“I live in England but much of my family lives in Australia. Over the past 50 years I’ve managed to visit then in the Blue Mountains 21 times.

The thing I love most about being a grandparent is visiting my family. They fill me with energy and make me feel fulfilled. I like to be able to share my knowledge with them.

My perfect Grandparents Day would be meeting up with the whole family, including all of the great-grandchildren.”
