Bogged Down!

Do you ever feel that no matter how many jobs you get finished there are still loads more to do?  Well that is how I have been feeling over the last few weeks!  In fact I feel like the hamster on the wheel going round and round and I cannot get off!

We were supposed to get some jobs done last weekend and it all went out the window when plans changed and extra things had to get done, so I moved everything to this weekend and although we are still busy I might have just managed to get them done but now DH has another event which he has to go to as President of Swimming!  So I am going to try and pull them all in this week!  I just might meet myself coming backwards!

I also need to get the food for the freezer and yesterday was so cold that I succumbed and put our heating on!  I really think the Universe has got it in for me at the moment!!!!!


This week is Goose Fair in Nottingham and DH, Youngest and I are going on Friday evening and hopefully the weather is going to be dry this year.  Last year was awful so we drove round but did not go in.  Followed by a fish and chip supper!!!  I love Goose Fair and it really, to me, heralds the start of Autumn.  I always used to go with my Mom and Dad on Friday evening and have fish and chips for supper.  We don’t go on many of the rides but it is great to just walk round and see all the sites, although Youngest and DH usually go on the dodgem cars!

A painting of Goose Fair when is was in the centre of the Town.

Saturday evening we have our first session of the swimming club championships and Youngest is swimming and then Sunday morning at 8.00am he is doing a 1500m swim as well (!) and Sunday afternoon DH has been invited as President to the Freedom of the City to be given to Adam Peaty who won Gold at the Olympics.  Next week is going to be about the same as well.  In fact when I looked at the calendar we don’t have a free weekend until the beginning of December, which the way the weeks are going will be here in no time!!!!

I hope your Tuesday is going well!

Hugs, Susie x

    You are so crazy busy!!! I don’t know how you keep up…perhaps you and DH need to learn to use the word “no” when people keep piling it on you!! Life here is much slower…some house jobs, sew a bit, umpire softball 3-4 nights a week…easy peasy. Just reading all that you are up to exhausts me!!! Life is supposed to slow down as you get older…perhaps you need to get older faster so you can slow down!!!

    Our heat has been on and it usually only comes on once a day when temps dip to 40 degrees. It feels nice☺ The painting of Goose Fair is beautiful and fun. Have a great time!
