After checkin both classes, ah then nip up tae the office tae see if anyone's handed wan in..NAW.
Ah backtrack ower the fitba field, intae the car park tae see if it's been left in the motor..NAW.
It's also now been established by office staff that ahv parked ma car in STAFF parkin, so ah now huv tae remove it fae therr an find a spot oan the street that's no got any 'time limitation parkin'.

Done that whilst speakin the french very fluently unner the breath!

Goes back intae school an decides tae check Max's school bag wance mare cos ah jist hud a feelin ahd been haudin it goin in his class.
He's oot in the wee playgrun, beltin roon the wee speed track oan a three wheeler bike, wee face glowin.
After checkin the bag again, ah goes ower jist tae see if he's picked the phone up an its in his wee poaket.
Nope mum, ah didnae see it.....Okay darlin ah says, an pulls up his wee hood...an near noaked him oot cos therr's ma cell phone inside it.
Ah musta draaped it intae his hood when we wur openin a door somewherr.

Melody
Shalom Catherine and a very Happy Passover to you.
I hope your Seder includes Miriam's Cup symbolizing the miracle of Miriam's well, which sustained the Isrealites in their hard long journey in the desert, and is a symbol of the importance of women in the world. Enjoy your Matzoh. Ah'm really jealous this time!

פסח שמח וסדר לכלכם אלוהים הולך עמך הידיד היקר שלי.
בעלת יום שמח!


Naebudy will know the difference, but that says something like,
Have a Happy Passover and Seder and God go with you my friend.

Don't burn yer totties, whitever ye dae! laugh.gif

Melody
Hi ya Mags, nice to celebrate all the festivals with each other.
How you doing pal? smile.gif
wee mags
no bad melody ,I just read apost by scotslad telling us that all the streets we knew are being torn down,as they say here in yankee land "what a bummer"dae yae think she got the totties done ?dae yae think she was makin Potato pancakes ? thats a wee dish they make at Passover here I think? rolleyes.gif noo am no sure
boots
Hi folks and Happy Passover Catherine and all. I don't think CofC is making potato latkes (pancakes) today Mags. The holiday you're thinking of is Chanukka (Festival of Lights) and then they're almost a must...except maybe with my husband who claims he doesn't like them but then eats them anyway.
I was sorry to read Scotslad's post about all the buildings in Maryhill being torn down and I understand how you feel. I also liked the way you expressed those feelings in your post, fair tugged at the heart strings.
wee mags
Hi ya boots dont you love those wee pancakes wae a wee bit apple sauce mmm rolleyes.gif
Gemini
HAPPY PASSOVER to all, mmmmm potatoe pancakes and applesauce sooooooo good always have then when i make pork chops, catherine gonnae sell me sum o' yir energy hen ah cud be daen wi it.
boots
I enjoy eating them too but I don't like making them or rather I should say, I don't like the aroma when they're cooking, I don't even want to be in the kitchen. Have either of you tried them with sour crem along with the apple sauce? Really tasty!
buntyq
Is Ross's Dairy still in business. I'll be in Scotland the first two weeks of July with Suzyq and I would LOVE to buy some of their great scones. I'm looking forward to sharing our lovely country with my daughter. I hope the weather holds up. Weather down here in Georgia is predicable at that time of the year, but what can we expect in July? Any information from my pals on the Board will be greatly appreciated. wub.gif
Melody
Buntyq, I'll pray for some sunshine for you of course.
However expect everything and you won't be disappointed.
In July we can have lovely sunshine, no sunshine, rain hail or anything, be sure of one thing, it'll no what it does!! laugh.gif

She is a fine lady catherine's mum (well who else could have given us Ms canada biggrin.gif ) Its all uphill now catherine so TRY not too worry.
