 Mother's Day.
Welcome to my Mothering Sunday 🎕
I had a lovely brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest went on.
I had a lovely present from one son.
My other son got me a ticket for Craft Event for last Sunday at the NEC.
(I couldn't go because of I had Covid)
I hope my mum likes her balloon.
Now we are off to look around a car boot!
In need of a coffee....
Lots of stalls to walk around.
Pots for the garden, 50p each.
Free F1 Books.
We walked around twice.
Talked to one woman I know from my Lollypop job.She asked where I had been?
"There is a lot going round,"She said.
Back to the car, moving onto the Recycle Place in Stratford.
I got a nice bit of LLoyd Loom for £5.
On the way home, we got stuck in 5 way lights!
One of the queues when we went past was nearly a mile long.
Goes to the Co-op to get reduced veg for the soup this week.
Nice drink & nibble when we got out!
Gets back home to unload the car.
I start chopping the veg for the Soup Maker.
Puts the shopping away, and all the things we got from the car boot.
Soup time!
Afterwards, it was time to sort out Sexy Beast.
Checked the tyres.
Put a little bit of fuel in.
Then back home.
Took all the washing off the line.
Sorted it all out.
I left hubby to sort out the tea for tonight.
I had a blog post from yesterday to write.
Once it was done,
Tea was ready.
Roast Pork Tea.
Quick look in the newspaper afterwards.

 “The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation.” —James E. Faust
 Mother's Day.
Hug with Brew.
Thinking of my mum, that passed away 8 years ago in May :(
I got some nice presents from my 2 sons.
The squeezy lama will help with my stress levels!
Now to get out of the house for a bit.
My hubby dropped in my resignation letter to work.
I had a dedication for me read out on the radio for Mother's Day from my hubby and kids.
Always need a bit of Barry...\o/
Now for a Mother's Day treat.
This makes up for no Birthday cake on my Birthday.
Gets back home.
Off for a walk around the block.
Felt better for that :)
I had left 3 messages for younger brother to come and collect the paperwork I signed for the Solicitors.
I left it out on the front door step for him to collect.He must have got at least one, and it came and collected it!
All I have to wait now for is the Prodical brother to sign it, and the house can be finally be sold \o/ 
Light lunch time.
I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Even had time to put some tunes on the Jukebox.
The smell of white spirit has now disappeared from the washing machine \o/

with the Tumble drier on for twice.
Hubby put my picture back up in the toilet in a new frame,

Robbing The Cup Of Soup!

Anything good in life is either Illegal,immoral or fattening 
- Murphy's law
Welcome to Mother's Day 💮💮
Thinking of my late mum....
 (She passed away in 2013)
I enjoyed a much needed lie-in.
 I enjoyed a lovely hug and tea↑
Had some adult time.....;)
Once we got up,
More boxes to sort out...
Empty boxes were put outside for my younger brother to collect.
My younger son made me a nice Mother's Day meal↓
 Hubby tried to go down the tip and the queue was too long.
He came back, unloaded the car.
I found the clock my mum bought my dad.
On the wall that went↓
 Hubby went food shopping with my younger son.
I still had to tidy up the house!!!
When they came back.
I was given flowers!💮💮
 I unloaded the shopping and loaded up the dishwasher.
I went outside for some nice fresh air↓
So much for people stopping in.
The lake near us had been packed for 2 days running.
As my late dad once said:
"The sun brings out people like Freckles!" 
Hubby loaded up the car and tried to go the tip again.
It was closed.
He had to come back and unload the car.
While I was making the pie.
My younger brother was having a text spat with my hubby.
We had gone around to my late dad's house yesterday. I brought back my Horror film book, 2 packs of baby wipes and 8 boxes of cup of soup.
My younger brother said:
"I should have told him, I was taking the cup of soup!"
My reply to that was:
"Funny he hasn't told me the beds, all the furniture that has disappeared!"
He then accused us of taking my dad's clothers and cleaning things.
My hubby put him right on a few things...
Then got blocked for it!
Roll on with no more messages from him..
(I have blocked him from everything.)
The Chicken,Mushroom and Leek Pie is ready!
 Now to chill with Miss Marple↓
