Putting That Bikini Away For Now!

Welcome to my Hump of the Week.
The sun was out yet again today \o/
It looked like bikini weather.....👙
No not just yet....
I had to keep the jumper  on under my sexy lumo coat..
My morning shift of Job 1 was a mixture of bedlam, madness, and chaos....
One parent had the nerve to park on the Zig Zag lines.
I told him one not park there.
Blank look at me.
Second time of asking.
Daggers were drawn and he drove off.
Hubby is feeling so much better.
(He is bored and can't wait to go back to work tomorrow!)
My youngest is son is taking part in
Year 7's Chef of the Year at school tomorrow.
His 3 course meal is of course......
Chinese!

Searching High & Low

Welcome to Feel Good Friday.
Henry came out for a quick play
I was on the hunt for some Sticky Rice Flour.
As my last order didn't turn up :(
The flour is the important part of the dessert for my son's entry in "The Chef of the Year" competition at school, this Thursday.
He tried to a make the dessert with rice flour....
It didn't taste right...
Fingers crossed some turn up BEFORE Thursday.
One cheeky parent attempted to park on the zig zags at hometime.
I pointed to the zig zags lines...
She was trying to spin a story together...
(She gave up and moved off..)
Now to enjoy this Friday Feeling with ......

Spice Up Your Life!

Welcome to my Thursday.
Thursday with a difference!!
Hubby off work, kids at school!
We skipped off to Webb's.
Nice coffee there.
Back to the hospital next week.
Urgent appointment to lose some wisdom!
More coffee...
The smell of roast lamb dinner...
Must have it...
Lovely, after I finished the final mouthful. 
James didn't finish in the top four in the "Chef Of The Year!".
He received a engraved wooden spoon for his trouble.
I said to him:
 "There must have been something the matter with the Judge's taste buds. 
As I enjoy a bit of spice!"

Reaching For Those Big Big Sunglasses!

Back on the wobbly work wheel
Wow the sun was out nice and early.
Quite warm,not yet warm enough to strip some layers of clothing off!
Enjoyed a late breakfast at Webb's.
Had to help James's get all his items packed up for his 3 course meal he is making tomorrow for his "Chef Of The Year" final.
Nothing to eat after Midnight,
As I am ready for my operation at Worcester Hospital early tomorrow!

Having A Taste Of Morocco

Woo hoo we have reached Sunday.
Cup of tea and a nibble in bed, can't be bad!
We bought our meat order for the next two months.
Trying to fit it all in the freezer, that was so much fun fun fun!
Bumped into an ex-co worker from my old JOB 2 again.
At a Community Open Day at the Redi-Centre.
It feels like I am being Stalked!
Watched my son practice making his 3 course meal for "Chef Of The Year" for school.
He chose to do Moroccan themed  meals
The final is on Tuesday. 
He completed them all under 3 hours.
I did my share, by loading up the dish-washer!
