Queen's Baton Relay 2014

Greig nominated his Mum to take part in the Queen's Baton Relay months ago and we've been looking forward to it for a long time:)

He nominated her because she does so much for others. She does so much for us and she gives her time and energy so generously, she is a fantastic role model. Brodie has asked several times why Granny is carrying the baton and we always give the same answer. Because your Granny is so kind, we tell him. Because it's as simple as that.

She will be squirming as she reads this but I'm saying it anyway, thank you for graciously accepting the nomination. You deserve the recognition for all you contribute to the community and for all you do. And for wearing tracksuit bottoms and trainers which is normally your worst nightmare and pulling it off with aplomb.

Grier is confused by her normally glamorous Granny sporting garish man made fibres. And trainers

Morag posed for photos with the kids, and then she was off! Seriously, she was flying:) No leisurely stroll for this baton bearer!

See? She's fast!

Not to worry though, Grier insisted on reliving the whole relay at least 2323592594 times in the garden yelling 'Go Granny Go!' the whole way so I think Morag probably ran about 5 miles in total.
