I am a British born, living in Canada. Moved to the countryside in 2009 to a 1909 stone farmhouse. In 2014 we are going to embark on a new adventure with our home ownership.

Life is never ever dull around here and I always have a tale to tell!!

Some photos................

Not feeling too good at the moment.  So thought I'd post some photos from yesterday in the Subway, as I went to visit dd in Toronto.

DD had bought me my tokens so didn't have to get any, but I hate going through those turn stiles.

This was a quick shot of the train that was coming in on the opposite platform.  There are enough strange and unusual people in the subway system without me taking photos!!!

This was a lovely dog and so well behaved.  I think his name was Joey and he was 11 years old.  The owner a young girl was wearing those camouflage pants and boots you can see.  I think she was into the Grunge or Goth look as she had big black circles of make up around her eyes, very raccoon like.  However she was also very polite and well spoken; as I did ask her permission to take a photo of the dog.  You can apparently take your dog on the subway as long as its not rush hour.

Finally the only thing I bought other than some Carnation Milk at Shopper's were these soaps at Bath and Body works.  They were on sale for 7 bottles for $25 plus 13% tax.  I only went with Pear and Apple this time, nice and refreshing.  I normally choose the citrus scents as I like them the best.

Do you have a favourite scent when it comes to liquid hand soap?

Apple - I like the smell of fresh apple on my hands - even tho I know it is only a chemically-induced aroma.

Sorry to hear you are under the Weather, Gill. OMG, I don't think I have been on a Toronto Subway since I lived down there over 35 years ago !!!

I don't like the Subway..it's dirty and creepy....bet you picked up a bug from there!

Blogger has issues and I can't post.

Lavender is one of my favorites, coconut and citrus are too!

Sorry you're not feeling well!

The last subway I was on was in New York City...that was a long long time ago!

Hope you are feeling well soon!
I remember taking the subway so many times back and forth to work. It was a huge time waster but good to read or quilt small items to pass the time.
Favorite hand soap scents are always citrus. I love the grapefruit scent the best.

I hope you feel better soon!

As for the TTC subway: if you think there are 'interesting' people on there, you should give the subway in LA a try. Nothing beats the characters you see on there!

Hope your feeling better soon Gill!
Thats interesting that you can take your dog on the subway .. handy too! I used to love bath & body works, well I still do. But found the body wash and lotions to have to strong of a perfume scent. I do however LOVE the liquid hand soaps!! I haven't bought any in a while (thats a great deal though! usually when i do buy). I love the vanilla, pommegranete, sweet pea ... oh man probably most of them! lol.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Maybe your Molly (who is cute as a button, BTW) would enjoy a ride on the subway. My Molly certainly thinks so.

Hope you feel better soon!! I am so cheap I just use ivory soap so thats the smell I like! Ha

My hand soap smelsl just soap scent. But I use dishwashing liquid with orange scent.
Hope you feel better soon, Gill.

Citrus smells are so refreshing. Loved all your pictures.... hope you feel better soon.

Oh dear! Hope you feel better soon!

I like the smell of lavender... probably because it reminds me of my grandmother. :)

Hope you are feeling better now Gill,I think its all linked to the new moon as Dh and I have both been feeling odd too. Citrus all the way!
Hugs

I was in Toronto in August, and the subway was so lenient - dogs, furniture, crates, luggage - what a ride :)

Oh, I like citrus, too...but honestly love just plain old soap best. Just smells clean.
