Thanks for all the lovely comments wub.gif it sure is great to be back to work and it feels good to be back on track and running aboot again as much as i tried to keep myself busy the 10 weeks i was off i found the days were just too long ,while i was off i had a good spring clean in the house and every cupboard and drawer in the house is all organised so thats one good thing i suppose ,Jakka they did arrest the couple who attacked me and thier first court appearance is in may the police have informed me that they are likley to plead guilty as it was all caught on cctv camera and is crystal clear images so hopefully it wont go to trail but will keep you all posted on that as they case goes to court . Hope Angie is okay havent seen her online for a while so hope she's ok will send her a wee pm to say hello and you Melody we missed you pal ,Boots good to see you back online pet hope all is well with you,and Betty have you had any luck at the bingo latley ? well folks got my brother and his wife round for sunday lunch today so i better make a start and get those spuds peeled biggrin.gif

Hi Betty I was watching this show on the telly the other day,it ws called "Bringing Home Baby" and it was a young couple and th dads mom came from Ireland and guess whit the weans name wis CALEB,I thought I have to let Betty know this,
we had a wee snow squall there a minute ago ,you could not even see the house across the street from me . wink.gif
jakka13
Wee Mag's it's been impossible to see the other side of the street on and off since the month came in .I ventured out today
.DROVE accross the street to the grocery store , got out of the car in winter boots ,two sweaters and a down filled winter coat .The walk from where I parked was less than 100 yards and before I got inside I lost the feeling in my fingers ,toes and if I hadn't had my hood up I'd have lost the feeling in my nose .
Worse than Baltic .
Been too many years of mild winters here in Canada you forget how it used to be before Global Warming .Mind you I wouldn't mind any kind of warming right now .

jakka13
Hi Betty ,glad to hear your knee's feeling better .
Keelie ,sorry I missed you .I would have loved a walk about Partick .Never mind ,one of these days I'll fly over for a visit and link up with you .Haven't been on much these past couple of days .
Busy stitching and knitting and stuff .I'm planning to go down to the US to see the weans at Easter and I like to make them something when I go down .I'm going to have to venture out soon .I need more wool .There's snow up to our ar#$% here and still freezing cold .Hate winter .
I spent yesterday cooking .I usually do a big cooking day and then freeze everything into single servings .I made twelve curry meals and twelve chile and sixteen shepherds pies .I cooked turkey breast and sliced it for sandwiches .I made a batch of sausages and baked some chocolate chip cookies .I've put some in the press if anybody wants one .Now I'm going to have some hot chocolate and go to bed .Good night all ,sleep tight .
betty2
You have had a busy day Jakka , but time well spent I would say
Went out tonight the first since saturday and boy did I pay the price, the knee is as bad as ever . Think I,ll have to pay another visit to the doctor. Its never been this painful before, and I cant put any pressure on that leg at all.

Arrangements all made for the christening for the 24th of the month.
keelie gal
Hope your leg gets better in time for the christening Betty sounds painfull so i hope the doctor can give you something to ease it up,Im having a wee valentines meal with pals round tonite as we never go out valentines nite the restaraunts are too busy were gonna wait till saturday night and go out for a meal then when its less hectic as last year we waited an hour and a half to get our food our table was booked for 8 and had our food at half 9 so we were starving and thought never again got a lovely bunch of flowers and a card delivered to work today from John which was a suprise as we said we was not gonna bother with cards and pressies this year just go for a meal ,so on ma lunch break i had to dive to the shops and buy him a card and a bottle of single malt ,got caught short laugh.gif
Elma
You had better get that leg seen to Betty, you can't go on suffering like that. Something must be able to be done to ease the pain and you have to have it better for wee Caleb's baptism. wub.gif Hope you have a better day today.
keelie gal
I agree Elma ..Betty keep us posted and i really hope yer leg gets better soon .. and yer back tae yer wee shoaping trips doon the toon thinking of ya pal and sending you a big healing hug and keeping ma fingers n toes crossed it works wub.gif

Happy Belated valentine day everyone!!! Haven't had much chance lately to get in here. But, thankfully Keelie and Jakka and Karyn keep tabs on me. And usually Angie too at least once a week, but she's been MIA for a couple of weeks, I sure hope she's ok? I've had a quick read of a couple of topics and I see evryone is having awful weather!!! Today we are back to cold winds and heavy rain! I am truly fed up with it. I can't remember the last time I was warm! I phoned Phil from work the other day and said if we don't go awaysomeplc sunny I'm gonna snap! So, we are away during Spring Break for 8 nights to Puerto Vallata, I can't wait! We both need a break. Work has been so busy that I am thinking of a career change. The 12 hr days without a break at all are starting to do me in and the people are getting heavier and heavier, every day my back is sore. I go home and basically go to bed. And I spoke with a supervisor of the increasing abuse we take from people who call for us and nurses at the hsopitals, he agreed it's getting to be a bit much for everyone. So, you might see how desperate I am for a break. LOL! On a happier note, I had a wonderful Valentine's day. I made us a lovely dinner of stuffed chicken breasts, new potatoes and corn on the cob and picked up a huge strawberry and chocolate cheese cake. Yum. And my woderful hubby brought me a dozen of the prettiest orange/red roses home, which I wasn't expectng since we booked a trip days before. Watched Rachel play hockey and then home again. Keelie glad you are enjoying being back at work and that was so sweet all those gifts and people askng for you. Well, best get myself moving here. Just wanted to say hello.
