Plants & Pants!

 I'm no angel, but I've spread my wings a bit - Mae West
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Hubby's back is giving him problems...
A little rub helped!
Extra warm hug and brew helped.
Breakfast.
Both kids were at home today.
I still opened their bedroom windows.
Dressed.
Gave out sloppy wet 💋💋💋
On goes those big big sunglasses.
On goes the Summer Coat.
Let the fun start....
No sighting of the Lambo today.
Nice view of Rolls Royce with the gold lady on top of the Bonnet instead...
Blue skies and it was getting warm!
Finished in one piece.
Now to take a little ride in Sexy Beast.
I got some things for the Birthday Cake I am making for my youngest son's Birthday next week and some nice reduced items!
Still have to prove my age!
Now for some cold coffee..
The temperature is going up when I got home.
Hubby's new pants arrived and more plants for me was delivered!
Before I put the shopping away.
I cleaned out the fridge, and sorted out all the food in there!
Looking a lot better now!
Puts all the food away.
Feeds the birds.
Waters the plants.
Repots the plants that came earlier.
I received my P45 from my old Cleaner job.
Time for lunch!
I find out my new trainers I bought last year, that I can actually fit into now!
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
Once I turned on my lights, I sat on the bench in the park in the shade. One parent didn't like it and had to sit on the bench further up.
Now for the fun to start!
One learner driver nearly ended up with a cracked windscreen, as my lollypop stick was in the middle of the road. It looked the Driving Instructor slammed on the brakes!
Then another car failed to stop on that side, and my stick nearly went BONG BONG on his car roof when he went past!
One Elderly gentleman had to slam his brakes on as my lollypop stick was in way of going further. I could hear the gums banging when I crossed over the road, and when I returned back to the pavement. I put my hand up to say thank you for stopping....
What a afternoon!
Back home for a suck on a lolly!
My neighbour's son had some spare flowers left over at work.
(Good job I have 3 bags of compost
&
some pots!)
Tea is served.
Now to repot as many plants as I can before it gets dark!
I ran out of compost and pots!!
I still had plants left and some plants coming in the post tomorrow!
Back out tomorrow to get more pots and compost!
The old sofa was put out for collection.
By 9.45pm I had finished watering the plants I had planted...
I was so tired.....
Gave hubby a back rub to help with the pain......
Let's hope the sunshine carries on tomorrow....
