Breaking A New One In!

A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something - Wilson Mizner
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Warm hug with brew.
Kids were having a TE day, so they had a lie-in.
Hubby was working from home today.
I too enjoyed a lie-in.
Hubby bought me up a coffee a little time later.
Up I got afterwards.
Then out in the cold to fetch the newspaper.
One of my kids was up, so came out for some fresh air.
Newspaper got.
Nothing happened at my late dad's house.
Back home.
Quick read of the newspaper before lunch.

He would have been 81 years old🎈
He died aged 51 in 1991.

The new duvet cover arrives \o/
Tea at 3.
Once hubby finishes work.
He and younger son goes off to do the food shopping.
I have yesterday's blog to write and keep an eye on the tonight's tea.
Once they come back.
Tea is served!
Chicken wrapped in bacon.
There was only one episode of Top of the Pops to watch tonight from 1990.
Next we watched  Roy Orbison:Love Hurts.
It was such a lovely documentary 
When he died in the December of 1988 I was working in a Newspaper Shop when it came across the radio he had died :(
Next up:
I still have to look away when that music starts..
Hubby was falling asleep and I was looking more at him than the movie.
Time to break in the new duvet cover 🎈

Pressing That Button To Go Faster Than Lightspeed!

A dress has no meaning unless it makes a man want to take it off 
- Francoise Sagan
Welcome to my Saturday 💂
Off to visit my parents's grave with more flowers!
Warm hug with a brew.
Nice lie in.
Then dressed.
Coffee time 
Then out for a little ride..
When we got to my parents's grave.
My younger brother had dropped off the wooden bench (he bought it in the summer) and made a right mess of the flower display!
The lavender plants I put on the grave last summer has gone. He had put the blue vase behind the gravestone.
I sorted out the flower display!
That looks a lot better↑
I chattered to a man last year before the first lockdown, who was tending his wife's grave. He died in June last year during the first lockdown, and now finally the gravestone has gone to have his name put on it↓↓↓
Said goodbye to my parents.
I will have to get some things for Mother's Day next month!
Back home.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
James Whitmore Jr. was an American film, theatre, and television actor. During his career, he won three of the four EGOT honors: a Tony, a Grammy, and an Emmy. Whitmore also won a Golden Globe and was nominated for two Academy Awards. He died on this day in 2009 aged 87.
Hubby was going to watch the Michael Moore film I was watching yesterday.
I meanwhile had a nice cake to make.
Once the cake had been baked in the oven, it was left to cool.
Tea at 3.
Now to catch up with 2 weeks of 
Top of the Pops from 1990.
(A good tune with Paul Young and Zucchero will be released in 1991, it's at the end of this blog post!)
Next Episode.

I could have got done for speeding,
On how fast I was pressing the
 fast forward button  →→→→
The cake is ready!
So is the steak tea....
Movie time!
Great film.
I think I will leave the sequel alone.
Then it was on to watch the Newspaper review with some Sleep Tea.
Off to get under that warm 16 tog duvet!
