Not A Pissed Up Dancer!

“Well, don’t worry about it. We all get obsessed sometimes. The important thing is to drop it before you start yakking on and on to someone who doesn’t give a rats ass.” -
Martin Crane in Frasier.
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🍾
We are off to a Retirement meal tonight.
(Not bad, considering the last time we were invited out was nearly six months ago!) 
We go to town in the morning..
 We park in Car Park 1
 They have found us!!!
Once we got our bits,
We are a sneaky coffee to take out!
 I sorted out the Birthday Card.
 I think there are problems with putting on the next level of scaffold....↓
 Now to get ready to go out for our meal at the Retirement Party.
  I have matching dress and handbag...
We parked my the river.
We got some nice seats. 
While we were waiting for our meals to arrive.
One co-worker of my hubby's struck up a conversation with me.
I was asked by the person sitting next to me why I wasn't drinking alcohol.
My response was:
"I have been tea-total for six years!"
The co-worker piped up..
"I have been for 13 years!"
(I didn't realise it was a competition!) 
He does a lot of ballroom dancing.
Then he said:
"I don't want to be a pissed up dancer!"
He then started to scroll down on his phone looking at Facebook. 
My meal looked like meatballs in rich sauce.
Good job I ordered salad and a naan bread! 
The co-worker was still talking about himself for a good two hours.
So reminds of...
(me me me me me)
We went straight home after the meal.

Perhaps I should put lights up on the scaffording?

Now to enjoy some Friday Feeling🍾🍾

Out Goes the Old......

Coming home is one of the most beautiful things - Andre Rieu 
Welcome to my Thursday.
I'm still upgrading some bits of my house.
Some bits I have had for over 12 years and showing their age...
I went over to my brother's storage barn.
 Pity it's not a real car!
You play and I sing.
I bought off him a nearly new settee,
blue wicker chair, and a smaller kitchen table.
He will drop them round later, and take the old ones away too.
 More scaffolding goes up↑↑↑
I then start cleaning up the living room.
Once I come back from work,
I enjoy an ice cream in the garden.
  Hubby goes and does my dad's shopping.
I move out the old settee, and tv cabinet↓↓↓
 Lets hope I can fit the new sofa through the front door and fill the empty space in my Living room!
Oh dear the sofa won't fit through the front door! FFS!
Hubby comes back and puts it on its side...
It's just about gets the front door and living room!
It can fit 3 people on!
It was about midnight when my brother returned with the items I bought off Ebay.
TV Cabinet
Matching sideboard
More upgrading to be done!
Friday Feeling tomorrow 🍾🍾

Changing For The Better.

On Wednesday, when the sky is blue, and I have nothing else to do, I sometimes wonder if it's true That who is what and what is who. - Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A Milne  
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
We have lots to do this week.
Making full use of hubby as he has a week off from work.
Our lovely hamster, Ruby had past away during the night :( 
She had reached 2 and half years :'(
The scafford was slowly put up on the house.
  Now off to Dunelm to upgrade my ten year old lampshades.
 Then we had to drive over to Bidford on Avon.
As I won a Lloyd Loom storage unit to store all the wool I bought off my holiday.
I told the seller I make pom pom wreaths.
She said "I should sell them on at Stratford  market at Christmas. I would sell out!"
 (The one I made last year)
Now to fill the Lloyd loom up..↓
 After I finished work.
Time to chill to a good film↓
 Now to put up the new lamp shades!
 Sorted out my welsh dresser.
 Now I planning to upgrade the bathroom,and the some things in the living room...
And it's not going to cost the earth either!
