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↓

 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 🎈

One car got impatient and wouldn't wait for someone to cross.
At least I finished in one piece.
Back home↓
Quick drink and off to the Happy Place of Work.
Someone was going to give me the bumps on Friday for my real Birthday on Saturday.

He chose to stop.
Once finished, I went home.
 Liquid refreshment with vitamin C.
Quick dash of housework.

I told her the story, when one of my sons was about six years old and on a Police Open Day at our local Police Station. He pointed to a pair of handcuffs on a Policeman and said:
"My mum has a pair of those too!"
I smiled and the Policeman smiled back!
