Out In The Fresh Air!

I was once so poor I didn't know where my next husband was coming from - Mae West
Welcome to my hectic Sunday 💫
No chance of a lie-in, so much to do.
Breakfast with Brew.
On goes the thermal vest.
My older son decides to take part in the Couch to 5k.
He was dragging his heels for a lift.
Our Robin says hello, while we wait...
Off we go.
Drops son off.
Now to say hello to my parents.
Then off to check the tyres.
Off to ScrewFix...
Back home.
Coffee time.
Then we start tidying up the Dining Room and sorting out my 1950's cabinet.
My older son painted his room with Anti-Mould paint. However he had moved all his stuff into his brother's room and was in no hurry to move it back in! 
The Cabin has to be taken down.
He doesn't open his windows...
I can't get to his windows to open them as he doesn't put his things away in the Cabin Bed!
The lovely curtains I made for him, he threw away as well as the net curtains I put up!
I had to rescue the plant he also threw away.
The Mould now had taken hold of his Cabin Bed.
So after spending £275 it will have to go :( :(
Both sons having a go at each other, then the older one having a go at me!
Time for some liquid refreshment!
Still arguing at each other, hubby and I go and fetch a Magic bag from Morrisons.
Then to do a bit of shopping at Lidl.
Already got a microwave.
Gets back home to unload the shopping.
My older son is still dragging his heels on getting his room sorted. Now he is refusing to sleep in his room!
Better get the tent out and sleep outside in the front garden!
In the end he goes and sleeps over at our friend's house.
His rooms stops the same!
Shopping put away.
Then the tea is made!
Nice Pork Tea!
Quick look into today's newspaper.

When I Walk In The Room, I Just Have To ....

 If at first you don't succeed, cheat. - Red Buttons
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Warm hug with Brew.
Thermal vest goes on.....
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
I had to park elsewhere as the hall was closed.
It was quite warm, so no need for gloves!
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get ready to roll...🍭
Cars and vans failing to stop!
Some have to do emergancy stops!
Some parents are still chancing it by crossing into moving traffic instead of using me!
At least I survived in one piece!
Nips into Co-op to get some bits....
Saves £6.05 on my shopping bill :)
Next onto Screwfix.
Henry the Hoover!
While in the queue, I here a great song playing, So I start singing along, the man looks around at me....
He must want to join in I thought!
I collects my order.
The £5 off my order helped!
Next to pick up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
While I was waiting, a great song came on, and I started to sing-along...
The two men in front started to look around to see where the singing was coming from.
They looked at me, and I kept on singing along!
"Your happy!" I was told when I paid for my things.
"I am now after doing some singing!" I replied.
Just before I left, I joined in with Belinda Carlisle
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Empties the tumble drier.
Loads up the dish washer and puts it on.
Sorts out the food in the fridge.
Recycling get put in the green bin.
(Our 3 recycling bins are being emptied tomorrow) 
Now for some coffee.
I though writing yesterday's blog post would only take an hour, it took longer!
Right up to lunch, and I still hadn't published it!
Light lunch.
Now for part two....
I was singing along with a great song on the way to work.
Such a Big Tune, it was repeated four times it was good...
The song?
At the end of this blog post...
It was warm enough to wear gloves!
Turned on my lights.
Got chatting to my two friends.
Just before I was due to start, I notice a Argos and Amazon van parking on the double yellow lines over the road where I was due to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Afternoon shift.
Still having problems with car drivers not stopping.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Time for a much needed brew!
I finished and published yesterday's blog post.
Now to get on with tonight's tea.
Opened a cupboard door, my oval dish fell out and broke into 3 bits!
It didn't help cutting open my finger while picking up one piece of it, blood everywhere!
Once it stopped, put a plaster on it, now to carry on with the tea.
It was ready before Hubby came home.
When he did come back from work, he had to warm his up in the microwave!
Four plates were empty!
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Jack Palance  was an American actor. Known for playing tough guys and villains, he was nominated for three Academy Awards, all for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, receiving nominations for his roles in Sudden Fear (1952) and Shane (1953), and winning the Oscar almost 40 years later for his role in City Slickers (1991).
He died on this day in 2006 aged 87. 
It's my late mum's 77th Birthday this Saturday.
I have ordered some balloons 🎈 for her birthday.
My good friend who passed away last May would have been 87 on Sunday.
I made him a Birthday Cake for his 78th Birthday.↓
I should a new CD arrive on Friday...↓
Plenty of singing along with this one!
We caught up with two episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991.
Oh dear, the fast forward button was used a lot.
Great number one in the second episode.
Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff.
Great cover version of the Tommy Roe number 1 hit from 1969↓↓↓
Out of all hits  Tommy Roe had.
I prefer this one↓
Now to move onto the one hit wonders of the 70s...
Sleep Tea Time.
Hopefully will be playing with the new brother tomorrow...
