You all know how much I love to dedicate a post and it’s a special one for our Grandma’s 81st. It’s no secret how much we love and adore her, in fact I am always writing about her on social media. You’re probably sick of reading about it, but the bond we have with her is unreal and means so much to me.
For her birthday this year, I have decided to write an open letter to her to let her know how much we appreciate her and how she has shaped our lives. I have placed this blog post in a card for her to read – I do hope she approves.
Dear Grandma or should I say Our lady Maureen,
Wishing you the Happiest of Birthdays My Darling Girl! I hope you have the best day ever because you deserve it. I really mean that. You deserve the world and more. Thank you for being my best friend, thank you for lending your ear and advice when I’m going through a hard time and thank you for cheering me up with tea, biscuits and The Real Housewives.
You have been the most amazing Grandma throughout our lives and we are so grateful that you are always there for us. You were understanding and accepting when AJ came out – you provided my Mum with support and most of all you provided bundles of love for all of us. I will never forget that. Going through a confusing time such as that was hard but made all that much easier having someone we could talk too or turn too.
I have so many memories with you that I’ll treasure forever; like our sleepovers and talking til’ 3am about everything and nothing, going to get my ears pierced with you, baking all sorts of concoctions and spending the six week school holidays with you bringing every toy I had to your house. When I was bored you’d always entertain me, tell me to write a story or even hop and skip around the garden. I was probably looking like a right lunatic whilst you had a cheeky smoke on the back steps haha.
As a child I absolutely loved you picking me up from Nursery, mostly because there would be sweet treats under the pram. I loved those bags of Milky Buttons! Remember when you picked me up and the pram wheel fell off? That’s because you were feeding me up and making me fatter hahaha. That was the worst day ever – I had to walk!
I also loved it when my friends or people who didn’t know you, picked me up from your house because that meant they got to meet you. MY GRANDMA. I was so proud. I still am. Even at a young age I knew that you were one of a kind and not everyone had someone like you. I knew you were different – a superstar.
So Lady Maureen, pop the kettle on, dance around your kitchen to Jane McDonald and enjoy your birthday. You are a Queen and should always be treated like one. You are Simply The Best.
Lots of love,
I love her with all my heart. Happy 81st Legend!
