Out With The Old, In Comes The New!

 One way to help the weather make up its mind is to hang out washing - Marcelene Cox
Welcome to my SaturdayπŸ“
Time to listen Sounds of the 60's in bed with a cup of tea. 
The Top 3 from 1969 was:
3:Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well (Parts 1 &2)↓
2:The Tremeloes - Call Me Number One↓
1: The Archies - Sugar Sugar ↓
Now for some singing along with some big tunes.
Time for breakfast.
Dressed.
I take our two sons out, while hubby waits in for the Tiler to come.
 There was too much traffic around for the time of the morning. I tried to get into a lane, and no one would let me in, so I did to go around another island and head back to the island I needed to go around!
Drops one son off at work.
Then off to Sainsburys we go.
Got some bits and pieces.
Now round to see mum and dad.
One 7 balloon had gone down from last week.
Said goodbye to my parents.
Off to Lidl we go.
Where has all of the crisps gone?
Overlockers in↑
Sewing Threads in as well.
Got our bits and pieces.
Back home.
The Tiler was doing a great job.
Got all of the old tiles off the walls.
Now to put on the new tiles.
We all were sorting out the front garden.
Putting holes in the bottom of the plant pots.
Hubby got all the leaves up and put them in the composters.
I went out to have a chat with Joe's sister.
There was a nice sunset....
I said goodbye to Joe's sister and went back home.
The Tiler has done a great job.
He will be finishing it tomorrow \o/
We might just have enough tiles for the final wall.
We caught up with the final of season 20 of Hell's Kitchen.
Tea time.
Then 4 episodes of Top Of The Pops from 1991.
The fast forward button was well pressed.
At least a good number one was still there to be played.
Magic Bag time!
A good film to watch tomorrow...

Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way!

There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn - Albert Camus
Welcome to my Hump of the Week πŸͺ
Trying to rest the knee as much as I can!
Brew with a warm hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby got my newspaper before work.
I gave him a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before left for work.
One son also a had wet one before he left for school too.
Coffee time

Look in the newspaper↓

I got the pastry rolled out and added to the dish for tonight's meal.
My younger brother turned up with the forms I had to sign.
One happy soul as normal!
Stirring the poop with everyone as normal.
He hasn't inherited the tact button in his mouth from our dad.
"If you can't say nothing nice, don't say it at all!" I repeated that phase to him.
The Solicitor wanted to know where my late mum's will was.
They did joint wills, however my dad didn't want to pay for the storage of it. So Prodical son made him write out another one.
Pity that other will can't be found as I know for a fact, the Prodical son isn't in that one!
God knows how long it will sort out to close this final bank account of my dad's....
After January 2021 no doubt!
I blind baked the pastry.
 Once it had cooled down, I mixed the double cream and eggs with a dash of basil.
Added the peppers, garlic, goat's cheese and spring onions in the tart base.
Added the everything else and left it in the oven for later.
Now to blog!
Lunchtime!

More parcels came to keep the postman happy↓
Finished writing yesterday's blog post \o/
Just in time for Tea at 3.

Time to draw the curtains.
Caught up on reading the week's newspapers.

As it's been a bit of a grey Hump Day πŸͺ
