    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all ok on this glorious Friday!

    It was a beautiful weather day here yesterday so spent a
    good part of the day out gardening.



    After a foggy start here today .... again - it's turning into
    another brilliant day so will be outside pottering about -
    got to make the most cos apparently the wet stuff will be
    here Sunday'ish!

    Can't believe how mild it is at the mo!

    Wow theluckofthedraw - wonderful news! Please give
    gorgeous little Jenson James a big kiss n' cuddle from
    everyone in the Inn - you must be so proud!



    Hope your flowers are still ok Becks - I can't understand
    either why they weren't just left with one of your neighbours.

    Have a lovely and lucky day all and take care.

    Congratulations on the new arrival! How lovely! No pretty graphics from me, I'm afraid, but warm thoughts.

    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all fine on this beautiful Saturday!

    It's another foggy start here but still very mild and dry -
    another day for gardening me thinks.



    Also got to carry on with comp catch up - I managed to do a
    few yesterday but kept getting distracted!

    Have your decorators finished now fire**fly?





    Have a lovely weekend all and take care.

    I'll have a coffee thanks Alfie.
    A horrid misty morning here and set to stay all day.
    We have decided to give DS3 a run up to Gleneagles today as he has to start back tomorrow at 9am instead of 1pm on Tuesday that he was hoping for. Going to have to try and get him a passport photo on way as our only town printer is out of order. He has damaged his old passport by taking it everywhere for ID so needs a photo to be countersigned for his replacement which is annoying. Why he needs to do everything last minute I don't know. Anyway we are going to stay with DS2 tonight but they are doing a private birthday party in their cafe so won't be early home. He is looking forward to making elaborate food again I think.
    Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

    I have just had a Chinese t/a as well . I had chicken with cashew nuts.
    We are at DS2's house and had to let ourselves in as they are working,
    DS3 got his passport photo at a booth at Co-op this afternoon although it was a lenthy process as he kept laughing at the machines voice and needed to retake it twice!

    Good morning everyone

    Well - so pleased I was out gardening yesterday because
    it's a tad wet today!



    Raining but with bright skies!

    Pleased your DS3 managed to get his passport photo in
    the end sheils - I know what you mean about 'the
    voice'!

    Well done on receiving the Opium sample wingo. I
    also love the smell. I've got a stash of incense
    sticks including Opium which I use regularly in my
    abode.

    All your meals yesterday sound scrumptious.

    Bet you're happy now the decorators have finished
    fire**fly!

    Have a wonderful Sunday all and take care.

    I've been lucky enough to have my washing out today before rain comes. It was wet last night so sons match got called off again.

    Sheils, I did my passport online last year which I found much easier as you can use a pic on your pc or take one as long as there isn't any shadows or anything in the background. We had to do the kids ones through usual route though.
    Glad you all enjoyed your Chinese too!

    I've just renewed my driving licence online as I still had paper one and old address on! All I need to do now is get back behind the wheel!
    Well I was going to run bath for DD2 but gymnastics must have tired her out, she's been fast asleep in bed since 6:30!
    Big thanks to all who contribute to the forums. Be lucky everyone!

    Hi everyone,

    Had a nice stay with DS2 and his gf. Went to Stirling for lunch with them and then came back to a Holiday Inn Express at Strathclyde National Park - not too cheap but should get lots of bonus points as a special points deal. Have had pretty nice weather and fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    Wingo, think you have to be over 26 to do the passport completely online and your old passport can't be damaged either. Good you are thinking of driving again.

    Ready for bed now.

    Good morning everyone

    Hope you're all ok on this beautiful Monday!

    The sun is already shining away here ....



    it's certainly better weather than this time yesterday!

    Although ..... having said that ....



    .... so I hoovered, polished and even ironed and then
    the rain eased off so I could carry on with my gardening!

    Happy days!

    Sounds as if you are having a brilliant time sheils!

    Well must get on, got a fairly busy day lined up. Have a
    lovely and lucky day all and take care.
