90 Not Out
A fun Sunday: lunch in the Scores Hotel in St Andrews (overlooking the "Chariots of Fire beach) to celebrate the 90th birthday of Hilary's aunt Dorothy Griffiths. Dorothy's late husband George was the minister who married us back in 1979, and it was great not only seeing Hilary's cousins and their spouses again but also meeting their cousins from Dorothy's side of the family. Hilary's mother has just come out of hospital after a back operation so wasn't well enough to make it in person, but she chatted to Dorothy on the phone after lunch.
Dorothy is an amazing woman, and we were joking that she should rebook the hotel for 2022 to celebrate her 100th. And you know, if anyone is going to make it to their centenary, it just might be Dorothy.
