I Don't Do Floppy!

        Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? - Mae West
Welcome to my Tuesday 💪
Nice warm hug with brew.
Gets kids up as they having the First injection of the Covid-19 vaccine.
I give hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he goes to work.
We soon follow out of the door.
Gets the newspaper on the way. 
One son wanted me to go in with him while he has jab.
The woman on the door, say:
"His brother can go with him the same time as his jab."
"That's good, I won't hear the screams from my car,"I replied walking back to Sexy Beast.
"So we have to hear them then?"She replied.
A good 20 minutes they came out. Sore arms, but everything was fine.
Back home for a much needed coffee.
Does a bit of housework.
Now to plan for tonight's evening meal.
I need mushrooms and garlic!
Out again....
Gets some more nice room spray for the bathroom!
Plus a king size yellow sheet was in the sale :)
Got the bits I need for tonight's tea from  Lidl.
Back home.
Chops up the mushrooms, onions and garlic,
Then put it the pan for later.
Next was to water the garden.
I put the things back up on the wall by the front door.
