The Week End ...its gone again !

My Grandson  Sam ,has been wanting to go fishing again with Maurice for ages ,and since Maurice works shifts its difficult to get a time when they are both available together ,so this Saturday when Maurice was off and no school for Sam ,they decided to go ,We went over on Friday evening ,to collect Sam ,who stayed here over night ,Maurice likes to leave at silly o clock .When I waved them off ,it was quite foggy ,then turned into a lovely sunny day ,they had a really good day caught lots of fish ,they were joined by David, Maurices fishing pal ,Dave was a surveyer at the compny I worked for and retired about the same time as me ,I think they both insured Sam had a good days fishing ,both helping him ,with lots of tips and guidence(sp) .Since I was up on Saturday morning I did the entry on the mystery trip,playing around until I could get the pictures on to the entry,I went shopping then sat in the garden  with my book and knitting in the sunshine ,because unlike the previous weekend this week end has been gloriously hot and sunny  ,

Our wedding ,well my Grandson Stuarts wedding really is getting very near now ,Stuart and the the men went out for a Stag night on  Saturday ,and I'think' had a good time Kate bought him a red wig with horns and had a badge made for him ,''Stu the Stag'',they all went bowling ,then off for a drink .....the hens will go out this coming Saturday ,so will report on that after ! then its the  big day the  following week June 16th

When we took Sam back on Saturday evening ,Debbie called to see if she could borrow Kizzie ,she had been suffering from a bad headache and felt a walk might clear it ,so while we were gone ,Debbie and Kizzie went exploring ,and from what Ive heard they had a whale of a time .

Yesterday was another lovely day so ,Maurice and I went to the Sunday market Kizzie was admired and met some other dogs ,and a gentleman asked us, if we would sell her to him,of course we declined,he said he was looking for a little dog for his car ! when he was out of earshot we both said he should write to Paul O Grady ,for a nodding Buster!!    then home to relax in the garden So here we are Monday again ,so have good week everyone ...with love

Jan that fishing graphic is lovely ~ and Jim's big fish is quite a catch (is it a Bream) glad Sam had a good day with plenty of advice on how to fish ~ sounds like the Stag night went well ~ Loved your pictures ~ look forward to seeing the Hen night pics ~ had to smile at the "Nodding Buster" from Paul O'Grady I wonder if that man was serious about wanting Kizzie cannot imagine you ever parting with him ~ Ally x

madcobug said...

Glad you enjoyed your weekend!  Have a fantastic week!

That was a big fish Sam caught! I'm glad he got some time to go fishing with Maurice, bet they had fun! I don't think Kizzie would like to end up as a car dog! I know some people leave them in their cars to deter thieves but what about the poor dog in hot weather? Love the pic of Maddy and Kate too! Have a good week.

Little boys like to go fishing even if they do have to get up at  "0'dark thirty" to do it.  Glad they caught some fish..that will either make him want to go again or not at all.  I guess time will tell.    Linda in Washington state

Don't weddings come round quickly? When Simon announced his at New Year it seemed like ages away, now it's 4 months tomorrow and I still haven't lost any weight!!!

Love the phrase 'Silly o'clock'.
hope the wedding goes well. I'm at one on the same day, two girls. It will seem odd kissing the bride AND the groom!

That was so nice of Maurice to take the time to take Sam fishing and give him good tips. That means so much to a young boy and something he will aways remember. Paula

elainey2465 said...

Awwwww how lovely they had that fishing trip. Lucky Kizzie having an aunty that love walking! Bet you will enjoy the hen do! Love Laine xxxx

kaydeejay5449 said...

What huge fish!  It looks like Maurice and Sam had a very successful fishing day and lots of fun together.  What a wonderful grandpa/grandson day!  I will say Kizzie is lucky she went to your home where she is loved and cared for so nicely.  She could have been a 'car dog'.  LOL  
Hugs,  Kathy

rdautumnsage said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Loved the pictures, the graphic here is perfect for this entry. I can't imagine the gall of the idiot to ask you to see Kizzy to him. What goes through peoples mind , I don't know. (Hugs) Indigo

cacklinrosie101 said...

LOL...Jan, Kizzie is quite the popular doggy.  I can't believe someone wanted to buy her for their car....grrrr.  I love the phrase silly o'clock.  Bet Sam had a great time.  Almost another weekend is upon us.  Where does the time fly to?  Can't believe the wedding is right around the corner already.  Love xx Chris

wfhbear said...

Loved the fishing story. My Dad worked shift work all his life but, he would take me fishing once in a while. It was some of the best times I ever had. Thanks for the memories. Regards, Bill.

sarajanesmiles said...

rachealcarol said...

That all sounds just idealic Jan, just the kind of thing summer is made for.  Smiling at you sitting with your knitting outside and the fishing trip.  I think you've both got relaxation pinned just right....enjoy :) Rache

irisclyde said...

It's true, that saying about time flying when you're having fun! I went fishing once, just the once! I would go again, but I don't have anyone who likes to fish to go with. I would probably sit & knit too.
