Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 59 years old and live in a small village near Falkirk, Scotland. In fact it is so small that it comprises one street, 50 houses and a small primary school. The beauty of the place is that at the back of my house is a village park which is protected as a site of natural beauty and also has a part that even the villagers cannot enter without permission as it contains some rare flowers.

Hi, my name is Clive McGrory or MAC to my friends. I am 59 years old and live in a small village near Falkirk, Scotland. In fact it is so small that it comprises one street, 50 houses and a small primary school. The beauty of the place is that at the back of my house is a village park which is protected as a site of natural beauty and also has a part that even the villagers cannot enter without permission as it contains some rare flowers. My main interests are cooking, reading and the internet although during the summer months cricket is a priority and I will be glued to the TV for a lot of the time. I live with my wife, Mary, and daughter, Patricia, and my mother, Beryl. My mother joined us up here 7 years ago as she found she could no longer take care of herself properly. Since she came she has got back to the Mum I knew as a child and she is once more enjoying herself, (she is 84 this year). I am disabled and so is my daughter. I have multiple disabilities which mean that I require a wheelchair to travel distance but I am fortunate in that I can still get about the house with the aid of a delta walker,and am increasing my mobility range slowly through managd exercise. I do require some assistance at night and my daughter has drawn the short straw as my wife also has a full time job. Activity wise I generally do the housework and cook for my mother and the garden is also my responsibility. I am able to garden with the aid of a modified shopping trolley which enables me to sit whilst using full size tools. I attend a local church and part of that is baking for the after service get together. There is also a lunch club which meets every Tuesday and I sometimes do the main cooking for that also, although we do have a lady who heats everything up or cooks herself and generally everyone pitches in to serve up and wash the dishes afterwards. I generally have a good quality of life and I like to keep a smile going whenever I can. I am an eternal optimist and know that even when things are not going well there is always hope around the corner and that a better and brighter future awaits us all.

I AM THINKING MUM COULD NOT BE IN A BETTER PLACE. SURE UNDERSTAND HER NOT WANTING TO GO, BUT SO PLEASED THAT TRISH TOOK CONTROL OF THE SITUATION.

LOOK AFTER YOURSELF MAC AND REST UP UNTIL YOU ARE FEELING BETTER. I KNOW HOW WORRIED YOU MUST BE, BUT MUM IS IN GOOD HANDS NOW.

LOVE WISPY

The recipe for Inari Sushi is very simple Mac but finding the tofu pockets (Inarizushi-no-moto) can be difficult here. We usually have to find an oriental grocery store. Some places on the internet have it but are charging an exorbitant price.

Here's the basic recipe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGIs9QawTf

We usually add a can of chicken breast pulled apart finely and cooked mixed veg.
