Time For The Earth To Move!

When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife - Prince Philip 
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 🍍
We had our brew and breakfast early, as we were expecting a shopping order from Waitrose, early.
Got dressed.
I went outside to get some fresh air while waiting.
Hubby had to go to work.
He had a wave from me.
When the shopping arrived,
One of my sons took the shopping from the driver.
The driver commented, "I didn't know there were houses down here!"
I replied from my kitchen,"If I had a £1 for everyone saying that, I wouldn't be living here."
I thanked him for delivering my shopping.
I unpacked it and put it away.
Coffee time.
With a little nibble...
Afterwards I unloaded the dishwasher.
The sun was shining,
Now to enjoy it!
Now to have move the Toucans about in the garden...
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Once that was done.
Time to finish off the soup!
Then I finished answering all the answers to the 8 stages of my Crystal course I have been doing.
I will hand them in on Saturday.
Only 2 more weeks left!
Tea at 3.
I practiced doing a tarot reading on myself.
I just can't get on with these Tarot cards.
I looked up at the meaning for these cards using the booklet that came with the pack.
Didn't make much sense.
Used another Tarot book on meanings of the cards and I understand  it better.
Time to put the tea on....
Hubby came back and went to take a Covid Test.
I dished up the tea.
2 Types of Pasta with mushrooms,garlic, red onions and Spinach.
Hubby's test was negative.
I will do one later on.
We carried on watching 
Series 3 of Amazing Hotels.
