Foot Stamping!

 There are two kinds of light - the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures - James Thurber
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’ͺ
Nice big hug with a strong brew to start the day!
I gets the kids up ready.
I gives hubby a big sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
The kids soon follow him, both have wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ off me.
I enjoy some fresh air...
Followed by a much needed cup of coffee!
The replacement border arrived \o/
One job to be finished this weekend!
I get on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Once I finished that.
Unloads and loads up dishwasher and puts it back on!
Goes and feeds the birds and changes their water in the bird bath.
Our little Robin that visits, was soon having a bath in it!
The female Black Bird that visits every day was enjoying the bread I put out.
Early lunch!
My craft magazines arrived \o/
I started to read the one with pom pom wreath on the front.
Gets to page to how to do it, and 3 pages were ripped out!
Goes for a walk down the path to get rid of that feeling of frustration!
Tea at 3.
My son then tried to practice for his GCSE food assessment.
3 tries of  making pastry failed.
3 foot stamps, he threw his chief jacket in the hallway and went upstairs to his bedroom.
No more plain flour or butter left.
Off to Asda to get some more!
(I make sure I wear my mask and social distance while I am in there!)
Some people had their masks under their chins, some were not covering their noses.
10 mins and we were out of there and back home.
My story wasn't read out on the Confessions.
Fingers crossed it will soon.
My son  didn't want to try again.
He tidied up the kitchen and put on the dish washer.
Once tea was ate.
Then we all sat around to catch up with Wednesday's episode of Judge Rinder.
Son got all this things ready for tomorrow.
I have a nice hot shower.
Hubby comes back after visiting his dad.
Nice big πŸ’‹ for him.
I have the newspaper in return.
