Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas !!!! It's just 9 days till Christmas and i can't wait - i feel like an excited child and talking of excited children while i was shopping in Truro this weekend i bumped into a freind who had her 6 year old son with her, i knelt down to speak to him 'what would you like Santa to bring you' i enquired..... he looked thoughtful, glanced at his Mum, then put his finger to his lips and said 'a sellotape dispenser' !!!! I stared at him, glanced up at his mother then back to the child and repeated his words 'a sellotape dispenser'.. 'yes' he said excitedly, his eyes spakling with delight and the biggest smile on his face. Such innocence...driving home later that afternoon if made me think of all my childhood memories of the Christmas's i had spent with my parents and grandparents, they were the happiest times of my life.

Merry Christmas everyone XXXXXXX

Still Single !

Hello :o)

I'm still single (giggles)..... we met at Asda as it was a focal point for both of us, and we sat there in the cafe for 3 hours, it must have been the most boring date i've ever had. I'm not being unkind but all he could talk about was his ex and his children.... so its ok to talk about your children at a first date but your ex ?! and at one point i was almost noddin off to sleep. Oh well what is it they say, nothing ventured nothing gained ;o) I am giving up the dating game.....well for a little while (she giggles).

Just checked my Euro Millions lottery ticket as i just read on AOL that is been won by someone in Britain and they have not put their claim in yet - 132 million, i wish, i wish, i wish......... no its not me :o( So it doesn't look as if i will be buying my Italian Villa this week.

I am off to babysit my flatemate's grandchildren this evening, i'm told they will be tucked up in bed, i hope so as i am not very good at getting children to bed, rather than face tantrums and tears i let them stay up ....heheee...... hopefully all will be quiet and i will be able to watch X Factor, drink coffee and eat cake - fab !

Speaky soon :o)

Its the weekend !


I feel in the mood for a bit of 'blogging' so here i am ! You will notice the pic on my header has changed - this new pic was taken by me when the tide was out and looking back towards land - notice the little 'engine houses' these are old mine workings, i have a fascination with them which i must tell you about before too long. Anyway i digress :O) I think its about time my blogg had some interior design so i shall be playing around with it and making some changes to its look. So don't worry if you see strange things going on ..... well not to strange i hope (giggles to herself).

Its been a fantastic summer here at The Cove, and boy have i had some adventures, some of which i shall tell you all about - others, well i think its best i remain tight lipped ..... heheee.

This being a single girl household, lots of dating going on - flat mate and i are still looking for Mr Right ! Both of us on dating websites and oh my goodness what fun we are having, tho i do have some moments of 'what the hell am i doing' ....(gigglin) This morning i have a 'coffee date' with a nice chap who lives along the coast a bit from me, originally from London - he sounds very nice on the phone. Will let you know how it goes. ~Right i am off to put my best bling on .... heheee..

Speaky later X

Cross my palm with silver .....ok a ten pound note then!

Hello :o)

Jus had to come on here to tell you all how silly i was today......i was robbed.....yep, i said a

I was parking my car at the side of the road when a lady (the gypsy) knocked on my window, i hadn't even got the hand brake on....thinking she was going to tell me something important like you have a flat tyre, i opened the car door, she caught hold of my hand and said 'i have something important to tell you, he will be alright', i was a bit amazed and Kevin came to mind as he has just suffered a suspected heart attack (more of that later) i did try and interject at this point by saying i had no money......'just a little' she said, 'i don't have any change' i told her 'i have plenty change' she said and carried on reading my palm. She told me there were two men in my life, one wanted to be my friend the other my lover (i think we know which one you are Kevin - oops, thinking out loud....hehee) she told me to take things 'slowly' and enjoy it, there will be much happiness. She then went on to say i would be going to a wedding soon - i am on Saturday ! She also spoke of my mother, not completely accurately, she also said i was very happy where i was living and to not let anyone old or sick move in - bit of a weird thing to say i thought. She also said and this is what brought me down to earth ........'you are going to win $80,000 (i'm using Sandra's mac and cannot find pound sign) in August......well i am telling you if i do not win i am gonna track her down and ********* lol.... she even said that when i win our paths will cross again and i will give her 200 pounds......what !!!

She then gave me two sea shells, one for good health and one for happiness. She then said for 100 pounds she would make a lifetime wish come true......i couldn't believe it, she was asking me for 100 pounds, i told her i did not have that much money, and she said 'you do, in the bank' i asked her ' which bank, because i don't know of it' said 'ok lady, 60 pounds'..... 'no, i don't have that much money' i said again. I opened my purse and took out a ten pound note, as i had nothing smaller, she took it straight out of my hand, i was waiting for change and she wished me good luck and was gone!

So the moral of this story is if you want sea shells, go to the beach ! I've got to get tougher and stop all this silly nonsense of thinking i will get bad luck if i say no to these gypsies.

Speaky soon :o)

I finally have my outfit for the wedding and i'm afraid its 'pink' a nice dusky pink, not to bright! I did have a hat, but it does not match my new outfit so have to look for a new hat tomorrow when i pop into Truro. I'm really excited, i can't wait, my Mum's three sisters are all coming to the wedding. Tristan was the first grandchild to be born, so he is special to everyone. Its just such a shame that Mum will not be there to see him get wed. I know she will be looking down on us all, but it will be a day of mixed emotions - i've already had several little cries, daftie that i am .....i hate being so emotional at times.

This has been my last day at work. Tomorrow i am having my nails done and then my hair, it will be a nice relaxing pampering day. I'm hoping to do a bit of clothes shopping too as after the wedding i am off to stay with a much loved and dear friend of mine, we used to work together many moons ago. She lives in Somerset and has a hot fab is that ?!?!? We plan to go shopping in Bath for the day and do all sorts of things. I can't wait, it will be soooooo exciting.....hehee.

My flatemate persuaded me to look at a computer dating site, and tho i wasn't to keen i'm glad i did because i have met a very nice local lad (have to be careful what i write cos he has asked to read my blog - should i let him?) Our first date was dinner at the Blue, it was a wild windy evening, the Blue was very busy as usual but we found a nice little tucked away table outside in a sheltered spot. The waves were magnificent, big and white, Kevin remarked how they looked like a winter sea. We had a fabulous evening, the spark was there from the start (which really surprised me), we chatted and giggled, held hands and was lovely. He asked if he could see me again the following night and i readily agreed, but so soon i said, then he explained that he was off to sea on the Friday, a fishing trip lasting around 12 days. I will probably not see him now until i return from Somerset - wow, can't wait.

I've started to do the Atkins diet and am pleased to say the pounds are falling off me...hehee....... i want to loose some weight so that i can have my knees replaced next year. The consultant said i need to loose some, i'm feeling totally focused and have started my swimming again too.....tho i suspect its the draw of the jucuzzi for me really.....its sooooo relaxing and i love it !

I'll be back soon with tales of the wedding and hopefully a pic or two.

Its raining in my car ...

Hello :o)

Poor Miss Latte has been back in the garage......... a leaky roof, yet again, how many times can you take a new car back to the garage with the same problem. To be honest i am so fed up with it now i just feel like putting up with it. I asked that nice chap 'Mat', will Nissan take her back as the problem still remains unrectified......he looked astonished at my question. 'I doubt it very much' he said 'look, all convertibles leak even merc's and BMW's'..... now i looked astonished.....'well i used to own a 15 year old Mazda MX5 soft top, and her roof never leaked' he just looked at me, i felt i had to justify my statement, so put my hand over my heart and said 'honest'. He smiled at me and said 'leave it with us we'll see what we can do'. As i drove away from the garage i made a promise to myself, if they don't fix the leaky roof i am not going to complain anymore, i shall put a towell on the seat to soak up the water and live with it.

The next day i collected Miss Latte, 'we've fixed her, this little bung hole was blocked and the water was backing up and being forced back into the car', i was told.
Hmmm..... we'll see - jus waiting for rain now.
