So Sunday's arrived and with it the rain! and lots of it, although here in north Hertfordshire it's not as bad as in other parts of the country.
But Poor Paul and Casper are off out at their first gun dog training class, so will be soaked by the time they return.

The week's been quiet on the doll front with just general house type things going on , although it is now just six days until the Chat n Snap! It's amazing how these things seems so far away and then suddenly it's down to just a few days!
A lot of what needs preparing cannot be done until the last minute, getting the food and drink, setting up etc.
This years display is quite basic to prepare as it's a Halloween Dance and the band and the suitably dressed Sashas and Gregors will be the stars of this scene, so it's just some suitable decoration to add to the display.

Elton John is playing with some of the display items! So I've used his photo for the reminder to all the attendee's and to up date the chat n snap blog.

It will be nice once it gets here as it's sort of limbo time, too early to start on the remaining things that need doing! But you want to get on and do them!

Although I still need to sort out my costume for the Halloween dance for one of the Sasha's or a Gregor, then of course deciding who gets to go! always a nightmare with so many who want to attend but only a few spaces.

In fact because this year's theme is Halloween by the time the Chat n Snap's over I'll  be well prepared for the actual day! Usually I forget all my Halloween decorations but this year I have found them to use at the CnS, so I'll be able to come back and put them out.

Then once we get through October it will be time to start planing for the next big event !

So don't forget your Halloween photos for the 20th's post.

Have a wonderful week, don't let anyone grind you down, pick yourself up and know you are better than them and go forward.



  1. I hope everyone has a wonderful time at the C & S! Wish we could be there.

  2. The band are getting very noisy - I have to remind them that the neighbours might complain about their late night rehearsing in the spooky darkness!

  3. I'm remembering with fondness the first three Cn'Ss (2013, 14 and 15) when I was well enough to be able to attend, enjoy and spend whilst visiting and staying at my daughter's home in Sussex. Many thanks Denise and Paul for hosting such a great event and I wish you every success for this next weeks gathering.
    So looking forward to seeing all the resulting photos!

  4. PS. Forgot to say that both Chon's first two Weimaraneras were trained as gun dogs... although the younger one didn't always want to let go of the prey after retrieving it.

  5. So looking forward to seeing snaps of the Halloween Dance! Hope everyone enjoys themselves. :)

  6. Have a most wonderful time Dee at your CnS! I will be thinking of you and your friends enjoying the Sasha time together. 😊 xxx

  7. The CnS has come around so quickly, I wish I were attending again as I certainly enjoyed the two occasions when I did go.
    I really look forward to seeing all the photos again afterwards :)
    Good luck to Caspar, that'll be something he can use to 'lord it over' his little brother, won't it!!!
