Flashing Red Light.....

 If you think it's difficult to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball - Jack Lemmon
Welcome to my Sunday 💗
I got up to make a brew, as I had dry throat.
After half an hour, hubby rose out of the warm bed, to make the breakfast and a hot cup of coffee.
Big hug to start the day.
Thermal vest went on.
As well as loads of layers.
Now to sort out Sexy Beast.
First to get Sexy Beast, washed and polished.
6 cars in front of me.
The white 4x4 behind was sat on my arse the whole time of me waiting.
After waiting nearly 50 minutes,
I'm there!
Sexy Beast is nice and clean.
Checked the tyres.
Now for a much needed coffee!
I nip into the Co-op for some bits.
The self-service doesn't like me scanning the reduced food.
The red light kept going off!
There is a fault with the I.T system when asked about the red light keep going off!
Now finally back home!
Puts on coffee machine
Soup maker.
Puts the bits away from Co-op.
Soup is done!
Now back out to check hubby's tyres.
We pop and see my mum and dad.
Back home to do some housework.
Dishwasher unloaded again.
Washing machine back on.
I started to write yesterday's blog post.
Tea was put on as well.
Finished blog post just in time for tea!
Followed by homemade rice pudding.
I used brown sugar instead of white.
Plus added some vanilla essence and double cream to it.
Tasted so nice!
After letting that go down.
I was first in the queue for a shower!
Letting the hair dry,
I looked into today's newspaper.

Putting It Together!

Reason has always existed, but not always in a reasonable form - Karl Marx
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Big hug with brew.
Quick ride out in Sexy Beast.
Bloody freezing!
Said hello to everyone in the shop while I got my newspaper.
Then on to town to return my Amazon product.
It got scanned, and sent back to sender.
Back home soon afterwards.
Still freezing!
Coffee time!
Kids were woken up.
One son has to clear out his room ready for his new cabin bed tomorrow.
Hubby goes and get some new tyres for his car.
I meanwhile are making a draught proof curtain for the little window by our front door!
My sewing machine comes out....
Having a little go on it...
Hubby comes back with a much needed takeaway coffee...
By the time I sowed the 3 sides of material and put the blind in, there wasn't another material to cover the 4th side....
I sew some different material on the remaining side. Then added the same material to the one side of the curtain!
My wool order had arrived!
My son went off for a job interview with hubby.
The other son was trying to attach the curtain to wood above the window.
It at least will stop the draughts from the window!
Now to start writing yesterday's blog post.
Son came back from job interview, the boss will be in touch soon....
I heard back from my late dad's solicitor.
The buyer still has to sign and send the documents back to his solicitor....
I send email to the solicitor dealing with my dad's estate. It is looking more like June before this lot gets sorted.....
Then I won't have to deal with my brothers no more.....
Put the tea on early as kids on delivering leaflets with Joe and Pete later on.
Once kids have been dropped off.
We have our veggie option.
We caught up on Judge Rinder.
No Judge Rinder for the rest of the week due to horseracing.
Next to watch was:
I made some more pom poms
Quick look into today's newspaper.
