Boys Away!


Both of our Boys are now on Holiday in the USA! Take Care of Them for Us!!!!


I think I actually met myself coming back the other day!!!!  The last few days have been a whirlwind of work and sorting Youngest out to go away and of course the weekend spent at the swimming pool with the Championships!  We got there both days at 2.00pm to sort the timing system out and by the end of Session one on the Saturday it crashed!  So on Sunday Sue and I were promoted from the cupboard where we usually sit to where DH sits on poolside to avoid too many connections between the computers!  It worked and we didn’t have any problems.  We also finished early but by the time we had packed up it was 8.30pm!!! 

We got home and had a meal with Youngest and Girlfriend as they would be travelling down to Gatwick, where they are flying from, on Monday evening for today’s flight! 

So for a few days it will be just DH, Treacle and I until Eldest and Fiancé get back at the end of the week.  Friday evening we have a business dinner to go to and then Saturday jobs to do before Sunday when DH is again at another swimming pool commentating for another swimming club!!!!  It’s just this time of year!!!!

Here are a few more pictures from their trip to New York.  I am loving living this trip with them!!!!!


They went and visited the Intrepid as Eldest loves anything military.


They went on the Staten Island Ferry, I love the blue of the sky!


The Brooklyn Bridge below.


They went for Afternoon Tea at The Plaza.

I can’t wait to see all the other pictures when they get back.

Treacle has been a little distracted with all the comings and goings but today settled into her basket for her morning snooze. 


I am still busy getting on with making things food wise for Christmas and this week it will be the Christmas puddings and start making the mince pies.  They freeze really welll so I can get them stashed away and also the Christmas cookies. 

I am also going to make some Christmas Chutney this year which goes really well with cold meats and I can also give jars of them as gifts.

I hope your Tuesday is going well.

Hugs, Susie xxx

    Looks like Eldest and Fiancee are having a wonderful time in NYC!! They are having some beautiful weather as well…always a plus! Will Youngest be renting a car in Florida and trying to drive on the right side of the road or will he depend on taxis? I have been watching a bunch of youtube videos of car crashes in the UK, trying to get a feel for driving on the left and what not to do if I ever try driving there myself!! Staying off the motorways and looking both ways at roundabouts…I wouldn’t want to get into a yelling match with someone because I don’t think I would be able to understand them!! Yay for getting ready for Christmas!!!
