Finally Sorting It Out!

Nothing is so simple it cannot be misunderstood - Albert Einstein
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Heardle Time.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Time for breakfast with brew.
 8 years ago, I started this blog.
Thank you all for reading it :)
 Out for a little ride....
Drops off son at his final day at work.
Next, to pick up a coffee...
Then to pick up some plastic boxes from Dunelm.
We had to share the lift with a trolley.
Nice, but go no where to put it!
Gets the two boxes.
Goes outside and realises they have overcharged me for the boxes.
They updated the prices of the boxes on the system but left the old price on the boxes.
£3 refund given!
Then off to fill up Sexy Beast .
Got the newspaper.
Tool Station was next to pick up a empty tool box.
Final stop was Screw Fix.
Another empty tool box got.
Back home.
Coffee machine was put on.
Now to start tidying up the back garden.
After 25 minutes...
It's coffee time!
I got 3 rubble bags filled from the back garden.
They joined the 3 black bags from yesterday.
Then it started to rain.
Hubby grabbed his rain mac and went off down to the Household tip.
I carried on sorting out the back garden.
Filled another 3 rubble bags for his return.
Filled his car again.
Off he went again.
Back garden looks a lot better now.
Can get to the outside toilet now.
(However we use the inside one)
Lunch time.
Filled all the 7 tool boxes.
We have to start on making room in the Dining room to put them in!
As it's our 11th Wedding Anniversary on Monday, we have a action packed weekend to celebrate.
We had a early tea.
As hubby and younger son were going food shopping before it starts getting dark!
I gave them sloppy wet ones πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left.
I looked into today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1972:
Rod Stewart - You Wear It Well.
UK No.1 on this day in 2000:

I wrote two blog posts.
When hubby came back.

Now to bed with a warm hubby to enjoy some more Friday Feeling 🎈

Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start Friday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Now to get dressed.
(Thermal vest goes on)
My picture appeared in today's newspaper↓↓
(I'm the one holding the big stick!)
Now out of the house I go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one...
2 winter hats, and gloves go on.
I turned on my lights.
Now for some fun....🍭
Lots of traffic for Manic Friday.
One car slammed the brakes on, while I was crossing the road, the car behind her, slammed her brakes as well, and there was nearly a smack up her rear!
One car I stopped wasn't waiting for me to remove my stick in front of the car, she put her foot down, and I had to whisk my big stick out of her way!
Some people tried to cross without me, and no cars stopped for them. I stepped in, and they soon stopped.
A bus nearly smacked a car from behind when the car in front stopped suddenly.
Inches away the bus was.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Now to fetch the new breadmaker.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Drops off breadmaker and newspaper.
Back out for coffee, and yak.
I did bring along some blue milk.
But they had some already.
The first coffee was with double cream.
Next up a rather large brunch!
Two more coffees followed.
Lots of chat as well.
Said goodbye to my friend.
On the way home, I saw my friend who I chat to in the morning, with his wife walking the brown lab they are looking after, going for a walk.
I waved to them, as I went past.
Back home.
Opened the box of my new breadmaker.
I will have to try this out tomorrow.
Still to full to eat anything.
Now out for the final round 2 of the week.
On goes one winter hat, and a lightweight pair of gloves.
I turn on my lights.
I only have one friend to rabbit with.
(As my other friend is doing overtime at work)
Wished my friend a good weekend.
Now to do final shift of the week.
Still the car drivers do the Limbo Dance!
Plus having to put up with low lying sun as well.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time for me!
Now to put on the dishwasher, washing machine, and oven.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
As I was still full up from earlier.
Everyone else had either pie and chips or fish cake and chips.
I gave hubby a wet one when he came home.
I dished up their tea.
In the end, I had a cheese and cucumber bap.
Hubby wrote out the shopping list, and went out with son to do the shopping for next door as well.
I meanwhile looked in today's newspaper.
