Well with all the news about the virus and the fact that here in the UK the peak is between ten and fourteen weeks away, which takes it to the week of my Birthday in June!!! It really does feel like the sky is falling!! They are saying that 95% of people in the UK will get it which makes me wonder why we are bothering to read the news, you just may as well wait and see what happens!!! Of course we as a family are doing everything we can not to get it but how far do you go?
We already have had business meetings and exhibition’s cancelled or postponed and one big swimming event has been cancelled. DH is out this weekend at another swimming event but we wonder if people will just not turn up. I am due to go out with the Tangent Ladies on a river cruise on Saturday afternoon and I am due to go over to Nottingham in the morning, but you now start to second guess yourself as to whether you should be doing any of it!!! I think you just have to take each day as it comes.
The following weekend is Mother’s Day here in the UK and I have said to the Boys we will do something at home. They have in the last few years taken me out for breakfast but this year we will stay in!
Anyway I have far more important things to worry about; like our toaster which has now decided to launch the toast into the air! Sometimes Treacle is very lucky and it lands on the floor, however this morning it landed on the counter top! Now can anyone tell me why this perfectly good toaster which has never done this before, is trying to be the first toaster to launch toast into outer space? I mean really?

This week saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex complete their final events as senior Royals and then the Duchess flew back to Canada. There has been a lot written since their announcment over why they have left and we, as a country, are still being accused of being racist against the Duchess which I take great exception to. Only they know the real reasons why but my personal view is that the Duchess has a view of what it was going to be like to be Royal and I don’t think it lived up to her expectations. However I do wonder in a few years time whether they will come to regret their hasty decision like the Duke & Duchess of Windsor did!
March has definitely roared in this year, it was blowing a gale last night and lashing the windows with rain and we had some hail today!!! Hopefully it will go out like a lamb at the end of the month!!!
As you can tell from the picture above Treacle is really worried!!!!!!!!
As it is Thursday here is a #TBT from 2009!!! Eldest is 13 and Youngest 9!!! We were in London for the Easter school holiday and this was the Fire Power museum where they could dress up as well as tour the exhibits!!! We had a great two weeks!!!
I hope wherever you are in the World you stay safe and healthy.
Hugs & Love Susie xx
