annie laurie
Yes but just in Scotland, not England,
Angela Chick
Hi girls,

oh am so shattered, left the house at 8 this morning to go with me other half to bolton to pick up something related to his work then we had to go to liverpool to drop something off then back all the way to glasgow, i would have enjoyed it but it was a 17 ton truck he was driving and i was a bag of nerves, all those massive trucks on the motorway, but he got me home in one piece biggrin.gif
annie laurie
Hi Angela,
I know what you mean about the Motorways and Trucks, I was a basket case travelling on them 5 years, ago, so I can imagine it is twice as bad now,
One thing for sure you will sleep well to-night, that was some going all in one day,
I bet he is a good driver, though ? sometimes i think driving is easier than being a passenger, I would rather drive myself, because you are more focused on the traffice in front and behind, you don't see all these crazy drivers who jump in and out all of the lanes all the time unless of course they are in front of you, laugh.gif Cheers
tammy
I found the drivers in Glasgow much better than the ones here in Vancouver! You should sit up front in the ambulance and drive lights and siren and be amazed at what the driver's do or refuse to do..especially in rush hour!!!!! We find it best if we don't roll our windows down when we are making our comments! wink.gif

Angela have a great holiday.

Annie, the sun is back, the little bit of rain was refreshing though! Happy the sun is back, it will be rainy weather soon enough! We'll have a little holiday at the in-laws in 2 weekends.

There you go Betty, I did the stairs and a bit of tidying for you. And left you some cookies for your tea tonight. Hope you won at Bingo!
Angela Chick
Hi annie and tammy,

annie you are so right about being a passenger you notice everything, all the loonys on the roads with no regard for anyone.

mark is a good driver thank god, it was raining hard when we were coming back so a felt even more scared, anyway it was an experiance if nothing else laugh.gif


tammy, some people should not be allowed on the roads, you should have seen some of them last night driving 40 ton trucks and playing silly beggars, it was an eye-opener.
stuarty
when i am driving on the motorway i nearly always drive at night the hgv,s are polite and they give plenty of warning and signals with their lights and indiators were the cars cut me up and less traffic on the road it is mainly lorries and if i overtake te 3lane is nearly always empty as the bigboys are not allowed i would have loved doing their job kings and queens of the roads wink.gif
annie laurie
Stuarty
I can just imagine you Driving A big truck{or as they say in Glesca a BIg Lorrie} biggrin.gif on the Mototorway,
Angela Chick
annie a keep laughing cos you said you were a basket case on the motorways laugh.gif a felt like that last night ma nerves were shot to pieces
tammy
It's my drive night tonight...I can hardly wait. rolleyes.gif

Angela how many more sleeps until your holiday now?
annie laurie
Angela,
My son told his Dad you should have put a brown bag over her heid, biggrin.gif
You see Angela our Town is only 150.000 people, but in the summertime the population doubles, as this is a holiday resort Town, we are surroouded my Lake,
Tammy Wayne Gretzky is in town to-night for the
[training camp for Team Canada}
For all the people in Glasgow Wayne Gretzky is a professional Hockey Player from Edmondton, but is now married to a American Gal and lives in the U>S>A>
Sammy how you daen,? did you have a good night out, Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!
tammy
Annie,

Go get his autograph! I got JOVO's for Brittany for her 15th birthday. Saw him while I was working. I only did it for her because he is her favorite player! I have spoken with Mark Crawford and have seen Matt Cooke while working also, but there was no way I was going to ask another player for their autograph again! I was so embarrassed the first time. But, she loves it, it's framed above her bed. It says "Happy 15th Birthday Brittany, love Ed Jovanoski with his #." Hard to believe that was 2 years ago already! wub.gif

So, who's all have a drink in Betty wee house tonight?
Tori G
Hi Tammy, Angela, Annie, Stuarty, how you all goin, just reading all the posts about driving, we've got maniacs on our roads too. I used to drive a bus, yep little ole me driving buses, loved it when I was in a mining town yet hated it in the city never again too many maniacs and I mostly drove miners and school kids to and from work, n ,school. when driving the kids people seem dart out in front of you not worrying about the passengers so I quit as nearly had a few miss-haps with idiots,grrrr. I sympathise with you Tammy and Mark and you too Stuarty, Annie, on the motorways am considerate when it comes to Ambulances and Trucks, and everyone else for that matter. Well Angela have a great time on your holiday, hopefully I'll be on G.G b4 you take off so we all can have a natter, I might try tomorrow night. Stay safe everyone. wub.gif
Angela Chick
Hi girls,

tammy 2 more sleeps then i am of biggrin.gif

annie that was funny about the bag thing with your boy,


well am afraid to say a cant drive but a have always wanted to learn, but a felt it was to late for me cos am gonna be 40 this year, mark keeps telling me to take lessons so after a come back from turkey am gonna start, he gave me a wee shot of his car a few weeks ago and i did quite well a loved it.


victoria driving buses that is so cool.
annie laurie
Angela,

You are still a young Lady my goodness your life is just beginning,
As for Driving, go for it, you can do it, laugh.gif also it is a great confidence builder I would say, and you have your indepence also, free to go when and where you want, no hanging around waiting on someone to come and pick you up,
I would suggest lots of practice in the shopping parking lots first also try and take a few Private lessons it really does help, i know they are expensive but it is money well spent,
Two more sleeps,.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>:-))
stuarty
driving is tee best thing i ever did it gave me so much freedom and i drive to dumfries every year in october and the trees are all russet red brown etc its so great an old neighbour of min was sixty when she passed mind you it was automatic as her instructor advised her to do that as it was easyer enjoy angela you go girl wink.gif
annie laurie
I agree Driving Automatic, is a lot easier,
and a lot less strenuous on the knees & Back, on long trips, also,
marina
my husband drives to london every monday and back again on a friday if its not london its usually somewhere in england or as far as jersey or gernsey, i used to love going with him before we had the kids, but with school and work now i dont get the chance
annie laurie
Hi Marina,
Nice to see you posting, hope you are coping O>K> I am sure it must make the weeks pass by quickly waiting for the week-ends,[does that make sense, know what i mean ] for your Husband to come home
I understand the long Distance Truck Drivers in the U>K> only get once chance to pass their Driving Test as they are very strict so he must be a very good Driver himself,
Angela Chick
Hi girls,

Annie am gonna go for it am determined to do it, as you say it gives you a lot of freedom.


Stuarty i admire you driving on the motorways your some girl biggrin.gif

Hi marina

Tori G
You told him Stuarty!! Angela take every opportunity to drive that comes your way b4 you go for your licence, i'm sure Mark will let you drive more, and as Annie said go into the shopping centre carparks when theyre empty to practice, driving,.. parking,.. wheelies, broggies no just kidding,.. ha ha, actually I can see you doing that too ha ha. Before I got my licence I took lots of lessons so that i'd feel safe enough, and b4 starting on the buses, just call me blakey, on second thought never mind, well anyway I actually got paid to learn to drive the bus, that was so great as I was also working in another job at the time too,..(money money money) any way what im trying to say issss goooo foriiiit girl biggrin.gif ps One more sleep!!!! does it sort of feel like christmas, ha ha.

Hello Betty,

I've put the wahing out, the curtains are all clean and the stairs have been done. I've put the kettle on for a cup of tea with you. Has anybody seen Catherine, it's awfully quiet without her? I'll just wait for the kettle to boil now. smile.gif
annie laurie
Hi Tammy,
You are a good wee worker, your kettle will boil try hen, waiting on Catherine, biggrin.gif Catherine is away on holiday I think she will be back next week sometime so enjoy your Tea with Betty, Cheers!!!!

Glad you have the kettle on Tammy, I'll stop in and have a cup with you if you don't mind. Is Betty off to the barn on her moterbike again? I can never catch her at home. Won't she be pleaed when she sees how you have everything sparkling. Too bad Annie Laurie didn't stop in, I would have liked the chance to chat with her too, I need to catch up on all that's been going on while I've not been around. That's a good cup of tea you've made, now what we need is a teacup reader. I wonder if any of our GG gals read cups, mabe if we wait a wee while some will come in who does.
Tori G

Good to have a cuppa and a natter to you, I'd like to read your tea cup though wouldnae no how quite facinating that someone could do that, ive read some books on the subject too to shy to or scared to try just in case all goes wrong ha ha and im glad im no Victoria Beckham it might be all googldy gock, a suppose i could join the dots ha ha, oh just kidding really, couldnt help ma self wi that one he he.
