17 reasons why grandparents will ALWAYS be the best humans in the world

You'll always be welcome at your grandparents house

Grandparents are a gift to the world.

They're always in your corner, support you when you need it, and most importantly will give you enough food that you have to be rolled out of their house.

Sure, you may have to spend hours teaching them how to use a computer, or which remote controls the TV and which controls the DVD player but regardless of their quirks, they will always be brilliant, brilliant people.

And so, to celebrate everyone's favourite relatives, here is a round-up of why grandparents are truly a blessing. We bet you recognise a few of these from your own nan and grandad...
