Hi, Thought we'd come and pay a visit to the Hebrides, seeing as no one else does.

Just looked at the video, I should imagine it is very expensive to go on this cruise!

It's on their website,

http://www.hebridean.co.uk/gallery/movie.html

Apparently the Queen chartered this in July for a holiday

She looks absolutely frozen in most of the pictures

Nearly £5000 each for 10 days in August

Hello you. Hee, hee, glad you found us. All we need is Mo and RR and we can call ourselves The Outlaws. Not to mention all the others but I think 4 is the minimum for that, lol.

We might have to jump ship again but the other forum site in the UK might be a better possibility as they have a chat forum and private messaging. Sssh!

I wonder if Matt will be able to get back from the continent? Not sure how long he's gone for.

Perhaps we could all club together and hire the ship like the royal family. Might be a tad expensive though.

Brrr! It's cold today, 3 pairs of gloves on the dog walk. 2 pairs knitted and 1 ski gloves. After yesterday I'm now doing through the TV schedule and setting the Freesat HD, there's a lot on today!! Let's hope all the cruisers have got away for Christmas, lucky things!! Not a good time for a cruise around the Hebrides though.

I had to go to Tesco at teatime yesterday as I had a £10 off a £30 spend voucher. It was like Mad Max in there, I've got bruises to show for it. The staff don't help either as they had trucks full of veggies cluttering up the aisles and also cages full of cardboard. What's the matter with these people? They're completely insane,. I was looking for some small apples for the blackbirds to eat and next thing there's a crowd of people around me. For heavens sake, who eats apples on Christmas day? Get a grip!!

I've tried my best with RR, he's been on today but he's not biting, YET!!, lol.

I've been keeping away from everyone this year as I've had the flu or colds every Christmas for the past 4 years. So far, so good. I feel for you as you feel as if you have to put on an act at Christmas when really you just want to be left alone and go to bed.

Mrs Smug here bought her sprouts weeks ago. They were on offer £1 for a large bag in Morrisons, good quality too. I froze them into half pounds bags. This year we've given up and are staying at home on Christmas Day, just the two of us. Great!! Fed up of having to fit in with our sons' in-laws plans. The last time we were invited to our elder son's house we arrived at 1.00pm as per instructed. Walking through the front door strangely no smell of cooking, worse still went into kitchen and the cooker wasn't even on. Eventually had dinner at 5.00pm after 4 hours of over-excited kids screaming, too late for us. I like to get dinner on the table about 1.30pm latest then it's got all day to digest, lol. Next year youngest son and his wife instructed to get to ours at 1.00pm, 1.30pm dinner and pudding ready. 1 HOUR later he turned up with no phone call, they decided to go visiting on the way, so overcooked everything. My older brother was here and was practically eating the furniture, lol.

So we had just the 2 of us last year and it was great. AND we could slob around on the sofa all afternoon.

I was talking to my elderly neighbour yesterday and she was saying that her daughter gets the dinner on the table at 9.00 at night. WHAT!! I'd be up all night and the next day with indigestion.

Well I went to Sainsburys this morning, a much more select group of people in there (with prices to match! - lol) The paths are so bad here, like Ice rinks, that is now safer to drive once you get on the main roads. The only problem is getting back into our road, which is terrible!

I really fancy doing the south coast on this ship, but will have to wait until my lottery comes up Then I will take you all (unless of course it's only a tenner - then you will have to pay for yourselves)

RR where are yooooo??
