One Flash Too Many!

 Television is a weapon of mass distraction - Larry Gelbart
Welcome to my Thursday 👍
Brew with a much needed hug.
It looked pretty cloudy...
Rain is on the way....
I gave hubby a wet sloppy 💋 before I left.
I hoped it was just going to be cloudy.
On goes the summer coat.
Tree Pic.
I put on my lights, now for the fun to start.
The traffic was moving until the Flower lorry.
Some cars are the otherside weren't stopping anytime soon!
At least I finished in one piece!
The rain held off as well!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee maker.
Then I had a nice cold shower!
Now to enjoy the coffee...
I got all my Prima Makes magazines out...
I however am missing issue 11.
Finally found on and won it!
One Ebayer was getting a bit greedy.
I put a offer of £2 for her magazine.
She fired back another offer of £3, saying £2 was too low (even though she put the starting bid of £2)
and she has 3 other watchers.
Fine, let them have it.
I am watching it to see if it goes for £2 or it doesn't sell! 
I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Now for lunch!
Now out for part two.
There was no rain when I left my house, half way to my job it came down.
Parks up Sexy Beast and it stopped. 
I go down to look into the Charity Shop before I start.
Picked up a great film for 50p!
Brilliant film!
Now to do up the coat and getting ready for round 2.
I was right hot under the collar for the first 20 minutes.
Then the rain came down and cooled me right down!
I had the normal car drivers that don't understand the word STOP!
Finished for today!
Once I got back to Sexy Beast,  my friend appeared with his dog.
After 50 minutes of chatting, I said Goodbye.
On the way home, I was followed by a small black van, when I nearly reached home.
I signalled to turn right, a skip lorry was at the junction I was turning into,he was waiting to turn right(out of the junction).
As I come up to the lorry, the driver suddenly slammed on his brakes.I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the Black van was flashing at the lorry to go, but I was in the way!I turned right, then the lorry himself turned right and the black van was sat there waiting to get into the road!
One lucky escape! 
The rain started again!
Now to put the food in the oven for tea.
I finished watching I survived 9/11 again, I missed some bits the first time round.
I gave hubby a big sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Tea was ready!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Bang, Crash, The Lid Comes Off!

 That money talks, I'll not deny: I heard it once, it said, "Goodbye." - Richard Armour
Welcome to my Saturday 💪
I had a hot flush at 4.30am....
I couldn't cool down.....
Downstairs I went for a bit under the fan with a cup of tea!
I fell asleep for an hour...
Woke up and made a brew....
Took them upstairs....
Woke up Sleeping Beauty before the alarm went off...
We listened to Sounds of the 60s...
Got one son up for his job.
Hubby waited for the Satellite repair man to come while I dropped off son at work.
I have a coffee and chat at my son's work.
Then off to Sainsbury's to drop off some shoes at the shoe bank.
Nipped into Sainsburys while I was there.
I gets back home shortly after.
No sign of the Satellite repair man, it had gone past 10am!

On his way, was his response when asked.
We had a sneaky bacon sandwich while waiting.
I went back to bed half an hour later to catch up on the sleep I missed this morning.
When I woke, the tree outside my son's bedroom window was just losing a large branch!
The Satellite Repair man, fixed the cable  that led from the sky box to the sky dish, however the branch belonging to the tree was blocking the signal.
He did offer to move the dish to the chimney for £150.
The tree losing one branch was the cheaper option.
The branch was added to the pile that was going down the Household tip tomorrow!
Light lunch.
We watched another episode of Hotel Inspector.
Then it was out for a little ride to get some bits..from...
Got some vanish for the garden bench.
Glue to glue back a horn back on the bull...
Next stop was a visit to our local Shopping Centre.
Parked in the Car Park.
Got some bits from Wilkinson's.
(Nice wind chime for the garden)
You still have to wear facemasks.
Some wasn't, glad I was.
I won some nibbles off a website "Too Good To Go."
I picked up the nibbles from Cafe Nero.
Back home.
When we put the bags on the kitchen table.
Hubby slammed the bag from Homebase on the floor....
Oh dear, I looked in the bag, the lid of the vanish came off and the whole bag contained white vanish......
Unpacked the bag from Cafe Nero.
Now to put the tea in the oven for later on.
I actually won a lucky bag from Waitrose for £5.
(Will collect that later)
Tea is served.
Later on, to collect my Waitrose order.
Brings my lucky bag back.
Our kids and I enjoyed Sushi for the first time.
Quick read of the newspaper.
 After watching 2 more episodes of "Hotel Inspector", it was off to a nice inviting bed!
