forgive me..........

Where to the days go, was the weekend shorter than normal. Its a sign of old age when time flies. I am sure there are still notes on my desk from January!
I had an unexpected trip to Glasgow on Friday night, when I arrive I opened the car door to the sound of music, not the hills are alive type, more the take that mega hen night hoolie. I know a lot of folks who went down to the most talked about concert around, but I also heard some really bad stories of ladies ( I use that term as loosly as it can be ) who should have known better. But in their world they had fun, a sight for sore eyes for those who had to watch with wonder as to how grown women could behave so badly.

Saturday seen me at the Royal Highland Show, I have not been down for a few years as hubby and son usually go Thursday. But as I had the Saturday off we all wend and took Debbie and Tom  out for the day. I did not see half of the show, but my poor legs had had it after 8 hrs of walking. I was pleased to see the major supermarkets where there and had meal deals on offer, I understand that the cost of space at the show is a premium but the prices for hot food was scary when you have to buy 4/6 of them, now there is a choice.
Some amazing artwork/photography and several craft tents, not all stock was hand made but they all were busy and I loved the had made bags and sweetie jewellery (

Home via Aviemore where we had a fantastic and quick served meal at the Cairgorm Hotel at the entrance to the MacDonald resort. I was impressed not only with the staff but the food too, will defiantly go again.

So today finds me in the store, I will have to leave soon to be there in time for opening at 10am. But some of you might have noticed I forgot to draw a winner for the snowman stamp.............
