Talk, Talk, & More Talk!

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do - Martha Grimes.
 Welcome to my Thursday ๐Ÿ„
I had a bit of lie-in this morning.
I gave hubby a quick hug and sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he left to go to work.
I ate my breakfast and enjoyed my first brew of the day.
Today is the 7th anniversary of writing this blog!
Thank you for reading it!
An engineer is coming today to look at why our internet speed is not fast enough.
Now to move to Sewing table out of the way, so he can look at the phone line starts.....
More Gnomes for the garden arrives.
In to the garden they go↓
Now to go and fetch the newspaper.
Has a chat with the woman in the shop.
Then back home I go.
I was looking around for some reasonably priced tickets for Barry Manilow's concert next June in Birmingham....
I found some right near the stage....
Woo Hoo!
I was in the middle of writing yesterday's blog post, when the Engineer arrived.
(Good job I did move the sewing table out of the way in the end)
We got chatting while he was checking the line.
(I bet he was thinking I don't get out much....)
I was telling about the series about 9/11 we are watching.
He escaped up the road to check the box.
When he came back,
I asked "If he ear hurts?"
He laughed, more chin wagging, he kept looking at his watch. He finally tore himself away at 2pm, to get to the next job.
We moved the router about 5 times to see if the speed could get higher. 
Where it was in the first place was the highest speed. 
Late lunch.
Then I chopped up some onions, mushrooms, and garlic.
Fried them up, with the sausages and added vegetables to the red casserole dish.
In the oven it went on...
Tea at 3.
Finished writing the blog post.
Oven got turned on.
Watered all the plants outside.
Hubby came home and received a sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹
Casserole was dished up.
Afterwards I had a quick look in the newspaper.
Now to carry on watching about 9/11.
Sleep Tea.
5th episode.
The final episode is on tomorrow.
It's getting quite cold at night...
Topper goes over the duvet now!
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow ๐ŸŽˆ

Some of the people who work with her, have been showing a lots of envy and jealousy towards her new job.
We had a good chat for over a hour!
I felt better for the chat, I hope she felt the same.
On to see another friend around the corner.
I brought my own blue milk, as I can't drink green milk anymore.
Stayed there for over an hour and half...
Jaw was starting to hurt!
Back home

Pushing It Out!

When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them - Rodney Dangerfield
Welcome to my Tuesday๐Ÿฟ
Phone call to the doctors later...
I woke up early with a migrane.
Downstairs for pain killers and a sleep on the sofa↓
  I was woken up later on for brew and breakfast.
Back upstairs I go↓
 Brew and hug.

Out for the daily walk↓
 Back in record time↓
 Quick read of the newspaper with coffee↓
 Phones up the Doctors.
Going to see the female Doctor later...
Writes up yesterday's blog.
Jumps into the shower...
Now off to see the Doctor↓
 Up the hill I go.
I sit in the waiting room with my face mask on.
The female doctor has full PPE on.
Had to slip off the underwear and lie on the couch.
The car jack came out.
First up was the smear.
Then my muscles pushed out the car jack to the surprise of the Doctor.
"What strong muscles you have!" She said.
She had to put the car jack back in to take more swabs.
When she finished, I got up and put my underwear back on.
I asked the Doctor:
"Will I have to have the pram took away?"
After a few minutes she grasped what I was talking about.
"No, that is the last resort," she replied.
Blood test next month to see if there is anything more going on....
If the Hunt for Red October gets any worst, I have to see the Doctor again.
Now back down the hill↓
 Back home.
I go round to give my neighbour some mail that was delivered to us by mistake.
He asked me if I liked coffee???
"Of course!"
He then gives me↓
 I say thank you very much!
Another friend pops round to see me.
He bought me a magazine to thank me for giving him some flour during Lockdown.
 We have a good yak in the garden. 
I knock some apples off the tree, and he takes them home with him.
The Birthday Girl comes over with some cake for the kids.
Hubby and I only had a bit...
 I said thank you to my friend for coming over.
Then onto to make more apple pies...↓
 I put the big one to bake in our oven.
I took round the other two to my neighbour.
Nice easy tea for tonight↓
 My friend had left her purse on our sofa while she was here earlier. Phoned her up to say she had left her gold bullion here.
She came and collected it.
 Off to work I go afterwards↓
 With some big tunes↓
 It was still daylight when I got home↓
 Pie done↓
 Carrying on with the NYPD boxset↓

 A busy day tomorrow.
