Sorry I didn't see you coming in Island Girl .Welcome to the GGboards .lots of good fun and friends and the best place to meet us all is right here in Betty's .Mind you'll have to take your turn o' the stairs and bring goodies once in a while . laugh.gif
islandgirl
smile.gif Hello all: The weather is holding and I am just off to my aquasizes in an open air pool - we do wear toques - so Canadian eh! Jakka I will take my turn on the stairs and general tidy up. Hi Melody and Annie Laurie. Well Boots hope all is well with you today - thank you for getting me started. Boots and I have been friends for over forty years. At one time we shared an apartment in Winnipeg. The groundhog did not see his shadow here today so I guess spring is on its way. Snowdrops and crocus are already out and my daffodils are about 8 inches high (not blooming) The dafs are on top of our septic field so I guess there is lots of nourishment for them. All for now.

Hi, Jakka
I am in stitches here. Yup. I did think of the "brassies" particularly the ones that had the family name on outside the door (now, mind you, there would not have been a lot of sense putting it inside the door biggrin.gif ) OK I have just used up my smilie, but it was worth it. All the family had inside toilets until we (Mum & Dad & I) moved to Riccarton (Ayrshire) and then we shared with two other families in the same close. (Gone now sorry to say, as is my home on the Paisley Rd) That toilet sparkled, each women took it as a challenge to make sure it was spotless and fully supplied, mind you in those days it was mainly newspaper etc. (You have to realise that any kids reading this now are totally grossed out). My Mum dried clothes over the stove on a pulley and one time they caught fire (but that's another story, and thank God, my uncle was in for his dinner from the docks). Ocht, the stories are endless.

I’n’i will see you through,
’cos everyday we pay the price with a little sacrifice,
Jammin’ till the jam is through.

We’re jammin’ -
To think that jammin’ was a thing of the past;
We’re jammin’,
And I hope this jam is gonna last.
cool.gif

Catherine, an Oxy stain remover might work. When my daughter got back from the jungle, her favourite white U of T sweater had mildew stains (things don't actually get dry there because of the humidity and little direct sunlight) and NOTHING would get them out, bleach, hanging outside in the direct sunshine etc. Since it was a special sweater and there wasn't much to lose, I tried the Oxy stuff. Low and behold, it worked. (Boy did I get brownie points on that one!). Good Luck. GB smile.gif
Catherine
Oh thanks pet, ahv got that under the sink somewherr {better get ma ghurka hat oan cos it kin be dodgy doon therr laugh.gif }

Anither thought ah had wis ahm gaunni take it the morra tae ma Dry Cleaner Susan an ask her if she could make it intae a Roman Blind fur ma bedroom, it's the perfect length an width of ma windae anna don't think ye'd notice the 'tingges'. Jist a thoat y'no....ah'll see whit she says the morra.

How ye doin anyway? Nice tae see ye pet.

Thanks Catherine!
tammy
Well ladies, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that my Brittany did indeed get a "princess" dress! I knew she would and she looked beautiful in all of the ones she tried on. She never went for any of the sexy ones, just the big puffy ones with all the sparkles and crinolines. She even picked one out after only a few hours out. She tried on all kinds of pretty pink and blue princess dresses. She chose a lovely blue one covered in sparkles and layers of material and it looks lovely on her! Definitley looks like a princess! She just needs a wee tiara. Catherine maybe you could give her a loan of yours eh? laugh.gif Now, we just need shoes and then book her hair appointment and we'll be set. Am I lucky or what? HA!HA! I think I'll go make myself a nice cup of tea now.
jakka13
lWell done Tammy .you sure deserve a wee cup of tea .I remember when my grand-daughter went shopping for her dress .She's built like a rail and five foot eleven. The princess look just wasn't right .She found a great black and white sort of sheath and looked like a million dollars .I wish I could take Brittany shoe shopping ,that's my favorite thing to do.I'llput the kettle on and make you an Irish coffee .Sound nice ?
wee mags

Melody
Hi pals, Jakka the Christening Piece do you know I don't know if it's still done or not ah'll find out today. It was such a lucky thing to receive. Mags where have you been ah miss ye. Tammy you are the luckiest woman on the planet, I wish my girls had gone for one of those, just once. No chance, not sexy ones though just as simple and plain as could be. I'm sure she'll be just lovely, sounds great. How did you manage to get them to like those fancy dresses? Was it thumbscrews? laugh.gif Catherine ah'd give up on that tablecloth.
Catherine

We went intae a shop in the Broomielaw, ah spied this dress an said therr ye go look no further...she loved it, tried it oan..waanted it...but waanted to go intae the town to see more jist incase.

Seventy three fights later wae her mum, ahm killin masel laughin an waantin tae strangle her at the same time, ma sisters fit tae be tied afore she murders her, then we aw end up huvin the mellee in Frasers an slump back tae the car to go home wae nae dress, everywan growlin.
Passin through the Broomielaw again.....you guessed it....in she went tae jist see an walked oot wae the dress aw smiles!
Gorgeous innit so she wis.
