Trying To Be A L-A-D-Y....

I have been in more laps than a napkin - Mae West
Welcome to a cloudy Tuesday..
Where has the sun gone? 
Enjoyed a cuppa in bed 🛏 
I gave everyone a sloppy kiss 💋  before everyone left..
I might have to wear a new Superhero t-shirt..
 Enjoyed a nibble and coffee↓
I did some housework..
followed by
the 5 a day green soup.
The sun is trying to come out↓
 It's not that warm..
No big big sunglasses..
The road I normally take to work is closed.
Around half of Redditch to get to work ;D
Finally get here..

Those dark clouds are coming over :(
At least the temperature has gone up↗↗

I had a box delivered.
It's rhubarb!
Then the rain comes down..
I go off to do other job.
A visitor calls me a "Lady"
I reply,"I rarely get called a L-a-d-y!"
The visitor said,"Surely not?"
I laugh and reply,"Surely yes."
Added bonus,
My great cake making skills was acknowledged too:)
Just gets back before the hail stones come down↓↓↓

What's that old saying?
"Too many cooks?"↓
Oh dear.....
Still has enough food left to eat!
I did a bit of book writing...
We all went to bed early.
(I was armed with my ear plugs)
