Welcome to my Thursday πŸ‘―

A cup of brew with added hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby fetched the newspaper for me.
He had a few more sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ for doing so.
Kids had some more wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ off me.
Coffee time!
While looking through the newspaper.

Then on to writing yesterday's blog post.
I got the chicken out of the freezer ready for tonight, made the stuffing, and roast potatoes.
I tidied up my boxes of craft items that are on the top of my wardrobe in our bedroom↓
 
I found some thermal lining which might have to be added to the 47 year old curtains by late mum made↓
I found some nice material I bought 8 years ago at the Craft Fair at the NEC↓
The story behind the nice material: While I had a limit of £70 to spend at the Craft Fair.
The person I went with spent over £350 on craft items.
(I needed £12 to get out of the car park)
Dirty Harry once said:
"A Man's got to know his limitations"
I found a box to put more material in↓
 I ordered a pattern to make some tote bags.
The elastic for the waist bands for the skirts I ordered last week has failed to arrive.
They was suppose to arrive Tuesday.
I got in contact with the seller. 
They gave me a fake tracking number.
I have informed Ebay about it.
Lunch time 
I tried to find out where I put some sewing patterns.(It was August 2018, when I moved the Dining room around)Couldn't find them anywhere...
Then my knee started to hurt...grrrrr
Time for more season 4 of:
Tea at 3.
If I can return back to work next week.
I need something spotty to wear next Friday as it's Children in Need day.
as well as Friday 13th :(
I ordered some spotty fabric,
I will try and make a spotty skirt...
(If my elastic comes before then!)
Hubby comes home and receives some wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Dish up the roast chicken dinner.
No one beside me like English Mustard...
We carry on with season 4 of Hell's Kitchen up to the Final.
I was going to make spotty apron for next week. I bidded on an apron pattern on Ebay.
Then I found another pattern on another website. Any other time, I get outbidded on Ebay.Because I WANTED to be outbid, it didn't happen!
I won the item.....
Now to move onto Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen.
Sleep tea time.

Really Hot Stuff!

I have always felt that a politician is to be judged by the animosities he excites amond his opponents - Sir Winston Churchill
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
I had a really bad night with a very high temperature....
 Brew and Hug↑
Breakfast.
Dressed.
 Of all the places to spin a web, it has to spin one right by the front door↑
Out for daily walk↓
 Back after 20 minutes↓
 I gave hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
Left out the πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ for my children, as they ducked out the house.
Then it happened.
My temperature again went through the roof.
I had to have a ice lolly to try and get the temperature down.
I went on to the Government website for signs of Covid.
High Temperature is one of the signs.
(I thought the menopause was kicking in last night)
Tried to find the nearest testing site.
Leicester (51 miles away)
I ordered 2 tests, one for me and one for hubby first.
I phoned hubby to tell him,
I might have signs of Covid-19.
He told his boss...
(Blood drained from his face)
He was given a computer and told to work from home until the results come back.
So he was coming home.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
Quick read of today's newspaper↓

Fingers crossed the test says negative.
I had some nice material come through the post↓
 And much needed↓
 Light lunch↓
 My temperature was still going up↗↗↗
Tried to have a power nap to lower it down.
At least the bathroom scales and earplugs arrived↓
 I used the nice different colour pasta, we bought from Lidl's last week in a Pasta Bake which included garlic, ginger, onion, mushrooms and spinach↓
 Back on the binge watch of:
with some Sleep Tea↓
 Still feeling so warm......
Hopefull the tests will turn up tomorrow or Friday and we can see if we have got it or not!
Happy Sweaty Hump!

Trying To Escape It!

"Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo" - HG Wells.
Welcome to my weekend🎈
Snoregate again...
Up, up, I rose and went downstairs↓
 I took out my earplugs, and I could still hear the loud snores coming from our bedroom.
I listened to the "Sounds of the 60s" while catching up with yesterday's blog.
Sleeping Beauty arises and comes downstairs.
He orders an Anti-Snore pillow from Argos.
I asked him "If he bought two?"
"Why two?"He asked.
"One to sleep on, and the other one on top of your face!"
He went to make breakfast after that crack!
More lovely material arrived↓
 First coffee of the day↓
Drops off younger son to help with the uniform bank.
Collects my neighbour's shopping list.
Off to drop of other son to do his boxing lesson↓
 Drops him off.
Nice new face mask for me to wear today↓
 Hubby goes off to fetch his snore pillow↓
 While hubby was filling his car up.
I noticed a ex-worker who I call the Anti-Depressant! Washing his car.
To finish our friendship once and for all, he said the following to me while I was doing my first Lollipop job:
"They don't need you here, they have traffic lights.It should be a voluntary position."
After that, I just ignored him with a passion↓
  Next stop was to do my neighbour's shopping at Lidl↓
Once we had finished, we saw Anti-Depressant go past in his car again.
Picks son up from boxing.
Drops shopping around to my neighbour.
Quick lunch.
Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓

 Back out to pick up younger son↓
 Car Park 4 was still closed.
Car Park 7 was losing some of its parking spaces due to repainting↓

 Made sure we got a ticket on display↑
 I chatted to a friend outside the church.
He had a lovely brown suntan from sitting in the sun. He was telling me about some of the shops that are moving about in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.
The Uniform Bank has finished early.
Youngest son got himself some clothes for the new school year.
On the way out I got talking to a friend of my arsehole brother.
He blames the girlfriend for the money grabbing situation.I just said she doesn't help the situation that he is a big arsehole trying to screw me over!
Gets home.
Watches the afternoon session of the World Championship snooker.
Then off to do our shopping↓
They knocked down the last box of sewing threads....↓
 In the trolley they go.
Gets back to unload the shopping.
