Dolly's Day

WORLD FAMED

Had a distrurbed nights sleep so I slept late and haven't really done much at all today. A few household chores were ticked off the list and that's about it.  Haven't left the house apart from to put bird food out.  It's been a dry day but very windy.

At 6pm I took part in my Slimming Group Zoom meeting.  6 of us were online this week. We did a quiz based on the TV show Family Fortunes with questions about the Slimming World Plan.   We got points according to the answers we gave.  Out of a possible 50 points my score was 42 .... and I was the winner.  Yay.  ( My weight stayed the same this week.)

After having my evening meal I watched Bake Off :The Professionals on TV.  It was the Final tonight - and my favourite team won.

I didn't have anything in mind  to blip for Tiny Tuesday so I had a " scratch around " in the drawers of the dresser and came up with this card of Newey's hooks and eyes.  They belonged to my husbands step mother.  The " motto on the card says " If it fastens Newey's made it ".  Thanks to dbifulco for hosting the challenge.

Newey Brothers were manufacturers of buttons, hooks, hairpins and wireless accessories. The company was established by Richard Newey in Birmingham in 1798. By 1876 the company had extensive works at 53-55 Brearley Street, Birmingham and offices in London.They became a limited company in 1903 and had around 1,000 employees at this time specialising in dress fasteners, hairpins, dress hooks and tent hooks. In the 1930s and 40s the company advertised as manufacturers of metal smallware, including press buttons, hairpins, corset, garter and suspender fittings, buckles and hair grips. They traded until at least the 1970's.
