Return of the native

I wish that l could say l’ve been on some exotic holiday or that l’d been spending my time creating another blog to be premiered with a roll of the drums and twitch of the curtain but - no. Nothing of the kind!
Truth is ‘life has just got in the way’, as my dear friend Merle once said. A seemingly endless parade of people, events, calamities and celebrations all intervening and intertwining to tie up the hours into days and days into weeks.
Firstly, heartfelt thanks to all my friends who left their kind thoughts and wishes during my absence. Much appreciated friendship is precious and warming.

But happy I am to be back in the land of the blogging l will regale my recent happenings in reverse order – just to be different.

So here tonight is a photograph of my daughter ‘M’ as she left the other evening on her way out to her Prom. Here is also a snatch of video from the Ceilidh.

Ah, nice to see you back - though I too have been not in blogging mode either much. I think its great that Scottish teenagers enjoy dancing. My only ceilidh was near Elgin, and I was amazed that trainers and kilts were worn as everyday party gear by the boys, and disco and traditional dances equally enjoyed.

I must say it was one of the highlights of my entire life - doing the Gay Gordons with a man in a kilt!!! Wonderful *sigh*
