Well the kids are back at school, the nights are drawing in and the leaves are falling from the trees. I love this time of year! I love Halloween, Bonfire Night and getting organised nice and early for Christmas. I have a big family and some years I find it really hard knowing what to buy everyone. From experience, I know that the gifts I have loved opening the most are the ones that are personal or thoughtful. They are the presents that really make me smile.
There are some people in life that make our lives brighter and grandparents are often those very people. If there is anyone that deserves celebrating, it’s all those wonderful Grandmas, Grandpas, Nannas and Grandads, Nains and Taids (that's Welsh!) in our lives. It’s only often until we have children ourselves, do we learn to appreciate our parents. They offer so much love and support without asking anything in return yet it’s not always easy to let them know how much they are appreciated.
