‘Twitter has adopted my grandad’ – BBC News


How many coats do you have on? Two please. How many? Just two please. Mama how would you describe Grandad? Huh? How would you describe Grandad? I can’t describe him. He’s not what you’d expect from an 82-year-old grandad. He still kind of does everything
around the house. He does all the gardening,
he runs a hiking club. The hip ball and the socket sits over it like that. Mine’s basically like, instead of a ball and a cup it’s basically like a cube and a dish, so mine sits on it like that. And I’d be at work and get halfway through the day and just be crying in pain and not be able to carry on. I can’t bend over at the waist yet to grab stuff so he has got me a grabber. For him to be able to say: ‘OK, well, if no one’s around then you can do this and you can do that.’ It’s useful cos they don’t tell you stuff like that when you leave hospital. My nan developed quite bad arthritis kind of younger than you usually would and she will not leave the house
without red lipstick and red nails, so for the last kind of 30-odd years he has been painting her nails. He just offered to do mine. I didn’t even know that he did it, I was always under the impression that she did it for herself but apparently not. Surprised me how good he was, it was better than when I do them for myself really. Where’s the keys? In my pocket so wait until I’ve done this. Sorry? I’ve got an important job at the moment. I was like: ‘Oh my god look at this!’ I was waking up in the middle of the night. It has just gone crazy. They’re the least technological grandparents in the world. They don’t have phones, they’ve got one mobile phone that
they share between them and I went to put credit on it once and they hadn’t topped it up since 2011. I’ve had a couple of older women message me asking if he’s single. Obviously he isn’t cos you can hear my nan in the background and she gets a little bit jealous. I don’t think she’s a massive fan of it. They don’t make them like him any more. Everyone’s been saying it, they said they’ve kind of, they’ve given him too much of all the good stuff and now it’s all run out.
