People who matter to me
My husband Frank and I have been together since 1981.
We have two wonderful sons – Alan and Paul – who are intelligent, caring and sensitive young men passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion.
I am the daughter of Betty and Billy, whose lives were dedicated to their five kids. Although they are no longer with us, their legacy lives on through their children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren.
My three sisters – Liz, Lorraine and Wilma – still live in East Kilbride near me. My brother, Willie, lives with his family in Blackburn in Lancashire.
The picture below was taken when I was 11 years old at Heathery Knowe Primary School in East Kilbride. I’m the glaikit one in the bottom left of the photo.
You can tell by our ragged fringes that haircuts were administered by our parents!
