The worst thing is ah find masel cuttin into little pieces and putting the jam on a wee bit at a time, dae ye think ah should go tae the doctors? laugh.gif Sometimes ah worry aboot masel ! Ah don't want tae get auld........ooops too late!

Melody:
Don't worry about getting old just wear your red hat, and purple dress, and nibble at your scone, just think of this,"you are better over the hill, than under it" right biggrin.gif

Ye furgoat the sensible shoes Melody....wance ye hit them it's bedsoaks an herrnets fur you laugh.gif

betty, how did ye get oan? Let us know pet. Hows Lee doin?

Ahm up here, night two of jist me an the boys..ahm tryin no tae think of Jason as ah type. Dam aw they horror films ah used tae love tae watch.
Ah need tae tell ye's, hauf an hoor ago ahm clearin up in the kitchen, nonchalantly looks oot the windae an therrs ma wee floatin dock gently floatin doon the lake.
Ah flies oot, doon the sterrs, oan tae the beach an pulls it back in, waater up tae ma hin end, bugs clamarin fur a bite {an trust me therrs a hunner awa wae a guid dinner let me tell ye, greedy gets}
Ah gied it a shove an managed tae get it oan the sand, belted ower tae the dock an goat a boat rope, belts back an wrapped it roon the floaty then tied it tae a tree...ahm tryin no tae think aboot the fact ah cannae tie knots an wur no talkin daylight when ah tied it either.
Fact the mare ah think of it ah wis brave so ah wis, sno like me up here, hauf the time ahm walkin aboot wae a knife...{jist incase..y'no}
Keep the fingers crossed it's therr in the mornin pals.
Melody
Ye sound like Woman Friday there Catherine, hope things are ok this morning.
Mornin' all, it's another dreech day here, has rained for days now, the oddest weather here, thunder and lightening, overcast and miserable and yet really warm and stuffy, strange weather for us!
Catherine
Wumin Friday done it again Melody....Woke up this mornin at four wae the crack a thunder an lightenin rockin the joint...slithert oot the bed an went tae check oan ma raft....wis still therr but a couldnae see the rope ah tied.
Made masel a cuppa tea tryin tae get the courage up tae go doon an retie it...couldnae...so left it in ma da's hauns tae keep it safe ..an he did!! laugh.gif
Jist went doon therr the noo an retied it tae a tree, so hopefully it'll calm doon enough the day that ah kin rehook it tae the anchor...waves are aw foamy an seaweedy the noo...yuck roon the ankles.
Ither than that ahm fine, hows everywan else doin?
Sounds as if wellies are the order of the day eh?
Heather jist readin up therr, nothin worse than the teeth brekkin while yer on holiday, never fails wae ma mum either, she's paranoid aboot it.
Isobel

Melody

Isobel
A few years ago they closed down the glasgow eye infirmary, it then moved to gartnavel which is a general hospital, I think you are remembering the old gartnavel (which is still there) its a physciatric hospitalAnd catherine bad news they are now telling me that if I dont see the specialist regarding the cornea transplant there is nothing more they can do for me . I have agreed to SPEAK with him , it seems there is too much strain being put on my seeing eye which was my poorer eye to begin with . It is now becoming inflamed , so they have to try and improve the damaged eye. Know this aw sounds complicated , right now am feelin pretty low as you may remember I had this decision to make two years age and declined from having this op. To be truthful am S**t scared after all 5 op's. in the past with no joy an am no gettin ony younger sad.gif
betty2
still here in glesca

never mind the empire biscuit pour me a voddy
Melody
Betty it's no surprise that your apprehensive, it's only natural wait till you speak with the specialist before worrying too much. You'll have even more information then, in the meantime there will be an awful lot of folks saying a wee prayer for you to give you strength and courage in any decision that you make. So sit doon an ah'll get that large Vodka fur ye, dae ye want ice and a slice? wub.gif
Isobel
Betty , sorry to hear your news, but you know Betty it could make life a whole lot easier for you .Sometimes the thinking about things and the waiting is the hardest of all. Like Melody says ,we are all thinking of you . A feel like a know you all , your my friends and I will be praying that whatever decision you make its the right one for you .God Bless. smile.gif
tammy
Hi All,

We just got back a couple of hours ago. We left rain for scorching heat here! Betty and Heather, I was most disapointed to not be able to call you, my little phone book went missing in the shuffle somewhere along the line. Between moving from one house to another while visiting. But, you were both definately on my mind. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, even witht eh rain. We tried to go to Inverarry Monday and got turned back half way because the road had washed out in two places and wouldn't be open again for 24hrs.! But, we went to a very "interesting" place for lunch with one of Phil's Uncle's...the Drover's Inn? God almighty! Anyone been there? Dead animals all over the place and it was definately "authentic"..I don't think it's been cleaned since it opened in 1700 something! But, it was a fun day out of the rain. The kids got a good laugh out of it. One of them says she's going back to stay overnight there. And believe it or not, none of Phil's relatives had computers or internet! And I was kept pretty busy. Saw Stirling castle and Edinburgh castle. They were excellent. Went to Ayr. East Kilbride, Moss Park, Newlands and Castlemilk. Oh and Bearsden. Went to Paris and London for one week. I would have rather stayed in Scotland, but I had to let Phil see a little of what he wanted too. But, I'll never go back to Paris again! Once was enough! I'll have to keep this short, since I have laundry to do and I have to take my youngest to her grandmother's tomorrow. So, I will be away again for a few days. For everyone who wanted those cute magnets...I went everywhere and everytime we went sight seeing, I looked for them. I coudln't find them anywhere! Sorry, but I did try! Everyone in Glasgow was wonderful. But, I'm glad to be away from the rain and winds! Yesterday while doing my last minute shopping my umbrella blew inside out 3 times! I finally gave up! But, Saturday and Sunday were beautiful. I'll also be on a diet, since I'm sure I ate my fair share of BIG breakfasts every day! Wow! After eating that I wasn't hungry for the rest of the day, but it just kept coming! And the chocolates and biscuits! By the way...that's what put my suitcases WAY over the limit too! Could barely lift them. And I did try Thorton's chocolates and went to the Willow Tea room...both were lovely! Anyways, I really must get the laundry done! Again, thanks for all your advice, tips and good wishes. And Betty and Heather..hopefully next time! biggrin.gif
Isobel
Welcome home Tammy, now dont be complaining about the heat here after all the wind and rain in Scotland you should welcome some sunshine eh! So glad you enjoyed your trip look forward to hearing all about it. Looks like I may be heading back there myself. Just hopw we can squeeze a wee trip up to Glasgow.
annie laurie
Hi Tammy,

Welcome Home, sounds like you had a good holiday, even although the weather was a bit wet :-))

I agree with you Re Paris, once was enough for me, enjoyed it but would not want to take a second trip,

Re Fridge magnets, not to worry, but thanks for trying,

Look forward to hearing more about your trip once you get all rested up and organized again,

Cant believe 3 weeks have passed by so quickly, Cheers
annie laurie
Hello Betty2

I can imgaine what you are going through right now,
Just thought I would tell you my F-I-L who is now 90 yrs old, had both of his eyes operated on 30 odd years ago, had complete cornea's replaced, {hope I have that correct} anyway he only needs his glasses for reading, now
So don't give up, it is wonderful what they can do now in the 21st century, one day at a time, also try and not worry, as worry does put a stress on the eyes, you are in my prayers have faith God Bless
Melody
Tammy, it's still the same would you believe this morning, the weather has been the worst that I can remember. Shame we never got to meet, next time. Our weather in England was not too bad butit as not as nice there as in previous times. Seems to be the same everywhere. I'm glad to you had a nice holiday though, I'm killing myself laughing at you being in 'The Drovers' it's an experience is it not? It's hard to know if the folks sitting in there have been there a long as the stuffed animals laugh.gif
Take care.
Isobel
I just read in the Scotsman about a mud slide in or around Dundee. I am thinking the weather must have been pretty bad for that to take place. Also read this morning about a family who were in Austria on vacation who were involved in a bus crash .Both mom and dad are dead children managed to escape.
betty2
annie laurie
you have certainly given me some reassurance about the op', this is the 1st I have heard about someine having it , food for thought here , and melody I have to wait on the specialist contacting me so god knows when that;ll be
Tammy glad you enjoyed you're trip to glasgow but believe me it disnae aye rain here sorry we did'nt meet but that's the wey the cookie crumbles rolleyes.gif
