Camping Bed Anyone?

When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always of, he always declaires that it is his duty - George Bernard Shaw
Welcome to my cloudy,wet Thursday.
After being on the sofa since↓
  I went back upstairs to bed,
4 hours later...
Brew and hug time↓
 I had breakfast.
I needed to go back to sleep.
(Which I did)
Hubby went and got the newspaper.
Then off to work he went
(To the living room).
I rose later on.....
Much needed coffee...↓
 Quick look into the newspaper↓

 The rain was pouring down.
I breathed in some fresh air.
Back on to the blog.....
Light lunch time↓
Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓↓↓
 Finished writing the blog.
That was published.
Just in time for 
Tea at 3 
Sorted out all my material to play with the big monster tomorrow↓
 Once hubby finished work
&
The tea was put in the oven...
Time for more...
 Chicken and wedges for tea↓
 It was still raining when I went to work.
Nice big tune to start work with↓
 It had thankfully stopped raining when I got back.
Snuck one more episode in....
With some sleep tea↓
 We have 244 episodes to watch before we finish the whole boxset!
Fingers crossed I don't end up sleeping on the sofa later.....
(I might get a fold up camping bed, as the sofa doesn't make for sleeping on for a long time,in for the long haul!)
At least it's Friday tomorrow🍿

Visiting Old Friends!

“Oh my sweet Saturday,
I have been waiting for you for six long days”
Charmaine J Forde 

At last we reach Saturday!
I missed "The Sounds of the 60s"
We had tea in bed.  
 The sunshine is out at last.
 We visit B&M bargains to get some bits.
I price up the tins of paint.
 I pop over to see some late friends↓

 
 He wasn't very old when he passed away↓
 I actually visited this grave for the first time, as I keep seeing it when I go pass after visiting my mum's grave↓
 I gave my mum some more flowers↓
 Blue skies \o/
 Looking at more paint↓
 It's getting warm!
 We visit Dunelm↓
 
 
 
 My favourite drink!
(I have been tee-total for nearly 6 years!)
My table is looking nice :)
 The bed is covered in so much,
We ran out of time to get it off...
Our bed for tonight is:
Must not forget the earplugs!

Out Goes the Old......

Coming home is one of the most beautiful things - Andre Rieu 
Welcome to my Thursday.
I'm still upgrading some bits of my house.
Some bits I have had for over 12 years and showing their age...
I went over to my brother's storage barn.
 
 Pity it's not a real car!
You play and I sing.
I bought off him a nearly new settee,
blue wicker chair, and a smaller kitchen table.
He will drop them round later, and take the old ones away too.
 More scaffolding goes up↑↑↑
I then start cleaning up the living room.
Once I come back from work,
I enjoy an ice cream in the garden.
  Hubby goes and does my dad's shopping.
I move out the old settee, and tv cabinet↓↓↓
 
 Lets hope I can fit the new sofa through the front door and fill the empty space in my Living room!
Oh dear the sofa won't fit through the front door! FFS!
Hubby comes back and puts it on its side...
It's just about gets the front door and living room!
It can fit 3 people on!
It was about midnight when my brother returned with the items I bought off Ebay.
TV Cabinet
Matching sideboard
More upgrading to be done!
&
Friday Feeling tomorrow 🍾🍾
