Today is “Dreich”!


Today has been cold, grey and quite misty but not in a good way! It is only now 4.30pm but it is already getting dark!!!  In Scotland this type of weather is called “dreich” and it definitely fits today.   I really don’t like these sorts of days.  


I had to run errands this morning including collecting Dollars for Youngest for his trip next week!  It is quite weird to think that both Boys will be in the USA, different States, and we will be here!  In fact I am quite jealous!!!  Eldest and Fiancè flew out today and Youngest will be flying out next Tuesday.

I am still sewing the backing down to the Baby Quilt I am making and am also getting some of my Christmas gifts done and planning four more to get done.  A couple of these will appear in the Blog Hop during November hosted by Carla at Creatin’ in the Sticks.  I will post details when we know who is hopping.


We are out for dinner on Friday evening with Youngest and Girlfriend and then Saturday and Sunday evening it is our Swimming Club Championships!  They are usually good evenings as it is just our Club although they don’t finish until late.  DH is commentating and I am doing the timing with another Sue!!!  At least we can get a few jobs done during the days.

I have managed to catch up with everything after last week and have planned a few more Christmas jobs to get done during the next few evenings!

I hope your Tuesday is going well.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Our yucky days are tomorrow and Thursday. Mom loves it when it’s dark out at 4:30pm when it gets closer to Christmas and the Christmas tree lights are lit.
    You are so on the ball getting your jobs done, Miss Susie!

    I hope the boys enjoy their time in the USA. Did you suggest that they pick up some fabric or thread for you whilst they are here and the prices are so much lower??? I don’t care for Dreich days either. Thankfully I have never lived anywhere that was an issue. Enjoy your weekend and congratulations on getting caught up on all your jobs!!
