At Least The Bird Is Singing This Time!

Life is a mirror.If you frown at it,it frowns back; if you smile it returns the greeting - William Makepeace Thackeray
Woo hoo 
It's back 🎈
Lots to get for the return back to school in 2 weeks time!
(Where has the time gone???)  
I had a lovely hug and cup of tea in bed↓
  Nice t-shirt to put on..↓
 With Spiderman Earrings.
Finally got the kids up!
Now to get out for a ride in Sexy Beast.
 It's getting warm↗↗↗
Time to get some school uniform↓

 I recognised one of the mothers in there, as a old school friend. Who got in touch in 2013, and asked how much would I charge to make an Aston Villa Birthday cake for her son.
(Like I made my son for his 8th Birthday)
 I said "£30."
She said her son didn't want a cake.
Found out later, her Aunt had done him a swimming cake for nothing.
Oh well.....
Back to buying the new uniform.
2 bits of uniform = £44
Now off to town to get more...
View from Car Park 4
 Visits the Uniform Bank,
Gets a large pe top and shorts for one of my sons.
We visit the food man on the market.
He is playing some good tunes...
 He then put another song,
Which my youngest remarked...
"Is this you know who?"
"It is!"
While my kids printed off some homework.
I caught up on the newspaper
 We got a new pair of size 12's school shoes.
They didn't have another pair for the other son...
The size 13 pe trainers wasn't very comfortable either.
I need a coffee now...↓
 Quick read and drink of coffee,
Before we leave↓
 It's getting warm now↗↗↗
 Early lunch↓
It was too late to do any painting!
Unloaded the dishwasher 
Loaded it back up.
I got some size 12 new shoes off Ebay.
I put a offer in for some size 13 pe trainers.
The man wants the auction to end and declined my two offers...
*I won another pair instead.*
(I will see the trainers stop at the price he put the trainers on, when the auction finishes)
The covers for two light switches came.
Now off to a happy place of work.
I didn't realise it was that hot when I got back home and was all nice and sweaty!
 Sucky time!
 Hubby came back from work early.
Nice hug and big 💋 for him.
While he went to do my dad's shopping.
The bird went in.....
Law and Order went on...
 Moved onto season 16 now
The bird started singing...
(Makes a change from me!) 
 Now off to do the final job of the week,
With some good music↓
 It was nice to take off my shoes...
I enjoyed one more episode of:
with some sleep tea...
Then off to bed for some snuggles and more....💋💋💋💋

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..
I had things to do...
 Tea and Toast↓
 I wrote and published yesterday's blog post.
I listened to the final hour of "Sounds of the 60s".
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↓
 Back home↓
 Late lunch↓
 We caught up on the week's episodes of:
Then hubby done the mowing of the lawn↓
 He cut back the bush....↑
After he returned from the tip run.
We enjoyed a sucky in the garden↓
 I sorted out the paint brushes and pots of paint for tomorrow painting session..
It was time for our evening meal↓
 Steak, potato wedges, and mushrooms. 
We caught up on some programmes we missed during the week↓
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 🛏

Yellow Stickers Galore!

Where has the sun gone?
Cloudy,overcast, and cold.
I went on a  food shopping trip with Larry.
 Loads of reduced food I bought.
I had a upgrade on my trainers...
(As I have holes appearing in the old ones)
 Now to break them in...
