Remembrance Day

All a soldier needs to know is how to shoot and salute 
- General John Pershing
Welcome to my Remembrance Sunday 
Breakfast and Brew.
I gets on the sequins and my red hat.
It's not looking very good for the weather!
On goes the rain mac.
Now to leave the house.
Gets down there early to get a car parking space.
I helped with the cakes going into the Social Club.
Then hubby and I went over to the car park for the parade in the rain.
I was at the front of the parade with 5 other Councillors.
We walked to the war memorial which took about 25 minutes.
At 11am it poured down with rain.
Then  we carried on with the parade.
The High Street was closed off to traffic,
However as we were going up the road, car were coming down. 
We finished back in the car park where we started.
Then we off for a hot drink at the nearby Social Club.
Got talking to a lot of people.
Had some nice food.
The coat came off to reveal the sequins.
After the raffle we left to go home.
I must have a caught a chill as I had a lemsip and a sleep to shake it off.
Hubby done the tea.
Then to watch...
We watched 2 of the 3 episodes.
Sleep Tea Time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel  🎑 tomorrow

 Welcome to my Remembrance Sunday🌹
Hug with brew.
Now out to get some fresh air!
Checks Sexy Beast's tyre pressures.
Back before the 2 minute silence.
Watches the full service until 12.30pm.
Then it's time for a little bike ride...
Watches a bit of Ronin while cycling.
Felt better after that!
Time for lunch!
Then it's time to put another layer to the Living Room curtains.
One done.
Second one done.
Hubby hung them back up.
Then I got on with making tonight's tea.
Once it was put in the oven.
I went off to have a hot shower.
Then it was time to dish up the grub!
A bit of music is needed from the 1960s
While everyone was else having showers, I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
Once that was done.
We caught up with episode 3 of series one of "Fame."
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Freddie Garrity was an English singer and actor who was the frontman and comical element in the 1960s' beat band Freddie and the Dreamers.
He would have been 85 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 69 in 2006.
Sleep Tea Time...

Early Birthday Treat!

Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker 
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew.
I gave hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
I meanwhile made full use of that king size bed and went back to sleep!
Later on I got up, dressed and went out in Sexy Beast to fetch the newspaper and next door's magazine.
Back for coffee!
Then I wrote yesterday's blog all the way to dinnertime....
Then to some a little bit of housework.
Tea at 3. 
Before putting the tea in the oven. 
Once hubby came home, he had a nice wet slopply wet 😘.
We had a nice tea involving fish and wedges.
Now to give my dad a early Birthday Surprise.
Rainbow greeted us as we were leaving..
Balloon time 🎈
I added more flowers to his grave.
Then went to collect a lucky bag from Morrisons.
Back home to see what was in the bag.
Now to look in today's newspaper.
