When I Walk In The Room, I Just Have To ....

 If at first you don't succeed, cheat. - Red Buttons
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Warm hug with Brew.
Thermal vest goes on.....
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
I had to park elsewhere as the hall was closed.
It was quite warm, so no need for gloves!
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get ready to roll...🍭
Cars and vans failing to stop!
Some have to do emergancy stops!
Some parents are still chancing it by crossing into moving traffic instead of using me!
At least I survived in one piece!
Nips into Co-op to get some bits....
Saves £6.05 on my shopping bill :)
Next onto Screwfix.
Henry the Hoover!
While in the queue, I here a great song playing, So I start singing along, the man looks around at me....
He must want to join in I thought!
I collects my order.
The £5 off my order helped!
Next to pick up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
While I was waiting, a great song came on, and I started to sing-along...
The two men in front started to look around to see where the singing was coming from.
They looked at me, and I kept on singing along!
"Your happy!" I was told when I paid for my things.
"I am now after doing some singing!" I replied.
Just before I left, I joined in with Belinda Carlisle
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Empties the tumble drier.
Loads up the dish washer and puts it on.
Sorts out the food in the fridge.
Recycling get put in the green bin.
(Our 3 recycling bins are being emptied tomorrow) 
Now for some coffee.
I though writing yesterday's blog post would only take an hour, it took longer!
Right up to lunch, and I still hadn't published it!
Light lunch.
Now for part two....
I was singing along with a great song on the way to work.
Such a Big Tune, it was repeated four times it was good...
The song?
At the end of this blog post...
It was warm enough to wear gloves!
Turned on my lights.
Got chatting to my two friends.
Just before I was due to start, I notice a Argos and Amazon van parking on the double yellow lines over the road where I was due to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Afternoon shift.
Still having problems with car drivers not stopping.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Time for a much needed brew!
I finished and published yesterday's blog post.
Now to get on with tonight's tea.
Opened a cupboard door, my oval dish fell out and broke into 3 bits!
It didn't help cutting open my finger while picking up one piece of it, blood everywhere!
Once it stopped, put a plaster on it, now to carry on with the tea.
It was ready before Hubby came home.
When he did come back from work, he had to warm his up in the microwave!
Four plates were empty!
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Jack Palance  was an American actor. Known for playing tough guys and villains, he was nominated for three Academy Awards, all for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, receiving nominations for his roles in Sudden Fear (1952) and Shane (1953), and winning the Oscar almost 40 years later for his role in City Slickers (1991).
He died on this day in 2006 aged 87. 
It's my late mum's 77th Birthday this Saturday.
I have ordered some balloons 🎈 for her birthday.
My good friend who passed away last May would have been 87 on Sunday.
I made him a Birthday Cake for his 78th Birthday.↓
I should a new CD arrive on Friday...↓
Plenty of singing along with this one!
We caught up with two episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991.
Oh dear, the fast forward button was used a lot.
Great number one in the second episode.
Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff.
Great cover version of the Tommy Roe number 1 hit from 1969↓↓↓
Out of all hits  Tommy Roe had.
I prefer this one↓
Now to move onto the one hit wonders of the 70s...
Sleep Tea Time.
Hopefully will be playing with the new brother tomorrow...

Circling That Important Date...

I'd rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate - George Burns
 Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’‹
Hug with a brew to start the day.
Hubby went and got the newspaper.
I went back to enjoy the kingsize bed...
Later on I had a lovely coffee in bed with a quick read of the newspaper.
Mike Maxfield (born in Manchester, England) is an English songwriter and guitarist, who came to fame as a member of The Dakotas. He composed "Cruel Sea", a song which was first recorded by The Ventures . The Dakotas later recorded an instrumental version of the track, which was one of the group's biggest hits. 
He is 77 years old 🎈

Now to face the world!
I go outside for some fresh air.
It was so warm, all the windows got opened.
I had my letter to tell me to shield until March 31st.
Not long to go until I have the 1st dose of the Covid-19 vaccine...
Not long until my Birthday either 🎈
I chopped some peppers,onions, mushrooms, and garlic ready for tonight's tea of Smoked Haddock fillets with cheddar and mustard sauce.
Now for lunchtime.
We had to guess the year while having lunch.
I have added own selection of hits.....↓
Then I got on writing yesterday's blog post.
I enjoyed listening to lots of Guy Mitchell songs like↓ 
Time for Tea at 3

Tea is Served.
Lethal Weapon 2 to watch↓
Great funny film :)
Sleep tea time.
We watched the newspaper review.
Hubby will be getting the Daily Mirror tomorrow as well as our normal newspaper and neighbour's magazine.
"Why?" You ask....
Cold Cases of the 60s and 70s...↑↑↑
Let's hope we have a dry Hump tomorrow🐫

I picks up the newspaper.
Someone didn't fancy sticking to the speed limit of 30 m.p.h and done double that,speeding on down the road. 
More singing along...
