Welcome back glasgow lass,bet ye had a great time in Miami.
Well i was gonnae go intae toon fer a wee walk aboot since the Grand Prix is here on the week-end,whilst waiting fer the bus the dark clouds moved in so i thought better of bein oot in the rain in town and jumped on another bus and went to a local electronics store and bought maself a new cordless Logitech keyboard and mouse.I need it as it's gettin to hard for me to sit in ma chair for long amounts of time,so noo i'll just hook it up and sit in ma recliner.
Noo aww i need is a mini fridge and a microwave oven beside me and i'm aww set...lol.

While i was waiting for the bus home i had a nice wee surprise,the "Canadian Snowbirds" flew overhead in a 2 - 1- 3 formation,with the last 3 planes leaving a vapor trail behind them,they must be stationed at the St-Hubert Airport which is about 12km from me.

Today Ive been sitting out the front yard beside my wee water fountain enjoying the trickle of the water on this lovely Autumn day.My daughter is coming over for Dinner & to stay the night,we are also expecting our son to visit tomorow so we can all go have fish n chips by the ocean apparently Neil doesn't want tae dae a BBQ nor go to a restraunt he said we oughta have fish n chips by the seaside like we dae in Scotland laugh.gif
penny dainty
Morning Linda, hope you enjoy your fish and chips.Oh by the way , it's winter now or so I'm told as of the first of June laugh.gif you wouldnt think it though , still warm during the day.
Well had a fairly quiet weekend so far , got all my housework done Thursday , gardening on Friday, went to the caravan and camping show Saturday and shopping today.Public holiday tomorrow, yay!
Bought at least 4 new caravans yesterday wink.gif oh there are some beauties nowadays , still our van, although somewhat modest in comparison is still one of the best layouts and will do us for a while yet.
RonD
Mornin' ladies, ma wife goat a lovely phone call fae her pal in Wollengong!
stratson
Nice to get phone calls from distant friends, curious to know where in Wollongong, I have family (nieces and nephews) in Corrimal, Bellambi and Fig Tree.
Hope your having a nice birthday, hope you got some nice pressies! biggrin.gif
Today am takin' it easy as worked hard at allotment yesterday, givin' the auld bones a rest.Gonna try this resizing photos to enable me to post. smile.gif
Isobel
Sitting relaxing in ma wee garden
lindamac
biggrin.gif Despite the fact that it was raining this afternoon & was a wee tate caulder than usual[well it is winter and awe yoan witt cin ye expect?] we still went to the beach when the rain eased off & took some video footage to put onto my mammys wee birthday present , we got her a Digital photoframe that holds music slideshows & video/dvd coverage so we are getting it all organised with new & old dvd footage as well as snaps & music for her so she can just press the remote & be sitting by my side at the ocean front when she misses me, which is both mum & mines favourite place in the whole world to hang out together.

I got my son to go write Happy Birthday mum for me in the sand so we can use it as the opening shot on her frame.we still got our fish n chips but under cover at this wee chippy on the spit,nothing elaborate just tables & cafe chairs under cover.I figured it would be more natuaral to show mum & family even the rainy damp days can be fun in Aussie.The erosion of the beach was incredible such a drop wow it had a 2 metre drop off thats how much erosion was done via the bad weather down at the coast it is actualy very sad to see it like that sad.gif We made the most of a not so great weather day & had some fun & chats to the family via video recording anyways.

Your dress shall be perfect Isobel,may I ask what colour it is? I love a wedding so please do post pictures after the wedding will you please Isobel? I know Iam not the only one who loves a wedding.

Was talking to a neighbour who informed me there's a bus leeaves Pollok Monday, Wednesday and Friday to Oban,you can use your bus pass, the same bus returns in the evening. Am going to have a go at that first free day. Love sitting watching the fishing boats at the harbour. biggrin.gif

Today am off to finish cutting my hedge, did the left side yesterday,takes a lot out of me now. Am being given a hedge trimmer which you put on charge from a fellow plotter, she works and gets to her plot Sundays. From here on it should be a breeze to do.
CAT
Hi all. Off out bowling tonight with some work mates. Any excuse for a small libation. dry.gif
Stratson the bus to Oban sounds great. My mum stays in pollok and she usualy goes out with my aunt on a wednesday so I think this is right up her street. She might even meet some new friends from the area. Do you know who runs the service or where it leaves from?
Hope ye enjoyed Edinburgh Betty I've not been there for years.
Heather was at Carfin last year it's a busy ole place. They sure have done a lot of work.

Rond, those lawnmowers are fab, mind ye it's the trimmin' that finishes it off. My daughter's neighbour in previous house did like you, think he cut the whole avenue.
I used to watch him as the land had a lot of trees, pretty awkward for him.
The grassy patch I had in my allotment I got a patio made,, have the garden furniture there now plus the B.B.Q. Hope to get plenty use of my parasol this year.
