GL I'll have one of your custard tarts .That and a wee cup of tea will just hit the spot .The pies and peas went down a treat so something sweet will just top things off .
Betty, just saw the pictures of Caleb and he is absolutely gorgeous. Haven't been on this

Here Jakka ye probably werr a lot safer than ye thoat in that Taxi considerin about hauf the Taxi Drivers in Toronto are Qualified Doctors an jist cannae afford the Canadian Medical Exams to practise in the country.
Ah think the other hauf are Engineers...they could probably build us a hoose oan the side laugh.gif
Stay where ye are though pet, if it's no snaw then it's thae puddles that ye don't know are there till ye put the foot doon an end up wae waater haufway up yer leg!

Shirley Ann had to go back to hospital yesterday, post natal day care. Her blood pressure is sky high .Arrangements have been made for a midwife to check on her at home on a daily basis.. Shirley ann has 3 sisters who are helping out with Caleb, who is doing great.

The pie n peas went doon well Jakka , is there ony custard tarts left?

Night Betty, time you went to your bed. I just had another wee go at the driveway to get rid of the snow----my neighbour is a wonderful person but he actually mounds the snow at equal height on both sides of his driveway, as far as I am concerned just getting the darned stuff off is good enough.
