Gunpowder, Treason & Plot!

No not the American election although according to the headlines it just might be!

Yes it is Bonfire Night here in the UK.  In fact for some little B…..d at 2.00am it was Bonfire Night then and woke me up letting several fireworks off!!!  Especially as I had to be up at 4.00am with DH!

Today is also the first day of the new Lockdown so I suspect there will be a lot of fireworks going off.  We haven’t over the last few years done anything but decided as it is another lockdown we will get a few garden fireworks and let them off on Saturday night.  Fortunately Treacle is not bothered by them at all and in fact just barks at the noisy ones!!!

The Boys at the moment are still going to be working unless the work drops right off then they will both be furloughed again but DH and I will be working through again as our work is important for other things which need to be completed.  Of course we are hoping it will only be for the month but who knows yet.  I do know that when we are all released again the shops will be manic with everyone getting ready for Christmas!!!!!

I am still trying to sort our home and me out since I stepped down as the Covid Officer for swimming.  It has been quite a relief and I think I have had a bit of a reaction to it as I have been so tired since making the decision and quite lethargic in some ways, although I am very busy with work and everything else!!!!  I just need to spend some time and write some more of my lists and get things done!!!!  I also need to catch up on all the Blogs I read as they have been neglected over the last few months too!  As well as catching up with friends via email of course and our family too!  Which reminds me I will need to start writing our Christmas cards soon!!!!

As it is #TBT I would show you this picture of the Boys on Bonfire night.  I am sure you ahve seen it before as Eldest is pretending to be Harry Potter and Youngest is looking at him scared stiff!!!! It was November 5th 2007 and Eldest was twelve and Youngest was eight.

I hope you are having a Thrilling Thursday, Friday tomorrow yeah!!!

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    You just reminded mom about Christmas cards. She totally forgot all about them! I’m not a fan of fireworks so I am so happy that Bonfire night doesn’t happen here in the US.

    My pups aren’t bothered by fireworks, except to bark at the loud booms. Around the 4th of July, some people anticipate the holiday and set off fireworks…illegal in Nevada unless you are on a reservation. I’ve avoided reading or watching any of the news since the election. Until all votes are counted, I don’t want to stress over it. Stinks that you are being locked down again!! Sure hope both boys can keep working. Glad you and DH are keeping busy with work but I’m so glad you are done with swimming work – hope DH joins you soon!

    I am sorry you have to go into lockdown again. My husband is from Thailand and reads their online newspapers and all they are talking about is our election. I t will be interesting what happens when all is said and done.
