I have three g'children, 18/11/8 yrs of age all sitting here playing, Wii, DS, IPod Touch & goodness knows what else and so intent in what they are doing. They are so quiet it's not real. rolleyes.gif

Give me a good game of Ludo and Snakes & Ladders, at least our parents knew we were there with all the noise me made. laugh.gif

Dear Heather

Tomorrow (Boxing Day ) i will be 80. You know ? that last post was so true for me. in MY YOUNGER DAYS Christmas was not celebrated at all. .Even my father had to go to work ,Just as i did right up until around the 1960's.
Now ,we are made to feel ashamed if we do not spend a fortune on presents (BAH HUMBUG ) just joking ,Im not rellay like that,i am quite cheerful as a matter of fact.
I looked around atthe presents i bought for my family and there is not much change from a thousand pounds .
Nothing is grudged of course ,but when i look back i wonder when and how the advertisers began to make us feel guilty by not going on a spending spree.
But, my post to you is this. This is the very first Christmas i have beeb on my own,and it is not very nice..I had 49 wonderful Christmasses with my beloved Jean.
Thank god for my GG friends .
It is now 5.30 pm and my son is cocming for me at 6.00 pm for a little party.

My son in law and my daughtert and myself had a very bitter falling out in Juy and they left home. taking every stick of furnuture and my darling grand daughter.aged 15.

I havent seen them for 6 months now and despite arranging birthday presents and christmas preents for them . they sent them all back to me.

I THINK I WILL GET DRUNK TONIGHT.
Happy Christmas Heather
love tommy
By the way ,my son is 50 and my daughter is 43

Dont bother with my moaning . i feel better already
RonD
Tommy, by the time I post this you will have gone to your wee party. I think you had a heck of an idea by suggesting you get a wee bit fu'. It'll help clear the pipes biggrin.gif . Wishing a very happy birthday tomorrow and all the best in the new year.
Heather
Tommy my heart goes out to you. It's only the people we care about that can hurt us, others can only annoy us.
God Bless and take care.

The family are away home and my husband is having a wee rest, he ate too much food or maybe he had too much wine, he is not a wine person, not like me. laugh.gif

I'm listening to a few old Record as my husband bought me a new HiFi.
It's a neat wee player with mini size Speakers.
It plays all the old records of which I have plenty of. It also plays CDs and has an MP3 connection and a Radio. Plus a connection to the PC.
It also Records, but I don't have a clue what or worked out how!!!

I still have a lot of the old Single's & Albums and my g'daughters thought I was going mad when I put on Elvis' 40 Greatest Hits and started teaching them to jive. laugh.gif
Anne1
Tommy there is always tomorrow,, so enjoy tonight and have a wee bevy with the family that you have with you, God bless and A Happy Birthday for tomorrow pal as Heather says it only the ones who love us can cause heartbreak, so be strong
RonD
Today, we are off to an art supply store for new brushes and paints that my dear Mrs. Ron D wants. I hope to get an oil change for the van, then settle down to catalogueing my family tree stuff, that has been in disarray all Autumn.....it's a full life biggrin.gif
stratson

Elma
I've had a relaxing day today too, I came home this morning after being at my son-in-law's house since Christmas Eve. It is only 5 minutes away from me but it feels good to stay with all the family, we all gather there for the whole time. Had a wonderful Christmas, ate and ate and drank, played Cranium in the evening after dinner. Nice to be home again today though unsure.gif smile.gif
stratson
Just going to bath and shower, totally pamper myself,,,,,,,think you call it me time! Always busy doing other stuff for family..

Just a light meal tonight.

Will flit between watching T.V. and G.G. TALK to my kin in Ireland. It's a Wonderful Life. biggrin.gif
angel

joycewilson
Morning all....oh its cold....not long in from work, Im gonna catch up on my sites and message boards then curl up and get a good sleep..Have a good day all wink.gif
stratson
Just you get all tucked in Joyce, it is even colder today. Look after yourself.
Happy New Year.
Today am gonna keep as warm as I can by staying home again, this weather does not entice me to go out.. Looking forward to all this ice and freezing conditions passing, then getting back to normal. sad.gif
Melody
Me too Stratson, it feels bitterly cold this morning. I always think that this week feels a bit out of time and space somehow, lack of routine I suppose. Either that or it's always just magical. smile.gif Keep cosy whatever you do pal. wub.gif

I'm Heading back home to Montreal sad.gif sad.gif
Heather
I did all my shopping today. The butcher and the groceries. When I came home I had my dinner.

After dinner, I made sultana and maderia cakes.

Then I cleaned all the cupboards in the kitchen that were not done last week. Now I just have the floor to wash which I will do tomorrow, I'm too tired to do it tonight.

penny dainty
Okay whats the go here , is it a compulsion , a disease? Who can tell me? Every Hogmany I get the cleaning bug , i scrub and wash and hoover ect ect ect till the place is gleaming, my Aussie mates think i'm daft, but it has to be just so.
My bins will all be empty and before the new year rings in i will take whatever rubbish is left in the house and take it outside to the bin. A clean house , a clean start to the new year .
Is anyone else as obssesive as me at this time of year? smile.gif
Heather
Penny, it's those Scottish mammy's we had who are to blame for all this cleaning for the New Year.

Upstairs is all done, dusted and hoovered. The down stairs floors have been brushed. I'm relaxing with a wee cup of tea before I wash all the floors.

I keep asking myself who's idea was it to have wooden floors, when a run over the carpets with a hoover is quicker. rolleyes.gif
witshisname
Well it's bitter cold outside,so i'll nip across the road for some milk & Bread..and then i'll get stuck into the Goodies in the Basket smile.gif

Jings Bob, ye've been awa' too long, it's a boatle o' irn bru that should be first and foremost. biggrin.gif

Tinned Haggis???? ohmy.gif
Elma
Yes Penny.............saw it when I was over last in the Scottish souvenir department of the stores. Couldn't bring myself to buy it though, can't imagine what it tastes like. I prefer the real thing, thank you huh.gif laugh.gif
stratson
By the looks of the icy roads outside will be doing what I have been since a week past wednesday, staying home. Oh, for the thaw to get out walking. smile.gif
Elma
Thankfully all our roads get ploughed and gravelled as soon as the snow falls and we have a by-law in the town that everyone with a sidewalk has to have it cleared by 10 a.m. The by-law enforcement officer comes round to check.

Tomorrow, well later today, I'll do some shopping then prepare to have some friends in for dinner in the evening. Actually should get off to bed it's 1 o'clock, goodnight all. smile.gif
ilookedup
Today ... I'm trying not to eat! Weighed myself this morning, always a mistake after

Yes Penny,you can get our national food in a can.I had my doubts last year when I tried it for the first time,but it tastes just like the kind we used tae get out of the butchers.This tin cost $8 and if my cousin had gotten me the regular Haggis(ball) it would've cost her nearly $20..but Mmmmm it sure is tasty wae a plate of chips smile.gif
