Those who welcome death have only tried it from the ears up - 
Wilson Mixner 
Welcome to my Thursday 👯
Hoping the swelling on my knee goes down enough for me to return back to work next week \o/
A cup of brew with added hug.
Hubby fetched the newspaper for me.
He had a few more sloppy wet 💋💋💋 for doing so.
Kids had some more wet 💋💋 off me.
Coffee time!
While looking through the newspaper.

Then on to writing yesterday's blog post.
I got the chicken out of the freezer ready for tonight, made the stuffing, and roast potatoes.
I tidied up my boxes of craft items that are on the top of my wardrobe in our bedroom↓
I found some thermal lining which might have to be added to the 47 year old curtains by late mum made↓
I found some nice material I bought 8 years ago at the Craft Fair at the NEC↓
The story behind the nice material: While I had a limit of £70 to spend at the Craft Fair.
The person I went with spent over £350 on craft items.
(I needed £12 to get out of the car park)
Dirty Harry once said:
"A Man's got to know his limitations"
I found a box to put more material in↓
 I ordered a pattern to make some tote bags.
The elastic for the waist bands for the skirts I ordered last week has failed to arrive.
They was suppose to arrive Tuesday.
I got in contact with the seller. 
They gave me a fake tracking number.
I have informed Ebay about it.
Lunch time 
I tried to find out where I put some sewing patterns.(It was August 2018, when I moved the Dining room around)Couldn't find them anywhere...
Then my knee started to hurt...grrrrr
Time for more season 4 of:
Tea at 3.
If I can return back to work next week.
I need something spotty to wear next Friday as it's Children in Need day.
as well as Friday 13th :(
I ordered some spotty fabric,
I will try and make a spotty skirt...
(If my elastic comes before then!)
Hubby comes home and receives some wet 💋💋💋
Dish up the roast chicken dinner.
No one beside me like English Mustard...
We carry on with season 4 of Hell's Kitchen up to the Final.
I was going to make spotty apron for next week. I bidded on an apron pattern on Ebay.
Then I found another pattern on another website. Any other time, I get outbidded on Ebay.Because I WANTED to be outbid, it didn't happen!
I won the item.....
Now to move onto Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen.
Sleep tea time.
Time to get in the mood for tomorrow's Friday Feeling 🎈
(Great song coming up at the end of today's blog post)

Switching Hats & Spinning Plates

If you are too busy to develop your talents, you are too busy.
- Julia Cameron
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
I heard on the radio, 
It was Best Teacher was trending on Twitter.
My favourite teacher was Mr Irwin, who taught me at First School, back in 1979!  
Good t-shirt time to be put on..
 First Hat of the Day...
It didn't help, I tried to juggle a box of nails and a box of picture hanging hooks...
Now to move about the pictures in my bathroom!
 I needed some positivity after that fun!
I lost out on a matching bedroom set on Sunday by 80p on Ebay. 
Surprise Surprise the seller relisted it again.
I gets in contact with him, he puts it on a buy it now price on what I bidded on Sunday and I won it!
Now to sort out a price with younger brother to fetch it.... 
My brother came back with a quote £10 higher than the same quote, he gave me on Sunday.I put some quotes out for other Man With A Van services. 
Liquid Lunch time↓
 My friend who I used to see on a Tuesday, phoned and we had a little catch up before I had to leave for work.
Gets out of the house and look what was in the way!
 I knock on the driver's window,
"Could you just move down abit please?"
I ask.
He looks around his curtain and says,
"I'm moving now!"
 Fingers crossed no rain
 Quick peek at the newspaper↓
 Hopefully no rain clouds↓
 Just as I get into work, my dad phones and says he has run out milk!
I tell him to phone the younger brother, as hubby and I are at work!
Hat Number 2.
Dish up Dinners
After I finished, 
I had a lovely red face!
Plenty of good tunes to sing along with on the way home!
 My brother is still arguing over the quote he gave me.Then he goes back to the earlier quote from Sunday!
I did get some good news however.
I have been given more hours with one of other jobs \o/
While I was at one of those other jobs, the carer for my dad phoned. She was still grumbling why my hubby sold the car to someone else.....and not to her.
I repeated what she told my hubby last Friday..
"If someone else is interested and wants the car, let them have it!"
Which we did. She wasn't forthcoming with a deposit for it,so we sold it to someone else! 
Cooking Evening Meal Hat
Mince, garlic, spinach, red onions all cooked up and put in a toasted Pitta Bread.
Then off to do my final job of the day with some cracking music to sing-a-long with!
When I got back home, 
I had missed the heavy rain we had.

 My younger brother comes round with his wife to collect the money to pick up the stuff I won off Ebay.
By the time they left,
I couldn't find the 
Blogging Hat to wear! 
Now to enjoy the rest of Hump Day in bed🐪

Just About Fit It In!

"On this Saturday, remember that you are the master of your fate and the captain of your soul" - anon
Welcome to Flaming June!
I got up early...
 I made hubby a cup of tea.
Then we had to go out and pick up something I won from Ebay
 We picked it up from Stratford upon Avon.
Then we visited our favourite place for bargains↓
 Not quite needing this at the moment↓
 We got some great wicker items for £8
Just about fitted them in the car!
 Something had to fit inbetween my legs!
 It's getting warm
 We stopped off for a drink and nibble↓
We got back home.
The wicker unit was put to some use↓
 Moved to upgrading the bathroom.
We changed our shower curtain to↓
New bath mat
That's the bathroom tidied up↓
I won some curtains on Ebay to hang in the bathroom.
Hopefully they will arrive next week. 
I leave to do my other job.
Having some great tunes to listen to:
Came back home 
As we have a scaffording pole in front of our sky disc, we watched some Netflix.
Time for some Louis!
 Saturday Night Fun!
