Places we go and would like to go!

Happy Thursday!

Yes I know everyone is having a trying time at the moment but we have to stay as upbeat as possible!!!  DH and I have had a few trying issues this week with work and financial things which should have worked and were done before the lockdown but didn’t get sorted and now trying to get it sorted with less people and telephone lines not being answered has sent my blood pressure higher than normal!!!!!  We are also finding that the Covid-19 is seeming to be used as a good excuse for things not getting done!!!!! 😦


Anyhoo lets not dwell on this.  DH and Eldest are going to be busy outside building the decorative stone wall to hide the conrete at the front and today we are hoping that the stone will arrive to raise the hole.  I will show you pictures as we progress.


Having worked this morning I am doing home jobs this afternoon and I am also going to start the Spring Cleaning.  The weather is wonderful and sunny again today and it does so lift the spirits.

It’s #TBT today and ten years ago at Easter we were in Orlando, Florida for the Easter holidays.  Of course we got stuck for a further ten days courtesy of the little volcano in Iceland!!!! 

We had a brilliant three weeks and here are some pictures from the trip.  Eldest was 14 and Youngest was 10!


The above was at Fort Christmas Historical Park


We went to Discovery Cove for the day and had a great time.

I just love these pictures and the sky is so, so blue.  I really wish we were going this year and feel for anyone who had booked for Easter and is not now able to go.  We will all be back to normal soon and hopefully this thing will run out of steam very soon.


Here is your Treacle for the Day!!  She looks a little sleepy in this one as it was first thing in the morning!!!!!

Stay Safe All.

Hugs & Love Susie xxx

Happy Mother’s Day!


To All the Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts, etc out there we hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Over the last few years my Boys have taken me out for Breakfast but this year we will be staying in!!!  Have a lovely day everyone and stay safe.

Hugs, Susie, DH, Eldest, Youngest & Treacle xxxxx

Happy Valentine’s Day!


A Very Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone.

I hope everyone has a lovely day and sending out lots of love to everyone whether you are single, married, partnered or whatever.  We need more love in the World!


Over the last few days I have had a lot of visitors to my Blog and I just wanted to say Hello and Welcome and I do hope you have found some fun, facts and friendship here. 

Tonight DH is home but is busy setting up all the sound equipment for the weekend!!!  I will cook us a meal for when he has finished but I am used to this.  Just a shame that today falls on a Friday night and we could have gone out to the cinema but never mind!  I will spend the evening with Netflix instead!!!!!!!!!

I hope you all have a great weekend whatever you are up to.

Hugs & Love

Groundhog Day 2020.

Groundhog Day 2020 and will Phil see his shadow or predict an early Spring?  We, in the UK, have not had many very cold days but lots of rain so in some ways an early Spring would be great!


Here is Phil thinking about his prediction!


Do you see your shaddow Phil?


He has decided!


He Does Not see his shaddow it will be an early Spring!


Thank you Phil!

We shall see over the next six weeks if Phil is correct and it will be an early Spring!  The Spring bulbs we planted, a few have started to show but the wretched squirrel has pinched quite a few, so instead of a nice display of Spring bulbs it will be a bit sparse!!!!!!!

Happy Weekend & Groundhog Day!!!!!

Hugs, Susie xx

London Town!


“Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been? I’ve been to London to visit the Queen.  Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?  I frightened a little mouse under her chair.”

Have a Lovely Weekend All, see you back here on Monday with pictures!!!

Hugs, Susie xx

PS.  We love London even if certain other persons don’t!!!!!
