Lighting Up The Planet!

However much a shower control may rotate,the degree of rotation required to change from ice-cold to scalding is never more than one millimetre - Joe Bennett
 Welcome to my warm Hump of the Week 🐫
Heardle time!
Heardle 60s:
Son hadn't done his heardles, and by the time he had done them, I forgot to take a pic of them!
Time for some breakfast with brew.
I got to watering the plants in the garden before it got too warm.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before he went to work.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast. 
Gets the newspaper.
While waiting for the traffic lights to change to green, the car in front must be colourblind, he drove straight through the red light!
Dropped off younger son.
Then off to Bromsgrove.
I had to wait for it open.
That would look nice in my late Father-in-law's garden!
The doors were finally opened.
Half priced garden lights.....
Someone said to me as I was pushing my trolley,
"Hope you have left some for other people!"
I pointed to the loads left on the shelf,
"Of course, I have left loads!"
After paying for them, and loading them up in Sexy Beast. I visit Aldi and gets more bargains.
Final stop was to pick up my paint from Hughes.
There was something going on a the Palace Theatre, as everyone was parking anywhere, including the pavement!
Back home.
Put the coffee maker on.
Put all my lights out in the garden.
Even the bargain from Aldi went out.
Coffee time.
Had a chat with the Postman.
Must be getting old, no post for me,
But plenty for the kids!
The shade was disappearing....
I quickly repotted a plant I bought earlier.
One gnome went with windmills.
Time for a light lunch.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
I had Tea at 3.
I just finished writing the blog post,
When hubby walked through the front door.
He had a sloppy wet one 😘
Tea is served up.
Stew with Dumplings.
Hubby went off to see his friend to enjoy a Boys Night watched WWE wrestling.

I went outside to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Some of the lights were already coming on.

I'm glad the temperature went down upstairs.
I slept on top of the duvet.
Out like a light I went Zzzzz

Looking On The Bright Side......

 A weed is a plant that is not only in the wrong place but intends to stay.
