Too Bloody Short!

It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously -   Peter Ustinov
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Has brew with hug.
Hubby fetches my newspaper from the shop.
I give him a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
One son has a sloppy one before he leaves for school too.
I tidy up the Living room.
Make sure all the houseplants are still alive.
The remaining ones that gets watered.
One plant had to be given the last rites before it want in to the composter.
At least there is room for some Christmas things that can be finally seen!
I found my Christmas House which lights up.
Now for a much needed coffee!
Quick look in the newspaper↓

  I caught up with yesterday's blog.
With a dash of Hell's Kitchen season 9.
My curtain pole arrived.
The man delivering it, wasn't a happy bunny...
(Had a job finding me probably....)
The sooner I put up those red  frilly lacey knickers on the street lamp outside, the better.
One son put the pole up.
Forgot to add the curtain rings to it...
The other son then took it down, added the curtain rings, added the curtain I made to it.
Oh dear, the curtain is too small for the window...
2 inches each side......
That put me a bad mood....
Tea at 3 time...
I was going to fit some lining to more curtains,
But I didn't feel like it!
I put the tea in the oven ready for later...
Hubby comes home and has a nice sloppy wet one!
Dished up the fish tea...
Back to season 9....
The winner was:
Now onto Season 10.
I had my Sleep Tea↓
Hubby went to bed as he kept falling asleep.
I stopped up for one more episode.
Then I went straight to sleep when I went to bed......

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 ThursdayπŸ‘―
No problems on the snoring front....
Hug with a brew.
Hubby went out and got my newspaper for me.
He had a jolly good wet πŸ’‹ 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 🎈
 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.
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 tomorrow🎈
