I had a close relationship with my grandma (dad's side) because not only did she live just around the corner from me, but we shared the same birthday. I used to go round to her house every weekend and we'd either play games at home or go on an 'adventure' to the park or supermarket and McDonalds.
That sounds like my grandmother and I. We would go on adventures all of the time. It is so special.

No. She died when I was two so l don't remember anything about her. Mhm tells me that she loved me very much, and I used to get excited when we went to see her.
I am sorry to hear that. That is a real shame. It is great your Mum can share the memories with you.

My mother's parents died when she was a teen. My father's father and mother were great. They lived around the corner so we would run round to see them all the time. Granddad died when I was around six or seven and we were heartbroken. After we migrated, I never saw Grandma again.

It is great that you have such nice memories of your grandparents before you moved. Distance is hard. Luckily we have Skype so my kids can keep in touch with their grandparents who live away but it is not the same.

My Mothers - mother died long before I was born, and I was told that she was a lovely soul.

I have spent time with my Fathers mother, and she was not a nice person.
That is terrible!

Yes I did. Our home was not a happy place when I was a child, but I always felt safe and loved by my Grandparents. In later years I remained in my hometown to be near my Grandmother. I liked to be close after my Grandfather died , in case she needed something as she never learnt to drive. I have very happy memories of sitting around the kitchen table drinking tea and working on crosswords with her. She stayed in her own home alone until she was 96 with at least one visit a day from me,and eventually had to leave because her dementia reached a point she was no longer safe. I felt fortunate to be able to bring my Grandaughter to visit my Grandmother. She died when I was 53 , just after her 98th birthday. Sadly I don't foresee having such a lovely relationship with my own Grandaughters as their mother keeps them away from their father's family.
My Grandmother and I were very close and I knew no one else would ever love me like she did.
Wow. That sounds like an amazing, strong and caring bond. My grandparents also provided my home base. Thanks for sharing.

That is terrible. I am so sorry to hear that. People do the strangest things some time.

I was extremely close and had a powerful bond with my grandmother. She was like my other mother. She helped to bring me up, looked after me until I started preschool and walked me to school most days until I changed schools. She taught me how to cook, play cards, knit, sew, about plants and life. She was there at tuck shop, watched me at school, sporting and uni events and cheered me on when I became a Mum. She picked me up when I fell.

She passed away last year and I was devastated, I still can't believe she has gone. We spoke nearly every day and I still feel lost. I feel fortunate to have been so close and to have someone love me as unconditionally as she did. I know others are not as fortunate due to distance or strains in family dynamics and I feel for them. I was so lucky to have an amazing, caring, loving and strong yet unassuming role model.
That's wonderful . . . ! So lovely that you had a long relationship with her. I am very sorry you have lost her :( Waxed tabelcloths and Sunlight soap still to this day remind me of my Gran. I can close my eyes and be standing in her kitchen as soon as I small that soap.
by Rice
Ahhhhh. Sunlight soap! Now that brings back memories!!!

My grandparents (on mum's side) lived around the corner from us so we were always close. Mum was a widow and every time I felt mum was too strict, I'd decide to run away (to nan's of course) but she would always talk me in to going back home after getting me to pick the strawberries, or feed the chooks. I guess she figured I'd be calmed down enough by then to go back home. When Pa passed away, on nis death bed he asked me to look after her. She was so independent and continued to live on her own but to make sure she was eating okay, I used to drive down to her place after I'd dropped my first child (pregnant with the 2nd) at school and have breakfast with her every morning. She'd have the eggs and toast set up and the kettle boiling when I walked in and I enjoyed this time with her. Sometimes I'd make extra dinner and drop that down to her until she couldn't eat that type of food any more. As to my grandmother on my father's side, I never knew any of the family because mum married a Catholic and in those days, his family wiped their hands of them and their "bastard" children. Luckily mum's family didn't think like that.
My father's mother died before I was born. As for my mother's mother, I had/have a close relationship with her. She doesn't say much anymore, but she is happy to listen. I took my newborn daughter to see her the other day, and she was very happy to see her. It was a lovely day.

I had a lovely relationship with my grandmother, we spent many weekends and holidays at her house with the extended family all gathered round. She was such a social lady, there was always something going on.
