Ralph? I Know Of Another Ralph.....

Behind every successful man stands a woman. And behind her stands his wife - Fay Weldon
 Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’ͺ
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to leave the house.
Fetches the newspaper on the way.
Sees my gold diggering brother at the Petrol Station.
My mobile phone decides to play up when needed.
One driver all over the road, goes past, 
and he has his mobile phone stuck to his ear when we went past him.
Then he overtook us,
(started to slow right down)
He slowed down even more coming up to the Road Traffic Island, just to make it bit more amusing, two cars jumped into the space that was left between us and him.
We parked in the car park, and now to look for some bargains.
We went into The Works, and picked up two boxes of charitable Christmas cards for next year. We had a look in the Craft Shop.
Next to look in the Garden Centre.
I got a few bits.
Nice glasses pity I don't drink alcohol!
Now went for a much needed coffee.
I had a Americano with Almond Milk, 
As they don't do full fat milk!
Now for lunch!
Now to walk it off!
I met a dog called Ralph and had a yak with his owner.
The only other Ralph I knew was:
Now back on the road, home.
Gets back home.
Unpacks the small amount of things we got.
Now for a very strong cup of coffee...
My son's Air Frier came out to do their tea of chips and fishcakes.
We were still full up from lunch.
We watched a great film...
Now to catch up with some Christmas Specials of Top Of The Pops.
Then onto 1978 Christmas Special.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Then a quick look in today's newspaper.
Chas Hodges was an English musician and singer who was the lead vocalist of the musical duo Chas & Dave.

Can't Find It Again!

Life is a cement trampoline - Harold Nordberg
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice hug with brew.
Opens the curtains....
The sun is out again \o/
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I leave.
On goes those big big sunglasses...

On goes the summer coat
(With jacket underneath)
Puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
A 21 reg blue skoda went speeding past me down the road, the car in front of it, suddenly braked, the skoda braked that fast, the whole car shuddered!
A woman driver went under my stick and looked up to see how high it was!
I actually got to stop the speedy while Tesla that has been failing to stop for weeks!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I gets my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
I phoned the council to see if I got permission to get my loft insulated and boarded.
I was second in the queue, 36 minutes wait time.
I moved up to first, then it changed to 16 minutes.
Finally got answered.
They hadn't received the form I put into the Town Hall last Monday.
I was well pissed off!
Get another form and send it in via email they said!
I phoned hubby to tell him the bad news!
I went to answer the door, and my son's mobile phone cable was in the way of my foot, I just about saved myself!
Got more stuff for my son's cake he is making for Friday at school.
Second coffee of the morning so far!
A yellow lorry is parked over the drive!
I ask the lorry driver, "Why he can't park over the otherside of the road...?"
"Because of the straps!"
I goes and gives my neighbour his magazine.
Has a chat for 20 minutes.
A member of the Housing department drops off another form for me to fill in.
Then I  write yesterday's blog up to the dinnertime.
I was expecting another parcel from DPD to be delivered here.
(My son was here, if they attempted to deliver it here)
Off out to part two.
While going out of the road, a DPD van turns in.
(I might be lucky this time and get it delivered!)
By the time I get down to my job, the parcel is going back to the depot!
I put on the summer coat.
Then go and get a ice lolly.
After paying for the it, I turned round, and not seeing the pushchair behind me, nearly fell over it!
Another trip I avoided!
Puts on my lights on.
Now to enjoy some vitamin D with ice lolly.
I chatted with my friend until it was time for me to start for the afternoon fun 🍭
I put my stick out and lowered it.
One Audi was speeding up the street, and had to slam on his brakes...
After that most were stopping on my side, different story on the other side of the road!
At least I finished in one piece!
Back home for a much needed coffee!
Kettle put on.
Waters the plants in the garden.
Fills out form ready to send a copy of it via email tomorrow.
The tea goes in the oven....
Nice big hug off hubby when he comes home.
Dished up the tea.
Quick look in today's newspaper...

Now to go and get a magic bag...

Now out to get another Magic Bag.
Now for a bit of Sleep Tea...
Let's hope I have a better day tomorrow
