Morning all. I have that problem and its awful. I was told by my doctor to take gravol as its not addictive. So maybe once or twice a week I do that . You need a good nights sleep every three nights. So I am told.
Not a very nice day here, rained most of the night and today its warm and showers expected best part of the day.Good for the garden ,but ma wee pal is having her big yearly BBQ and we were all looking forward to a nice afternoon by the pool. Looks like it will have to be inside. Thank god for basements

We signed our contract of sale for our new home on friday afternoon plus We went to see our friends up at their farm sunday [ yesterday] we wanted to catch up with yvonne & waynes daughter whom has come down from Rockhampton[roxanne is my daughters best friend from childhood],we havent saw her in 5yrs as she has been away at university. Since Roxanne is staying to help look out for her grandma for a wee while whom is 83 & tiring,they live in stanthorpe the place of the apples which is next to vonnie & waynes farm in between warwick & Stanthorpe.

Since Vonnies ferm is in between stanthorpe & Warwick , we had a fair drive up of 2&3 quarter hours each way.We saw another baby alpaca [thats her got 6 now]which was as cute as a button our dog ashy almost copped a kick from the alpacas mammy cause he got to near tae her baby hehehe never saw ashy run away so fast in eez puff hehehe :lol:they have mostly cattle now but they are expanding each time we get up there we find theres plenty more coos n Bulls.after a nice wee walkaboot we had a lovely alfresco luncheon of chicken salad etc& just basked in the sunshine enjoying the amazing saroundings of farmland bush & mountain ranges even better than usual as the day was gorgeous weather like spring yet we are still in winter.

Neil & Wayne went off around the property shooting stuff [yeah ah know bad int it but boys will be boys ahm afraid]Vonnie got the whip out tae show us a few moves[settle doon fellas it isney like that]hehehe as she whipped cracked away Neil near copped a nose skinning aff Vonnie cause she was too close tae him hehehe now he was a sight tae behold he froze furra second then ran aroon efter vonnie tae confiscate that bliddy whip hehehe wish I had thought tae film them on the video hehehe we had a hilarious day.

Turns out that roxanne is here to become a police woman after deciding she no longer wants to be a teacher she was looking great & wonderfull to see her & Heather reconnect so she will be down to see Heather in a few weeks to stay for a wee holiday.Had Mr Mrs Dainty here saturday night for stew n Mash wi vegies we all enjoyed ourselves as well as us having a wee giggle oer a couple of red wines which ahve never realy liked before but I found a fruity red tae try & liked it. laugh.gifa great wee weekend had by all I say.
Isobel
Sounds like a great time was had by all. My weekend turned out better than expected . Alan and Pat had the BBQ but we were all inside as it poured rain.We all just laughed and said a real Glasgow day, what could be better None of us remember weather like that in July.
Our drive home was awful. Oh well it was worth it .Good food and great friends. thats what its all about eh?
Today is a much better day looks like it could be very nice the rain got rid of the humidity.
Going to the print shop to get the programs for the church printed them Kathryn My sister and I are going to put them all together this afternoon. Hopefully in the garden.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Heather
It was a lovely morning here, so about 11am my husband and I got a train into town then a coach down to Ayr, we just got back home about 8-30pm.

Ayr was very busy and choc-a-bloc with cars parked along the prom on both sides of the road as far as the eye could see.

The beach was busy with plenty of children having a good time in the water.
Across from the beach there is a really good play park for the children, swings, chute's, climbing frames. There were so many I can't remember them all and they were free. Along from that was a park where the children could play football, and run about to their hearts content. These place's were all busy especially with people having picnics as there are plenty cafe's where you could buy a selection of food for eating out.

We played a game of Putting and my husband won 10-4, he even got a hole in one. tongue.gif
penny dainty
A day at the seaside Heather, sounds lovely .I guess Ayr must still get its share of the Glasgow punters during the Fair.
I went to work as Usual , then had coffee with a colleague whos rat of a husband has just told her he is leaving her for a younger model, poor soul is so upset.
For a woman to do this to another woman is dispicable, but when the woman is your own best friend !!!!!! Well I say Karma will have a say in both their lives.

biggrin.gif It is a tate early by sounds of things but Iam actualy gonna pack my Glesga cases today as I think it will get me started oan packing up this hoose afterwards,cannae believe it is like 30 days untill we leave OMG anyhoo I figured dain the pack up fur holidays was a wiser move tae motivate me onward tae getting awe the rest done hehehehe rolleyes.gif

My heart goes oot tae yer pal as I was sharing with ye thats what happened to my pals 3yrs ago Penny it was very tragic my girlfriend Rose had a dreadful time afterwards almost broke into a nervous breakdown so she did & she got terrible depression tae so watch oot for yer wee workmate she will need some sorta support hen.God Bless her wee heart that must be the worst sort of break up there can be so traumatic poor darls she is.I like you feel Karma will get it's way with him one day he will have to answer to God about why he didn't Honour 7 cherish his beloved wife untill death did they part & I believe theres only a few good reasons that God would allow for splits but certainly not running away with yer best pal huh thats sick!

Well Penny, so much for the loving husband and the best friend. They have probably been having the affair for a while, right under her nose. Shame on them both.

With a friend like that, who needs enemies.

Elma
I haven't even thought about what I am going to take let alone actually packing, but......I'm not moving house either! It is a thought about the weight you can take now-a-days, I'm going to be wearing layers and layers of the heavy clothes so if you see someone rolling around in Glasgow Airport, that'll be me laugh.gif so help me up onto my feet again, thank you!!!
I need help anyway, how warm/cold is it now in Glasgow in September?
Heather
Hey Elma you better be careful in how many clothes you wear. I read in the newspapers last week that some Airports are weighing the travellers as well as their luggage. wink.gif wink.gif
Elma
Oh no ohmy.gif sad.gif

Yesterday, I and the lovley man in my life, took the train into Glasgow then the bus up to the Kelvin/museum.....A little bit of culture! I had'nt been for years and it was worth paying a visit. I particuly love the paintings and the sculptures. One in particular is the man with his little daughter sitting on his knee, they were so sad looking, I could have cried for them. If any of you haven't been for a long time it is well worth a visit. Glasgow has so much history, it is worth taking time to enjoy it.
Heather
Mamie, that is where my husband suggested we go yesterday, but I wanted to go to the seaside.

We have not been to the Art Gallery for years either.
Anne1

Well it rained best part of the night here. Lots of thunder and lightening, Heard this morning that this has been the most rainfall every recorded here.What is going on???? Quite nice this morning , heading out to meet my friends for lunch later. Lazy day for me. Not getting many days like that right now. Busy time ,wedding fast approaching.
Heather
Well right now I am sitting here in fits laughing.

Yesterday was the anniversary of the Battle of Falkirk 22/7/1298. Edward 1st of England against William Wallace, and Edward won the day.

So today I am reading in the newspapers that the Edinburgh Dungeon, a top tourist spot in Edinburgh, jokingly banned the English for the day and told them they would only be allowed in if they signed an oath of allegiance to Scotland and William Wallace.
Some nutcase made a complaint the Police as they considered the ban racist. The Dungeon boss said it was a storm in a teacup.laugh.gif laugh.gif
glasgow lass
That is funny Heather laugh.gif

Haud oan till ah put ma serious face oan.....

Linda, if the luggage is proving to be a serious problem, it might be worth booking extra weight in advance...most airlines let you do it and it'll be at a much cheaper rate per kilo than the rate you'll be charged at the airport.... biggrin.gif
Heather
Oh Linda, I'm having a good laugh at you thinking I was serious. laugh.gif

That's as funny as the person who complained about signing the allegiance to Scotland and William Wallace. laugh.gif

As for the luggage situation we met loads of people coming back from our hols that had problems with weight on previous trips . We were a bit worried but as it turns out ours was just within our limit but there were others on our flight who had almost twice what we had and never had a problem.

Well lunch has arrived so I think I'll pop oot tae the sunshine and eat al fresco cool.gif
mamie
