Leaving A Sunday Trail...

“As long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?”
Cassandra Clare,
City of Ashes
Welcome to a sunny Sunday!
 No lie-in for me...
So much to cram in...
 At least the sun is shining😎
I go to work with some good tunes to listen and sing along to ....
It was nice to see the sunshine again when I finished↓↓↓
 I leave hubby and one of my sons to errect my new greenhouses...
I take the other son shopping...
 Big big sunglasses time 🕶
When I finished my shopping, I got a takeaway Mocha using my new cup!
I put it in the trolley, and told me son to make sure it doesn't fall over in the trolley, while he pushed the trolley.......
I went to pay for sandwiches for him and his brother, when I noticed a large coffee trail from when he had been standing to further up the shop to where he was standing........
It was a massive eye roll moment!
One of the staff cleaned up the coffee trail.
I was not happy, I was left with half a cup of Mocha!
I gets home to crack the whip....
 No sandwiches for us↓
 It was nice to sit and enjoy the garden!
 I went round to see my dad.
While there, he had his telephone on loud speaker....
Very interesting conversation with his lady-friend.....
"I could stop over and sleep on the sofa,"My dad said.
"I'm not have your frame ruining my carpet!"She replied to that.
"I have changed my telephone line supplier, the one  my late wife signed up for,and it's getting expensive...." My dad said.
She replied, "Well your late wife did make some bad choices.......!!!!!"
I had heard enough, I said goodbye to my dad and left!
I got home to put the evening meal in the oven....
Then to catch up with the Birthdays, while everyone had showers....

Sitting On My Hands...

It's Sunday once again..
Dark clouds are forming....
Caught up on the housework.
Having no money at the moment doesn't help ;(
So off to find another job.
Applying for a 4th job, hubby isn't to keen on that idea.
He says,"As I have enough hassle with my other 3 jobs I have!"
"Never mind."I say.
I am enjoying sitting on my hands, in my garden, enjoying the sun.
By sitting in the shade ;P
