What Did You Call Me?

 Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
The sun is out.
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Now to leave the house.
Dropped off son at work.
Now to visit the Doctors.
I was in there for under 5 minutes.
The Doctor gave me some tablets.
I have to wait for the letter from the hospital.....
Afterwards goes and sees our son at work.
Gets some nice things and enjoyed a coffee.
Then off to Droitwich.
To drop off 5 boxes of books for the Droitwich Lions book Sale.
Good Deed #1 
We decided to visit Bromsgrove and have a look around the Charity Shops.
We parked up.
Looked in one Charity Shop.
The man in charge had changed the CD in the Charity Shop.
The Shadows came on,
My air guitar came out too:
He tried to catch me out with the next song....
"Jimmy Jones & Good Timin' "I said after a few notes came on!
Next Charity Shop, it all kicked off.
But first, I found a good LP↓
I walked to the back of the shop.
An old man on a disability scooter was trying to reverse.
I went, "Bip, Bip,Bip."
"If you think you are being funny, your're not!"He shouted at me.
"Only trying to help!" I shouted back.
"Cheeky Bitch,"He shouted at me in front of everyone.
My husband, said to him,"I beg your pardon!" 
Everyone in the shop stopped and wondered who he was calling that!
I pipped up and said, "Me!"
"No Friday Feeling off him," I said.
Lots of looks at him as he left.
I said to everyone when I left the shop,
"If I ever get that bad, pass me the gun or the pillow!"
Everyone laughed!
On to the next Charity Shop.
Great single I found.
(I already got this one)
Time to go home with the little bargains we got.
Back home.
Light lunch.
The bread tasted yuk!
On the bird table it went.
One bargain went up in the window.
I learnt that Michael Redfern had passed away.
He appeared in the OXO adverts for 16 years.
Here are few of them↓
Tea was put in the oven for later.
Helps write the shopping list out for tomorrow.
Tea is served.
Afterwards a quick look in the newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1965:
The Beatles - Help 
UK No.1 on this day in 1989:
Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers - Swing The Mood
Got the shopping trolley ready for tomorrow's trip to Droitwich.
Is it going to bargains, bargains, bargains?
Sleep Tea time.
Now off to enjoy more Friday Feeling in bed 🎈

Switching Hats & Spinning Plates

If you are too busy to develop your talents, you are too busy.

Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
I heard on the radio, 
It was Best Teacher was trending on Twitter.
My favourite teacher was Mr Irwin, who taught me at First School, back in 1979!  
Good t-shirt time to be put on..
 First Hat of the Day...
It didn't help, I tried to juggle a box of nails and a box of picture hanging hooks...
Now to move about the pictures in my bathroom!
 I needed some positivity after that fun!
I lost out on a matching bedroom set on Sunday by 80p on Ebay. 
Surprise Surprise the seller relisted it again.
I gets in contact with him, he puts it on a buy it now price on what I bidded on Sunday and I won it!
Now to sort out a price with younger brother to fetch it.... 
My brother came back with a quote £10 higher than the same quote, he gave me on Sunday.I put some quotes out for other Man With A Van services. 
Liquid Lunch time↓
 My friend who I used to see on a Tuesday, phoned and we had a little catch up before I had to leave for work.
Gets out of the house and look what was in the way!
 I knock on the driver's window,
"Could you just move down abit please?"
I ask.
He looks around his curtain and says,
"I'm moving now!"
 Fingers crossed no rain
 Quick peek at the newspaper↓
 Hopefully no rain clouds↓
 Just as I get into work, my dad phones and says he has run out milk!
I tell him to phone the younger brother, as hubby and I are at work!
Hat Number 2.
Dish up Dinners
After I finished, 
I had a lovely red face!
Plenty of good tunes to sing along with on the way home!
 My brother is still arguing over the quote he gave me.Then he goes back to the earlier quote from Sunday!
I did get some good news however.
I have been given more hours with one of other jobs \o/
While I was at one of those other jobs, the carer for my dad phoned. She was still grumbling why my hubby sold the car to someone else.....and not to her.
I repeated what she told my hubby last Friday..
"If someone else is interested and wants the car, let them have it!"
Which we did. She wasn't forthcoming with a deposit for it,so we sold it to someone else! 
Cooking Evening Meal Hat
Mince, garlic, spinach, red onions all cooked up and put in a toasted Pitta Bread.
Then off to do my final job of the day with some cracking music to sing-a-long with!
When I got back home, 
I had missed the heavy rain we had.

 My younger brother comes round with his wife to collect the money to pick up the stuff I won off Ebay.
By the time they left,
I couldn't find the 
Blogging Hat to wear! 
Now to enjoy the rest of Hump Day in bed🐪
