Also at the Seaforde butterfly park
Do you know, with a full working week, you would think there would be enough to write about, yet I seem to have difficulties finding anything. Unless you want to hear about the fuzzy slipper phenomenon, which seems to grip a lot of women nowadays. I see them everywhere and they just look like they should be in the bedroom!

I did have a question to the city of Glasgow (in my mind) about their lovely sign. Apparently they are the proud hosts of the European Championships! Brilliant!! In what though? Nose picking? Can't see that becoming a very popular spectator sport. Cherry pit spitting? A bit better, but still not something that will draw the large crowds. Football? Oh no, it was the world championships this year and they have those alternately. 

Fortunately somebody on the bus knew it was athletics, which made sense as they were going to close some roads in the center because of some running race. I just hope I won't have to work on either of the days they close the road!

And this one too!
I nearly gave a coach load of people a heart attack the other day. I told them we would be back in Belfast by about 10.15 at night, which I thought was good going! Until I realised I was doing the early run (I usually do the late one) and should be back at around 6.15 in the evening. Whoops. 

At work there is a day by day calendar with quotes and fun facts. For Monday, July 16th the fun fact was: 1965-The Mont Blanc road tunnel, linking France with Italy, was opened. Not that remarkable really, but it was the quote that stuck with me. 

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer. Which says it all really doesn't it? 

Anyway, hope you have a good weekend. I should be off. Both Saturday and Sunday! Bliss...

PS: Miss Oswin is back to her old self fortunately. All weeds gone, no whiff anymore and the puncture seems to be healing fine. Pfew!

    The championships are in joint presentation with Berlin. Over there will be the track and field, whilst Glasgow will host the Aquatics, Cycling, Golf, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon... (you just know I'm going to be lost in sport again, right?!)

    Glad Miss O is back up to scratch and that life is actually settling into a pattern for you nicely - even with time challenges! YAM xx

  2. Ohhhhh thank goodness the adorable Miss O is back to being her diva self. Maybe just maybe her wanderlust has been cured.
    I truly hope you can avoid the crowds too. We have Super Com (folks crazy about comics and dress up like them)
    and all the crazy folks in downtown this weekend. They expect 35,000...extra people here for that. We will not go anywhere near downtown
    Hugs Cecilia

  3. Look at you, becoming comfortable enough with the new life to be shall we say a bit bored?


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
