Here is an interesting "slice of life" story about Elizabeth Cockburn who passed away on Sunday, aged 108.
I enjoyed reading about her life on the croft, and the quote from her grandson,
"She carried on her hobbies and was still knitting away three weeks ago. I couldn't say what the quality of the knitting was like, but she kept it up to the end."
Quite cool having a grand-son who is 53!
Link to the BBC story Oldest Scot dies at 108
God Bless you, Elizabeth. x K
Edit: Since I published this five minutes ago they have changed the story! She is now "one of the oldest people in Scotland" rather than "the oldest".
Guess there must be other 108 year old Scots setting the BEEB right then! x K
