say hello to granny leanne

Granny Leanne

Leanne is my granny (and a big fan of our drinks). I’m currently living with her while I buy a flat

I’m sure she could teach us a thing or two about living a long and happy life, so I thought I’d share a few things that I've learnt from Granny Leanne:

1) Work hard
Leanne heads off to work every day as a full-time medical secretary (at the age of 78)

2) Play hard
Leanne loves to socialise. She’s an excellent hostess and always offers you ‘the other half’ of your drink, regardless of how many previous ‘halves’ you’ve had

3) Eat well
Leanne doesn’t like to cook. Instead, she cooks her food how M&S tell her to cook it on the packet
Now, that’s not just cooking… that’s Marks & Spencer cooking

4) Keep fit
Leanne’s not a big fan of exercise. Every time she feels like exercising, she lies down until the feeling goes away (thank you to Robert M. Hutchins for that quote)

5) Drink well
Leanne is a big fan of our little drinks. She likes to take an innocent smoothie in her lunchbox to work every day – and she always enjoys reading the label(s)

And, as the proof is in the pudding, here's a photo of her lunch:


In true granny-style, she has a rubbish picture that I did when I was a child on the wall in the downstairs loo

Framed, of course. Here it is:


I’ll be moving out shortly into my new home

Granny Leanne asked me whether I could simply buy the flat, but keep living with her

Truth be told, I’d love too
