The happiest time of anyone's life is just after the first divorce -
J.K Galbraith.
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
Nice hug to start Sunday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
A big tune started on the radio.
I just had to join in...
Sung nice and loud!
Starts off Sunday with a big song!
Now to add the layers....
Now to get some fresh air!
First stop was to check the tyre pressures.
Next stop, Pick up a take-away coffee.
Fill up Sexy Beast and grab a newspaper.
Off to see my mum and dad next.

Got one of the hats I bought yesterday, on.
At least it's keeping the head warm.
I had a quick chat with my mum and dad.
It will be the second anniversary of my dad passing away on the 5th February ;'(
Gets back home.
Washing machine goes on.
Now to carry on with sorting out the cupboards in the kitchen.
Loads of things found the cupboards.
Somethings were put in there, when I first moved in, over 10 years ago!
Hubby washed out all the shelves. 
Once the things have dried after being washed,
They were put back in.
The measuring jug went in the cupboard with the other measuring jugs.
Once 3 loads from the washing machine had been done, the tumble drier went on.
We finished off the soup that was left over from yesterday.
Afterwards, hubby went to check his tyres, and fill up for the week.
I meanwhile, had two blog posts to wrote.
The duck went in the oven for tea.
Once finished my blogging,
Tea was ready.
For such a big duck, there was hardly any meat!
We had sweet potato mash, one son suddenly decided he likes it now!
(Can't win!!!)
I had a look in today's newspaper.
