Shut That Lid!

 Sine I've retired, I eat less, weigh less, train less and care less - 
Ray Mancini 
Welcome to my Saturday πŸ‘…
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed.
Great selections of good tunes to start Saturday with.
Brew with hug.
Hubby and son left the house to do this week's food shopping and next door neighbour's shopping as well.
I went outside for fresh air.
Followed by the important coffee...
Hubby came back after a while with all the shopping.
I had wrote half of yesterday's blog post.
However, I had to leave it as we had to fetch my yellow paint from Alcester!
Nice ride out!
No trip into Waitrose,
As I have to save as much money as possible as my the MOT on Sexy Beast is next week!
Collects my pot of paint \o/
We have a walk down the high street.
We grab a takeaway coffee with nibble.
Someone in a big car dropped off some bags of clothes and put them in the charity bins by us.
Only forgot to close the boot lid, they got out by the entrance of the car park to close it, and something was blocking it closing.
After several attempts she finally shut the boot lid!
Back home.
Finally get the skirting done this week \o/
Then we went for a walk around the block for 25 minutes.
Hubby put the gamon in the oven when we got back.
I had a quick look into today's newspaper.

Talk Talk & A Bit More

 Hold a true friend with both hands - Nigerian Proverb
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’ͺ
Cup of Brew with warm hug to start the day!
I got the kids up ready for school.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
I then to go to give my kids their sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before they go to school.
Time for a quick coffee.
Then off to get results of my blood test from two weeks ago.
I was the only one waiting.
I goes in early to see the Nurse.
We got chatting and then she realised that she has 3 patients to see in the waiting room.
I will see her in 6 months time. 
Back to the Sexy Beast I go. 
I went past my late dad's house.
It's looking like a public car park now.
Four cars parked on the drive.
Back home.
Unloads and loads up dishwasher.
Time to write yesterday's blog.
I didn't have any post which I thought was funny as I am expecting at least  one crafting magazine!
The wallpaper border I bought on 8th March is still stuck in the Hermes network, I might have to ask for a replacement!  
Going back to writing my blog,
The post appeared at 2.20pm?????????
Nice stamps 
(Which I have kept)
I got a feeling it was wrongly delivered to one of the factories around here!
Let's see which craft magazine it is....
Lots of nice things to make in here.
Tea at 3.
Hubby is going to see his dad after work.
I found an ideal cleaning job near me.
However the pay was a bit poop↓
Oh well, keep on looking.
As soon as Boris has his press conference.
I had the certain email 15 mins later....
No need to shield after 31st March.
Fingers crossed we don't have another bad wave of Covid coming after the country has been opened up in June!
At least I am having my second jab before 25th May...
Hubby meanwhile might be lucky and have his first jab in May..... 
I put on the tea early.
Now to watch a film.
I looked on Netflix, then on Prime Video.
I found the film I was looking for since Valentine's Day↓
Tea time.
Hubby comes back after the film has finished.
He has a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
He gives me today's newspaper.
Chuck Berry  was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. Nicknamed the "Father of Rock and Roll", Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive with songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958). Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.
He died on this day aged 90 in 2017. 
Now to catch up with Line of Duty.
Sleep Tea time.
We had another 10 mins to go but after having a lavender shower I was ready for bed!
At least the Friday Feeling 🎈is back tomorrow!

They were put into the oven for later.
I put the linguine in the saucepan too.
Back to decluttering!
Sorted out all the wicker draws in the Living room.

Quick tea at 3.
I have freed up so much room now.
I have some more craft magazines coming over the next few days to fill that space I made!
My son practiced making his dessert he is making for GCSE food exam next week.
He is trying out his recipe today.
On Friday he will try our Mary Berry's recipe.
