    Congrats Nanny @Fibromite! Hope you're enjoying some time with your Grandson, that's so lovely. Do they live nearby?

    Nice to meet you on here. How's it going?

    Hello @Fibromite and a warm welcome to the community, it's great to have you with us. :)

    Congratulations on the birth of your first grandchild, that must be very exciting! My eldest is only 12 so a long way off for me yet. Being a full-time carer can be very exhausting, do you get any help at all?
