 Welcome to my Monday๐Ÿ˜‹
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow ๐ŸŽก
Hug and brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Woke up kids.
Gave hubby a nice sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he went to work.

Once I wrote my blog,
I was going to take out Sexy Beast for a nice ride... 
Some saw old friends again.
Got one tyre replaced.
(My late dad kept saying, check your tyres each week......)
I got the newspaper on the way back.
They asked where I had been.
I explained about my knee..
They said,"Painful?"
"Very," I replied.
Back home.
Still a chill in the air.
Someone wanted to buy my old pink laptop.
That's Christmas sorted out for us :)
Coffee time!
&
Quick read of the newspaper.

Push, Crash, Then Bang!

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it - Roald Dahl
 
Welcome to my Sunday๐Ÿ’œ
Nice brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Going to give Sexy Beast a run out this morning.
Nice and foggy out.
Checked the tyres.
Topped up with fuel.
Now to get the meat for Christmas Day.
(Now the freezers have been sorted out!)
Got some other meat to last a couple of months as well.
When we got home....
It's coffee time!
While I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby went to fetch the table and curtain tie-backs I bought.
It's going to look nice once I have finished doing it up.
Hubby then went to go the wii to do his exercise for an hour.
After tidying up around where the Sewing machine was based, the sewing table that I had done up, wouldn't fit under the dressing table!
Great!
Nether would the stool or the table I bought to day!
Tried to turn the television back on with the remote,
Hubby then moved something, and everything on the table went crash!
It looked like the ornament, hubby had bought for our anniversay had broke...
However it has landed in the basket of pot pourri \o/ instead.
The item that went crash then smash was my late mum's lady ornament which had pen holder combined.
(It used to be in hallway by the home phone before I had it)
After that fun, it was time for tea!
With season 12 of Hell's Kitchen.

Going Back For A Lot More.....

Excess on occasion is exhilarating.It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit - W Somerset Maugham
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling ๐Ÿ‘ฏ
Brew with warm hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby got my newspaper for me.
I gave him a sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he went to work.

Now for a light lunch...
With a bit of Hell's Kitchen.
Read the newspaper..
 Eddie Rabbitt was an American country music singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions", "I Love a Rainy Night" (a number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.
He would have been 79 years old ๐ŸŽˆ
He died aged 56 in 1998.

With a much needed cup of coffee.
 I got the blog post wrote from yesterday done.
I finished inside of the Sewing Table.
This is what it looked like before:
Now it looks like:
Just need to vanish the lid..and finished.
Gave hubby a wet ๐Ÿ’‹ when he came back.
I went up to Lidl to see if they had the balti pan which was on offer...
They didn't have one in, will try again tomorrow.
Gets back and has tea.
Back onto Hell's Kitchen season 11.
