Good morning every one well that's our holiday just about over, the car is back to HETZ.  We are just waiting for them to explain how we were told at Calgary that the road side assistance was 10 dollars, to find when we hand it in here that's 10dollars a day. Of course it's nothing to do with them. But we questioned the cost as the  chap said no it will be 10 dollars, so we will wait and see. We did over 2,770 kms. Just a few miles. The weather has been really foggy so haven't been able to see much.  We have been visiting Charlie's family, some I have liked others not, it's  true the saying ( you can choose your friends but not family) today we meet up with his youngest niece who is expecting her first baby in January. This baby has cost a lot of dollars as it's an IVF baby.  No free goes here any way I made up a basket to give her she had her baby shower at the beginning of last week which we missed. They don't know what they are having so it's all in creams, white and lemon.

She just loved it. Now I know that hand knitted little jackets are not worn so much now a days but from her auntie I was told she wanted to find someone who could knit hence the two jackets.  She was over the moon with everything.  

Any way we are away out for tea, I will be back hopefully in Glasgow by 6.30am Wednesday.

  4. Good Morning Sis,
    Another stunning basket, no wonder the girl was delighted with it. Nothing nicer than seeing a new baby wearing "hand made" cardi's and jackets.
    Glad you have had such a wonderful holiday but will be delighted to have you back. A wee bit selfish, but have missed you.
    Save journey, hope the fog clears so your take-off is not delayed

  6. Good Morning Hazel, gosh coming back already, I too thought you were away for 3 weeks. The time has gone in quickly.

    Gorgeous basket, love the creams and lemon shades, and wonderful that the new mum wants her baby in hand knitted garments, nothing nicer. Did you knit them youself?

    I'm so pleased you and Charlie had such a great holiday and got around to see so much, I've loved travelling around with you and the fab photos.
    Let's hope there are no delays this time and you get away on time and have a safe journey home, hugs Kate X

  8. Glad you had a good holiday and hope you get things sorted with the car hire place. They do try it on don't they? And most people just give in to save the hassle. I guess they rely on that. Your baby basket is another gorgeous one. Safe journey. Christine xx
