It Finally Happened!


Yes it finally happened I hit the wall of too much to do and not enough time in which to do it!!!!  It didn’t help that DH has had a heavy cold these last few days so no sleep for anyone including Treacle! 

So because DH didn’t feel well at all he stayed at home working instead of visiting customers etc, which then completely threw out my routine, which is why the Blog posts stopped!!!  Friday I did my house jobs and then ran out to do some errands and then Saturday was supposed to be getting some jobs done before Christmas, which didn’t happen as DH had some urgent work to do and then he was out in the evening compering a 60th Birthday party! I spent the afternoon quilting 🙂


Sunday we went to visit family in Nottingham and to lay a wreath at DH’s Parents grave and I also went to see a tree that was planted for my family and then in the evening we went to Derby Cathedral for the Carol Service which was lovely.  As the Boys were both out and busy doing their own things DH and I went for an early dinner and it was really nice.  We got home at 8.00pm which was good as it was blowing a gale and raining stair rods!!!!

DH is now starting to feel better so is back out visiting customers and has a Swimming meeting tonight!  I got all my proper work done today as well as a visit to the tip with some rubbish and also to our local Charity Shop with some things we had sorted out.  Tonight I have a basket of ironing to get through and hopefully tomorrow I can get a few more of my jobs crossed off my list. 

I do hope all your Christmas preparations are going well.  I will also do Friday Book Club this coming Friday as I missed last Friday, but I blame DH!!!!

Happy Festive Monday, you lovely lot.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Glad DH is feeling better and able to get back out visiting clients!! They don’t seem to understand that just having someone else in the house disrupts our routines when we are used to being alone!! The noise you can’t make, the room you can’t disturb because they are in there sleeping/working…how needing to take into consideration someone else’s want and needs!! For me, my dad throws off my schedule when he doesn’t get up for breakfast at a “normal” time…too early/too late and my day is off kilter! It’s not that we don’t love them, but we do enjoy our routines!! Yikes, just a week until Christmas Eve!!! And I’ve done nothing to prepare for Christmas…I just have no energy for it this year.

    Uh oh! A wrinkle in the Christmas list! We’re happy to hear that DH is feeling better and things are getting back to normal for him. Time to regroup and not stress. It is what it is, Miss Susie. Relax and take time to enjoy and have some fun!
