Wow

How did I manage to dissappear for that long - so far behind?  I suppose it asn't helped that I have been working a couple of "normal" weeks, which is actually only 3 1/2 days, but I have been very tired the rest of the time.  I also ended up very sore after having Carpel Tunnel injection.  The GP just caught a nerve as he put the needle in, and although he moved it it was still really sore for a week.

Jiffy has been keeping OK, which is good.

I have booked my holiday.  I will be out of the country for almost all of July (and a couple of days of June).  This coming Thursday I shall be meeting up with a lady and her dog who may be Jiffy's carer for the holiday.

The decorating is finished for the present.  I am slowly trying to pack things away in their permenant home.  However I have decided to have a conservatory built!  So some things will have to move again after Easter.  I will post some pictures soon, I promise.

Still I am posting a couple of pictures here.  Last Wednesday I had an email to say that Mum & Dad's stones had been placed.  If you are on Facebook you will have seen the overall view, but here are some more.

Wow, there really aren't many surnames like Weatherhogg left in the world. What a wonderful name.

Having a lovely not-caring-where-I-end-up ride around on my weekly East of Scotland bus card.

Left Blairgowrie at 9am; spent some time in Perth; then ended up in Kinross, simply because seconds after I wandered to the bus station a Kinross bus arrived. Managed the good fortune to get off there just yards from a tiny very new; like five days old, coffee shop, where I had some wonderfull coffee. Now in Dunfermline drinking Green Tea in a Caffe Nero which wasn;t here the last time I was in Dunfermline, before I eventually wend my way home via St. Andrews and Dundee.

My mother's maiden name was Penfound, btw. Did briefly consider chnaging my name to that as I have been sure for a considerable period of time that I didn;t want my father's family name attached to me when I popped my cork.

Have a wonderful Sunday,
kerk

I am the only one in the family who loves our surname. When I was a kid I used to say how much I loved it and Mum & Dad used to laugh and say that I would end up changing it ... maybe that's why I never married! The name is to do with shepherds and sheep.

Hope you had a great day out ... I was a good girl and actually did some more sorting out.

Ouch. Sorry to hear about the nerve.

Their new stones look beautiful.

Oooh, exciting about the conservatory. I love the amount of light they let in.

Where are you going on holiday?

Well at least the wrist is now doing well - and am getting excited about the conservatory.

I am going to visit a friend and her father/step-mother in Oregon for 10 days. I am then heading off by myself to California for 10 days, and then to Boston, before heading home.

Tony Robinson; Baldrick, wrote a book about lost surnames; during an interview he said that a great many very old names were wiped out by the losses due to the Pals Battalions in The Great War.

And I had a great day out; its proved needed as I'm not doing so well now, but today's stories and memories of Buffy are helping more than they should.

A whole month away! Where are you going? (I'm sure you told us - I've forgotten ...) I second the admiration for your name.
