June Birthday.

I had a lovely Birthday last week, even though it was a Monday!!!  DH and The Boys took me to our local Italian Restaurant for dinner and it was great.  I was on my own for most of the day as they were all out at work but at least it was quiet!!!!  I had some lovely gifts a bottle of my favourite perfume “Coco” by Chanel (!), I also had one of those presents which it was given to me on my Birthday but it is for the family really (!); a new garden shed!  We bought our old one when we first moved in, twenty years ago now, and it was getting in a state so we have bought a new one and they have been busy assembling it.

I also got a surprise in that they bought be an old hand Singer sewing machine from 1945.  I will get some pictures of it but it is in amazing condition and has been really looked after.  At the moment I don’t really have anywhere to put it but eventually it will go in my sewing room when I get one.  It is very like the one my Grandmother used to sew on but Granddad had converted hers to electricity, as he was an engineer and it was the sort of thing he did! 

Last week flew by in a haze of work which I am still trying to catch up on now.  I still have jobs at home to do as well and those two memory quilts to finish but I am hoping that this week and next I will be able to catch up on it all.  I hate being behind in my jobs!!!!!

DH & The Boys went on Saturday to Goodwood Festival of Speed which was their Christmas present from me to them.  They had a great day seeing all the cars go up the hill ( it is a Hill Climb event) and the weather was fantastic for them.  Here are a few more pictures of the day.

The Entrance always has an amazing sculpture with cars.

Coco went to her second Puppy Socialisation Class on Saturday but I will let her tell you all about it tomorrow!!!

Carnival began in the Village yesterday and this year we have a Carnival King instead of a Queen for a change and of course it is back for the first time in two years so we think there will be a good attendance at all the events.  It will be a long week though!  

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and a great week to come. 

Hugs & Love, Susie & Coco xx

    We can’t wait to see your new garden shed and your new vintage sewing machine! What an amazing place for the boys to hang out. I’m sure they all had a great time! Happy Monday! We hope you have a great week!

    Dinner out is always a treat!!! Looking forward to seeing the new garden shed in place – it will be so organized and look so nice. Oh, all the boys would have fun at the Goodwood Festival…I want the green car there! Ohhh, the sewing machine!!!! A hand crank, so cool!! I’m looking for a treadle to fit a cabinet I have. So glad you had a lovely birthday.
