All Aboard The New Cabin Bed!

My last credit card bill was so big, before I opened it, I actually heard a drum roll - Rita Rudner
Welcome to my Thursday 💣💥
We were up really early as we were expecting the delivery of my son's cabin bed.
We didn't have to wait long.
3 heavy boxes containing the bits of bed.
The delivery man carried one box on his own to our door.
I don't know what he thought when he saw hubby and I trying to lift one box and struggling!
Now to get the kids up to take down the bed my son is sleeping in, and clear out his room.
6 black bags and counting....
While I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby walked to the newspaper shop to fetch the newspaper.
Coffee time!
Both sons were putting the cabin bed together.
I put the washing machine back on....
I tidied up in the kitchen and living room.
Another Prima Makes magazine arrived \o/
Nice easy lunch.
Hubby went over to see his dad and add some lovely things to his late mum's grave.
I meanwhile had some pom poms to make.....
Tea at 3.
I made 11 pom poms until I ran out of wool!
I am waiting now for the delivery of wool now....
Hubby's mum grave is looking nice.
(The brown lining will be replaced with black weed barrier soon)
The solicitor sorting out the estate of my late dad's is now waiting for the house to be signed off.Then will take YET MORE WEEKS for THEM do the final settlement of what each sibling is getting and how much the Solicitors and Estate Agents fees are...
(I dread to think what their fees are going to be!)
The buyer of the house is dragging their feet on signing the papers and returning them to their Solicitor.....!!
It looking like July or August before this gets sorted!!!!
Now for tea!
I looked inside today's newspaper.

Quick look in the newspaper as well.
Edwin Starr (born Charles Edwin Hatcher) was an American singer and songwriter. Starr was famous for his Norman Whitfield-produced Motown singles of the 1970s, most notably the number-one hit "War".
Starr was born in Nashville and raised in Ohio, and later lived in Detroit while singing for Ric-Tic and Motown Records. He was backed by the band that would become known as "Black Merda". Hawkins and Veasey of the group played on most of his early hits on the Ric Tic Label. Starr's songs "25 Miles" and "Stop the War Now" were also major successes, in 1969 and 1971 respectively. In the 1970s Starr's base shifted to the United Kingdom, where he continued to produce music, and resided until his death.
He sadly died on this day in 2003 aged 61
