Are You Drunk?

 When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife - Prince Philip
Welcome to my Tuesday ⛾
Nice warm hug with my brew.
Breakfast.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before he left for work.
I went back in that warm bed for a little bit of lie-in....
So warm with in Teddy!
Then I woke up, got dressed.
I put on the coffee machine, for when I come back.
Now to get some fresh air...
I popped to the Newspaper Shop.
I walked in with my facemask on.
The owner was on all fours looking at the bottom shelf.
"That's how I like it, my men kneeling in front of me!"I said to him, as he got up.
There was a man being served in front of me, asked me:
"Are you drunk?"
"No, only drunk on coffee!"I replied.
"You are so happy!" He said.
"I'm always happy, no point in being miserable!"
"Stay happy,"he said as he left the shop. 
I got my newspaper, and off home I went.
Now time for that much needed coffee!
First load of washing from yesterday was dried and took upstairs.
Now to use the washing machine again!
I sent another email about my parcel being delivered to the right address....
Being Ignored again!
I got yesterday's blog post wrote all the way to lunch.
Quick lunch as got a friend coming round for chat, coffee and cake!
My friend appeared!
Chat time.
We finished off the M&S scones...
We have a good yak...
More chat, and coffee later on in the week...
Now to put tea in the oven.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋
The ladder has now been sold, and pick up is tomorrow \o/
Tea is served.
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Keeping The Draughts At Bay!

It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death 
- Mary Renault
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐪
The swelling is going down, but more bruises are appearing on my knee.....Strange...
I had to get comfortable on the two seater sofa during the night.
I missed our Hug with a brew.
And having our breakfast together.
Hubby got my newspaper before he went for work.
I gave him a quick sloppy wet one before he dashed out of the house to go to work.
One son couldn't escape from one either!
Our youngest one is doing his school work from home.
He had to make a flag from household items.
(He loves Geography)
Very good :)
Now for coffee...
With a quick read of the newspaper.
 Ben-Hur" directed by William Wyler and starring Charlton Heston premieres in New York City in 1959.
 (Academy Awards Best Picture 1960)
 
I had a big blog post from yesterday to write...including hits from 1990...and Martin Scorsese's Birthday.....🎈
I finally finished it before lunch!
Woo hoo...
Post!
I going to have a go at making the poncho.
More needles for my Overlocker.
(I have no spare ones)
More bingewatching to do...
(While keeping the knee up)
Tea at 3.
I finished season 8.
The winner was:
Nona!
Now onto Season 9..
We are taking a break from meat tonight.
Veggie option.
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy 💋 when he got home, and a warm hug.
I'm the only one who likes brown sauce...
We caught up with the semi-final of 
The Great British Bake Off.
The only window in the house that doesn't have a curtain or blind in it is the toilet room.
Measured the window up.
I have ordered a small curtain pole and going to make a curtain for it. The draught you get from the window is terrible.
So the plan tomorrow is to make it tomorrow just in time for the curtain pole arriving on Friday!
Going to try to fit in making a dust cover for the overlocker as well. 
Sleep Tea time↓
I hope I can enjoy the bed tonight and not the sofa!
