My granddaughters are teenagers who live on a different island to me. Although we are a close family and they used often to come and stay with me, as they have grown older, their friends have become more important and I felt that we were growing apart. I knew that once they were at university the gap would widen. While at Calder & Lawson I picked up a booklet on a cruise on the Mekong River. The first thing I noticed was that the ship was called La Marguerite – my mother’s name. Good start.
