My Week

First of all I want to say 'hi' and 'welcome' to the bloggers who came to visit through Grow Your Blog. It is lovely to meet new bloggers. 
 
 My last couple of weeks have been kind of busy. 
On the 16 Jan our youngest daughter (Emma) turned 19.  Now how did that happen, where did those years go? The last time I looked she was only 10, lol.
  She has grown up to be a lovely young lady and a great daughter.  
Just at the moment she is looking through our holiday album and saying things like "you look so pretty in this picture"  and "you and dad are so cute".  Now I ask you who couldn't love a daughter like that? :))

Anyway she wanted to go out for breakfast to a local restuarant called Scotts which sits down by the marina in out town.  
It has a great view looking over at all the lovely boats. We had a very tasty breakfast, I had pancakes, maple syrup and bacon, yum yum.  Emma had French toast, bacon and maple syrup and Karen had a roll and sausage and bacon.  They both assured me that they really enjoyed them and we left feeling very stuffed!!

I just had to take a picture before we left.  I just love the wee red boat against the timber sitting in the background.


On Thursday of this week my sister and I went to the local golf driving range.  I don't play golf but my sister has been for some lessons and has had a wee shot on the golf course.  
I have to say I am not terribly good at it,  I did miss a few and they didn't go very far when I did hit them. It was fun though, in fact we plan on doing it again next week. Who knows I might just be a master golfer when I'm finished, lol. 
After that we went for a coffee just the finish the morning of nicely.

Then on Friday I met my friend and we went for a wee blether (chat) and yet another coffee.  Definitely a much better way to spend the morning than doing housework - I think you will agree!

The weather here hasn't really improved yet, still lots of rain, wind and grey skies.
  Tomorrow it is supposed to be a bit drier so hopefully I will get out for a walk and some fresh air. 

Have a great week everybody :))

housework - especially cleaning - can always wait for another day. :)

Rain is always better then snow for travel, but I prefer a fresh blanket of the white stuff over rain!!

A beautiful image!! Have a happy Sunday Ellie!!

Hello to you in Scotland! That looks like a wonderful place to have breakfast. I have an 11 year old daughter who talks like that now. I hope she still loves us as much when she's 19!

Its so satisfying when our children grow up to become caring and sensitive adults. You've done well with yours. Sounds like a nice week you had...friends and outings are so much nicer than housework.

I hope Emma had a great birthday! Sounds like you had a good time.

I have never played real golf...am afraid I would find it addicting as you could always go and try to improve! Then again, I might play so bad I would be too embarrassed to go back.

Sounds like you have been busy, but it is a fun busy. Happy birthday to Emma. Our children have a way of growing up way to fast.

I'm not much of a golfer. I yell "FOUR" before I swing so as to warn those unsuspecting golfers of an upcoming wild ball. :)
