Hello. My name is Margaret. You can call me Marg. My kids call me Goose ( mother goose) and my grand children call me “grandma”. I am a modern day grandmother who loves her 10 grand children and 1 step grandson. As a teacher who has recently retired, I long to share the ups and downs of this exciting grand mothering experience. This blog is also about lifestyle, gardening and anything that matters to me. As a resident of beautiful Mapleton on the Blackall Ranges in Queensland, I like have a passion for children’s picture books, art and travelling.
How do I manage this “grandma thing”? What is romancing with grandma like! I certainly don’t have all the answers nor do I think that my wisdom hasn’t been shared before. So I may pass on some tips, favourite books and possessions, an insight into country living – anything that ignites inspiration, celebration , frustration and truth.
I am determined, organised, and a worrier. A woman who likes cuddles and the tender connections that children bring. I love romantic poetry and feeling loved. I love the sparkle and shine of children’s literature; creativity, new words from the mouth of babes. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
