Something Has Come Down In Price!

The only parts of my original body are my elbows - Phyllis Diller
Welcome to my Thursday 🎶
Nice big hug to start the day with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Hubby got ready for work.
He had a nice wet one before he left for work.
Then I got up,
(Thermal vest went on)
While kids got up.
I enjoyed a early coffee...
Once we were ready to go....
We left:
First stop, to get the newspaper.
Next stop was Sainsburys↓
A laundry basket I wanted last year,
has now been reduced!
£6.50 instead of £20 last year :)
The kids got my Birthday cards for Monday.
Front cover of Private Eye.
Dropped off son at work.
Back home.
The laundry basket was soon filled!
The dishwasher was on the load up.
The coffee machine was put on.
Now to do some tidying up around the place!
With added coffee!
Once that was done.
I started writing two blog posts.
My lunchtime was inbetween.
Back on to it.
Tea at 3 next. 
I just finished the last blog when hubby came home.
He was rewarded with a sloppy wet one!
Pan fried the pork chops.
Then chopped up various veg that needed to be ate up.
Then all put in the oven for 20 minutes.
Tea is served on a bed of basmati rice.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
Alfredo Lettieri  was an American actor. Active during the 1960s and 70s until his death, he commonly portrayed villainous characters. He achieved recognition for his performance as mobster Virgil Sollozzo in the crime film The Godfather (1972) and appeared in several other productions alongside Hollywood's biggest screen stars.
He would have been 94 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 47 in 1975. 
Paul Jones (born Paul Pond, ) is an English singer, actor, harmonicist, radio personality and television presenter. He first came to prominence as the lead singer and harmonicist of the successful 1960s group Manfred Mann, with whom he had several Top Ten hit records from 1962 to 1966. He presented The Blues Show on BBC Radio 2 for thirty-two years, from 1986 to 2018.

He is 75 years old 🎈 
Johnnie Ray 
was an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. Highly popular for most of the 1950s, Ray has been cited by critics as a major precursor to what became rock and roll, for his jazz and blues-influenced music, and his animated stage personality. Tony Bennett called Ray the "father of rock and roll", and historians have noted him as a pioneering figure in the development of the genre.

Look No Hands!

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
 Welcome to my Tuesday 😱
Nice warm hug with brew.
It's going to be nice day for sunshine!
I give hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I leave.
The big big sunglasses had to come out.
On goes the summer coat
(With a jacket underneath)
Now for the fun to start...🎈
It goes alright until....
I'm standing on the pavement, when a car is coming towards me, and the car starts to veer towards me.....
The woman car driver was messing with her hair, and no hands are on the steering wheel!
She then suddenly veered the car back....
I just shook my head.
Most cars try to get me in the road,
Not on the pavement!
The white Telsa didn't stop again.
Nearly had a few near taps and cracks this morning! 
I'm glad I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Now for that important coffee..
I start writing Sunday's blog post,
When DPD's customer service department phones me about the misdelivered parcel.
"I will get the driver to get it and redeliver it."
Was what they said......
We shall see....
My friend pops in for chat with coffee.
I said goodbye to my friend later on.
(I will see my friend later on in the week for more chat and coffee....)
Then it's time for afternoon shift.
As I get into Sexy Beast, I notice a DPD van goes past. I rush to end of my drive, and it's vanished into one of factory units.
Gets back into Sexy Beast.
I changes to another CD to listen to.
The Summer coat gets put on.
Puts my lights on.
Chats with the woman who has given me some plants and vice versa.
My friend came with dog.
I gives my friend some bread pudding
(My neighbour gets my younger son some on a Monday, and he got too much for just himself to eat,so I gave my friend some)
We sits and has a chat in the sunshine.
Once it was time for me to start.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Some cars had to stop as I was in there way.
Some cars seem it quite funny not having to stop.
A few near tap and cracks again.
At least I finished in one piece!
Now back home.
No parcel from DPD was there waiting for me.
I just about have had enough of this!
I asked the Seller for a refund.
The email I got was:
"DPD works late in the evening, you might get your parcel!"
Fine I can wait until 9pm!
I get on with making a Beef Casserole.
Out come the cast iron Casserole Dish.
Once I put that in the oven.
I watered all the plants.
Then to carry on writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋.
Dished up the food.
(Ate it too quick for a picture, the dumplings were nice!)
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Michael Lonsdale-Crouch, commonly known as Michael Lonsdale and sometimes named as Michel Lonsdale, was a French actor who appeared in over 180 films and television shows. He is best known in the English-speaking world for his roles as the villain Hugo Drax in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker, the detective Claude Lebel in The Day of the Jackal, The Abbot in The Name of the Rose and Dupont d'Ivry in The Remains of the Day

Another nice full moon...
We watched the new series of "Bake Off".
While watching it, I had my book to finish.
 As normal, no DPD redelivering of my parcel.
Got in touch with Seller.
"Give me a refund please!"
Sleep tea time.
Finding out if I got permission to board the loft, and expecting another parcel to be delivered by DPD tomorrow
What could go wrong?????🐫
