More Nice Liquid Lunch!

 If you haven't got anything good to say about anyone come sit by me - Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Welcome to my Tuesday 💪
Nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
I didn't have to cover up Sexy Beast last night.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The sun might be coming up.
Still wore 2 winter hats and big big gloves.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
My stick was nice and high, and a van went straight under it!
BOING!
Some cars on the otherside of the road had BOINGs as well!
There had cars slamming their brakes on as well!
Glad to have survived that one!
I walked down to the Post Office and sent off my letter to my Prison Pen Pal in the USA.
I told them at the counter, I prefer handwriting the letter, practice my handwriting!
Even if it costs me £2.25 each time.
I have wrote 6 pages this time, that should keep him busy for a bit!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Emptied all the bins in the house.
Now for coffee!
I got a response from the Customer Services on behalf of the CEO of Dunelm.
They are going to speed up the refund! \0/
I wrote yesterday's blog post up to lunch.
Homemade soup with homemade bread.
Now out for the afternoon shift.
I only put on one winter hat with lightweight gloves.
I got chatting with my friend who lost his hearing aid yesterday.
His neighbour found it on her wall.
I turned on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift 🍭
Oh dear, carrying on from this morning.
I lowered my stick, the car kept going and underneath it went.
BOING!
The cars are the otherside were not stopping either!
Some had to brake hard too!
At least I survived!
Hometime.
I enjoyed a much needed cup of brew.
 I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
We had some veggie meals from Lidl.
Not very filling at all.

I'm Not Backing Out!

 Pissing in his shoe keeps no man warm for long 
- Icelandic Proverb
Welcome to my Saturday Fun 🎈
It is the 8th anniversary of my mum passing away.
If it stops raining later, I might be able to drop in the balloons and lavender plants I bought last week.
Nice hug with a brew.
Breakfast.
Gets kids up.
Dressed.
Loaded up the new case into Sexy Beast's boot. 
The rain is in for the day by the looks of it.
Drops off son at his place of work.
The other son and me goes and sees Joe and Tracy. 
I try and sort out Tracy's sewing machine out.
I get out my sewing machine.
The coffee is flowing.
I bought a nice wall hanging and some coloured candles.
My youngest son bought a lucky bag.
Packed up sewing machine.
Thanked Joe and Tracy.
Back home to hang up the nice wall hanging.
My son had some nice things in his lucky bag.
My other part of my Aldi order had been delivered.\o/
I got out my felt book to see how much felt I needed for the felt wreath I made.
I used up more than 11 sheets of felt for mine!
It was still raining when we left do some more food shopping.
We picked up son from his work place.
We were trying to get out of the car park,
One car driver was coming in.
We couldn't back up as a car was behind us, and two other cars were waiting to get out as well.
 She got out of her car and said to us:
"I'm not reversing on to the main road!".
I rolled my eyes.
We couldn't reverse, and we just sat there.
She reversed a bit and then we could get out of the car park and go.
She had a silver van behind her trying to get into the car park as well.
We dropped one son off at home. 
First stop was Morrison's. Our son had to finish off neighbour's food shopping from Friday.
Nice drive out to Stratford's Waitrose.
Got the free Waitrose magazine and newspaper.
Got some bits for my son's cooking lesson for Monday.
Moving onto Stratford's Lidl.
Got more bits in there..
(Stocked up the garlic in the jar!)
Now for a nice drive back home in the rain.
Unloads the shopping.
I starts sorting out the dirty washing when my phone goes...
I won the £100 gift voucher to spend in Joe's shop.
*The nice wall hanging I bought was the item needed to buy to win the £100 gift voucher!*
I put the mixed colour pasta in the saucepan.
I fried up some mushrooms, spinach, and garlic.
Washing machine had been put on 3 times.
The tumble drier has now been up on.
Need to catch up with the Blog.

It's Finally Leaving!

Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away - Thomas Fuller
Welcome to my Tuesday 👻
Brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby is working from home today.
Gets the kids up to do their on-line learning.
Time to explore outside!
Nice cup of coffee to warm up with.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
Hubby went out at dinnertime to get the newspaper and soup.
Colin Vearncombe , known by his stage name Black, was an English singer-songwriter. He emerged from the punk rock music scene and achieved mainstream pop success in the late 1980s, most notably with the 1986 single "Wonderful Life", which was an international hit the next year.
He died on this day in 2016 aged 53.
Light lunch time.
I started chopping up things ready for tea tonight.
Tea at 3.
Oh dear the deaths in the UK have gone over  100,000 :(
We watch the Press Conference with Boris.
Dished up the Lamb Casserole.
I went outside to see if that snow has disappeared!
Hopefully I can give Sexy Beast a much needed ride tomorrow \o/.
Back on to season 2 of Narcos:Mexico.
While sipping on my Sleep Tea.
I nearly chocked on it, by one of the reviewers on the Sky Newspapers.
After discussing the figure of 100,000, she said, the people aged over 65 would have died anyway if it hadn't been for Covid!
I and others put their thoughts on Twitter about that disgusting comment.
I didn't want to hear anymore nasty comments.
It seemed she did more comments in the second part, the people of 65 would have died from flu instead of Covid!
I got some emails about more selections for the council elections in May.
I won't be putting my name down for no more selections.
Hump of the Week is back tomorrow 🐪
