Being Spoilt!

 Pierre de Beaumarchais
Welcome to my Sunday love 💓
Nice bit of adult time....
Then it was breakfast with brew.
Thermal vest goes on.
Off to see my parents with more flowers.
I hope that gold-digging brother doesn't take anything else off my parent's grave!
Then to pick up kids as we are having a meal out.
(Postponed from last Sunday)
We were 10 minutes late due to traffic....
Table was set ready.
Gravy and veggies.
My beef dinner!
Yum yum.
Drove home, dropped one son off.
We had to get more compost, the nearest place was B&Q.
More compost and flowers off the reduced stand.
Hubby was tired after driving to and from the meal, so he went off for a nap.
I carried on doing some more gardening for 2 hours.
Garden still looking a bit empty.
I'm sure I will get time for more gardening during the upcoming Easter Holidays..
(If it doesn t snow!)
After that big meal at dinnertime.
Time for something not so big....
Then I had hot shower.

Getting Lots Of Help From Vick!

One way to help the weather make up its mind is to hang out washing - Marcelene Cox
Welcome to my Sunday (Not giving any) 💓
Only woke up once during the night.
That Lavender Pillow Spray I had for my Birthday knocked me straight out.
The Strange Dreams about Royal Mail started again.
Once I woke up, all the windows got opened throughout the house.
Brew with Breakfast.
I put the coffee machine on abit later.
(I was no mood to get up just yet)
I enjoyed a hot strong coffee..
Before I fell asleep again.
Hubby went off for a walk to fetch the newspaper and post our son's PCR test.
When he came back, I had found the need to get dressed.
Puts lots of Vic on to help with blocked nose.
The sun is out.
The washing from earlier, went out on the line.
I finished off the soup.
Afterwards carried on doing some gardening.
Hubby loaded up his car with the garden waste, and took a trip to the council tip.
I made us some cups of tea, and waited for his return.
It was nice to enjoy some Vitamin D.
Hubby put the meat in the oven.
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
We had a roast pork roast dinner.
(too slow with the camera this time)
Later on, hubby took a Covid test ...
His was negative.
Next go was mine.
The second line appeared before it chance for the first to appear!
No Wobbly Work Wheel for me tomorrow!
I let my boss know and the NHS know too.
One minute I am freezing cold, next I am so warm. The raging sore throat doesn't help!
Carried on watching:
