I Feel Like I have been through Hurricane Gonzalo!

It has been really bad this last week!  We are coming up to the AGM for our swimming club and to put it bluntly because of some decisions which have been made this year, one section have decided to stage a coup.  Unfortunately the only people who are going to suffer during and after this are the swimmers and certainly not the coup leaders and not us!  It really makes me angry and what they haven’t realised is that there are far reaching consequences of this coup which they have either not thought of or don’t care about.

Yesterday, as I am Secretary until the AGM, I had to send out all the paperwork and it had taken me from 2.30pm in the afternoon until 2.00am to get everything sorted and sent out!  DH was helping too and by the time we got into bed, we were exhausted!  Then he had to get up again at 5.00am as he is away for the rest of the week on business!!!!

Treacle has been trying to help and cuddling up.  In fact the other night she slept on our bed between us!  She is going to be busy tomorrow as she is off to the beauty spa for a very much needed haircut and wash!  I also need to wash all of her beds and her collar when she gets home!


Because of all of this chaos I have not had chance to do any quilting and that makes me sad!  I need to sort out my stash draw as it is far too full and to try and find anything is impossible.  I am going to have to re-think it and possibly get some new click boxes which can go under our bed.  I also have not managed to get my Giveaway sorted either 🙁

Oh to add joy to today I have to go up to support our small pool swimmers and our young swim teacher whilst the main pool is closed and my two are not swimming!  If it wasn’t for the swimmers , I would be throwing in the towel (and the towel rail too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

On a happy note I have begun my Christmas shopping and I have all the ingredients to make the three Christmas cakes and puddings I need to do this year!

64 Days to go!

I hope your day is better! 

Hugs, Susie x


PS The weather today is because of Hurricane Gonzalo; very windy, very wet and Treacle hates going out as her ears blow around!  She is funny!

    We hope things ease up and get easier for you so that you can quilt, Miss Susie! What beautiful Christmas pictures! Don’t go giving our mom any ideas. She already puts the Christmas tree up far too early! She says the lights make her smile ☺
    We can’t wait to see you all gussied up, Treacle!

    Oh, Susie, I’m so sorry! How many more years are you going to be involved with swimming with Youngest? Sometimes when people want to take over and run it their way, the best thing is to just let them deal with all the work…you’re too committed elsewhere when they ask for help. Really awful for the kids – they don’t deserve to have to deal with all the fallout from the adults’ decisions! Hard for you when you have worked as hard as you have to make the team a success for the kids and then have parents get stupid! (((hugs))) from me…give the clean and tidy Treacle a hug and pretend it’s from across the ocean!!
