Memories to treasure with Fill & Tell

It’s probably bordering on impolite but my kids do love asking their grandparents about life “in the olden days”. Their definition of the “olden days” is somewhat skewed – it’s loosely defined by them as a time including the 1850s (because we visited a living museum representing the Victorian gold rush period); a time when boys had to wear shorts all year round (because my father told them about getting his first pair of trousers when he was twelve years old); and the time when Cyndi Lauper ruled the radio (because I know all the words to ‘olden days’ music).

So here’s a very nice way of storing all those “olden day” memories – it’s called Fill & Tell.

Fill & Tell For My Grandchild is an album designed for grandparents to share the story of their lives with grandchildren. Each chapter focuses on a different time of life, so grandparents can share memories of their own childhood and upbringing as well as stories about their grandchild’s parents and the mischief they got up to when they were young. I like the fact that it includes chapters on the everyday things such as food that was served and household chores – kids might be surprised that once there was no such thing as a washing machine or dishwasher!

Fill & Tell For My Grandchild makes a wonderful gift – either buy it for grandparents to complete at their leisure or alternatively, grandparents could buy it as a gift for their grandchild. It costs £24.99 and shipping to Australia can be arranged directly through Fill & Tell.
