Everyone: Cheers! As I told a friend, it's a great job description. Babs does all the work for 9 months, and I get to bask in congratulations from people who don't even know her. If only all accolades took this little work!

Best thing about grandparenting is that the parents are so grateful when you take little'un off their hands, if only for a few hours, as if you were doing them a huge favour!

At long-ish last Mrs Sioni has a date for an operation to one of her feet, which we hope will reduce pain and swelling. It's scheduled for September 7th.

I'll put up a prayer request later - for now we're grateful that we have a date!

Relief and rejoicing in the North East household.

Relief - On Tuesday my father had a scan which showed that what might have been a tumour, wasn't.

Rejoicing - Today the North East Loon heard that he will graduate with a Desmond (2:2) in November. (He should have graduated in June, but he failed a module and had to resubmit.) Whilst at Uni he has saved up enough (!) to be self-supporting for a year (cheap flat, Tesco value food) and intends to live the life of a starving writer in a garret. It's going to be interesting!

Yes, he is. He has had two children's books published, so he does know what's involved. He also gets paid to visit schools, through a scheme run by the Scottish Book Trust. It's not much, but it's something.

Brilliant news North East Quine - you missed "prize-winning children's author"

(although it's not easy to Google him as Google is convinced I want the better known author with a similar name, probably not helped as I remember that his name is similar to set up the search).

Yes, who knew his name would be so confusing? When he was little he used to love seeing "his" name on the Alexander McCall Smith books.

Here he is.

His books are available at all good bookshops!

God willing, all will go to plan. I'm so grateful that she has this trip to get her through the chemo and radiotherapy.

Sometimes the sunshine helps feel that way, or a really good sleep.

I have a practice of finding three things for which I am grateful every morning at breakfast. I cover all sorts of topics in this.

High time to give thanks for some of my requests here from the last few weeks: [Hot and Hormonal]

As I posted, I got accepted on a further training course relevant to my profession and my job. Also, one of my (not so rich) cousins's sponsored the course fee for now, which will be paid back by work at some point - while some other (rather wealthy) cousins weren't able to support... Camel and eye of the needle and all that. A bit of an eye opener on the burden of the reach, which seem real. - They're still lovely people, though. [Smile]

Again, your prayer for requests on here is very effective and clearly felt, and makes a huge difference to me, and I'm sure a lot of us who post and pray!

Thank you all! [Overused] [Axe murder]

Ah yes... and the diagnostic assessement in my job, which is actually part of my training course, went well... mostly, I got loads of extremely helpful tips and hints on how to improve certain aspects of my work - sometimes you just know there's something that needs to be changed, but cannot fathom what!

That's what the course is for, and I'm learning! Should make work and life considerably easier in the end, once you get the new routines up and going!

Thanks, and thanks be to God. [Angel]

I think this may the right place to park a personal note... Yesterday my Dear Old Mother died in the nursing home in the north east of Scotland, and I am immensely thankful that she did it peacefully and in her right mind; my youngest sister with her - a good way to go. She was 95 and had been in fragile health for a long time. Some of her engagingly unverifiable anecdotes have appeared around here a few times, so now I am the hapless guardian of family folklore with little hope of ever being able to prove a single word of stories that are much too good to forget. We have to come up with an inscription for a marker for her, and so far, I favour "Born a Cockney; Died a Teuchter".

My commiserations ST: a wonderful way for your mother to end her life, full of years and in her right mind, but for those of us left behind it can make it harder. Yes, being the repository of all the family legends can make one feel ancient: we recorded my late Papa about his uncles and aunts and my sons have been entranced to listen to them, not just their grandfather's voice but all the scrapes he recounted about 4 young men all of whom served in WWI and lived to tell the tale.

A week ago my grandmother (who is 103) had a fall, and hit and cut her head. It was an accident that could have done terrible damage. To our amazement and gratitude, none of the awful things that could have happened did happen: she is sore, and has stitches in her forehead, but is otherwise back to normal. [Yipee]

Wonderful news, Tobias. The mother of a friend of mine fell a week ago and received a very black eye and cheek. No broken bones. She had just moved, very unwillingly, into residential care. She was already quite disoriented from the move and the fall made it worse. She is beginning to settle but does not know herself in mirror because of the bruises.
