Spooky.....

 One man's ways may be as good as another's but we all like our own best - Jane Austen
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Welcome to September!
Nice brew with warm hug.
Breakfast.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
I got dressed.
I went for a ride in Sexy Beast.
I got the newspaper and neighbour's magazine on the way.
I was nearly took out by a woman pulling out of her space and not signelling!
I had to brake, and shot her a look.
When I went past her afterwards, she still didn't signel out of her space!
Now to park in B3....
It just opened when I got in there.
I had a look about, and got two bargains for £18.
Put them in the Sexy Beast.
On the way to the coffee shop, I looked in Lakeland....
No Kenny the Kenwoods!
Nice, but no where to put it!
Time for coffee, chat and nibble!
Had a good yak!
Said goodbye to my friend.
Back home.
Unload time.
Collected younger son and off to another garden centre.
Nice.
Got more things for the garden.
Back home to unload it all!
I repotted all of the plants.
Added some more sea shells..
Light lunch.
More things to add to the garden...
Tea at 3.
More to be added later on.
Time to make the tea....
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
I gave my neighbour his magazine.
Time for tea.
No meat meal.
Rewatched the first episode of 9/11:One Day in America again, as we missed the first 10 minutes of it, last night.
We were all sitting down in the living room eating our tea, when someone walked across the floor boards in our bedroom.Three of us looked up at the ceiling....
Spooky as no one was up there! πŸ‘»
I caught up with today's newspaper before episode 2 and 3 starts.

Now to carry on watching episodes 2 and 3 of 9/11:One Day in America.
Sleep tea.
Hubby went to bed.

More Tea Vicar?

Intimacy is being seen and known as the person you truly are 
- Amy Bloom
Welcome to my Thursday🎈
No chance of a lie-in...
I enjoyed tea and hug in bed↓
 I gave hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹
He left the house of to work.
Now for me to leave the house!
 I played one of the CDs I bought yesterday.
(It didn't help it only have one cd in it instead of 2!)
 Just had to sing along↓
 
 It's getting warmer↑
I gets to the Hospital in no time.
The barrier is up so I don't have to pay to get out of the car park :) :)
I had a little look in the newspaper↓

I goes to the blood department.
First in the queue↓
  Soon in and out...
Out under the barrier...
(Saved myself £2.50!)
More singing to do...
Back home↓
 I got in contact with Vicar who is doing my dad's funeral.
(I gave him directions)
He arrived half an hour later.
He sat down on my sofa and looked about my Living Room..
"Haven't you got a lot of stuff!" He said.
I laughed and gave him his coffee.
I told  him we have met before twice.
I was at the Mother's Day Service at Tardebigge Church in 2014.
He was mentioning a Mother's poem,
I started to cry uncontrollably and got up and left the packed church.
(It was under 12 months since my mum passed away)
That was the talking of the school when I appeared at work, next day.
Some people doesn't  doesn't understand losing a parent can be upsetting.
The next time I saw the vicar he was doing my younger brother's wedding, in August 2014.
I told him I won't be at my dad's funeral,
(Because of my Arsehole brother)
   I don't have enough Arsehole Spray
(They only come in packs of 4 not 6!)
He laughed at that one.
I told him all about my dad.
He left after an hour.
I forgot to tell him the funny story about me my dad.
Which I texted him later about the story about the Wobbly Step ladder↓
"Many year ago...
My parents invited us to a barbacue on a Sunny Summer Sunday.
The drinks flowed and the food was ate.
After 3 pints of beer, my dad decided to trim the hedge.
He balanced his fourth pint on top of the step ladder. He started to mount the step ladder with his hedge trimmer. He was in the course of trimming the hedge, the step ladder wobbed, and he nearly cut of his own head!
As I was the only sober one in the garden. I took him down to the local A&E to get his glued back together!" 
He texted me back, saying "He was glad to meet me and the story was funny about my dad.
 I had a light lunch↓
Out in the rain.
First stop was Bromsgrove Morrisons to get some eggs↓
Next stop,
Homebase.
The river was getting high↗↗↗

I go round to see a good friend for a catchup with coffee.
She gave me a lovely card↓
I said goodbye, and thanked her for having us :)
Back home.
I got changed,
Off to The Happy Place of Work. 
Some good music went on
I was singing along with a great song, even reaching some high notes....when I got walked on in mid high notes!
:) :)
Back home for a nice tea↓
Off to do final job of the day with some great music↓
