Still Missing My Mum!

I was the only director who ever made two pictures with Marilyn Monroe.Forget the Oscar, I deserve the Purple Heart - Billy Wilder
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’“
It's the 9th Anniversary of my late mum passing away :'(
We will be going up later to give her some flowers.
But first hug,
Brew with breakfast.
Where has the sun gone?
It's seems younger brother has been up again.
All the flowers were put back on the grave.
At least he didn't grave rob like he did on Mother's Day.
Nothing off the other Prodical brother! 
I hope younger brother has got £850 in 8 years time to pay for the plaque on the bench, or they will him the plaque back to him!
We noticed 3 new neighbours have been added around my parents's grave.
One poor wooden cross had fallen apart and had no flowers, nothing.
I put the cross back together.
Someone had thrown a lot of stuff in the bin for a grave.
Recycled it and put it on Sandra's grave instead.
Said goodbye to my mum and dad and headed home.
Younger son put my vegetable rack together!
While I caught up with blog posts.
Hubby did the mowing....
We had a sandwich for lunch.
As I was catching up with the blog.
He went over to his dad's house to add more things he bought for it.
I was doing the tea while he was out.
When he came back, he had a sloppy wet one.
Looked in today's newspaper.

I'm Not Backing Out!

Welcome to my Saturday Fun 🎈
It is the 8th anniversary of my mum passing away.
If it stops raining later, I might be able to drop in the balloons and lavender plants I bought last week.
Nice hug with a brew.
Gets kids up.
Loaded up the new case into Sexy Beast's boot. 
The rain is in for the day by the looks of it.
Drops off son at his place of work.
The other son and me goes and sees Joe and Tracy. 
I try and sort out Tracy's sewing machine out.
I get out my sewing machine.
The coffee is flowing.
I bought a nice wall hanging and some coloured candles.
My youngest son bought a lucky bag.
Packed up sewing machine.
Thanked Joe and Tracy.
Back home to hang up the nice wall hanging.
My son had some nice things in his lucky bag.
My other part of my Aldi order had been delivered.\o/
I got out my felt book to see how much felt I needed for the felt wreath I made.
I used up more than 11 sheets of felt for mine!
It was still raining when we left do some more food shopping.
We picked up son from his work place.
We were trying to get out of the car park,
One car driver was coming in.
We couldn't back up as a car was behind us, and two other cars were waiting to get out as well.
 She got out of her car and said to us:
"I'm not reversing on to the main road!".
I rolled my eyes.
We couldn't reverse, and we just sat there.
She reversed a bit and then we could get out of the car park and go.
She had a silver van behind her trying to get into the car park as well.
We dropped one son off at home. 
First stop was Morrison's. Our son had to finish off neighbour's food shopping from Friday.
Nice drive out to Stratford's Waitrose.
Got the free Waitrose magazine and newspaper.
Got some bits for my son's cooking lesson for Monday.
Moving onto Stratford's Lidl.
Got more bits in there..
(Stocked up the garlic in the jar!)
Now for a nice drive back home in the rain.
Unloads the shopping.
I starts sorting out the dirty washing when my phone goes...
I won the £100 gift voucher to spend in Joe's shop.
*The nice wall hanging I bought was the item needed to buy to win the £100 gift voucher!*
I put the mixed colour pasta in the saucepan.
I fried up some mushrooms, spinach, and garlic.
Washing machine had been put on 3 times.
The tumble drier has now been up on.
Need to catch up with the Blog.
Thursday and Friday's blog posts are starting to get wrote.
Now to catch up with some things....
First was Ocean's 12
I had a break from blogging to have our tea.
Back to the film and blogging....
After Ocean's 12.
John Fred Gourrier , known by his stage name John Fred, was an American blue-eyed soul, swamp pop, rock and roll, and R&B performer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, best known for the 1967 hit song "Judy in Disguise (With Glasses)".
He would have been 80 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 63 in 2005
No setting off the alarm tomorrow...
Let's hope the sun will be out to put the balloons and flowers on my mum's grave tomorrow!
