Playdates for Grannies

October 26, 2017


We have seen the fraught social life of the under 5s. The under 13s are going non stop with maybe Friday off. but now that the over 65s are becoming more plentiful and in better health, will our children/minders be looking for playdates for us?. 

Oh, well you might laugh, but a few people have already asked me if I would be organising such a thing. They would like to be able to bring their Grannie.Grandad along to something fun, non patronising, where while there would be a central activity, there would also be an opportunity to chat,, do a bit of exercise, , make a few jokes....

So what would you suggest?

Heads, shoulders, knees and toes    or        Rory Gallagher

A nice bedtime story      or         The best of the Voodoo Vampires

Dress with a warm rug     or     leather jackets

A talk on how to write your will      or       Tips for travelling in Mongolia

How to talk to your doctor    or     how to speak Innuit



Let's have your suggestions
