Too Much TNT!

 Some people can't be fooled on April Fool's Day because they were fooled too many times during their entire lifetime.”
Akash B Chandran 
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ‘Ί
Warm hug and brew.
Hubby had to leave early as he was having his Covid vaccine this morning.
Gave him a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left.
I woke the kids up ready for school.
I got dressed and ready to sew up my son's pocket on his coat!
When I finished, he didn't want to wear his coat, even though the weather is turning from warm to bloody cold!
Gave my kids sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left.
I added more recycling to the green bins before they were emptied.
Fed the birds outside.
Now first day of freedom!
My turn to get the newspaper!
I just turned out of my road, a great big TNT lorry wasn't stopping, I had to resort to parking on the pavement or I would have been hit!
No parking spaces outside the shop either!
One car blocked in a van that was trying to get off the parking space in front of the shop.
I said my hellos to everyone in the shop, and was glad to see everyone.
I went past my dad's house, it was still looking like a public car park.
On the way back home, the same TNT lorry was trying to get out of my road. As there was cars parked also at the start of the road, the space to try to squeeze past the lorry was tight. The TNT lorry driver got out of his cab and said to me, "You can get through the space!"
Looking at the marks on side of the lorry, he has squeezed through some spaces and took paint off some vehicles!
I just got through the space, without touching the black BMW parked on my left and the lorry on my right.
I was glad to get home! 
I was glad of the a much needed coffee!
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Still no luck on how the house sale of my late dad's house is going, no one telling me anything :(
Finally get to lunch. 
Next to declutter is the draws of my late parent's sideboard. The other half will be done tomorrow with hubby.
2 black bags of stuff later....
I finally found a photo of my late mum I had been looking for.
It was took back in 2000 when we were flying out for a holiday in Benidorm.
My mum passed away in 2013 :'(
Tea at 3.
I had a little play with Henry...
Hubby came home, he was feeling fine after having his jab....
I gave him a wet πŸ’‹
He gave me one back!
Nice Veggie tea.
My friend enjoyed his Birthday card and presents I got him :)
We caught up with Judge Rinder.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
