12 Signs You’re a Twenty Something Grandma

I’ve always been a bit of a grandma at heart always opting for nights in over nights out, cups of tea over glasses of wine and pyjamas over clothes. I feel like having a baby (or maybe growing further into my twenties) has allowed me to fully embrace that side of me instead of having FOMO (fear of missing out) and feeling like I need to “keep up with the Jones’s”. Surely I cant be the only one that likes to fully embrace their inner old woman? Anything on this list relate to you too?

  1. Your ideal Christmas gift would be a new pair of slippers, or better still bed socks!
  2. You regularly consider taking up knitting (or you already knit)
  3. Your ideal “night on the town” is a night at your local bingo hall. You’ve checked out Bingo Kings, you’ve learnt the lingo and you’ve bought yourself a bingo pen – you’re good to go.
  4. Having a bath is a real occasion – you block out diary space for that goodness AND you pop into Lush to mark the occasion.
  5. You secretly hi-five yourself when your friends cancel plans as it saves you having to make up an excuse.
  6. You consider 10pm a “late night”
  7. You thoroughly research every appliance you purchase (bonus points if you read the user guide too)
  8. You own more than one pair of “sensible shoes”
  9. Pyjamas are LIFE
  10. You own more than five cardigans
  11. You watch property shows on TV
  12. You’ve got enjoyment from The Antiques Roadshow
