Finally home from a loooonnggg 5 days in intensive care, missed this little guy so much I don't even know where to begin! So glad to get mummy cuddles again and seeing his wee smiling face has made a big difference 💙 thanks again to everyone for messages, cards and visiting me! Also a big thank you to my little man for my wee teddy #alexthomasmcgrath#missedmyboy#hospital#ICU#forthvalleyroyalhospital

After what felt like a lifetime, we finally got to bring our precious bundle home from hospital today. I can’t praise FVRH staff enough for all they have done for us, the care we received was impeccable. Nevertheless, when we got the good news that we could take Maria home, it was like winning the lottery. I couldn’t wait to get both my babies together in our home. Time to start our new adventure together properly 💕💙👨👩👧👦 #Familyof4
Lovely #larbertloch is right on our doorstep here in #larbert . It's in the grounds of #forthvalleyroyalhospital and includes this crannog style viewing platform from where you can take small people like this to get close to the baby wild fowl without causing any disruption. (Remember not to feed them though. That's very important!!) The grounds have extensive forestry walks suitable for lots of abilities. The loch was used by locals for #curling matches - back in the day when winters were cold enough for the loch to freeze over entirely.
Looking across the lochan in Larbert to Maggie's Forth Valley, designed by Garbers & James and officially opened by Lord Jack McConnell on 15th March 2017 thanks to Walk the Walk, who funded the entire build! This is the first time since the opening I've actually remembered to take my camera when visiting! I'm one of many Maggie's volunteers who help raise vital funds and offer their time to support people with cancer and their family and friends.

The RSA Annual Exhibition opens this evening and I'm reminiscing.
In May 2015 my new work from The Sim Project was exhibited there following new work I'd made exploring the surreal robotic mannequins used globally for medical teaching. This work produced with funding from the RSA's Morton Award 2014 for Lens Based Art. It was an honor and a privilege to win this award and receive support from the RSA team. I'll be sharing more of this ongoing project over the next few days.
I'm looking forward to seeing Gair Dunlop's Morton Award 2015 project this evening too.
