Family is everything:
I have a daughter Alison aged 32 and two grandchildren aged 9 and 2. I am the baby of my family at 52. I have two brothers and three sisters. I am close to one of my sisters and one of my brothers.
I am a true foodie:
I love cooking true Scottish food such as mince and tatties, chops and homemade soup. When I was growing up we knew what we were having every night as my parents never changed the menu. I always remember the huge pot of soup being made on a Saturday night for the Sunday dinner followed by roast beef and all the trimmings. My dad loved baking and on a Saturday afternoon the smell from the kitchen was so good. He would bake custard pies, apple pies and lots more wonderful cakes.
During lockdown I have been baking for my friends and we all meet up at the canal. I have my dog, Lenny with me and we all go for a walk, and I hand out my baking. Its been great to socially distance meet with friends and get some needed exercise and a chat.
