Hi folks sorry have slipped off this this last week work has been so very busy and hot so coming home I have done nothing. so last weekend I went along to Inverness for the Luis Palau festival, he is along the same lines as Billy Grahams preaching he was so good I really listened to him, there were also live rock bands which were fab my daughter Dea and her friends danced, jumped and sang our hearts out. it was a great day. We got there just after 1pm and got home 9.30pm and considering I was suppose to be home at teatime it was just too good to leave.

Good morning ladies, what a strange morning not logging into my favourite forum, seems so very sad that it hase finished but life goes on and we will get going with the blogs instead.

Today seems to be another glorious day but can my body really cope with more sun. Brin is sitting at the back door waiting for his long walk along the beach which is lovely and my neices will be with us today as the teachers are in for training today.
The house is slowly becoming a tip again but only because Im up to date with the washing but theres no place to put it all.
Hope you all have a lovely day, I will be back on to see what challenges I can get on doing so see you all soon. x
