Watching Them Flash!

 “I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.”
Mae West 
Happy Sunday!
I woke up too early for a Sunday.
 Time for a brew downstairs....↓
I fell back off to sleep for an hour,
Only to woken up by Sleeping Beauty and a cup of brew!
Now to get the Christmas Decorations up!
For the first time in years, we have lights on the front of the house!
And in the stairs window↓
The tree in the living room goes up↗↗
Our youngest puts up a tree in his bedroom.
Quick lunchbreak.
One episode of Hell's Kitchen.
Hubby went out to collect some items I bought...
(Always comes in useful!)
Old sewing table which I am going to upcycle in red!
When I got it, out came the material.
I ordered some bits to finish it off.
Lets see if the lights work in the Living Room window...
Let's see if the Bakery is open...
Now to see what the lights look like outside, now it's dark!
Now a little treat for all the hard work we have done over the weekend!
Everyone then was getting all their things ready for school and work...
I carried on watching Hell's Kitchen...
With my Sleep Tea↓
We caught up with Friday's episode of
Mae West  was an American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedian, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned seven decades. She was known for her lighthearted, bawdy double entendres and breezy sexual independence, and often used a husky contralto voice. She was active in vaudeville and on stage in New York City before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry.
West was one of the most controversial movie stars of her day; she encountered many problems, especially censorship. She once quipped, "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it.She died on this day aged 87 in 1980.
Now to enjoy this Christmas Decorations for nearly 6 weeks!

I'm On the Road From Hell!

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun - Katharine Hepburn
Welcome to my Sunday😳
Brew with hug.
Going to see if my knee had hold up driving...
Gives Sexy Beast a good run. 
Picks up the Overlocker.
One woman in a grey Kia didn't like me sticking to the speed limit. Looked over at me, and my husband just looked back at her!
One white Audi came out of a side road and didn't see me coming. Then he got stuck behind a bus and didn't like that!
I was glad to get home in one piece!
Now to take the overlocker into the house!
It will have to share the space with the Sewing Machine.
(I will have to make it a dust jacket soon)
Much needed cup of coffee after that Journey.
While hubby went for a walk
(Peace and quiet from me more like!)
I carried on sewing my bag....
Finally finished it now!
The pattern was↓

Welcome to my Sunday 😝
After tasting my brew...
It tasted terrible...
The water filter in the kettle is on the way out....
Yukky brew!
We nipped out to Waitrose to try out the knee.
There were lots of reduced items to be had.
It's a good thing I had left my £5 off voucher that came in the mail last month.
There was a big queue to get in when I came out.
Gets back home to unpack the goodies.
At least I have a Waitrose calender to hang up in my kitchen on January 1st.
Nice cup of coffee....
Hubby ordered some more water filters for the kettle. He went off to pick them up, while I read this week's Private Eye magazine↓
Light lunch time.
We then caught up with:
While I dried 3 baskets of washing in the tumble drier.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby meanwhile had some spare time to go on the Wii...
Then it was time to round up the kids for their showers, and get their school clothes ready for tomorrow.
Faggots,Mash and Peas for tea.
Back on to season 3 of Hell's Kitchen.
I read today's newspapers.
