Stripping Off The Layers!

One can never be too thin or too rich - Wallis Simpson
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’ͺ
Nice big warm hug to start the day with.
Followed by brew and breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to unwrap Sexy Beast.
The sun might be out,
but it's well cold.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The big big sunglasses goes on.
As well as two hats and warm gloves.
I turns on my lights.
Now time to Rock 'n' Roll.
Where has all the traffic gone?
It is so quiet for a change!
The normal black car with the granddad driving his granddaughter goes straight under my raised stick....Limbo dancer I call it.
He never stops....
I actually stopped the yellow Fiat car that normally never stops, this time I was in the middle of road with my big stick on her side of the road.
I finished in one piece.
Off to get some milk...
I did a bit of shopping in Lidl.
Nipped into Dunelm, had a look around.
The Only thing I got my favourite kitchen cleaner:
Method.
Gets the newspaper on the way home.
Puts the coffee machine on.
Now to strip of the bed clothes.
I put on another teddy duvet and teddy sheet.
On top of the 16 tog duvet cover.
We should be well warm!
Loaded up the dishwasher.
Cleaned the kitchen.
Put on the soup maker on for new batch.
Coffee time.
Lit some incense and tried to meditate.
Felt better after that!
Soup time!
Finished off the soup that was in the fridge.
Now for part two...
Time for those big big sunglasses again.
I took off one winter hat, but kept on my gloves.
Turned on my lights.
Walked back to Sexy Beast.
Getting well warm.
Off goes jumper, scarf, and gloves. 
I couldn't take nothing else off.
Goes and waits by the bench for my friends.
My friends appeared.
Time for a little rabbit...
Said goodbye to my friends.
The family who had a visit from the Police last Friday, left in a red car.
20 minutes two nurses were at there door trying to get in. I shouted over they had left a little earlier. One nurse came over and told her they all left about 20 minutes. She thanked me for giving her the heads up.
The normal fun I had for giving out BOINGs.
One boy racer went past and could feel the burn I was giving out, he mouthed something at me, I mouthed "Afternoon" back to him!
I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Much needed brew needed.
I got on writing yesterday's blog post.
Half way through writing it, I put the tea on.
Hubby came home.
He had a sloppy wet one.
Dished up out Pasta dish.
Finished writing my blog after tea.
Had a quick look in today's newspaper.

Hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Got my kids up ready for school.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went off to work.
Gave my kids πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before they left for school.
I emptied the dishwasher and loaded it back up.
Tidied up the kitchen.
I went outside for some fresh air.
Followed by a much needed cup of coffee.
I needed to get out of this house for half an hour.
So I went to see my parents.
My other brothers hadn't been up to leave any flowers for Mother's Day.
(Not surprised really!)
I tidied up the grave.
I had a quick chat with them.
I went past my late dad's house.
Yellow and blue cars now parked on the drive as well as my brother's limo and his wife's car.
Where is he going to park them all when the house has been sold?
I gets back home.
Time for a little play with Henry.
Now to look in my buttons collection for my son's suit jacket.
Got the buttons sown on.
Time to write yesterday's blog post.
Once published.
Lunchtime.
Then I made a beef stew with dumplings for tea.
In the oven ready to put on.
Tea at 3.
Then I started to have a sort out of things that are under the sideboard in the living room.
Once the Droitwich Lions start up again, I have loads of books from my late dad's house to give them.
More big sorting out tomorrow as well.
Hubby comes home.
I give him a big sloppy πŸ’‹

Welcome to my Sunday😳
Brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Going to see if my knee had hold up driving...
Gives Sexy Beast a good run. 
Picks up the Overlocker.
One woman in a grey Kia didn't like me sticking to the speed limit. Looked over at me, and my husband just looked back at her!
One white Audi came out of a side road and didn't see me coming. Then he got stuck behind a bus and didn't like that!
I was glad to get home in one piece!
Now to take the overlocker into the house!
It will have to share the space with the Sewing Machine.
(I will have to make it a dust jacket soon)
Much needed cup of coffee after that Journey.
While hubby went for a walk
(Peace and quiet from me more like!)
I carried on sewing my bag....
Finally finished it now!
