Me & Mine

Updated March 2019

Welcome to my world


Thanks for popping in.  I'm Sue and Granny's World is my blog, my online diary if you like.  Where I document the highs and lows and the interests in my life. I started this blog in 2009.  I hope you find something of interest

My hobbies and interests

Knitting - I love knitting socks, baby clothes, blankets and shawls, anything really other than toys - check out my Knitting Projects Page
Cooking - I love to bake, and I make a mean Victoria Sandwich Cake.  I also love to make preserves, nothing better than a kitchen filled with jammy smells.

Reading - historical, mystery, you name it I'll read it.

Gardening - nothing better when you have the time than to make a beautiful garden - check out my Old Garden page

Motorbiking - Hubby has a Harley, though we don't get out on it as much as we used too

Travelling/Holidays - we like to get about check out my Travelling page

Regular readers of the blog will know that 2017 was all change for Granny’s World. 

We moved house, retired and half of the family moved to France - check out their new venture - Chateau de la Ruche, they can also be seen on Channel 4's Escape to the Chateau DIY Series 2

The grandchildren are growing up fast. The baby is now nearly 3!
