Would Nice To Have A Extension!

That's the trouble with life - crap dialogue and bad lighting - Elizabeth Taylor
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
We had a little lie-in.
We did today Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew time.
Thermal vest went on as well lots of layers.
We went outside to tidy up the garden while the sun is out!
Let's "hope" these two storage units are going to moved soon. As it blocks the light in my Dining room and my younger son's bedroom.
Pity the previous neighbour never said anything, as it blocks the light in four rooms!
Speaking of the house next door.
It took the Council, 3 days to remove all the stuff out of the house, and shed. There is a greenhouse going and lots of Bamboo if anyone is interested!
The ex-wife's china was left in the greenhouse.
Chicken pen.
Empty shed.
Just would to know the houses into one.
Make that house look lovely.
Pity the council didn't nothing about the Bamboo, that's going to be the pig to get rid off it.
Anyone with a Panda wanting any Bamboo? 
We carried on tidying our garden up to lunch.
Liquid lunch time.
With coffee.
Done some homework and put on the tea.
Quick look into the newspaper.

Happy 2023!

Goes In With A Basket....

Biologically speaking, if something bites you, it is more likely to be female - Desmond Morris.
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
We got up early to have breakfast out.
Where has the sun gone?
I didn't have the fried breakfast.
Everyone did. 
The kids went for free.
I chatted with the waitress when I paid for the Breakfast. She commented when she was working through Covid Lockdown at another pub.
One man wouldn't give his details for Track and Trace and threated to slap her is he wasn't allowed in. She said he was on camera and the Police be called if he raises his hand to her.
He suddenly left after that.
I said,"You have more patience than me!"
Then off to see my mum and dad.
Dropped the kids back home.
We went back out.
Hope it isn't going to rain!
Robin came in to look at the Bird food section.
Got all the bits what I wanted.
Going to pop next door to the other Garden Centre.
Goes in with a basket, and to change it for a trolley instead!
Gets home.
Unpacks all the things I got.
Coffee time.
We did the Heardles before we started on the garden.
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Potted all the plants in the garden.
Hubby added some jam to the wasp catchers, we hung them up in the Plum Tree.
Once finished.
We had a light tea.
Now for more telly watching..
then onto Talking Pictures...
Next up...
Really good film!
Quick look into today's newspaper.
