Who Needs Love Like That!

The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous 
- Shana Alexander
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Thermals were added....
I found out why my dad's funeral is nearly 3 weeks away...
The Prodical brother's birthday is on the 23rd February and mine is on the 29th February.
Prodical didn't want a funeral just after his Birthday....
So we are stuck in limbo for 3 weeks now!
Now to enjoy a much needed hug and cup of tea!
 I gave everyone sloppy 💋💋💋
Now to leave the house↓
 Long thermals are coming in useful!
The sun is coming up↗↗↗
 Today's tree picture↓
 I didn't have the fun with the blue van like yesterday.
Some car drivers still can't understand "STOP"!
Finished in one piece.
Then on to the Hairdressers.
I booked my hair to be trimmed next week.
I told my hairdresser about the fun I was having with my brother's stripping my dad's house out.
I commented :"Who needs Brotherly love like that? Not me!"
Back home after picking some milk up from the local Co-op.
  Just had time to get changed,
Cup of coffee
Light Lunch
Back out with some great music on a new CD↓
Quick look in the newspaper↓

I looked across the fields of fun↓
 I had a nice red face when I finished.
More singing to do↓
 Back out in the sunshine↓
More fun with the low lying sun↓
 I was in the middle of road, one woman car driver didn't want to wait another minute, put her foot down, and drove past me!
I just shook my head!
Besides that,
I finished in one piece!
Back home↓
 Gets changed.
Off to the Happy Place Of Work.
I was telling them about it's been a week since my dad died, and my two brothers stripping my dad's house bare.
Gets back home to start on the evening meal↓
 Yum, yum.
Now to burn it off while doing work and singing↓
 I gets back, and hubby is having a nice conversation with my younger brother! NOT!
Lists with all the tools my dad owed are being made, as there are some arguments about me having a few tools!!!!
Off to bed in hope I have a better day tomorrow!
