tammy
Hi Gemini,

I'll have a cuppa with you. I've brought all my leftover chocolates and candies too so everyone help themselves! We had many trick or treater's last night more than last year, so lucky I bought as much as I did. My Brittany dressed up in a scary skelton costume and she posed alongside the garage door and she wouldn't move a muscle and kids were looking at her and were sure she was fake, then after I gave the candies she would jump out or scare them! Sometimes she would drape herself in the back of her Dad's big truck, she really looked good. But, the highlight of the night was one little princess about 5 years gave her a tongue lashing like you wouldn't believe about scaring people, even told her she should be ashamed of herself the little madam! It was priceless! We almost wet ourselves laughing! And all the parents laughed whenever she scared the kids and some even took her photo. She got some of the parents too! That was the best..seh slowly creeped up behind one man and put her arm on his shoulder and he jumped, but then he shook her hand and had a laugh! I guess all her years in drama have paid off. laugh.gif
Heather
Tammy, your halloween night sounded great, with many laughs.

I was out last night and did not get home until after 9'o'clock, by that time all the children would be in bed. There are not a lot of children where I live.

My 7yrs old g'daughter went to her school halloween disco on Friday night dressed as a witch. She had a long black dress and cape and her witch hat had long green hair hanging from it. Her mum made up her face, so she looked really good, but by the time she got home her broomstick was fallen apart. laugh.gif
stuarty
heather a bet she enjoyed every minuite of the night my grandwean lydia thought it was magical and couldnot understand why she was given sweets and things and she said to people im not allowed to have nuts as im allergic to them she will be four on the 20th of this month and Icannot wait smile.gif
tammy
Heather and Stuarty,

i bet the 2 kids had a great time. Staurty, how cute of your little grandaughter to be so matter of fact! We had one in costume that was so tiny, we couldn't believe she was walking and carrying a bag! Honest to god! Phil said he looked out the window and thought a little pile of leaves was moving..it looked like a baby walking and talking! She was darling. Brittany took off her mask when she saw her coming, so as not to scare her. Heather by the state of your grandaughter's broom that is a good indication what kind of fun night and day she had too! wub.gif

tammy
so, I'm not saying any names here, but...I have been finding candy wrappers stuffed down the cushion of the chairs in here! I emptied the trash anc I've washed the floors and wiped up all the sticky finger prints. We can't have Betty surprising us and finding her wee house in such a state! I've got the curtains in the wash now too, can someone hang them back up for me when they're done? smile.gif
keelie gal

jakka13

tammy
oi Keelie, whit you laughing at? Let's see your fingers...are they sticky? I think it's your turn to do the stairs. Thanks Jakka for the curtains, I was tired after all the shopping and cleaning. I would love a nice piece of shortbread with a cup of tea. Yum. tongue.gif

Thanks Tammy, ahd a very bizzarre day, startin aff wae the car accident which ah wis jist sick aboot the whole day....it's bad enough huvin tae claim insurance etc...but then it's the whole disruption ahv now caused ma neighbour.
They cannae be nicer an we aw know accidents happen, but noo they need tae take time oot tae get it fixed etc an she's jist wae her second wean an her first is only three...ah jist feel dead guilty.
Ah spent the whole mornin there up at the Police Accident Report Centre so's the Insurance can get started.

Then ahm ah no up at school collectin them aw at the end of the day, and dae ah no get told a parent is now goin tae be changin sexes which means that the weans 6, 3 an 18months will soon huv two MOTHERS!
How dae ye get yer heid around THAT wan?
Ahm no judgin..ah think God love them what a dilemma and how dae ye even start tae go aboot somethin like that...we're aw God's children and some jist seem tae be born in the wrong body..or somethin.....they're dead nice people as well.

Ahm jist goin aboot a bit shellshocked aw ower the place the noo.
Angela Chick
Catherine, wit a day you have had no wonder you feel shellshocked,

A really feel for that family you are speaking about, as you say people cant help whats in their heart and how they feel, a mean they must be so unhappy in the 1st place to want a sex change,

as you say we cant judge as we dont know what they are going through, god bless them
stuarty
if I was perfect my life would be boring and iv got somany defects of charecter that im thankful for and the person who is in turmoil about their sexuality they must have gone through hell and the wife is in bits but hopefully they can work through it am hoping that the woman doesnt think it was her fault and it is not it is just somthing that happens in london they have shops that the male gender can go and get dressed up as a woman and see if they feel comfortable it is very open and years ago it was all kept in the closet atleast they can be honest insted of a sham relationship my heart goes out to all who shall be affected by this am rambling again but my friend who i have knowen for years that she was gay and i knew but others did not came out because somone else did and i was so please she had the courage to do it and i was privlaged to be there when she said it life is wonderful weird colourful mystical magical and it brings somthing new into my life every new day wub.gif
Catherine
It really is amazin how one's reality is bizzarre to another isn't it guys....and it's true Angela ...who are we tae judge jist because we don't understand.
It really puts a lot of your own 'problems' into perspective.

As for the couple themselves ye don't know do ye...but as far as the view fae here goes they seem to be very accepting of the whole situation and extremely supportive of each other.

I guess they have to switch off from outside influence and do what they feel they have to, but I don't imagine they could be immune to outside reaction entirely, so I'm a bit nervy about sayin the right thing and hope I do it in a way that kin only be positive and helpful to them.

You certainly sound a good support to yer pal Stuarty, it's the way it should be regardless sure it is. Friendships a wonderful thing.

Cripes kin ye imagine betty's face when she gets back oan an see's this discussion goin oan in her hoose laugh.gif
stuarty
no comment a want to see my lawyer ohmy.gif
tammy
Catherine...what a day! Sit yourself down and I'll pour you a wee spash! Never mind the tea and shortbread! That'll never do. Are you alright pal? You didn't get hurt did you. If you start feeling stiff and sore, run a hot bath, and take some ibuprofen for your sore muscles.

As for the other couple, I myself can't wrap my brain around stuff like that. It must be very hard for both involved, never mind the kids. 2 years ago my best friend from forever not only split up with her husband, but now lives with a woman! This is a lassie who was always boy cray and now she's gay. I have a hard time dealing with her new lifestyle, but I try for her sake to understand. I don't want to lose her since we've been friends since babies. She also has a wee daughter. huh.gif
Angela Chick
Tammy a worked with a girl that was gay and she told me that she knew from as early as age 9 or 10 she was different that was here exact words to me,

all you can do as you say is still be a good friend to your mate as you go back a long way biggrin.gif
jakka13
I think you have to accept friends for what lies within their heart and not their sexual orientation,colour or creed. They say god created us all equal and I make my friends from lots of different backgrounds.Ihope I get treated the same way .I try not to judge and keep an open mind .Life is short , grab happiness in any way you can .Why be miserable because of convention.
Catherine , hope you feel a wee bit better tonight . The last thing you needed today was to face this news. I'm sure you'll know the right thing to say when the situation happens .I didn't have the splash last night ,just incase I had to make an emergency run . I didn't .Things have been a bit easier today so we're just taking things one day at a time till we see the specialist . unsure.gif
tammy
Angela, I do try, but some days I can't wrap my head around it. I'm serious she was boy crazy..never without a boyfriend. She said you never know what could happen in the future either, so I don't really get it. Sadly she lost a lot of friends and has now adopted the attitude if you don't like it then get lost which hasn't helped. Because to be honest a lot of her long time friends are confused and you can't just expect them to say oh alright now you like girls. It's very strange. But, I try my best. It hasn't been easy, I'm always worried about what I might say, or if I'll say it the wrong way now. Before I never had that worry.

Anyways, like Catherine said if Betty comes strolling into her house and see where we've all gone with our discussions she might be needing a wee splash herself! laugh.gif I've checked the tin for the shortbread too, are you hiding it Jean?
jakka13
Hi Tammy ,I never got round to makin'any so I went into town and picked up some millionairs shortbread.I'll bring it the next time I'm in
stuarty
hello all cant sleep I droped off for about 2 hours then somthing woke me up dont know what caused it I hat that jaccka13 are you ok as I was wondering if somthing is wrong as we have not had a wee chat for a couple of days wub.gif
keelie gal
welcome back then stu....... laugh.gif
jakka13
Thanks for all the concern ,lassies .I'll get things sorted out in a couple of days .I hope .Don't worry about me I'll be fine .I;m like the unsinkable MOLLY BROWN. Talk to you all later Cheers jakka
Catherine
It's amazin here when ye think of it...therrs you Tammy wae no such a different scenario happenin....though ah have tae point out this is NOT close friends this is happening to.

Ours is jist such a wee community within the City...everyone kinda knows everyone in the playground so tae speak, and I guess after the initial shock it's going to be the ramifications that many will have to deal with.
We will be one of many, and ye jist hope ye come over supportive.

Your pal Tammy sounds scared, defiant and dealing with her own changes, doesn't sound as if she's being very tolerant of others right now but give her time I'd say.
It's a hard call...we often or I do anyway, try an put maself in others shoes before ah make a judgment call....and she sounds as if she's still blown away with her own decision, albeit it seems right for her, and she's trying to justify it to herself still.

I jist cannae imagine no likin me for bein me.....imagine no likin yerself for being you?
Ah mean this is whit makes us whole for US as individuals.
The pain no having this security must cause folk must be horrendous, God help them.

Who's makin the tea by the way, kettles oan tongue.gif Jaaka you better haun oot the millionaires afore a riot brekks oot pet. Wherr did ye leave the bag an ah'll get it..you jist sit therr an get yer feet up hen
Catherine

jakka13
Hi Catherine, your two sound not unlike my youngest two grand sons .I know they are a bit older but one is very serious and the youngest doesn't have a care in the world. My son in law smashed up his knee racing dirt bikes and had a metal brace and crutches , the oldest of the two boys broke his arm falling off a snow board .The break was so high they couldnt cast it . They put a cap on his shoulder and strapped the arm across his chest . They have their own business and my daughter does all the accounting ,ordering payroll etc. She was having a very bad day when the youngest boy comes up from the basement and his backside is wet . His answer on being asked how come your wet was that his brother had been tossing water balloons at him . A couple of hours later my daughter remembers the wet backside and goes down to check things and as she steps off the last step she's in water over her feet . The sump pump had stopped . My son in law can't get down the stairs so he's yelling instructions to her ,she has to push a hose outside and the boy with the broken arm is out in the snow trying to catch the end of the hose and it's bedlam, when she turns around here's James standing with a big bowl of pop corn watching the show laugh.gif
stuarty

stuarty

tammy
Catherine you are a wise and fair woman. My friend has been this way for a few years now. But, I still care for her as I always will ,just hard to understand some days.

As for your little story..now that was funny! What was Geoff's reaction? HA!HA! I agree, your house must be laughs all day long! And Jakka your daughter's house doesn't sound much different! HA!HA!
Stuarty, I hope your wee dug is better soon, my little dog doesn't get affected by the noise.
