Having Lots Of Play!

If you think nobody cares if you're alive or dead, try missing a couple of car payments - Flip Wilson

I slept right through and missed

 Graham's guests are Renee Zellweger, Lenny Henry, Louis Theroux and Andrew Ridgeley. Elbow perform White Noise, White Heat.
The final of Interior Design Masters
We caught up with Law and Order season 11 for the week.Only to find the ending was being cut off!!! Before we could see if they were been found innocent or guilty. We are going to watch it off Universal TV channel instead, as it is showing Season 11 as well as 5*USA channel.
 The new curtains in our bedroom are looking nice and keeping the bedroom warm.
 It probably helps we have a 16 tog duvet as well ;)

Feeling Groovy....

Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐫
Back to school for my kids.
Back to wearing the chef's hat for me!
Kids were going in a bit later, as the new Year 9 were in first.
I enjoyed the warm hug and tea in bed!
I gave hubby a bit sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
I gave my kids some 💋💋 before they left for school.
(They looked so smart in their uniforms!)
Dishwasher and washing machine were put on.
Tidied up the living room.
Coffee time :)

Light Lunch time↓
 Now off in the Sexy Beast...
 Some nice music to listen to↓
 Quick look at the newspaper...
 At least the sun is shining!
 The Chef hat is coming out...

It was nice to see the kids again.
There was a fire alarm drill.
Once I finally finished.
I took a big gulp of fresh air in the car park!
 More singing along on the way home.

Mellow Yellow

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new Landscapes,but in having new eyes - Marcel Proust
Welcome to my Thursday....
I am hopefully on the painting wheel 🎡 later.
But first the first hug and cup of tea of the day...
 I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
Now the fun to get up our kids before 10am! 
 As one is delivering more newspapers, while the other son is painting my dad's fences!
I drop off both sons.
I find out my dad has no paint...
Off to another Man's cave...
 The fence paint was knocked down to £10 from £12. Plus 2 fence brushes.
Grand total £32!
I left one son painting and the other son delivering his newspapers.
By the time I got home, the morning had vanished.
I had a quick lunch↓
 Got to get the painting down the stairwell done↓
 Then off to a happy place of work

After I put the evening meal to cook,
I caught up on some more:
 Now to serve up Meatballs!
This meal only costed me £5 to make :)
I caught up with episode 2 of:
Interior Design Masters
After a tough first week transforming show homes, with nine designers left, they return to Michelle's design studio to find out about their next challenge. 
Michelle tells them that she is sending them to a hotel in Bournemouth, where they each have a bedroom to design in their own particular signature style. She wants to see their own unique styles coming through and find out who they really are as designers. But there is a twist - this hotel isn't any standard seaside hotel, it is called Hotel Chocolate, and has a strong chocolate theme to delight their guests
I think the wrong one went home!
Then off to final job of the day..
Once back home,
Night clothes on,
A little bit of news,
Sleep tea,
Warm rub down......
