Well to be fair all the women in my Mums family were a bit mad. Proper mad that is. Not just peculiar. One of them was actually certified and carried away to the loony bin in a straight-jacket. They held grudges for decades so you very rarely saw more than 2 of them at any one tie. So here’s a rare photo from when they were too old to remember what they’d fallen out about. I think it was taken at my Auntie Margarets 80th birthday but as I’d fallen out with my Mum at the time I can’t be 100% sure. They’re aw lang deid noo anyways so it disnae really matter. From left to right, Grace Hamilton, Eva Martin and Margaret Early – three of the Robinson sisters.
