Isobel:
YOU DID WHAT! ate the last empire biscuit ? did you share it with anyone? I'm drooling thinking of it, I think Betty is having too much fun, she either found a nice man for herself, or she's singing to all her friends, I can tell you with the amount of songs she knows, she might never return to GG sad.gif

Springburnlass
Hi everyone,
I`ve not had time to read through all the posts, (probably take me forever anyway) but I thought I`d say a quick hello to you all. wink.gif
Isobel
Welcome Springburnlass. Mind and take your shoes off Betty is awful fussy aboot her clean carpets. Pull up a wee chair and huv a wee chat way us. Next time tell us a wee bit aboot yourself.
August a would love to huve shared my wee bicci but there wis nabody in. A think you must be right aboot that Betty.Either that her grandson got rid of her fur cleaning his room.He He. You and I know the trouble that kin cause.Another hot and humid day here , its seven o'clock and the sun is still shinning and so dam hot. Time for a wee rum and a bit of relaxation in the back deck.
Springburnlass
Hi Isobel,
Thanks for the welcome. I`m relatively new to this chit-chatting on-line. I`ve lived in Glasgow all my life, married with three daughters, aged 18, 15 & 4. I`m a mature (almost geriatric lol.) student nurse, just about to start second year of my degree course. I`ve worked at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary as an auxiliary nurse for twelve years. Born in Springburn, Auchinloch Street, never moved away from the North of the city.
August26
Welcome Springburnlass:
My Godmother lives on Ashgill Rd, we were there a few years ago, had a nice visit, after you take your shoes off at Betty's house give her the bottle of vodka you brought, I guarantee she will sing you a few songs, quite a few at that, did you bring the coke to go with the vodka? when your at the Royal check and see how my apendix are doing, they took them out quite a few years ago, Christmas in the hospital, sure was fun.

Now Isobel, I was here, I heard you eating that empire biscuit, like my Aunt used to say to her son, I can hear you swallying(is that how you spell it) so don't try to fool me.

It's very humid down here also, I go from work (where the air conditioning broke down last Tuesday) to the air conditioned car, to the air conditioned house, I can't stand the humidity, my husband told me not to drink so much water apparently it flushes the electrolytes out of your system, now he has me drinking 2 glasses of gatorade every day, I hate that stuff, but had to admit to him that I did feel better. rolleyes.gif

Knock, Knock, can I come in Betty? I was just readin ower some posts that I had missed recently and I noticed that you were wondering about Hamilton Street, Govan. Well it tells you right here on the GG in the "Info" section that the name of that street was changed a long time ago. It's now called NETHAN STREET. I couldnae find any pictures of it. Nice to have a wee walk down memory lane, eh? biggrin.gif

Ahhhmmmm back finally. Hooked up again I was soooo mad at being offline for a week. How is everyone? I'll pit the kettle oan, mibee someone will drob by rolleyes.gif
Mary Doll
Hello the hoose! Is it o.k. tae come straight in? Hi Marion, I was wondering where you were, hope the computer wisnae doon wi'wan ae thay Summer viruses. The kettle will be biled dry by noo, so jist get a couple ae glesses and pour us oot a drink fae this wee boattle ae chardonnay - 2.99 fae Tesco. By goad, she disnae vacuum in here much. Whit ur aw they crumbs? Is it empire biscuits? And she shouldnae be storin' aw they emty vodka boattles under the sink, she should be RECYCLIN' them. I'll take them for ma ain RECYCLIN' pile oan ma road oot.
Marion Dougan
Hi Mary Doll, two glasses o wine coming up. How are you, hope all is well. crumbs everywhere, their always eating biscuits in Betty's hoose. Between us we keep it tidy
Heather
Marion pour me a glass of vino, I can't get used to this tea thing. That's what I love about Italy they drink vino there the way we drink tea. No chocolate biscuits thankyou.
The last day in Rome we were sitting up at the Trevi Fountain with pizza and vino and I broke a front tooth. I was at the dentist yesterday and I have to get a crown put in. So now I am walking around with a dressing where my tooth should be. I had to get root treatment and it was very painful especially when he took the nerve out, I felt like screaming with the pain. Afterwards the dentist said "you did well" he never knew how close he came to getting a punch on the face. You know how when something is painful you feel you want to punch something well I wanted to punch him, lucky for him I am not a violent person.

Someome else can clean up, I'm just going to sit here with this bottle of wine and drown my sorrows thinking about all the money this crown is going to cost me. sad.gif
Marion Dougan
Heather here's yer gless o wine. Wow an expensive trip eh? Pit yer feet up hen, ah'll run the hoover an dust, am no dain the sterrs cause a did them the last time, mibbee Mary Doll 'ill dae them rolleyes.gif There's a guid Susan Hayward movie coming oan, I want to live, let's pit oor feet up an enjoy the movie

Well Marion:
Your finally back, where in heaven's name were you? hopefully not at the local bar, you have Marydoll cleaning up with you, but I have to warn you, Heather is very fussy how people clean so you two had better do a good job, otherwise she might batter both of you, she a toughy I know cause she's my big sister, make sure everything is in it's place or she will throw it in the garbage, so don't say you weren't forewarned. tongue.gif

August
Heather
Excuse me little Sis, I did not throw anything in the bin I threw it in your bedroom, right in the middle of the floor. Well what did you expect, you three came in from school and threw blazers over the couch, dropped schoolbags on the floor and kicked your shoes off and left them where they fell. It was me that got the telling off if the living room was untidy, that is why I always sent you three to your bedrooms before Mum came home. laugh.gif

Heather
Betty, I was glad to hear that Lee got the job. How quick can he get Gorgi Registered?????? so he can fit in my new cooker laugh.gif

Have not heard from Tammy. I hope she and her family are having a good time and getting around and going plenty places. There are lots to see and do in Bonnie Scotland.

When Tammy gets around to phoning we'll all meet up for a night out.

Was at Tollcross swimming on Friday with the three g'children. I lost my pass a while ago and although I had my passport with me they said I needed proof of my address which I did not have and they made me pay 2.00 to get in.
What really annoyed me was that my details are on their computer. I used to buy a yearly pass as I have been going swimming for years. I used to go to Easterhouse regularly straight from work then on to my Mothers for tea, or going on a Saturday with the g'children. Since the Easterhouse pool closed for renovations we have been going to Tollcross.

My son run us down to Tollcross but when we phoned him to come and collect us we could not get hold of him. So there we were walking up Wellshot Rd. going to Shettleston to get the bus and the g'son says " gran by the time we walk up to the bus stop, get a bus, then walk from the Main St. to the Edinburgh Rd. we would be quicker getting a taxi". I told him he was lucky he was not walking home to Springhill as I expected his Dad to collect us. The funny thing was, his wee sisters were all excited at going on a bus and were hoping for a double decker as they wanted to sit upstairs.
betty2
Heather I was at tollcross on thursday night have been going for the past 3 weeks its ladinight and a cheery crowd they are. I really enjoy it , still dont swim tho but i enjoy the other facilities.
