So January flew by in weeks of storms and lashing rain here, brightened by watching the Australian Open Tennis and the Dakar Rally!  Watching these two countries and their warm weather made it seen a little less like winter here.  Speaking of which the Groundhog did not see his shadow so we should get an early Spring and I say bring it on!!!!!


The funeral was very respectful and really a celebration of DH’s Aunt.  However by the time we got to the cemetery the clouds had rolled in and it was blowing a gale!!!!  DH read the poem “Daffodils” by William Wordsworth, his Aunt loved her garden and spent a lot of time in it when she was able. 

Treacle is still hibernating having missed her Wednesday Wag yesterday being asleep again!!!!  I got caught up on the work I didn’t do on Tuesday as we were out all day.  In the evening we went to Youngest’s Parents Evening, he had great reports from all his teachers, just all of them imploring all the children’s parents to make sure they revise as much as they can before the exams in twelve weeks time!  And we all know how quickly the weeks fly by and it will be here in no time!!!!!!

I have a basket of ironing to do tonight and tomorrow House Jobs and grocery shopping and I am hoping to sneak the afternoon to try and tidy my sewing area!!!!!!  Well that’s the plan!!!!!  Saturday evening DH and I are going out for dinner!!!!  I know don’t fall off your chairs, we are not doing anything with swimming this week!!!  I had some vouchers given to me for my Birthday last year and then we were given some more vouchers for the same restaurant, so we have booked for Saturday.  We were supposed to go for our wedding anniversary, which is the beginning of November!!!!!!!!!!!

The views from the lane above Charleston

I paid for our holiday at Easter and can’t wait to go.  This view restores me like no other!  Seven weeks and counting!!!!!!!!! 

I hope you are having a Thrilling Thursday, its raining again here!!!

Hugs, Susie x
