Finally Got It Emptied!

 You can stop almost anything from functioning by hitting it with a large rock - Russell Bell

 Welcome to my Sunday 📦📦
It was nice to have a warm hug to start Sunday with.
Breakfast with a brew.
Opened the curtains.....
Hubby and one son went to have their hair cuts.
While I did various jobs around the house.
The coffee machine was put on, just in time for hubby to come back!
Back to sorting out of the loft.
One big pile for the tip in the back garden.
The big pile for the storage unit.
First trip was to the storage unit...
When hubby came back, we loaded up the car for a tip run.
Lunch when he came back with an empty car!
Then we took time out to collect a magic bag and some free food from Olio.
Checked the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
We had the red light fun in Morrisons...
Picked up the Magic Bag on the way out.
Then off to see mum and dad.
Back home in the rain.
Free from Olio.
Some of the things from today's Magic Bag, are going to my Father-in-law tomorrow.
Back to finishing off the loft.
One final trip to the storage unit...
Then a final trip to the tip.
The carpets in the loft will be took down on Tuesday.
The washing machine has been busy today.
I was hoping to do some sewing with my sewing machine this week...
Gets out the sewing machine and the power lead is no where to been seen!!!
Had to order another one off Amazon....]
Good job it wasn't the foot pedal!
Tea is served.
While I was catching up with the blog.
I was watching from afar the second episode of the 20th series of Hell's Kitchen.
Then 9 weeks of Top of The Pops.
One song which they played, I enjoyed and sung along with it....
Bryan Adams was still number 1 with a great song....
He had another entry with a new great song as well...
Sleep Tea time!
Quick look in the newspaper before bed.
Eddie Cochran  was an American rock and roll musician. Cochran's songs, such as "Twenty Flight Rock", "Summertime Blues", "C'mon Everybody", and "Somethin' Else", captured teenage frustration and desire in the mid-1950s and early 1960s. He experimented with multitrack recording, distortion techniques, and overdubbing even on his earliest singles. He played the guitar, piano, bass, and drums. His image as a sharply dressed and attractive young man with a rebellious attitude epitomized the stance of the 1950s rocker, and in death he achieved iconic status.
He would have been 83 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 21 in 1960.
Chubby Checker (born Ernest Evans) is an American rock and roll singer and dancer. He is widely known for popularizing many dance styles, including The Twist dance style, with his 1960 hit cover of Hank Ballard & The Midnighters' R&B song "The Twist", and the Pony dance style with the 1961 cover of the song "Pony Time". However, his best-known song is the hit "Let's Twist Again", released in the same year; he also popularized in 1962 the song "Limbo Rock", originally a previous year instrumental hit by the Champs to whom he added lyrics, and its trademark Limbo dance, as well as others dance styles such as The Fly. In September 2008, "The Twist" topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1960, an honor it maintained for an August 2013 update of the list.
He is 80 years old 🎈 
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow 🍭

Amazing Who You Meet At The.....

 I'm on a whisky diet. I've lost three days already - Tommy Cooper
Welcome to my Sunday 💗
Brew with hug.
Our son had his Birthday request read out on the local radio. He also had a Beatles record played for him as well...
Now to check the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then off to say hello to my parents...
While we were sat down on the bench, my brother paid for:
Someone parked behind Sexy Beast and went over to put flowers on the grave, of the man I chatted to last March before the first Lockdown.
When he came away, I told him I chatted to his dad before the first lockdown, a good 45 minute chat we had, and then next time I came up here, he had passed away.
His son said, it was the first year anniversary of his dad passing away.
(He got a bit upset)
If he wondered who had put flowers on his dad's grave last year, it was me. 
He thanked me for that.
I said I would water the plants if they are dry at the weekends I come up.
He thanked me for doing that.
Then off to Co-op to get some bargains.
A couple had two baskets of reduced food.
We didn't need that much.
We only got a bit.
Time for coffee!
Back home for lunch.
I read today's newspaper.
Then to write yesterday's blog post.
After that, I put tonight's tea in oven for later.
Then we caught up with last week's Dragon's Den.
Tea is served!
I got my stuff ready for tomorrow's 
"Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡"
A early night is called for......
