HI Heather and Angela,

Phil's one Auntie had a pully in her bathrooma nd I was amazed at the amount of things she could get on it! The other Aunt had a dryer, but she got rid of it too. And don't worry Angela my laundry room looks like a chinese laundry most days too because I have to hang everyone's shirts etc. in case I 'ruin' them don't you know! Phil's weight bench makes a good clothes dryer! laugh.gif Now if I could get someone else to figure out the iron!
marina
hi all, i have a pulley and its really handy i keep going to get rid of it and then change my mind, i use my dryer quite a lot more than i should but in the summer i put all my washing on through the night and hang it all out before i go to work
severena
Thanks, Tammy and Angela for the welcome back,and congrats., I wish I had a pulley in my washroom, to hang cardigans and stuff one can't put in the dryer. The one thing I use a lot of here is my outside clothesline. It is just at my back door,and I use it mostly year round. Bed sheets smell like heaven when freshly laundered on the clothesline. But the old dryer gets used when jack frost is really bitter. tongue.gif
Catherine
Yo Rena ah keep missin ye!
Lovely tae see ye back, ah widnae bother tryin tae read through posts ye'v missed, cripes ah miss three days and cannae catch up so you've nae chance laugh.gif

Heather
Wee Mags, Sarah is certainly holding on to her baby.
I remember years ago some woman were given Castor Oil when they went past their EDD.

I certainly did not need it, as my son was born on the 19th Nov. three days before he was due on the 22nd November.
On the 16th Nov. I was told by a Doctor in the Hospital I must have got my dates wrong, and the baby would not be born until nearer the end of November. wub.gif

Stuarty, got your emails and pms . I could only see one picture in the gallery of Angela ,what lovely blue eyes she has . This feast at Betty's sounds great . I have had a week from hell . Still fighting the phone company . I think they thought they were dealing with a doddery old wumin. Well I marked the guys card today and told Him in no uncertain terms that I didn't have rocks for brains and I wasn't stupid and I was quite prepared to go to court and any more nonsense from them and I would be in touch with my lawyer.That shut them up . So it's Friday I'm going to pour myself a drink and a party at Betty's sounds great.Cheers jakka

Melody
Went to the theatre the other night and saw a play called ' Half Life' by Canadian writer and playwright John Mighton. It was absolutely excellent, very clever, the cast were a Canadian company called Necessary Angel Company. I wondered if any of you fine folks living in Canada were familiar with John Mighton's work. Carmella you'd be jealous went to the Corinthian for dinner.
Catherine

tammy
Hi all, I had to lie down when I read I was a granny! I thought..wait a wee minute..I better not be! The I had a glass of red wine to calm my nerves and befoer you know it I was asleep on teh couch here. The shock of news like that is enough to give you the gray hairs of a granny! I had to check in the mirror to be sure! A little tightness in my chest, but I think I'm ok now. HA!HA!

Where are you Betty? I've put the kettle on if anyone's needing a brew? And I've got some lovely chocolate biscuits to go with it.

I know how you feel..sort of Catherine..I've had a cold the past few days and it's no fun. I'm better at being the dr. than I am the patient. I don't like getting sick, it doesn't happen very often. I thought I was immune to everything since I'm always around sickies. Mind you..I don't have little boys to chase after, so maybe not quite the same. laugh.gif
boots
Wow Stuarty, that was quite the spread and I'm stuffed. Thank you! Catherine luv, I'm really sorry you have a cold but please don't come to close and pass it on to me. Melody, the name John Mighton is vaguely familiar but I can't think from where. I don't recognise the name of the play at all. Anniel., I'll have another cuppa tea if you're pouring there...Thank you. Okay Tammy,, as you know, I'm the one who made you a granny and I've been trying to figure out who I meant. I even enlisted Catherine to help me but with the boys and her all hving colds, her problem was bigger than mine. I have however, figured it out. You went out of town to see your sister who just had a baby...I think? and I should have called you Auntie. I am very, very sorry. Now I think I'll get started on the dishes.
stuarty
i have just popped in to clean up fae the food party no much left tae clean up still dont want mice noo dae we the kettles on noo wink.gif
