Back To Reality!

There are two types of people: those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am,"and those who walk into a room and say,
"Ah, there you are." - Frederick Collins 
Welcome to my Sunday love Lie-in 💓
Made full use of that bed!
Now slip into the↓↓
Then for some....↓
Followed by↓↓
Now to use the lovely shower.....
That's better!
Nice views from our bedroom windows!
Now to go down for breakfast.
While we were waiting to seated, the woman who was well pissed last night, looked me up and down. I just returned her stare when we sat down!
Breakfast is served!
Where are the beans?????
Once I had finished my third cup of coffee.
(They used Full Fat Milk, as I was worried I had to fetch my pint of milk from my bedroom)
Back to the bedroom to pack and hear my Birthday Dedication on the radio...
As for this special Birthday of mine...
The Hawaii Five 0 Intro was playing in the back ground....
All packed up and ready to leave.
Hubby paid the bill.
We loaded up the car and went for a walk down to the pond.
Then back home we went.
Cake and balloons were ready for tomorrow.
Once we unpacked.
Back out in Sexy Beast. 
There was still queues for petrol, so I couldn't get to check my tyres.
On the way to the garden Centre,
My Birthday Request was read out again.
They played a great song...
(which is at the end of this blog post)
I got some plants for me, and some for my parent's grave.
Now for a look around...
After I got my plants, I nipped into Co-op to get some reduced veg for the soup this week.
Next onwards to see my parents.
I hope they like the daffodils I put on their grave.
Back home.
I gave my daffodils some water.
Soup maker was put on....
Coffee time.
Soup was ready!
Once the tumble drier had finished.
We sorted out the dry washing.
Not before the washing machine had to go back on again!
Hubby sorted out the tea for tonight.
I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
We had a nice Roast Chicken Dinner.
As normal I was late taking a photo of it!
My presents and cards are building up!
Everything was put back into Sexy Beast.
As it might be my Birthday, but it is also back on that Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
We caught up with 
"Dragon's Den"
Sleep Tea.
Back to our warm bed..

 It works better if you plug it in - Sattinger's Law
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug to start the Hump with.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
On goes 1 winter hat with one glove.
I turned on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
Now for the fun to start....🍭
Couple of cars had to be "Boing"
One car driver shouted at me after I stopped at him, and was walking back to my side of the road.
"You have stopped me twice this week!" He laughed and drove off.
He gave me a thumb when he went past five minutes later.
I was talking to someone about the red BMW from yesterday, when the actual red BMW went past me, and the driver gave me a look!
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
More Christmas Decorations added.
Now to get yesterday's blog wrote.
I thought it would only take a hour, all the way to lunch it took!
Hubby had his boxset come.
Out I go.
1 winter hat and one glove.
Walked up the road to turn on my lights.
Then back down to talk to my 2 friends.
No low lying sun this afternoon.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift!
Oh dear,one sporty tin can with a hair dryer as an exhaust was going to blast past me.
However he didn't succeed.
Out comes the stick and he had to slam the brakes on. Afterwards, he tried to get up the revs, and failed.
I was given two Christmas presents.
Just 5 minutes from the end of shift, I was two children over, when a car appeared to come out of a side road:
Incoming car not stopping!
So I had to put out my hand to stop the kids from crossing over to the other side of the road, as the car just sped past us in the middle of the road!
I was glad I made sure the kids were safe and didn't get run over!
Finished in one piece at the end of my shift.
Back home I go.
Time for a brew.
What is behind the Advent Door today?
I got tea on the go.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet 💋
Tea is served.
Afterwards we nipped out to spend that voucher....
Nice big casserole dish going....↑
Got the rest of the Christmas things we needed, as I expect by next Wednesday, you couldn't get a Christmas Pudding for love or money!
Back home to unpack it all.
Now to look in the newspaper.
Hubby had a car with a electronic handbrake.
Until the car rolled off the kerb down the road while we dropping off our kids at Scout Meeting.
Lots of adults had to try and stop the car from going any further.
After that, he got a car with a manual handbrake!
