Yeah It’s Friday, well Saturday now!


I had to pop into Nottingham yesterday for some more cotton thread that I am using to quilt the baby quilt.  The City Centre is in full swing with the Winter Wonderland they hold every year and ice rink in Old Market Square, so I took some pictures.  This is looking towards the Council House.

DSC04203Always a favourite the Galloping Horses.  We have had them at our Carnival in the summer.

DSC04210We have also had this at our Carnival, but not so successful!

DSC04208Nottingham still has some wonderful architecture which was fortunately not pulled down in the mad times of the 1970’s, when ugly concrete buildings replaced them!  This building was designed and built by Watson Fothergill in 1897. 

DSC04207This is the old Prudential Building at the junction of King Street and Queen Street and was built between 1894 and 1897.

Unfortunately not the same can be said for Derby, who did demolish all the old buildings for 1970’s concrete!!!!!!

Today has been hectic as usual.  Youngest was swimming between 7.00am and 9.00am so DH and I knew we had to be up early, however at 4.30am I woke up to some strange noises and at first I thought the dishwasher had gone wrong!  Then I realised that the noise was coming from outside and being up, looked out our front windows to find workmen digging up the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was not happy!  It turned out to do with the electrics and we had no power for about four hours this afternoon!

DH & Youngest are out tonight doing a Christmas disco for some friends and their exercise class (!) and I am having a quiet (tired) night in with a DVD and Treacle who will no doubt be snuggling!!!!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Hugs, Susie x

    How frustrating to wake up that early to construction noise!! And then to not have power for 4 hours…did that here earlier this week when they came to replace our meter and something on the pole broke when they were detaching our power from the pole…20 minutes with no power went to about 3 hours with no power! House got a bit chilly, but they got it on in time for me to cook dinner (drat!). Hope you have recovered!!
