Our Wedding Anniversary.

Hello everyone, I hope y’all having a good weekend. Yesterday I went over to see my mates Jo and David and we went and did a bit of shopping and just generally had a fun day so that was good. I wasn’t late back as Fallon was away playing hockey and I didn’t know when she would get home so I didn’t like the idea of Vicki sitting home alone all night. As it turned out Fallon was home for about 8 and treated us to a Chinese meal so had that and watched a couple of movies on the TV, one of which was way too violent for me to enjoy. It never used to bother me but these days I just don’t see death as entertainment, especially as they bandy it about like life and death mean nothing.

Today is our wedding anniversary, we’ve been married 18 years now, there have been hard times but lots of good ones too. Vicki likes the cloud tree that I’ve trained for her, I bought a nice pot to put it in too and told her that if she didn’t like the tree she could use the pot for something else if she wanted.

Thanks everyone for your kind words about my tidy desk. Its like it is at the mo because I had to clear everything off to re-arrange it all, I often getting it looking this way with no clutter about but bit by bit it ends up looking like a refuge dump, this time though I’m more determined to keep it tidy, I’m not sure how long I will remain determined though!!

I would like to thank
Phil Voice for offering me some sort of guest posting in his own blog, I think you were perhaps thinking that I was giving up blogging when you made the offer Phil, I do appreciate it and you are very kind and I think had I got my ‘nice matters’ award for this blog instead of my other one I would be passing it on to you.

I wouldn’t say I was depressed
Kimmie, although its true to say that I wasn’t as motivated in my work last week as usual. I once told my boss here that I do all the extra things and go the extra bit that makes all the difference because I like the place and it’s more than just a job to me, but when the place kicks you in the teeth you see it for what it really is, which is just a job. So I think that’s what happened last week, I’m not depressed, and I’m not motivated very much either which is a shame but I’m sure with time it will pass, and of course I find this time of year very uninspiring anyway.

As I can’t show you pics of the gardens anymore I’m working on taking you on a trip along the West Highland Way, as its an hiking trip I have to try and fit into this blog somehow. As I obviously can’t write it all in one posting I’m going to write a bit each day but I don’t want it to be fragmented by present everyday stuff so I think what I’ll do is find a separate place for it and then put a link to that place somewhere in my daily posting – what do you all think?

Well better be off now as my dinner is nearly ready, I sure wish you could all smell it!!

Bob...(and Vicki) Happy Anniversary! This year my Knight and I celebrated our 21st (that is a loooonnng time, huh! And I couldn't be happier!-well, maybe if our Guatemalan adoption was working out-sigh)

Bob, so glad you aren't depressed, I was generally worried.

Your hiking trip sounds great...just pictures of the side of the road things would be smashing...the local church, the shops, your grocery store...where you buy plants (we call it a nursery you call it that?) Of course hiking is great, but just the things you see out your car window would be lovely.

I'd still love to see Vicki's harvest decorations at church!

Hey...feel free to come and re-get the nice award at my was for YOU and not just your blog. Really without you, your blog would be pretty dull ;-)

cheers and blessings
