Another Grandchild

As I hinted in a previous blog, the number of grandchildren I have has again increased with a daughter born to my son and daughter-in-law in Glasgow. She was early by a few weeks and is quite small but she is “perfect” according to her dad. I can’t wait to see her and my other grandkids when I have a trip home for my Winter Break. Can’t say I’m as keen to experience the Scottish winter weather but I hear that hot-water bottles are already awaiting my arrival.

A friend sent me details of an interesting website called They send books around the world with no delivery charges and you can order them in different currencies. It’s a handy site for you all to know about. Last Saturday a number of us went to the England v Brazil football match which was played in Doha. The atmosphere was electric and the whole experience was amazing.
