babysitting a 3 year old and a 3 month old while my wife goes to the pub.... it is worryingly quiet - the 3 year old started crying when mummy left and then put herself to bed so I may have a "dream night" ahead.... lets see...

What you been doing to make you so tired Savey? Hard week?
Weekly shop done at Morrison's this aft. Picked up wife from work beforehand - she finished early. Home in daylight. Was going to go to Girvan tomorrow but not doing so now - houses we planned to look at have gone 'under offer' save one, and the weather is chilling up. Besides, I too feel like a rest.

Relaxing with red wine, flitting betwixt telly and the comp. Looking for holiday ideas in the Mallaig area & checking in here to see whats going on.
Contemplating opening some cheese - peckish. I know how to live lol.
To be honest I'm happiest at home. It's cheap 'n all.

Oh & for the first time ever I've done the euro-lottery tonight. If I win fifty million I'll stand you all a bevvy. (he said generously??)

............very busy (but successful) week at work and a poor sleep last night so feeling pretty knackered! Cooked some really nice haddock from the fish shop in the precinct in Thurso with mash and cauli - made my own cheesy cream sauce too which was rather succesful if I might say so. Coupla glasses o' Cali red Zinfandel, flop on settee and read Groat for statutory 2 mins., do the nightly lattes then on here checking my Ebay selections, then caithness.org, then............................who knows what the rest of the night will bring?
I'm open to offers.........(;->)

The John O'Groat's Journal - Friday paper in caithness - there's also the smaller Caithness Courier on a Wednesday.I think the Courier is more focused on Thurso while the Groat is more a wick paper:D

You're one up on the English then. I'd wager Land's End doesn't have a journal of its own.

I only ever went there once. It rained. All day.
At John 'O Groats last October it was dry - just.
I must say, in my humble opinion both places are almost equally uninspiring, but the island view gives Johnny the edge.

Groats on a sunny day is lovely IMHO, inspiring on a windy day and scary on a stormy day! In the height of summer its quite a cosmopolitan place, wanna practice any new language you're learning?.....nip up to Groats mid-July!

Well Paris
My good lady & I went out on the town last night, started in Spoons for tea 6/10, went into the Backer for a couple 4/10 and to speak to her nana.
After this we went round to pay our regards to Kate in Hagars,9/10, always have good time in there though.
Then we embarked into the wonderful Camps Bar! It wasnt that busy but had the usual hangers on & repribates in there,after a few songs on the karaoke we went through to Sinclairs(Yard if yer posh) and had a few boogies and drinks, so by this time were plastered so ive no idea what happened next.
So that was my Friday night Paris

Got in at 3.30am. Didn't win the 600 raffle but had a really good night singing on the karaoke. Bobby's girl is the favorite one for me at the moment but some of our friends nominate each other for songs we've never sang, that can be very embarrassing at times when you don't know them to well.
