I didn't leave with a red shiny face for a change ;) 
More singing-a-long on the way home↓
 Back home...
 Lunch time↓
 Some nice things that arrived in the post↑
Time to carrying on binge watching of:
 My younger brother comes finally around for me to sign some paperwork for my late dad's Solicitor.
He was trying to stick up for our late's dad's golddigging girlfriend.
He failed...
Here is a list of things I reminded him of things she did:
  1. Talked my dad into putting down his dog.
  2. Tried to get my dad to put down a perfect healthy cat, we rehomed her in the end.
  3. Didn't want my dad staying at hers, due to his frame marking her white carpet when he came out of hospital.
  4. Went to my younger brother's wedding.
  5. Didn't turn up at my dad's sister's funeral.
  6. As soon as out of dad's hearing range, slagged off him and us etc
  7. Wearing a "Poor Me" badge at every opportunity. 
  8. Returned my birthday present I bought her.
  9. Moaning her diamonds earrings for her Birthday my dad had bought her, was late arriving...
  10. Lots more.....
I had to look hard for a small box. I opened it and started to play it for my brother↓
He soon left after I put it away.

Afterwards, I went off to work↓
 Back to catch up on the news...
With some sleep tea↓
 We are celebrating our 9th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow..
A nice stay in a nice hotel perhaps?↓

I don't know why I bothered celebrating Valentine's Day ๐Ÿ’—
 I took it all off half way through lunchtime.
I am feeling the magic has gone from here
I feel like I am walking through darkness & having no fun :(
I couldn't wait to leave...
I need a good song to sing!
 Back home..
 I was just about to get changed,
When I had a shocking email from my boss at The Happy Place Of Work....
I was so annoyed, I sent it one back.
Back out to do final lollipop job๐Ÿญ
It was very cloudy.
There was rain forecasted.
Lots of bedlam and chaos happened.
Once I finished in one piece.
I enjoyed a much needed coffee↓

Off to Happy Place Of Work in a foul mood.

So So Tempting

We had a bit of a lie-in ๐Ÿ›
Phoned the council up about getting the waste pipe sorted.
Their Plumber said it wasn't classed as a emergency ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
"Wash the clothes in the washing up bowl."
Nice advice!
So no use of washing machine or kitchen taps to be used until Monday.
Now to get the mobile phone sorted.๐Ÿ“ฑ
Had so many chances of taking photos...๐Ÿ“ต
But no camera at hand ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ˜’
I was offered a new mobile....
The temptation was there....↓↓
I had a budget to stick to.....๐Ÿ’ฐ
While hubby was sorting out our Broadband.
I had a little play with their Apple music...↓
 Everyone had to listen to a nice offering from Taylor...↓
 Now to hit some 1960's tunes..↓

I was so so tempted to put my current fav 1960s song on......↓↓
And leave it on repeat...๐Ÿ˜‰
After we had left the Mobile Phone Shop.
Time for a pick me up...
 Gets back home.
Added all my apps back onto the new phone.
Even had to add this great song ↓↓ as the ringtone.
(The looks  ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€   I get when my phone rings in public!)
