Next Room To Do!

 The only success the mother-in-law had was with the council, selling her mince pie lids as manhole covers - Les Dawson.
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’“
I woke up early, and needed a cup of brew.
I got on with writing my blog from yesterday.
Once finished, I woke up Sleeping Beauty up with a nice hot coffee.
We finished off the crumpets.
Now to get some layers on,
And go on a ride with Sexy Beast
First, to check the tyre pressures.
It didn't help a Black BMW parked over the first tyre pressurer machine, but was using the second one!
Next off to visit my mum and dad.
I removed the two wreaths.
Looks like no one else had been up except me!
Someone had drove in the wrong way, and was waiting for me to leave, so she could reverse all the way out!
Back home to put on the coffee machine.
Next job was to sort out boxes on top of the kitchen cupboards and inside the cupboards.
Coffee first.
Noah and the Whale came on the radio.
Again they blanked out some lyrics again.
 "She went down on almost anyone"
I have heard worst lyrics than that they allow to play!
Now to start on the kitchen!
I found two boxes of glasses I had from my dad's house last year.
They will come in useful, as I only have the minion glass :)
Lunchtime.
Put all my new diffusers in the same place.
Bag of paperwork to go through tomorrow.
Hubby and younger son put some things up in the loft.
Too late to start on the roast dinner.
Use up the Christmas themed pasta instead.
I added Spinach,garlic,chilli flakes, and mushrooms to the homemade Pasta Sauce.
There were four empty plates afterwards!
Dishwasher was loaded up afterwards.
Time to catch up with Top of the Pops from 1992.
Oh dear the fast forwarded button was used up to the number 1.
The second episode was a bit better.
At least they played the Genesis video in full!
Shakespear's Sister was on.
(Cut the song off half way)
Curtis Stigers was also cut of in mid song.
Hubby is rewatching the second episode on his own on Tuesday night, as I am not wasting my precious time watching some crap songs that was on!
We tried to watch something on Netflix, and one of the children was watchin instead.
We let it go this time,next time they are coming off it!
