Reaching For The Gardening Gloves....

Did you really pose for that calendar with nothing on?
"I had the radio on!" - Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to my Sunday Love 💓
Nice big hug...
Brew with breakfast.
Up I got,
Thermal vest goes on.
Lots of chores to do...
Coffee machine goes on....
As does the breadmaker..
Now to get out for some fresh air...
Nips to the local garden centre.
Reminds of someone....
Meets someone in there, I used to work with.
She left the company, 3 weeks ago.
They still haven't replaced me after 2 years!
We loaded the plants in the car.
Then off to Co-op for some reduced food.
One of my friends who I talk to on weekday afternoons was just driving off in his car.
I shouted several times, he finally stopped.
I asked him,"If there were any bargains to be had."
"I didn't see any,"He said.
"I will see you next week, and have a good Sunday!" I said to him.
We get a trolley and look in there.
Loads of reduced food!
Loaded up car, and off to see my parents.
I taking away the pot of plants, as the lavender has died over the winter.
Back home we go.
Unloads the car of food and plants.
The bread was done!
We had sandwiches outside in the sunshine.
Afterwards, he did his thing.
I had some quiet time in the garden to pot and tidy up the garden!
Not bad for 3 hours gardening!
Meanwhile hubby had been getting on with the Roast Chicken Tea.
We then caught up with the final episode of "Dragon's Den".
"Have I Got News For You!"
Final 2 episodes of the second season of "Fame"
Quick look in the newspaper.

Back To Reality!

There are two types of people: those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am,"and those who walk into a room and say,
"Ah, there you are." - Frederick Collins 
Welcome to my Sunday love Lie-in 💓
Made full use of that bed!
Now slip into the↓↓
Then for some....↓
Followed by↓↓
Now to use the lovely shower.....
That's better!
Nice views from our bedroom windows!
Now to go down for breakfast.
While we were waiting to seated, the woman who was well pissed last night, looked me up and down. I just returned her stare when we sat down!
Breakfast is served!
Where are the beans?????
Once I had finished my third cup of coffee.
(They used Full Fat Milk, as I was worried I had to fetch my pint of milk from my bedroom)
Back to the bedroom to pack and hear my Birthday Dedication on the radio...
As for this special Birthday of mine...
The Hawaii Five 0 Intro was playing in the back ground....
All packed up and ready to leave.
Hubby paid the bill.
We loaded up the car and went for a walk down to the pond.
Then back home we went.
Cake and balloons were ready for tomorrow.
Once we unpacked.
Back out in Sexy Beast. 
There was still queues for petrol, so I couldn't get to check my tyres.
On the way to the garden Centre,
My Birthday Request was read out again.
They played a great song...
(which is at the end of this blog post)
I got some plants for me, and some for my parent's grave.
Now for a look around...
After I got my plants, I nipped into Co-op to get some reduced veg for the soup this week.
Next onwards to see my parents.
I hope they like the daffodils I put on their grave.
Back home.
I gave my daffodils some water.
Soup maker was put on....
Coffee time.
Soup was ready!
Once the tumble drier had finished.
We sorted out the dry washing.
Not before the washing machine had to go back on again!
Hubby sorted out the tea for tonight.
I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
We had a nice Roast Chicken Dinner.
As normal I was late taking a photo of it!
My presents and cards are building up!
Everything was put back into Sexy Beast.
As it might be my Birthday, but it is also back on that Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
We caught up with 
"Dragon's Den"
Sleep Tea.
Back to our warm bed..
Already for the Big Birthday 🎈
Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow 🎡
