george foreman

just a quick one, how good are GEORGE FOREMAN grills, after having no oven now for quite a few months about 4, i have been quite adventerous, this evening i put oven chips on george and they came out top! might have to give him a call!


portugal was super weather was lovely and warm a few mishaps, when we arrived at the hotel, they didnt have our reservation and on the second day the ceiling came down in the bathroom on my friend karens head (it sounds alot worse than it was, it was a panel, but it did klonk her one) she was putting her towel over the shower curtain pole to dry and she knocked the panel down, i was through in the room with my other friend eva we just heard an almighty bang and a 'AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGHHH' i thought she had fell in the bath, she was just stood there trying to hold the ceiling panel up, i ran back through and phoned reception, that was a laugh trying to explain to the receptionist that the ceiling had fell down, all i got was 'pardon, the ceiling it fall down' at this point i was laughing alot also which made it harder to understand me, ha ha!! karens head was fine though we had to move rooms to a horrible damp smelling one, alas it was only for one night. the weather was good had a few drinks,food would've been fantastic if i ate meat or fish, the vegetarian tomato pasta was cooked in fish sauce, uuuuurrrgggghhhh!!!!! and some lovely buildings too(would be nice to buy one and open a wine bar, have to win the lottery first!)


well i cant believe ive not wrote on my blog for this long, devon was lovely, weather was gorgeous, me and john where swimming in the sea at 7pm (its not normaly that warm in britain at all)
dad got john drunk on cider(although he wasnt forced) he was flat out for 7 hours and missed his pizza, woke up at 2am and didnt know where he was, ha ha very amusing!!!
found this top pub a little hippy place called The Pigs Nose with random baskets of wool so you can knit a line or two and a cozy log fire, food was great and the cider was lovely.
went on a steam train and visited a butterfly farm, john and dad played golf a few times and me and mum went shopping.
there was no cheese and onion fair, most dissapointed as myself and mum went looking for it, we finally found a tourist information place and we were told it didnt take off, was quite looking foward to it as it sounded so bizzar!

off to devon on saturday with my parents and my boyfriend john, really looking foward to it, as i live 500miles away from my parents and it'll be nice to spend some time with them.
john will be going off playing golf with my dad and me and mum will be off doing various things, 'a cheese and onion fair' being one of them!!!!!!! i really dont know what that is all about, but i do like cheese, so i hope there is actually cheese there, or i will be most upset!!!!(will put photos up when we return!)
where also going on a steam train, i love steam trains(reminds me of my grandad, who was a bit of a train fanatic) and going shopping and eating good food(i love food) not that fussed about shopping but can easily spend a few pennies!!!!
then when return im off to portugal two weeks later with two of my friends, wah-hoo!!!!

Hooray i did it! my blog will be more interesting now with pictures!!!!


loch brora

loch Brora

well loch brora is now one of my favourite places, the only sounds you here are the occasional gust of wind or the cows eating grass!! its a really peaceful place, i often cycle out there(cycle as i dont drive) even if i could drive i'd still bike it!! its about 5miles to get there from my house, so i always take something to eat and drink(a wee picnic) with me and a good book, sometimes i even spot a few wild deer which is lovely. or just sit there and put the world to right!!! will put some more pictures up when i work out how too!


well blogging, still not finding this very easy to do!! i have no patience!!!!!!! well i must go and have a look at other peoples blog pages and see if i can get my head around all this!!!! and then hopefully i can crack on with it!!

well work wasnt that bad after all, still a little boring though and didnt get out on the bus!!!

was in work for 24 1/2 hrs on saturday/sunday, off shift at 11pm though to go to bed, but cant sleep in that horrible old bed and before you know it , its time to get up and start again at 7am. what makes things more difficult is that we have no domestic assistant(cleaner) she left two years ago and was never replaced so at the weekend i was doing my job as well as the seniors job and the cleaners job( no wonder we get tired!!!)and looking after the people too!!!

hopefully things will get easier soon!!!!!

well off to work shortly!!! 1:30-9:30pm!! its okay just a little boring just now, i work with special needs in a respite unit(that bit i love) but the sitting around doing very little due to lack of transport is what i cant stand and the poor clients, being fed up and bored!!! out of my hands though im afraid so just have to plod on. will report back tommorow on my day at work(knowing my luck, we'll probably get the use of a bus today and it wont be that bad!!!)

fairyelora continued

just realised how crazy that actually sounds, but ohwell, 'flies are ugly though and have more chance of getting killed by a rollled up newspaper/magazine, slipper or any other splatting device!!!! just think would you splat a fairy if you seen one floating around your sitting room??????????? and as i said elora is a nice name.

why fairyelora, well fairy because i like fairies( i would love to be one!!!, strange i know, would love to fly and instead of fly on the wall i could be a fairy on the wall!!!!!) and Elora??? it is the name of the princess baby in the film WILLOW which is one of my favourite films, so there we go.
