Proof that I'm a Nana...

By PaisleyJade - Thursday, July 16, 2009

When I was young, I just couldn't wait to get up super early on Saturday mornings and watch the cartoons... now I think it's a real treat if I catch the 6 o'clock news while I drink a cup of tea.

Tonight I decided to curl up on the couch, crochet my granny square blanket while sipping tea and watching a documentary. I felt really spoilt... I'm starting to get worried.

I still enjoy a good Tintin or Asterix comic now and then, but I must say, the cartoons don't get me up early in the morning anymore.

S.O.S. to other Nana's out there... please tell me I'm not the only one???

p.s. What was your favourite cartoon show growing up? Mine were Adam Ant, Snorks, Scooby Doo, Smurfs, Danger Mouse and Fraggle Rock.

Oh, the memories!

  1. I'm very the same now ... a cuppa, a bit of telly... needlework. So relaxing! Fraggle Rock and the smurfs were the two programmes that I would run to watch. The other week I found season 2 of fraggle rock on dvd at an op-shop for a few dollars. So good!

  2. mmmm...i think i'm more concerned that you're matching your cups to your crafts!!!!

  3. I LOVE that cup! Saturday morning was always the multi-coloured swapshop in our house - mom banned tiswas (?) because she didn't lie the phantom pie thrower!
    and I was certainly not happy about the 4.40am wake up I had this morning - sigh.

  4. I LOVE the blanket..Simple but too gorgeous..

    I'd have to say Scooby-Doo & the Smurfs were my favorite to watch..along with the Jetsons..

    Now back to that blanket..i'm a crocheter..and sadly I need to refresh on my granny square abilities..Can you send me in a pattern direction of starting one?



  5. Who have a married?

  6. Bugs Bunny and Donald Duck hands down!!! I added a couple of photos and a video link to my last post you may want to see.

  7. Me too! Proof that I'm a nana - I go to bed at 9.30pm - sometimes (gasp) at 8.30pm!!

    We used to get up early to watch Batman & Robin but also loved Scoobydoo, Fred Flintstone and Dangermouse too...

  8. Dangermouse was really cool...

  9. the cartoons of today suck in comparison.. that's why 6am doesn't cut it anymore.
    looney toons all the way - esp bugs bunny and road runner.

  10. All cartoons rocked back in the day! Loved those 3 in a row on a saturday morning - Atom Ant, Precious Pup & Granny Sweet and then the Hilbilly Bears - Heh heh heh.

  11. love your 'fruit salad' blanket!!

  12. Love that mug - granny squares mug! Loved Fraggle Rock, Captain Caveman, Smurfs. I still love a good Tintin read, and am trying to get the kids into it.
