How Do You Do It?

Writing is like sex.First you do it for love,then you do it for your friends,and then you do it for money - Virginia Woolf
Welcome to my Tuesday...
Looks like I will be needing my rain mac today...
 I enjoyed my warm hug and tea in bed.
Before everyone left the house, they all enjoyed sloppy 💋💋💋
Once I loaded up the dishwasher,
It was coffee and vitamin C time!
 Followed by a early lunch↓
 With the rain mac on,
Time to enjoy the rain!
 Going a different way to work,
It had its dangers.
Two blind bends...
Good job the car horn was invented!
I finally arrived in one piece.
A quick glance at the newspaper↓
 It is Gerry Marsden's 77th Birthday 🎈 today.
(I have put one of my favourite videos of his at the end of this blog post.Enjoy!)
 Found another item in the car park↓
 While singing along with Gerry,
I looked across the fields of fun↓
  The rain eased my red face when I got back to my car.
I had to deal with the rain, blind bends and drivers doing only 35mph on the way home.
At least I had some music to sing along with!
I'm home!
 I enjoy a much needed coffee and nibble↓
 Then I go off to the Happy Place Of Work.
I realised it is my 5th Anniversary of working there....\o/
 The sun came out when I got back home...
 I did a early tea↓
 I had to go to the Town Hall to join a Focus Group on an updated Tenant's Handbook
 Pity I couldn't take them home↓
 I took my non-caffine fruit flavoured tea bags to drink along with a bit of cake!
 When I left the meeting,
I bumped into some Councillors I knew.
I had a quick catch up on things.
Finally got back home...
Now to work with some excellent music to sing along with↓
When I got back,
We caught up with Bake Off.
I hope I don't have a wet Hump tomorrow 🐪

Wow, Looking Good After 10 Years!

Don't wait for the storms of your life to pass. Learn to dance in the rain. - Steve Rizzo
We had such a long lie-in...
We missed "Sounds of the 60s"!!!! 
Oh dear, that is two weeks of shows I have to catch up with... 
While we were sleeping, we missed some of the Storm Hannah.......
We had a late cup of tea in bed.
Lots of hugs and kisses followed....
Then we got up...
The wind was getting that bad,
It was shutting the windows!
I looked out of my front door and saw that Storm Hannah had visited and left a mess!
 Oh dear!
I had to tidy that up before we went out...
Now out for a little ride...↓

The wind nearly blew off my hat and nearly blew my skirt up.
I got some nice stuff from Home Bargains for the garden..
 Next stop was to get some veg from Lidl↓

We were blew back to the car....
We got back to the house..↓
 Once we emptied the car,
Had a late lunch,
We went back out to↓
 Got more things for the garden.
It started to rain....
So all the plants had a little drink.
I found some photos of my front garden,
When I moved in 10 years ago...
This is a real eyesore↓
*It has took 10 years to get it looking nice!*
Tomorrow we are changing what is down the path by the Pear tree↓↓
It got that cold the heating had to go on.
We had a light evening meal.
Time for another movie to watch...
I checked the Birthdays.
