Old age commands no respect in our society. On the contrary, particularly for women, it is usually regarded as something shameful, to be lied about and disguised as long as possible. I have always been bluntly honest about my age and when my daughter, pregnant with her first child, asked what I would like to be called on its arrival, I had no hesitation in saying GRANDMA. I was about to arrive at the top of the family tree and intended to make the most of my new status.
Wonder what it feels like to be a great-grandmother?
