I'm escaping on da ferry da morrow night .... I'm off tae Paisley Toon ta ma wee lasses hoose fer a month..

 Its a working holiday.. I ran a poll to see whit da punters thought o traveling doon on da bus or tae take da car...the car won.. Cause ma lassie gave me a list o da jobs she wants done. And its as long as a giraffes neck .......

So I need tae take my rip-snorter... and my electric hand saw. three foot crowbar spirit level etc.etc.etc. I think she thinks I'm an octopus, plus my new camera in its brand new super dooper rucksack, and my holdall... crivins... I think she thinks I'm super man ...  O, I forgot my sawn off billard cue just for da muggers.....

 So Alky, dont tell the misfits dat frequent da magnies rest that I'm off..

Aye nay doot .. I think she will be putting me under a lot of pressure to get her new shed built.. and to demolish her other two sheds .. I've no doot the wee grandson will be out helping me...

As for the son in law. don't see how he can help me as he is working ten hour shifts....... never mind. my lass can help me....

Hello Lynne. Whit a day I have had.... I dug out da foundations for da shed .. then karen said it was in the wrong place..  So I dug it oot again .. Noo it just looks like da trenchs at the battle o the Somme. MG was probably there ... So he will know what I'm talking about. .....

I got stuck in the mud and my karen had to dig me out o it ... She then slipped in the mud and fell full face into it .... I had to leave her there about half an hour till I stopped laughing.............. then I woke-up..it wis just a wee dream..

I just popped in for a wee break, it makes you tired watching other people working, I mean of course alky, I conned her into coming down to paisley with me.

 told her its a wee holiday..

 So I have her oot digging the foundations for da big shed I have to put up, and she is up to her neck in the mud, cause its been raining for the last couple o days ...

the kind o weather you wouldna send your dog oot in... talking o dogs. she even complained aboot sleeping in the dogs kennel... even the dog was complaining aboot her sleeping on the dogs blanket

You just can.t please anyone these days...

Alkys up to her neck in it again, she seems to like playing in the mud ... but I think I better stop her from sleeping in the kennel.. the dog seems to have taken a fancy to her now.........

So from tonight,  she can sleep in the old shed it's all she deserves as she isna pulling her weight....

 She has only shifted about two tons o mud from the foundations ...... see these younsters, I don't know where they come from........ Anyway,  I better go back and see how she is getting on..

Thought I would just drop in for a wee drink, get really dry watching folk work..........

Alkys really doing well, I've got her mixing da concrete for da foundations now, but she has a wee bit o bother wheeling it by da barrow load, I could have helped her but I had a prior engagement [ I was away birdwatching ] and today it was pouring cats and dugs but I managed to find her an old torn waterproof jacket, it helped a wee bit, I think she has lost a bit o weight, dont know if its the hard work or maybe not eating her meals, I might have to give her a wee bit extra at her lunch break [ she gets a half-hour break ]

I think da dog feels sorry for her as he keeps giving her his leftovers....... I have da feeling that she is pining to get back to Shetland, but I telt her I've lost her boat ticket ..

So she will be here for another couple o weeks ..... only joking he.he ........... just as well she is a virtual barmaid and not real, or I would be done for cruelty.......

I think I will go birdie watching da morrow... and gae you an update o da shed ..... I want to take a burst o pictures o dat kestral .. My nephew thinks he could use it to make me a new avatar with it... clever wee lad that he is [ he is 48 ] but just a lad in my eyes ... ok. then.. I'm off just noo.. see you all later....
   Hello all .. I have to tell you all that alky has done a runner, she even took the dog with her, but at least she managed to lay the foundations for me......... maybe It's for the best, she was always complaining about me going off birdwatching and leaving her to do all the heavy work....

So I think she might be on da ferry tonight, I think it's to be a force 11 storm da nite, serves her right, it's all she deserves for leaving me in the lurch... Anyway if da rain goes off I might get the joists laid and the floor finished, then I can start to erect da steelwork o the frame o da shed ...

There again, I might go birdie-watching ...  but I canna make my mind up...... think I will go looking for dat kestral and try to get some shots o it wae da camera...

more to come tomorrow, i've an appointment wae a rough legged buzzard on the moors..
