Elma
I was informed this morning that the BBQ that we had planned for today was to be held at my house as my new deck is huge and able to hold everyone comfortably. The family brought everything, the steaks, chicken, salad, tomatoes, potato salad, the drinks,everything, all I provided was the space, they even did all the cooking. The event was planned as it is my eldest grandson's birthday today and he came in from Calgary for the weekend and last night was the final night of the play that my other grandson was directing, the youngest ever director of our Community Theatre plays, he is 18! He is usually on stage but this time was asked to direct the play "Smoke and Mirrors". We had a great time, we were outside until after 9 o'clock as it was so warm. They have all gone home now so I have time to relax......... tongue.gif biggrin.gif

I've just munched my way through two bars of Cadbury's Fruit & Nut. Well the shop was selling them two for 1-20, so what could a body do. smile.gif
margie
Hi HEATHER, You talkin about cadburys chocolate reminded me tae ask , dis anybody know where in Glasgow a kin buy Cadburys Tiffin. I know yi can get it in Ireland but no luck here. cheers Margie. biggrin.gif
stratson
Elma, you will have to send pix of your new house, great having space to entertain.

Angel, am not up to anything today, been in bed most of the day, my body told me to take it easy, so I did. Hope tomorrow to have some energy. This dreich weather isn't helping any.

Am seeing the Dr. tomorrow, perhaps he will have some answers for me.

Heather, am amazed how slim you stay eating all that chocolate, great you can enjoy without worry of gaining weight.....Eat up hen. laugh.gif

Annewan, don't tell me you've spent all your latest big win already, really shouldn't be surprised as I know you are generous to all family and friends. Hope you get a substantial win tonight, Guid Luck, biggrin.gif
Heather
Stratson I don't know about not putting on weight but my clothes are feeling very tight around the waist these days.

I have to stop eating all that chocolate. sad.gif

Margie I don't have a clue where to buy Irish tiffin chocolate. You could probably buy it Online from Ireland.
margie
Heather, its no irish hen it,s cadburys but yi kin buy it in ireland cheers Margie. laugh.gif
Heather
Aye I know that Margie but it has the best of Irish milk in it and probably a drap of Baileys Irish Cream. laugh.gif
stuarty
Iwent to argos and bought a new petrol mower and strimmer as my boy said he cant do the sides anymore and a got a bargain 119,99. tho old petrol mower lasted 16years and the engine is still sound as a pound its just the rust all aruond the mower so a think del might make a go cart or somthing for Lydia so a need a new settee and it will be a sofa bed and 2 seater to match as climbing stairs in a mountain so a can have a proper bed to sleep in down stairs well as ma pal says theres nae pockets in shrouds so am spending just for a wee while laugh.gif
stratson
You've got to be comfortable stuarty.. biggrin.gif

Today will take it as it comes, have no plans until late afternoon. smile.gif
Heather
I totally agree with you Stuarty, why save the money for others to spend double quick when we go.
You should enquire about getting one of those chairlifts to take you upstairs.

Out lawnmower blew up last week so we will have to see about buying another one.
Today I did the edging round the front lawn and weeded back and front.

Hi Stratson, be good to yourself. smile.gif
ashfield
Well, they are predicting that we will be getting torrential rain over the next few days and, guess what, I am in the process of packing the car to go away camping. Thank goodness my skin is waterproof laugh.gif
stuarty

Anne1
Spend your money doll and indulge yourself on anything you fancy be good to yourself you are so worth it, and its so good to see you posting regularly again, huggs biggrin.gif
Heather
I was going into town today but the rain is pouring down so I'll stay home and do an ironing, after I finish my porridge of course.

Can life get better than that. laugh.gif
angel
O' yes it can Heather ! anyway guys I just this moment got a call fom my sister and her husband , they will be in for a blether in about an hour,
which usually means apox. 90mins. and then they will stay for about 30mins.,anyway that being said , I am wiped after all that tango-ing Iv'e done to Billy Vaughn's music.
Athough it is warm here at this time those clouds are looking pretty ominous and I,m hoping that it will clear by tomorrow because I am off on a couch trip for the day to a region called the Kawarthas here in Ontario
and I'm looking forward to the day and going buy coach is so much better than driving anymore, I just hate driving, I have always found it to be to stressfull so that being said I will now go and bake a batch of muffins for my visitors to have with their coffee. cheers , Anybody heard from stratson ?
witshisname

Heather
I had a lazy morning sitting blethering in our Parish Hall over tea and scones.

I then did the shopping came home and had lunch then did some knitting.
I'm knitting myself a bolero and the pattern has long sleeves but I am making them short, so I had to guess how many stitches and shaping. So it's anyone's guess how the turn out. rolleyes.gif

Annewan, enjoy your time at Ullapool.

Angel, I hope you enjoyed your Coach trip.
angel
I did ladies ,thankyou" might just do it again, one problem though ,
it was to darn hot. wub.gif
angel
well I've done enough dancing for today, I'll now go out and get some weeding done tongue.gif
TeeHeeHee
No need to weed here.
On the balcony with marquise fully rolled down we have 37C.
Out on the garden, in direct sun, the mercury is off the scale (55C max.) The grass is like dry straw. Usually we get thunderstorms in the evening here in this kind of weather but they are not dropping any rain at the moment.
I'm not complaining though, last two winters were exceedingly long.
Just means I have to hop around with the garden hose. rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif
stratson
No need for hoses in Glasgow just now. Has rained incessantly all week.

Doesn't feel like Fair Friday here in Glasgow.

Remember you always got something new, grannies took the weans to the shows in Glasgow Green
,
The park across the road had Marquees and entertainment within for the children also teaching them
:(about wildlife etc. Such a shame it rained, probably would have been better attended sad.gif

angel
Well Tee no matter what the temp is the weeds still grow here, drought or no or maybe I'm simply delusional but I will lug the water hose around this evening, because the grass is going brown here also. "summertime !
Heather
Angel could you cut our grass while your out there.

We have to get a new lawnmower as the one we have blew up. wub.gif

The grass is badly needing cut and it has rained every day since last Friday. sad.gif
angel
Heather is it because of the rain or your lawnmower that is the reason for not cutting your grass,,, on a brighter note you don,t have to lug around the water hose. tongue.gif
Heather
Angel it's actually the rain because I could borrow my neighbours lawnmower. smile.gif

If the weather had been better we would have bought a new lawnmower this week.

Another woman and I had a good laugh yesterday about all this rain.
She asked me last Thursday if she could have some of the seeds off the marigolds when they start to die off. I told her she could have some marigolds instead as they grow all over the borders in the front garden drowing out some of my other plants.
I throw some of the marigolds out as well as a lot of the seeds.

So I dug up about two dozen marigolds for her and told her to give them a good watering to help them settle in. It has rained every day since last Friday. laugh.gif

angel
never mind heather, jist come along with me and listen to singsong.
nae cares at all just "let the rains come down" tongue.gif
angel
the weather channel here is forecasting severe weather in Ontario and Quebec, Tornadic activity and it does'nt look to promising outside my window, so I'll just listen for the storms , last time a few weeks back the lighting hit my answering machine and the surge from that messed up my computer, Ces't la Vie. sad.gif
