13 Signs You Have The Best Granny In The World

13 Signs You Have The Best Granny In The World

I love my grandma, she is honestly one of the most amazing people on this planet. I expect you, as a grandson or granddaughter, to think that yours is the coolest, too. Here are a few signs to check if your nana is truly the most awesome in the world.

1. You can always count on her.

Either for a hug or a hot bowl of soup when you’re sick, you know your granny will always be there when you need her, because she always has since you were a little moaning and screaming baby. She’s endured you through all those years, as well as your mother’s complaints about you, but she’s still around.

2. You’d pick her food over any fancy restaurant.

She has the best cakes in the history of cakes. Traditional food or pseudo-modern beverages. No matter what it is, you know your granny does it better, and you like to brag about it. For example, my granny is the best at making crêpes. So good in fact, I had to share that with my classmates. Sometimes, it is even hard to share your granny’s food because it is so incredibly delicious.

3. You value her opinion.

You know well that your grandmother is full of wisdom and knowledge. Maybe she did not even go to school, but she went to the school of life. She learned the hard way what is best and what hurts. You know that your grandma will always give you the advice you need, and you will always do your best to take it, even though sometimes, you will try to compromise. But no matter what, she still stays the best granny.

4. You like to spend time with her.

Spending time with her is so important to you! Every minute spent in her house is a blessing. You enjoy every second she is around you. You are aware that these moments are precious and that one day or another, you will regret those moments if you don’t make the most of it. Try to get as many memories as you possibly can.

5. You miss her when you don’t see her.

This is self explanatory. When you miss your grandmother, your mood can vary from mild sadness to indescribable depressive states full of tears and mourning. The only solution is to go to her place and get your dose of grandma hugs. When you don’t see her for a long time, you feel like something is missing in your life. It doesn’t take too long to realize what it is.

6. You secretly adore the nicknames she gives you.

You frown when your uncles and aunts use the nickname that she gave you, even though you secretly love it. It might even slightly annoy you that they use it because it makes you feel like a child, but deep down you love it when your granny treats you like a little baby. The nicknames she gives you are just a reminder that she’s been around for so long, and knows you so well she can give you a name that has a special meaning.

7. You respect her because she’s the reason you’re alive.

Your mother gave you birth, and the other half of your genes comes from your father. However, if it wasn’t for your grandparents, your parents would not even exist. You know your granny is the reason you’re alive and you never forget to thank her for it. You feel blessed with this gift that she indirectly gave you: the gift of life.

8. Your inside jokes are unforgettable.

Even your parents think it is odd and weird. But you feel like those inside jokes are impossible to forget. From the silly puns to the awkward lapses, without forgetting all those jokes you’ve told each other, you’ve had quite a bunch of funny conversations. Nobody can take that from you.

9. You admire her and see her as a hero.

Apart from the fact that she gave birth to one of your parents, you see your granny for the strong woman she is. She might be old, and her muscles might be weak. Her arms might even be fragile, but you can see the history, the story of life, the joys and the pain that she went through, and you see the strength in her eyes. Every time your grandma smiles, you see an honest, loving woman that has sacrificed so much for you and your family. She is your hero.

10. You cannot imagine life without her.

Sometimes, you think about what your life would be like if your grandmother was not in it, and immediately your stomach is nothing but a big ball of anxiety and stress. Luckily enough, she is still around and you promised yourself to keep her for as long as you can, by taking care of her the way she deserves it and making sure she is doing good.

11. You want her to meet your children.

You want your grandma to be a great-grandma because she is already a great grandma. You want your kids to have the chance to meet her and spend time with her, if possible. You want them to taste her food and hear her stories because she is the greatest grandma in the world and you want your kids to know a bit of that too.

12. You like to impress her.

She occupies such a big space in your heart that it is important for you to make her proud. You always do your best to impress her by playing chess with her, demonstrating your linguistic skills, or even painting a portrait of her. You love to see her eyes get sparkly whenever you tell her something exciting. You would do anything that is humanly possible to make her the proudest grandma.

13. You know she loves you and she shows it well.

Your grandmother might have a special way of showing you that she loves you. For example, mine is not always good at saying, “I love you too”. She often responds to my love declarations with, “I know you love me”. But at the end of the day, one of her precious hugs gives you so much love that it doesn’t matter if she’s good at saying it or not. She will always shows you she loves you, and will always have a special way to do so.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
