Back in November of last year I resolved to tighten up my focus on grandparenthood at Square Sunshine. The idea being, that I would begin another blog where I could write about the things that happen in my life beyond my role as a Grandfather. Well I tried it, and after three months I’ve abandoned it.
There were a number of factors that caused me to pull down the shutters on the project, but there was one above all others. I found it impossible to pigeon-hole my thoughts and observations.
So, the blog description stands. What you read here – for as long as you continue reading here – will be the thoughts and observations of a Grandfather. They just might not always be related to grandchildren.
The catalyst in all this was an observation by a Grandmother, Belinda Brock. She noticed how thin on the ground blogging Grandfathers are, and posted a piece on her own blog to flag it up. After giving more thought, Belinda and I concluded, that blogging might work better for Grandfathers if they incorporate their grandparenting accounts into a larger picture. Which is what I’ve been doing for the best part of four years…apparently.
