Can't Even Sign It Right!

If you expect nothing from anyone, you're never disappointed - Sylvia Plath
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Much needed warm hug with brew!
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Off out for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
Said hello to everyone in the newspaper shop.
My dad's drive is now down to 2 cars now \o/
It still feels cold...
Much needed cup of coffee needed!
Hubby loaded up all the metal we had got into his car, from taking apart son's old metal bed.
Plus a old lamp base and next door old portable heaters went in hubby's car.
Hubby and younger son went off to get it all weighed in.
Meanwhile the other son was still bagging crap up from his bedroom.
While tiding up the kitchen, it came on the radio that Prince Philip has passed away.
I wasn't in the mood for somber music.
My uplift playlist was up on.....
Of all the metal we weighed in.
We made £5.80!
(40 kilos)
Lunchtime.
As it's National Unicorn Day,
Out came the cup!
I started to write yesterday's blog post.
The bags were building up from my son's room.
My younger brother dropped through the letterbox I needed to sign another form yet again.
The same form I signed last month, and got a witness to sign it.
One of the brother's witnesses signed the form wrong....
    GREAT! 
It's took over a month to sort this mess out again. FFS.How difficult is it for someone to sign their bloody name in the right place!!!!!
The buyer isn't hurrying his end to sign his documents to send to his solicitors either!
Tea at 3. 
Hubby loaded up his car full of the black bags and head down to the tip with younger son.
I meanwhile started on the tea.
They had to wait 20 minutes and they were in.
Tea was ready when they came back.
Mince with mushrooms, onions with Lingine.
No telly on at all.
We listened to Greatest Hits radio instead.
I did look in today's newspaper.
