You Are So Lucky!

It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know what you would lie if you were in his place - H L Mencken
Welcome to my Monday🎈
I'm on a small wobbly work wheel this week 🎑
  I had to sleep on the sofa last night to escape the better half's loud snoring...
I heard it even though I had ear plugs..
(This will teach me not to fall asleep while watching Top Gear!!) 
After an uncomfortable night on the sofa, I went upstairs to have a much needed hug and cup of tea.
 I gave hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left the house...
I went back to sleep in that lovely king size bed πŸ›
After a couple of hours, it was time for a coffee↓
 Gathered up the kids,
We left the house↓
  Filled up Sexy Beast.
Nipped into Morrisons to get some bits.
I saw my friend, and asked "How's her mum was?"
"She died in August last year," came the answer back.
"I'm sorry to hear, my dad passed away on February 5th, bringing out the vultures!" I replied.
She came back to me and said:
"You are so lucky!" 
"Why am I lucky, because I lost my dad?" I asked.
"My Stepdad sold the house a week before my mum died and my mum's will was void.My Step-dad walked away with half an million pound and my sister and I had nothing. He still hadn't got the grave stone enscribed!"
She walked off without hearing my answer. 
Now to burn off some Monday Blues to nip off to a great Charity Shop.
Someone was walking out with a gold framed mirror and picnic basket when we went past it.
 Someone was glad to see me↑
 They so remind of a certain song I love↑↓
 Gets some lovely stuff↓
 Light lunch↓
 Had a quick look in the newspaper↓

Then the last episode of the week:
Someone didn't up the top back on the bottle and left it in the door of the fridge...

Not much left after it fell out of the fridge,
All over the kitchen floor!
