The Family had multiple choice options yesterday. So I donned my Uncle Graham hat and fed the children and friend and then took Catriona to her school drama night in which she was performing.
This is Catriona's last year at this school before she goes off to boarding school so I will have seen her right through from pre-school to her senior school and never missed a prizegiving nor, so far as I can recall, the annual drama evening.
I feel very privileged and very thankful to have had this opportunity in life at a time when I've been able to give more time to it. It is one of the very few 'if only' things in my life: if only I had made the time from my work to attend all my own children's functions. Next time......
In the meantime I am very thankful that I've had a second chance.
