Something Else!

The mirror above my bed reads: objects appear larger than they are. - Gary Shandling
Welcome to my Tuesday 💥
I brought up the tea,
While hubby brought up the breakfast.
Out to get the newspaper before it gets busy.
Bloody cold!
Says hello to everyone in the newspaper shop.
My dad's drive is down to 3 cars now! 👏
Goes to fetch the new curtain rail for the hall.
Back home.
Quick coffee time.
While I get the blog wrote.
Hubby has to take off the old curtain rail and put the new one on.
Quick job we thought....
Kids were going to help Joe delivering more leaflets. I cut Joe and Pete some cake.
Lots left↓
We had some soup for lunchtime.
The one curtain rail was finally took off.
The 12 year old blind was took down as well
(the covers the little window).
Hubby had broke 3 drill bits trying to put the brackets on the wood covering the wall....
No one had told me that we had run out of staples for the staple gun..
(The other grey staple gun has been reported missing!) 
The blind is going to be covered in more material as the blind has a gap between the end of it and the window.....
It doesn't help the window is draughty as hell.......↓
Tea at 3. 
Finally the curtain rail is up over the window and door! \o/
My bulk load of Sleep Tea arrives from Amazon \o/
It starts to snow again...
Starts making the non-meat Stir Fry.
We watched the whole of Louis Theroux:
Shooting Joe Exotic from the beginning.
The HDMI Splitter I bought yesterday which also came today wasn't working as we couldn't no Sky at all.....
(Something else!!!!)
We watched episode 7 of  season 1 of Snowpiercer on Netflix instead.
It turns out the Splitter was the wrong sort!!
I had to organise the return of it...
(One job to do tomorrow!)
I cut out the material to cover the blind with...
(Another job tomorrow to do)
I ordered the new cabin bed for my son's box room. It's coming Thursday morning.
