Welcome to my Sunday🎈
I woke up too early for Sunday!
 Time for tea and nibble↓
  I had a hot shower.
Followed by breakfast.
Hubby appeared from his warm pit.
Just after 9am, my Birthday request was read out on the radio for next Saturday🎈🎈🎈🎈 
Washing machine and tumble drier were put on.
Only ran out of vinyl wrap for the sideboard my late mum gave me....
It might end up looking like this↓
(I should be so lucky!)
Off to do some shopping↓

 Had to get a few bits from Morrisons↓
 Coffee and nibble↓
 Going to look into somewhere good↓
 Plenty of garlic↑

The man behind the till couldn't believe I was English buying foreign food from Poland!
"We have meats from Poland,Hungary, Russia, & Romania, fresh in on Tuesday & Thursday!"
"I will be back!" I replied.
We got home to unpack our bits and pieces↓

You Are So Lucky!

It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know what you would lie if you were in his place - H L Mencken
Welcome to my Monday🎈
I'm on a small wobbly work wheel this week 🎑
  I had to sleep on the sofa last night to escape the better half's loud snoring...
I heard it even though I had ear plugs..
(This will teach me not to fall asleep while watching Top Gear!!) 
After an uncomfortable night on the sofa, I went upstairs to have a much needed hug and cup of tea.
 I gave hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left the house...
I went back to sleep in that lovely king size bed πŸ›
After a couple of hours, it was time for a coffee↓
 Gathered up the kids,
We left the house↓
  Filled up Sexy Beast.
Nipped into Morrisons to get some bits.
I saw my friend, and asked "How's her mum was?"
"She died in August last year," came the answer back.
"I'm sorry to hear, my dad passed away on February 5th, bringing out the vultures!" I replied.
She came back to me and said:
"You are so lucky!" 
"Why am I lucky, because I lost my dad?" I asked.
"My Stepdad sold the house a week before my mum died and my mum's will was void.My Step-dad walked away with half an million pound and my sister and I had nothing. He still hadn't got the grave stone enscribed!"
She walked off without hearing my answer. 
Now to burn off some Monday Blues to nip off to a great Charity Shop.
Someone was walking out with a gold framed mirror and picnic basket when we went past it.
 Someone was glad to see me↑
 They so remind of a certain song I love↑↓
 Gets some lovely stuff↓
 Light lunch↓
 Had a quick look in the newspaper↓

Sorting Out The Hoarding Habit!

After our fun from yesterday, Free coffee etc,
Note to self:
Play with gear stick in the early hours
When the kids have gone to bed..
Time to tidy inside the house for once
Our kids were tidying the youngest son's bedroom.
I did offer to throw in a grenade to clear the mess...
Hubby and I sorted out the hoard under and around the computer table..
Oh dear, I have got a serious hoarding problem......
Where to hide it all?
Sideboard is looking a bit fuller now...
