Catching Up With It!

I find that distance lends enchantment to bagpipes 
- William Blezard
Welcome to my Sunday Fun 👀
As the hour went forward, we stopped in bed a bit longer \o/
Breakfast and Brew time.
It's got a bit colder.
On goes the thermal vest.
Out in Sexy Beast for some fresh air.
Checked the tyre pressures.
We went to pick up the afternoon tea for two from Morrison's cafe.
Waited 10 minutes for it.
It cost me only £10
Gets back home.
Coffee machine went on.
Washing machine also went on.
Lots of housework to get done.
Breadmaker also went on.
Coffee time.
As I can't eat normal bread, hubby had the sandwiches that was in the box.
I used the bread I bought from Waitrose last week.
The bread was baked for this week!
The electric clothes drier was put to use.
Hubby sorted through 4 bags of things that came from his late dad's house.
I had to write 3 blog posts.
We listened to Pick of Pops from 1978 and 1990.
There were 2 songs that wasn't played from 1990.
Here are two thumping songs↓
JT and the Big Family - Moments in Soul
Guru Josh - Infinity
We had a late tea.
I looked into this weekend's newspaper again:
UK No.1 on this day in 1983:
Duran Duran - Is There Something I should Know?
UK No.1 on this day in 1988:
Aswad - Don't Turn Around
US No.1 on this day in 1977:
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow.

Should I Stay Or Go?

 Comedies of manners swiftly become obsolete when there are no longer any manners - Noel Coward.
Welcome to my Thursday of Good or Bad News.
I am still feeling terrible.
Hubby had the day off work to attend the meeting later on.
Time to do the Heardle.
Heardle 60s.
My answers:
As I am only drinking water, and having dry toast for breakfast, there is no photo of the cup this morning.
Once I got up the thermal vest went on.
Got some fresh air by helping hubby load his car up for the tip run.
I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋 before he went out.
I got the living room ready for the meeting later.
Hubby comes back with the newspaper.
All ready for the meeting concerning our house.
Meeting time. 
In the meeting were, 2 Councillors, hubby, me and the my Housing Officer.
Bad news, the Council doesn't want to do up next door and have decided to sell the land with my house on it.
(I wonder who wants to buy the land my house is on???
Any guesses???)
I was asked: "If I was living here in the middle of a Industrial Estate?" 
"Of course I am happy living here!"I replied.
He will have to tell who is in charge, I am not going anywere!
If I had the money I would buy the land off the council myself.
Knock down the 2 houses down and build a nice new 6 bedroom house.
Electric fence all around,
Watch Tower in the front garden ;)
I had digs on how much stuff I have!
I call this meeting a Comedy of Errors!
Once everyone had left I took a deep breath.
The Cabin Bed I had bought my older son was took down and took down to the tip!
He had bought himself a single bed but no mattress!
Another night sleeping away.
Time for a liquid lunch!
Another Skeleton arrived!
Hubby had two more tip runs taking the rest of the expensive cabin bed I had bought my older son :( :(
Hubby got a take away on the way back.
I needed to try some solid food!
We will have to see what happens now....
Now to look inside today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1967:
The Monkees - I'm A Believer
UK No.1 on this day in 1974:
New Seekers - You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me.
UK No.1 on this day in 1980:

I was starting to feel terrible.
There was no need for some Sleep Tea.
Off to bed early....
At least the Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Doing Up The House Some More!

Erotic is when you use a feather. Kinky is when you use the whole chicken - Anon.
Welcome to my Sunday 💗
It's going to be warm!
Breakfast with brew.
Out far too early for a Sunday ;)
Right back on it!
Now to paint the front of the house.
One cheerful neighbour came out of his home, totally ignored me and got in his car and drove off. 
(He must be suffering still from the camera that went up his bottom in May!)
Finished the front of the house before the sun moved around.
Now to finish applying the second layer of paint around the back!
Now to add adhesive wrap to the kitchen cupboards.
Sorted out the bathroom once and for all.
New volie in the front bedroom.
Found a tape I owed back in the 1980's
Put him on top of the kitchen cupboard.
I bought the two of the three singles that were released off the album.
True Love (1988)
Jezebel (1989)↓
Also came across a signed autograph of Big Daddy↓
Also a weekly shopping list of my late Father-in-law's↓
Because it was getting too hot,
The wallpaper I bought,
wasn't playing ball with hubby who was trying to put it on the wall.
All of it couldn't be saved and in the bin it went :(
It was getting too warm to do anything else.
Time to go home to chill!
House looking nice :)
On the way home, we were stuck behind a Sunday Driver doing 30 m.p.h in a 50.
There was a large convoy building up behind us.
There were only two chances to overtake it.
We took the first chance.
After ten minutes, the road behind us was clear for miles!
Back home.
Time for a dip in the pool!
Once it went cooler.
Hubby got to play with his big drill!
We had a light tea.
We did the Heardles.
Heardles 60s:
My son's answers were:
Quick look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1968:
Crazy World Of Arthur Brown - Fire
UK No.1 on this day in 1993:
Freddy Mercury - Living On My Own
US No.1 on this day in 1965:
Sonny & Cher - I Got You Babe 
Then we watched "Marriage".
Oh dear, can I have my hour back!
Sleep Tea Time.
I slept downstairs as it was still too warm to sleep upstairs!
No Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 for me this week.
