Who Is Getting Home First?

 The only way of catching a train I ever discovered is to miss the train before - G.K Chesterton.
Welcome to my Sunday 💜
Had a much needed cup of tea...
We done all the Heardles.
Yesterday Heardle 60s was:
Today's Heardle 60s was:
Went down for a lovely breakfast.
Quick walk to the seafront for the last time.
One last look out of the bedroom window.
However we hit a small problem with loading up the car. So much stuff, no room for kids!
One son said:
"Maybe you should buying so much from the Charity Shops mum!"
I replied,"Who bought the six foot teddy bear?"
Looked at the train timetable.
Train leaving for home at 11.30, four stops and they arrive home about 3.30pm.
Bought the train tickets and off they went to catch the train.
Let's see who gets home first...
So reminds me of a certain advert...↓
I thanked Simon and Rhona for a wonderful time.
Off we go.
Some decent music to sing along with:
First stop at the motorway service.
At the next motorway services...
It was turn to drive....
It was raining, and ok the car was the same make as Sexy Beast, but I just had my wits about me, and put another 60s CD to calm my nerves....
Off we went in the rain...
Bloody roadworks, crawling at 5 m.p.h and having people overtake me to get in front and then they can't go anywhere!!!
I'm glad I don't drive on motorways very often!
Finally gets home!!!
Unpacks car....
Time to give Sexy Beast a ride out to check it's tyre pressures.
Then to pick up a perscription for hubby, as he had got a chest infection.
Back home to put the washing machine back on.
Salad for tea.
We watched "Every Which Way You Can"
Sleep tea time
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow 🎡

Better Start Digging The Car Out!

Three things have helped me through the ordeals of life: an understanding husband, a good analyst, and a million of dollars - Mary Tyler Moore.
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
I had enough sleep by 7.30am.
I went downstairs to make a brew while Sleep Beauty was snoring.
Opened the bedroom curtains when I got back upstairs. 
Had a warm cuddle.
He got up the make the breakfast.
Breakfast had.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to go outside in the cold temperatures.
Checked the tyres pressures on Sexy Beast.
Drops back Sexy Beast, and we do the same to hubby's car. 
Then we went on to see my mum and dad.
I got chattering with Mrs Messenger whose late husband was a good friend of my dads, and I worked with at Royal Mail.
It was getting too cold.
I said goodbye and we got back home.
The heating went back on, as it was freezing!
Early lunch
Washing machine was put back on.
Then I had to write 2 blog posts.
The Tiler came to finish the bathroom.
Made him a cup of tea.
Hubby went on the spin bike and the ab trainer.
He had a lovely red glow after that.
The Amazon Echo I bought on Black Friday has failed to arrive, refund job tomorrow.
Now to get ready to make two Advent Calenders for tomorrow.
The Tiler had finished my bathroom.
I thanked him so much.
It's got the WOW Factor!
New Shower Curtain.
Now to put all the stuff back in the bathroom.
Toileties, bath mat, and bathroom mats.
I will turn the things we got in the bathroom around tomorrow.
Next job to do, it to paint the walls blue.....
Sorted out all the dried washing.
Hubby forgot to keep eye on the chicken in the oven....
At least it was overcooked not undercooked!
It's a good job I covered up Sexy Beast, as it now had finished snowing and the temperatures are dropping!
Great for tomorrow!
Quick look into the newspaper...
Bruce Channel is an American singer-songwriter best known for his 1962 million-selling number-one hit record, "Hey! Baby". 
He is 81 years old 🎈
Leslie Nielsen OC  was a Canadian actor and comedian. With a career spanning 60 years, he appeared in more than 100 films and 150 television programs, portraying more than 220 characters.
Nielsen was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. After high school, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943 and served until the end of World War II. Upon his discharge, Nielsen worked as a disc jockey before receiving a scholarship to study theatre at the Neighborhood Playhouse. He made his acting debut in 1950, appearing in 46 live television programs a year. Nielsen made his film debut in 1956, with supporting roles in several dramas and western and romance films produced between the 1950s and the 1970s.
Although his notable performances in the films Forbidden Planet and The Poseidon Adventure gave him standing as a serious actor, Nielsen later gained enduring recognition for his deadpan comedy roles during the 1980s, after being cast for the Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker comedy film Airplane!. In his comedy roles, Nielsen specialized in portraying characters oblivious to and complicit in their absurd surroundings. Nielsen's performance in Airplane! marked his turning point, which made him "the Olivier of spoofs" according to film critic Roger Ebert, and leading to further success in the genre with The Naked Gun film series, based on the earlier short-lived television series Police Squad!, in which Nielsen also starred. Nielsen received a variety of awards and was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 
He died on this day in 2010 aged 84 
Sleep Tea Time
