I had a lovely card from a close friend who is also a granny which said, ‘Welcome to the best club in the world!’ And it’s just how it felt. Quite a few of us, friends who are also grannies, are just are a bit smug about it from time to time, saying ‘Oh, isn’t it nice to be a granny, isn’t it lovely.’
There’s all that business about having the best deal because you have the pleasure of the children without that relentlessness and that anxiety and responsibility. It’s such a privilege and you feel such an important part of a team, you are a necessary support. When you’re retired, it gives your life shape and meaning.
