Proud Mum

Mums are allowed to be proud aren't they? This is Nick, our 26 year old little boy ( the big one in the photo - the little one is his cousin John).
Nick has just phoned from a posh hotel in Glasgow to tell us that he has won an award. (Drum roll) He has been awarded Multi Media Journalist of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
He is a journalist at http://www.scotsman.com/ but is also a music journalist and writes for the Scotsman's online music section The Radar.
Not bad for a wee boy who's teacher in P2 thought he needed remedial help in English, and who went on to get a First Class Honours Degree in English from Edinburgh University.
It is OK to be bursting with pride for your son, isn't it!
Mind you, he's a lazy big lump who torments the life out of our long suffering cat, who comes home for the weekend and  hogs the computer, who only reluctantly dries the dishes and who hardly ever changes his sheets!
We love ya, Nick. Well done!


  1. You have every right to be proud of your son and I wish him lots of success in the future!

  2. 'Course it is, I know, I've got 3 (2 still teenagers!)! I always tell mine we're proud anyway, but to achieve all that despite what that silly teacher said is great. One of my boys' teachers said that as soon as they took the wind out of his sails they'd be able to get somewhere with him. He's predicted 8 1's in the Standards he's about to start taking! Some teachers shouln't be allowed to teach & others can be so inspiring.

  3. How lovely to hear a nice story for a change. You must be so proud of him.What a boost for his career.You will no doubt be celebrating this weekend. Enjoy!

  4. How wonderful for all of you...you should be very proud!! Congrats Nick...;-)
