Bang, Crash, The Lid Comes Off!

 That money talks, I'll not deny: I heard it once, it said, "Goodbye." - Richard Armour
Welcome to my Saturday 💪
I had a hot flush at 4.30am....
I couldn't cool down.....
Downstairs I went for a bit under the fan with a cup of tea!
I fell asleep for an hour...
Woke up and made a brew....
Took them upstairs....
Woke up Sleeping Beauty before the alarm went off...
We listened to Sounds of the 60s...
Got one son up for his job.
Hubby waited for the Satellite repair man to come while I dropped off son at work.
I have a coffee and chat at my son's work.
Then off to Sainsbury's to drop off some shoes at the shoe bank.
Nipped into Sainsburys while I was there.
I gets back home shortly after.
No sign of the Satellite repair man, it had gone past 10am!

On his way, was his response when asked.
We had a sneaky bacon sandwich while waiting.
I went back to bed half an hour later to catch up on the sleep I missed this morning.
When I woke, the tree outside my son's bedroom window was just losing a large branch!
The Satellite Repair man, fixed the cable  that led from the sky box to the sky dish, however the branch belonging to the tree was blocking the signal.
He did offer to move the dish to the chimney for £150.
The tree losing one branch was the cheaper option.
The branch was added to the pile that was going down the Household tip tomorrow!
Light lunch.
We watched another episode of Hotel Inspector.
Then it was out for a little ride to get some bits..from...
Got some vanish for the garden bench.
Glue to glue back a horn back on the bull...
Next stop was a visit to our local Shopping Centre.
Parked in the Car Park.
Got some bits from Wilkinson's.
(Nice wind chime for the garden)
You still have to wear facemasks.
Some wasn't, glad I was.
I won some nibbles off a website "Too Good To Go."
I picked up the nibbles from Cafe Nero.
Back home.
When we put the bags on the kitchen table.
Hubby slammed the bag from Homebase on the floor....
Oh dear, I looked in the bag, the lid of the vanish came off and the whole bag contained white vanish......
Unpacked the bag from Cafe Nero.
Now to put the tea in the oven for later on.
I actually won a lucky bag from Waitrose for £5.
(Will collect that later)
Tea is served.
Later on, to collect my Waitrose order.
Brings my lucky bag back.
Our kids and I enjoyed Sushi for the first time.
Quick read of the newspaper.
 After watching 2 more episodes of "Hotel Inspector", it was off to a nice inviting bed!

New Apples & Pears!

 Don't forget to tell everyone it's a secret - Gerald Lieberman
Welcome to a interesting Thursday 🌺
Nice warm hug with brew.
Wakes up one son for school.
I gave out plenty of wet sloppy 💋💋
Out I go!
On goes the summer coat!
Now for the fun to start 🎈
Plenty of cars stopping for me.
One woman in a yellow Nissan, thought about stopping, stopped, then carried on....
Plenty of waves people were giving me.
I was getting warm under the collar!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Coffee time.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
I had a satellite repair man to come round to look at our satellite dish.
There could be 3 things the problem.
He gave me 3 prices and went away.
The carpet fitter arrived at 1pm.
I gave him a much needed coffee before he started.
I told my son to offer the carpet fitter a drink while I was out!
I left early to get some petrol after I had my lunch.
I'm glad I bought a bottle of water with me!
Summer coat goes back on.
Now for more fun to be had 🎈
I was stood in the middle of the road, when I heard a car speeding up the road behind me.
He soon had to stop when he saw me.
I turned round to cross back over the road, and pointed to the word "STOP" on my lollypop stick.
The man in the black 65 reg BMW just looked at me!
Had some more car drivers go under my lollypop stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
Chattered with my friend for 20 minutes after I finished. 
Back home, and the carpet fitter is still fitting the carpet up the stairs. 
I made the carpet fitter another drink as my kids didn't.
Once the carpet fitter had finished, I thanked him for doing a very good job.
Very pleased :)
We had some oddments of carpet,
Which we use as rugs at a later date.
Tidied the house.
Even one of the kids got out Henry to hoover the new carpet.
Now to celebrate with Pork Balls!
Then to water all the plants out in the front garden and the beans in the back garden.
The stuff to go to the tip is getting a bit bigger.
Hubby booked the Satellite repair man is came earlier is coming out on Saturday morning.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
 Tab Hunter (born Arthur Andrew Kelm; later Gelien) was an American actor, singer, film producer, and author. Known for his blond, clean-cut good looks, Hunter appeared in more than 40 films and was a Hollywood heartthrob of the 1950s and 1960s. Hunter's film credits include Battle Cry (1955), The Girl He Left Behind (1956), Gunman's Walk (1958), and Damn Yankees (1958). Hunter also had a music career in the late 1950s; in 1957, he released a number one hit single "Young Love". Hunter's 2005 autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star, was a New York Times bestseller.
He died on this day aged 86 in 2018.
At least the Friday Feeling 🎈 is back tomorrow.
