Clearing The Room!

Every time I paint a portrait, I lose a friend - John Singer Sargent
Welcome to my Monday 🎈
(No Wobbly Work Wheel this week 🎡) 
Nice warm hug with brew.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before he goes to work.
Now to make full use of nice comfy bed 🛏
I am going to have a rare lie-in.
Felt better after that!
Gets up, gets dressed.
Puts on the coffee machine.
Loads up and puts on the dish washer.
On goes the new washing machine.
Empties all the bins in the house.
Now for coffee...
One son gets the newspaper for me.
My new curtains arrive for the Dining room.
One son helps me put them up.
Tumble Drier goes on.
Nice healthy lunch.
Now for the follow up for the parcel which was supposed to be delivered to me on 14th October but was delivered elsewhere.
Fed-Ex has picked up the parcel and delivered to the correct address! 
I was told.
"Not here, I replied back"
This Business is trying not to give me refund, not answered my emails and just hoping I will go away, however they don't know me well enough!
I need to chill.
What better way to do some sewing with a brew.
Tea at 3 time.
The first 3 draught excluders done.
Then the remaining three done \o/
Hopefully our house won't be so draughty now!
Hubby was visiting his dad with all the shopping he got yesterday and playing snooker afterwards.
While our kids had their tea, a nice tune came on the music channel we were watching.
Then I flicked it over and started singing along with Def...
The room cleared!
That's nice!
I got on with my tea.
Then I caught up with Kenny Everett's series 3.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby won his snooker singles match but lost in the doubles.
His team still won 3-2.
Published my blog post.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
Roger  Miller   was an American singer-songwriter, musician, and actor, widely known for his honky-tonk-influenced novelty songs and his chart-topping country and pop hits "King of the Road", "Dang Me", and "England Swings", all from the mid-1960s Nashville sound era. 
He sadly died on this day in 1992 aged 56. 
Now to snuggle down into that warm bed with hubby 😘

Fancy A Bit Of Pussy?

Man is a clever animal who behaves like an imbecile - Albert Schweitzer
Welcome to my Hump of the week 🐫
It was back to work for hubby.
The dust was removed from the alarm clock..
It was a early tea in bed this morning!
  I even waved him off....
It was so cold...
 We had a hard frost last night....
More house tidying up to do...
Much needed coffee afterwards..
 Once my kids had surfaced, and had breakfast.
Time to add bobble hat and scrape the windscreen....

 No wonder it is was cold....↓
 Plenty of singing along to the CD...
 Down to Morrisons again..
 I got some nice orange and blue Pussy Willow.
Afterwards dropped in to see my Dad.
He refused to come downstairs,
So I had my coffee downstairs.
 Back home,
The temperatures had gone up to 3c.
 More bobble hats arrived for me↓
 The lovely Pussy Willow↑↑↑
While I was reading the newspaper.
I came across the Life in Brief section.
Honey Lantree, the drummer with The Honeycombs in the 60's has passed away on December 23rd 2018 aged 75. :( 
Ray Sawyer : Singer with Dr. Hook passed away on New Year's Eve aged 81.
Dean Ford:Singer with the band, Marmalade passed away aged 72.
 On a brighter note:
Roger Miller:Country Singer( (King of the Road, Dang Me),would have been 83 years old.
(He died aged 56 in 1992) 
 55 MPH speed limit imposed by Richard Nixon in 1974.
Now to have a quick play with Kenny.
 Popped the Fruit Cake into the oven
before I went to work...↓
 After 5 hours in the oven, it's ready!
 Now to use some whippy cream on my piece of cake!
