Although we live in a village which is semi-rural we are not in the back of beyond but the amount of power cuts we have is amazing. The other day for no reason the power went off, came back on for a second, off again, on again and then off for an hour! Of course at this time of year it gets dark early so we were plunged into darkness. Having now lived here for over twenty years I am prepared and have battery camping lanterns stored. However the one side affect of this was my computer threw a wobbly and so I have had no computer since Tuesday! So sorry for lack of posts but I was not on line!!!!
We have decorated for Halloween but I just have a couple of more things to do and then I can show you! Quite enjoying watching spooky films on TV whilst ironing, which was my job last night as I had a huge basketful and people needed clothes for the weekend.
I am not political in my posts but like 9/11 the attack this week on Israel has been appalling. It has always been, since I was very young, a very conflicted area which is down to politics and religion but innocents being slaughtered, especially babies, is dreadful.
Whether you want to or not, Chirstmas things are happening! I am getting emails about booking things in time for Christmas, emails about Christmas goods now being available, emails about Christmas food on the shelves! So if you are one of those persons who does not do Christmas until December 1st then I think you will find Christmas is here already!!! Last night I got a request from my lot about some mince pies; And so it begins!!!
I hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to. DH has a swimming event all day tomorrow so I will be hopefully doing some more quilting and of course getting ready for next week. Jayne and I are going out for lunch, DH has the Charter Fair where he commentates on Thursday, a swimming event on Friday evening and then we are out with friends on Sunday for lunch, so a lovely week to come. Work as always too of course!
Hugs & Love, Susie & Coco xx
