If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Sunday 🎨
Warm hug to start Sunday with πŸ’—
Breakfast with brew.

Thermal vest goes on.
Now out to get some fresh air!
First we pop to see my parents.
What a surprise!!
 Prodigal son hasn't put nothing on their grave for Christmas!
Now onto B&Q for some bits to help with getting the bathroom done.
Nice.But no where to put it.
Nipped into Asda to get the newspaper.
Then home we go.
With a much needed coffee.
The stuff gets removed out of the bathroom,
When one son knocks over the paint....↓
Hubby gets as much as he can off the matt.
He then carries on painting the walls.
I have washing to do.
Washing machine and tumble drier on.
I start looking for the stuffing for tea.
I ask hubby:"If he buy any on Thursday?"
"Yes, no, they didn't have any!" He replied.
"Great, could have got some from Asda, this morning!" I replied.
Once everything is in the oven.
I get on writing yesterday's blog post.
Much needed cup of tea is needed first!
Hubby had finished most of the painting in the bathroom. Just some little bits need doing tomorrow.
Tea is served.
Some are songs are 50 this year.
Same as me turning that age this year...

Honest, Just Going For A Look!

If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing - Kingsley Amis
 Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’—
I woke up first, and brought up the brew.
"Wakey,Wakey,"I said to Sleeping Beauty.
Even opened the curtains to let the sun in!
A little bit of cuddle,
Then off downstairs he went to make the breakfast.
I meanwhile, opened all the curtains and windows to let the air in.
Now to leave the house for a short ride.
Pump up the tyres.
Take away coffee.
Now off to see my parents....
I had a chat with Mrs Messenger while she was tending her brother's grave.
I said goodbyes to my parents.
Dropped Sexy Beast back home and went to look around the garden centre....
I found some nice plants.
"I thought you were only looking,"Said hubby after I sent him to get a trolley
 for me to put the plants in.
Loaded them up in his car...
Once we got home.
We had lunch first before I stated to repot the plants.
I got through one bag of compost.
The Monkey Puzzle is sharp!
I have some more plants arriving tomorrow...
Let's hope I have enough pots and compost for them!
Put the Meat in the oven.
I filled out the form needed for permission for the loft to be done.
I will pop that into the Town Hall tomorrow.
Helped hubby sort out the Dining Room.
The people who are doing the loft wanted to do this Friday!
We have to empty the loft first!
(That's going to be fun!)
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
(If I don't it's going to back up again!)
Hubby dished up the tea.
I published my blog post.
Hubby went to sleep on the sofa.
I looked for a wooden garden arch while he was snoring.
Gave up looking....
Quick look into today's newspaper.
