“During his voyage, the  Prince's boat was caught in a storm, and he was forced to land on Benbecula. Despite mainly being 
Presbyterian, Flora and the population of Benbecula were sympathetic to the Jacobite cause, and the Prince and his companions received hospitable treatment. Nevertheless, the Prince was a fugitive with a price on his head  and his companions therefore sought out Flora. She disguised him as an Irish spinning maid, Betty Burke, and by this means smuggled him off the island, on 27 June, and took him "over the sea to Skye".

4.     During the 12 days of Christmas, how many ‘legs’ did “my true-love give to me”?

Answer = 9028

Day 1 = 2 legs

Day 2 = (2 x 2 legs) + 2 = 6 legs

Day 3 = (3 x 2 legs) + 4 + 2 = 12 legs

Day 4 = (4 x 2 legs) + 6 + 4 + 2 = 20 legs

Day 5 = 0 legs + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 20 legs

Day 6 = (6 x 2 legs) + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 32 legs

Day 7 = (7 x 2 legs) 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 46 legs

Day 8 = (8 x 2 legs on the milkmaid) + (8 x 3 legs on the stool) + (8 x 4 legs on the cow)

+ 14 + 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 118 legs

Day 9 = (9 x 2) + 72 + 14 + 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 136 legs

Day 10 = (10 x 2) + 18 + 72 + 14 + 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 156 legs

Day 11 = (11 x 2) + 20 + 18 + 72 + 14 + 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 178 legs

Day 12 = (12 x 2) + 22 + 20 + 18 + 72 + 14 + 12 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 202 legs

= (2x12)+(6x11)+(12x10 )+(20 x9)+(20 x 8 )+(32x7)+(46x6)+(118x5)+(136x4)+(156x3)+(178x2) + 202 = 9028

Day 8 = (8 x 2 legs on the milkmaid) + (8 x 3 legs on the stool) + (8 x 4 legs on the cow)

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
