This came from a friend’s blog and became an interesting topic of discussion at my Mum’s New Years’ Eve party, especially amongst the McIntyre’s!
Here’s the gist:
Our own interpretation included the following: they are 8, not 5, i.e. twice as mean, they are also Weegies (the Children are from Glasgow), specifically Barmulloch, scary, you are allowed to be as mad as you like (Aunt Katherine was particularly keen on this rule), children CAN be used as weapons (Neil McIntyre needed this comfort).
Aunt Katherine : 10+ kids
Neil McIntyre : 7 kids
Euan McIntyre : 8 kids
I think we shoujld all be afraid of Aunt Katherine, but we knew that, right?
