Plans seem to be well underway Slugsta. I dont miss the xmas food shopping nightmare I can tell you.
Dublin plans have changed due to a Training course in Loanhead, so I plan on taking full advantage of this trip to Scotland. Nearest airport is Edinburgh, so plan on having 3 days holiday there before the training.
So WAISTers is there anywhere you recommend near Edinburgh to stay, visit, tourist stuff, walking (though it is January so may be snowed in!!!) I dont mind staying in a cottage close to a pub or a town hotel. I've never been to Scotland before and its somewhere I've always wanted to go.
The do last night was with the international nurses we've recruited, I feel i've learnt a lot from such different cultures and lifestyles. Its been a pleasure getting to know the group. There is about 50 of them. It was a meal and disco last night at a traditional hotel, silver service the lot. They had no idea what christmas crackers were, and when they came round with the bread rolls, they put butter and the cranberry sauce on them!!! very funny especially when we said it was for the turkey "jam with turkey"!!!
This weekend I have NOTHING planned, Saturday night I'm treating myself to pizza and Strictly and feet up on the sofa.
Sounds like a good night planned tomorrow Chuggy. I like Billy show, one of my faves.
Yep I have been worried that MF would want "more" but he seems ok with the set up so far so just see where it leads. I have lots of plans this next year for myself and girlies and that isnt going to change. And I'm so looking forward to the Spring/Summer, I've not had the chance to explore the area with ex because he didnt want to go anywhere, now I cant wait to get out and about and enjoy the area I moved to........thats why I moved!!!!
I am as ruff as a bears arse, xmas party turned out to be very messy, I ended up staying over at the hotel, I got in bed (alone I might add) at 3am, I am now sitting at my desk with a stinking cold, stinking headache and I've lost my voice. I would love to throw a sicky but boss was at party too (and she looks quite ruff this morning too!!!)
Chuggy - MF (Man-Friend) is very uncomplecated too, there are no kids, no responsibilities so just enjoying one anothers company. And he bought me some Lindt choc so he's very perseptive too!!! He works away quite a lot so it works out quite well.
