Callum with Dominie
Fourteen years ago today Callum Jack was born, Gillian and Paul’s third child, their only son and our first grandson. He was a beautiful baby and grew into a lovely toddler with big, bright, blazing blue eyes and blond hair which eventually turned brown.
Callum is a strong swimmer and a keen sailor
It is hard to reconcile today's youth with the deep voice with the tiny boy that he once was. He is a gentle soul, kind, considerate, easily hurt (although he tries hard not to show it) strong and capable. Since early childhood he has watched his parents and learnt his skills from them – I would trust him to chop wood, wire a plug, tend a sick animal, cook a tasty meal and many other things I know I could not, would not have done at his age – or even older!
He is growing into a fine young man, a credit to his parents and a joy to us all.
Happy Birthday, Callum and Many, Many Happy Returns of the Day!
