'My name is Katie Morag McColl and I live on the island of Struay.

0:00:310:00:36

'I suppose it's quite wee but it's ginormous to me

0:00:360:00:38

'and everyone looks out for me

0:00:380:00:41

'when I'm out and about having my adventures.'

0:00:410:00:44

# Katie Morag. #

0:00:440:00:46

Let's go and find some socks.

0:00:480:00:51

'It was Saturday and we were going shopping.

0:00:510:00:55

'But you can't go shopping without getting dressed and you can't

0:00:550:00:58

'get dressed without a nice pair of socks inside your wellies.'

0:00:580:01:01

'But finding an actual pair can sometimes be a challenge.'

0:01:050:01:10

Perfect.

0:01:100:01:11

'Of course, socks aren't the only thing you need to go shopping.

0:01:190:01:22

'You've got to have the money too. This was a very special occasion.

0:01:220:01:27

'Grandmother's Day was coming up

0:01:270:01:29

'and we wanted to get a present for Grannie Island.'

0:01:290:01:32

'Grandma Mainland was away on a shopping spree

0:01:330:01:35

'to her wee flat in Glasgow

0:01:350:01:37

'so we already sent her the biggest, floweriest card we could make

0:01:370:01:41

'but we wanted to get something nice for Grannie Island too.'

0:01:410:01:45

You take the dinosaur and I'll take the piggy bank.

0:01:450:01:48

So far, we had a grand total of 8p,

0:01:480:01:51

that was a lot of money back when I was Liam's age.

0:01:510:01:54

But these days it doesn't seem to buy much of anything at all.

0:01:540:01:58

8p and a feather. I really don't think we've got enough.

0:01:580:02:03

There must be some more somewhere.

0:02:030:02:05

-Are they coming?

-I've called them twice.

0:02:070:02:10

Well, they'll just have to wait their turn.

0:02:100:02:12

(Morning.)

0:02:130:02:15

Grannie Island says,

0:02:180:02:20

"If you try hard enough you'll always find what you need.

0:02:200:02:23

"And if you don't, you'll find something you didn't know

0:02:230:02:26

"you needed but you're really glad you found."

0:02:260:02:28

We found all kinds of things except money

0:02:300:02:33

until we remembered the old magic set.

0:02:330:02:35

Liam tried the disappearing coin trick and, guess what?

0:02:360:02:40

A whole pound appeared.

0:02:400:02:42

He wanted to try again but I said, "No," cos what if it all went wrong

0:02:420:02:46

and it disappeared again forever?

0:02:460:02:48

Fabby-do, Liam!

0:02:480:02:49

One minute she was fine... It's so unlike her. Dear, yes.

0:02:530:02:57

She wasn't her usual chatty self at all.

0:02:570:02:59

Grown-ups really do pick the most inconvenient times

0:02:590:03:03

to stand around chatting.

0:03:030:03:04

-..demanding attention.

-Really?

0:03:040:03:06

Well, I'm so glad she's all right...

0:03:070:03:11

Cheery-bye!

0:03:110:03:12

So we had £1.08, a feather and a dinosaur.

0:03:120:03:17

-Sir, madam.

-What can we get for all this?

0:03:200:03:25

Well, why don't you start choosing and I'll stop you

0:03:250:03:28

when the money's used up?

0:03:280:03:29

Choosing presents is a much harder job than grown-ups realise.

0:03:490:03:53

You have to make sure that you fit the present for the person.

0:03:530:03:56

You can't just buy things that you would like to have yourself.

0:03:560:04:00

You have to take the job seriously and never, ever rush it.

0:04:030:04:06

Shall we have some strawberries, Liam? Erm, 12 strawberries, please.

0:04:140:04:19

We'll have a bit of Nanny Goat's cheese as well.

0:04:250:04:29

Grannie Island always wraps her presents nicely.

0:04:560:04:59

She says that it's important to spend a wee bit of care and time on it.

0:04:590:05:03

Perfect.

0:05:060:05:08

-Bye.

-Bye.

-Bye.

0:05:130:05:15

I forgot the toy I was taking to play with.

0:05:150:05:19

Now, go straight to Grannie Island's, she's waiting for you.

0:05:190:05:22

And Liam forgot his too.

0:05:280:05:29

Honestly, we'd forget our heads if they weren't screwed on.

0:05:310:05:34

Hello. It's me. Yes, they're on their way.

0:05:360:05:41

Yes, right.

0:05:410:05:43

OK, Peter, will do. Bye.

0:05:430:05:45

That's it. Oh, dear. Come on, then.

0:05:450:05:49

SHE CLICKS HER TONGUE

0:05:490:05:51

Bye.

0:05:510:05:52

SHE CLEARS HER THROAT

0:05:590:06:01

-What?

-That'll be 5p, please.

0:06:010:06:06

You're kidding?

0:06:060:06:07

You don't happen to...

0:06:100:06:12

-I'll pay you back later.

-I trust you.

0:06:170:06:20

Oi!

0:06:290:06:31

Liam only has little legs so he gets tired easily.

0:06:360:06:40

That's why it's a good idea to have a little rest every now and again.

0:06:400:06:45

Because when he gets tired, he gets grumpy and, believe me,

0:06:470:06:51

you wouldn't want to see him grumpy.

0:06:510:06:53

Oh. Liam...

0:07:100:07:12

..you've eaten one of Grannie Island's snakes.

0:07:130:07:16

Well...

0:07:190:07:20

..we had three snakes to begin with and that was an odd number.

0:07:210:07:27

Now we have two snakes and that's an even number.

0:07:270:07:29

So, if we only have one snake, that's an odd number again.

0:07:310:07:35

So I'll just have to eat one myself.

0:07:370:07:39

Are you hungry?

0:07:580:08:00

Do you think another little something will help us get there quicker?

0:08:000:08:05

I think you're right.

0:08:050:08:06

# Run, run through the grass as long

0:08:220:08:25

# As fast as your legs can carry you

0:08:250:08:28

# Run, run till the cows come home

0:08:280:08:30

# So the prettiest girl gonna marry you. #

0:08:300:08:33

SHE HUMS THE TUNE

0:08:330:08:36

Do you want something to eat?

0:08:430:08:44

SHE HUMS

0:08:520:08:54

GRANNIE ISLAND LAUGHS

0:08:550:08:59

Come on.

0:08:590:09:01

-Oh, dear.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:09:020:09:05

KATIE SIGHS

0:09:090:09:10

You know, Liam?

0:09:280:09:29

I don't think Grannie Island will eat all this goat's cheese,

0:09:290:09:33

it'll give her indigestible - tummy trouble.

0:09:330:09:36

'And that's when I realised...'

0:10:140:10:17

Oh, Liam, we've eaten all Grannie Island's presents.

0:10:170:10:20

What are we going to give to her? '..just exactly what we had done.'

0:10:200:10:25

We've nothing to give her now except the snake.

0:10:250:10:30

We'll have to think of something.

0:10:300:10:33

'We'd spent all that time choosing presents that Grannie Island

0:10:330:10:36

'would like and then we ate them all up ourselves.

0:10:360:10:40

'What on earth could we give her now?'

0:10:400:10:43

'Eventually it came to us.

0:10:460:10:48

'There really was only one thing we could do.'

0:10:480:10:52

-Happy Grandmother's day!

-Welcome, away in. Oh, what a lovely surprise.

0:10:550:11:02

-We've brought you some presents, Grannie Island.

-Oh, how wonderful.

0:11:020:11:06

Let's see, now.

0:11:140:11:16

Oh.

0:11:160:11:19

What a smart tractor.

0:11:190:11:21

And what's this?

0:11:240:11:27

Oh, a lovely wee horse.

0:11:270:11:29

-And a lovely worm.

-A snake.

0:11:310:11:35

Oh, of course it's a snake.

0:11:350:11:38

I should have realised. And what else is in here?

0:11:380:11:42

A wee candle.

0:11:420:11:45

Oh, and a lovely flag. Oh, thank you.

0:11:450:11:48

Mmm.

0:11:500:11:52

Mmm!

0:11:540:11:55

Hmm!

0:11:550:11:58

Now, do you know what? That's enough for me.

0:11:580:12:03

I can't eat very much of those, you know.

0:12:030:12:06

Now, Liam, would you show me how that tractor goes?

0:12:070:12:11

Oh, look at that. That's a grand tractor.

0:12:130:12:17

Liam, do you think you would maybe look after it for me?

0:12:170:12:20

Because I've got my own old Grey Lady to look after.

0:12:200:12:24

Will you do that for me? Good boy.

0:12:240:12:28

And, Katie Morag, that's a grand wee horse and it reminds me

0:12:280:12:32

of something I've wanted to show you.

0:12:320:12:35

But before any of that, let's have tea.

0:12:350:12:38

-Porridgies, anyone?

-No, thanks.

-What?

0:12:380:12:42

After that long walk are you not very hungry?

0:12:420:12:44

I've got a bit of tummy trouble.

0:12:470:12:49

Grannie Island told me that she

0:12:540:12:55

wanted to get the shelter ready for a new animal coming to the croft.

0:12:550:13:00

I wasn't sure what animal she meant but I did the best job I could.

0:13:000:13:04

HORSE NEIGHS

0:13:040:13:06

And that was the moment I met Eriskay, Grannie Ireland's new horse.

0:13:070:13:11

And I knew we were going to be great friends for a long time to come.

0:13:130:13:18

I was so excited about Eriskay that night, I didn't feel tired at all.

0:13:240:13:29

I still felt terrible about eating Grannie Island's present

0:13:330:13:37

but Grannie Island didn't seem to mind only having one sweetie.

0:13:370:13:41

It was almost as if she knew what had happened.

0:13:410:13:44

That's the thing about grannies,

0:13:460:13:47

they really do know everything about everything.

0:13:470:13:50

It's Grandmother's Day and Katie Morag and Liam have yet to get a present to take round to Grannie Island. They choose some lovely things very carefully, but temptation gets in the way of all the best-laid plans!
