Trying To Pump Them Up!

Your time is limited.So don't waste it living someone else's life 
- Steve Jobs
Welcome to my Sunday!
We got up early,
As hubby and one son are having their haircuts this morning.
But first...
Hug with brew.
While hubby went off his haircut.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back with a very short haircut.
He was making sure of wearing that Beany hat!
Now out to check the tyres on Sexy Beast. 
Both air pumps at Morrisons were out of action.
Topped up on the petrol front.
One the Traveller's horses had broken loose and was walking around the road island.
I went over to their camp and told them one of their horses were loose.
There were 5 cars waiting for air at Sainsbury's Petrol Station.
I went round to see my mum and dad.
Went back round to see the queue got down to one car.
Back home.
While I finished my Christmas themed facemasks, hubby went out for his weekly reduced shop at the Co-op.
Late lunch↓
With a dash of Hell's Kitchen season 13
As normal, I gets comfortable and falls asleep on the sofa for an hour!
Finally ready after a few hours in the oven!
More Hell's Kitchen...
With some Sleep Tea.

It matters not wheteher you win or lose; what matters is whether I win or lose - Darrin Weinberg
Sweaty Friday Feeling has arrived🎈
Hubby's last day at work before he has a holiday next week \o/

Out for our daily walk

The sun coming right up↗↗↗
 I gave hubby a big sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left for walk.
Quick look in the newspaper↓
Sir Alan  Parker CBE  was an English filmmaker. His early career, beginning in his late teens, was spent as a copywriter and director of television advertisements. After about ten years of filming adverts, many of which won awards for creativity, he began screenwriting and directing films.
By 1968, Parker had moved from copywriting to successfully directing numerous television advertisements. In 1970, he joined Alan Marshall to establish a company to make advertisements. That company eventually became one of Britain's best commercial production houses, winning nearly every major national and international award open to it. Among their award-winning adverts were the UK Cinzano vermouth advertisement (starring Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter), and a Heineken advert which used one hundred actors. Parker credited his years writing and directing adverts for his later success as a film director:
Looking back, I came from a generation of filmmakers who couldn't have really started anywhere but commercials, because we had no film industry in the United Kingdom at the time. People like Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Adrian Lyne, Hugh Hudson, and myself. So commercials proved to be incredibly important
 Parker was known for using a wide range of filmmaking styles and working in differing genres. He directed musicals, including Bugsy Malone (1976), Fame (1980), Pink Floyd – The Wall (1982), The Commitments (1991) and Evita (1996); true-story dramas, including Midnight Express (1978), Mississippi Burning (1988), Come See the Paradise (1990) and Angela's Ashes (1999); family dramas, including Shoot the Moon (1982), and horrors and thrillers including Angel Heart (1987) and The Life of David Gale (2003).
His films won nineteen BAFTA awards, ten Golden Globes and six Academy Awards.
He died aged 76 in 2020. 
 I watered the plants.
