Our Grannynet team is made up of real grandparents who provide us with written articles on their area of interest which range from reading to retirement. They are our “people to ask” so you can write to them for more specific advice than you may find on the forums. More on the Grannynet team.
Some of our Grannyset write blogs for us – these are regular updates on what is going on in their lives. Click on their names to read their blogs.

“First comment from M aged 4 was euggh PINK! They do come in blue and Cow as well but I hate the way everything comes in pink and blue…”
