Going Round And Round!

Dancing with her was like moving a piano - Ring Lardner
 Welcome to my Tuesday 🍭
A warm hug to start the day!
Brew with Breakfast.
The tea tasted RANK, as the water filter was running out in the kettle...
I will change the filter when I get back.
Thermal vest went on....
While hubby was getting dressed.
Time to reveal Sexy Beast.
That had been a early frost.
So no scraping for me!
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy one.
 When I got to the car park, the entrance gate was locked, reversed Sexy Beast, and had to go through the no entrance gate instead.
Two winter hats and warm gloves went on.
Locked Sexy Beast, zipped up my coat, then dropped one of my gloves on the floor.
I'm not undoing my coat, let's play try to pick up glove with my big stick....
While waiting to put on my lights.
Someone asked: 
"If I cross the kids here?"
"No, further down the road,"I replied.
Once I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
My big stick and me kept turning invisible!
Felt like the Invisible lady.....
One car braked hard on the otherside of the road, the car behind nearly smacked into the car in front!
Plenty of BOINGs were given out!
I don't feel wearing blue flashing lights and music will stop those car drivers who fail to stop!
Anyhow I finished one piece!
I had a chat with my friend with his dog for 10 minutes.
I went to the Petrol Station to get some fuel.
The Petrol filler cap kept going round and round.
Not coming off. I asked one of the staff in the petrol station to help. Still going round and round!
I left with getting fuel...
I will see if hubby has the magic know-how how to get it off!
Picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the Coffee Machine.
Tried to look on You Tube to see if there is a way to get the petrol cap undone....
Nope was the answer.
Time for a much needed coffee!
Then onto writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done.
I finished off the soup....
I will make some more later.
Now for round 2.
I saw my friend again and had another chat for 10 minutes.
It didn't half feel cold.
The two hats went on, as well as warm gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now time for a rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for Round 2.
It was cloudy, so no low lying sun to worry about. So there was no excuse not to stop!
Two cars overtook a man on a bike, coming up the road. The white BMW realised at the last minute there was a pedestrian refuge island in the middle of the road.
He then had to drop behind the man on the bike!
I had to give out the normal BOINGs!
Finished in one piece!
Home Time.
I put the soup maker back on .
Put our tea in the oven.
Made the salad for when the tea is ready to be served up.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one.
He went out to look at my petrol cap.
Quick jiggle about, and it came off!
Magic hand saves the day!
 Now for tea.
Veggie Quiche with salad.
Now to watch another episode of:
Looked into today's newpaper.

Finally Getting Better At It!!!

When all else fails, and the instructions are missing - kick it. - Anon
Welcome to my Monday 👯
Nice big 💋, hug with brew!
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he went to work.
(He was getting the newspaper on the way)
I gave one son a sloppy wet 💋 before he went to school.
The other son is getting tested for Covid at 12.10,
So he is doing his school work from home until I drop him off later.
Unloaded and loaded the dishwasher.
Third time lucky for the baking bread.
Now for a much needed coffee.
Now to write two blog posts from the weekend.
Just published them just in time to drop off son at school to be tested.
I dropped him off near the school.
Now for some serious singing along in the car for a short drive...
(Which I have missed so much!) 
I picked him up after a short while.
The smell of bread was so nice when I got back home.
Fingers crossed when I opened the lid of the bread maker.
My son had some bread and it tasted so nice!
The way it is going, will have to do some more tomorrow as everyone will need it for sandwiches.
Light lunch.
One subject on the news....
I had a look through the magazines that came in the post.
I really miss my coffee and chat at Webbs :(
Now to watch 2 episodes of Top of The Pops from 1990.
Oh dear, I watched Steve Miller Band on this episode.
Now the next episode! 
I fast forwarded most of it, and actually watched the number one song!
I watched more the Eighties programme I taped off Sky Arts.It was all about the music videos in the 80s.
This episode was called: "Video Killed the Radio Star"
As soon as I heard a few seconds of one video.....I knew who it was and started singing along with it....
Tea at 3.
My son arrived late from school, as he had a covid test at to 3pm. Negative result.
He got into his red suit I bought for him last year for his end of year prom 2020.
It was cancelled due to Covid.
He must have a growth spurt as the jacket was a bit tight for him. Red does suit him!
He wants to me to find him another red jacket.
I have a quick search while I was making the tea.
Either not his size or far too expensive.
I will look again tomorrow...
I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 when he came back from work.
Stir Fry Time.
