Now For Some Real Coffee.....

Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year - Victor Borge.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Up at the normal time to do the Heardles.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew time.
Now to put on the thermal vest.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he left for work.
I had a normal coffee....
Then time to leave the house.
First stop was to get my newspaper.
Then off around the surrounding areas to drop of Christmas cards with my younger son.
Then to pick up my coffee machine.
Once we put it in Sexy Beast, we walked over to Lidl's.
It is one way out of the Lidl car park. Some car drove out of the car park and out of the wrong way, nearly crashing into a car going into the Lidl car park. The offending car driver, reversed back into the car park, went all around the car park and correctly turned right and looked at me when she went past me! 
Into Lidl's we went.
Pity I have already got a coffee maker.
Got some bits from Dunelm.
Now back home...
As I was out, my parcels were left under the garden table for me :)
Before I opened them,
 Lunch time.
Now to open my parcels and put them up in the garden!
Now to open the coffee machine box...
First coffee time!
Then got the tea on the go.
Hubby came home.
He had a sloppy wet one 💋
We had a Pasta meal with homemade Pasta Sauce.
(Ate up to quick for a photo!)
Now to look into today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1974: 
Mud - Lonely This Christmas.
UK No.1 on this day in 1991:
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody/ These Are The Days Of Our Lives.
US No.1 on this day in 1974:
Harry Chapin - Cats in the Cradle. 
We caught up with the Hotel Inspector.
Sleep Tea Time.
Now off to enjoy the 16 tog duvet....

No More Bumps In The Road Please!

Self-esteem is the reputation we acquire with ourselves                             - Nathaniel Branden

Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐫
I am hoping for a much better day than yesterday...I wish..
Hug and Brew time↑
As it was raining.
No daily walk until later.
Out in Sexy Beast instead
Comes back to give hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he goes to work.
The kids have one each as well 💋💋
Quick load up of the dishwasher.
Wipes down the surfaces of the kitchen.
Now for a much needed coffee
Look in the newspaper↓
Bruce  Springsteen  is an American singer, songwriter, and musician who is both a solo artist and the leader of the E Street Band. A native of the Jersey Shore, he received critical acclaim for his early 1970s albums and attained worldwide fame upon the release of Born to Run in 1975. During a career that has spanned five decades, Springsteen has become known for his poetic and socially conscious lyrics and lengthy, energetic stage performances. He has been given the nickname "The Boss".He has recorded both rock albums and folk-oriented works, and his lyrics often address the experiences and struggles of working-class Americans.
He is 71 years old 🎈
There was only light rain when I left the house.
There is nothing better than singing in heavy rain while driving...
It's a pity I didn't bring my rain mac now.
I had a quick look across the fields of fun
Yet another bad day...
When things are late, then everything goes wrong...
It was still raining when I got into Sexy Beast.
No sitting outside to eat my lunch↓
A good film came to watch at the weekend↓
Pulling my hair out on how Blogger has been updated. Half the time I can't load the pictures up and it is so slow....!
Finally got two blog posts published!
My younger brother phoned.
He has had some more paperwork from my late dad's Solicitor...
It concerns the fittings of my late dad's house.He is coming round to show me and get me to fill out it out. I am looking forward to filling out the feedback form on this Solicitor.
I am the forgotten sibling!  
The day gets even better when I get a text message saying my child maintenance is going down by £40. The review is in November, let's hope the ex-plum has paid off the nearly £1200 in arrears he owed. 
We are taking part in something run by the council...
30 Days of Fitness Challenge.
As soon as hubby came back. 
Back on the walking we go.
3 lengths of the road. We saw a Police Van come down, and go back up the road....
Now to fill it in:
Now to dish up the Pasta Bake for tonight's tea↓

Then I go to work...
Then we have a problem..
The key gets jammed in the padlock!
Then it starts to rain!
Youngest son comes along and hey presto!
The key is free!
Now to start work with a big tune↓
Once I get finished.
We catch up on Judge Rinder
With some sleep tea
Let's hope I don't have any more bumps in the road tomorrow!
