Cripes ah'll be gettin the phone call the day fae home, and it'll be ma AIN Lauren's results ah'll get, keep ye's posted.
Also the family werr doon in London ower the weekend there, ma wee cousin goat married so cannae wait fur the gen oan that either. Ah think they arrive back this afternoon, then they're aw jettin off again tae Portugal the morra...but that's awright ah don't mind missin oot...nae bother naw really!!!

Anyway, need tae gie ye's a laugh.
Last night ah wis daen the crafts wae the weans, Jake said ahd like tae huv a garden party mum canna?
Ah said that'd be lovely pet...who ye invitin blah blah..

Goat up this mornin {oh aye furgoat tae tell ye's a put the wrang colour oan ma herr last night and ahd tae go oot annaw.. walkin aboot like a letter boax wae legs}
Anyway...so ma furst thoat as ah opent the eyes this mornin wis cripes ma herr...little did ah no mair wis tae follow!

Jake's aw excited, 'Okay mum,so ah put ma invites oot when ye werr oot last night, so ma garden party's at 11 an such an such is comin an kin ye set up ma music for me, get the food oot an the things ye need fur a garden party please an thankyou an ahm aw excitit...
Ah jist burst oot the laughin..WHIT DAE YE DAE?????

So....seven oot the back the noo, ahd tae drag the table aff the deck an pit it in the gerden cos it's in the shade therr, they're swingin aff the tree hoose, musics blerin, inside the hoose looks like a hurricane's went through it....but the boys are THRILLED.
Ahv a feelin the bar's gaunni be opent early the day!
wee mags
a hiv a good wan my son John was 10 at the time and he said when he came in from school"oh by the way Ma, Iam having aprty the morra night" yae cannae John I have to get stuff "dont worry Ma I gave ma pals a list of what tae bring" well the nday the boys start coming an
the mothers say thats nice of you to have this party for the boys,and each mom gave me whatever was on the list that John had given their son ,I apoligised and said Iam sorry he done this on his own,one mother laugh hysterical another said Hey John am hiring you the next time a hiv a party, even now when I meet the Mothers thats one of our "Remember when stories" biggrin.gif
also congrats to Lauren nice job
Catherine
Here ah like Johns thinkin mags , ah'll be passin that wan oan tae these two afore ony future plans they're thinkin of come up laugh.gif

Ye'll no balieve it, wis jist talkin to Joanne therr an mums broke her haun noo, fell ower fresh air two hoors after arrivin fur the weddin weekend in London ...goat the cast up tae her elbow noo.
Ahm jist away tae phone the patient hersel an get the latest update.
Honest tae God ma mums turnin oot like calamity Jane, a few year ago she'd broke her arm when she slipped oan the sterrs, goat a cast oan that an three week later tripped ower a bag lyin an broke the ither wan. So she'd the two arms cast at the same time.
Here's hopin she's no gaun fur a double act this time!

On the bright side, ma neice goat her two A's she wis hopin for, French an Business Management, she's been accepted intae Glasgow Uni {wis conditional she upped they two grades an now she has} but ah think she's optin fur Strathclyde as the programme she's gaun in tae gives mare leeway fur branchin if she chooses to.
Ma Nephew goat four 1s an two 2s in his O'levels, an husnae a clue whit he's gaunni do in his Fifth year an he's draap dead gorgeous annaw ...so life's pretty good fur aw the 'weans' the day oan this page sure it is Angela.

Wee Mags, I thought your John's party idea was hysterical and brilliant. laugh.gif

Well done to all with their exam results.

I well remember the tension when my son was opening his exam results. My heart was going ten to a dozen, the next thing we were hugging and jumping about.
wee mags
heres another John story I had been in the hspital having my gallblader removed, he was doing his own home work and Mike being the dad never checked it ,so Iam home recovering and say John wheres your home work ' dont worry Ma the teacher said since you are sick I can have time off to help you , the wee bell goes aff in ma heid!!!
so when I was a bit better the teacher asks me to come in to see her, so aff I go ,Goodmorning Mrs Amato Iam sorry to have to tell you that John has not done any work ,and when I checked his spelling test he showed me work done ten weeks ago "What do you mean"? well when I checked his spelling test he has been showing me the same spelling test !!!!!!!!! "so what are you going to do about this ?took a look and theres John about to pass over for he knows am gonnae lecture him ,then I thought what kind of teacher is she not to have checked his spelling properly,"So I said you tell me what Sister Rose does to you for allowing it " then I will deal with John.next day I get a call "Mrs Amato I would like to seee you " it was the headmistress off again ready totface sister Rose she said the teacher was at fault for allowing it to go too far ,
the look on Johns face was worth awe the tea in China , and she sent John off to his class,and she said to me Margaret hes going places that boy "yer right tae jail if he keeps this up" oh no she says for I done the same thing only I was in College ach well thats ma John a jist love him, but dont let him know for he will say see you Ma!!!!! biggrin.gif

Hi Melody,
I live in Kelowna B>C> Canada, my youngest Son right now is teaching in Tiwain, [English] he loves it there has been there 3 years but will be home at Christmas all going well, they are paid in U>S> $$ earn good money,
He went there because he could not get a job here but hopefully will be able to next year ,
The nights here are beginning to draw in [as they say in Dear old Scotland,] dark by 9pm[ sign summer is coming to and end now,] ]that is one of the things I miss about Scotland, the lovely long summer evenings and the Sunsets, I remember as a young girl playing out till 10 10.30pm and it was still light but at least we do have the day light savings time, as in AUstralia it gets dark by 7 .730pm. but being so hot there they are glad to see the sun go down I am sure, enjoy the rest of your holiday Meldoy tongue.gif
annie laurie
Hello Betty,

One of my Mum's Sisters married a guy by the name of Hutton, cant remember his first name though, her maiden name was Brawley, long time ago, both are deceased now, Hutton is not a very common name really is it?????????who knows maybe you are related way way back Betty tongue.gif
betty2
Annie the Hiuton's I am related to originally came from Govan , my father and his brother were brought to the easend of glasgow after the death of their mother. There are quite a few families in the eastend by the same name but no relation to me. Would be interesting to know where you're aunt's husband came from.

Aye the nights are starting to draw in here

Betty, I was strolling (nice word) through this post and I think we need one of your great poems. Today, Sunday, is the first good day we have had in weeks. Seems that come suppertime the skies darken, the thunder rolls, and we get downpours. My daughter tells me that Connecticut longs for rain. Can't win.
