The Kitchen Wall Trying To Move.....

 Welcome to my Monday 🎈
(No getting on the wobbly work wheel 🎑 due to a TE Day)
Brew with warm hug.
Gave hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
It turns out the kids had a TE day so no online learning for them.
I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Opened up my Jukebox on Twitter....
I took my youngest son out for some fresh air.
Still feels cold.
I got the newspaper.
Then off to visit Morrisons for some bits.
Not bad price for a bit of Dirty Harry...
Then we had to face the red light.
Back home for a quick lunch.
Two weeks of post turned up!
I will be alright for fabric for a bit!

Back to another Lockdown.
At least my kids can learn on line.

Sleep tea time.
7 weeks off from doing my Lollipop job!
My kitchen wall is going to move next door from me talking to it too much!
At least my kids can escape to their bedrooms to get away from my singing!
Even my sewing machine is going to moan about being used to much!
And some use out of Kenny too!
