Autumn Tuesday!

Our trees are starting to turn as Autumn continues its march towards Winter.  However tomorrow and Thursday it is due to be 20°C again although falling to 3°C at night!  The last few days have been very chilly but I have resisted turning our heat on because of the next two days!!!  However if it continues to be cool then I will be putting the heat on!!!!

Treacle has taken to curling up in her basket very small as she had her fur cut last week and its gone cold!  It always happens!!!

Speaking of weather they have forecast, at the moment, for us to have a very hard Winter with lots of snow like 2010 when this picture was taken.  We had not had this amount of snow in a long while and you can see how deep it was and this was just the amount of snow which had fallen overnight!!!  They have also forecast a White Christmas but the weather people are notorious for getting the forecasts wrong so we shall see!!!!

Like this past weekend when they forecast heavy rain for the whole weekend, so DH and I planned on doing jobs inside all weekend, and yet it was quite nice!!!!  We still did the indoor jobs just to get them done, especially before October as every weekend in October has a swimming or compering event on, in fact we don’t have any weekends free at all.  So looking forward to November!  I know you are not supposed to wish time away but I just know it is going to be manic!!!

Speaking of Christmas, or were we?  Well they are getting things into the shops for Christmas already!!!  Anyway I have arranged to go with my good friend, Jayne, Christmas shopping in November.  I don’t know how much shopping we will get done but it is a great excuse for a day out in Nottingham and to have lunch and even if we don’t spend much we get to see all the Christmas displays which is always great.  Can’t wait.

I am doing quite well at the moment keeping up to date with my work and house jobs etc and I do think that makes things easier for me.  I have started on the second baby quilt getting it quilted and hope to finish it by the end of this week.  This coming weekend on Saturday day time DH and I are hoping to go to a ploughing match over in Nottinghamshire, near to where DH was born and if the weather is kind I will get some pictures.  Saturday evening it’s our Friends 50th Anniversary Dinner which we are looking forward to.  Sunday we will be doing a little bit more in the garden if the weather is kind. 

DH had his tooth fixed on Friday but it is still sore, the Dentist said it will be for another week or so but hopefully he will not need any more visits or treatment.  The Dentist is still not sure what happened but hopes that he has fixed it now!!!!! 

We have a few birthdays coming up in October too, DH being one of them at the end of the month but as we are away for our Anniversary at the beginning of November I think he will wait for his presents then!!!  It is always a very busy few months in the run up to Christmas which is why by the time I get to Christmas Day I feel as if I have run a marathon!!!  Hey ho!

I hope you are having a great week, whatever you lovely lot are up to.

Hugs, Susie xx

    We are supposed to hit 91 on Thursday…always nice to have good weather for my birthday! Our winter here in the west is supposed to be normal…cold and the usual precipitation. I was hoping for tons of snow, but it looks like the northeast part of the country will be getting that. The most snow I remember in a 24 hour period here in town was 24 inches on Valentine’s Day 1990…hubby was in Florida and I was 6 months pregnant and shoveling snow! Hope your weekend weather is perfect for all you want to accomplish!!
