Talk, Talk, & More Talk!

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do - Martha Grimes.
 Welcome to my Thursday πŸ„
I had a bit of lie-in this morning.
I gave hubby a quick hug and sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he left to go to work.
I ate my breakfast and enjoyed my first brew of the day.
Today is the 7th anniversary of writing this blog!
Thank you for reading it!
An engineer is coming today to look at why our internet speed is not fast enough.
Now to move to Sewing table out of the way, so he can look at the phone line starts.....
More Gnomes for the garden arrives.
In to the garden they go↓
Now to go and fetch the newspaper.
Has a chat with the woman in the shop.
Then back home I go.
I was looking around for some reasonably priced tickets for Barry Manilow's concert next June in Birmingham....
I found some right near the stage....
Woo Hoo!
I was in the middle of writing yesterday's blog post, when the Engineer arrived.
(Good job I did move the sewing table out of the way in the end)
We got chatting while he was checking the line.
(I bet he was thinking I don't get out much....)
I was telling about the series about 9/11 we are watching.
He escaped up the road to check the box.
When he came back,
I asked "If he ear hurts?"
He laughed, more chin wagging, he kept looking at his watch. He finally tore himself away at 2pm, to get to the next job.
We moved the router about 5 times to see if the speed could get higher. 
Where it was in the first place was the highest speed. 
Late lunch.
Then I chopped up some onions, mushrooms, and garlic.
Fried them up, with the sausages and added vegetables to the red casserole dish.
In the oven it went on...
Belated 
Tea at 3.
Finished writing the blog post.
Oven got turned on.
Watered all the plants outside.
Hubby came home and received a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Casserole was dished up.
Afterwards I had a quick look in the newspaper.
Now to carry on watching about 9/11.
Sleep Tea.
5th episode.
The final episode is on tomorrow.
It's getting quite cold at night...
Topper goes over the duvet now!
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Then off to get results of my blood test from two weeks ago.

We got chatting and then she realised that she has 3 patients to see in the waiting room.
I will see her in 6 months time. 
Back to the Sexy Beast I go. 
I went past my late dad's house.
It's looking like a public car park now.
Four cars parked on the drive.
Back home.
Unloads and loads up dishwasher.
Time to write yesterday's blog.
I didn't have any post which I thought was funny as I am expecting at least  one crafting magazine!
The wallpaper border I bought on 8th March is still stuck in the Hermes network, I might have to ask for a replacement!  
Lunchtime.
Going back to writing my blog,
The post appeared at 2.20pm?????????
Nice stamps 
(Which I have kept)
I got a feeling it was wrongly delivered to one of the factories around here!
Let's see which craft magazine it is....
Lots of nice things to make in here.
Tea at 3.
Hubby is going to see his dad after work.
I found an ideal cleaning job near me.
However the pay was a bit poop↓
Oh well, keep on looking.
As soon as Boris has his press conference.
I had the certain email 15 mins later....
No need to shield after 31st March.
Fingers crossed we don't have another bad wave of Covid coming after the country has been opened up in June!
At least I am having my second jab before 25th May...
Hubby meanwhile might be lucky and have his first jab in May..... 
I put on the tea early.
Now to watch a film.
I looked on Netflix, then on Prime Video.
I found the film I was looking for since Valentine's Day↓
Tea time.
Hubby comes back after the film has finished.
He has a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
He gives me today's newspaper.
Chuck Berry  was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. Nicknamed the "Father of Rock and Roll", Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive with songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958). Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.
He died on this day aged 90 in 2017. 
Now to catch up with Line of Duty.
Sleep Tea time.
We had another 10 mins to go but after having a lavender shower I was ready for bed!
At least the Friday Feeling 🎈is back tomorrow!
