Mellow Yellow

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new Landscapes,but in having new eyes - Marcel Proust
Welcome to my Thursday....
I am hopefully on the painting wheel 🎡 later.
But first the first hug and cup of tea of the day...
 I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
Now the fun to get up our kids before 10am! 
 As one is delivering more newspapers, while the other son is painting my dad's fences!
I drop off both sons.
I find out my dad has no paint...
Off to another Man's cave...
 The fence paint was knocked down to £10 from £12. Plus 2 fence brushes.
Grand total £32!
I left one son painting and the other son delivering his newspapers.
By the time I got home, the morning had vanished.
I had a quick lunch↓
 Got to get the painting down the stairwell done↓
 Then off to a happy place of work

After I put the evening meal to cook,
I caught up on some more:
 Now to serve up Meatballs!
This meal only costed me £5 to make :)
I caught up with episode 2 of:
Interior Design Masters
After a tough first week transforming show homes, with nine designers left, they return to Michelle's design studio to find out about their next challenge. 
Michelle tells them that she is sending them to a hotel in Bournemouth, where they each have a bedroom to design in their own particular signature style. She wants to see their own unique styles coming through and find out who they really are as designers. But there is a twist - this hotel isn't any standard seaside hotel, it is called Hotel Chocolate, and has a strong chocolate theme to delight their guests
I think the wrong one went home!
Then off to final job of the day..
Once back home,
Night clothes on,
A little bit of news,
Sleep tea,
Warm rub down......

The Vultures Are Circling...

Children learn more from what you are than what you teach - W.E.B Dubois
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐪
A nice tea in bed with a warm hug↓
I gave hubby a nice wet 💋 before he left the house.
I have things to do this morning...
Out in the fresh air..↓
 It's getting warmer↓
  New sunglasses on↓

I got the newspaper,
Filled up Sexy Beast .
Next stop another visit to the Man's Cave↓
  I said to the Sale's Assistant who served me:
"I went to school with  your mum!".
(she blushed,and went to get my order)
When she came back, 
I said,"I stalk your mum on FB."
She said,"My mum is on holiday."
I replied, "A nice break away from this town does wonders for the soul!" 
My nice items↓
 Quick look at the newspaper before I get out of Sexy Beast. 
 The temperature is going up↗↗
I sorted out the back garden.
All the cabbages had been ate by caterpillers...
The remaining cabbages were put in the composter.
The washing machine went on 3 times.
Making full use of the sunshine.
All the washing went on the line.
Just keeping a eye on the weather.
I picked some blackberries out in the front garden, and picked the rhubarb that was growing in the back garden.
 Hopefully I will have a second batch of rhubarb later↓
 Early lunch↓
 I had some nice post↓
 After I came back from work,
The Rhubarb,Blackberry, Lemon & Ginger pie was put in the oven.
After our main meal,
It wa ready to eat↓
 After I watched Law and Order,
Off to work I go with some great music↓
I had a phone call from my younger brother.
Moaning on the keepsafe being broken by my Dad's carers for the second time. He wanted me and the prodical brother to pay towards another one!
I laughed.
My response was:
"He, and the prodical brother earn loads more money than me, when I earn the same as them , then I will put money in the pot."
He didn't like that reply.
Further on with the conversation,
"My younger brother is having my dad's Rover SD1 car that is in the garage, while prodical brother had now been given my dad's BMW!!!"
Feels like the vultures are circling... 
I was glad to get home!
Prodical brother was stopping over at my dads for the night, so we didn't need to go over!
After I had my sleep tea...
It was nice to enjoy Hump Day!
