How My Nan Got To Be Pure #Goals.

You know those people who just can’t wait to talk about their kids?

Well, I’m one of them.

But instead of talking about kids, I talk about my nan.

Seriously, in any given conversation I’m going to be using at least 60% of my brain to think of ways I can change the conversation to her. Why? Because she’s the light of my life, and I tell her that all of the time.

Also because she’s cool.

Really, really cool.

In order to demonstrate just how cool, I’m going to do something I never do.
I’m going to tell you a story and employ the most modern of literary devices – if we can really call them that – hashtags.

I don’t particularly like using them (in honesty they make me cringe) but they’re at least supposed to be pretty cool. If by using them I can demonstrate just how cool my nan is, well, it’s worth a few cringes on my part.

So here goes…

My nan, at the age of 94, laughs loudly every single day. In fact, there’s barely a time when she’s not laughing. #LifeGoals.


She dresses better than Queen Elizabeth. #StyleGoals.

She goes to the hairdressers every single week. #HairGoals.
She gets a manicure every two weeks. #BeautyGoals.


On a particularly eventful day in February – February 14th to be precise – she was out having lunch with her friends, like she does every few weeks. #SquadGoals.

A man, who had been admiring her over a number of weeks, gave her a Valentine’s Day rose. #CrushGoals.

She graciously accepted, but she wasn’t flattered. #CoolGoals.


When her friends asked her afterward if she’d like to see him for company she said, “I wouldn’t dream of it!” #IndependenceGoals.

She’s been a widow for over 4 years now, but she explained that after being married to my grandad for 61 years nobody could even come close to her standards. #LoveGoals. #TrueLoveGoals. ❀️


This month they would have been celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary. She still talks to him everyday.

(We all do.)

        My version of your Nan passed away in 2012, just shy of her 96th birthday. She taught me everything I know. I miss that woman every day. It’s heart warming to hear you have a similar relationship!
