Dennis the menace?

Hello happy smiley friends 😊

Now not sure any of you know who Dennis the Menace is?? Or is that a silly question? 

See Han and I both grew up with Dennis, is comic form and annuals... He is well loved in our family!  Now your all wondering why I am telling you this? Good question!!

Today... Being Sunday, Han and Kevin wanted to go to their first Comic Con event, or rather convention! So off we went! Jon and I had no idea what to expect or what we where going to see either! 

It was actually quite a good outing as you will see from my photos and if you want to see more you can pop along to Hans blog, link in side bar 😊

So I shall start with Dennis the Menace!! The artists were at there!! I saw their table and the comic and thought no?!? Then asked some questions, and the confirmed they were in fact the artists that draw Dennis!! Crazy for me as I have read Dennis in comics since I was very young! Quite surreal watching the artists draw Dennis in front of us!!

And they both very nicely posed for a photo for Han with her treasured signed Dennis! That will no doubt be framed and have pride of place on her wall!! It's funny because I think Han was as thrilled as I was to meet the artists! She just kept saying they actually draw Dennis the menace! Ha ha yup!!

So we wandered about and came across a lot of people (Joe public) dressed up, it's apparently what you do at these type of events! Lol no one told me! And if they had I have no idea what I would of dressed up as? Hmmmm maybe I should think on that as Han and Kevin want to go to more!! 

A few from wandering about....

Quick... By pass this one!! 

Kevin. Likes something called Adventure Time? And Hans friend was there too and dressed up.. Cool huh?!

Now not sure if any f you watch or follow the TV program Game Of Thrones?? Not me!! Seriously I. Don't! Han and Kevin do and that was one of the main reasons we went.... To get photos with them and chat to them too. No I apologise as I have no idea who they are! I guess if you want to know go look at Hans blog from the link in my side bar as she has their names! Lol

Have to tell you all something awesome that happened to me whilst there... I went along to one of the tables where the 'stars' are and chatted to someone.  Ha ha I say that as I don't know his name! It's the guy out of Game of Thrones! Han tells me he is the one that does everything! Now that tells me a lot!  I was just chatting away asking random questions and I saw one of his publicity photos... I just came out with it and said that photo was hot! Well it was! Rather I thought he was in that photo! Talking to him he did not look like that! See he had a lot of facial fluff!! He thought it rather funny so gave me the photo to keep! How lucky am I!! 

Here it is...

And close up.... Mmmmmmm

And then Kevin went and got her photo with him!! I now recal his character name is Pod? Maybe?! Yes you can see his facial fluff now! 

Apparently Han told me this person in Game of Thrones is dead now?! Hmmmm they like him! 

That was pretty much our Sunday outing!! 

Ooooh yes! Thank you ALL very much for your kind words of encouragement... I have been going to the pool, it's not getting any easier yet! Han promises me that she will take some photos tomorrow when we go I the evening! She just keeps leaving her phone in the locker! It's brilliant and I am loving being in the water. More on that soon!

Stitching....well nothing to show as yet, but maybe some very soon! Promise 😊

Oooooh something else to share with you all... If you are a regular reader of Hans blog you may already know!? I shall tell you all anyway! 

For as long as I can remember Han has always wanted a dog, a pug to be precise! And she wanted a boy to call it Lancelot! So recently Han bought one! Now we have a pug puppy in our home! Yipppeee another addition to the household! So I guess you want to see some photos...ok

Lancelot is rather cute!! I think there are more photos on Hans blog if you scroll back a few days! 

The last few photos I want to share with you all are the beautiful peonies in our front garden.... They are so pretty, the centres look like tissue paper!

And the last one is of some pretty lobelia that is growing on our ramp into our home...

It's not often I have pretty flowers to show you! 

I am sorry this post is so full of photos, I hope you liked them all? And sorry there is no stitching... Soon!!

Until I next pop in, hopefully with some David Lloyd photos!? Happy smiles to you all!! 


  1. What a fun post!
    Looks like the comic con was great fun! I don't watch Game of Thrones, but my husband and son watch it every Sunday. They think it's great! I love your beautiful flower pictures! How pretty!

  2. Looks like you had a good day .
    My DH always loved Dennis .
    Love the pretty flowers . Oh and your puppy is so cute.
    Have a lovely week.

  3. What a fun post, Jacquie! Looks like a fabulous time. (I don't follow Game of Thrones, either). Lancelot is adorable!!! Glad to hear you are still going to the pool. I hope it gives you relief and joy.

  4. I have never been to a comic con either Jacquie. How adventurous! Oh Lancelot!!!! I am off to view Han's blog for more of him. Squee!!

  5. WOW! I wonder where to start commenting from! I was going to say how good you look in the photo (which you want us to pass), then I saw Lancelot and I was so happy you have ababy pug! I met with two baby pugs in the States when I was visiting back in 2014 and they were so so cute! The peonies really look gorgeous! I loved the photo with the Star Wars figures too. What does not impress me from all the blogpost is the Game of Thrones stars because I don't watch it either. Both hubby and son say it is great and that I should but I haven't started yet!So all in all this was a great post!AriadnefromGreece!

    1. And also I wanted to add that I have never been to comic conventions although they happen here too but I would be thrilled to have Dennis the Menace sketched for me too!So it is right for Hana to be in awe!

  6. Nice to see you had a great family time !! The baby pug is so cute and your garden flowers are beautiful :)

  7. Looks like a fun time for you all. My hubby is called Dennis and he has a stuffed Dennis and Gnasher in his garage the kids bought him!

  8. Wonderful post Jacquie! Great to see you and Jon and the girls out and about!! I also grew up knowing Dennis the Menace!! I haven't watched Game of Thrones either but I know a lot of people love it!! Didn't rush by "that" photo, I enjoyed it!! lol!! Lancelot is so cute!!! he looks like he is trying to figure out what you are doing!! Beautiful flowers at your house!! Peonies are one of my favourites!! Sadly my attempts to grow them have failed!! Great post!!

  9. Great photos I'm glad you had fun! Lancelot is adorable :). I still haven't made it to a comic con and I'm a geek lol and used to live in Florida which was like comic con central. Oh well I'll make it there some day

  10. Looks like you had a great day which is wonderful. Your Dennis the Menace looks very different than the North American one.

  11. It looks like you had a lot of fun!

  12. Sounds like a lovely outing. Love the new puppy!

  13. Oh my! It looks like a lot of fun! Hugs.

  14. Finn the Human! We love Adventure Time here, Marceline is my favourite, and Gunther the Penguin.
    Looks like you all had a great day out. What a thrill to meet the Dennis the Menace cartoonists too.

  15. Glad you had such a good day and that you are doing better in general... Dennis the Menace is one of my favorite comics, too. :) Happy swimming (in the pool)!

  16. So many fun things in one post! I really want to take my teens to a comic con .... haven't decided which one yet. I've noticed a lot of crafty and creative things happening when it comes to cons, plus love comic books and their stories and all the fandoms of people getting excited, cons just seem like a happy place to go.


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
Smiles :)
