Gavin's HERO

My Godson Gavin is 10 years old and he was to do a project in school about his hero. He chose his Granny. I thought this was very sweet. He wrote about her life and how she had cancer and lost her leg and how now her faith in God and her life within the Salvation Army has been a huge influence on his life. His granny is a huge influence on his life and I know that not only Gavin looks up to her but Aunt Jean has been an influence to me too and many others I know. This was really thought provoking for me because I wonder of one day someone will look up to me and say how I have been an influence on them. As Gavin's Godmother I need to take a look at my life and how I am dealing with situations and leading my spiritual life as I should be an example to him.

Here are a few photos of him dressed as his Granny in her Salvation Army uniform. Well done Gavin I'm proud of you, maybe with having spoken to people about your grannies faith it may be an influence on their life too..

2 years

Well today marks 2 years of Ross and I being together and I just want to say to you Ross that I love you very much and although we have our off days I am very happy at the thought of this year we are getting married. I know the next few months are going to be busy and probably a bit stressful but it will all be worth it on the 22nd September.

I love you with all my heart

Just to say ......

I just want to thank Thomas and Olwyn for being such great friends. You guys are great. You put up with me most weekends and are always there for me and I guess Ross too. You mean the world to me and I just want to say Thank you!!! We spent a lot of time with you guys over Christmas and New Year which was lovely and as always we had fun, laughter, and well probably some of it was at my expense especially when we had the conversations eh Thomas. Never mind I should be the one worrying as you are giving a SPEECH at our wedding.


During the week i received a phonecall from the wedding planner at the hotel where we are having our wedding. She says she needs to get details from us regarding numbers , menus, drinks and room requirements. So its all go as now we need to decide who will be our be guests all day and at the evening reception. Its really hard as we don't want to miss anyone out or offend anyone either.

We have till the first weekend in February when we are going to see the woman. Its all very exciting for us and a bit stressful too but I'm sure it will be great.

So there will be names flying round our heads and stressful times ahead but hopefully not too bad.

Its hard to believe that it happening this year and it less than 9 months to go !!!!!

Anyway we will be ordering the dresses this month too ..... no turing back now Ross, not that I would want to .

I'm Back


Sorry its been so long since I ahve blogged but to be honest a lot has happened and time has just flown by and I have not had much time to be on my computer. Infact I have not even been on other blogs checking out whats been going on but tonight I am in and I thought I would try to do a few posts.

Well Christmas has been and once again it was a lovely time spent with family and friends. I stayed overnight on Christmas eve at my dads house which I guess was quite strange as it will be the last Christmas morning I wil wake up at his house as a single woman. It was really nice as it was just dad and I opening presents together and once again I was given many nice things from my dad and Lesley. I got a beautiful jewellery box and lots of nice make up and money to buy a coat which I got on Tuesday. I also had lots of bits and pieces from other friends which I opened at dads. Ross came over at again I was very spoiled by him with clothes green wing dvd, my favourite perfume by Gucci and other bits an pieces. After a quick tidy up we headed to Lesleys to give out more presents to the kids and then a breakfast feast was had by us all. Oh my word I thought I was getting a bacon roll, I'm still to see the roll but to be honest I am glad there was no rolls as I dont think I could have eaten one. There was so much food ...... but so lovely. visiting Lynn and Stu house to give Alan and Libby their presents was next on the agenda which was just a flying visit but still lovely to see them all and how excited they all were at what santa had brought.

We left Gourock with a car full of presents to go to Bellshill. Ross and I were having dinner with his family which was really nice. We arrived at Bellshill and exchanged presents with my future in-laws. It was so nice as I was truley spoiled by everyone. I got a beautiful bracelet and earings set from Ruth, Jim and Joanne which I love and really will enjoy wearing. Also lots of other lovely things so much I can't remember.

Dinner was great so much food, company was nice and all in all a nice day was had .

Tried to upload some photos hmmmmmm will need to speak to the headphonaught!!!!
