Grateful Thanks.

Thank you for all the lovely messages - here and elsewhere.  They really do help and I am so glad to have your support - along with our wonderful family.  The clan mustered from America, Australia and France and the rest of our extended family from the UK.
 I shall be burbling on for some time.
We had this song played at the end of a beautiful ceremony.  It was the same song and singer but a more haunting sound with pipes.

Rosneath: today the land line went peculiar and for an hour or two didn't work. Magically it is back to normal so it has been a good day.
