Jumping Puddles

Anyone who works is a fool.I don't work: I merely inflict myself upon the public - Robert Morley
Welcome to a wet and cold Hump of the Week 🐫
We might be pushed for our daily walk due to the rain :(
Brew and Hug.
Out too late for walk.
Into Sexy Beast we go.
It started to rain on the way back.
It was a good job we didn't go for our walk in the end.
I gave hubby a sloppy  wet 💋 before he left.
I did it to the kids too.💋💋.
I emptied all the bins in the house.
Loaded up the dish-washer.

    With coffee..
Good job I wore my rain mac...
As it was still raining when I left for a small ride in Sexy Beast.
Plenty of singing to do in the rain...
The rain had followed me!
I looked across the fields of fun↓
One song describes how it went...
The rain had stopped \o/
More singing to do...
At least it has stopped raining for now.
I had some light lunch.
Then it was time to make the beef and mushroom casserole for later..
Nice bit of cider going in..
The red cooking pot was put in the oven for later.
I then started on yesterday's blog.
Hubby had nipped into the local Lidl by his work. No cleaning station to clean the trolleys.Hardly no one wearing masks.
He made sure he washed his hands when he got back to his car afterwards!
When he got back, he was pouring with rain.
No walking just yet.
As he only brought the green milk.
(I can't drink it no more, as it makes me bad)
We were going to go to Asda and get some blue milk after tea.
The tea was ate.
Now to Asda we go↓
We did a walk about in there....
0.22 miles...
More CDs to singalong with as well↓
Now off to work I go.
Big tune to start with:
There was a lovely moon out tonight.
I caught up with the news,
With some sleep tea.
I hope it gets a bit warmer tomorrow...
So I can take off my thermal vest!

The sunshine followed me!
I looked across the fields of fun↓
There was some nice baking going on...
They looked and smelt really nice!
It was still sunny when I left.
More singing to do...
Back home in the sunshine.

My youngest's son's new winter coat has arrived↑
He has had his old winter coat for the last 5 years.
Hopefully this one will last a long time too! 
I had a message from my Lollypop Boss.
I'm back next week!
I have a quick lunch↓
My youngest brother turns up with some forms for me to fill in.
He was holding a McDonald's coffee.
"Where is mine?" I ask.
"You have a kettle to make a coffee!".
I will remember this next time he demands a cup of tea when he visits!
I found out why I haven't been having no paperwork from the solicitor as, 
She has put my address as my younger brothers!!!
Next I find out, all the fixtures and fittings in my dad's house is in the price of the house. Nothing was said to me about it until now.
My youngest brother said:
"Don't moan, we got an extra £10,000 above the market price!"
I did put down on the paperwork that the upstairs bathroom the Prodical brother put in, it isn't finished.
He has still put an invoice to the Solicitor for the finished bathroom, which isn't finished! 
I emailed the Solicitor to see if we are going to have the money from my late dad's bank accounts. She said in a few weeks time....
Now she is saying, she will put it together with the money from the house instead....
I was glad when he left!
I wasn't in the mood for sewing after that!
I got more food shopping online that will help keep down our food shopping at the weekend.
Hubby had a big sloppy 💋 when he came home.
As it was nice and dry...
Back on the daily walk....
0.92 miles done.
We had some nice beef burgers for tea.
Even watched one episode of NYPD Blue...
Then off to work I go with a big tune:
There was a nice big moon out when I got home↓↓
Caught up with this week's GBBO.
With some sleep tea↓
Let's hope for a sunny hump tomorrow!
