You have a good one Joyce. I know how hard night shift can be I did it years ago when my kids were wee and survived on about 4-5 hours sleep a day. Couldn't do it now though.
I'm stuck in the office all day and I fell a wee bit queezy I hope it comes to nothing as I go on holiday on Friday. Hubby went to bed at 7pm last night and didn't get up till this morning so maybe its a wee 24 hour thing. unsure.gif

I also took packets of potato scones and chocolate caramel digestive biscuits. laugh.gif

Today is pretty full. I will be in the park for the highland Games, helping the new director of vendors set up their booths in where WE want them.to be. I had done this for the last two years . so I know all their tricks biggrin.gif then I have to set up a booth for MDW and a friend of hers as they are selling some crafty things. Tomorrow we will finsh up the vendors for late comers.then I will be "rover" on a 'gator' and havea walkie talkie to "put out fires" as things occur on the day, whether it repairing a fence or getting ice for the beer tent etc. It s makes for a full day, but I love seeing everyone enjoying themselves.

Well came in from work just after 7am, had a joiner coming who was here till almost 2pm, did some housework and ironing while he was here to try and catch up a bit...was shattered by the time he left!!!
Never mind another bit of work complete...I sometimes wonder IF this flat will ever be finished.
My son went on a cruise on Tue so gives me a week to get things back in order as much as I can always easier when no ones around isnt it?
I will just have to do an hour a day then I have the full weekend, things are taking shape but rather slowly rolleyes.gif

Enjoy your weekend linda x
Heather
Linda I don't like these goodbye parties. They can be very upsetting to emotional people like me.

When I was coming home from America I said to my g'son. " I hate these goodbye's ".

After we got through Customs and waved the final goodbye to my sister, I saw my g'son looking at me but I just stared ahead. A few minutes later he looked again and the tears were flowing down my face. He gave me a hug and said, " your right gran, your not very good at these goodbye's. sad.gif
penny dainty
OOH I feel ,for you Heather, I am exactly the same , I hate goodbyes with a passion, I get so upset. sad.gif

Well done Joyce on saturdays shopping.Your doing well in the furnishing dept.
I didn't get to E.K. on Saturday. Ended up at Mandors looking for fabric. Got a good soaking with it.
Was in the Savoy Centre and was looking at a unit with some beautiful coffee tables and lamps , all in a black theme. Was very attractive. One in particular £375.......(only looking) No plans to make any changes)

Have got my bedroom window done and inner curtaining on rail.(used to get all my windows done in an afternoon, how times changes your habits.) Going to shower as I feel very warm.

Will attempt to put the ironing table up. The ironing fairly mounts up. Wish I could twitch my nose and it miraculously would be completed. laugh.gif
