Anne, I know the place well and they were indeed very lucky, as we were a few years back on that road. There was a lot of snow and a car came round a bend on our side off the road. it would have been suicidal to touch the brakes and we just avoided him by luck.

Glad all safe and well. I won´t be going that road again probably as my friends moved from Stornoway over here, just 2 hours away at Mojácar.
Bilbo we have had a couple of scares there ourselves once by a bliddy big Stag appearing from nowhere just as wee reached the Gorge, second time like yourself some else put their brakes on and weaved all over the place luckily they missed us even in good weather am extrfemely careful there biggrin.gif
today I am just getting everything back to normal at home after a wonderful weekend with family and also glad that my son arrived home safely on Friday from Morocco ,via frankfurt before the chaos now at all of the European airports began.
Lots of cancelations here but not because of the weather, " which is pretty normal" but because of the conditions in Europe,. " I think its time
for those Airports to buy extra snow shovels ". smile.gif
Quietish day for us giving son lift to hospital for ECG later on a wee last nosey thru the shops, nae money tae spend .
Glad your weekend went well Angel bet the family enjoyed all your hard work and good food biggrin.gif
Keeping busy, bath/shower, feet, hair, by the time it takes to go through all the parapharnelia, hoping to get bedroom cleaned, mirrors etc, corners, son will vacum, cook evening meal,relax with the Evening news, by time dishes and kitchen gets the camsie bed will be a-calling. smile.gif
hi stratson ,you won't have much to do to day after all that work yesterday smile.gif

Eve," but I will think about that!,
I will go out in a bit and do a little browsing around the stores, the weather is'nt to bad here,some snow flurries and with the wind I think maybe around -15" cel. biggrin.gif
Just got back from seeing the new Chronicles of Narnia film in was great.
Now I am watching the weans as supper is on the go.
If I make it to Main road will be raiding Llidls. Naturally son will be collecting me. That will probably be as far as I get,then home and get feet up with a cappucino. biggrin.gif
Whit I'm dae'in the day is goin' down to the local RC Church.
I need a priest ... or better still a Bishop. I want to report a witch. (thought they'd got rid of them all rolleyes.gif )
I was lookin' in on Facebook yesterday and there's a message from a GG friend telling me to be careful wi' the booze during this Festive Season since I have enough accidents when I'm sober.
My German mate reads it and gets me on chat, "What's happened? have you had an other accident?"
"Naw, I'm ok hows trix?"
"My knee is playing up something bad."
"Oh Mick, I know where your coming from. When I came off the crutches my knee couldn't take the strain. Very dodgy, mate."
Later I go down to the Mall; it sits on the D/CH border and has 8 floors of parking slots and I'm parked on the 7th.
Floor is like an ice-rink but I go very, very, carefully to the lifts. Get my USB stick; ¤11.99, and 5 packets of paint brushes @ ¤0.99 each and return to car; very, very, carefully and at the next car to mine .....
finish up tits up on the floor. I felt my right knee jerk badly as I flew into the air and was only happy when I crashed onto the wet and icy floor that I hadn't further damaged my hip ... Which I wouldn't have done anyway 'cos that's a metal one now rolleyes.gif
Only grim determination is keepin' me aff the crutches now but don't tell me I haven't been hexed (LoL)
So I'm clearing a bit of snow away in the garden and plantin' the stake in the ground; well, actually, I'm supervising 'cos ma knee's no up tae it (LoL)
wee davy
Don't forget tae order a gallon ai Holy Water, and some Garlic, TH LOL
wink.gif (The Garlic is jist fer a curry btw well known tae keep witches at bay!)

davy laugh.gif
Startin' tae think that's good advice Davy ... Lord have mercy rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif
Can send you some holy water Tee Heather gave me loads back frae Rome, I know how you feel about snow ice and falling tonight im going to Bingo with my friend havent been out on my own or driven on my own since snow started [5wks ago] so keep yer fingers crossed for me that I dont end bottoms up the night or you will hear me over there wub.gif wub.gif

penny dainty
Ehhhhh ok Angel i will take your word on that one huh.gif
Anyway what did i do today , well its Hogmany in Australia so i cleaned , polished, scrubbed , washed , ironed, tidied, sorted and all the darn things that seem to compel me to do them on this day every year.What is it with Hogmany , does everyone get this manic urge to have everything just so to go into the new year, i will of course take out any rubbish in the house and put it in the bin before midnight as well so as i throw away all my bad luck before the bells .Manic i tell you , but i have done it for more years now than i care to remember.Does anyone else have this strange compulsion? Anyway All the best everyone for a safe and happy 2011 from me and my very clean house. biggrin.gif
I started out doing the same Penny, then I thought for a minute, said, "What the ****" and stopped. I know my house won't be clean for the rest of 2011 but it's lived in!!! biggrin.gif I will put the garbage out before midnight though, can't have that in the house at the bells laugh.gif
I always do my housework on a Friday so it was no difference today.
Anything I missed doing will stay that way for today as I have stopped going housework daft on Hogmanay.

I did make waffles with the waffle iron my sister sent me from America.
I followed the recipe in the book that came with the waffle iron, I even weighed everything on my scales. I started to put the dough on to bake but thought there was a bit much so I kept some back, just as well.
When I closed the lid down, dough started to run out the sides right on to the worktop. There I was scraping dough off the machine and the worktop, what a mess. ohmy.gif

Next time I try it, I will only make up a third of the recipe.
dont drink while baking Heather tongue.gif tongue.gif
