Right House, But Wrong Name!

Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power - Shirley MacLaine
Welcome to February πŸ‘…
Warm hug with a brew.
I got the kids up to do their on-line learning.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went out to work.
I meanwhile made full use of that warm king-size for a bit longer πŸ›
I got up by the time I had a text message from hubby to say he got in to work.
Now out for a little ride.
Still cold.
Gets newspaper.
Check on my late dad's car park situation.
Back home.
I have 2 blog posts to write.
First I have the Valentine's things arrive from Amazon↓
Then my Works order arrived↓
Done the blogs.
Even done some great Disco tunes on my Twitter.
Then I had a knock at the door.
A salesman wearing a blue face mask asking for the previous occupant.
I said,"He doesn't live here no more, as I have been here for nearly 12 years."
He tried using the phone number the previous occupant had given him, but my phone didn't ring.
My thoughts were the previous occupant didn't fancy the fancy armchair this company was selling him, and decided to give them his old address. However he did put his right mobile number to them, which his daughter answered and gave them his right address.
The Salesman then left to go to the right address!
Belated lunch.
One of the books I ordered for my neighbour had arrived and I went round to give it to him.
Oh dear....
He was not happy with the shopping my younger son had been getting him......
Then he wasn't happy with the car he has given my younger son, that he hasn't cleaned it up.😢😢
The weather has been against us which hasn't helped.
Plus the battery needs charging up!
I comes back home in need of a brew after that.
I need a funny film to watch...
Here goes:
Hubby comes home with a nice sloppy πŸ’‹

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↓

 Together on Graham’s sofa this week: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton discuss reuniting for Terminator: Dark Fate, and Debbie Harry and Nadiya Hussain talk about their new autobiographies. With music from DJ Spoony's Garage Classical featuring The Sugababes.
The Plumber arrived...
We had a laugh especially when he asked "Who broke the cooker this time?
"The same person who broke the last one, 9 months ago!"
Then I commented to him.
"If it has balls or tyres you will have problems!"
He replied, "I have problems with both!"
 All fitted in!
Now to use it....
Nice bit of Pork Curry to give us some warmth!
