Drawing It To A Close!

All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act with out the benefit of experience - Henry Miller
 Welcome to my Monday🎈
No Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑 just yet...
Hug with brew.
The youngest son was hogging the bathroom.
Nice big queue forming on the landing...
Good job we have a separate toilet room!
Hubby fetched my newspaper.
Gave him a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he left.
Both kids had more sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left to go to school.
I had a quick coffee..

He also performed as a session and live-performing saxophonist with the band Foreigner during the 1980s.He died on this day in 1995 aged 64.
  I had to catch up with my blog.
Two blog posts to write up....
Once I done that...
I had a early lunch...
Now to do a mini Great British Sewing Bee Challenge...
To make the curtain I made on Friday, much wider to fit the window!
And add 3 layers of thermal material to it as well....
On my Christmas list is a metal 60cm ruler,
As I only have 2 plastic 30 cms rulers...
No Tea at 3 as I was hard at work sewing the curtain....
*We turn on all the Christmas Lights at 4pm..*
I finally finish extending the curtain!
Now to see how it looks in the window!
Hubby just comes home when it goes up.
I give him a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ and bear hug.
We have a meat-free Stir Fry.
My Amazon driver couldn't find me and went back to the depot with my order.
They will try again tomorrow!
We watch up to the final of season 10 of Hell's Kitchen.
With Sleep Tea of course.
I hope I'm not coming down with something, as I feel awful :(
