14 Reasons We Love Grandparents!

Who doesn’t love their grandparents? They’re always there to give you a cuddle or sneak you a treats on the sly. With Grandparents’ Day coming up on 11th September, you’ve really got no excuse not to treat them! At Bishopstrow, we are here to help with our scrumptious Grandparents’ Day Lunch. We want to make sure that you and your grandparents have a fabulous day, and here are a few reasons why we love Granny and Grandpop so much…

  1. Grandmas have always got super kitchen skills. Victoria sponge? No trouble! Roast dinner? Of course!

  2. They’re full of great stories, even if you had heard a few of them more than once…

  3. There’s always an endless supply of jigsaw puzzles squirrelled away for a rainy day at Granny and Grandpops’.

  4. They’ll sneak you sweets, even if Mum and Dad have said no (especially that eternal grandparent favourite, the Werther’s Original!)

  5. Granny and Grandpop are always ready for a fun day out, whether it’s a trip to the museum, or just going to feed the ducks.

  6. Grandparents are great at looking after you when you’re poorly, because they’ve had plenty of practice looking after your parents. A hot Ribena and a cuddle and youll be right as rain.

  7. You will never be short of woolly jumpers, hats, scarves, socks, you name it!

  8. They are so wise! Always full of helpful advice.

  9. Christmas is always a treat, especially after Granny has a had a sherry and can’t stop hiccoughing!

  10. Speaking of Christmas, your grandparents are always really chuffed with whatever gift you give them. Now that’s no excuse to skimp on the gift giving, but it is nice to know…!

  11. They can always find the best in a bad situation and cheer you up when you’re down.

  12. There’s no such thing as a badly mad cup of tea when Granny and Grandpop are around!

  13. The biscuit tin at your grandparents’ house is always well stocked with the best biccies, bourbon anyone?

  14. They are always incredibly proud of everything you do and will support you no matter what.

If that hasn’t warmed the cockles of your heart, we don’t know what will. It’s National Grandparents’ Day on September 11th and here at Bishopstrow, we’d like to help you celebrate.
