Disco Time!

There are two types of people; those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am," and those who walk into a room and say, "Ah, there you are!". - Frederick Collins
Welcome to my SundayπŸ’‹
After the late night we had.
We had a bit of lie-in.
Nice brew in bed with a warm hug.
We just lay in bed listening to the radio.
Loud knock on the front door.
It was my next door neighbour.
He was locked out.
Good job his son gave me a spare key!
Now to get dressed!
First a warm coffee to wake the brain.
Then out for a little ride.
We got the newspaper.
Then to test hubby's air pressure of his tyres.
The electrics were playing up on his car....
Spooky time πŸ‘» 
Gets back home.
I use up some shortcrust pastry and a jar of mincemeat. 
Blind baked the pastry.
Let it cool down.
Added the filling and back in the oven it goes.
Late lunchtime.
The tart had been baked.
I gone on with cooking tonight's tea before putting it in the oven for later.
Belated Tea at 3.
I ordered some things I need for the upcoming Valentine's Day πŸ’—
Hopefully they will arrive before Feb 14th!
Tea is ready.

 Welcome to my Saturday 🍿
On this day in 2017,
I had an accident, 
Which involved an ambulance ride to my local hospital...
My Achilles tendon had come off the bone.
Plus the corner bone of my foot had gone 6 inches into my foot.
  (I had a phone call from by then Lollipop Supervisor the very next day, am I coming back to work?)
I was in hospital for 2 weeks.
I had my tendon reattached and bone glued back on!
8 months off work, I had to learn to walk and drive again!
Had brew with hug.
Washing machine went on, followed by the tumble drier being put on.
Now for coffee....
Hubby went out with one of our sons to drop off a box of Cds that belonged to my late dad to the Droitwich Lions.
I got out the sewing machine to finish off my face masks...
I got the final four facemasks finished...
Hubby comes back with son.
I had Kenny the Kenwood out for a quick play..
Banged the cake in the oven.
Light lunch time.
 While watching  
Season 2 of 
"Hell's Kitchen"....
The internet goes off....
We leave the final of series 2 until later.
Hubby and son has to go out and do the food shopping for us and our neighbour...
After a few hours of the cake being in the oven.
Time to decorate!
While in Lidl, the panic buying of toilet rolls is starting again....↓
At least they have a pack of 4 Shea Butter Toilet Rolls still on the shelf!
I get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby comes back.
They even got a Wonky Box from Lidl.
We had lots of lovely things in our box.
I used the Kale, courgette and aubergine.
Used it in tonight's veggie meal.
Now to tune it to Boris...↓
It's going to be interesting to see if hubby can work from home, from Thursday....
Fingers crossed once my knee gets better, and I can return back to work in two weeks!
 We finished watching the final of 
Hell's Kitchen season 2.
Then we moved onto Season 3.
