Adding To The Tree!

Never do anything in bed that you can't pronounce - Mitch Murray
Welcome to my Sunday๐ŸŽˆ
I was up far too early for a Sunday↓
 I left Sleeping Beauty to enjoy his lie-in.
While I caught up with my blog,
I had tea with some homemade bread....↓
 After I wrote the 3 blog posts.
Sleeping Beauty awoke,
Presented myself with some breakfast.
After getting dressed,
Writing the shopping list...
Time for coffee and nibble outside↓
 Followed by a early light lunch↓
 My friends were dropping by.
I made sure they left with some cake I made↓
 I kept my 2 metres distance.
Even had a Police Car come down the road.
(Very rare sight on a Sunday!)
I said goodbye to my friends.
Then we went off for a little ride out↓ 
 To Lidl we go↓
 We came back to enjoy a much needed ice cream!
 Followed by tea at 3pm↓
That was the last of the cake!
More needed to make for tomorrow!
Oh what flavour of cake can I do tomorrow?????
That is the most important of the day tomorrow!
 Added more pom poms to the tree↓

How Many Boxes????

Beauty is only skin deep, ugly to the bone - Murphy's Law
We had a bit of a lie-in.
It was nice to have a warm hug and a cuppa↓ 
 We still had loads of boxes to sort through.
I needed a break!
Off to do some food shopping↓
I bumped into an ex-co-worker who I used to work with at 
 If it got any worst with panic buying, and soldiers would be called out. She would argue with a soldier with a loaded gun if she had too, she told me.
Good luck with that! I told her.
There was a nice sewing machine for sale↓
 I have two, I don't need a third!
We go into Lidl and there is no pasta, bread or toilet roll again.
I bump into a good friend trying to find some dried spaghetti.
We get the shopping home.
Something has to come out of the freezer..
Why leave it to go to waste?↓
 I sorted all the things I need for my the Wobbly Work Wheel ๐ŸŽก
So many boxes to sort out.
The Plumber is coming out next Saturday to fit the dishwasher and washing machine.
We all went to bed early,
As Monday's are the most tiring day of the week!

Welcome to the weekend ๐ŸŽˆ

Nice cup of coffee I take upstairs to get dressed and wake up the kids..
 It didn't go down too well they had to get up before 9am!
Once up and changed.
Time to get some fresh air↓
 We parked on the college car park like yesterday.
 Now off to the School Uniform Bank
 I met up with so many friends to have a yak with.....
I had a good yak session for a good hour and half.
Son was trying on new shoes,
Which I will be buying next week..
 Even when we were walking back to the car, I bumped into another friend for a catch up!
 Dark clouds are coming..
Now to do a few days shopping↓
 Birthday card for my friend's son↓
 While hubby and son went to fetch some gerbil bedding for our gerbils, 
I stopped in car,
As I knew too well,
I would be bringing another pet home with me↓
 Back home↓

Interior Design Masters
Ten aspiring interior designers on the cusp of turning professional are taking part in the biggest design challenge of their lives. Arriving at a design studio in east London, they nervously meet each other for the first time, before being welcomed by series presenter Fearne Cotton.
Dragons’ Den
 back for its seventeenth series, and a there is a new fire breather in town. Crafting queen Sara Davies, the youngest ever Dragon, joins titans of industry Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvani in a den that is hotter than ever. 
In this fierce first episode, a spiced rum entrepreneur gets the party started by giving the den a rock 'n' roll makeover. A husband and wife team bring along a four-legged friend to help them achieve their ambition for their pet food business. And a toilet gadget inventor hopes to get investment by talking dirty to the Dragons.
  I even got tickets to Grand Designs Live at the Nec in Birmingham for October at a bargain price \o/.
Nice to have a early night in bed ๐Ÿ›

"Thank You, Come Again!"

Welcome to my Monday Feeling..
The inside of my house was looking like a new pin.
Stocked up on coffee...
Filled up the kettle.
Roll on for the visits of friends...
My first friend came round.
Yak,yak, yak.
Over 2 hours....
She did get a word in a few times...
I thanked her for coming...
"Thank you, come again" I said.
Another friend came round to find my house, as she is coming tomorrow for coffee and chat.
My final visitor came.
He brought me some lovely flowers ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’ฎ
Yak, yak,yak.
I said to him.
"You know where I am if you want a clack!"
"Thank you, Come Again"
Someone was picking up the television for repair...
My view of waiting...
One of my friends was enjoying a Webbs Experience....⛾
 I hopefully will be back on that experience in February 2018.
Now to put the mouth battery on charge for tomorrow.....
