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↓

  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↓

 When I got back,
I caught up with some↓
