My new gas cooker was being delivered between 9am -11am.
Now to drop off son at work.
Dropped off son.
Then to get some petrol for Sexy Beast.
Every pump was being used when I got to the Petrol Station. There was a panic buying of petrol last night in Redditch!
The cashier couldn't believe how many people he served last night for petrol. I just shook my head and paid for my small amount of petrol! 
I gets home. 
 Coffee Time
The Gas Engineer we normally use to install our cookers was free at 1pm to uninstall and install the new cooker.
I had a blog post to write....
The new gas cooker arrived in the time it was due.
3 years ago, I had my old cooker fitted in.
We had a early lunch.
The Gas Engineer came.
We had a catch up since last time we met.
He caught Covid from going to Cheltenham Races in March 2020.
He was that bad for 4 months, and lost 4 stone in weight. His brother also caught Covid and has scaring of the lungs.
Then he showed me how much his gas and electric bill is going up next month....
He uninstalled the old oven and installed the news one.
We paid him and thanked him for coming.
Now I have to go my Tarot/Crystal Course.
Really good time was had by all.
The group sung "Happy Birthday " to me.
We practiced Chakra Healing again.
I bought some more nice incense.
Got a lift back home.
Finished off blog post,
While hubby christened the new oven.
Tea time.
We watched another episode of "Fame" season 2.
I recognised a young actor who appeared in Godfather 2 and City Slickers.
Bruno Kirby.
We packed the overnight bags.
Left the house...
We got to the nice hotel.
Reception area.
The Receptionist was so friendly.
She asked,"Where we had been for Tea?"
"Home," I replied.
We signed for the key.
Now to explore the room!
Now to go downstairs for a drink.
We had a look about before we went back to our room.

Can't Find Me Again!

He may have hair upon his chest but sister, so has Lassie .....
- Cole Porter, I Hate Men
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Enjoyed a brew with hug!
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I got the kids up ready for school.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he left for work.
Both kids had 💋💋 before they left for school.
Loaded up dishwasher.
I was hoping my yellow paint might arrive between 9.30 -11.30am so I can carry on painting the skirting up the stairs.
Nice cup of coffee to start the morning off with!
Now to write yesterday's blog!
Email from the delivery company...
Couldn't find my house,
Paint gone back to depot,
Try again tomorrow!
GREAT!
Let's hope they find me tomorrow!
I also have the Plumber coming tomorrow to service the boiler, let's hope he turns up this time....
I wrote and published yesterday's blog.
No painting to be done....
Tidy up instead.
First declutted some of the Dining Room.
A lot was from my late dad's house.
Including the infamous Chef cookie jar I bought my late parents.
Moved it to a safer place 
(I hope!)
I found a Birthday present and card that I got for a ex-friend over four years ago.
While I was on my previous lollypop job, I had the card and present in my lollypop coat pocket.Because it was raining at the time, she didn't come out of the car to fetch it! I had got home later and left it on the table. She dropped off my son after school, I texted her to wait for my son to get her present. She didn't wait but drove off!
Card went in the recycle bin.
I'm sure I can reuse the presents again in the near future.
I got more recycling done, all the way up to lunch.
Back to doing some tidying up.
I found some old ceramic flour and bread jars and they went into the kitchen window.
Like  those below↓
I had a nice long chat with my Lollypop boss, 
It was nice to have a chat!
Tea at 3. 
I told one of my sons that if he don't get his bedroom tidied, I will be in there tomorrow....
He thinks I'm joking!!!!
The white vinegar I put a order in, failed to arrive today.
Hoping it will turn up tomorrow.
Now to start on tea for tonight.
The pork meatballs I got from Waitrose last week were crap!
Ended up with more mince in the pan afterwards!
Chopped up some mushrooms, onions, garlic and some peppers to it all.
Chopped tomatos went over it.
Lingine went in the saucepan.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Tea was served up.
We watched today's Judge Rinder.
Quick read of today's newspaper.

I rewatched last week's Motorway Cops
(As I missed the first half) 
The BMW driver featured in this one doing over 150 mph on the motorway!
New series of Traffic Cops to watch as well.
We caught up with the newspaper review.
Sleep tea time.
Let's hope people find my house tomorrow

I will have to tie those red lacey knickers to the lamp post outside!
