Disco Time!

There are two types of people; those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am," and those who walk into a room and say, "Ah, there you are!". - Frederick Collins
Welcome to my SundayπŸ’‹
After the late night we had.
We had a bit of lie-in.
Nice brew in bed with a warm hug.
Breakfast.
We just lay in bed listening to the radio.
Loud knock on the front door.
It was my next door neighbour.
He was locked out.
Good job his son gave me a spare key!
Now to get dressed!
First a warm coffee to wake the brain.
Then out for a little ride.
We got the newspaper.
Then to test hubby's air pressure of his tyres.
The electrics were playing up on his car....
Spooky time πŸ‘» 
Gets back home.
I use up some shortcrust pastry and a jar of mincemeat. 
Blind baked the pastry.
Let it cool down.
Added the filling and back in the oven it goes.
Late lunchtime.
The tart had been baked.
I gone on with cooking tonight's tea before putting it in the oven for later.
Belated Tea at 3.
I ordered some things I need for the upcoming Valentine's Day πŸ’—
Hopefully they will arrive before Feb 14th!
Tea is ready.

Cynicism is an unpleasant way of saying the truth - Lilliah Hellman
 Welcome to my cold Thursday....😬
Brew with warm hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby went to scrape his car free of ice.
I gave him a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he left the house.
I got the kids up to do their on-line learning for school. 
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Put some music from my Jukebox on Twitter.
Now out for some fresh air...
Now to scrape Sexy Beast's windscreen.
It's freezing cold!
I gets the newspaper.
Comes back home.
All the curtains remain closed, as I have very draughty windows, and what with the heating being in, I don't need to lose the heat!
Coffee time.
Quick read of the newspaper.

Larry Grayson , born William Sulley White, was an English comedian and television presenter who was best known in the 1970s and early '80s. He is best remembered for hosting the BBC's popular series The Generation Game and for his high camp and English music hall humour.
His camp stand-up act consisted mainly of anecdotes about a cast of imaginary friends; the most frequently mentioned were Everard and Slack Alice. He is often cited as one of the first gay entertainers to have enjoyed mass appeal, although he never made any reference to his sexuality. He was devoted to his adopted home town of Nuneaton, where a museum display relating to his life and work and a memorial have been established. 
He died on this day in 1995 aged 71. 
 Then to roll out the pastry to make a tart.

So we did.
We both enjoyed it!
