“Adrienne and I are as daft as Gail and Ursula. After a top night out at the ERN dinner, we dragged our-selves up bright and early to take part in the Jog Scotland Santa 5k in Strathclyde Park. Always a good event, flat scenic course, loads of fancy dresses and a goody bag at the end. I was pacing Douglas (my nephew, Adrienne’s son) round his first ever 5k. The inevitable happened. Spent the first 4.8 km saying things like “slow down Douglas you’ll burn out” and in the last 200 metres he took off like a ferret down a hole and no way could I keep up with him. Oh the joys of youth. Times 31 + for us both. And to round things off one of my friends I’d gone through with got a spot prize of a box of Tunnock’s caramel wafer. What a good day! Happy Christmas and a good New Year
