Rolling, Rolling Into The New Year!

May all your troubles last long as your New Year 's resolutions -
Joey Adams.
New Year's Eve 
Welcome to my Friday Feeling πŸ’‹
Nice big warm hug.
Goes back to sleep,
Wakes up 8.30am!
Gets up son,
(Who is supposed to be in by 9am!)
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Cuts three pieces of Christmas cake.
Just about to leave the house and it starts raining.
Puts on the rain mac.
Now to leave the house.
I gets the newspaper on the way.
Drops off son with 2 pieces of Christmas cake.
Then off to see my friend with other piece of Christmas cake.
Has a nice chat, coffee.
Wishes her a Happy New Year.
Gets back home.
 Hubby had took all the things off the bathroom wall, ready to apply some nice blue paint to the walls.
The Dunelm order I put in on Christmas Eve, which was supposed to be ready for yesterday, isn't ready, which doesn't help that I had ordered some rollers to paint the wall with!
I put a Click and Collect order with Screwfix for some rollers,
(I checked they had some in stock before I ordered them.)
We went out to Morrisons to get some bits.
(Hoping I would get the text message to pick up the rollers while I was out)
We have a easy lunch when we got back.
With some much needed coffee.
I opened my packets that came this morning.
It didn't help the one sat in the chair, the arm had broken off in the process of being delivered.
Do you think I could find my super glue?
One of the kids used it last time, and didn't give me back!
Great.
I had to go and order some more!
I went to see how hubby was doing on painting the bathroom.
As we had no paint rollers,he had to use a paint brush instead.
I put my hand on a bit of newly painted wall.
I had a nice blue hand ;) 
Time to relax with coffee.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Still nothing from Screwfix.
(It is now shut until Sunday)
I have tried to cancel my Dunelm order as my order has frozen in time!
Time for a much needed drink as well.
 Boxes up the Nutcracker Soldiers
&
Christmas House.
As the Christmas Decs are coming down tomorrow.
Hubby starts on his Rum...
We had some party food to eat.
We caught up on a tv programme we recorded earlier on in the week about Terry Wogan.
Wogan:Now You're Talking.
Then onto 
"Have I Got News For You" Best of 2021.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Eric Nelson  known professionally as Ricky Nelson, was an American singer, musician, and actor.
He died on this day in 1985 aged 45. 
Dean Ford (born Thomas McAleese ) was a Scottish singer and songwriter best known for his tenure as lead vocalist and frontman of the beat pop group Marmalade from 1966 to 1974.
