I just wanted to wish everyone a "Very Merry Christmas "
i have met some lovely people since joining this blogging thing, something I never thought I'd be doing, so it just goes to show
"you can teach old dogs new tricks"
Glad the little dress arrived Merrie, and more importantly, you liked it!!!
I am really enjoying my new job despite my first misgivings. I went into the shop where I used to work today and I didnt feel like I ought to have not left, so thats good.
We are going to my mums for xmas lunch, Lewis and Lisa are coming up on xmas morning for bacon sandwiches, yummy yummy.
I have had a bad cold for what feels like forever but it seems to have mostly gone now, lots of people have the sniffles right now, got a flu jab so hopefully wont catch that this year.
Guess this will be my last post of 2008, so see you all again next year....

So here we are at draw time and the winner is.......wait for it.....MERRIE !!!! well done it will wing its way to you as soon as you email me your address, send it to me at the address you have for me

As I said earlier, I have a new job. Started this past weekend on my own as the last girl had gone back home to Poland. I was a bit nervous but everything went OK. I had a holiday day to take so that was on Sunday. So as of this weekend I am settled in at the care home. I was sad leaving my old job, had a little cry when they gave me a lovely card and flowers. Then cried all the way home in the car. Had I done the right thing? etc etc, but Im sure i have.

We have had some snow and icy weather here, its really cold today too, its also my sons 26th birthday, I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was snowing then too, I worried Id not get to the hospital. The hospital cleaners were on strike then and there were no clean laundrey stuff, I got out of that hospital faster than lightning.

Have been back up to the hospital with Stewart for more treatment, we go again on Thursday and we have been taking the bus as the parking at the hospital is horrendous, just no spaces at all, and its so worrying in case you miss the appointment, its been giving me a headache, so , hence the bus. Now the bus drivers are striking for more money, there were no busses for 24hrs last Sat and will be none for 48hrs this Fri, but worst of all is they are working to rule so you wont know if your bus is running or not. We will go out and wait for it but may have to take the car and I would just have to sit in it, waiting for a space to come free, while Stewart goes for his appointment, not really ideal. Its giving me a headache just thinking about it.

My mum and stepdad are going on the Orient Express from Edinburgh on Friday, Its an evening outing with your supper on board. They were given it as a xmas gift from his children, they are excited. He has only yesterday broken his reading glasses, and now is in a mad rush to get a new pair in time, hes having an eye test as i write and hopes to have glasses by Thurs. Hed better have, or he wont be able to see the menu !!! They are staying overnight in Edinburgh too, im sure they will have a great time. I hope they remember to take the camera. I think I may text her to remind her.

Guess that the lot for now....later
