I have been told I have to buy a suit, my youngest is getting married  ( again) in August. I know I will only wear it once, what a waste of money.

Ya never know Trogg, you might get invited to someone else's wedding. Or perhaps attend a medal presentation. I'll put me suit on to accompany you.

I bought one for my son's wedding five years ago. I think I might have put on a few pounds since then. When I was working I only wore a suit for board meetings or seeing customers. I gave my dinner suit to my son. I've not been to a formal dinner in 25 years. Do they still have them?

If you aren't fussy or image-conscious (I suspect I know the answer !)  get a suit from Primark.

 

Cheap enough to wear once and then ignore for ever more.

 

You could even come to the next meet-up in it.

Wedding dresses cost so much, you'd have to emulate Liz Taylor to get your money's worth out of it! Perhaps Liz Taylor plus Zsa Zsa Gabor and you'd just about break even.

My sons first wedding was 30 years ago, I wouldnt fit into that suit, even if I still had it  and styles have changed. The sad thing for me is the wife has to have new dress, shoes, hat, hand bag the whole works.

Being a McDonald by birth (yeah we were those guys at Glencoe) I understand the kilt but you did have to have good legs. Huge yardage of material in those kilts which was actually why they were so warm but also pretty windy in Scotland. I do have some McDonald tartan (ha predictive text tried to make me put McDonald tarts , guess there were some of those too) I love Scotland so must be in my blood I suppose.

No also tarts that were massacred Jill Sparrow. Love a good Bakewell. My sister in law made one once and forgot to put the jam in it and it has always been called the Bakeill tart not well. Still nice though.

Went to a Funeral to-day at Mansfield Crem,

On getting there we looked at the notice board to see which chaple it was in.  I knew that it had more that one chaple.  It was a friend of ours that we wanted to say our good-byes to. So we all got behind the que that was going into the first chaple. There was about  of us. Just a minute do any of you reconise any of the funeral people or any body in the que?  as I said there is more than one chapel. So off too the notice board to look at againg. Chapel no 2 was where we sould be. Where is chaple no2 ?? we had to ask, inaly made it late, but better late than never.  Recomendation to Mansfield Crem.

You need a map with thw chapel on where they are , then maybe people would arrive on time.

Hi Jill yes I agree but for some reason this one was only a notice on the board, and if you were a stranger at Mansfield Crem there no way of knowing how many chaple they have.

Well Friday 13th unlucky for some? or even Lucky?   i know why it's called that now

Had a 3 30 app at QMC for Ultra sound.

Missing the car like crazey but due to health conditions no longer feel safe to drive. So sold car money in the bank.  

Master and I with app being 3 30 decided to catch 11 45 bus into the city. Thought about dinner and we had called at a French Restrant on Milton st the other day and most impressed so booked res for 1 00pm dinner.  Arrived at bus stop with time to spear, well waited and waited for the bus. It ended up 20mins late, then giong into city hit road works. Telephoned res told them we would be late. No probs. they said. Then more hold ups we would never get to lunch and get a tram down to QMC for 3 30. So telephoned again and had to cancel. Lunch ended up steakbake fro Greggs. Did arrive at QMC in pleanty of time. 
GOOD NEWS after Ultra Sound the nice young doc told me that i did not have cancer. So on cloud nine,  Waited for the bus home and waited only one bus to Jacksdale each hour, but every 20 mins one to Eastwood then get a taxi. Still waiting for bus ANY!!! 3 did not turn up on time when one finaly came not many seats left and by the time it had gone a few stops, it was like being a sardine in a tin,  finaly arrived at Eastwood, was going for food and drink at the pub but by this time just wanted to get home, called in morrisons for bottle of wine, phone taxi arrived home 6-30ish, 

Sat on sofa Glass of wine in hand,

NO CANCER BUT IN HEVEN JUST SITTING ON SOFA WITH A BOTTLE WHOPPS SORRY GLASS IN MY HAND.

What more can one ask???

Glad to hear your appointment turned out favourable Mary1947. 

Maybe you should treat yourself to a motorbike and have some stabilisers fitted, or perhaps one of those rental scooters that lay around everywhere. Take care gal  ! B.
