I Dread Friday 13th!

 It's Friday the 13th? Oh no. I has to be evil today ..."

Welcome to my Friday 13th Fun Day 🐔
I'm still feeling unwell.
We got up to fit in the Heardle.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
I just had dried toast with water for Breakfast.
I wasn't feeling very well :(
Gave hubby a sloppy kiss 💋 before he left.
I finally got up.
Added the thermal vest.
Friday 13th is not a good day to me at all.
11 years ago on this day, I finished at Royal Mail after 22 years :(
Something is going to happen for the worst!
I would use the time for good.
Started to write some blog posts.
I got some disturbing news concerning the meeting with the Council next Thursday.
It leaks out that the Council doesn't want to pay to upgrade the house next door, and they want to sell the land with my house on it!
Been here for nearly 14th years,I have upgraded the house, made it look nice.
Going to wait to be fobbed off with bullshit by people in the know!
My friend comes around for a chat and gives me some stuff she was given.
I have some light lunch.
I went to put on the tumble drier, and it trips the Fuse box.
I ordered a new extension lead, and I have to pick it up on Sunday.
My phone was red hot with the leaking of the news about the sale of the land that my council house is on!
I have a Councillor arrive later on trying to smooth the waters.
(Bullshit time!)
Hubby comes home from work, upset on hearing the news as well as me.
I drop him to watch Roy Chubby Brown at the Palace Theatre.
Just as I was dropping off the Councillor back home.
He points to my shoe racks:
"You better get someone to declutter these!"
"I already have, thanks!" I reply.
He invites himself to the meeting next week!
Going to a Comedy of Errors at the meeting.
Gets back feeling a bit upset at the news I won't be in this house for long :'(
I pick up hubby from seeing Roy Chubby Brown.
He had a good time and had meet and greet with him.
Quick look in the today's newspaper while hubby has a shower.
US No.1 on this day in 1962:
Chubby Checker - The Twist. 
Sleep Tea Time.
Counting down the days to find out if the leek was right.

I am a doormat in a world of boots - Jean Rhys
Welcome to my Saturday 💗
I woke up early, and left Sleeping Beauty to have a lie in...
I had to write 3 blog posts, 
While listening to the "Sounds of the 60s"
Drinking Tea.
It was top 3 UK Singles from 1964 
Sleeping Beauty rose from his warm pit.
We had breakfast.
Thermal vest went on.
Time to do some food shopping
(And use the £10 off voucher for Lidl)
We got 2 wobbly boxes.
Then we moved the car and had a look in the charity shops.
Hubby needed another suit jacket for his Aunt's Funeral next week.
Found a nice one with a long black rain mac for £16.
I was on the hunt for more minions to go with the one I bought last week.
I was not disappointed.....
We looked in all the charity shops and had to hurry back to car as the parking ticket was running out.
Now back home to unpack all the shopping.
Lots of jigsaws to keep the younger son busy.
20 minutes power nap.
Then to put all the things away I bought earlier.
The Christmas Balloon and Bakery came out for Christmas.↓
I have wrote to two more inmates in prison in the United States.
I hope to hear from the other four I sent letters too in the near future.
Tea time.
Steak Time.
I found two shopping lists while I was in Lidl this morning.
Today's Advent Calender door is:
We finished watching the BBC Three series on

Life and Death Row Series 2
Episode 3 of 4
Life and Death Row tells the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it. With unprecedented access inside prison walls, it discovers what it's like to live with the threat of the death chamber, as well as hearing from victims and their families, and the family of those on death row - some praying for execution, some hoping for a reprieve. Each episode focuses on different aspects of the system - execution, punishment and the complex nature of 'truth'.
In January 2014, Waynesville, Ohio, 18-year-old Justin Back is brutally murdered in his own home. Two of his 19-year-old friends, Austin Myers and Timothy Mosley, are arrested and charged with his murder. However both give very different versions of events, begging the question, who is telling the truth?
With prosecutors seeking the death penalty for the crime, what will each one do to save themselves from the ultimate punishment? With access to the families of all three boys, the devastating nature of this gruesome crime and it's repercussions are revealed. It's one crime but will there be two different outcomes?
