Trying Not To Be The Curtain Twitcher!

There's something in life, that's a curtain, and I keep on trying to raise it! -   Maxine Hong Kingston
Welcome to my Saturday 👾
Lots more fun on the sewing machine...
Brew with hug.
Bang bang on the front door.
Some of my stuff has arrived..
"Tell her to stop ordering stuff!" The postman told my hubby.
4 of the 5 parcels were mine, however the fifth one from New Look wasn't!
I got in contact with Gemma via Facebook.
She will pick it up after work.
I had some nice fabric from Fabric shop in Fleetwood, Lancs.
Hubby goes to get the food shopping from Lidl, while younger son does next door neighbour's shopping as well.
The woman comes for her parcel.
We share the same postman.
She can't praise him up enough, even after he wrongly delivered her parcel to me!
Now to get on with sewing the thermal backing on the curtains.
Hubby came back from shopping.
Light lunch...
My new CD arrived \o/

 Hubby put up the new curtain rail.
Then he added the curtain!
Quick Tea at 3.
I finally finished the bathroom curtain.
Now to hang it up!
Even hung up a new curtain in the Kitchen to stop the draughts from out kitchen door.
First half of the washing has been dried.
Next load to be dried, will be tomorrow.
Chicken with wedges for tea.
Back onto Season 5 of Hell's Kitchen.
With some sleep tea.
I normally don't yawn,
But I was tonight......
Nice warm 16 tog duvet awaits.....

Happy Tuesday 🎈

(Fan stops in box!)
 Hug and Brew time↑
Followed by breakfast.
Gets dressed.
Left it a bit late to walk to fetch the newspaper.
Into Sexy Beast once more↓
 Gets back, the sun has vanished.
Gives hubby a sloppy 💋 before he leaves for work.
I have a little play with Henry....

  With the first coffee of the day↓
  Now to start to write yesterday's blog.
I don't know whether my computer or You Tube was playing up. I couldn't put a lot of Belinda Carlisle's pop videos on as a lot of her videos were unavaliable.....
Even a mash up Talk Talk/No Doubt/Michael Jackson's It's My Life video was unavaliable .....FFS
(I only listened to it yesterday!!!)
(It's now back on!) 
I was having emails about the start of the new school year.
I might have to find out and dust down my suit to wear at dinnertime↓
One for my Lollipop job↓
 When it takes me about an hour to write a blog post, due to having problems with putting the videos on, it took me a further hour and another cup of coffee!!! Grrrrrr
I was glad when lunchtime came round!
 Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓
 I had more lovely material arrive↓
 Time to make more funky facemasks↓
 I got two rainbow facemasks made.
Just started to finish the shiny blue one when the needle snapped off!!!
Removed that one.
The second one ended up being bent!
 I added a third needle.
I couldn't thread the thread.
Tried the needle threader↓
It broke off!
I needed a belated tea at 3
 After pissing about for another half an hour, I finally threaded the needle!
I then had to walk away and let my patience grow back!
I put the tea on...
Hubby had a bad afternoon at work as well.
Nice sloppy 💋 and a big hug...
We then felt a lot better!
Tea was ready↓
 Another episode of ↓
 Then off to do some work...
 First big tune↓
 Lots of singing along.....
It's nice and dark when I got back home↓
 It's Billy J Kramer's 77th Birthday tomorrow....plenty of tunes of his on tomorrow's blog post.
Here is a tune to get you into the mood!
 It looks like it's going to soggy Hump of the Week tomorrow...
I took my sleep tea upstairs to bed↓
Let's hope I have a better day tomorrow...
Surely it can't get any worst?????
