This morning I came down to find Treacle very keen to make sure she got her breakfast.  I realised that the dishwasher had not washed overnight and DH had set it going before he left.  Youngest got her bowl out, filled it and fed her.

DSC04539This is the innocent face!

Well you can guess what happened!  This is one furry con artist!!!!!  She ended up having two breakfasts!!!!! Dad says you are not to have anything else for the rest of the day Treacle!!!!  Also I am going to get that sign, which we have seen on the web, which says “The Dog Has Been Fed”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Substitute Bailey for Treacle!!!!!!

The Wednesday Wag!

It is very warm here at home but thundery so I am not happy, I have retreated to my basket!!!!  Mom has made an appointment for the spa on Friday so I will get some of the wool off my coat and hopefully will be a little cooler.  Mom usually tells them to cut me shorter than normal in the summer in case it gets very hot.


Mom says Wimbledon will be on soon, she is interested in the tennis players, I am interested in the tennis balls!!!!! 

I hope you are having a sunny Woofy Wednesday.



I know I have read the books but watching the last episode of Season 5 last night was still an oh my moment!!!!!  They have done things in the series a little different to the books and things have happened sooner in the series than the books and some people have died which haven’t in the books, so there are definite surprises.  Still like the programme though!  My vote, as we are waiting for the next book to be published, is Tyrion will be King eventually!!!!

Had a swimming club committee meeting last night and I could have quite happily gone all “Red Wedding” on a few of them!!!!!  You have to watch or read Game of Thrones to know what I mean, but I think you will still get the idea!!!!!

Now another show, which I love, returned last week and I can honestly say I was lost watching it!!!!!!

Love the show but this first episode I couldn’t decide which were flashback scenes or current!!!!!!  Love Gillian Anderson in her role, especially as in The Fall she is playing an Inspector trying to catch a serial killer!

Speaking of Gillian Anderson they are currently filming the X-Files Revival and I can’t wait!!!!  Love the X-Files but come on Fox and Chris Carter we need more episodes than 6!!!!!  Just not enough! At least 12, or 24!!!!!!!!!!!

Well that has been my TV watching.  I have been quilting, well cutting out!!!! My last two super secret quilts are now cut out and I have been playing round with some fabric to make something which I will show you when I am done.  Thinking of making it a pattern!

My good friend, Jayne who we had a sewing day together, and I have booked to go to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in August!  Can’t wait.  Great show and the quilts are amazing and of course the stalls!!!!!!!!  Jayne’s Birthday is exactly one week before mine so we usually go out for lunch together, which is going to be this Friday so looking forward to that.

I hope you Tuesday is shaping up to be a Terrific day.

We made it to Friday!  Today it is very warm and humid but not sunny, so Treacle is making the most of the garden while she can, because tonight the forecast is for thunder storms for most of the night.  

DH is on his way back from Aberdeen but won’t get back until late so it will be Youngest, Treacle and I hiding under the covers!!!!!  None of us are very keen on thunderstorms.

However it won’t matter as I will be doing this over the weekend!!!!!  In fact today I have had a free afternoon and I have been planning my last two super secret quilts that I need to get done and also tidying up my material which is all spread out in Eldest’s room at the moment!  Oops!!!!!

Hopefully by Monday I will be able to show you some quilty things!!!!!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and the weather is kind to you where you are.

Hugs, Susie x

Throwback Thursday!

IMG_1883Youngest on his Tenth Birthday!

I thought I would show you pictures of when they were Ten as Eldest will be celebrating his Twentieth at the end of August!  Somehow Youngest looks younger than Eldest in the pictures!!!!  Just shows that although they are brothers they have their very own personalities.  And we love them to bits.

DSC04526Treacle is making the most of the sunshine today and tomorrow as the weekend is set for heavy rain and cold again! 😦  She is also booked into her Spa for a much needed haircut and wash, but I could not get her in until a week tomorrow.  Obviously all the doggies, or their owners, have had the same idea!!!!!

I am car-less today as it is in for its MOT and service so DH is chauffeur today! However he is abandoning me after lunch to drive to Aberdeen to see a customer and he will be staying overnight!  

However if it is going to be raining over the weekend it is the perfect excuse to be able to quilt, as I can’t possibly get into the garden!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are having a Thrilling Summer Thursday.

The Wednesday Wag!

DSC03825Mom, Dad and I went for our long walk at the weekend and it was such fun, especially getting to smell all new smells.  The weather was sunny but not too warm so I liked it.

DSC04587Here is Dad and I and there were two dogs coming past.

DSC04577This is the view Mom took looking over the hills in the Peak District.

DSC04579Dad and I stopped for a little while

DSC04584 DSC04586 DSC04585These are some rhododendrons and honeysuckle we came upon on our walk and they are from an old garden of a ruined house which Dad and I found.

DSC04583 Further round in our walk

DSC04588When we got back to the truck we had a picnic.  This is the basket that Mom got from Eldest and Girlfriend for Christmas.

DSC04589 DSC04590The best bit about the truck is I can sit in the back with my water container out of the sun.  However when we travel I get to sit in the seats in the cab with Mom and Dad.

We had a great walk and hopefully we can do it again soon.

Hope you have a Woofy Wonderful Wednesday
