Just Window Shopping!

If you remember the 1960s, you weren't there - George Harrison
Welcome to my fun Saturday 💋
The bed was so comfortable!
Made full use of the shower!
Now to get dressed for breakfast!
Going to be dangerous....
Bacon sandwich time!
Went back to the room to try out the fancy coffee machine, and it was leaking water!
Time to leave, and who did we bump into?
We gets home and a big truck is parked opposite.
The yard opposite is being emptied.
Brought in the overnight bag.
Now to drop off Sexy Beast to have a service an MOT done on Monday.
We were attempting to get to the Co-op and the road was closed.
Morrisons instead.
Funny Private Eye front cover.
Tried to use my i voucher and the red lights went off!
I was glad to get out of there!
It was so busy.
Back home for a much needed coffee.
I had sandwiches instead of liquid lunch.
We wrote out our shopping list.
Now out to do food shopping.
Let's a look in Dunelm...
I didn't get nothing.
Did our food shop in LIDL.
Back home to unload the shopping.
Tea was put in oven.
While that was in the oven.
Heardle time.

Now to look into today's newspaper.

Behind The Back Door!

 I kept a pet goat that followed me like an unpaid bill - Myrtle Reed.
Welcome to my tidy up Tuesday 💁
I came downstairs at 5am,
As it was too warm to sleep upstairs.
Hubby woke me up to join him upstairs for breakfast.
We did the Heardles.
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers were:
Now out for a long ride....
First stop was B&Q↓
Got some bits.
Then off to visit the big Dunelm↓
I have more than enough duvet covers⇊
It was so warm,
Time for a cold drink!
Now to visit the house.
The clock fell off and developed a crack in the top.
Swapped it around with a picture.
See how long it stops up now.
The garden still needs sorting out.
We have done the inside of the house!
Nice photo of hubby's late parents.
We nipped out to get lunch,
As there is no microwave in the kitchen to heat any food up! 
I get some more defusers for the house to make it smell nice.
Hubby got some free boxes to box up some books to give to the Droitwich Lions.
Back to the house.
I tried to make the kitchen look a bit better.
I had the back door open to help dry the kitchen floor as I had mopped it when I heard the neighbours say:
"Dave, they 're in!"
After she noticed the back door open, and two chairs I had left by the back door, moved out of the way!
Found the missing Bank  Statement from 2014.
Blunts Shoes - £34
 £50 & other amounts  being transferred out  every two weeks to people.
He was well into  his overdraft -£152 of £500.
The next time we are sorting more of the house out is the final week of August.
Hopefully it will be  when the house can go on the market.
Waves at the outside camera that is just above next door's living room window.
Off we go back home.
Nice easy tea.
It's still warm.
We sit outside to watch the sun go down.
Didn't get today's newspaper.
But here are the No.1's of previous years.
UK No.1 on this day in 1986:
Chris De Burgh - Lady in Red
 UK No.1 on this day in 2003:

Let's hope we don't have a sweaty Hump 🐫 tomorrow...

Getting The Make Over Done Part One

I've been on more laps than a napkin - Mae West
Welcome to my Saturday 🏮
I was up early to get two lamp shades from Sainsburys...
I listened to "Sounds of the 60s" on the way to Sainsburys..
I got the lamp shades....↓
Back home.
Brew with breakfast.
Day 1 of tidying up my late father-in-law's house.
Drops off son at work.
I get dropped off at Dunelm to get some nice bits for the house.
Once I paid for it all.
Hubby comes and picks me up.
Now to explore the house and garden.
While I was in the garden,
I heard a man shouting out of the window from next door:
"I hope they are going to fucking clean that shit hole up!"
That's nice, perhaps he should come round for a word with me about it,or I go round and see him!
I started to tidy up the small bedroom.
New lamp shade.
New Voile up in the window.
New rugs down.
Next stop was the bathroom.
I put up our spare shower curtain.
I put new bathmats down in the bathroom.
Then I put some houseplants in the kitchen.
I covered the gas cooker.
Next step was to put up the table and chairs in the Dining Room.
Put two pictures that my parents had in their Living Room. 
They are above the mantlepiece↓
We did enough today.
Time to go home for tea!
Sleep Tea.
Straight to bed as we were both so tired.....
