Hiya everyone biggrin.gif My weekends gonnae be a bitty quieter than last weekend,we are just doing dvds tonight & maybe dinner & movie tomorow night.Last weekend we went to our friends farm to stay & we took in all the winerys in the district[Stanthorpe] taste testing & buying thge ones we liked,I ended up buying a lovely blended red wine, a fortyfyed wine called moonshine madness that tastes like black syrupy camp coffee of all things,a vintage port & some liqueurs too,one that was particularly appealing believe it or not , was a Lavender liqueur with gold leaf flakes floating around in it,it was in a bottle shaped like a Dolphin so was more like a snow storm thingy rether than an alchoholic beverage hehehe the other liqueurs I got were simular but whisky& caramel & a brandy based type of creamy liqueur such as yer Baileys very very delicious this stuff.I think I wish I was back at Stanthorpe this weekend too laugh.gif Hiccic!

Right Linda , comin over to pick up all those liqures you bought , well someone has to save you from yourself laugh.gif
stratson
Hope your shoulder is better Joyce. It sounds like heavy work you do. Now that son is home perhaps you should take advantage and rest when your off. Difficult I know, easier said than done!

Linda, you are one high flier, your description of your alcoholic bevarages is enough to put one back on the drink, Good idea taking it easy this weekend. laugh.gif

Today must sound very mundane. I'm off tae howk oot ma tatties. rolleyes.gif

We're gaun tae the Fegrus Highland games, the biggest in Ontario. Ma big bruvver is meetin' us there as he lives only 40 minutes away and we are an hoor an' a hauf. They're talkin' aboot thunder boomers though. Poor games goat flooded oot last year, their gate is gaunnae be doon. It is so sad, wi' events like this, the committee and the volunteers work hard a' year tae put it oan an' then tae be mercy o' the weather. Last night wiz nice. Our widowed next door neighbour had her 75th birthday party at her daughter's hoose and the whole extended family wiz there. It made us feel special tae, since we were only unrelated (tae them smile.gif )couple there.

You are right Penny. No more than you would yell at a sick child. Even if the dog was doing something bad such as digging holes in the garden or knawing at the furniture. They don't understand why they are being yelled at or punished after the fact. You have catch a dog in the act of doing something naughty then you can let them know that is wrong.
stratson
P.D, hpe nothing seriously wrong with Molly, what did vet have to say? Trust not serious. Woof Woof Molly. smile.gif

Am very tired today and have been a lot recently, will follow this by taking it easy, go for a walk then home. Prepare light dinner for evening. That's about it for me today.

Jings Annewan, your quickly becoming an accident looking for a place to happen. rolleyes.gif

Your no responsible for yourself when yer oot. wink.gif

Joyce, I've had a runny nose since I came home from America to all this rainy weather.

I'm having one of my sleepless nights. I went to bed at 10-30pm and could not get to sleep and it's now nearly 3am in the morning. It's not as if I sleep during the day. I am worn out from lack of sleep as I've hardly slept the last three nights.
27stowst
There's nothing worse Heather. Everything always looks or seems worse in the middle of the night. Have ye tried a wee hot toddy?? Or even hot milk? (Ah couldnae take that masel!! tongue.gif ) I've always been a night owl, even when ah worked full time! Hope ye get tae sleep soon. wub.gif
Heather
Stowst, I've tried every remedy in the book. I have bought every sleeping pill on the market. The last one's I bought were from Boots and the girl assured me they were really good. I was to take just one at night shortly before going to bed. It did nothing for me, so I tried taking two and did not even get a yawn out of them. sad.gif
penny dainty
Red wine Heather and plenty of it , come see me in the pub , i'll sort ye oot biggrin.gif .I swear by it when I cant sleep blink.gif

Are you near Cherryhill? My daughter lives there?

Went shopping to the ASDA today, all the jewellery(gold and diamonds) watches was half the marked price. Got a few Christmas presents in advance.

Also got a stock of light bulbs, after coming Tuesday will not be on sale, just the new eco ones, I don't like them. The fire bulbs, spotlights, screw in ones etc. Almost finished,
New law retailers will be fined 2,000 if they sell them after the ban.>>>Official. smile.gif
