Ha Ha Laughed The Clown

Give me a treat, or leave me alone.It's Monday! - Paige
Welcome to the Wobbly Work Wheel Monday 🎡
I'm lucky to have a week off from Job 1.
(Still got plenty of things to catch up with)
 Nudge, then tea in bed...
  Gave hubby a big 💋 before he went off to work..
The kids had a little lie-in,
Then I opened their windows....

I looked out of the window,
The washing was drying...↓↓
Nice bit of coffee to start Monday with...
I updated my blog....
After a quick lunch,
It was time to use the mouth battery!
 What nice music are we going to listen to?

Nips into Boomerang 
To see if they have got a Gas Cooker for sale.
No was the answer...
"Oh well, I will keep on looking......"

My kids played happily with her kids.
Had a lovely catch up :)
