Jazzing It Up!

We may go to the Moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us - Charles De Gaulle
 
Welcome to my Thursday๐Ÿ‘ฏ
No problems on the snoring front....
Hug with a brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby went out and got my newspaper for me.
He had a jolly good wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he went to work.
One of our other sons couldn't escape from it either!
I went round to see my neighbour with his magazine.
I found out why I hadn't received my gardening magazine, as it was delivered to him and not me!
Back to mine for coffee..
Quick read of the newspaper.
 Jodie Foster is an American actress and director. She has received two Academy Awards, three British Academy Film Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and the Cecil B. DeMille Award. For her work as a director, she has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.She is 58 years old ๐ŸŽˆ
 I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Found out where the staples were stored.
Now to jazz up the floor lamp!
The trim was in the sale, in Dunelm before the second lockdown took place. I always find something to use things with.
I had to phone the Doctors, has I have been having stomach cramps for the past four days.
I read the leaflet for the tablets, if having stomach cramps stop taking them.
Will wait to see what the Doctor has to say about it.
Lunchtime
Plus 2 episodes of Hell's Kitchen season 9.
I actually had some post today.\o/
One Christmas present had to be hidden away!
The Doctor phoned. Stop the tablets straight away. If the knee is still painful, before I am due to go back, they will extend the sick note.
(I will so be popular if that happens!) 
Now to thread the bobbin!
Woo hoo....
My chalk and pinking shears has arrived!
Now to measure up the material for the curtain!
It has two layers of thermal backing.
After I clipped it altogether, pan fried the pork chops and let them cook in  some nice cider.
Got the curtain made \o/
Found some curtain rings I bought in the sale at B&Q a few months ago, that will help!
Dished up the meal for everyone.
Pork Chop with homemade Stuffing, on top of noodles with Crab Apple Jelly.
Then we caught up on the two episodes of Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen.
With Sleep Tea.
We are putting up the Christmas decorations up this weekend. How this year has gone, we need a bit of sparkle....
I'm glad I got my late mum's Xmas decorations from my dad's house↓↓
I was looking to see what is coming up on the early Black Friday on Amazon for tomorrow....
I might update the Christmas lights...
Our house won't end up looking  like Blackpool Illuminations, but it might be close!
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow๐ŸŽˆ

Got to chase up the sicknote..
Brew with warm hug.
Breakfast.

Hubby fetched my newspaper for me.
I gave him a big sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he went to work.

He had a sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ also.

I wrote yesterday's fun blog post.
I phoned the Doctors.My sick note was still there. They emailed it to me in the half an hour.
Then I emailed it to everyone who had to have it.....
Lunch time!
with some more Hell's Kitchen.
After l had lunch....
I needed to move on from facemasks...
Nearly took my finger off with the sharp Pizza Cutter (I call it!).
I am going brave my adding a lining to the inside of the bag.
Tea at 3. 
I got the lining sewn on the two main pieces for the bag....
Carry on with it tomorrow.
Only put a small amount of rice in the pan as if you don't.... I would feed a small European country!
There was added kick of Chilli.....
Onion and Mushroom Risotto. 
I still had some left over.
Hubby took it round for the next door neighbour, as he likes nice and spicy.
Back onto Hell's Kitchen.
Then to turn over to watch 
The Great British Bake Off.
With some Sleep Tea↓
Let's hope it's going to be a brighter Hump Day tomorrow ๐Ÿซ
