At Least The Bird Is Singing This Time!

Life is a mirror.If you frown at it,it frowns back; if you smile it returns the greeting - William Makepeace Thackeray
Woo hoo 
It's back 🎈
Lots to get for the return back to school in 2 weeks time!
(Where has the time gone???)  
I had a lovely hug and cup of tea in bed↓
  Nice t-shirt to put on..↓
 With Spiderman Earrings.
Finally got the kids up!
Now to get out for a ride in Sexy Beast.
 It's getting warm↗↗↗
Time to get some school uniform↓

 I recognised one of the mothers in there, as a old school friend. Who got in touch in 2013, and asked how much would I charge to make an Aston Villa Birthday cake for her son.
(Like I made my son for his 8th Birthday)
 I said "£30."
She said her son didn't want a cake.
Found out later, her Aunt had done him a swimming cake for nothing.
Oh well.....
Back to buying the new uniform.
2 bits of uniform = £44
Now off to town to get more...
View from Car Park 4
 Visits the Uniform Bank,
Gets a large pe top and shorts for one of my sons.
We visit the food man on the market.
He is playing some good tunes...
 He then put another song,
Which my youngest remarked...
"Is this you know who?"
"It is!"
While my kids printed off some homework.
I caught up on the newspaper
 We got a new pair of size 12's school shoes.
They didn't have another pair for the other son...
The size 13 pe trainers wasn't very comfortable either.
I need a coffee now...↓
 Quick read and drink of coffee,
Before we leave↓
 It's getting warm now↗↗↗
 Early lunch↓
It was too late to do any painting!
Unloaded the dishwasher 
Loaded it back up.
I got some size 12 new shoes off Ebay.
I put a offer in for some size 13 pe trainers.
The man wants the auction to end and declined my two offers...
*I won another pair instead.*
(I will see the trainers stop at the price he put the trainers on, when the auction finishes)
The covers for two light switches came.
Now off to a happy place of work.
I didn't realise it was that hot when I got back home and was all nice and sweaty!
 Sucky time!
 Hubby came back from work early.
Nice hug and big 💋 for him.
While he went to do my dad's shopping.
The bird went in.....
Law and Order went on...
 Moved onto season 16 now
The bird started singing...
(Makes a change from me!) 
 Now off to do the final job of the week,
With some good music↓
 It was nice to take off my shoes...
I enjoyed one more episode of:
with some sleep tea...
Then off to bed for some snuggles and more....💋💋💋💋

Mellow Yellow

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new Landscapes,but in having new eyes - Marcel Proust
Welcome to my Thursday....
I am hopefully on the painting wheel 🎡 later.
But first the first hug and cup of tea of the day...
 I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
Now the fun to get up our kids before 10am! 
 As one is delivering more newspapers, while the other son is painting my dad's fences!
I drop off both sons.
I find out my dad has no paint...
Off to another Man's cave...
 The fence paint was knocked down to £10 from £12. Plus 2 fence brushes.
Grand total £32!
I left one son painting and the other son delivering his newspapers.
By the time I got home, the morning had vanished.
I had a quick lunch↓
 Got to get the painting down the stairwell done↓
 Then off to a happy place of work

After I put the evening meal to cook,
I caught up on some more:
 Now to serve up Meatballs!
This meal only costed me £5 to make :)
I caught up with episode 2 of:
Interior Design Masters
After a tough first week transforming show homes, with nine designers left, they return to Michelle's design studio to find out about their next challenge. 
Michelle tells them that she is sending them to a hotel in Bournemouth, where they each have a bedroom to design in their own particular signature style. She wants to see their own unique styles coming through and find out who they really are as designers. But there is a twist - this hotel isn't any standard seaside hotel, it is called Hotel Chocolate, and has a strong chocolate theme to delight their guests
I think the wrong one went home!
Then off to final job of the day..
Once back home,
Night clothes on,
A little bit of news,
Sleep tea,
Warm rub down......

Never The Twain!

The past is never where you think you left it - Katherine Anne Porter
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐪
Playing with lots of white paint today!
Nice hug and tea to start the day.
 I gave hubby a big hug and a sloppy wet 💋 before he left the house.
I enjoyed a coffee with vitamin C↓
 Once yesterday's blog post was wrote and published.
I had a quick look in the newspaper.
 Now to paint all the radiators in the house.
  All had one coat of paint added to them.
Younger son did his paper round.
While the radiators were drying.
Early lunch!
 Added a second coat of paint to all the radiators.
 I got changed to go the the happy place of work.
 I took in the cleaning supplies
Some co-workers were talking about men, boyfriends and husbands.
The answer one replied to the other one not having a man at the moment was:
"Never the Twain shall meet!"
I got home to get the evening meal ready 
 We had a Roast Chicken dinner.
It cost me £5 to feed us four!
Caught up on some:
Off to work with some good music..
Caught up with the final part about Jade Goody.
 Now to use some  Hump 🐫....

Stuck For Time!

The future depends on what you do today - Mahatma Gandhi
Welcome to my Tuesday.
The plan is to get lots done in the house!
(I was hoping as normal!)  
 Had the warm hug and tea to start the day!
I gave hubby a wet 💋 and hug before he left the house.
I meanwhile had to get some more milk,
As no coffee for me during the day otherwise!
 At least the temperature is going up↗↗↗

A new kitchen bin too!
Quick nibble of toast and coffee↓
I put all the things back on the bathroom shelves.
The bathroom cabinet looks nice after being painted↓ 
 I got yesterday's blog post wrote and posted.
Light lunch time.↓
Read some of today's newspaper↓

(It's going to be tomorrow now!)
I caught up with one episode of:
Before going to the happy place of work!
 I have my deliveries to help upgrading the house!

I gets back and puts the evening meal on.
Hubby had a nice big hug and a big 💋 on his forehead when he came home.
After tea,
We left the house to do more food shopping↓ 
First stop was back to Morrisons to get some cleaning supplies for my jobs.
Next to a very quiet Lidl. 
 We got a box of fruit and veg for £1.50!
They are "Too Good To Waste".
 We got back home.
Unpacked the shopping.
Off to my final job with some great music!
Once I got back,
I caught up with the news...
I had to drag a tired hubby off to a warm bed......
