Going Up Up Up

 I've killed so many plants.I walked into a nursery once and my face was on a wanted poster - Rita Rudner
Welcome to my Sunday Love💓
I woke up at 7.20am and needed a cup of brew.
I left Sleeping Beauty have a lie in.
I got on writing my blog posts for the last 3 days.
After I wrote Thursday's, he appeared like magic!
More brew, breakfast and warm hug soon followed.
Got dressed.
Now to go out for some fresh air in Sexy Beast.
Checks the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then home.
Hubby and kids put up the Christmas Decs and tree.
Hubby puts the Christmas decs outside.
I wrote Friday's blog post up to lunch.
The Christmas Tree is looking nice once more :)
The Naughty Elf is after my Teas!
Today's Tea is:
While I was writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby gets out the Ab's machine.
He has the whole time of the 12" of "The Race" by Yello to do as many Stomach Crunches as he can in 13 mins and 25 seconds
He manages 110.
Once he cools down, he goes for a shower.
I keep a eye on tea in the oven.
Publishes all 3 blog posts.
Now to dish up the tea!
We all catch up on Friday's episode of
"Have I Got News For You"
Now to carry on with the series=
  Live and Death Row.
Series 1: 2 of 3 Judgement 
This film follows the trial of 26-year-old Guy Heinze Jr, with remarkable access to the jury members charged with reaching a verdict on allegations that Heinze beat his father and seven members of his family to death. As the trial progresses, there is legal manoeuvring while evidence about the brutal killings unfolds.
Series 1: 3 of 3 Crisis Stage. 
The final film of the series follows 25-year-old legal student Kelly Hickman as she attempts to save two of the young killers facing execution in America.
Kelly volunteers at the University of Houston Death Penalty Clinic, a team of Texan students who help mount last-ditch legal appeals for killers on death row.
The team are working on two 'crisis cases' - cases where all of the offenders' normal legal appeals have failed and they are now just weeks away from execution.
Robert Pruett was sentenced to death for murdering a prison guard at the age of 20. He was already one of the youngest killers in the American prison system, having been sentenced to 99 years for his involvement in another murder at the age of 16.
Robert Garza was a member of the notorious Tri-City Bombers street gang and was sentenced to death at the age of 20 for his part in the drive-by killing of four young women.
As execution day dawns, Kelly feels frustratingly shut out of the legal process, confined to her office and following events over the internet and the phone as news filters through of an eleventh-hour intervention by the Supreme Court 
Series 2: 1 of 4 = Execution 
Series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it.
On March 11 2009, Daniel Lopez was pulled over for driving erratically. The dramatic car chase that ensued killed a police officer and 27-year-old Daniel was given the death penalty. Unusually for a death row prisoner, he is resisting all appeals to block his execution - which is due in five weeks time. The state-appointed attorneys for Lopez are arguing that their client is using the justice system as a form of suicide. His family are also pleading with him to fight the execution and stay alive for them. With access to Daniel, his lawyers, his parents and the widow of the police officer that Daniel killed, this film follows the lead up to 'execution day'. Will Daniel go to his death, as he insists he wants to do, or will the people who love him be able to save him?
Series 2: 2 of 4 = Punishment.
Series telling the story of capital punishment through the eyes of young people whose lives have been shaped by it. With unprecedented access inside prison walls, it discovers what it's like to live with the threat of the death chamber, as well as hearing from victims and their families, and the family of those on death row - some praying for execution, some hoping for a reprieve. Each episode focuses on different aspects of the system - execution, punishment and the complex nature of 'truth'.
In April 2013, 18-year-old Shawn Ford Jr was charged with killing his girlfriend's parents with a sledgehammer. Now he is on trial for his life and a jury of 12 ordinary people must decide whether he should live or die. This film follows the court case from the inside, as both the family of the victims and the defendant struggle to come to terms with such a horrific crime. But it is the jurors who must ultimately decide Shawn's fate. As the details of the shocking murders mount, can an impassioned plea for mercy from Shawn's mother save her son's life?
Sleep Tea Time  
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow...🎡

It might be 8c, but it feels a lot colder.
Now to look at the Christmas Lights.
Puts on my lights.
Now let's go to work...🍭 
Oh dear, it was getting worst as my shift went on. No one was stopping, just kept going under my stick and just giving me the look when they went past.
Oh well, at least me feet are still on the pavement!
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way to get my back wiper changed.
He came out, and in seconds it was done.
"It looks quick, but I have been doing since I was 12 years old!"
"Wow," I replied.
I said "Goodbye," and drove home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Loaded up the dishwasher and put it on.
Now for that much needed coffee!

I noticed my parcel I had ordered was delivered to the nearby supermarket. I will pick it up afterwards.

Cars were actually stopping for me!
This carried on until I finished.
Now to fetch the parcel from the supermarket.
It is massive and heavy.
(Good job I left my lollystick in the car)
Now for the journey home.
One white car I was following, decided to signel right at the roundabout.
He was in the outer lane, I was in the left hand lane. I carried on over the roundabout, and I looked at my mirror and woe and be hold the white car was following instead of turning right!
I was glad to get home!
Time to put the tea in the oven.
Nice cup of brew to keep warm.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he comes home.
Now for tea to be served.
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Freddy Mercury: The Final Act.
The story of the extraordinary final chapter of Freddie Mercury’s life and how, after his death from Aids, Queen staged one of the biggest concerts in history, the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley Stadium, to celebrate his life and challenge the prejudices around HIV/Aids.
The film hears from those who performed at the epic gig, including Gary Cherone (Extreme), Roger Daltrey (The Who), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Lisa Stansfield and Paul Young, as well as the concert’s promoter, Harvey Goldsmith.
For the first time, Freddie's story is told alongside the experiences of those who tested positive for HIV and lost loved ones during the same period. Medical practitioners, survivors and human rights campaigners, including Peter Tatchell, recount the intensity of living through the Aids pandemic and the moral panic it brought about.
Afterwards we caught up with the news.
Looked in today's newspaper.
Eddie Rabbitt was an American country music singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions", "I Love a Rainy Night" (a number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.
