"Late Birthday Wishes"

Hello and welcome, hope you enjoy your look round my Blog.  If you did and have a few minutes to spare, please leave a comment so I know you called.  That way I can link back to see what you get up to.
Busy day here today, we had the boys unexpectedly.  John Jnr phoned late last night to ask if could take them Audrey was working today.    He was to work from home to be with the boys.  Got a phone call to be at a meeting 10.30    ...   in London.  I sometimes think they forget how far north we actually live!!!
We have had a great day, exhausting but good fun.  John Snr had to have his eyes tested, of course you get these horrible drops in.  I had arranged that I would go with him to drive home.  The boys came with me we did some shopping for T-Shirts and trainers for our house for them.  Met Grandpa then went for a walk across the river Tay along a bridge that parallels the railway.  Great fun and they saw trains.  Very late lunch at the Tearoom where they get exactly what they want. Elaine is great at catering for the boys who are the same ages as her Grandsons.   Robert wanted of all things a "roll with Raspberry Jam"  All fed and watered so back to the Ranch to play till Daddy picked them up.  When daddy drew up the both said "I think we will just stay Granny" however Daddy decided he wanted them home, they are going off somewhere for the day tomorrow.
My card today is for my friend in Northern Ireland I went to school with.  When we were both 9 years old we started at a new school in Belfast on the same day.   Oriel had come in from the country I came over from Scotland.    The teacher sat us together, we have been friends ever since.  Don`t see each other a lot possibly about once maybe twice a year.  Her birthday was today and I forgot.  By the time she gets this card it will possibly be Monday, hence the "Late Birthday Wishes"

  9. Hi Patricia,
    I am one of your followers who doesn't have a blog. Having 8 kids and two jobs as well as volunteering with Brownies, I have very little time to myself so I don't often comment on the blogs I visit. I do love visiting your blog though and come along almost daily to see what you have been up to and creating! Your bags are great. I must have a go sometime - maybe as a fundraiser for my Brownies! Thanks for sharing!
