At Least It Won't Bite Or Bark!

You can pretend to be serious: you can't pretend to be witty           Sacha Guitry
Welcome to aboard the Wobbly Wheel of Life 🎑
Hug with brew to start Monday with.
I got the kids up ready for school.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
The kids also had wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left for school.
I went outside to breath in some fresh air before I start the housework.
Loaded the dishwasher up.
Put the tumble drier on.
Now for coffee...
The my playlist was turned on....
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Even had time to put some songs on my jukebox on Twitter.
Heard nothing from where I handed in my resignation letter on Sunday.
Cracking of Champagne corks no doubt!
I put the breadmaker on in the morning,
As the loaf I made last week was getting really hard....I'm sure the birds won't mind tomorrow.
Nice big loaf made!
I was getting some ideas from my craft magazines that arrived last week.
Tea at 3.
I got my sewing box out and started to make a dog keyring. I couldn't add the stuffing to do, as I had sowed everything on, the stuffing wouldn't fit in!
At least it won't bite or bark!
Hubby came back and said "Wow" to it when I showed him.
I gave him a sloppy πŸ’‹
He gave me today's newspaper in return.

Smoke Gets Everywhere!

All the good ones are taken, if they are not taken, then there's a reason -
Murphy's Law.
 Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ‘
πŸ’‹, hug and brew to start the day.
I gives hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left for work.
Both kids also had πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left for school.
I loaded up the dishwasher.
Now to light up the Sage...
So good stuff the smoke alarm went off!
I left it outside afterwards to cool down.
Henry came out for another short play.
Mopped the kitchen floor as well.
Time for a much  needed coffee.
I started to write yesterday's blog post.
I had a chat with the postman.
I told him about me not speaking to my brothers and the reasons why.
5 years for one brother.
4 months for the other one.
And I am happy for it.
My late dad's death certificate finally arrived.
Now I know what he died from.
It's a pity he didn't have a post mortem, as he lost 10 stone in 6 years, and there must have been another reason for it besides what he died from.
I also noticed Prodical brother said he was with our dad when he died. In fact Prodical brother was in bed upstairs when our dad died, and discovered my dad dead the following morning. I found out when my younger brother was trying to phone me while I was doing my Lollipop job.
I also had the blazer I bought from Ebay. Pity the seller made a nice profit in the postage. I gave him 1/5 star for that in his feedback.
I discovered I can get rid of that nasty smell from white spirit from my washing machine.
Using White Vinegar with Baking Soda.
Pity I had neither, so I put a order in.
Made yet another loaf of bread as yesterday's was eaten.
One son came back from school during lunchtime as he had a free lesson.
Finished writing yesterday's blog post.
Now for lunch!
I was enjoying listening to my playlist I created on Amazon music.
Got things ready to chop up for tea.
But first....
Tea at 3. 
My kids came back from school.
My delivery of food also arrived.
That will help cut down the food shop this week!
Put it's all away.
Now to start on tonight's tea.
Chicken pan fried.
Chopped mushrooms, onions, peppers, garlic and the spinach was lightly fried too.
Added the Honey and Mustard sauce and in the oven it all went.
Hubby came back from work.
He had a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ .
He gave me today's newspaper.
