Time To Leave The Room!

Come on, Joan, tell us which husband was the best lover?" 
- Joan Rivers
"Yours!" - Joan Collins 
Bank Holiday Monday 
Welcome to my Monday 🎈
I woke up at 4.30am and couldn't get back to sleep. So downstairs I went for a much needed cup of brew!
I soon fell asleep until I woke up much later.
Time for breakfast with brew.
Time to get dressed.
Hubby was going to Lidl with younger son to get bits and the newspaper.
I gave him a sloppy wet 💋
I sorted through all my clothes that were hung up on the bedroom door.
1st New Year Resolution:
 Not to buy any more clothes
I also sorted through 2 baskets of dry washing.
(The washing machine was back on) 
My fabric order arrived \o/
Hubby and son came back.
Son had to spent £10 in Lidl.
It cost him nothing.
The soup maker went back on.
Chicken & Sweetcorn Soup.
Hubby finished off painting the bathroom.
My Amazon order arrived.
Another picture frame for a completed jigsaw to go on my son's wall.
Tea at 3.
Now to glue the arm back on the chair!
Now to put the things back on the wall in the bathroom.
Hubby was going to play snooker with his new cue I bought him for Christmas.
Fingers crossed he wins his match!
 I put all the toiletries back on the shelves.
Second New Year Resolution:
Not to buy any more body butters or body lotions
I got on making my meat-free Stir fry.
Quick look in the newspaper.

Gerry and the Pacemakers had the distinction of being the first act to have their first three recordings go to number 1 in the UK charts. Although they never had a number 1 in the United States, they were the second-most successful group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have hits on the United States pop charts. Their 1965 musical film Ferry Cross the Mersey was co-written by Tony Warren.
He sadly died on this day in 2021 aged 78.

Flicking through the channels for something to watch...
I came across The Fog....
It got a bit creepy for me,🙈
I left the room to fill up the dishwasher.
Still creepy.... 🙈
Time to turn it over before the fog comes back!
Sleep Tea Time.
Hubby came back from snooker, and finally won his match!
Woo hoo \o/
The temperatures are dropping....

Who Needs Love Like That!

The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous 
- Shana Alexander
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Thermals were added....
I found out why my dad's funeral is nearly 3 weeks away...
The Prodical brother's birthday is on the 23rd February and mine is on the 29th February.
Prodical didn't want a funeral just after his Birthday....
So we are stuck in limbo for 3 weeks now!
Now to enjoy a much needed hug and cup of tea!
 I gave everyone sloppy 💋💋💋
Now to leave the house↓
 
 Long thermals are coming in useful!
The sun is coming up↗↗↗
 Today's tree picture↓
 I didn't have the fun with the blue van like yesterday.
Some car drivers still can't understand "STOP"!
Finished in one piece.
Then on to the Hairdressers.
I booked my hair to be trimmed next week.
I told my hairdresser about the fun I was having with my brother's stripping my dad's house out.
I commented :"Who needs Brotherly love like that? Not me!"
Back home after picking some milk up from the local Co-op.

 I had a nice red face when I finished.
More singing to do↓
 
 Back out in the sunshine↓
More fun with the low lying sun↓
 I was in the middle of road, one woman car driver didn't want to wait another minute, put her foot down, and drove past me!
I just shook my head!
Besides that,
I finished in one piece!
Back home↓
 Gets changed.
Off to the Happy Place Of Work.
I was telling them about it's been a week since my dad died, and my two brothers stripping my dad's house bare.
Gets back home to start on the evening meal↓
 Yum, yum.
Now to burn it off while doing work and singing↓
 I gets back, and hubby is having a nice conversation with my younger brother! NOT!
Lists with all the tools my dad owed are being made, as there are some arguments about me having a few tools!!!!
Off to bed in hope I have a better day tomorrow!
