Good grief - talk about Sod's Law! Remember how my computer didn't seem to be any different after I put it in for repair? Well it obviously reads Prosebox and saw my entry about buying a new on...

I have various dilemmas which are stopping me writing a proper entry in here in that they're taking up writing time so I thought I'd ask for help with one of them. My PC is dying and has been dy...

Just coming out the other end of a nasty cold which floored me for over a week. Had to have several days in bed so way behind with everything as a result. So. Four years ago this Tuesday just p...


That title refers to the fact that I started this entry at half past 2 this afternoon and at that point it was entitled A Miserable 58! It began "It's my birthday today and I feel absolutely awf...

My Girls in Scottish Mianderings

Haven’t written about them much lately so thought I’d devote an entry to them. I still feel incredibly lucky that they only live half an hour’s drive away from me and that I get to see them so of...


What does your online diary name mean, and why did you pick it? I feel really boring here :¬( Everyone’s coming out with all sorts of wonderful explanations as to why they picked their particula...


Surprise meal went off okay. The birthday boy did not suspect a thing and neither did my sister-in-law (his wife Margaret) - I had mistakenly thought she was in on the secret so it was a shock f...


I’m getting all behind with everything, this included, and now I’ve managed to pick a cold up from somewhere and am all choked up :( I’m staying in bed as long as possible today because we’re gi...


No-one wanted Mam’s telly from the flat and as I only have a very small one which was a spare Nikki used to have in her bedroom, I decided to take it. It’s not a huge one but is a good bit bigge...

Job Angst in Scottish Mianderings

Nikki got me this cool book ornament as one of her Christmas presents to me this year. I love it! When I went up to Mam’s flat last month to take whatever I wanted I came back with an assortm...


I do believe I’m getting a little bit better. Sometimes the things that let me know I’m beginning to re-enter the life process again are so subtle they’re easy to miss but they’re a delight when ...


My niece, (sister’s oldest daughter), Marina, has just produced a beautiful baby girl and called her Jessie Elizabeth Gertsen. The Jessie is after Mum and I couldn’t be more chuffed - just so pl...

Catching Up in Scottish Mianderings

This is the first chance I’ve had to make a proper entry. Not because I’ve been busy but because this exhaustion or whatever the hell it is sucks the life out of me daily and only gives me a few ...


I’m a bit spooked. Bailey, Willow & Snarf are all lying sleeping on my bed. Nothing wrong with that scenario in the normal grand scheme of things except that it’s 5.30 p.m. My cats NEVER s...


Well apparently it did mean she was near the end. But after the awful couple of months she’d had what a very peaceful end it was. Thank you all for your kind notes from my last entry. Incredibly ...
