I am down South visiting my granddaughter Lexi and her Mum and Dad, though the weather is not great but we are having fun. Lexi is a great laugh and is a real character running about and at the stage where she is in to everything. I missed all this with Stephen and Yvette as I was so tied up with work and it is a great joy to see her at this period of her life.
It is a beautiful place and life by the river is incredible. The Thames is full of boats, some wonderful barges and house boats and some that just spell affluence and money. There is so much wild life from ducks to coots and Swans, lots of people walking and enjoying the river a very different life from up North.
I have just heard that RAF Leuchars is closing and RAF Lossiemouth is staying, I am so glad for RAF Lossiemouth but what a blow for Leuchars a great area and was a huge part of my life, especially as I was Team Leader at Lockerbie when the aircraft disaster struck. There will be many upset people tonight. What a mess this country is in. Every day there is another scandal and the world is in a mess!
