Grandchildren and Business – A Great Combination.

Grandchildren and Business – isn’t it great when you can have the two together.

One of the great joys in our life is being a Grandparent, we love spending time with our Grandchildren. As we live interstate we don’t see then as often as we would like. One of the advantages of our business is that we can work while travelling, as long as we have a phone and internet connection, we are good to go. This doesn’t mean we are always working; just we can when we want or need to.

Just last week we needed to be in Sydney for a SendOutCards seminar, so of course we took the opportunity to catch up with two of our Grandchildren.  We love being able to combine business with pleasure. We especially love the big hugs we receive when we catch up with them.


Our Grandson always loves our visits and now he is at school he writes our visit on his whiteboard. It’s lovely to know our visits are rated so highly. When we arrive he is always anxiously waiting out the front. One of the things he loves doing is playing board games. He loves to show us his latest game and insists that we play a game with him. Last time we played Pokémon and we are still a bit unsure of the rules.

The only time we could see our Granddaughter on this trip was on the day of her parent teacher interviews. So Sue went along with her mother to the interview. Having three generations represented in her interview impressed the teacher. She said that it was rare to have both a pupil’s mother and grandmother present in the same meeting. Ron went out and did a bit of work, as he thought it may have too overwhelming to have us all present. After the interviews we all went out for dinner. I am sure our granddaughter was very proud to have Grandma as well as Mum sit in on the interviews. It was interesting that now she is in high school there were no big hugs until we were away from the school. Hugging Grandma at school is a bit uncool.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Our 10 year old Grandson who now lives in Canada recently visited Australia. He and the family had not been here since he was a baby. As soon as he learned about their trip, his only request was to hold a Koala.

After much research it was discovered that Queensland was one of the few states in Australia where it is legal to hold a Koala. They choose Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary as the place to go. Thursday seemed to work the best for everyone. We booked tickets for everyone, including a tour of the Koala enclosure and a photo holding a Koala. As Sue’s elderly Dad was also joining us we also organized a mobility scooter for him.

The day finally arrived. Our Grandson was not well, suffering a burst ear drum, but nothing was going to stop his visit. On arriving at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary we booked in for our Koala experience and set off to explore. I can recommend Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary as a place to visit for all overseas visitors. The Kangaroo enclosure was the first stop. Here you could walk among the Kangaroos and feed them. A couple of joeys were hopping around as well as many larger ones. (more…)

Talkin’ About My Generation

Talkin’ About My Generation

Talkin’ about My Generation are words from the hit song “My Generation” by the English rock band The Who, first released in 1965 and which became one of their most recognisable songs.

Remember the words:

“People try to put us d-down (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby” and so on.

Well, the song kept going around in my head the other day and it got me to thinking about my generation – The Baby-Boomers. Baby boomers were born between the years 1946 and 1965, during the demographic post World War II baby boom. (more…)
