Getting Them Warmed Up!!

 If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them - Isaac Asimov
Welcome Back to the much missed Friday Feeling 🎈
After so much fun I have had this week,
I'm hoping I have a good Friday 🎈
Brew and Hug.
We left it too late for our walk.
(We will do one later)
Out into Sexy Beast
Back home.
I give hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
The kids didn't escape from me for their πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Quick look in the newspaper
Adelmo Fornaciari Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI  , more commonly known by his stage name Zucchero Fornaciari or simply Zucchero , is an Italian singer-songwriter and musician. His stage name is the Italian word for "sugar", as his elementary teacher used to call him. His music is largely inspired by gospel, soul, blues and rock music, and alternates between Italian ballads and more rhythmic R&B-boogie-like pieces. He is credited as the "father of Italian blues", introducing blues to the big stage in Italy. He is one of the few European blues artists who still enjoy great international success.He is 65 years old 🎈
Andy Williams  was an American singer. He recorded 43 albums in his career, of which 15 have been gold-certified and 3 platinum-certified. He was also nominated for six Grammy Awards.

The Moon River Theatre in Branson, Missouri, is named after the song for which he is best known—Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini's "Moon River". He sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including more than 10 million certified units in the United States. He died on this day in 2012 aged 84.

 I got invited out for coffee before work...
"Yes please".
 I replied to the invite! 
A little bit of singing on the way..
The sun is really bright↓
Now for coffee, yak and chocolate biscuits!
I thanked my friend for the coffee...
Now to get to work with some singing-a-long
I looked over the fields of fun...
I made some people laugh...
(Made my day that did!)
Nothing was mentioned about yesterday
(It will be in the near future, I'm sure about that!)
Back to Sexy Beast and the singing...
The sun was still shining except the wind was a bit too strong to sit out in!
Light lunch time↓
I finished writing yesterday's blog post.
Now to look in the freezer for something for tea tonight....
Found something.
Belated Tea at 3.
I put the tea in the oven.
Gave hubby a big wet πŸ’‹
Back to do the daily walk we miss this morning...
Plenty to talk about on this walk...
Another 0.71miles to add to the total this week!
Tea is ready↓
Now to burn it off ....
Last visit of the week to work.
Big tune to start with↓
I was glad I built a sweat up,
As it was freezing cold when I got home.
We treated ourselves to 2 episodes of NYPD Blue, from season 10.
Once that fresh duvet cover and throw was put on the bed...
Time to warm up those cold hands!
Let's celebrate, the weekend will be here soon 🎈

Just as I left, it started to rain.
Hopefully it stops raining when I get to work.
Back to the singing...↓
The sun came out \o/
I could see a helicopter in the distance.
While I was going into work, it came over.
Then the fun started like it has this week...
It feels like I shouldn't be having any contact with the kids now, even though I'm employed to do so.
Time is running out of me being there......
I was glad to get back in the Sexy Beast after all of that fun!
Back to the singing↓ 
It's a lot colder than yesterday.
No sitting outside today with lunch!
Finished yesterday's blog.
Tea at 3
I had phone call from my Lollipop boss 🍭
I will be going back to work soon..
Woo hoo \o/
I phoned my friend to tell her of the fun I had today.
She couldn't believe it either!
I gave hubby a big sloppy πŸ’‹ when he came home.
I put the tea on and went out for a little walk.
Filled in the sheet.
We might be a little adventurous tomorrow and might go further..
I chatted to my friend who used to visit me on a Tuesday while I was recovering from my accident....
Tea was ready by then↓
After that I went down to work.
The key fitted in the padlock without any problems.
Now to start with a big tune↓
Once I finished.
I caught up on the news.

Paper review with some Sleep Tea.
So glad the Friday Feeling is coming back tomorrow...🎈
I need a truck load after this week!

Look in the newspaper↓

He is 71 years old 🎈
There was only light rain when I left the house.
There is nothing better than singing in heavy rain while driving...
It's a pity I didn't bring my rain mac now.
I had a quick look across the fields of fun
Yet another bad day...
When things are late, then everything goes wrong...
It was still raining when I got into Sexy Beast.
No sitting outside to eat my lunch↓
A good film came to watch at the weekend↓
Pulling my hair out on how Blogger has been updated. Half the time I can't load the pictures up and it is so slow....!
Finally got two blog posts published!
My younger brother phoned.
He has had some more paperwork from my late dad's Solicitor...
It concerns the fittings of my late dad's house.He is coming round to show me and get me to fill out it out. I am looking forward to filling out the feedback form on this Solicitor.
I am the forgotten sibling!  
The day gets even better when I get a text message saying my child maintenance is going down by £40. The review is in November, let's hope the ex-plum has paid off the nearly £1200 in arrears he owed. 
We are taking part in something run by the council...
30 Days of Fitness Challenge.
As soon as hubby came back. 
Back on the walking we go.
3 lengths of the road. We saw a Police Van come down, and go back up the road....
Now to fill it in:
Now to dish up the Pasta Bake for tonight's tea↓

Then I go to work...
Then we have a problem..
The key gets jammed in the padlock!
Then it starts to rain!
Youngest son comes along and hey presto!
The key is free!
Now to start work with a big tune↓
Once I get finished.
We catch up on Judge Rinder
With some sleep tea
Let's hope I don't have any more bumps in the road tomorrow!
