Cleaning Down Below!

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose - Bill Gates
Welcome to my wet Hump of the Week 🐪
At least the garden is being watered!
 Hug and Brew time↑↑
It looked like rain...
Off out in Sexy Beast..
 On the way back,
It started to rain.
Lucky escape!
I gave hubby a sloppy 💋 before he went off to work.
I had a quick coffee,
Before writing yesterday's blog post.
You Tube or my computer was now letting me see the videos I wanted↓
Quick look in the newspaper↓

   My friend was coming for chat, coffee and cake↓
  Friend arrived.
Time for a good yak↓
 Black suit trousers arrived for my son.
He now has at least 4 suits for 6th form. \o/
I also had a nice delivery of more funky fabric↓
 I said goodbye to my friend.
(We will meet up next week)
I missed the temperatures in the USA...
(Normal service will resume tomorrow)
Now to use some nice material↓
 Cut out all the material to make some face masks..
A quick Tea at 3↓
 Getting back onto sewing with my sewing machine↓
One face mask made.
Onto the second one and the bloody needle breaks again↓
 Plus the bobbin was making a noise too.
(I have to use a bigger bobbin says the book that came with the machine.)
Takes the machine apart...
To clean below↓

 I bought this one with the last of my redundancy money.
(Not off Gumtree either!) 
Once I gave it a good clean downstairs.
Fixed another needle, and put everything back together!
Time to use a bigger bobbin↓ 
 Left it after putting the bobbin in the bobbin holder.
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to thread the bloody new needle again....
Hubby came back and asked how it went this afternoon...
I didn't have to say anything...
My face it all.
Finished number 2 facemask except for the pleats, which I will do tomorrow.
Now to dish up the grub!
 Yummy,lots of brown sauce!
We watched another episode of:
Then off to work I go...
Great tune to start with↓
 Plenty of singing to do....
Back home in the dark↓
I surprised myself knowing the lyrics word for word to one particular song I was singing when I got in.
Even my two teenagers were surprised, I even did the hand moves↓
 We watched the episode of NYPD Blue when Jimmy Smits character dies....↓
 Bobby Simone
(Hubby was getting upset as it reminded him of his mum passing away in hospital.)
At least Jimmy Smits won a Golden Globe For Best Actor in A Drama Series in 1996 
& Outstanding Performance award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards↓
Sleep tea drank↓
One of my son's has his GCSE's results tomorrow. \o/

Left it a bit late to walk to fetch the newspaper.

  With the first coffee of the day↓
  Now to start to write yesterday's blog.
I don't know whether my computer or You Tube was playing up. I couldn't put a lot of Belinda Carlisle's pop videos on as a lot of her videos were unavaliable.....
Even a mash up Talk Talk/No Doubt/Michael Jackson's It's My Life video was unavaliable .....FFS
(I only listened to it yesterday!!!)
(It's now back on!) 
I was having emails about the start of the new school year.
I might have to find out and dust down my suit to wear at dinnertime↓
One for my Lollipop job↓
 When it takes me about an hour to write a blog post, due to having problems with putting the videos on, it took me a further hour and another cup of coffee!!! Grrrrrr
I was glad when lunchtime came round!
 Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓
 I had more lovely material arrive↓
 Time to make more funky facemasks↓
 I got two rainbow facemasks made.
Just started to finish the shiny blue one when the needle snapped off!!!
Removed that one.
The second one ended up being bent!
 I added a third needle.
I couldn't thread the thread.
Tried the needle threader↓
It broke off!
I needed a belated tea at 3
 After pissing about for another half an hour, I finally threaded the needle!
I then had to walk away and let my patience grow back!
I put the tea on...
Hubby had a bad afternoon at work as well.
Nice sloppy 💋 and a big hug...
We then felt a lot better!
Tea was ready↓
 Another episode of ↓
 Then off to do some work...
 First big tune↓
 Lots of singing along.....
It's nice and dark when I got back home↓
 It's Billy J Kramer's 77th Birthday tomorrow....plenty of tunes of his on tomorrow's blog post.
Here is a tune to get you into the mood!
 It looks like it's going to soggy Hump of the Week tomorrow...
I took my sleep tea upstairs to bed↓
Let's hope I have a better day tomorrow...
Surely it can't get any worst?????
