Another busy week


Last Friday we headed to Glasgow to do a bit of shopping and meet up with Daniel. The top photo is of St. George's Square - already sold out for this years Christmas celebrations and ice shows. During Nov/Dec St. Georgie's Square is filled in with ice for skating - there you can skate underneath the beautiful backdrop of the City Chambers and the Christmas lights- 'Glasgow on ice' it's called. More Glasgow images here.
l have been busy getting my head together for Christmas- making lists of things to do and buy- yes, the rush has started and as l do each year, promise myself that l will not be out shopping Christmas Eve- lets hope :)
My sister-in-law was due her wee one on Nov 24th, a few days back now. l am getting excited at the thought of this little ones arrival- to be an auntie again- wonderful!! Not long now!
My wee nephew, Jonah is going to be two on the 2nd of December- how time flies. I have two sisters who are pregnant at the moment and one sister-in-law. No more for me though - three is enough to keep me busy.
The other photos are of G., Sam and l as we took a stroll along the promenade yesterday. The weather held out for a bit although it was bitterly cold. There are Eider duck chortling away on the water in the afternoon sun and Oystercatcher squabbling in the rocks. We have decided that Sam is needing a bigger bike- his knees are almost hitting the handlebars on this trike. Good 5th birthday idea for January.
Tomorrow hubby is back to work. l am heading with him again to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute which has to be one of the best drives to work with also a ferry crossing. We shall only be there for the morning but the weather looks ok so hopefully l will do a bit of light shopping.
Melissa, Sam and l made Candy Cane reindeer this evening. l got the idea from Pea's blog- wonderful gifts for his wee friends at nursery. A big thank you to Pea also for the card and gift in the mail this morning- really cheered me up.

Bests all.

Hello Horizon, now that all looks the way Christmas should look. Loved all of your photos and the beautiful slide show. I have visited Glasgow whilst on a tour through Scotland, I enjoyed it very much. My first husband who died when he was 53, was born in Glasgow. Cheers Margaret

Hi Horizon ~~ Great photos specially the one of you three. The ice under lights must be amazing. Do you ice skate or do the older kids? Pea is amazing with all se comes up with. Sam will enjoy handing out the reindeer. Glad you have got the shopping under way for Christmas. I always enjoy going to my daughter Kathy's home for a few days at Christmas
Take care my frien, Love, Merle.
