I’ve just rung a writing friend who I am trying to interview for a feature on inspirational women over 65, and she sounded breathless, as she often does.
‘Oh,’ she gasped. ‘I’m so sorry – I really do want to talk to you, but my grandson’s just rung. His girlfriend’s in the bath, having contractions, so I’ve told him to time them and ring me back.’ She giggled. ‘I have to say, I hadn’t expected to become a great grandmother the day after my daughter’s 50th birthday, but there you go!’
You can see why I want to write about her, don’t you?
But I digress. Debio has nominated me for the Awesome Dude award. How very cheering on a very grey, damp Cornish morning. Thank you so much!
I have to pass this on to five people who are:-

And here's another quote.
"No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power."
P.J. O'Rourke, writer (1947- )
You can tell he wasn't a politician.
