WE'RE ALL GOING ON A SUMMER HOLIDAY! - well I am anyway!

Ok the house is upside down there are clothes everywhere and a certain little girl is climbing in and out of suitcases - yep it is that time of year again - mummymo's summer holiday! I had great intentions of catching up with all of your discussions before I left but I have been a bit lethargic and demotivated the last few days so I know that isn't going to happen before I leave tomorrow, I am not even going to say I will try and catch up with them when I come home - any I do not get tonight will be deleted as I know I will just get stressed otherwise and we can't go on holiday with me any more stressed than I already am! lol WE are off to Aviemore in the Highlands of Scotland yomorrow and won;t be back for a week - I would say I'll let you know all the gory details when I get home but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on which ay you look at it) I plan to do very, very little! Hopefully we will have the packing finished tonight and tidied up a bit tomorrow before we leave! Have fun and see you all in a week - oh and if we get things done here I may be able to play for a while later on tonight! lol Hugs and I'll miss you all! xxxx

Hi mummymo, Wow, it's great that you were able to stop by here, to let us all know what you're going to be up to. Don't worry about any discussions you don't get to, as I'm still trying to catch up as a result of my computer being on the fritz, for over three weeks. As it turns out, just when you're heading back from your holiday, my daughter and I will be going to my sister's for a week. This will be our holiday, and we'll take another week with them in August. We always have a good time. In fact, my sister's coming out to stay with us a week from today, to help me celebrate my birthday, my daughter's which is the day after mine, and my grandson's which is on the 29th. Then we'll be heading to their place in the next day or so. You have a wonderful time, and make sure you get a really good rest. It sounds like a lovely place you're going to. Love and hugs to you. xxx

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. I'll do my best to relax, as you've suggested. Life really can be so stressful, and I have to remind myself (constantly), that some of the things I stress over just aren't worth it. I'll see if I can 'sneak' online a few times while at my sister's, as there are times when I find everyone is occupied, and I can grab some computer time. If not, I'll 'talk' with when we're back. By the way, if you're just reading this after being away, welcome home, and I hope you had a great time, and didn't overdo. By the way, when is your birthday? Take care.

Have a great but restful time, my dear friend. I know how you've been looking forward to this holiday with your family, and although I've never been to Scotland, I've heard Aviemore is a beautiful place. Before you go, I want to thank you so very much for your support this week, whilst I've been at Gabs'. You've been a treasure, as always. Now, it's your time, so just go and relax and enjoy your holiday time. Brightest Blessings, love and hugs. xxxxx

One of these days you really have to visit Scotland! Hopefully David will keep his word and not push the wheelchair over rough ground! lol Thanks for that Darkwing - I wish I could have done something practical and I really appreciate that you did! Speak very soon I hope! Hugs xxx

Books! I haven't organised my books! Thanks for that it would cost me a fortune if I left it til I got there, I usually take about 4 and read most of them. I know you will do a great job of keeping the place running and I can't wait to get back! xxx

I really hope you're going to enjoy this well deserved holiday, my dear friend. A change of scenery is so beneficial for emotional balance. Not that I think you're out of balance,lol. Stick to what you've said here and do very, VERY LITTLE. I hope you're going to have a nice, relaxing week and the whether is going to cooperate. Tons of love and a big hug XXX Dana

D'oh I thought that was an open invite lol, don't think Aviemore is ready to be invaded by a hairy wolf yet! Mind you I think I would cause mayhem for sure! Could you imagine? Seriously though have a wonderful time, you sure deserve it! Time to unwind and destress yourself! Enjoy and relax. I hope the weather is good to you and I will be looking forward in hearing all the gory details on your return and some pics? Are you taking a camera? I will be thinking of you, hey you know I always do, safe journey and love to your family and tell them Wolfie wishes them a fantastic holiday xxxxx

Now my darling brother don't you know there are wolves there already - you could come along and be leader of the pack! I have to try and remember to take the camera - thanks for the reminder! Can you imagine if you were coming along - we would sure have fun and would probably be 'asked to leave' a few places! lol You have a great weekend my darling and remember I love you loads! hugs xxxx

Well, have a wonderful time. My wife may send you a friend request just so she can talk to you about your trip. She loves Scotland and has been wanting to talk to someone that has been there just to hear about it. She has never been herself but many of the books she reads take place there. Her screen is cjgrooms and you will probably be hearing from her.

I'm working all summer this time to many vacations the last 4 years!!! 4 years ago wife went to Scotland 14 days, and I went to Baha Mexico to sail fish, year later went to Disney land 14 days with kids, year later we took kids to Hawaii for 7 days, then last year took a trip in a rented R/V for three weeks to Washington, then to Wisconsin, to south Dakota, Wyoming and the grand canyon and back. 5,000 miles with two teens and two dogs. Now I'm broke paying credit card bills. Visa Excepted every where!!! Maybe things will change soon, I have a book reading and book signing out of town June 30th in Livermore, Ca. Maybe I'll hit it big???

I hope you have a wonderful time. Tell us all about it, and send us photos. I have not been to the Highlands, I was born in Dingwall, just outside of Inverness, Scotland, and I wanted to go there - well I did want to see the Lock Ness Monster. and see all the places I read about in Robert Lewis Stevenson's and Sir Walter Scott's books.
@mummymo (23707)

I wish I had been able to go back via Inverness and Loch ness - we very often do although I wasn't up to a longer car journey than necessary! I will tell you all about it over the next few days - we had a great time! If I can find some decent photos for you I will post them! xxx
