Don't torture yourself. That's my job - Morticia Addams, The Addams Family
Welcome to my Thursday Coffee,Cake and Chat day 😍
I had a nice shower before Breakfast and Brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he went to work.
Now to load up the cake into Sexy Beast.
The books for the Charity Shop.
My youngest son is ready to go.
Here we go...
Parks up.
I met one friend walking his dog, I gave him two cupcakes, and will see  him and his wife later on at the coffee morning.
Drops off the cakes, ready for the upcoming Coffee Morning.
Then off to drop off things at the Charity Shop and their chocolate cake I made for them.

Goes into the coffee morning.
My cupcakes had gone but my Llama cake was still there.
I had a coffee and a little bit of someone's else's cake.
Had a chat with 3 of my friends, the 4th friend was busy.
One friend left, and will be seeing him later on in the month as it's his 73rd Birthday 🎈
No one wanted my Llama cake, it was going to be the 7th prize in the raffle.
In the end I took it back, put it back in the tin.
I left with my two other friends.
(I did try my luck on the raffle)
(I will find out later if I have won something)
I wished my friends a good holiday and off we went to see if I could give my Llama cake to someone else.
First went over to my friend's workplace.
Locked up.
Went over to see his husband at  home.
Not there either.
Leaves a wet raspberry as a message on his answering machine.
Goes home to unpack all my goodies.
Liquid lunch time.
Didn't win nothing on the raffle :(
I got on with writing two more blog posts.
Tea at 3.
I put our tea in the oven.
My friend came over for the cake.
Hubby came home, and had a sloppy wet one 💋

The Council sent out Plumber to service the boiler.
I asked him,"Has he got a new boiler in his van to fit here?"
He laughed.
I told him why I left a box under the boiler, as the last three times it has leaked and ruined all my duvet covers! 
They don't check if the cooker has a chain on it no more.
I said,"Bet you have seen some cookers in your time?"
He pulled a face.
I told him about a certain cooker that hadn't been cleaned in over 30 years.When my hubby tried to clean it, the paint came off it.
When the Plumber came to disconnect the cooker, I passed him gloves so he could touch it.
When he took it outside, it was so hot, it was making the dried fat, turn liquid!
The Plumber pulled a face after I told him that.
Second year running the report says to have a upgrade on the 16 year old boiler!
Doesn't look like a new boiler is going to fitted any time soon!
Lunch time.
More blogging to do.

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.

There was only one episode of Top of the Pops to watch tonight from 1990.

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 🎈
