The Fireworks!!!!

Last weekend finished with a bang when we set off some fireworks. The poor dog was not impressed, in fact she had a terrible day if you include the visit to the vets for her booster jab!!
As the week has gone on she seems to have become used to the noisy fireworks but by next year she will be back to her usual scary self!!

I have had a busy week, a couple of courses out of the county, one in Cambridge at the Anglia Ruskin University. That was hard to find and even harder to find a parking space. The following day I was in London at Kings Cross which was easier to find, but the trains were all over the place. There had been a break down in Huntingdon and somehow that managed to effect trains in and out of London, so I waited on the platform with Hundreds of other people and when the train turned up it was standing only all the way to Kings Cross!! Once I had arrived it was a 10 minute walk to the venue, which took me twenty minutes as a had no idea where I was going!!
I had a very good day, the course was interesting and  can see that it would be something I would be interested in doing in the future. I'll have to wait and see if the chance comes up!

Madeline bought me these beautiful orange roses, they have lasted the whole week and now they are out they are stunning. Orange roses are the best!!

This morning it has been very wet and miserable weather, we popped around to see Mum and Dad and on the way back I noticed these hardly little flowers by my front door. There are quite a few of them braving the cold. I expect they will be OK until we get a hard frost. 

This weekend seems to be the weekend for all the TV adverts for Christmas to hit the screens. Some of them are great, I oddly like the Iceland one, a Willy Wonka homage!!! On the plus side its beginning to feel a  lot like Christmas. Can't wait until I go on the 'girls' trip to Hamburg. We have done many Christmas Markets, but this will be the first real German market in Germany.

I always think time speeds up at this time of year - too much to do and not enough time. Enjoy your trip :) xxx
