    DS only has one pair living of grandparents (my parents) he calls them Nanny and Grandad

    He knows his fathers parents as Nanna Coral and Poppa Jim but never met them as they passed away before he was born so he only knows them from photos.

    My grandad (his great grandad) he called grumpy (couldn't say great grandpa properly lol)
