It Only Takes One!

When things are at their worst I find something always happens - 
W Somerset Maugham
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Brew with added hug.
Hubby fetched my newspaper before he went off to work.
I gave him a sloppy big 💋 before he went to work.
The kids tried to dodge the sloppy 💋,
Alas they failed ;)
Coffee time!
With a look in the newspaper↓
P.J. Proby (born James Marcus Smith) is an American singer, songwriter, and actor. He portrayed Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison in musical theater productions. The stage name P. J. Proby was suggested by a friend, Sharon Sheeley, who had a boyfriend of that name at high school.
Proby recorded the singles "Hold Me", "Somewhere", and "Maria". In 2008, he turned 70 and EMI released the Best of the EMI Years 1961–1972. He still writes and records on his own independent record label, Select Records, and performs in the UK in Sixties concerts.He is 82 years old 🎈
Len Barry (born Leonard Borisoff; ) was an American vocalist, songwriter, and record producer. His first two hits also made the Top Ten of the UK Singles Chart. "1-2-3" reached number three.He died on November 5th 2020, aged 78.
 I went outside for some fresh air.....
I then wrote yesterday's blog post.
Light lunch.
I had some more Superhero fabric to make more masks with↓
Some people can't load up the dishwasher probably....
In future I will load and unload it up...
Do It Yourself......
Now to use the yellow thread on sewing machine...
Now to add more thermal lining to my late mum's curtains....
(That are 45 years old)
Hubby is replacing the small curtain rail tomorrow, as the curtain rail is only held on by two screws...
I put the tea in the oven and get back to sewing.
My younger brother phoned me up on the update of my dad's estate.
The solicitor has had to send out again the forms we all need to sign to have the funds in my dad's bank accounts....
The excuse was his bank has lost the forms.
(Sounds fishy, as the solicitor kept saying she was waiting for them to get back to her!)
Won't see anything until January now!
Even the house sale of my late dad's house has hit a bump in the road..
June next year before we see anything from the sale of it!!! 
On top of the Prodical brother putting invoice in for £3200, younger brother has put invoice in for £1200 for the work he put in on doing some painting etc in my late dad's house!!!
Perhaps I should put a invoice in for the skip I had to hire to put all the stuff from my dad's house, that was no good!!!
My dad's lady friend is still banging her gums about me......I don't want to hear what she has to say, normally no good anyway.
Always takes someone to ruin my good mood, this time is my younger brother!!!
Hubby had a big sloppy 💋 when he came back.
Tea is served up.
Now to watch the final two episodes of season 4 Hell's Kitchen.
The winner was:
Now onto Season 5.
With some Sleep Tea.
Now to welcome in the weekend 🎈

The Honeymoon Is Over!

Never answer a critic, unless he's right - Bernard M Baruch
Welcome to a large Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
I enjoyed a much needed hug and a cup of tea in bed.
 I gave everyone sloppy 💋💋💋 before I left the house.
Good job I had those thermal knickers on...
 It was freezing↓
 I had a lovely CD to listen and to sing along to↓
 At last the sun is coming up to greet me↓
 Time to use the lollipop 🍭
I said hello to an ex-postie whose Postal Walk I took over from him in 1993.
(I went on to do the Postal Walk for 19 years!)
I met loads of new people to cross over. 
Oh dear...
One car failed to stop for the Lollipop...
I survived....
Back home..
It was still cold↓
 I enjoyed coffee and vitamin C↓
 Plus some early lunch↓
 Back out in the sunshine↓
  More singing along on the way...
I did my two minutes silence at 11am.
 Quick look at the newspaper↓

Roger LaVern (born Roger Keith Jackson) Keyboards for The Tornados
would have been 82 years old 🎈
He died aged 75 in 2013.
Jim Peterik from the band Survivor is 69 years old 🎈

I looked across the fields of fun↓
 I had a nice red face when I got finished.
More singing to do...
The birds were enjoying the nuts↓
 Nice coffee time!
 Back onto the Lollipop
 I had 4 cars fail to stop.
The 5th car wasn't so lucky...
She had choice,
Either stop or the lollypop stick goes through her windscreen!
At least I haven't had the swear words cast at me like at my previous lollipop job!
The Honeymoon is now over!
I gets back home.
Quick drink, then off to the Happy Place Called Work.
One comment I had was:
"You are getting later every day!"
"Blame the traffic!" I replied. 
When I finished.
Chicken Stir Fry time↓
 Then off to do my final job of the day with some great music to sing along with↓
 When I got back,
I took off the hot hot hot boots
 It was nice to have warm hugs from hubby.
I went to sleep like a light!

Finding The Bed!

People do not change, they are merely revealed - Anne Enright
So much for a lie-in.
It didn't help we slept on the sofa overnight,as we couldn't get to the bed....↓ 
 They played my son's Birthday request (for next Saturday) ...on our local radio station.
They even played a song from one of his favourite artists...
Now out in the sexy beast↓
 I drop off my dad's newspaper to him.
Then I dropped off my kids at the meeting with their dad.
(After not seeing him for 18 months!)
I come back for coffee and nibble↓
 After nearly three hours of trying to put the first wardrobe together.
(Not getting very far!)
We went to Dunelm and Lidl to keep our mind off the bedroom for a moment!
 We put up the new voiles in the bedroom window...
 We go and see my dad.
The old wardrobe is waiting to be collected by my younger brother...↓
 We moved the stuff off the bed.
Once we got the first wardrobe made up, the wardrobe rail breaks off!!!!
Back onto Amazon to get a new stronger one!
Back to sleep in the bed at last!
(With the ear plugs!)
