Out With The Old, In Comes The New!

 One way to help the weather make up its mind is to hang out washing - Marcelene Cox
Welcome to my SaturdayπŸ“
Time to listen Sounds of the 60's in bed with a cup of tea. 
The Top 3 from 1969 was:
3:Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well (Parts 1 &2)↓
2:The Tremeloes - Call Me Number One↓
1: The Archies - Sugar Sugar ↓
Now for some singing along with some big tunes.
Time for breakfast.
I take our two sons out, while hubby waits in for the Tiler to come.
 There was too much traffic around for the time of the morning. I tried to get into a lane, and no one would let me in, so I did to go around another island and head back to the island I needed to go around!
Drops one son off at work.
Then off to Sainsburys we go.
Got some bits and pieces.
Now round to see mum and dad.
One 7 balloon had gone down from last week.
Said goodbye to my parents.
Off to Lidl we go.
Where has all of the crisps gone?
Overlockers in↑
Sewing Threads in as well.
Got our bits and pieces.
Back home.
The Tiler was doing a great job.
Got all of the old tiles off the walls.
Now to put on the new tiles.
We all were sorting out the front garden.
Putting holes in the bottom of the plant pots.
Hubby got all the leaves up and put them in the composters.
I went out to have a chat with Joe's sister.
There was a nice sunset....
I said goodbye to Joe's sister and went back home.
The Tiler has done a great job.
He will be finishing it tomorrow \o/
We might just have enough tiles for the final wall.
We caught up with the final of season 20 of Hell's Kitchen.
Tea time.
Then 4 episodes of Top Of The Pops from 1991.
The fast forward button was well pressed.
At least a good number one was still there to be played.
Magic Bag time!
A good film to watch tomorrow...

Too Bloody Short!

It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously -   Peter Ustinov
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Has brew with hug.
Hubby fetches my newspaper from the shop.
I give him a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
One son has a sloppy one before he leaves for school too.
I tidy up the Living room.
Make sure all the houseplants are still alive.
The remaining ones that gets watered.
One plant had to be given the last rites before it want in to the composter.
At least there is room for some Christmas things that can be finally seen!
I found my Christmas House which lights up.
Now for a much needed coffee!

  I caught up with yesterday's blog.
With a dash of Hell's Kitchen season 9.
My curtain pole arrived.
The man delivering it, wasn't a happy bunny...
(Had a job finding me probably....)
The sooner I put up those red  frilly lacey knickers on the street lamp outside, the better.
One son put the pole up.
Forgot to add the curtain rings to it...
The other son then took it down, added the curtain rings, added the curtain I made to it.
Oh dear, the curtain is too small for the window...
2 inches each side......
That put me a bad mood....
Tea at 3 time...
I was going to fit some lining to more curtains,
But I didn't feel like it!
I put the tea in the oven ready for later...
Hubby comes home and has a nice sloppy wet one!
Dished up the fish tea...
Back to season 9....
The winner was:
Now onto Season 10.
I had my Sleep Tea↓
Hubby went to bed as he kept falling asleep.
I stopped up for one more episode.
Then I went straight to sleep when I went to bed......
