I woke up this morning thinking it was the weekend! Because we had a lovely evening last night and we usually do these things on a Friday or Saturday night, I was convinced it was the weekend!!!!!!
Bonfire Night went off well and Treacle spent the night barking at them and then rushing up to us as if to say “I have scared them off for you Mom” She was fine. Our own fireworks were not too noisy, although one did have a “scream” added to it which definitely cleared out your ears!!!!!! It was also very cold and some neighbours had a bonfire so it took me back to when I was a little girl as we always had a bonfire and fireworks at my Grandparents house (they had a bigger garden) Grandad always saved up the leaves to burn on Bonfire Night and it had the most wonderful smell! Funny how smells take you back to your childhood!
Just had to share this with you from today’s newspaper! Isn’t she cute? She is a five week old sea otter who washed up on a California beach and had been abandoned by her Mom! She is busy recovering at the Monterey Bay Aquarium before she will be re-homed to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. She doesn’t have a name yet but I just loved her, she is so cute.
Today has been another one of those days when I had planned to do lots of things and ended up doing none of them, but worked instead and I still have lots to do. Including tidying my desk which looks like a bomb has hit it!!! Hate a messy desk!
Tomorrow is Christmas shopping and so I will have to spend tomorrow evening sorting out all my other jobs on the list!!!!
Today is the Boys Godmother’s birthday so I also spent a couple of hours with her catching up which was great.
What’s that, quilting? Hmm will definitely try and get some of that done over the weekend. DH has to be away Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week on business (Wednesday is our wedding anniversary) so he has suggested that I go with him and Eldest looks after Youngest and Treacle(!) The only saving grace is Girlfriend will be here too (the only sensible one out of the three of them!!!!!) It will be a lovely mini break and I can’t wait. I will be sure to take pictures.
I hope your Thursdays are going well.
Hugs, Susie x
