Finding Loads Of Things!

The happiest time of anyone's life is just after the first divorce -
J.K Galbraith.
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
Nice hug to start Sunday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
A big tune started on the radio.

Starts off Sunday with a big song!
Now to add the layers....
Now to get some fresh air!
First stop was to check the tyre pressures.
Next stop, Pick up a take-away coffee.
Fill up Sexy Beast and grab a newspaper.
Off to see my mum and dad next.
Blue milk added :)
Got one of the hats I bought yesterday, on.
At least it's keeping the head warm.
I had a quick chat with my mum and dad.
It will be the second anniversary of my dad passing away on the 5th February ;'(
Gets back home.
Washing machine goes on.
Now to carry on with sorting out the cupboards in the kitchen.
Loads of things found the cupboards.
Somethings were put in there, when I first moved in, over 10 years ago!
Hubby washed out all the shelves. 
Once the things have dried after being washed,
They were put back in.
The measuring jug went in the cupboard with the other measuring jugs.
Once 3 loads from the washing machine had been done, the tumble drier went on.
We finished off the soup that was left over from yesterday.
Afterwards, hubby went to check his tyres, and fill up for the week.
I meanwhile, had two blog posts to wrote.
The duck went in the oven for tea.
Once finished my blogging,
Tea was ready.
For such a big duck, there was hardly any meat!
We had sweet potato mash, one son suddenly decided he likes it now!
(Can't win!!!)
I had a look in today's newspaper.

"When you make a mistake, admit it. If you don't, you only make matters worst." - Ward Cleaver
Welcome to my Saturday 😎
It was nice to have a early cup of tea and listen to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed.
Time for another brew 
&
Breakfast in bed.
Hubby got up to drop off son at work.
I meanwhile had to hang the cloths outside in the sunshine to dry...
Washing machine goes back on to wash the kids's uniforms.
Hubby comes back with a much needed bacon sandwich!
I need 2 more peg hangers as one isn't enough!
I ordered two more from Dunelm.
Not long later, I went and collected my order.
Quick look around before I pick up my order.
Too big to get into our Living room :(
I went past my late dad's house, and a 58 black van was just coming out from the drive, it followed us down the road until we turned off.
Perhaps it was the new owner looking over the house he has just bought. 
Gets back home to unpack my order.
Sausage rolls for lunch.
Hubby and younger son is going off to visit hubby's dad as it's his birthday today \o/
I meanwhile had lots to do at home....
Washing machine to be loaded up again.
I ran out of room on the washing lines outside.
3 loads had to go in the tumble drier.
Hubby went to say hello to his mum first.
The blossom was nice in the graveyard.
His dad liked his present.
It went straight up on his wall.
I meanwhile had my playlist blasting out.
Plenty of singing to do while updating the blog.
Inbetween singing and blogging.

I had a break of doing all the that by picking up son from his job.
Once back.
  The cottage pies were put in the oven.
Back to blogging and singing.

Pete Ham  was a Welsh singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known as a lead vocalist of and composer for the 1970s rock band Badfinger, whose hit songs include "No Matter What", "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue". He also co-wrote the ballad "Without You", a worldwide number-one hit for Harry Nilsson that has become a standard covered by hundreds of artists. Ham was granted two Ivor Novello Awards related to the song in 1973.
Ham committed suicide in 1975 at the age of 27, when he became depressed while embroiled in band-related issues, such as label and management problems, as well as a lack of funds. The emotional scar his death left on Badfinger eventually led to the suicide of former bandmate Tom Evans in 1983. 
He died on this day in 1975.
Harold Reid was a member of The Statler Brothers (American country music, gospel vocal group.They sang as opening act and backup singers for Johnny Cash). He died on this day in 2020  after a long battle with kidney failure, at age 80.
Sleep tea time.
Off to that warm bed.....
