What a summer !

Here I am back in Qatar after a very memorable summer break. Beautiful scenery and wonderful friends in Vancouver. Wonderful friends in Chattanooga, too – and we explored all there was to see there. On to London and Scotland to see family & friends and to attend a special event in Edinburgh. I was invited to Holyrood Palace, to a dinner hosted by Prince Philip in his role as Chancellor of Edinburgh University. I took my friend Liz and we had a great time. I also saw  ‘A Comedy of Errors’ during the ‘Bard on the Beach’ festival in Vancouver and Sarah managed to drag herself away from her amazing son, Santiago, to come with me to see ‘Les Miserables’ in London. Excitement to the end. The day before I flew back, my free copies of ‘Testing Times’ arrived so I was able to sign and post them before I left. Then the taxi driver and I headed to the airport in Glasgow, along with the world’s press, as the Lockerbie bomber flew out a short time before I did. Oh, and my 4th grandchild, due at Christmas to Peter & Jill, is a girl. Details of ‘Testing Times’ are now on my website and any day now should be available to buy on the Amazon websites (or through links which will be set up on my website for folks in the UK.)
