Out With The Old, In Comes The New!

 One way to help the weather make up its mind is to hang out washing - Marcelene Cox

Now for some singing along with some big tunes.
Time for breakfast.
Dressed.
I take our two sons out, while hubby waits in for the Tiler to come.
 There was too much traffic around for the time of the morning. I tried to get into a lane, and no one would let me in, so I did to go around another island and head back to the island I needed to go around!
Drops one son off at work.
Then off to Sainsburys we go.
Got some bits and pieces.
Now round to see mum and dad.
One 7 balloon had gone down from last week.
Said goodbye to my parents.
Off to Lidl we go.
Where has all of the crisps gone?

Got our bits and pieces.
Back home.
The Tiler was doing a great job.
Got all of the old tiles off the walls.
Now to put on the new tiles.
We all were sorting out the front garden.
Putting holes in the bottom of the plant pots.
Hubby got all the leaves up and put them in the composters.
I went out to have a chat with Joe's sister.
There was a nice sunset....
I said goodbye to Joe's sister and went back home.
The Tiler has done a great job.
He will be finishing it tomorrow \o/
We might just have enough tiles for the final wall.
We caught up with the final of season 20 of Hell's Kitchen.
Tea time.
