Using My Green Fingers!

People will believe anything if you whisper it - Karl Kraus
Bank Holiday Monday
Welcome to my Monday Fun 🎈
I slept on the sofa to calm down after last night's fun.
I got up a bit earlier than I normally do...
The washing machine went on twice.
Unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back up.
Hubby came downstairs and gave me a big hug.
He made the breakfast.
I took a picture of the sunrise.
Breakfast with Brew.
On goes the Thermal vest.
Out for a short ride in Sexy Beast.
Checked the Tyre Pressures.
It was so quiet on the roads.
Changes cars.
First we try B&Q for some grass turf.
No luck there.
Next we try Homebase.
None in there either.
We picked up some reduced Lavender plants.
Next to B3.
Time for a coffee and nibble.
Once we finished, we looked outside, and found the turf.
Found something else interesting...
Paid for the turf.
Put it in the car and off to nip into Lidl's.
Got some bits and back home we went.
We emptied the car of the plants, compost, and turf.
I repotted the Leeks.
Bedded in the Lavender plants.
Hubby stimmed around the edge of the garden.
Looks well nice now!
Watered all the plants.
Liquid lunch time!
Power nap time.
Woke up just in time for 
Tea at 3. 
We put the tea on.
I try and catch up with the blog.
I am still behind with 8 days blog posts.
Tea is served!
Looked into today's newspaper:
The lights hubby put up earlier was starting to come on.
I will take a better picture, when it's dark tomorrow.
I texted older son, after that swearing incident last night and no saying sorry, he should move out.
My younger son tried to chip in, and he was shot down, as he has been getting his friend to stay over without asking too, and his bedroom is looking terrible as well!
The older son seems to think I am doing his washing!
Nope, I just want the key back!
Heardle Time. 
Heardle 50s:
Heardle 60s:
My results:
Sleep Tea Time.
We watched the last frame of the World Snooker Championship.
Well done to Luca Brecel!
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow 🎡

Writing, Spinning, & Need Of A Strong Coffee!

Everything takes longer than it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Sexy Beast looks like a need a scrape.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The sun might be coming up.
It's still freezing!
On goes 2 winter hats and the big big gloves.
I put on my lights.
Now to see how many tanks I can spot this morning...
Only saw two, is better than what I normally see...
Nice the normal white car on the otherside doesn't stop for me, she might be running out of luck soon!
Still had to do a few more BOINGs!
At least I finished in one piece!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Chops some veggies and put on the soup maker.
Coffee time.
While I had some spare time.
Time to reply to the American Prison Pen Pal who sent me 2 letters last week.
I wrote him 6 pages.
That should keep him happy :)
The soup was ready to dish up.
I had a Labour leaflet pushed through the door.
Didn't knock the door.
Only hear the Councillors when they want to be re-electioned! 
Dished up my soup.
Chicken,Leak,and Parsnip.
My new arier arrived.
I got in touch with Dunelm for my refund.
It is now been SIX  weeks since I put the order in. Waiting 3 weeks, and then cancelled it.
Now the excuses pile up:
1: The Manager at my local store hasn't received my order to give me a refund.
2: The IT department are working on it to find my order.
3: Today's excuse, is the only member of their IT team is now on ANNUAL LEAVE and I have to wait for them to come back!
I got sick of this utter crap and wrote a email to their CEO. If I don't hear nothing from him, I will go further up the food chain! 
Now off to do my afternoon shift.
Next door's carers had to move their car again.
On goes one winter hat and lightweight gloves.
I got talking to my friend who has had his hand op the other week. He had come back from Stratford upon Avon on the bus and dropped his earing aid. He was just on the way to the bus stop when I got chatting.
I told his wife, "Since I have been wearing a facemask, I can't wear earrings, as they don't stop long in my ear lobes!"
Puts on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
The sun kept appearing from behind the clouds.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to have some fun 🍭
Oh dear, had 3 straight cars go under my stick.
Some cars on the underside had to stop very quick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now to get changed into the pink lyrca!
I watched the last of The Irishman while doing my spinning.
Then onto the abs machine...
(I'm going to hurt tomorrow!)
Cools down.
Now to make the Meat Free Stir Fry.
Out comes the Breadmaker.
I can't find my lovely Breadmaking book.
So from memory in it all goes...
On for 4 hours!
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons, ) was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums around the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He died on this day in 1985 aged 54. 
"Reach Out I'll Be There' by The Four Tops, released by Tamla Motown in 1966.
USA No.1 on this day in 1976: 
Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
'Wuthering Heights' by Kate Bush, released by EMI in 1978.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
The bread came out alright!
Found my good Bread Maker book as well.
Hubby's team came back from 2-0 down to 2-2.
Even though Hubby lost his match on the pink.
I climbed into that warm bed...and fell off to sleep like a log!
