioritise family first. You don’t want to be a frail little lady who lives alone because her children are far too busy in their own lives, to care for their mother who made them. The beautiful thing about life is you receive what you give. You help, you’re helped. You care, you’re cared for. It’s quite simple actually #last4weeksof2018#familyfirst#grandad#health#circleoflife
Busy morning with Hugo and grandad @aldiuk shop then a lovely cheese scone and a play @chimescoffeeshop obviously had to get some of Tony's mince pies to take home for @joannew_23 then a stop off @dobbiesgardencentres to see all the fish and Christmas decorations #grandson#granny#instababy#grandad
Never take your loved ones for granted.. because one day, they won't be here anymore. That time will be lost, gone, finished. All you will have left is a hole in your heart & pictures to look back on 😔 I would do anything, anything to have you back. One day I will come & find you, and I'll never let go again 💔💙 #Grandad#Family#Grandadsgirl#mylife#holdingon#mymainman#myworld
It's a week today that you passed Grandad and I hope that wherever you are they're showing the footy on the telly. #manunited#fan#forever When I was a wee lass my grandad and I didn't always see eye to eye, nearly every other weekend we'd disagree about something but for the most of it we got along and I would never argue against the fact that my Grandad was a kind and generous man. You could say that people 'of his generation' are stereotypically ignorant towards certain minorities but not my Grandad. When he found out I was gay he asked for flowers to be sent to me, on his behalf. It is to my understanding that he did this in order to show his support and love for me without having to proceed with an awkward and possibly embarrassing conversation (from my perspective). That is just one example of the kind of situation that I will remember in relation to my Grandad years down the line. ♥️ Another memory that I will hold dear to me is the last time I spoke to him. Due to his illness he was pretty confused in his last week or so on this earth but even in that confusion I managed to have one last meaningful moment. As I was leaving the hospital, I kissed him on the head and said "I love you grandad". It was then that his eyes focused on me and he said "yes, I love you too". That moment I will certainly never forget. Rest in peace Grandad, I love you! ♥️♥️♥️ #grandad#rip#iloveyou (The pictures I've used are from his 80th bday, if any family members do not have any pictures from that day and wish to have them then let me know and I will send them to you ♥️😊)
