Your Mission Should You Decide To Accept It!

Make your life a mission - not an intermission - Arnold Glasgow
Welcome to my weekend🍿
I woke up at 5.30am....
I decided to get up, I had tea to drink, toast to eat, and a blog to write!
I listened to the Sounds of the Sixties.
Great music to listen to...
Sleeping Beauty got up just after the Sounds of the 60s had finished.
Coffee time↓
Hubby dropped off one son for his boxing class.
Then he started to prune the branches of the Apple and Plum trees.
(As the branches were too near to our telephone line!)
I had some nice material come earlier in the week. Now to cut it up ready to make some nice facemasks with it↓
I put 3 layers of material together and clipped them together...
Forgot to add the strip of elastic....
I gave up half way cutting the elastic..
As it's time for lunch↓
Hubby had cut off two branches of the plum tree. Four branches of the apple tree.
The telephone line is now safe!
I gets the shopping list from my neighbour.
Off to do some serious shopping for the first time in 10 days!
 Nice view of the sun on the way to Lidl↓
Nice pants, shame about the colour!
Hubby bought himself some nice Boxer shorts.....↓
I made the sale assistants laugh on the till when I paid for the some shopping for my Home Bargains...
He sets me a misson every week to get something that LIDL doesn't sell..
This week's mission was:
 Mission Completed!
Gets back home. 
Give neighbour his shopping.
Once we put our shopping away..
Time to do our evening meal....
That was yummy↑
