Only Got A Tiny One!

If you are bored with your present enemies and want to make some new ones, tell two of your women friends that they look alike - Mignon McLaughlin 
Welcome to my Sunday! 🚋
We had a bit of lie-in after last night's fun...
Warm hug with brew followed.
I am in need of a caffeine boost!
Now out for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
First to check the tyres pressures...
Then to put the pinks back on...
Dropped off two more bags of clothes in the clothes bank at Sainsburys.
Then to say hello to mum and dad.
Back home to pick up the shopping list for Lidl.
There was a good book for sale in there.
Hubby said hi to the sales assistant on the till as he hasn't seen him in a while.
It turns out, the sales assistant was recovering from a car accident for the last 5 months.
We nipped into Home Bargains.
Then onto the small branch of Waitrose.
There was loads of reduced food.
I only got what I needed.
The Sales Assistant asked:
 "Why I was buying a copy of the weekend's I newspaper?"
"Because I didn't buy it yesterday."
He rolled his eyes.
Because I spent over £10 I could get a free newspaper, they had sold out the Sunday Times, so I had another newspaper.
Loaded up the shopping into the car and off home we went.
Once the shopping was put away.
We caught up on the jobs that needed doing.
I put the evening tea in the oven to cook.
Hubby went to vacuum and get his car cleaned.
(It might move a bit quicker now!)
Tea is ready!
Now to catch up with 3 newspapers I bought today!

We watched 2 episodes of:
I might have a tiny hoard,
 but at least I don't have to climb over something to get out of the front door!
We have 4 episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991 to catch up with....
I will find time tomorrow to watch them....
(It won't take too long....)
Off to bed a lot earlier than last night...
As someone is back on their Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow and it's not me! 🎡

Little Brown Owl

 "You, a writer? Listen, dear, you couldn't write 'fuck' on a dusty Venetian blind." - Coral Browne
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew to start Hump Day!
Gets the kids up for school.
Gives hubby a nice wet one 💋 before he goes to work.
The kids also have wet 💋💋 before they go to school.
I go outside to feed the birds and change the water in their water bath.
Time for my mate Henry to come out for a play!
Also mop and bucket came out.
Much needed coffee time!
My vitamins arrived \o/
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
I ordered some nice things from the Trouva website. As normal the delivery firm  can't find my house!
So every item has now got to be directed to another their pick up point. 
Waiting for the comments from the pick up point why I haven't picked them up earlier!!
The voting papers for the council elections was delivered as well.
I have to take my own pen/pencil and wear a facemask to vote.
Finished my blogpost.
Early lunch time is needed!
Goes outside for a walk up and down the path.
A book I ordered arrived \o/
I have been collecting the Prima Makes magazines.
Really good magazines.
I have issues, 1,2,3,5, and 19 arriving soon.
Tea at 3. 
Once the kids came home, they were going to deliver some leaflets for our great friend Joe.
Dropped them off.
I popped into my Doctor Surgery and there was one brave soul in there, not wearing his facemask. He forgot, what he replied when he got asked. I left very quickly wearing my facemask!
Back home.
I get the tea on the go.
Hubby comes home,
I give him a wet sloppy 💋.
He gives me one back 💋.
He also gives me the newspaper!

Where To Put It All?

Today was a waiting game...
My remaining items from my rented garage was being delivered...
So while I waited in....
Out came Henry for a little play.
Polished all the pictures,
Washing machine went on,
Writing  steamy chapters of my book..
 My items arrived.
It filled up the shed,
 (the door went back on!)
Someone who saw my stuff being unloaded,
and said "What a lot of stuff I had!"
I laughed, and responded.
 "I'm trying to cut down....on hoarding."
There are just some things you can't throw out.....
