The Wednesday Wag!

It was my birthday last week but as everyone was out and about we celebrated on Saturday.  Eldest came to see me on Friday evening and on Saturday morning Youngest brought me a treat from a certain food chain with a golden “M”, after he had been coaching swimming for two hours.

It was yummy.  Dad was also on the track for a good football for me for outside in the garden but he could not find a suitable one, so he is going to keep searching.  I love my tennis balls but a football is better for outside as I loose the tennis balls in the undergrowth!!!  I will show you my new football when I get it.

I got Birthday wishes and a lovely picture from Molly and her Mom, thanks you guys.

The weather is getting better and warmer so Mom is letting me stay out in the garden all day with the door open so I can come and go whilst she is working at her desk.  Roll on Summer!

Woof, Treacle

Busy Work!

Sorry I haven’t been around for a few days but it has been really busy with work, which means I haven’t really been doing anything interesting!!!!  At the weekend DH and I managed to get into the garden on Sunday and get some jobs done and we are hoping to finish them this weekend.  I will have some pictures soon. 

Saturday the weather was not too good so we managed to get jobs done in the house so we are just about caught up with that.  The next few weekends are going to be really busy with swimming, and DH out as President of County swimming.  We also have some other things we have to attend and before we know it it will be Carnival in the village!!!!

We have another Bank Holiday at the end of this month and Youngest has a week off of college again but DH is busy for the long weekend, but this means I will be able to get a lot of quilting done, as I am getting behind after my flurry of finished quilts earlier in the year!!!  However by this time of year I haven’t got half of the things done that I wanted to do so I am ahead this year!

At the beginning of December Youngest will be celebrating his 18th Birthday and because it is the start of the Christmas festivities it has been a nightmare to find a venue to celebrate, but we have finally managed it and have ordered the invitations and will be sending them out soon. 

Treacle has been busy helping with the garden and spending all day outside in the fresh air has made her tired.  Last night DH and Youngest had to go to London for Youngest to take part as an extra in a new production, so it was just Treacle and I.  She slept on our bed and at 2.30am something, possibly an owl, landed on the roof of our bedroom and it frightened her so she jumped off the bed and raced downstairs barking!!  Great job Treacle!!!!!!!!  So she eventually came back upstairs and settled down again.  At 3.47am my phone started to ring!!!  Of course I was worried there was a problem so scrambled for the light and the phone by which time it had stopped ringing.  When I finally focussed the missed call was from Tunisia!!!!!!!!!!  No I don’t know anyone in Tunisia or anyone visiting there!!!!!  So after a night of disturbed sleep I ended up waking up late and not getting up until 8.00am!!!!!! 

I think I will be going to bed early tonight!!!!

I hope your Tuesday is going well.

Thursday Again?!

Thursday seems to have come round quicker this week as we had Monday off.  It throws off my whole week!!!  I have had a few errands to run today and visited the physio for my hip which is getting better but slowly.

Today the country is voting in the local elections so I went off to vote after lunch having to time it right from the rush in the morning, the people voting during their lunch hour and before the Moms are voting after school!!!!!  I must have got it right as there was no one in!!!

I also popped in to see some friends in the village to arrange for them to come round for dinner.  Having sorted our dates the first we both had free was June 24th!!!  It is great that we all have so many things to do and at least it will give me plenty of time to plan the menu. 

It was announced today that the Duke of Edinburgh is to cease public duties from the Autumn but will appear at some events with the Queen.  I hope that I, at the grand age of 96, am still as active as the Duke.  He has done his job for the past seventy years and I think he deserves a break.  DH was at an event where the Duke was the keynote speaker and he said it was the best after dinner speech he had ever heard, of course the Duke was only 86 at the time!!!!!

Tomorrow is house jobs day and grocery shopping.  The weather today has been glorious with sunshine and been warmer than the last few days.  The weekend Saturday is not so good but Sunday is supposed to be nice so we will be out tackling the garden!  Goodness knows what wildlife we will find, hopefully not the snake again!!!!  Treacle will be helping.

I hope you are having a Thrilling Thursday

The Wednesday Wag!

Mom and I have been very busy all day at work.  In fact Mom was so busy that she didn’t realise the time and my lunchtime biscuit was an hour and a half late!  I mean really!

And to add to the time, Mom sent me outside in the garden before she would let me have my biscuit!  I had a quick patrol of the grounds to make sure there were no squirrels or cats hiding and raced back in!  Today the weather was nice this morning with lots of sunshine but then clouded over and it has gone cold again!  Mom turned the heat off again yesterday and is now regretting it!!!!  Now it is May we were hoping for some better weather but it hasn’t appeared yet!

Mom says she and Dad are hoping to get some gardening done at the weekend if the weather co-operates and I will be there to help, well supervise!

How is your Wednesday?

Woof, Treacle

Tuesday Thoughts!

I have been working today and catching up on things from the weekend.  Still have some sorting out to do but I can do that over the next few days.  I would have rather been quilting but work comes first!!!

Treacle has been having a sleepy day today as she was so busy supervising yesterday!!! 

I, too, have been sleepy today and need some motivation for the rest of the week!  I love the above quote and think I will print it for my wall!!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hugs, Susie x


Oh my it is May 1st where are the months going?

Today is a holiday here in the UK and we call them Bank Holidays because of a law which was passed in 1871 regarding Banking!  Anyway you can guarantee if it is a Bank Holiday then the weather is usally wet and today it was!!!

However it meant that, with DH’s help, I finished the Spring Cleaning!!!  The whole house has been cleaned, washed, dusted and sorted to within an inch of its life!!! All I have left to do is wash some curtains and change winter bedding and clothes for summer things and we are done!  Now we have to tackle the garden!!!

Treacle has been helping, well by supervising! Here she is in supervising mode!!!

I managed to get some more quilting done and have almost finished piecing my second super secret quilt and then I will be on to Youngest’s.

I hope you had a lovely weekend.
