A Tuesday In Late Summer!

The garden in all its summer bloom!

Yesterday was a national, or Bank, holiday as we call them over here in the UK and normally that means that it rains all day and yes it did!  DH and Eldest decided on Saturday to repair the garden gate and managed to get most of it done except for the last little bit which they were going to do on Monday and then it rained and rained and rained!!!!!!!

Eldest first thing on his Birthday!!!  Don’t think he was quite awake!!!!

He had woken up enough for Breakfast at Starbucks!

His present was a three hour trailer driving taster lesson, ie learning to drive a car with the trailer on!  He had a great time and said after he finished it, it was on his Birthday, that he hadn’t concentrated as much since his driving test!  He had a great time.  We all went out in the evening for dinner with them and Girlfriend’s family.

It has been a busy few days I have got my three projects completed over the weekend but I can’t show them to you yet as it is for the Blog Hop beginning on September 3rd. Please stop by then to see what I have been up to.

You can see how excited Treacle is?

Treacle and I are super excited as we won one of the other prizes on Pets On Quilts Show 2014.  Snoodles let us know this morning and we can’t wait to see our prize.  As soon as it arrives we will let you know.  A Big Thank You to Snoodles at Lily Pad Quilting who puts together this wonderful show and to all the sponsors for their generous prizes.

Finally this is Treacle eating the ice off the patio that was poured there after Youngest then Eldest did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!!!! I fortunately had to do the filming but still ended up getting wet!!!!!  We then donated on-line.  Any research into these terrible diseases which affect lots of people round the World, is worth sponsoring.

I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday.

Hugs, Susie x
