That another weekend flown past. Was a good one though. I was working Sat, very hectic day, then the Smiths and Granda and Grandma came up past after supper time to visit. Was fine to see them, had a cup of tea and a good chat and they left about Just watched a bit of TV after that and watched the GP qualifying from earlier in the day and did my cross stitch. Rich did a bit of study. Sunday was busy as usual. Since it was harvest the band was playing 9.30 and 11am services. It was the China GP this weekend, so that meant an early start, the alarm went off at 6am so we could watch it. Was a wet race, so the lead changed hands a lot of tims and ther was plenty of drama! After that it was time to get up for Church. I just went to the 9.30. Afterwards I asked mum and dad and Phil if thy would like to come for lunch. They were happy to, so decidied to make soup (yeterday was a very wet horrible day), except I did't have veg. Mum went and got carrots and cream cheese from her house as I had a onion, then we went back up the road. She also suppplied bread mix to I could put a loaf on. When the time came to chop the onion, it seemed I didnt have one after all, I walked to the shops to get and got totally soaked. Mum asked me to get more carrots but I forgot, my memory sucks.

Eventually the soup was made and the bread was baked and we had soup and some rice pudding also for pudding (also suppplied by mum).

In the evening me and Rich had a curry from the nazma in Inverurie, it was real fine, and today we were both off so went into Aberdeen so I could get my outfit for Claire's wedding and Rich could get his kilt ordered too. The first outfit I tried on was the one I went with, bit still looked around the shops a bit more before I went and got it. Rich is wearing a border grey tartan - looks a bit different but really nice.

Raining here again today, so now home with the heating on and not planning going out again today. Back to work tomorrow, but dog sitting this weekend, so very much looking forward to that!! Anyway, had a good week and will update again soon x

Hi. That is half the week over already! It is flying past. Had a very busy day at work yesterday, then had the season finale of lost, was good but still need answers!

Had a day off today since I am working this saturday. Was quite quiet just tidying around the house then Nick and Erin came for tea. Erin is eating solid food now, so we had mince and tatties. Went down well with everyone I think. We then went for a walk down to see mum, and Erin fell asleep the whole time we were there!

Anyway, that is the update for just now, will be in touch at the end of the week x

Hi there

Had a good weekend, nice pottering day on Saturday. Got a few jobs done round the house, went to a concert in the evening whci was very good.

Sunday I was working for an hour and then some of Rich's family came across. Was a lovely afternoon with Evelyn Grandma and Rach, then Russ and Mike joined us and we had dinner. 7 - the most we have had around the dinner table. Everyone seemed to enjoy their supper which was good.

I did some cross stich in the evening and relazed and Rich did some study.

Today was fine, quite busy. Spoke to Emma this evening for the first time in ages, was really good to catch up, then went for a walk since it was such a nice evening, very mild. Now off for a bath and an early night in preparation for the lost season finale tomorrow night!!

Later x

The Friday feeling!

Friday is great when you are not working the next day! Looking forward to a relaxing day off tomorrow after a busy week. Pouring with rain tonight, but hoping for another fine day tomorrow.

Claire and Stevens wedding is now less than a month away! Everyone seems to be organized with outfits apart from me, have been looking on the net tonight, will have to hit the shops sometime soon I think.

Going to see a welsh male voice choir tomorrow evening, not really our cup of tea but still think it should be good. Looking forward to it.

Anyway, that sounds like Rich is home from the practice so better go. Speak to you soon x

Overdue update due to request from little sister.

I was working Saturday, had a lovely day Sunday. Church, the coffee and a bagel, then gaden work for the rest of the afternoon. Ver warm day. Was lovely.

Monday Richard was away over night with his work. Had my first night alone at home since we got married, survived though. Phil kept me company!

Tuesday was another normal day, went over to Inverurie in the evening to see Claire in her wedding dress, she looked lovely. Now only 1 month to go! Rich got home safe, it was a bit of a wash out though, poured with rain so did not get to do the quad biking or anything.

Today was again pretty normal. Delivered phil his prison break dvds that we got for him then came home. Was a lovely evening for a walk. Then got some sad news, you just never know what is round the corner! Speak again soon x

We have both had a good enough day today. Usual mad dash Friday, I got home from work at 7pm and Rich left for the practice at 7.30pm, managed to have supper together in between though.

Good to see some coments, thanks for that. 11pm is a late night for me Linda, so no more light weight comments from you please, need to be fresh for the following days work! the average body needs 8 hours sleep to function porperly, and I would say I am pretty average.

I met Skye today, this is the dog that Rich and I are going to be looking after the first weeekend in October, she was lovely. Very kind temprament and very docile. Looking forward to having her stay while her owners are at a wedding.

Away to look for a good photo print to get for Rich's Christmas, looking for a good F1 action shot to get for the study. He does know about it as I have having such a hard time deciding he is looking too. You can get lost for hours!

Anyway, hoping to update again tomorrow

Good evening. We thought it was about time we got a hang of this blogging. Linda has been at it for the past3 years, and even dad seems to have posted for the last 3 consecutive days (pretty good, thought provoking stuff)! There is not nearly as much going on with us as with the two above bloggers, but we do have the odd thought that may be worth posting - no comments dad please!

Having a usual week so far, our routine has totally changed since moving house nearly 3 months ago, now much more active in the evenings. This evening was spent helping Rich's mum and dad do a few jobs at their house. Have been out walking the first 3 evenings this week, but very heavy rain today so not walking weather.

Revived my aspiration for the future today - I am hoping to invent the 140ml bottle of penicillin and flucloxacillin 125/5ml and 250/5ml, they currently only come in 100ml bottles, yet the dosage is usually 5ml four times a day for a week, therefore I have to make up two 100ml bottles (by reconstituting a powder with water) then measure out 140ml. So in the space of 10 minutes today I had to make up 6 bottles of antibiotics, nae great!

Our profile is looking quite bare at the moment, but we are hoping to build it up over the next few days.

Nearly bed time, will hope to update again tomorrow
