Hi Betty,and awe the rest of you friends. It's been so long since I visited with you all. Yer wee hoose looks right Christmassy there Betty. I can just smell them mince meat pies..hmmmmm. Been havin so much trouble gettin oan the board, and for long enough, I just couldn't post a reply. But oor scatter brain of a lass by the name of Catherine,and our friend George Muir, suggested that I just re-register,and that is just what I have done. So I fancied up my handle a wee bit. I kind a like the "new Me"....Hope your feeling better Betty...And Catherine, I know the kids must be really excited to see their Nana...Great sayin hello to one and all again...cheers...Rena wink.gif

So Catherine, a lonsman are you? Our Menorah's also lit so a Happy Channukka to you too. It's nice you're going to have your Mom with you over Christmas. Enjoy! I saw on the news that the Canary Islands had a plague of locusts. They showed golfers playing through the swarm. Ugh!
Heather
I'll just sit here and enjoy the Christmas decorations as I could not eat another mince pie.

A crowd of us went out to St Mary's Whifflet last night and after the service we were invited into the hall for tea. What a spread, cherry, sultana, and madeira bun, shortbread, mince pies,wine, tea & coffee.

The night before we were at St. Joseph's Stepps and had another buffet. A selection of sandwiches, sausage rolls, and other wee tasty bites that I do not know the name of, and a big selection of lovely cream cakes, mince pies, tea & coffee.

Isn't Christmas time great, especially when you get invited to all the these lovely buffet's. laugh.gif

Shalom, Catherine & Boots.

Awfy gled the board's back oan again.
Heather
Well I finally got a list off my son for the g'children's Christmas pressies. So off I went into town today and went into Boots the Chemist and got the g'son his pressies.

Awe, right now Bing is singing White Christmas on the radio, all together now!!!!!!!!!!!!

My son said I would get the g'daughters pressies in Argos, so I went to the one in Stockwell Street. Some of the items on the list were still available. I filled out my list and waited in a queue a mile long to pay for them. The girl listed them on her comp., I wrote the cheque then disaster, I could not find my Switch card!!!!!!!!!!!! and it is the only one I use. Tipped the handbag out, no card. I had left it in Boots!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and she could not take the cheque without the card. I at least had the sense to ask the girl in Argos to reserve the items for me.
I went away back to Boots and to the girl who served me, she recognised me right away and said she had handed it into the cash dept., waited about 20minutes before I got it back.

As I was back at that end of the town I decided to check out Index for the other items on the list and got some of them but, one was a big box and the others in smaller boxes, so I went for a cup of tea then came home and had a glass of wine to calm my nerves, as the town was packed and I was all harassed.

When my son came in I gave him a cheque told him to pay it into his account then go to Argos and pick up the items in reserve and pay with his cheque and he had two days to get them. Well he has a car so it is easier for him and some of the other items were also in boxes and I had enough of tripping over boxes and struggling on and off trains.
Well I asked him for the list three weeks ago and he just gave it to me yesterday, so it's all his fault!!!!!!!!!!!!! laugh.gif getting me all harassed.

Still have to get pressies for Mum, hubby and son.

I had to think twice before I put that post in, incase you came up here and put my windows in. wub.gif

Good news about your appointment with the eye Specialist.
betty2
A wee quiet wummin like me puttin windows in NEVER Did see the funny side of it tho, methinks ah'll need tae srart previewin ma posts (as if that wid make ony difference) On a merr serious note I am petrified of this coming appointment, the literature I recieved with my appointment tells me it will be quite a lenghthy examination lasting up to three hours. Also I must have someone with me (thats no problem) as my sight will be blurred for a time after the tests are completed. And these tests are no picnic. But I'm putting it out of my mind until after the festive season canny be a sour puss at this time of year biggrin.gif

Had a tearful but happy call from my friend Morag Scott last night , she had been contacted by her canadian cousins, Another happy ending to the wonders this board can give rolleyes.gif

Merry Xmas
Heather
Well done Betty. I thought there was a good chance you might know the Scott family.

What a great Christmas present you have given to Marvina, her sister and all their relations. smile.gif
Heather
Well that's the g'childrens Christmas presents all wrapped up.

The 3yrs old is getting Dora's Talking Back Pack, Electronic Keyboard, Snow White Micro Cottage, & Baby Born.

When you press the mouth on the Back Pack it speaks, also has other items with it.

Snow White's Cottage looks great. I tried to get it opened to have a wee play but would have ripped the box getting it out. It has the Seven Dwarfs, Snow White and the Prince. The cottage has stairs to an upper level and a bed for Snow White after she eats the poisoned apple. The cottage opens out and has other household items and tools for the dwarfs.


Baby Born also speaks and can be put in a bath to be washed.

The 6yrs old is getting that old favoutite Mouse Trap with 3 traps. ( I remember buying this for her Dad when he was young).

Marvin's Magic Hat. This is a hat with a white rabbit and books with instructions on how to do the magic tricks.

Magic Hair Beader & Animal Hospital Care & Rescue Centre.

The 13yrs old g'son is getting an Electric Shaver. ( Yes he shaves, his Dad who is quite dark, black hair & brown eyes also had to start shaving at 13yrs). I also got him a Sports Toiletry Bag and put in hair gel, after shave & deodorant.

We fell about laughing a few weeks ago when the g'son said he had to go home as he was going to the School Disco and he had to get a shower and a shave.

Still got my mum and our son's gifts to wrap. I wrapped hubby's pressies as soon as I got them in case he went snooping.

I can't wait for Christmas so I can get into the Snow White Cottage and guess who will be getting her hair beaded!!!!!!!!!!!!!
