When The World Gives You Lemons...

I've been on more laps than a napkin - Mae West
Bank Holiday Monday
Welcome to my Monday πŸ₯
 Hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I wanted to get the newspaper before it gets really busy with people.
Where has the sun gone?
Out in Sexy Beast we go..
It's now starting to snow ⛄
It's really cold....brrrrrr
Says hello to everyone in the shop when I get my newspaper.
Goes past my dad's, still looking like a public car park...
Back home.
The lawn looks nice :)
The blossom is coming out now on the tree.
Quick coffee before starting on the Easter Cake.
Hubby goes on to put the boarder on the wall in the toilet room.
I have a date with lemons...
I had a little play with Kenny as well.
The sponges were put in the oven to bake.
Hubby had finished putting the boarder up.
Once the cake had cooled down from being in the oven.
Time for some decoration!
Now for a special Afternoon Tea.
(at home)
That was so nice and yummy.
Dishwasher emptied and loaded up.
Plus the washing machine went on 3 times!
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
Once that was done and published.
Tea at 3. 
I went off to have a nice hot shower!
The curtain rings on the curtain rail above the front door wasn't holding the curtain.....
Nearly 12 years that has been there...
Time for a longer curtain rail that covers the little window and front door!
I ordered one and picking it up tomorrow.
Next on the to do list.
1)Get a new bed for the son that sleeps in the box room. 
2) Another mattress for the other son. 
As we are not going away on holiday at Whitsun.
Sheds and loft is going to be sorted out too. 
We weren't very hungry come teatime.
We had crumpets with grated cheese...
Then we caught up with today's episode of

Enjoying The Sunshine At Home!
