I'm off to Florida at the begining of March so I'm off to buy a bathing suit.Yuk!!!!. The shape I'm now in I think I might need to buy the Good Year Blimp laugh.gif.Never mind the shape, the peely wally legs are enough to put anybody aff.My daughter told me not to expect to look like Ursula Andress walking out of the ocean ,after all she is probably as old as me now and would look in about the same shape !!!!!. wink.gif I figure up at the lake we are so private that nobody will even notice me .
I've got the knitting needles out again ,I'm going to be a great granny once more .This time it's twins !!!!.Say a wee prayer for the babies .One is a good bit smaller than the other so will have a wee fight before it's even born .We're all over the moon here .We think they are due in August .Ultra sound on Tuesday ,so we will know more after that is done .
Betty ,Apple Blossoms are just apples in pastry but the pastry is wrapped around in strips .
Mags says she can buy them ,so maybe you can check Marks &Spencer .
betty2

We got a right scare .Our Mum to be was driving home from work on Friday and her car got sideswiped ,rolled over and ended up upside down in a ditch .The drunk driver who hit her had run a red light .Lucky for us another motorist blocked the bu$#er in and called the police .He was taken away in hand-cuffs .They had to cut Ashley out of the car .She's been in hospital since .They think the baby is OK .They said if anything was going to go wrong it would happen in two or three days so we've just passed the third .Please all keep you fingers crossed ,we couldn't bear to lose another wee mite .
