Goodbye To August!

My wife was looking through a fashion magazine, and she saw a fur coat. She said, "I want that." So I cut it out and gave it to her - Tommy Cooper
Welcome to my Tuesday 🌼🌼🐧
It was nice to have a warm hug.
Breakfast with brew.
I gave hubby a nice sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
Last day of August!
That went quick!
It's my youngest brother's 37th Birthday tomorrow.......
Not long before I go back to work....
Now to get some gardening done...
My postman gave me my parcel I should have had on Saturday.
His excuse was the trackers came in AFTER he went out, he looked at it when he came back in, and thought she can wait for it until Tuesday.
Funny when I worked for Royal Mail, you had to wait for the trackers to come in..
(Must have changed the rules since I left)
Back to sorting out the gardening.
My Trellises arrived.
I put them in the garden.
At least the flowers can grow up them.
Watered all the plants.
Sorted out the bit of garden for the time being.
More to be added soon...
The garden looking well nice!
Now to get on with writing 3 blog posts!
I had time for Tea at 3.
The Delivery Driver from earlier,
And gave a bit of my trellis that came off in his lorry.
That was nice of him! 
As hubby was visiting his dad again.
Time for Meat free Stir Fry.
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Larry Grayson , (born William Sulley White), was an English comedian and television presenter who was best known in the 1970s and early 1980s. He is best remembered for hosting the BBC's popular series The Generation Game and for his high camp and English music hall humour.
His camp stand-up act consisted mainly of anecdotes about a cast of imaginary friends; the most frequently mentioned were Everard, Apricot Lil and Slack Alice. He is often cited as one of the first gay entertainers to have enjoyed mass appeal, although he never made any reference to his sexuality. He was devoted to his home town of Nuneaton, where a museum display relating to his life and work and a memorial have been established. 
He would have been 98 years old 🎈
He died aged 71 in 1995.
Michael Sheard  was a Scottish character actor who featured in many films and television programmes, and was known for playing villains. His most prominent television role was as strict deputy headmaster Maurice Bronson in the children's series Grange Hill, which he played between 1985 and 1989. He appeared as Admiral Ozzel in The Empire Strikes Back (1980). 
He died on this day in 2005 aged 67
I watched the first episode of a new series on 9/11.
Hubby came back to watch it as well.
Sleep Tea time.
Hoping for a Dry Hump tomorrow 🐫

Emptying The Skip!

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city - George Burns
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’£
Nice hug with brew!
I got the kids up for school.
It's going to be another warm one!
Gave out some sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ to everyone.

 Big big sunglasses time.
Summer coat goes on.
Tree shot.
Now for the fun to start..
It was starting to get really warm.
Getting hot under the collar.
It's a lot better than yesterday for car drivers stopping.
Still no lambo :(
Finished in one piece.
Now home for coffee in the garden!
My friend got in touch to go around her house to see the state of her house after she had a fire in garage last year.
Where the fire started↑
This is where her daughter's cot was, 
Her room is above the garage.
This is the ceiling↑
She can't move back in until all the repairs have been made.She is looking at it being November.
Says Goodbye and goes home for lunch.
Then back out for the afternoon session.
On goes the Summer coat again.
I'm glad I took a bottle of water, it was getting really hot. Just three car drivers failed to stop.
There will be a time when stick hits windscreen.
Getting hot under the collar again! 
Finishes in one piece.
Gets home, and ex-plum is waiting to take his kids out to McDonalds. Has as quick chat, then off they go.
I have to get ready for my final shift at the cleaning job.
Off I go.
More big tunes to listen to:
Gets in.
Loads up the skip for the final time.
Didn't see no other cleaners.
After I finished.
I emptied the skip, just leaving black bags, feather duster and a new toilet brush in it with the vacuum cleaner.
Now to sing to my heart's content on the way home.
Back home.
I had a lovely tea.
Then to enjoy a nice long cold bath! 
I was too tired for Sleep Tea.
I am glad this is the last day of that cleaning job.
Let's see what Hump Day tomorrow brings..🐫

Return To Sender

Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use - Wendell Johnson
Welcome to my Monday...
Let's hop onto the tiny Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
 Brew and hug↑↑↑
Off for the daily walk↓
The garden looks nice↓
 Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he left to go to his office.
I had my chores to get on with...
Fed birds and changed their water.
Put on Dishwasher.
Tidied up the kitchen and living room.
Even had a quick play with Henry↓
 Then quick look in the newspaper↓
Carlos Santana is a Mexican and American guitarist who rose to fame in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and roll and Latin American jazz. Its sound featured his melodic, blues-based lines set against Latin and African rhythms played on percussion instruments not generally heard in rock, such as timbales and congas. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. In 2015, Rolling Stone magazine listed him at No. 20 on their list of the 100 greatest guitarists. He has received 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, and was inducted along with his namesake band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.He is 73 years old 🎈
 Then my friend arrived for coffee,chat and cake!
The Seller of the Monster got my letter I posted on Saturday.
This is her response to it:
 "I have today received your threatening, incorrect letter. i maintain the sewing machine was in perfect working order when I sold it. However, in order to stop you harrassing me, there are two options. As an act of good faith I will pay for a new pedal. It must have the correct fitting which you must confirm if you look at this link: Or, If you prefer to return the sewing to me I will return your money, less the cost of the foot pedal (which is not £220, as you stated)."
My response to that was:
 "The link you sent me, will not fit the sewing machine. I have looked over the World Wide Web including Ebay. The pedal is a p500. Two are in the USA. The only one avaliable in the UK is the link I am providing.  regards"
She came back with: 
 "Well, i have found one for £36.50. But, in any case, I think it best at this stage if you just return the sewing machine to me. I will put cash in a bag, outside, for you to check before you return the machine. Please don't forget the extra items inc. the Tupperware Box and items."
I like to see this foot pedal for £36.50, as I have been into the bowels of the World Wide Web and I only found 3 that will fit the Monster.
So it goes back to Sender tomorrow.
I even took a video of it not working...
Then I boxed it all away for tomorrow↓
 Tea at 3 time↓
 I have designed a cake for the upcoming cake competition next month↓↓
Gave hubby a wet πŸ’‹ when he came back from work.
Nice Chicken Stir Fry for tea↓
 Off to work I go↓
 With a big tune to start with↓
 Gets back in the sunshine↓
 More of:
With some sleep tea↓
 Roll on to tomorrow....
Waving Goodbye to the Monster....
