Thanks Heather sorry no cake left kids ate it and took remainder home for pieces for work biggrin.gif

Well today we are of to South Queensferry for a Sail then back for High Tea at Hotel then home about 6.30 with our little club from complex Nevs not going hes had a bad couple of weeks with his foot got an infection and needs to rest it so he is quite happy to stay home and be in charge of Remote Control[am good to him] biggrin.gif ...yes you are Anne and he having the remote will make him feel really important, and take his mind from off his foot as well. biggrin.gif hope it heals quickly.
Not sure if you went for the sail or is it tomorrow Wed. either way , I hope the weather is /was good. cheers lol

Heather
Meanie, I bet she ate most of the birthday cake. sad.gif


The son of a friend of my sister was over here in Scotland staying with our niece who has two sons about the same age.
My sister asked me to get her a couple of packs of her favourite Chocolate Caramel Biscuits for the guy to take back for her.
So I bought four packets of the biscuits and one pack of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate and another of Cadbury's Chocolate Caramel for my American bro-in-law who loves our chocolate. There are eight bars of chocolate in each pack.

The guy bought that much stuff when he was here he could not get my items in his suitcase. So I am working my way through all the chocolate biscuits and as I am a chocoholic, the bars of chocolate are are no bother to eat except that they are not doing my waistlaine any good. unsure.gif

I can just imagine my sister's face when she goes to collect her goodies and finds they are still here in Scotland. sad.gif
angel
Heather just tell your sister to come on over and pick up her goodies
that is there is anything left ," your a wee greedy guts " tongue.gif
We have had nice weather these last couple of days but yesterday was to hot, with the humidex reading the temp was some 42C deg. ,
today a bit better with the breeze, so I am outside working in the yard
and just came downstairs to cool off. then out again.
hope you weather has improved and then you can get your wallpaper biggrin.gif or maybe we should all go for a sail with Anne !.

Heather
Angel, I can never say no to chocolate.

I remember my first date with my husband. We went to see a movie and he told everyone he bought me a box of chocolate's and I sat all through the film eating all the chocolate's and never offered him one. So what, if he wanted some chocolate he could have bought himself a couple of bars. laugh.gif
angel



Heather ,your story reminds me of a date I had one time with a guy
whom I thought was the living end, " he drove a car " !

anyway we went to see a movie in the city I think it was foreign,
although I don't remember what it was called.
we got into the hall and settled and the movie started , then this hero,
brought out a wee brown bag with caramels all stuck together in the bag
and offered me a sweetie laugh.gif I cannot print what I thought of him then,
" I would be barred from the boards "
what a lousey date ! I took the tram home and he drove home to dalmuir laugh.gif
Heather
Angel he sounds a right tight fisted one offering you a sticky sweet. Yuk.

Anne, I have admire you and Neville, us expats just wish we could get up and go on these lovely wee trips about the country of our birth. With such close proximity to such wonderful countryside there is a danger of not taking advantage of it. However, by your sojourns I can see that you enjoy the scenery of all sorts of "airts and pairts" of the lovely country that is Scotland.
Heather
My wee adventure today was to do a big ironing, there is not a thing left. smile.gif
angel

My younger son came down for a few hours this morning and helped out with a few little jobs that needed done in the yard, so that was great and I did get more plants for my planters.
It is really hot outside now so, I think that will be me indoors with the a/c.
for the rest of the day. cool.gif

Hi Lass I see you found you Keys biggrin.gif
would'nt be the first time for me
when I was looking for my car keys , they
were in my purse but it was in the fridge.
My family used to say that I kept the
money in cold storage.
I took my car this morning to be service'd
and on walking back home I got caught at the
railroad crossing and I think I stood there for maybe
15mins.or so , until the freight train passed
I thought I would just collapse because of the heat.
it seems to me that today is so humid.



glasgow lass
