We had a rather busy week.
Sunday – I was doing extra hours in work to cover for holidays. I managed to finish by 2pm so had most of the afternoon to laze about.
Monday – GOOD NEWS!!! The plumber turned up and fixed the water supply. The pressure valve he fitted last week just needed adjusting and the leak on the water cylinder didn’t need a part after all…just uncoupled and new plumbing tape fitted to it. So we now have lashings of hot pressurised water!!
Tuesday – Lazed around the house, tidying and cleaning. We arranged last week for the leather repairer to do some repairs to our big sofa. One seaat pad has a hole worn in it and part of the foam had slipped making it look lop sided. It has to be taken apart in the house as it’s too big to go through the door. It was a tight fit even when it was new!
It’ll be gone for a week then the 2 seater is off for some new padding.
Wednesday – Work day – finished later than usual so we had to change plans for Orange Wednesday and go later than planned. Hubby had got a couple of casseroles out of the freezer and peeled some potatoes so all we had to do was get them cooked and reheat the casseroles when we got home.
This week we watched ‘Kingsman – The Secret Service’, imagine James Bond taken to higher level.. it’s wickedly funny, full of action and really rather mad. It’s about a very secret service that operates beyond the usual MI6 and they are recruiting for a new member after the demise of one spy at the start of the film. All the new recruits are put through tough tests to prove their worthiness.
The film rattles along at a good pace and there are some great set pieces. One in particular with Colin Firth battling against a church full of people to the backing sound of Lynard Skynard’s Freebird. Well any film that has that tune in it is ok in my book as it’s in my top 3 all time great tunes.
Thursday – working again to cover holidays.
Hubby bought a load of curry / chinese sauces from the local supermarket. All going for a bargain as they are not going to stock Pataks /Sharwoods any longer. Nice to have for those times when you want to cook up something quick or for the times you can’t be arsed to cook from scratch!!
We went to see Oldest boy and the kiddies. Ashley is much more interested in his brother now that he’s taking more notice. He loves to make him laugh and Theo smiles as soon as he sees him. I hope they have’ll always have brotherly love like their daddy and his brother.
Friday – Good news from Oz, youngest son has WiFi back!! Gawd I’ve missed having him online.. they moved from their house to an apartment so he had an easier journey to work and since moving they’ve had to wait for a new connection to the phone lines and broadband. A good Skype session planned for Sunday morning.
It’s hubby’s 60th on Sunday and we went out for a buffet curry.. how good am I to agree to that rather than watch Wales v England in the 6 Nations. (I’m the rugby nut – he’s not sport minded at all)
Saturday – Not much going on. Caught up with a few blogs and trying to clear my laptop of loads of crap to make it run a bit faster.
Here’s my selection for the week.
- The sauces shelf in my cupboard
- Hubby enjoying his second plate of curry!
- The sofa waiting for it’s seating back!
- Theo the chubby babba
- Theo laughing at Ashley, who was pulling faces at him and blowing raspberries!
