Look No Hands!

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
 Welcome to my Tuesday 😱
Nice warm hug with brew.
It's going to be nice day for sunshine!
I give hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I leave.
The big big sunglasses had to come out.
On goes the summer coat
(With a jacket underneath)
Now for the fun to start...🎈
It goes alright until....
I'm standing on the pavement, when a car is coming towards me, and the car starts to veer towards me.....
The woman car driver was messing with her hair, and no hands are on the steering wheel!
She then suddenly veered the car back....
I just shook my head.
Most cars try to get me in the road,
Not on the pavement!
The white Telsa didn't stop again.
Nearly had a few near taps and cracks this morning! 
I'm glad I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Now for that important coffee..
I start writing Sunday's blog post,
When DPD's customer service department phones me about the misdelivered parcel.
"I will get the driver to get it and redeliver it."
Was what they said......
We shall see....
My friend pops in for chat with coffee.
I said goodbye to my friend later on.
(I will see my friend later on in the week for more chat and coffee....)
Then it's time for afternoon shift.
As I get into Sexy Beast, I notice a DPD van goes past. I rush to end of my drive, and it's vanished into one of factory units.
Gets back into Sexy Beast.
I changes to another CD to listen to.
The Summer coat gets put on.
Puts my lights on.
Chats with the woman who has given me some plants and vice versa.
My friend came with dog.
I gives my friend some bread pudding
(My neighbour gets my younger son some on a Monday, and he got too much for just himself to eat,so I gave my friend some)
We sits and has a chat in the sunshine.
Once it was time for me to start.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Some cars had to stop as I was in there way.
Some cars seem it quite funny not having to stop.
A few near tap and cracks again.
At least I finished in one piece!
Now back home.
No parcel from DPD was there waiting for me.
I just about have had enough of this!
I asked the Seller for a refund.
The email I got was:
"DPD works late in the evening, you might get your parcel!"
Fine I can wait until 9pm!
I get on with making a Beef Casserole.
Out come the cast iron Casserole Dish.
Once I put that in the oven.
I watered all the plants.
Then to carry on writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋.
Dished up the food.
(Ate it too quick for a picture, the dumplings were nice!)
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Michael Lonsdale-Crouch, commonly known as Michael Lonsdale and sometimes named as Michel Lonsdale, was a French actor who appeared in over 180 films and television shows. He is best known in the English-speaking world for his roles as the villain Hugo Drax in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker, the detective Claude Lebel in The Day of the Jackal, The Abbot in The Name of the Rose and Dupont d'Ivry in The Remains of the Day
He died on this day in 2020 aged 89
Another nice full moon...
We watched the new series of "Bake Off".
While watching it, I had my book to finish.
 As normal, no DPD redelivering of my parcel.
Got in touch with Seller.
"Give me a refund please!"
Sleep tea time.
Finding out if I got permission to board the loft, and expecting another parcel to be delivered by DPD tomorrow
What could go wrong?????🐫

Brew and hug time.
Hubby went and got my newspaper.

Still feeling crap :(

I gave hubby a warm hug when he got home.

Keeping The Draughts At Bay!

It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death 
- Mary Renault
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐪
The swelling is going down, but more bruises are appearing on my knee.....Strange...
I had to get comfortable on the two seater sofa during the night.
I missed our Hug with a brew.
And having our breakfast together.
Hubby got my newspaper before he went for work.
I gave him a quick sloppy wet one before he dashed out of the house to go to work.
One son couldn't escape from one either!
Our youngest one is doing his school work from home.
He had to make a flag from household items.
(He loves Geography)
Very good :)
Now for coffee...
With a quick read of the newspaper.
 Ben-Hur" directed by William Wyler and starring Charlton Heston premieres in New York City in 1959.
 (Academy Awards Best Picture 1960)
I had a big blog post from yesterday to write...including hits from 1990...and Martin Scorsese's Birthday.....🎈
I finally finished it before lunch!
Woo hoo...
I going to have a go at making the poncho.
More needles for my Overlocker.
(I have no spare ones)
More bingewatching to do...
(While keeping the knee up)
Tea at 3.
I finished season 8.
The winner was:
Now onto Season 9..
We are taking a break from meat tonight.
Veggie option.
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy 💋 when he got home, and a warm hug.
I'm the only one who likes brown sauce...
We caught up with the semi-final of 
The Great British Bake Off.
The only window in the house that doesn't have a curtain or blind in it is the toilet room.
Measured the window up.
I have ordered a small curtain pole and going to make a curtain for it. The draught you get from the window is terrible.
So the plan tomorrow is to make it tomorrow just in time for the curtain pole arriving on Friday!
Going to try to fit in making a dust cover for the overlocker as well. 
Sleep Tea time↓
I hope I can enjoy the bed tonight and not the sofa!
