SHE'S one busy lady!
But Mollie Hyland, 83, will make time early next week for a trip to London.
After all, it's not often that you get nominated as Grandparent of the Year.
Mollie, of Waterloo, is one of five nominees for the Age Concern contest.
And she is tickled pink that she will be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in the House of Commons next Tuesday, when the results are announced.
Mollie has a large, close-knit family - eight children, 23 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
She has also fostered two children.
She'll be joined in London by 12-year-old grand-daughter Kate Cryer, of Kirkheaton, who nominated her for the award.
Mollie, who was born in the west of Ireland, said: "The nomination came out of the blue, but I'm not nervous.
"I was in London and at the Commons a few weeks ago, as one of my daughters is married to an MP and we had a family christening there.
"All my family are lovely and I'm very proud of them all.
"Being a grandparent is a different responsibility from being a parent. It's a labour of love, but I wouldn't be without them".
Mollie is a member of the Union of Catholic Mothers at the English Martyrs Church in Dalton.
And every week she joins students at Almondbury High School in various projects as part of the Bridge The Gap scheme, helping children understand the perceptions of the elderly.
She said: "I love being with young people. They love hearing my tales of when I was growing up on a farm in Ireland.
"And I love sport - especially that David Beckham. That gives me an interest with the young ones."
Kate said: "Grandma's house is `HQ' where all the family meet. She is a hugely caring person who looks after everyone. She has worked hard all her life, but is still a happy lady with lots of love to give."
