The Good, The Bad and the VERY Bad.
Was quite tired today, but was waiting for David and Ronnie, who where half an hour late. I was starting to worry they had been in an accident, but both arrived safe and well. We decided to go to Balloch today, and set off. We got to the third roundabout, which you can use to get on the west coast of Loch Lomond, and it was closed off by the police. We were not taking that turnoff so quite easily (at that time), took our turnoff and went to Lomond Shores. David went to the information office to find out what happened on the road. It is a dangerous road with two areas which can have accidents. This time there had been a fatal one, so the police where out in force.

There was a market on at Lomond Shores, and we ate Al Fresco, looking out over Loch Lomond towards Ben Lomond eating seafood Palella. It was great, before that we went on a walk to get an appitite. No cooking or washing dishes for me. FTW.

Anyway this is the second day I've ate out cheaply. Yesterday I met Ailsa and had an Indian buffet for lunch, which was my main meal of the day.

Ailsa has fell out with her daughter who thinks Ailsa should buy her a car. Ailsa is a one parent family, she was paying for her daughter to get driving lessions (she has only had four lessions so far, and already wants a car) for her 21st birthday. Now Ailsa works part time. It is a good job, but it is PART TIME, and on her own. Her daughter then went to a car dealership and tried to buy a car, using Ailsa as guareenter without asking Ailsa. They had a blazing row, and the daughter is now off living with one of her friends.

Sounds like a lovely day - although sad about the accident.

As for Her daughter then went to a car dealership and tried to buy a car, using Ailsa as guareenter without asking Ailsa. They had a blazing row,

I don't blame Ailsa - I'd have been extremely cross if I was her, too.

I know, it was totally selfish.

We did have a nice day, and this evening has been so peaceful. Contented.

..she *wants* a car? Yeah well then young lady, work for it! *sigh* It's bad that there's such a big fallout though. *hugs*

She does work, but it is a low paid job in a Fitness center.

Might be for the best

As bad as the fight was for all concerned might be just the right eye opener for the daughter. Paying her own way for everything for a while has a way of doing that. Maybe daughter should have a sit down with a budget.

Ah, love the sound of the word "Contented" and I am happy for anyone who achieves it.

Re: Might be for the best

She has lived on her own before, and couldn't afford it. Had to move back in with her mother. So not sure.

I washed my bedclothes and now just looking forward to them coming out the drier. So should have a nice bed to go to!
