Anyone Want A Napkin?

 A footnote is like running downstairs to answer the doorbell on your wedding night - John Barrymore
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
It's going to get warm later....
Time to do some Heardles...
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Breakfast with Brew Time!
Now to water the plants in the garden.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before he left to go to work.
I enjoyed a quick coffee.
Younger son was running late for work.
I got into Sexy Beast to drop him off. 
Next stop was B&Q to get a Hanging Basket bracket.
I had to pay for the fittings for it, separate!
Got my newspaper from Asda, and they had trouble with scanning the voucher!
It is getting now really warm.
Gets home to drop off the bits.
Hopefully it will be put up this weekend!
Now to load up the cake, balloons and present/card for our friend's 50th Birthday.
Gave Joe a bit hug and wished him a Happy Birthday!
 Balloons were put on show.
The cake was put in the fridge for later!
The napkins I bought yesterday, was put too good use!
I went down to see if my 3rd prize was dropped off in the hall.
No it wasn't.
The Council Clerk is going to track it down for me.
Now back home I go.
Time for coffee!
I had the ribbon arrive, ready for the Bake Off in a few times.
(And some nice material)
Time for some light lunch.
Then it was time to blog up to the time my hubby comes home, for a sloppy wet one 💋
My son has finished his massage course :)
We had light tea as it was getting too hot!
While hubby and son went food shopping.
I looked into today's newspaper.

Sits in the garden to enjoy a lolly as it is still quite warm!
Hubby and son comes back from doing the shopping.
I help him put it away.
Sleep Tea time.
Do to it being so hot in the bedroom.
I slept on the sofa.
Roll on the weekend 🎈

Reaching Half A Century!

 “At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” - George Orwell
Welcome to my 50th Birthday Party 🎈
Time to open the cards and presents!
Now to get dressed.
(thermal vest goes on)
Then it's Breakfast and Brew time!
I have 2 lovely cards and presents off my two sons.
Now to leave the house....
I gives hubby a wet sloppy one before I leave.
Two winter hats and big gloves go on.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
The High School has got a TE day.
The other 3 schools are still open.
I had lots of Happy Birthdays greetings.
It might have been quiet for traffic,
still got cars doing the Limbo under my stick and just looking up to see if I can hit their car roof as they go under....
BOING,BOING,BOING went my stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
Picks up newspaper on the way home.
Dropped off the newspaper.
Now back out.
Coffee & Chat time.
Both of my friends were there,
(Who I chat to in the afternoon!)
More lovely cards and hand cream :)
Chat, coffee and toast :)
Once finished we all said to each other.
"See you later Alligator!"
Back home I go.
Now to put all the cards on display!
My younger brother dropped in a Birthday card through the letter box on Saturday.
He must have forgot my first name, as he just wrote Sister in my card!
Then back out for Round 2.
It forecasted rain while doing it.
On goes the sexy lumo trousers.
On goes the boots, two hats, and waterproof gloves.
I turn on my lights, and walk back to my two friends waiting.
Time for a Rabbit....
As soon as I say "Goodbye!"
It starts to rain.
On goes the hood.
I was crossing a dog walker over the road.
When the dog wouldn't go any further, the woman wasn't looking where the lead was, and tripped over the lead, straight on her face she went, I was in the middle of the road.I helped her up.
"The dog is frightened of your big stick,"She said dragging the dog past me.
I replied,"Most car drivers are frightened of my big stick as well!"
Lots of BOINGs been given out as some cars were just driving under my stick.
At least I finished in one piece.
Still raining!
Back home.
Now to get ready for the meal later on.
Hubby comes back for a wet one.
Time for rain mac....
3 Mixed Grills.
(I had sweet potato fries)
1 Lasagne.
I was too full for dessert.
The Kids still had their desserts.
We got home.
