Heather
Spent the morning washing all the window at the back of the house. The sills and frames are white UPC or whatever they call it, so I had to get out the special cleaner as they needed a right good clean.

Spent the afternoon in the garden putting plants in. The three g'children came round after school and the youngest one who loves to help in the garden, got all mucky helping out.

I discovered that two boxes of plants I had bought were trailing plants, so we had to clear out two tubs of dead flower bulbs and plant the trailing plants in it. Then the g'daughter had a great time watering the garden and hosing down the patio. laugh.gif

After all that, we had a game of Swing Ball. smile.gif
Catherine
Cripes Heather wid ye sit doon laugh.gif ....ahm watchin Hunt for Red October here, love this film....ah no aw the lines that well ah feel ah should be innit laugh.gif
Isobel
You have had a really busy day Heather. I have just finish tiling my bathroom downstairs ,tomorrow I will grout and do a few tiles round the toilet that Jim is going to cut for me. Feeling quite proud of myself. By the way loved your pictures in the gallery. That was some trip.
Catherine time to get off your bum and get organized for the gang getting in.
Catherine
Cripes Isobel they've been in the door less than ten minutes, ahv made four sannies, cut up five apples, pourt three glasses a waater an pourt four bowls a yogi wae strawbewwies.......ahv shood them up the sterrs, they've brushed therr teeth an waashed their hauns an faces, somethin tells me it's the furst time ony part of thems seen a licka soap an toothpaste fur the last three days laugh.gif

Boys are groass....then they grow up..and the only thing that chinjes is the height laugh.gif
Heather
Sitting down now Catherine, but only after more work.

Husband is away to the pub to watch the Rangers match. I had to warn him not to look too pleased if St. Mirren score a goal against Rangers as I was too busy to take him to the Casualty.

After he went away I cleaned up the patio and hosed it down again. Then as our downstairs floors are all wooden one's, I washed every floor right from the utility room at the back of the house to the porch at the front of the house. The g'children were running right through the house playing hide & seek and the floors were mucky.mellow.gif

Tomorrow I will go into Town and treat myself as I still have 300 zylots to exchange. I think I will about 81 for them and as I bought them from Thomas Cook they won't charge me for the exchange. I also have 44 in M & S vouchers so I am going to be good to myself. smile.gif

Isobel thankyou for your nice remarks about the picture's. The Church's in Poland have the lovliest Altars I have ever seen, and they are old Church's.

Auchwitz left me cold, as I stood there knowing that thousands of people were murdered in that camp.
Birkenau was practically next door and I only stayed there a short time, then went out for a smoke. A strong drink would have gone down well.
Anne1

Today is just a day of going into the store and then a meeting, but can I tell you about yesterday and gloat again!! My daughter, her husband and two younger sons and I went to Calgary to see her oldest son, my #1 grandson graduate from SAIT (Southern Alberta College of Technology). He received his Chemical Engineering Diploma. We had a wonderful day, weather was glorious although we spent the whole afternoon indoors! Jeffrey looked great in his cap and gown and we literally took hundreds of photos. It was midnight when we got back home as we had dinner all together before we left Calgary and Jeffrey, he still has a course to complete.
