jakka13
Maybe quiet for some of you but I just don't have enough hours in ma days jist noo.
I got a break from trying to get the printer running so got some other stuff done .
I bought bed risers for my spare room bed .(I've put them on my bed and love them ) .Well once you raise the bed up the skirt is to short and the headboard to low .I ran out to the DIY store and bought bits of wood and nuts and bolts and got a couple of holes drilled in the wood .Got it all together and sorted .Then I made a deeper skirt to hide all the stuff I can now store under this bed .
Pulled open my bedroom curtains ,(it was a lovely day and I wanted the nice breeze to blow through .The plug fell out the ceiling and the curtains and rod hit the floor .I had Gorilla glue so got busy with that .Worked good ,curtains back up .By this time it was time to make dinner .I've just finished cleaning up the kitchen and I'm having a wee half hour to myself before I start stitching again .I wonder how I ever managed to go to work eight hours a day ?
Promise I'll make Caramel Apple Blossoms tomorrow .
I'm away to stitch my Highland Cows .
wee mags

First I want to thabnk all well wishers , for Lee. We had a great night was quite emotional but ah wis as prood as punch when he went forward for his award biggrin.gif After the ceremony we went to "China Blue" in renfield st for a meal, excellent food and the sevice was exceptional. At the end of the meal the fortune cookies were brought, and mines read "this is a new start for you" at my age huvin a new start well?????????

Family stuff kept me from gettin on the board , it been a hectic time in that direction. Bit of a turmoil and upset , unfortunately on friday it was the court appearance of the boy who was driving the car in which my g/daughter was killed. This has now been set for trial next may. So there were mixed emotions going around this weekend. Thanks again one and all for youre kind wishes

I leave for Ireland next thursday the 8th
wee mags
and heres me thinking your off tae Ireland, I hope you get some peace this week betty
betty2
Need it mags , its been a bit of a strain, had to keep up for Lee,s day , but the other was a dark shadow hangin over us
betty2
Have to tell this story. At the award ceremony on friday night , there was an award given to a lady, before she went forward to recieve it , we {the audience] were in formed that she was a single parent who had cared for her disabled husband till his untimely death, she then applied to several colleges and was turned down by them , cardonald college gave her the chance then saw her potential and forwarded her to higher levels all of which she achieved, he then went on to say before giving her name that she was blind, well the place erupted in applause , and there were many who were dabbing their eyes at this woman who I would say was in her early thirties, she herself was so overcome by the ovation she was seen also to wipe tears away. I thought this was worth mentioning because against all odds this young woman to me was the star of the night. WELL DONE. Her subject was in social caring, but at a very high level
jakka13
The strength and courage of ordinary people never ceases to amaze me .
Thought about you and the court case .Hope it wasn't too bad .Terrible time for you Betty .It was good that you had the graduation to look forward to .Hope you have a good wee break in Ireland .I'd love to go there one day .My Dad's mother was Irish .
betty2
Hi jakka was a mixed weekend but we got through it, gonny toddle off tae bed now an try an get some sleep tongue.gif
keelie gal
Betty glad you had a great time at Lee's graduation ,and sorry to hear the trial has been put back ,have a good time in Ireland betty it will be a good wee break for you wub.gif
Gemini
I dont know if ah'll ever get caught up on all the posts ah missed, so ah'll jist wing here, Congratulations Betty on Lee's graduation, ah'll bet he's glad its over, and who is it in Ireland you go to see, I know I saw somewhere you said something abot family, Jakka I read your post and oh my gosh what a busy busy lady you are, but you gotta hand it to ye that whit keeps you gawn. Well Wednesday I take off for D.C., have to dogsit THREE dogs, as my daughter has to go out of town and couldnt get anyone so Mum to the rescue again, but thats ok thats what keeps me going. Chilly weather finally arrived, so I finally had to put the heat on, broke my heart to do it as the price of oil is sky high right now, but then it always goes up this time of year, but this is the highest its been yet, so I guess the woodburning stove will be used a lot more now.

Hi All,

Just getting back, I have been away for a few days, my monitor has been acting up so it's been a problem. It still is but a new one is on the way. Hopefully.

Betty, Congrats. to Lee and YOU, he is a shining example of what a good parent can accomplish. And what a good kid can accomplish wink.gif The lady you spoke about is to be much admired . Thank goodness someone recognised her worth. She deserves the best.

It is heart-rending that the court case came up so close. It takes a class act, that would be you hen, to deal with two events at the oppisite ends of the emotional spectrum. My heart aches for your loss but you "soldiered on" and are an example to all of us.

Betty it is a pleasure to have met you on the boards. I am not, by nature, a "gushy" person, OK name a Glesga person that is?, but I do feel that you are one in a million hen. Hope you enjoy Ireland.


P.S. Check out www.scotdisc.co.uk, new CD from the Clyde Valley Stompers.
