Keep That Love Coming!

On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key - Scott Adams.
It was nice to have a lie-in with added nibble πŸ’‹
My younger brother was moaning we didn't go round to my dad's BEFORE 10am!
(You can't rush love nibble, I say!) 
At least it wasn't raining..↓
 Warm hug with first cup of tea↓
 We got up and left the house↓
 We popped into see my dad.
It is truely heartbreaking to see him the way he is.
(Hubby was getting all upset.)
We made him comfortable the best we could.
I dropped a Birthday card around to a good friend who daughter has a Birthday this weekπŸŽ‚
On to do our food shopping↓
We popped into my dad's to give him the newspaper.
He is looking terrible.
(I started to get upset!)
It won't be long now.....:'(
We nipped into Waitrose↓
We got some more reduced food.
Someone with a posh accent was talking to me, about a reduced chickpea salad pot we both picked up from the reduced stand!
We got back home to unload the shopping.
More washing and drying of the clothes,
Before we went back out to do the tyres on Sexy Beast...↓

Turning A Nice Green!!

He's as slippery as an eel that's been rubbed all over with axle - grease - P.G Wodehouse
Welcome to my chilled Sunday🎈
I had a little bit lie-in...
Then it's tea and hug time!
 Now to leave the house↓
 Off to give Sexy Beast a shower!
 We went round to see my dad.
Oh dear, he hasn't got too long on this planet.
My hubby tried to put some gel on his knee, only he hasn't got no knee, he has got that thin!
I gets back.
Sexy Beast is looking well nice!
 A little visit out↓
 Cake and coffee↓
 Nice price↓
 Back home.
I did some housework..
Light lunch↓
 My right foot was hurting.
While I was resting my foot up,
catching up on this week's newspapers.
Hubby went food shopping.
My younger brother phoned up..
Then it started...
He wanted to clear everything from the first floor of my dad's house even though my dad is still alive!
I said "He was being disrespectful to my dad.As he hasn't gone yet!"
I told him,"I don't want him to do it, if he goes against me, I will cut him like I have cut off my other brother...!"
"I'm not making a profit out of it!" He squealed at me.
He tried to out shout me, and failed.
I was slowly turning green,as my anger level was going up ↗↗↗↗
In the end, I put the phone down on him.
When hubby came back, I told him of the event of me turning green! 
After putting the shopping away.
My younger brother phoned my hubby.
He said, " I have got the wrong end of the stick, just de-cluttering the first floor, not stripping out of all of the stuff...."
(He is back pedalling from last Wednesday's visit.)
My younger brother didn't tell me that my other brother was visiting my dad at the same time as he phoned my hubby.
Who's pulling whose strings????
I got on with the evening meal.
Using the nice casserole dish I bought↓ 
Another half an hour, my younger brother phoned my hubby again.
"Have you talked to my sister?" He asked.
"Can I come over tonight to talk to her?" He asked.
Hubby just told him to leave it for now.
Then he told my younger brother↓
"Make the most of the time your dad is here!"
Tea is ready↓
 Sausage and Dumplings!
 Younger brother keeps phoning my hubby!
My new plant I bought this morning↓
  We caught up on some telly programmes.
