Being Spoilt!

What is too silly to be spoken can be sung -
 Pierre de Beaumarchais
Welcome to my Sunday love 💓
Nice bit of adult time....
Then it was breakfast with brew.
Thermal vest goes on.
Off to see my parents with more flowers.
I hope that gold-digging brother doesn't take anything else off my parent's grave!
Then to pick up kids as we are having a meal out.
(Postponed from last Sunday)
We were 10 minutes late due to traffic....
Table was set ready.
Gravy and veggies.
My beef dinner!
Yum yum.
Drove home, dropped one son off.
We had to get more compost, the nearest place was B&Q.
More compost and flowers off the reduced stand.
Hubby was tired after driving to and from the meal, so he went off for a nap.
I carried on doing some more gardening for 2 hours.
Garden still looking a bit empty.
I'm sure I will get time for more gardening during the upcoming Easter Holidays..
(If it doesn t snow!)
After that big meal at dinnertime.
Time for something not so big....
Then I had hot shower.
All the dry washing was took upstairs,
(I will be sorting that out tomorrow!)
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
Once that was done.
I looked inside today's newspaper.

Getting Lots Of Help From Vick!

One way to help the weather make up its mind is to hang out washing - Marcelene Cox
Welcome to my Sunday (Not giving any) 💓
Only woke up once during the night.
That Lavender Pillow Spray I had for my Birthday knocked me straight out.
The Strange Dreams about Royal Mail started again.
Once I woke up, all the windows got opened throughout the house.
Brew with Breakfast.
I put the coffee machine on abit later.
(I was no mood to get up just yet)
I enjoyed a hot strong coffee..
Before I fell asleep again.
Hubby went off for a walk to fetch the newspaper and post our son's PCR test.
When he came back, I had found the need to get dressed.
Puts lots of Vic on to help with blocked nose.
The sun is out.
The washing from earlier, went out on the line.
I finished off the soup.
Afterwards carried on doing some gardening.
Hubby loaded up his car with the garden waste, and took a trip to the council tip.
I made us some cups of tea, and waited for his return.
It was nice to enjoy some Vitamin D.
Hubby put the meat in the oven.
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
We had a roast pork roast dinner.
(too slow with the camera this time)
Later on, hubby took a Covid test ...
His was negative.
Next go was mine.
The second line appeared before it chance for the first to appear!

Trying To Brake Like A Flintstone!

Nobody works as hard for their money as the person who marries it - Elbert Hubbard
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
This week is going to be fun with me dodging the rain showers.....while doing my lollipop job 🍭
Warm hug with brew.
I gets up the kids ready for school.
I chose not to wear the sexy lumo trousers, as rain wasn't coming in until the afternoon.
I gave out those wet sloppy 💋💋💋
Then out I go..
Those big big sunglasses came out once more.
It was a bit quiet on the roads.
I still wore my winter coat and winter coat.
Tree pic.
This is where the fun starts....
Some teenagers were just walking across the road into moving traffic and not using me!
The woman driver who has failed to stop in the mornings, and found out why she is not stopping!
She was coming up the High Street, when I was in the middle of the road.
She attempted to come to a stop...
The noise of screeching metal to metal was so loud, she just about stopped.
(No brake pads to rely on!)
I'm surprised she didn't use her feet to stop the car!
I didn't see the lambo today :(
Some car drivers put their hand up when they go under my lollypop stick....
I might have to add blue lights and music to my lollipop stick, car drivers might STOP!
I finished just about in one piece.
Back home.
Quick coffee with apple.
Then it's time to load up Henry into Sexy Beast.
Off to do some more cleaning...
It being so warm, I was on the water not coffee.
Once I finished and on the way back home.
The rain started!
I had some hot soup for lunch.
I was in half a mind to wear my sexy lumo trousers for the second part of doing my lollipop job 🍭
Rain was forecasted all afternoon.
I wasn't going to risk getting wet.
So on they went.
Blue skies everywhere.
Until the last ten minutes it was sunshine.
Then the rain came down until I finished!
I finished in one piece but wet!
I chatted to my friend without his dog, as his dog doesn't like the rain.
I said goodbye to my friend and back home I go.
The muffins my son made in his cooking lesson at school↓
Quick coffee with crumpets.
Now back out with some great 70s hits..
I get in.
I have a blue bucket and blue mop head.
But no pole to attach the mop head!
 The polish also was delivered.
No Method polish either!
I hope this smells nice or I will get it in the neck on Friday after I have used it polishing the house in the morning!
I changed the red mop head on my mop.
Pity it the new one doesn't screw properly on!
I loaded up my skip and off I go..
I went over by a little...
(No chance of gettin paid for it!)
Back on the road with some nice music to listen and sing along with!
There was a nice rainbow for me when I got home.
Nice bit of tea made by hubby.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
