Hello ladies, Well we had a strange weather weekend here, it was scorching hot one day..34 degrees, then down a bit, pouring rain and this am we woke to th house shaking with thunder and lightening and another downpour!? Oh well have more painting to get done today. Brittany's room turned out great, I think she will be thrilled and surprised when she gets home from Thailand. It's a "big" girl room now. lol! And seeing as there was a mix up with my new bedroom suite NOT arriving Saturday, I can repaint our room now, I'm off for the paint this morning after I drop Rachel at school. Walls are all ready to go. So, that should be done today. Keelie the photos of your weekend were great. Wee Blossom is a shining star, she gets cuter the bigger she gets! Always dressed so nice too! Catherine you sounfd like you have had a fab weekend too. Saturday ws so hot, we h friends and neighbours over to sit out on our deck and had drinks, appys and good laughs. Next night we met up with Brittay' boyfriend's parents and went to a aThailand restaurant in honor of our kids we are missing. It was so tasty! Can't wait for them to come home though. But, they seem to be having the time of their lives. Well, I've put the kettle on and I've done the stairs, windows are open to let some fresh air in the place....hoping someone arrives with something yummy to go with the tea and a chat. I wonder where Betty is?
jakka13
Pure baltic here all weekend .I've had the fire going in the livingroom 24/7 since I got here .Found the place in good shape when we opened up .No signs of any intruders .A few cobwebs in the corners but that doesn't take much to clean out .I've still got tons of leaves to pick up .I've got rock gardens down at the front and I can't rake them I have to just pick them out one by one and it's too bloo$% cold to go lakeside .I've spent the last four days painting the kitchen cupboards .They took two coats of primer and then two coats of top coat .I'm really pleased the way they turnes out .
Well my show is just starting on BBCC so I'll catch you all later .

Did the usual Fleetwood Market, Cleveleys, bought some plants. Enjoyed the break but glad to be home.
Wee Zak was not well, he was taken to Yorkhill sick kids and they diagnosed Tonsislitis. He is on a 10 day course of Penicillin, he is picking up now. He is such a rumbustious wee boy, it must have been scary to see him just lying whimpering.Will see him today my wee darling boy.

Ah was just speaking with another favourite person of mine, Wee Mags and she's in fine form as always. Ah thought she was round the corner wi that good Glesga accent o' hers. It was lovely talking to her.
stratson
Hi Betty,
I have not visited Silverburn yet. My g/daughter has informed me of the buses you can take. You will get all of them in Union Street. 22, 23, 47, 57.>>>> Apparently the 23, and 47 will get you there quicker.

I keep meaning to go, just never gotten around to it.Hope this helps. biggrin.gif
betty2
Hi keelie lookin after Blossom an taking a WALK into town , well that soyunds like you are well on youre feet again.
Melody how you doin ? and I know what you mean about wee mags , when talkin with her you would think she had just stepped off a caur comin fae maryhill. still sports her glesca accent efter aw they years away.
Stratson thanks for info but wherr dae ah get these buses. biggrin.gif
buntyq
I've missed the GG so much. It is one problem after another with my computer. I cant wait until July when Bush's stimulus check comes. Delivery depends on the last two digits of my Social Security. I'm going to spend it on a computer. Its time to buy a new one. I've no idea what kind I will buy so if you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
betty2
Sure some member will come up with some sound advice for you bunty. Long time since I heard from you and even longer since we last met, maybe something we can rectify in the not too distant future rolleyes.gif
stratson
Betty, I sent you a p.m. after I had posted info, well, in case you haven't read or received it>>>> smile.gif

All of those buses stop, around Poundland, in Union Street, headind south.








...
betty2
Thanks stratson, but I,ll be putting that trip on hold for present, Once I get back from my hols. I am definately going to give it a try.

wee mags
the grandweans sure do you in dont they ?betty glad to see your still galivanting wink.gif
buntyq
Betty, good to hear from you. My daughter and her daughter will be here for a few days in June and both are very computer savy. I still dont want to buy a new computer until the check comes in July from GB. Its ironic that this money is supposed to stimulate our economy yet most likely my computer will come from China.

I was gone for 15 days in April on a wonderful Grand Circle Travel trip called "Holland and Belgium in Springtime". It was a wonderful vacation and the right time of the year to enjoy both countries. It was cool, which I like, and besides their itinerary, which was excellent, we were given ample time to explore on our own. There is definitely no language barrier in Europe where English is taught in the primary schools. Seven of our days was on a small ship cruising the rivers of Holland. It was like being in a five star hotel. GCT own their small ships and this allows them to maintain their high standard. I am definitely saving up to go on another small ship cruise next year. There is one that appeals to me at this time called "The Great Rivers of Europe". Land trips are interesting but I liked unpacking once for seven days and since these small ships carry 140 passengers at the most, its not as impersonal as the large ocean going ships.

If I didn't need the computer more, the stimulus check would go towards this trip in 2009.
betty2
