My Easter was spent, as it always is, at my grandparents’ house. They organised the usual Easter Egg hunt (even though us grandkids are now aged 15-24, it never gets old) and then we sat back, scoffed chocolate and played games.
I can confidently claim to have a hilarious family – even if it’s partly unintentional. Grandad is my favourite in humour department – he’s the most sarcastic, witty, sharp Grampy ever.
At one point my Nan turned to him to ask if ermine was a type of animal. I maintain it’s a type of fur coat. She was cheekily trying to get a 10 point answer on Animal, Vegetable, Mineral. As if, Nan.
Anyway, Grandad isn’t a fan of the straight-forward answer. Or listening to the question.
Nan: ‘Geoffrey, is -‘
Grandad: ‘Yes, but only in spring and every Thursday in March’.
‘I thought plug-hole was a euphemism!’
Grandpops was comically horrified.
You know when you find a home movie from your childhood – or your parents’ childhoods? And it feels like finding treasure? Isn’t that the best thing ever?
With that in mind, I decided to do a little bit of filming during the day. Just because I feel like I’ll regret not capturing these cute little moments.
I don’t know, maybe future generations will want to look back on my collection of Dubsmashes and Snapchats, but I don’t think that’s too likely…
Shall I say the classic vlogger thing now?
