Getting The Make Over Done Part One

I've been on more laps than a napkin - Mae West
Welcome to my Saturday 🏮
I was up early to get two lamp shades from Sainsburys...
I listened to "Sounds of the 60s" on the way to Sainsburys..
I got the lamp shades....↓
Back home.
Brew with breakfast.
Day 1 of tidying up my late father-in-law's house.
Drops off son at work.
I get dropped off at Dunelm to get some nice bits for the house.
Once I paid for it all.
Hubby comes and picks me up.
Now to explore the house and garden.
While I was in the garden,
I heard a man shouting out of the window from next door:
"I hope they are going to fucking clean that shit hole up!"
That's nice, perhaps he should come round for a word with me about it,or I go round and see him!
I started to tidy up the small bedroom.
New lamp shade.
New Voile up in the window.
New rugs down.
Next stop was the bathroom.
I put up our spare shower curtain.
I put new bathmats down in the bathroom.
Then I put some houseplants in the kitchen.
I covered the gas cooker.
Next step was to put up the table and chairs in the Dining Room.
Put two pictures that my parents had in their Living Room. 
They are above the mantlepiece↓
We did enough today.
Time to go home for tea!
Sleep Tea.
Straight to bed as we were both so tired.....

In Need Of An Extra Amount Of Friday Feeling!

He has love bites on his mirror - Kathy Lette 
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Another Bank Holiday Weekend \o/
Lots to get on with....;)
Nice big hug for Friday.
Brew with breakfast.
No thermal vest needed.
Now out of the door...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
The hall car park wasn't open.
So I parked around the corner.
I gets the newspaper before I slip into my winter coat. As the weather can't be trusted....
Puts my lights on.
Now ready to start.
There might too much Friday Feeling about...
As cars are not stopping and going under my stick!
I hope it gets better for the afternoon shift!
Finished in one piece.
Back home to pick up hubby.
Going out for coffee.
Nice bit of coffee with nibble!
Then off to the Charity Shop for bargains.
Their card machine isn't working, so it's a good luck I had some cash on me.
Found some pictures that will be useful to put in my late father-in-law's house.
I chatted with the postman who was delivering on my old walk(I used to do).
Good half an hour of chat.
Then it was back home.
They have found me! 
We had a sandwich for lunch.
Hubby was going shopping with younger son while I do my afternoon shift.
Gave him a sloppy wet one.
Summer coat and summer hat time!
I turned on my lights.
Now it's rabbit time with my friends.
We enjoyed ourselves in the sun shine.
When  it was time to say goodbye,
Wished them a good Bank Holiday Weekend.
Frantic Friday, cars backing up, cars not stopping.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Hubby had picked up two items I go off the internet.
After putting the shopping away.
Hubby went with younger son, collected the Dining room table and chairs and dropped it all round at his Father-in laws house ready for the big tidy up over the weekend.
While brushing the pavement...
The screws are back again!
I hope Karma bites them on the arse for dropping them about!
Hubby comes back and just in time!
Tea was ready!
Quick look in the newspaper.

Nice warm hug to start Thursday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
No thermal vest on today \o/
All ready to go...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
I get my neighbour's magazine and my newspaper before I got my winter coat on.
It was too warm for gloves.
Once my lights went on.
Now for the fun bit.
Some car drivers on the otherside are failing to stop, I can still reach over and give them a BOING!
It's cloudy with no sunshine yet.....
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
I start getting things for the late father-in-law's house for when people look around it.
Coffee time.
We has sandwiches for lunch.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
There was vaccines given out at the hall, so I parked around the corner. I turned on my lights.
Both of my friends appeared.
Time for a little rabbit.
Once it was time to start my shift.
I said goodbye to them all.
Let's hope I have a better shift than I have been having.
Oh dear the 75+ people are having fun trying to drive. At least they know how to stop!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Home time!
We drop kids off to help Joe deliver leaflets.
We nip into Sainsburys and get more bargains for hubby's late father-in-law's house.
Gets back home to unpack it all.
The Budda I bought is going over to hubby's late dad's house over the weekend.
