You have no idea how much it costs to look this cheap -

Welcome to July!😎
Once the alarm was turned, I fell back to sleep...
Looked at my watch it was 6.50!!!!
Got up, washed and changed.
Woke up kids.
Breakfast with a slurp of brew.
Gave out my sloppy wet 💋💋💋 to everyone.
Now out of the house I go.
Wearing some fancy trousers...
Time to wear the summer coat!
Tree pic.
Now for the fun to start!
The Cheeky Window Cleaner shouted through his window to me:
"You still left your pyjamas on!"
Didn't see the Lambo...
Instead  a nice white McLaren sports car went past me.
A few cars had to test their brakes!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Last day for the Bunting to be up in the garden!
Much needed coffee.
Younger son wasn't up,
So we didn't go to Bidford car boot this week.
Instead I did some shopping on-line on the Dunelm website....
"Sale Time!"
My new trainers had arrived. 
However, looking at the size of the box.
(Being on the small size)
It turns out they are a size 10!
(I am size 12!)
Wrapped the packet back up, and going to send it back later.
Now to get tea made for later...
Rolled out the pastry.
A bit of blind bake time...
Fried up some peppers, mushrooms, garlic and spinach in a pan.
Once done, I checked the jar of Pesto.
(Gone off!)
I used a carton of  Tomato Passata instead.
Added everything, and put it in the oven for later.
Watered the plants outside.
I had a bit of missmatch for lunch.
Run out of salad, just had bits of the fridge.
I left the house a bit early to post the parcel.
 I put on the 50's CD on I bought at the weekend.
Kept playing one song over and over again,
As it is that feel good feeling!
The song is:
Posted the trainers back,
First Class Recorded Delivery.
Now down to do my afternoon shift of Lollipop.
The sun was trying to break out of the clouds.
Summer coat went on.
Now for bedlam to start.
There were two coachers parked further up the road, which caused a backlog of car trying to get pass them. A lorry further down the road, had car drivers backing up the otherside of the road.
Cars everywhere!
Banging of gums as well, especially when I had to stop the car drivers.
One man went past and shouted to me:
"You didn't stop me!"
"I will next time!" I laughed.
Parents were still trying to cross behind the coaches to get over the road in front of moving traffic!
At least I finished in one piece.
I was going to get a drink from the near-by mini-mart.
As I was picking up by Dunelm order, I might as well nip into Lidl and get a drink.
Picked up my order from Dunelm.
Picked a salad and a drink from Lidl next.
Back home to see the Bunting had been took down!
Time to unpack my bargains from Dunelm.
At least the house is going to smell nice :)
I caught up on 3 days newspapers.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Time to slice up the tart!
So yum!
Nice long look into today's newspaper.

Robert J Sawyer

Hug with a brew!
Hubby went out to clear his car of snow...
I gave him a big sloppy 💋 before he left.
I got the kids up to do their on-line learning.
I meanwhile got on writing my blog post from yesterday.
Before I did my Jukebox on Twitter.
Time to get the newspaper..
Still cold!

Back home.
Now for a much needed coffee!
Look in the newspaper
 Dame Shirley  Bassey, DBE  is a Welsh singer, whose career began in 1953, well known for her expressive voice and for recording the soundtrack theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979). In January 1959, Bassey became the first Welsh person to gain a No. 1 single. In 2000, Bassey was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to the performing arts. In 1977 she received the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist in the previous 25 years. Bassey is one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain.
She is 84 years old 🎈 

Peter Sarstedt, briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was a British singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive Sarstedt.
Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969. Set to a "faux European waltz tune" and described as "a romantic novel in song", it won an Ivor Novello Award. The record remained Sarstedt's biggest hit, despite his releasing numerous successful albums and singles from the late 1960s onward.
He died on this day in 2017 aged 75. 
Michael  Apted, CMG was a British director, producer, writer and actor. One of the most prolific English film directors of his generation, he is known for directing: the Up series (1964–), the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough (1999), and the American film Coal Miner's Daughter (1980); the latter being nominated for seven Academy Awards, including for the Best Picture. He also directed Nell (1994), which received three Golden Globe Award nominations and one Academy Award nomination, and the critically-acclaimed films Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and Enigma (2001). 
He died on the 7th January 2021 aged 79. 

I added my Jukebox tunes to Twitter.
