Hi folks, guess I'm missing out on all the parties and such. Haven't been around for a couple of weeks'coz I've had a very bad bout of Bronchitus, never knew it could hit so hard. I'm really shocked after reading Betty's message but I hope you'll keep her wee hoose in good shape till she's back. Melody and Mags please let her know I'll be in touch as soon as I can get enough breath to carry a coversation. Hope to be back "on Board" soon. Cheers.

Hi Melody and girls, my daughters divorce becomes final on the 18th July, wasn't there a song about that, on boxing day last year she met a lovely guy, tall dark and handsome and an Aussie, and a FIREMAN.....when she saw him in his uniform at the station, she left there and stopped and texted him to say how good he looked. She will be 37 this Friday and it is so sickening to see them together, you would think they were 16 again. Only kidding we are so happy for them both. Melody did I say he is a FIREMAN..... Weather great here in Winter

Great ta see your back Betty. The place just seemed empty without you . Catherine ,I know what you mean about boys and bikes .Two of my grandsons (15&13) race dirt bikes .My heart is always in my mouth when I know they are racing .Their Dad had a very bad spill a couple of years ago and still has to wear a leg brace you'd think he would have more sense but he races to.
Strugglin with this heat ,trying to keep the gardens watered .It's even to hot to go into the lake .Anyway Betty let me know when it's my turn for the stairs ,it seems ages since I did them .Take care, Jakka

Angela, I know the feeling. I am off to America next month to visit my sister and it can't come quick enough.

Hope you enjoy Turkey, i've never been there.

It thought it was quite cold today.
Angela Chick
Hi heather, i noticed in one of your posts that you were of to america, and the hassle you got about renewing your passport one time,


Well i was starting to panic a bit but thankfully our passports came through yesterday.


Going on the 22nd of august to turkey, wen are you of to america .



angelachick
Catherine
Ah could drive tae America Angela tongue.gif ..then again ahm no too good drivin ower high bridges so cancel that laugh.gif

Ah need tae renew oor passports this year annaw, cripes a bloody fortune when yer daen them aw at the one time sure it is. Boys have always been oan ma Canadian passport, never did send Jake's British wan back for renewal an mines ran oot as well.
Canadians oot at the end of the year annaw dammit.
Must admit ah like the thoat of them havin therr ain, that way it disnae jist mean they huv tae fly wae me....faither could take them furra month somewherr y'no!! guffawguffawguffaw an winkywink!

Well we're headin up North the night fur the weekend, family weekend wae Geoffs brother in fae Vancouver an therr family, plus other brother an his family....we'll get therr around ten, jist leave here wae boys in the jammies aboot eight.
Three brothers golfin in the mornin {directors meetin they call it an the wimmen jist say 'sure it is' an up the sleeve gie it HA HA HA}
Geoffs aff Monday so we kin saunter doon at leisure, ah love it when we go up in the wan car cos he's aye the DD so an apperiteef is never oot the question.
Oh hear it's dinner time, chippie anywan?
Angela Chick
aye catherine a know wit ye mean, it cost me 126 quid plus 21 quid for the check and send service wae the post office but its for 10 year so its no so bad really wen ye think aboot it.


anyway enjoy your weekend and see you wen you get back biggrin.gif

Heather
I'm waiting for my new Passport to come through. I'm just hoping I do not have the same carry on as last time as I'm due to leave on the 18th August.

Catherine, in Britain all children are required to have their own Passports now. If the child is on their parent's Passport then that is accepted until that Passport runs out.

When I went to one of the instant photo cubicles to get my picture taken for my Passport a few weeks ago, a young couple were trying to get a picture of their baby who was only a few months old. The dad was holding the baby on the seat and crouched down behind her, while the mother worked the buttons. I could not help laughing and wondered if the baby will look anything like the picture this time next year. I think it is a bit crazy, a baby having to get a Passport. rolleyes.gif
Catherine
Heather over here the cubicle pictures they don't accept, hus tae be by a registered photographer an then printed oan the back the name of them....a certain size so that ye then get the 'stamp' an signature of yer lawyer.
Daen ma nails here laugh.gif ..an Geoffs jist appeart wae the fish an chips...scuse me laugh.gif
Heather
Catherine, these are cubicles that do Passport pictures.

Over here it is only the first application for a Passport that has to be signed by Doctor, Lawyer, Priest or Civil Servant etc.. Renewal Passports do not need any signature. As a Civil Servant I have signed a few myself, not my own of course. laugh.gif
Gemini
Heather when my brother was here in March he was saying that not only did he get finger printed, but was also eye scanned, that was a first for that I was really surprised, as was my daughter who works for homeland security so be prepared make them eyes look luverly laugh.gif
Heather
Gemini, I was told about that by one of our Priests who was over in the States in February.

See, they don't even trust Priests.


I'll just flutter my eyes at them. rolleyes.gif
