Playing With My Brother Again!

 There is only one thing in the world worst than being talked about, and that is not being talked about - Oscar Wilde
Welcome to my Thursday 🎄
Nice warm hug.
Followed by Brew and breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I go.
On goes the 2 winter hats, and winter gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Oh dear, it's going to be like this morning.
Point blank not stopping and going under the stick. Then they stop in the keep clear area, which makes it a bit difficult to cross the kids over.
At least I survived in one piece!
I goes back to Sexy Beast.
I starts to write out my friend's Birthday card.
I got chatting to my friend who is recovering from a op on his hand.
(It is still really enlarged)
He has been on his spin bike every day, cycling 7 miles a day...
I laughed and said:" I can do just about 3 miles, when I get on mine!"
He is having his other hand done next month.
Told to take care.
I wrote out my friend's Christmas Card.
Then I go and deliver them.
He opens the front door and thanks me for his cards.
Then off to get my newspaper before going home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
Gets out the Sewing machine.
Changes the yellow thread to blue on the bobbin.
Threads the needle.
Now for a much needed coffee.
Does the bathroom curtains.
Just waiting on the linings to arrive from Amazon.
Lunchtime.
What's behind the Advent Calender door today?
Time for part two.
On goes the 2 winter hats, with gloves.
I turn on my lights and head down to chat with my two friends for a good rabbit!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start.
It went quite well, except a few just driving under my stick for the sheer fun of it!
Hometime.
The linings arrived.
Fixed them to the back of the curtains.
Up they went.
I put the fish in the oven.
Hubby got some chips on the way back home.
He had a sloppy wet 💋 off me.
Tea is served.
Our son hung up his Jigsaw in the the picture frame on his wall.
The picture that was replaced by his jigsaw is on my bedroom wall.
I looked into today's newspaper.

Steven  Forrest  was a Scottish singer-songwriter, better known as Steve Bronski.  He was a co-founder and keyboard player of the group Bronski Beat, known for the single Smalltown Boy and Why? As well as being a musician he was well known as an LGBTQ activist and was openly gay himself from an early age.
Born in Castlemilk, Glasgow Bronski worked in his youth as a labourer. He lived in a flat in Brixton, London during the early formative period of Bronski Beat with his fellow musicians. Later on he squatted with partner and bandmate Larry Steinbachek in Camberwell, London. Following the break up of the band he lived in Thailand for many years, as well as Paris, France, before returning to the United Kingdom.
He sadly died in 2021 aged 61. 
We had a early night without watching televison.
Sleep Tea Time.
Off to bed early ....Zzzzz
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
