The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlight of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law
The Weekend is finally here🎈
We got to listen to "Sounds of the 60s"
I had a nice hug and cuppa↓  
 Hubby and kids went off to have their hair cut.
 I pimped up the things with some nice patterns↓
 I finished doing the sideboard↓
 Early lunch↓
 Hubby stopped with one son, while I went out with other one.
 I went to see my dad.
 
 I got chatting to a man who was visiting his late wife's grave.
I made his day, as he hadn't spoke to anyone all day.
We nipped into B&M to see if they had any toilet rolls.
No was the answer.
Someone forgot the gin↓
 My younger brother had dropped round my late dad's things I wanted, when I got home.
 We moved some boxes to get the tea made↓
 I had to give hubby a rub down,
As his back was hurting from moving boxes about!
