About Me

My Photo
Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Hello all. I am a Nursery Nurse working with special needs children within a main stream school and love it. I have worked as a NN for 33 years and wouldn't change for anything. I have always crafted in some way or another since the age of 7. At present I do a bit of patchwork and quilting, jewellery making and card making. I run a craft class once a month in my house for 10 of my friends. I also run a card making class at the school for a handful of children once a month.

Whitehall invitational Pairs bowling competition Aberdeen

I went up to watch the Whitehall invitational Pairs bowling competition on Wednesday night. I was approached by a woman who asked if I could partner her in the last round on the Friday and Saturday as her partner was away on holiday. I agreed.
I came along to play the first game on Friday night and David Gourlay was sitting in the club house. I didn't realise that the Scottish bowls teams were taking part.
On Saturday I met Darren Burnett with his Commonwealth gold medal.
We did well and finished 3/5 in our group and 6/15 overall. Our last game was against some of the Scotland ladies  team and we beat them by 1 shot. 
It was a great experience even though it rained all day Saturday.
