Keep On Moving It!

I can live for two months on a good compliment - Mark Twain
Bank Holiday Monday.
Welcome along to my Bank Holiday Monday.
We were up early as we had lots of do in the garden!
Thermal vest goes on.
The delivery arrived early...
Now to carry on with my Breakfast and Brew.
While hubby went to the Household Tip.
I took to emptying the big bag of chippings.
Hubby made another trip to the Household tip.
I transported the chippings on the trolley jack.
The skip is arriving tomorrow, one broken up shed can go in it, while we empty the other one.
Coffee break
Alexa was playing up to listen to "Popmaster"
Out comes the trusty radio that belonged to my late Father-in-law.
Back out to lay the chippings in the garden up to liquid lunch.
Those dark clouds are going over.
Oh dear the rain comes down.
Sexy lumo trousers time!
Then the sun comes out!
Few more hours of emptying the bag, so we can move it off the drive.
Now to get changed!
Off our for tea!
That was so nice :)
Back home.
I then published 3 weeks of blog posts.
Just to need to catch up with the last 7 days!

My son's answers:
Hubby and younger son went off to have their hair cut.
The coffee maker went on.
Watered all the plants.
Coffee time.
Both come back.
Shorter hair now.
Hubby drops off kids who is helping out with someone's garden.
When he comes back, we load up his car of all the things for doing up his late dad's house.
When we get there.
All the windows and back door is opened.
First to make the second bedroom,
Child Friendly.
Coffee & Nibble time.
Now to do some work...
I tidied up outside the kitchen door.
I filled up 3 rubble bags of crap!
I was well pleased with my efforts.
(With next door watching I expect!)
Glad I got that bit done.
As it was getting well warm outside.
The top half of the garden will have to be done another time, as I sweated enough doing the bottom half of the garden!
I finished doing up the bathroom.
Rose petals in the bath.
(Not just any rose petals, they are M&S rose petals) 
Light lunch.
Hubby goes back to painting.
Now to tidy up the kitchen once more.
Now to change the colour of the kitchen units.
Goes outside for some fresh air...
It really needs to chairs to sit on out here.
Watch this space!
Right we were done.
Finally back home.
Crumpets with grated cheese for tea.
A look again in the weekend's newspaper.
