Name That Tune!

The difference between light and hard is you can sleep with a light on - Anon
Welcome to my Sunday 🚧
Nice hug to start Sunday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Got up the kids.....
Hubby went and got a car full from the Storage Unit.
While he was doing that, I was sorting through boxes in the Dining Room.
The pile for the tip was getting bigger.
Some of the things that came from the storage unit, were put in some other boxes.
Coffee time.
One car load sorted out.
Early lunch is needed!
Found something we bought for our wedding 10 years ago.
One son put it up in the garden...
Will come in useful for next year!
Then we popped out to pick up some free food from Olio, magic bag from Morrisons, and pick up some more storage boxes from Argos.
While we put 3 bags of clothes in the recycle bank, the cardboard box bank was overflowing.
Popped into see my mum and dad.
Then back home to unpack the shopping.
One more car load from the storage unit.
Sorted through all that.
Then load up the car for the tip run, while I put the tea on.
While that was cooking, I had to write 2 blog posts.
Soon tea was ready to dish up.
Finished blog writing.
Got all the washing sorted out.
I was playing spot the intro with my youngest son, he is getting very good at it.
Husband tried it, and didn't get one song from the 1980s...
My Father-in-law is having his own full bag of magic.......
Looked at today's Birthdays...

Robbing The Cup Of Soup!

Anything good in life is either Illegal,immoral or fattening 
- Murphy's law
Welcome to Mother's Day 💮💮
Thinking of my late mum....
 (She passed away in 2013)
I enjoyed a much needed lie-in.
 I enjoyed a lovely hug and tea↑
Had some adult time.....;)
Once we got up,
More boxes to sort out...
Empty boxes were put outside for my younger brother to collect.
My younger son made me a nice Mother's Day meal↓
 Hubby tried to go down the tip and the queue was too long.
He came back, unloaded the car.
I found the clock my mum bought my dad.
On the wall that went↓
 Hubby went food shopping with my younger son.
I still had to tidy up the house!!!
When they came back.
I was given flowers!💮💮
 I unloaded the shopping and loaded up the dishwasher.
I went outside for some nice fresh air↓
So much for people stopping in.
The lake near us had been packed for 2 days running.
As my late dad once said:
"The sun brings out people like Freckles!" 
Hubby loaded up the car and tried to go the tip again.
It was closed.
He had to come back and unload the car.
While I was making the pie.
My younger brother was having a text spat with my hubby.
We had gone around to my late dad's house yesterday. I brought back my Horror film book, 2 packs of baby wipes and 8 boxes of cup of soup.
My younger brother said:
"I should have told him, I was taking the cup of soup!"
My reply to that was:
"Funny he hasn't told me the beds, all the furniture that has disappeared!"
He then accused us of taking my dad's clothers and cleaning things.
My hubby put him right on a few things...
Then got blocked for it!
Roll on with no more messages from him..
(I have blocked him from everything.)
The Chicken,Mushroom and Leek Pie is ready!
 Now to chill with Miss Marple↓

Squeezing The Last Drops of The Weekend!

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”

We had a nice lie...
More things to do around the house.
A large pile of things
(including the broken mower) had to go down the tip.
Hubby loaded up his car ready to go down the tip.
I put up the new curtains in the kitchen!
  New voiles in the hallway window↓
 New voiles in the bathroom window↓
New voiles in the Living room window↓
 New voile in the small window in the Living room↓
 Hubby came back from an near empty tip.
I tidied up the dining room after we emptied the living room to have the near new stuff.
I tidied up around my computer. I even managed to fit a new letter trays.
Tidy Up Time!
Desk Tidy
We got tickets to watch John Wick 3 later..
We went round to see my dad.
