Cleaning Down Below!

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose - Bill Gates
Welcome to my wet Hump of the Week 🐪
At least the garden is being watered!
 Hug and Brew time↑↑
It looked like rain...
Off out in Sexy Beast..
 On the way back,
It started to rain.
Lucky escape!
I gave hubby a sloppy 💋 before he went off to work.
I had a quick coffee,
Before writing yesterday's blog post.
You Tube or my computer was now letting me see the videos I wanted↓
Quick look in the newspaper↓

I missed the temperatures in the USA...

Now to use some nice material↓
 Cut out all the material to make some face masks..
A quick Tea at 3↓
 Getting back onto sewing with my sewing machine↓
One face mask made.
Onto the second one and the bloody needle breaks again↓
 Plus the bobbin was making a noise too.
(I have to use a bigger bobbin says the book that came with the machine.)
Takes the machine apart...
To clean below↓

 I bought this one with the last of my redundancy money.
(Not off Gumtree either!) 
Once I gave it a good clean downstairs.
Fixed another needle, and put everything back together!
Time to use a bigger bobbin↓ 
 Left it after putting the bobbin in the bobbin holder.
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to thread the bloody new needle again....
Hubby came back and asked how it went this afternoon...
I didn't have to say anything...
My face it all.
Finished number 2 facemask except for the pleats, which I will do tomorrow.
Now to dish up the grub!

Then off to work I go...
Great tune to start with↓
 Plenty of singing to do....
Back home in the dark↓
I surprised myself knowing the lyrics word for word to one particular song I was singing when I got in.
Even my two teenagers were surprised, I even did the hand moves↓
 We watched the episode of NYPD Blue when Jimmy Smits character dies....↓
 Bobby Simone
(Hubby was getting upset as it reminded him of his mum passing away in hospital.)
At least Jimmy Smits won a Golden Globe For Best Actor in A Drama Series in 1996 
& Outstanding Performance award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards↓
Sleep tea drank↓

No road rage incidents to report.
