Memories come in many guises and the best one today was posted on my daughter Liz's blog - Life at the Gables. Thanks Liz.
The photo you see posted there is one of my favourites, taken without  her Dad's knowledge. We were out and about at Lossiemouth beach, a place that her Dad loved.
All those years ago - memories that tug at the heart, memories of love.

A new arrival

Sometime early this morning my great niece gave birth to a daughter - making me a great - great aunt! With the wonders of technology, I have seen a picture of her and of course she looks beautiful. 
The little one may have some health problems (we await news of the test results) so I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers that all will be well. Whatever the outcome the new addition to the family will be surrounded with love.

North of the Border

Here I am with what is known as 'the Scottish Office' - the part of my family who are north of the border! This place is so relaxing with it's wide open spaces of sky and beautiful scenery, I feel as though I have been here for days instead of only thirty six hours.
As usual, my s-i-l John is head chef and I am provided with what he once called 'waist widening dinners' - this was placed before me last night and I had to join in the evening walk around the village to try and work off some of the calories!

I should add that it was delicious.
The weather was glorious yesterday so we went out and about, making the traditional visit to Brodie Castle (tea and cake anyone?) and then to the fantastic viewing point over Findhorn Bay. The beauty and the the silence of the surroundings is better than any tonic.
Liz took some self portraits, but we laughed so much I doubt they will be worth showing to any one else. I might scrapbook one of them for posterities sake! I don't like having my photo taken at the best of times but had to 'pose' whilst Liz played with he new pocket sized camera.
