Happy Monday!

Not normally two words which go together, happy and Monday, but I am today as Wimbledon has started!!!!!


This is where I get to revel in two weeks of wonderful tennis from about 11.00am until about 9.15pm, much to the Boys annoyance!!!  They like tennis but are so glad that they now have Amazon Fire Sticks so they can watch TV in their rooms instead of Wimbledon!!!! 


Treacle watches for the tennis balls, her favourite toy of all!!!!


Carnival has begun in the Village yesterday with Crowning of the Carnival Queen and picnic on the Park and the weather was nice and warm and not too hot.  Saturday was very hot with no breeze so the air was actually hot!  We did a few jobs in the morning but by midday had come inside and were doing swimming jobs in our Den where it was a little cooler.

Treacle the last time she entered the Dog Show with Youngest as Wimbledon Attendees!

It is set fair for the week of events, tonight being The Dog Show which I used to run.  It is quite nice now that I am not involved but great that the event I started is still going!  DH is commentating tonight.  He is away tomorrow all day and staying away overnight and won’t be back until mid-afternoon on Wednesday, when it is the Duck Race in the evening.

Treacle has had the door open all day from about 5.00am until 9.45pm and spent all of it out of doors so when she does actually come in, in the evening, she is absolutely tired out with all the fresh air and being on the go!!!!


Fast asleep on the patio!


DH and Treacle relaxing!!!!!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and looking forward to a good week.

Hugs, Susie xx

    I know exactly how you feel about tennis balls, Treacle! Me too☺ You look fabulous in your straw hat and white dress! Enjoy Wimbledon and your week!

    Enjoy you two weeks of Wimbledon!! So, do you use it as background noise or do you have to watch every hit of the ball? My mom used to love to watch Wimbledon, especially since one of my cousins played there (doubles and singles) back in the late 1960 and early 1970 – she made the quarter finals in singles and the semi-finals in doubles. Billy Jean King had taken her under her wing way back when she was a young teen, so you know she was good! I’ll have to see if the matches are being televised here.
