I was asked last minute to look after a 37-member tour group from Indonesia, a third of whom are about my age. One of them asked me, “Do you have any grandchildren?” Unlike Westerners who generally can't place my age correctly, this lot is from my part of the world so they’d be able to gauge my age fairly accurately. Still, it was a bit of a shock to be reminded I’ve moved from “Aunty” status (mentioned in blog entry: You know you’re getting old when…) to “grandparent” status! Not old now, but ANCIENT!
