Giving It A Good Workout!

Blood is thicker than water and much more difficult to get out of the carpet - Woody Allen
Welcome to a humid, sweaty Tuesday.
Once we had breakfast, and I gave hubby a sloppy 💋, he left the house.
I had a date with a paint brush today!
I put on some old clothes...
I gave the garden a good water,
Hung more washing on the line.
Now for...↓
 Coffee and vitamin C.
The big black box of tools had to be dragged out from under the stairs and opened.
I found my sander....↓
 Once the 3 shelves were sanded down.
Going to give the paint brush a good work out!
 They were given 2 coats in total,
Dried out in the sunshine.
 Now to paint the kitchen cabinet...
 My vitamins were delivered,
As long as my son's new curtains for his bedroom↓
 While I was painting,
My kids went over to visit their Granddad.
A quick lunch↓
 I applied the second coats of paint to the kitchen cabinet.
It was getting well warm now.
Time for a sucky!
 Off to work I go....
 I came back with a lovely red face...
Ice Cream time!
The final delivery of the day..
A new curtain pole for my son's room!
(Fingers crossed it will be put up later!)  
The cabinet is now finished!
 While eating out tea,
It started to rain..
A mad dash to get all of the washing in.
 While there was a break in the rain.
I went off to do my final job of the day with some great music↓
 I came back home and it was still warm...
I ordered more paint,
As the other two 1960s units I have in the dining room is going to be repainted .
So I have a trio of cabinets in the same colour.
We had a good bout of thunder and lightening at about 1am.
Even with earplugs in,
I could still hear it!

So Near, Yet So Far!

After having a lie in this morning,
(Making the most of that big King size bed)
I changed the duvet cover...
(Before it walked itself down to the washing machine)
The washing machine washed all the previous bed topper,pillow cases and duvet cover.
They are now drying in the sunshine...
I checked my Euro-millions ticket from Friday with bated breath...

 2 numbers matched = £2.90
Matched the first three numbers of the UK Millionaire Maker Code as well 
(Lots of foot stamping and saying "Balls" alot for that result)
 I will have to treat myself to a extra special gift of......

Pass Me The Big Sunglasses...

Sunshine and blue skies!!
Time to make most of it...
Bucket and sponge time!
 Stripping off the layers of clothers,
Like an onion shedding its layers..
Then it was time to give Larry a rub down
After 2 hours, Larry is nice and clean.
 Larry finishes on Ebay tonight...
Let's hope someone likes having a ride with Larry!

Watch Out For That Headstone!!

Made the most of the strong winds we had today.
Out goes the wet washing, held onto the washing lines for dear life with plastic pegs
We then went out for a Sunday drive.
We looked around two more graveyards.
First was Stoke Prior.
We still trying to find this elusive Church we can't remember where we saw it.
We ended up in Droitwich again.
So we looked around the graveyard...
