Mary us lassies brought up in the Cowcaddens are a hardy lot. laugh.gif

I used to do the flagstones twice in the early days, a few days apart. Now they only need one going over every year.
I pour the bleach into a pail and use a mop to soak the flags and just mop back and forwards as though washing the floor. laugh.gif

Hi Purplefan ,glad to see your enjoying your trip back to Glasgow
Plenty to do in the Partick Byres rd area, my wife and I pop over from time to time
I was in Mansion st last week, spreading some of my old aunts ashes as close as I could get to where number 21 stood, the rest of her ashes were spread at The Pencil Largs

Today I was hillwalking in the Eddleston Peebles area, smashing sunny day

Bye for now, norrie
Purplefan
sorry to hear of your tast, norrie, But nice gesture. Don't think i'd like my ashes scattered over barloch street, but
i would not mind ending up on angels mantlepiece so i could get a whif of her meat loaf. she pm'd me the recipie
best meat loaf ive tasted, or i'd like to be stuffed and used as a coat hanger in cats home.
