Getting Lots Of Big Love

If I had my life to live over again,I would have a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week - Charles Darwin
Welcome to my Thursday.
I had a nice reminder appear on my timeline on FB.
A little bit of Throwback Thursday
  I'm at Middle School & sitting on the front row.
Back today...
The sun is back for now..
  Still feeling cold.
Not quite cold enough for the thermal knickers, or leggings but the jumper will be worn... 
Nice hug and a cup of tea to keep warm with..
Before everyone left,
I gave out wet 💋💋💋💋 to everyone before they left.
 Coffee and Vitamin C time.
I gave the living room a good tidy up.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast..
 
 Frigging Cold↑↑↑↑
My 🍭 boss and wanted to see my Birth Certificate..
(Right to Work in the UK now)
We postponed our meeting for the afternoon, until I can put my hands on my Birth Certificate!
I hopefully will start my 🍭 job soon :)
I had a quick look in the newspaper↓

It would have been Eddie Cochran's 81st Birthday 🎈
He died aged 21 in 1960.
Chubby Checker, American singer-songwriter (The Twist) is 78 years old 🎈
 Lindsey Buckingham, American guitarist and lead singer (Fleetwood Mac) is 70 years old.🎈
(One of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs is at the end of this blog post)
While singing along with Fleetwood Mac, I looked across the fields of fun...

 
 I had a nice red shiny face,
Just like my t-shirt I was wearing..↓
One caterpillar was making a quick get away↓
 I was singing along with some great 70s hits on the way home.

 
 I used up my £5 Bodyshop voucher on something nice↓
 After I came back from the Happy Place of Work, 
I make a nice bit of tea↓
 Meatballs with Linguine
Then we popped into Aldi to get some supplies.
Some nice wreaths to make↓
 
 Weaving Kit↓
I gets back to do the final job of the day with some great music↓
 
 Then we caught up with Your Fired.
We watched one episode of Law and Order which I have always remember when the suspect gets off, tries to strangle a member of the jury (he was seeing during the trial and afterwards)
She grabbed some shears and stabbed him to death.
 Now to enjoy some Big Love 💗💗

Just Add Glitter...

Beauty is only a light switch away - Austin Powers
Welcome to my Sunday 🎈
I had a much needed lie-in.
Recharge of the batteries!
 
 Not as much sun as yesterday...
Nice to start of Sunday with.....↓
Just as we were heading off to do some food shopping....the rain started...
(Good job I had my rain mac on!)
 
 We pop into Aldi's...
Look what I found↓
 I will make my own wreath for Xmas!
Now for coffee and nibble↓
 We went into Morrison's afterwards.
I spotted an ex-boyfriend who I went out with in the late 1990's.
(He hadn't aged well at all!)
Back home to unload all the shopping!
 Found a great badge to wear on my apron at one of my jobs↓
 It was nice to have some liquorice and Peppermint tea :)
 Then we chilled catching up with season 10 of:
 We had a lovely tea of Meatballs, Garlic,Red Onion,Chopped Tomatos with Linguine
  We caught up with Dragon's Den.
 My prodigal brother didn't turn up today to see our dad.
(I guess he has got the car he wanted,
Why bother to come up and see his dad!)
My other brother hasn't been seen for a week.
My hubby says to my dad:
"It shows up people, if you see your son-in law more times than you see your sons in one week!"
Everytime I go round, I kick up a wasp's nest,
& people want words in my ear! 
All the uniforms were ready for tomorrow.
Both son's are baking at school this week.
My Kenny will have to stay where he is until I start on my cake next week...
1-2-3.... before I mount the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow....

Wow,They Look Good!

I can live for two months on a good compliment - Mark Twain
After going to bed at 2am this morning...
I had a much deserved lie-in!
Our kids were doing their good deed of the month by doing goal-keeping for the Redditch lions at the Green Fair around the Near-by lake today
Once they got up, 
Dressed,had breakfast, they were dropped off.
We had to do some errends ourselves.
 
We had to get another washing line,
As the last one was cut down to get the scaffording up.
Nice things in B&M.
Some people were sniffing the bottles of Zoflora.

So many lovely smells!
I got my dad's newspaper from Sainsburys.

Then off to do this week's food
I got two nice magazine holders for £3.99 each.
 
It's getting warm \o/
We gets home,
Puts the shopping away.
Now to head to the lake!



Some nice cars and motorcycles to look at.


Some birds of prey to look at.


I bumped into a ex-work mate who I worked with at "Fawlty Towers".
She was saying she wasn't getting no help with her daughter at the school.
I did say there were more than one school in Bromsgrove to go to if she wasn't happy!
There was a nice car to look at on the way out↓
The kids were given £10 each for helping out with the Redditch Lions.
We had a late tea due to trying to get things in the loft!
I meanwhile had to repot some plants and give them a good water!
Beans are growing!
  Lots of veg this year!
We caught up with this week's Top Gear..
Paddy and Freddie head to Borneo for a jungle adventure with the Gurkhas in a pair of very rare, very cheap old cars. Chris Harris tries out the world's most luxurious SUV, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, while Bob Mortimer is the studio guest.
Really good episode! 
All ready to mount the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow!
