Making The Most Of The Rays!

There is no such thing as a little garlic - Arthur Baer
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
I slept a lot better last night \o/
(I must be getting better!)
Taking another test tomorrow.
Now for brew with breakfast.
No sloppy wet one for hubby yet.
He went off to work.
I went back to sleep....
Later on the spur of energy came back!
The sun is shining.
Coffee machine went on..
As did the breadmaker and soup maker.
Time to enjoy some rays....
I moved all the windmills about the garden.
I gave the birds of the garden some bread and filled up their water bath.
I goes back inside.
Then I have honey delivery.
The Postman delivered my balloons for Mother's Day and wanted some biscuits for the dog over the road.
(I don't think he noticed the big red cross on the front door)
I didn't have no dog friendly biscuits to give him.
He then remembered I am still suffering from Covid, and quickly disappeared. 
The bread was ready.
Now to try some of that lovely soup I just made.
I spoke to hubby.
Then I remembered to write out next door's neighbour's Birthday Card.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Tea at 3.
Next door's son came round to say he will be moving his van soon.
(My hubby normally parks there)
I said "No problem."
(Hubby is parking behind Sexy Beast on the drive) 
Puts the food in the oven.
Hubby comes back home with the newspaper and next door's magazine.
He goes round with card and magazine to see our next door neighbour.
Tea is ready.
Next I ordered some groceries from Waitrose.
We have run out of nearly everything except bread!
If I hadn't had Covid I would have done a little bit of shopping at Co-op or Lidl.
Hey Ho, if I can't treat myself to Lentil Noodles when I can?????
It was getting dark by 7pm, so no point get the food delivered between 7pm - 8pm tomorrow.
Complete darkness out there.....👻👻
7am - 8am tomorrow morning instead.
Hubby and kids will be here to put the groceries in the shopping bag outside.
(I hope)
