Through a glass ... brightly...?
The Scots have a reputation for being warm and friendly. I've always found them to be so. Nevertheless I was completely unprepared for the kindness and thoughtfulness of one particular family. A couple of days ago a parcel arrived from Glencairn Crystal, based near Glasgow. Inside were two champagne glasses, one engraved with an image of Katie, one with an image of Ella Bella!
These beautiful glasses were sent as a gift by the Davidson family, from Glasgow. The very same family who came - from Glasgow - to last year's Ella Bella concert in Hatfield. That was honour enough! But the father, Scott, works for the company and in exchange for a signed copy of Katie in Scotland, he organised these really exquisite gifts, which I just can't get over. The glasses themselves are so beautiful. But it is the kindness of these people that has really touched me. Obviously I shall treasure them. Aren't they wonderful? Take a look at their website, they can engrave anything it seems... And to the Davidson family: THANK YOU. I shall think of ways of making it up to you!
