Fun In The Sun!

 An optimist is someone on death row, who is also a member of Weight Watchers - Jonathan Katz
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice hug to start the working week with.
Brew with breakfast.
It's another sad anniversary in the house.
As it is the 26th anniversary of my hubby's mum passing away..
I got dressed.
(Hubby is not going back to work until next week, as he has lots to sort out with his dad's death).
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘
I went a different way to work, as there was a sign up to say a bit of road I normally used was closed for resurfing.
I was alright halfway there until I was stuck behind a 68 plate white van doing 25 m.p.h in a 40 zone!
I go and get the newspaper before I get changed.
It was nice to slip into my lollypop coat again.
I turned on my lights.
Then I walked down to my spot.
Just 3 minutes into my shift.
How I didn't miss a woman's windscreen is beyond me!
Her gums were banging when she went past.
I had two BOINGs to give out!
My tape recorder was being played alot!
I told everyone who asked if I had a good Easter.
"No, terrible Easter, I wouldn't wish it anyone what we have gone through!"
Got finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
The coffee machine went on.
As did the washing machine.
I took up the dry washing that was in the Dining Room.
Hubby was walking around Evesham while he was getting his car serviced.
I made a new batch of soup and bread.
Watered the plants.
Now for that much important coffee.
Hung the washing on the line.
Now time for a nice bit of liquid lunch.
The bread was done :)
Hubby's car was finished.
He was coming back home,
I was leaving it!
The road was actually open, and had chippings put down. I was doing the necessary 20 m.p.h.
One white BMW decided not to and I was sprayed in chippings as he overtook me!
Gets down to job in the sunshine!
On goes the summer coat with
Big Big Sunglasses.
I turn on my lights.
Now to soak up the rays!
I only had one friend turn up to have a little rabbit with....
Now to start the afternoon shift!
I said goodbye to my friend.
He may not be here tomorrow as he is taking his sister to a Funeral tomorrow.
My hubby went past me, waving at me.
A couple of seconds later had to stop the traffic.
I gave out two BOINGs as the cars failed to stop.
One gave me a wink as he went past!
At least I finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
 Hubby had a warm hug and a nice sloppy wet one 😘
Much needed brew needed...
Hubby did the tea....
I had two blog posts to write for this blog and a blog post for the other one.
Mmmm tea was nice.
After I did my blogging.

Welcome to my Tuesday 👩
Finishing off the cheesecake today....
Brew with warm hug.

I have a quick Sleep Tea.
Goes to bed only for the loud snores to penetrate past my ear plugs....
I was too tired to put up the camp bed.
I just tried to make it comfortable on a two seater sofa to sleep on.....
