Welcome to Monday!
Let's hop onto my tiny Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡

 I had breakfast.
Got dressed.
Not out for our daily walk↓
 Under the bridge↓
 Went past my late dad's house↓
We walked 1 and 1/2 miles altogether.

Back home to hang 3 baskets of wet washing on the line.

Giving It A Good Workout!

Blood is thicker than water and much more difficult to get out of the carpet - Woody Allen
Welcome to a humid, sweaty Tuesday.
Once we had breakfast, and I gave hubby a sloppy 💋, he left the house.
I had a date with a paint brush today!
I put on some old clothes...
I gave the garden a good water,
Hung more washing on the line.
Now for...↓
 Coffee and vitamin C.
The big black box of tools had to be dragged out from under the stairs and opened.
I found my sander....↓
 Once the 3 shelves were sanded down.
Going to give the paint brush a good work out!
 They were given 2 coats in total,
Dried out in the sunshine.
 Now to paint the kitchen cabinet...
 My vitamins were delivered,
As long as my son's new curtains for his bedroom↓
 While I was painting,
My kids went over to visit their Granddad.
A quick lunch↓
 I applied the second coats of paint to the kitchen cabinet.
It was getting well warm now.
Time for a sucky!
 Off to work I go....
 I came back with a lovely red face...
Ice Cream time!
The final delivery of the day..
A new curtain pole for my son's room!
(Fingers crossed it will be put up later!)  
The cabinet is now finished!
 While eating out tea,
It started to rain..
A mad dash to get all of the washing in.
 While there was a break in the rain.
I went off to do my final job of the day with some great music↓
 I came back home and it was still warm...
I ordered more paint,
As the other two 1960s units I have in the dining room is going to be repainted .
So I have a trio of cabinets in the same colour.
We had a good bout of thunder and lightening at about 1am.
Even with earplugs in,
I could still hear it!
