Doing the usual Sunday things. Stayed up this morning after porridge and put the roast in the oven, by 9a.m. will be cooked so back to bed and watch Andrew Marr on B.B.C.1 smile.gif

Glad you had a nice break P.D. biggrin.gif
I would love to do what you just described Stratson, sounds good to me.

I woke before 8 made my coffee, come into my wee computer room, and have been going through the GG.

Will go and have a shower in a wee while once I'm wide awake - I've never been someone who can jump out of bed straight into a shower, need my morning fix first LOL.

Then after the shower, dressed, and over to my aunties with her shopping which I normally get on a Sunday at M & S, but went instead yesterday to Iceland to see if they had some things a wee bit different from the usual for her, as she eats like a bird. One of the carers sends me a text now telling me what she needs, saves me going over with too much food.

So I'll take that over around 11 or 12. The only good thing about the world my aunty is living in is that she has no day to day worries or stresses, as she is on a different plain to the rest of us, and I do all the other stuff.

Not sure what I'll do when I come back yet.


I just noticed too that you got the plaster off - my goodness after all this time, I bet that bath felt great.

You will slowly be on the mend and out and about again I'm sure. Glad you got that off. I've never had a plaster cast on, my aunty did a couple of years back when she fell on black ice, she damaged her wrist, but I remember the look on her wee face when they started to take it off LOL.
Stratson, I don't think there would be enough space in Stuarty's house for the Dashing White Sergeant, Canadian Barn Dance etc. laugh.gif

I'm trying to walk without the crutches, but oh dear it's sore. Still can't get a shoe on.

Penny was that you in hiding from your children, leaving them to get on with things themselves, quite right. smile.gif

So I'm just gonnae cosole myself with a packet of mintola. (Sorry just read the lable they are now called after eights) biggrin.gif
I almost passed out with fright this morning.

It was about 8-30 in the morning and i'm in the kitchen making my porridge when my eye caught someone at the window. I looked round and there was this stranger in the back garden peering in at me. I got the fright of my life and the man knew it and he's signing out with his hands and mouthing, sorry, sorry, it was the Window Cleaner.

He has this new fangled way of washing the windows. It's like a jet spray and when he comes to our Avenue he always fills the water tank from the water tap in our back garden which is just below the kitchen window. He did ask when he got this jet spray if we minded, which we didn't as we are not on any meter for the water and the man has his job to do to earn his living.

My husband put the water tap in years ago. One of the benefits of being married to a Plumber.

I stood there with my heart racing and signing out to the guy, it's ok, it's ok.
That fright wakened me up real quick. unsure.gif

Hope you've recovered Heather. Our window cleaner has the same thing he said it's to do with health and safety and insurance and window cleaners are no longer supposed to use ladders. rolleyes.gif

Well I'm in the office just now but awaiting a call from my daughter as she's due her wee girl on Monday and now every niggle or anything out of the ordinary and she thinks she's in labour laugh.gif
So thats me on maternity watch no cyber pub for me this weekend.
Heather is the window cleaner alright laugh.gif

CAT hope you dont have a long wait laugh.gif
Annne & Cat, the Window Cleaner was at the door tonight for his money and the two of us just burst out laughing. He said he got a fright when he saw the look on my face. He knew he had frightened me. I think the poor guy must have thought I was going to collapse.

Maybe he also got a fright seeing me standing there making the porridge, my hair standing on end, the dressing gown on and half asleep. laugh.gif

I don't get washed and dressed until after I have my breakfast.

In future I won't open the blinds until I'm decently dressed.

Cat, you'll be on nettles every time the phone rings. Keep you coat and bag at the ready.
Today we are off to a wee tea party for the 88th birthday of my favourite customer. I'm that chuffed that we were invited. biggrin.gif

We are feeling very pleased for our g'son today.

Last year he got an Audition for a part in a film Peter McMullan was making. Unfortunately the filming was starting just before we went to America, but he still got a small part in it.
The film is called: Neds. rolleyes.gif

A few days ago he got an email to go for an Audition for a part in a Musical that will be on in the Ramshorn Theatre in January.
After the Audition he was told he had the Lead part.
The story is set in the future and sounds like a comedy.

Apparently it was the group Peter McMullan is with that passed on his email address. So they must have been plesed with him.

He's going to be a busy lad as he is also in the Musical his College is putting on in December.
Just the usual kind of day for me. Footered aboot the hoose. Cooked dinner. Did some surfing the net. Viewed the new built houses at Rouskey in Co Tyrone They are detached, 12 in all have been built , each a little different. So near my cousin Mary in Gortin.>>>> Ah well, if my lottery comes up, who knows? rolleyes.gif

Heather, am so excited too for your grandson, no wonder your chuft, a great opportunity for your budding star,

stuarty, I wish you stayed in Scotland as I would love to see you more often, it was great having my other lassie home. Hope to see you before you return to Surrey.
Enjoy Saturday with the rest of the G.G. family. smile.gif
Stratson, we have already told him, that if he becomes a rich and famous Actor, then he better remember all those who were good to him when he was young.

He was laughing when I said I would sell stories to the Media about all the things he got up to when he was young. laugh.gif

He has wanted to be an Actor for as long as I can remember. Not an easy profession to get in to, but it's a Drama & Music Course he is doing at College.
