You may remember that we told you in our article in October about the writing project on the same Family Legends theme. You can refresh your memory on that here. The closing date is 31 January for the writing competition, but some stories have already been uploaded to The Scottish Booktrust website and you can read about Grannies, Mussels, Snotters and Uncle Jackie there. All of our families have stories like this. We just have to commit them to some sort of record.
