Scotmum oh wow!! Should i be horrified or amused  ??? ;D

Such is life  ;D. It's stories like this that 'adds meat to the bones' of family history research. We obviously have no influence over what or ancestors did or didn't do in their lifetime, and whilst we might not always approve of it, we need to acknowledge the bad with the good, otherwise we only complete part of the picture that forms the rich tapestry of their life.
