The Wednesday Wag.


I am dreaming of snow, lots and lots of snow like the above picture in 2010.  The weatherman has promised us it is going to be the snowiest of Winters this year but there is not a flake in the sky!  In fact it has been raining all day today but it has not turned to snow.  I think I am going to ask Santa Paws to bring me some.


Mom has been very busy in her sewing room this week and I, of course, have been keeping her company in there.  The sound of her sewing machine puts me right to sleep.


I am off to my Spa tomorrow for the morning to see the ladies and they are going to make me all clean, clipped and shiny ready for Santa Paws to arrive with all my gifts.  Mom will show you some pictures when I get back.

I hope you are having a Wonderful Woofy Christmas Wednesday.  It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.  Mom will show you our decorations tomorrow.

Monday ish!


I am feeling very Monday ish today!  Youngest had a lovely Birthday yesterday doing not very much which is what he wanted to do! 


Present opening on Sunday morning, but not quite awake!!!!


Treacle helping but not keeping still so blurred movement!!!


She was having great fun with all the packaging.


Eldest came round in the afternoon, Girlfriend was poorly!


Always cuddles with Treacle when they are both home.



DH and I went out to dinner on Saturday evening to a place we had not been before, Browns and the food was nice but expensive even for Nottingham!!!  The reason we decided to try it because the building it is in is an old Solicitors Offices which I used to go to for meetings etc when I worked in Nottingham. 


The room we ate in had bookshelves where the old law books would have been stored.


The entrance with lamps in and the Christmas tree in Reception.

After dinner we walked into The Market Square, Nottingham where the Winter Village is.



The Council House, with the Winter Village.


The Food Stalls were all open with long lines waiting for any food you could imagine.


Market Street, looking towards The Theatre Royal with a tram coming down into the Square.


The Theatre Royal, sorry its blurred but we were quite away from it.


The Cabins of the Winter Village and their lights.

The evening was fortunately dry and quite mild, although today is colder and they are still forecasting snow this week, but on the hills mainly so we may escape this time. 

I have got a lot of things to do this week and hopefully catch up on some things I am a little behind on but not a problem.  Next weekend it is a swimming weekend, Saturday evening it is the final round of the Arena League for the older swimmers and they are hoping to win like they did last year.  DH and I are going and DH is actually compering the evening.  Sunday DH is out all day at the County Sprint Competition in Sheffield and I have some other things to do as well as Church.  So another busy weekend.

I hope you lovely lot have a wonderful week and all your Christmas preparations are going well.

Hugs, Susie xx

Hello December & Advent.


The final month of 2018 and the start of Advent.  Also the headlong rush to Christmas Day, although I am determined, as I have through the whole of this year, not to get stressed about it all and take each day as it comes.  Also enjoy the Festive Season so hopefully I don’t arrive on Christmas Eve tired, stressed and want the whole thing to be over!!!  I am sure some of you can relate to that!!!

Our tree is going up today and we will be decorating our home too, can’t wait.  I love doing this.  Also getting some more jobs done towards the Big Day.

Don’t forget there is my Christmas Planner on my side bar from last year with hints and tips of how to pull Christmas together, which you can download and use.

Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy First Day of Advent.

Hugs, Susie, DH, Eldest, Youngest, Girlfriend and Treacle xxxxx silhouette-1314467_1920
