Never Want To Bake Another One!

Death is only going to happen to you once; I don't want to miss it - Jim Morrison.
Welcome to my Monday 🍪
I had a warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
However I have broken up for the Christmas Holiday, hubby is still on his Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 until Friday!
I give him a sloppy wet 💋 before he leaves.
I get up, thermal vest goes on.
I have someone coming around to check the smoke alarms, and fuse box.
First up, a coffee is needed.
All the smoke alarms gets replaced.
I even have one fitted in the living room.
The kitchen light was replaced.
The fan was replaced in the bathroom.
As the previous one, (I paid for) if splashed with water could have caused a shock!
He checked all the sockets he could get to.
(He was pleased with our new bathroom light, as he was going to replace with the same as I have got)
Time for some lunch!
Now to make mince pies....
Tea at 3
I got through 4 packs of shortcrust pastry.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 👄 for his trouble.
(He has snooker tomorrow)
Meat Free Stir Fry.
Another batch of meat pies made.
Then a Mincemeat Tart.
Then looked inside today's newspaper.

The traffic behaved themselves again.
I got chatting to my friend again about 60s music until it got well dark.
I said to him, "He will have to  pick up his dog as he is refusing to move!"
I gets home, one chore hadn't been done...
