A Special Visitor...

We had a special visitor on the 13th January: Margot Macmillian 
and she is 92 years young! She was brought in by her daughter Liffy 
to see the tapestry. Margot, also known as Maggie and "Gee"
 by her grandchildren is originally from Tolaga Bay
Gisborne where she and her husband ran a 1400 acre sheep farm. 
Maggie used to spin wool and knit using a method
 called kiwi knit - knitting with un-spun wool. 
She now lives in Whangarei at Selwyn Park Rest Home in Maunu. 
 Margot thinks she's 98 as she wants that letter from the 
Queen ASAP!  We hope you will come and visit again soon!

I don't know if it is just my computer but I have been unable to view the ends of lines on your posts recently.

i.e. first line ended at "Margot" next line at "come".

That was first and second lines of second paragraph.

I will go amend it now. Thanks for the email, Susan.
