A True Scot

A young Scottish lad and lass were sitting on a low stonewall, holding hands, gazing out over the loch. For several minutes
they sat silently.

Then finally Sadie looked at the Angus andsaid, "A penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin'... perhaps it's aboot time for a wee kiss."

Sadie blushed, then leaned over and kissed him lightly on the cheek. Then he blushed.  The two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

Minutes passed and Sadie spoke again.  "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps it's noo aboot time for a wee cuddle."

Sadie blushed, then leaned over and cuddled him for a few seconds. Then he blushed.  And the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.
After a while, Sadie again said, "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps it's aboot time you let me put my hand on your leg."
Sadie blushed, then took his hand and put it on her knee.  Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over
the loch before Sadie spoke again.

"Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."
The young man glanced down with a furled brow "Well, noo," he said, "my thoughts are a wee bit more serious this time.'  
"Really?" said the lass in a whisper, filled with anticipation.
"Aye," said the lad, nodding. 

Sadie looked away in shyness, began to blush, and bit her lip in anticipation of the ultimate request. 

Then he said, "Dae ye nae think it's aboot time ye paid me the first three pennies?"

55 Flash Fiction Friday - Episode 15

Join me in playing this writing game with hundreds of other bloggers including G-Man, Steveroni and Brian Miller  called 55 Flash Fiction Fridays.

Random Acts of Kindness 
Are Few and Far Between 
The pleasure’s in the giving 
Watching faces gleam 

Bestowing something trivial 
They never did expect 
A hug, a smile, a minor bequest 
Witnessing the joyful affect 

Never take things for granted 
As modest as they seem 
For someone around the corner 
Is ready to make you beam.

 FlogYoBlog Friday over at MummyTime.  Go check it out!  

Trust Me - I'm a Blogger

Looks like I might be flying down to be with my mum in Natal next week as she's scheduled to have her Vertebroplasy on Tuesday morning.  My sister and I will be flying down with the girls to be with her while she has the operation - just to give a bit of moral support.  

Lets hope things fall into place so we can make this happen and be there for my mum's big surgery.

This week I haven't been very well.  Woke up on Monday morning at about 1am and could stop throwing up.  I hate puking, especially when its projectile and comes through yer nose.  Urgh!  That bitterness never seems to go away.  Anyway on Monday I got ready to go to work, dropped the girls off at school and thought I was feeling better but the nauseausness lasted the entre day.  At one point I was sitting in a meeting and had to keep swallowing so that I wouldn't vomit over everyone.  Then I couldn't hold it any longer and just made it to the bathrooms in time.  I went home early on Monday and spent the entire afternoon in bed sleeping.  Tuesday I spent the entire day fighting nausea and laying on the couch.

I'm back at work today but feeling very delicate.  I hope it was just a bug that I have gotten rid of now.

It was parents day for Megan yesterday who is in Grade 1 and she got an awesome report!  She is excelling in almost everything!  They score them from 1 to 4.  One being poor and 4 being excellent.  She got all 3's and mostly 4's.  I am so proud of her - she is doing so well. My conscienscious little girl loves her arithmetic and is so good with numbers.  Her teacher is super impressed with her and I couldn't be happier!  Her dad said that for every 4 she gets, she'll get R10 and she can put them altogether with her tooth fairy money and get herself a Jay-board.  Megan is super chuffed so I guess we'll have to fit in a shopping spree this weekend for her too.

This weekend we have a busy one: two kiddies birthday parties on Sunday for the girls to go to, one football game on Saturday and a braai on Saturday afternoon. I was hoping for a quiet one but no such luck...

Could you ever imagine that two girls could have so much fun with an empty box?  Who needs to buy expensive toys?  An empty box keeps them amused for ages!
