Happy St. Andrew’s Day.

SAN0005-400x400

Today is St. Andrew’s Day, Patron Saint of Scotland, home of my Ancestors!!!  As you know we spend our holidays in Scotland and the whole family love it, more space and less people and I think that is definitely something to treasure in this day and age!!!!!

Today has not been much better than yesterday or the rest of this week so I will definitely be glad to see the back of it.  I just think sometimes, especially if you are having an easy time of it, the Universe decides to give you a week like I have had to remind you to be grateful!  Well Universe I am very grateful for all my blessings so back off now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last night DH was compering the Christmas Light Switch on in Long Eaton and tonight the same but at Ilkeston.  Yesterday the weather was not good at all with the tail end of a storm battering Britain at the moment.  However today the sun is out and that is the first time in about two weeks we have seen it.  It has been so overcast, grey, damp and cold that I honestly thought the sun had gone away for its holidays!!!!

If I can get a lot of my monthly house jobs done today then we have been asked by the Boys if we can decorate our Home for Christmas over the weekend!  That means getting the tree tomorrow morning and then an expedition into the attic for all the Christmas decorations!  I am not moaning however as I absolutely love it.  Tomorrow evening DH and I are out in Nottingham for dinner and we are going to have a walk round and see the lights etc so hopefully I will have some pictures for you on Monday!

Sunday is Youngest’s Birthday so Eldest and Girlfriend are coming round for the day and we are again out for dinner in the evening.  It really has been a lovely few weeks.

I still have two Christmas presents to get and then that is all done and wrapped and ready and waiting, I need to finish my cards and get the stamps and I have some more baking to do.  I have ordered the Christmas food and drink so that is all sorted and we have heard from our friends in Jersey who are coming back to Derbyshire for Christmas, so we are going to be able to see them between Christmas and New Year which will be great to catch up with them. 

I hope you have all had a better week than I and will have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    We do get complacent when things are going smoothly and only really appreciate them when something goes awry. Time for the reminder to move along!! So glad you had sunshine today…we are expecting snow on the valley floor tomorrow morning…up to 3 feet in the mountains, only a few inches down here. Enjoy every day for there are more blessing then bashings every day…we just remember the bashings far longer!!
