Coffee With My Cake!

 Just my luck. I was at the airport when my ship came in 
- Henny Youngman
Welcome to my Hump of the week 🐫
Coffee morning with some of my bakes going in....
Breakfast and Brew.
Then to load my bakes into Sexy Beast.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to work I went.
I dropped off my bakes first.
The woman I left with: said "they look nice enought to eat!"
"They are nice to eat, and have took photos of them all." As I left.
I put on my summer coat, summer hat, and big big sunglasses.
Off down the road to turn on my lights.
I collected my newspaper on the way back.
Swapped my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Now to walk to my spot!
I had a few BOINGs given out.
At least the sun is out and getting warm!
I was telling everyone about the coffee morning.
I finished in one piece.
Took coat and hat off and went for much needed drink...
I went back to the coffee morning.
My big pink cake had been sold.
However I had to have some of my bakes back as they had far too cake to sell.
Back in Sexy Beast they went. 
I left the Blueberry Muffins there.
(Someone moaned to me about the Blueberry flavour being too strong and was left in its mouth all day. They didn't realise it was me that made them!)
(Backtrack time!)
Back home I go.
I brought in the tins of cake back into the house.
I had a small lunch
(No liquid lunch avaliable)
I talked to hubby on his dinner break.
Now to go to do the afternoon session.
On goes the summer coat, summer hat and big big sunglasses goes on.
Turns on one set of lights.
Drops into the Charity Shop.
They like shortbread especially Strawberry Shortbread. Be dropping mine with them tomorrow.
Turns on my lights and back up the road to get my big stick out of
Sexy Beast.
I have a rabbit with my friends in the square before I started my afternoon shift.
I said goodbye to my friends.
As the sun was shining, I was hoping not to give out any BOINGs, oh I was so wrong!
Boing, Boing and much Boing given out to the car drivers on the otherside of the road.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home Time.
Time for a nice ice lolly!
I started on the tea..
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Film Time....
Then we caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to bed with warm hands!

Welcome aboard the cold Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Brew and hug.
Leaves the house for our daily walk.
It was frigging freezing.
I needed more layers on!
The thermal knickers will need to be put on soon!
Before my hubby left for work, the temperature was 3c, no wonder it was freezing cold!
Gave him a wet sloppy 💋 before he left.
The kids had one each too 💋💋
