end of an era

Last week I heard that an old family friend, Lady Hilda Morton, had died aged 101. I knew her all the time I was growing up, she always took an interest in my mother and therefore in me and my brothers. And she loved to look after people – she would regularly hold coffee mornings in her house in Edinburgh for 60 people or more, doing all the work herself. Also she held a big dinner party for me the night before Emma and I got married. These things are probably what kept her going for so long. Here’s an article from the BBC about her, from a couple of years ago.
