Something Has Come Down In Price!

The only parts of my original body are my elbows - Phyllis Diller
Welcome to my Thursday 🎶
Nice big hug to start the day with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Hubby got ready for work.
He had a nice wet one before he left for work.
Then I got up,
(Thermal vest went on)
While kids got up.
I enjoyed a early coffee...
Once we were ready to go....
We left:
First stop, to get the newspaper.
Next stop was Sainsburys↓
A laundry basket I wanted last year,
has now been reduced!
£6.50 instead of £20 last year :)
The kids got my Birthday cards for Monday.
Front cover of Private Eye.
Dropped off son at work.
Back home.
The laundry basket was soon filled!
The dishwasher was on the load up.
The coffee machine was put on.
Now to do some tidying up around the place!
With added coffee!
Once that was done.
I started writing two blog posts.
My lunchtime was inbetween.
Back on to it.
Tea at 3 next. 
I just finished the last blog when hubby came home.
He was rewarded with a sloppy wet one!
Pan fried the pork chops.
Then chopped up various veg that needed to be ate up.
Then all put in the oven for 20 minutes.
Tea is served on a bed of basmati rice.
Yum!
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
It looks like the rain is coming in this afternoon.
So the sexy lumo trousers be out later on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a wet sloppy 😘 before I leave.
Far too cold to wear the Summer coat.
On goes the winter coat with gloves!
I turned on my lights.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
Car drivers were having to slam their brakes on a bit more this morning.
I just lower my stick, and on goes their brakes!
A few banging of the gums.....
At least I finished in one piece!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home. 
Puts on  the coffee machine.
Now to drag the spin bike into the Living room.
Put a good film on to watch while spinning...
Warms the muscles up and start spinning for 25 minutes!
Cooled down.
Now for coffee!
Now to write yesterday's blog up to lunchtime.
Lunchtime.
Those sexy lumo trousers were put on before I left....

Then it starts to rain!
Not just light rain, but heavy rain.
I have a chat with my friend before I start.
Now to have more fun in the rain!
I'm glad I have my boots and gloves on!
Car drivers were leaving it late to brake again!
At least I finished in one piece, and just a bit damp!

Welcome to July!😎
Once the alarm was turned, I fell back to sleep...
Looked at my watch it was 6.50!!!!
Got up, washed and changed.
Woke up kids.
Breakfast with a slurp of brew.
Gave out my sloppy wet 💋💋💋 to everyone.
Now out of the house I go.
Wearing some fancy trousers...
Time to wear the summer coat!
Tree pic.
Now for the fun to start!
The Cheeky Window Cleaner shouted through his window to me:
"You still left your pyjamas on!"
Cheek!
Didn't see the Lambo...
Instead  a nice white McLaren sports car went past me.
A few cars had to test their brakes!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Last day for the Bunting to be up in the garden!
Much needed coffee.
Younger son wasn't up,
So we didn't go to Bidford car boot this week.
Instead I did some shopping on-line on the Dunelm website....
"Sale Time!"
My new trainers had arrived. 
However, looking at the size of the box.
(Being on the small size)
It turns out they are a size 10!
(I am size 12!)
Wrapped the packet back up, and going to send it back later.
Now to get tea made for later...
Rolled out the pastry.
A bit of blind bake time...
Fried up some peppers, mushrooms, garlic and spinach in a pan.
Once done, I checked the jar of Pesto.
(Gone off!)
I used a carton of  Tomato Passata instead.
Added everything, and put it in the oven for later.
Watered the plants outside.
I had a bit of missmatch for lunch.
Run out of salad, just had bits of the fridge.
I left the house a bit early to post the parcel.
 I put on the 50's CD on I bought at the weekend.
Kept playing one song over and over again,
As it is that feel good feeling!
The song is:
Posted the trainers back,
First Class Recorded Delivery.
Now down to do my afternoon shift of Lollipop.
The sun was trying to break out of the clouds.
Summer coat went on.
Now for bedlam to start.
There were two coachers parked further up the road, which caused a backlog of car trying to get pass them. A lorry further down the road, had car drivers backing up the otherside of the road.
Cars everywhere!
Banging of gums as well, especially when I had to stop the car drivers.
One man went past and shouted to me:
"You didn't stop me!"
"I will next time!" I laughed.
Parents were still trying to cross behind the coaches to get over the road in front of moving traffic!
At least I finished in one piece.
I was going to get a drink from the near-by mini-mart.
As I was picking up by Dunelm order, I might as well nip into Lidl and get a drink.
Picked up my order from Dunelm.
Picked a salad and a drink from Lidl next.
Back home to see the Bunting had been took down!
Time to unpack my bargains from Dunelm.
At least the house is going to smell nice :)
I caught up on 3 days newspapers.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Time to slice up the tart!
So yum!
Nice long look into today's newspaper.
