This blog is one I started when the snows of 2009 arrived in November to keep the family informed about life in Glasgow.
I married Margaret in 1970 we had three sons Steven, Philip and Matthew dotted about the UK. Sadly Margaret passed away in January 2016.
The website address is www.carrickdrive.co.uk and hopefully will evolve over time. The blog is the best pace to start as that is likely to be updated regulary.
Of interest might be the family history section which looks at the Abbott and Howat families when they finally linked up in 1970.
The Abbott family moved from Kidlington, Oxfordshire to Minworth Warwickshire around 1890. The Howat family moved from Cumnock, Ayrshire and settled in Glasgow around 1900.
