edinburgh 1

Just a small note to thank Louise and Denise for a lovely time in Edinburgh on Saturday. During a wide ranging conversation we covered life, love, marrage, the future and who we were in relation to who we had been.

As the Festival is one we managed to see some weird things such as the man standing on his head in a bucket (Good work if you can get it.)

ALso the men singing the song about Al Quaeda deserve a special mention.

All in all, a lovely few hours were spent in the company of friends.

thank you both

shopping 2

so I didn’t get a phone, but on the plus side I did get the items on the original list, pillows and a douvet.

Unfortunately The douvet was to large. (Bigger than the advertised size.)

ANd the sell pillows seperately. instead of buying 4 I came home with 2. (What a strange world we live in. I always thought/had previously bought pillows in sets of 2.)

anyway just to let you know

so today I went shopping

I had a list to go with but the choice was rather large.

rather than make the decision I decided to go shopping for a new mobile phone instead. (as obviously that would be easier.

No one stock’s the phone I want. I went round four shops in glasgoiw and couldn’t find it. Anyway I then started doing my sums. It turns out my mobile phone bil currently is £300 per year.


I didn’t think it was that high.

tomorrow I start looking more seriously for a cheaper phone deal.

by the way yes i did get what I set out for. But my Wife hasn’t seen it yet so it could be wrong!!
