Welcome to my Doing up the house Sunday 💥
We had a bit of lie in this morning \o/

We are carrying on with tidying up the outside of the house today.
The step, hubby painted yesterday, looks nice.
Now to put the stuff back on it...
While I did some weeding out in the front garden.
Hubby cut the lawn.
However he cut through a wire to one of garden lights.....
He will have to replace them....

We did our shopping.
Back home to unpack the one bag of shopping we bought.
Now to carry on moving the compost ....back into the newly moved compost bins.

Watch Out For That Falling Shed!

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it - Steven Wright
Welcome to my smashing Thursday 💥
Sunrise time!
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest still goes on.
I am going to get a tyre replaced.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Hubby empties the shed while I have gone out.
Comes back later on.
The sun is up in the sky.
Time to take down the big shed.
Lots of things to sort through↓
The skip has already got the remains of the little shed in it.
Coffee break time.
Back to breaking up the shed.
We put most of the shed in the skip.
I put the end of the shed under the branch of the plum tree, it's a good thing I made a mad dash out of the way, as it crashing down, just a few inches from where I escaped too! 
The last remaining bits of shed was dragged off to the skip.
Now to scatter the chippings....
The big bag of chippings and three small bags of white stones were used up!
The things that couldn't be saved were left on the lawn, ready to go down the tip.
The rest of the good stuff was put undercover,as rain is due tomorrow.
Now to get the tea on the go.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
The lights are coming on in the garden!
Sleep Tea Time.
Too tired for the Heardle :(
It's a sad day tomorrow as it's 12 months since hubby's dad passed away :(
