Still Missing My Mum!

I was the only director who ever made two pictures with Marilyn Monroe.Forget the Oscar, I deserve the Purple Heart - Billy Wilder
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’“
It's the 9th Anniversary of my late mum passing away :'(
We will be going up later to give her some flowers.
But first hug,
Brew with breakfast.
Where has the sun gone?
It's seems younger brother has been up again.
All the flowers were put back on the grave.
At least he didn't grave rob like he did on Mother's Day.
Nothing off the other Prodical brother! 
I hope younger brother has got £850 in 8 years time to pay for the plaque on the bench, or they will him the plaque back to him!
We noticed 3 new neighbours have been added around my parents's grave.
One poor wooden cross had fallen apart and had no flowers, nothing.
I put the cross back together.
Someone had thrown a lot of stuff in the bin for a grave.
Recycled it and put it on Sandra's grave instead.
Said goodbye to my mum and dad and headed home.
Younger son put my vegetable rack together!
While I caught up with blog posts.
Hubby did the mowing....
We had a sandwich for lunch.
As I was catching up with the blog.
He went over to his dad's house to add more things he bought for it.
I was doing the tea while he was out.
When he came back, he had a sloppy wet one.
Looked in today's newspaper.

Easter Sunday 
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ₯šπŸ€πŸ₯
Hug with brew...
Gets the kids up as they are delivering leaflets this morning with Joe.
The sun is out \o/
Dropped kids off.
Then onto see my parents.
None of my brothers have added anything to their grave...
(Nothing for Mother's Day off them!)
We go for a walk around the graves...
Love the pudding inscription↑↑↑↑↑
We carried on over to see my mate Dave's grave.
His wife was there, and we had a good yak in the sun for 45 minutes.
Even the husband of Mrs P was is buried 2 graves up from my parents appeared for a yak!
Then I said our goodbyes and carried on walking around the graves.
We got up the top of the hill and look down..↓↓↓
I said goodbye to my parents.
Then we headed home.
Light lunch time.
While I was writing my blog, hubby mowed the lawn.
The lawn looks well nice :)
Now to get the tea on...
Chicken goes in the oven....
Finishes writing yesterday's blog.
After the chicken had been in for over 3 hours in the oven, time to dish it up!
Time to watch the first episode of the first season  of:

Dave Hill  is an English musician, who is the lead guitarist, backing vocalist and the sole continuous member in the English band Slade. Hill is known for his flamboyant stage clothes and hairstyle. 
He is 75 years old 🎈

Maurice  Cole , better known as Kenny Everett, was a British comedian, radio disc jockey and television presenter. After spells on pirate radio and Radio Luxembourg in the mid-1960s, he was one of the first DJs to join BBC radio's newly-created BBC Radio 1 in 1967. It was here he developed his trademark voices and surreal characters which he later adapted for television. 
He sadly died on this day in 1995 aged 50 
Sleep tea time↓

You Got What It Takes....

It may be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others. - Anon
Welcome to the weekend 🎈
I let hubby have his lie-in..

Hubby wakes.
Nice cup of coffee I take upstairs to get dressed and wake up the kids..
 It didn't go down too well they had to get up before 9am!
Once up and changed.
Time to get some fresh air↓
 We parked on the college car park like yesterday.
 Now off to the School Uniform Bank
 I met up with so many friends to have a yak with.....
I had a good yak session for a good hour and half.
Son was trying on new shoes,
Which I will be buying next week..
 Even when we were walking back to the car, I bumped into another friend for a catch up!
 Dark clouds are coming..
Now to do a few days shopping↓
 Birthday card for my friend's son↓
 While hubby and son went to fetch some gerbil bedding for our gerbils, 
I stopped in car,
As I knew too well,
I would be bringing another pet home with me↓

Interior Design Masters
Ten aspiring interior designers on the cusp of turning professional are taking part in the biggest design challenge of their lives. Arriving at a design studio in east London, they nervously meet each other for the first time, before being welcomed by series presenter Fearne Cotton.
Dragons’ Den
 back for its seventeenth series, and a there is a new fire breather in town. Crafting queen Sara Davies, the youngest ever Dragon, joins titans of industry Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvani in a den that is hotter than ever. 
In this fierce first episode, a spiced rum entrepreneur gets the party started by giving the den a rock 'n' roll makeover. A husband and wife team bring along a four-legged friend to help them achieve their ambition for their pet food business. And a toilet gadget inventor hopes to get investment by talking dirty to the Dragons.
  I even got tickets to Grand Designs Live at the Nec in Birmingham for October at a bargain price \o/.
Nice to have a early night in bed πŸ›
