Never The White Way!

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back -
Arthur Rubinstein 
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug to start Hump Day with!
Brew and breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on too!
Now to uncover Sexy Beast.... 
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one when I leave.
I only put on one winter hat, with lightweight gloves.
While I was waiting to turn on my lights.
Hubby went past in his car, and waved.
The traffic was utter chaos where he normally goes to work.
I turned on my lights,
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Oh dear...
One grey car over the road, decided that the pavement was his new parking space!
I put my big stick out in front of me,
A white mini drives straight under it!
Cars on the otherside just drive through,
Narrowly missing my stick.
One van with trailer was so lucky not to have a tap and crack on his windscreen.
Only for this van to try and park in the square opposite, back and forward it went, I told the parents to go the other way, as they could get hit by it.
Then a small white van parks behind the grey car.
Making it hard for people with pushchairs to get past it. Even someone with a guide dog found it difficult to get past.
So much traffic this morning!
I was having trouble with white coloured vans and cars this morning!
I finished in one piece.
I travelled down to the Co-op.
There was so much traffic on the way!
I looked over to see how far the queue of traffic started from...
Then I heard the sirens of an Ambulance trying to get past the queue of traffic.
I done my shopping.
Picked up the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
On goes the coffee machine.
So does the soup maker.
Coffee time.
Soup was done.
Having emails from Dunelm.
Having a full refund...
&
£30 gift card for all the trouble I have been through!
Pan fried the chicken, 
&
All the vegetables for tonight's tea.
Once cooked,
Put in the oven for later!
Light lunch time! 
Off to do the afternoon shift.
One winter hat, and lightweight gloves.
Puts on lights.
Now for a little rabbit with friends..
At least the car and van moved!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
My big stick was out in front,
One small white car didn't want to stop, and done the limbo dance straight under my stick!
Cars are the otherside were ignoring me and kept going!
Then I have a van park on the pavement blocking my view!
The silver car on the left had parked further back, until a big lorry couldn't get past it, and it had a big blast of air horns!
I was glad I finished in one piece!
Hometime
Oven goes on.
Now for much needed cup of brew!
Put the egg noodles in the pan.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet kiss when he comes back.
Tea is served.
Yum.
Now to look in today's newspaper.

Putting It Together!

Reason has always existed, but not always in a reasonable form - Karl Marx
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Big hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Quick ride out in Sexy Beast.
Bloody freezing!
Said hello to everyone in the shop while I got my newspaper.
Then on to town to return my Amazon product.
It got scanned, and sent back to sender.
Back home soon afterwards.
Still freezing!
Coffee time!
Kids were woken up.
One son has to clear out his room ready for his new cabin bed tomorrow.
Hubby goes and get some new tyres for his car.
I meanwhile are making a draught proof curtain for the little window by our front door!
My sewing machine comes out....
Having a little go on it...
Hubby comes back with a much needed takeaway coffee...
By the time I sowed the 3 sides of material and put the blind in, there wasn't another material to cover the 4th side....
GREAT!
I sew some different material on the remaining side. Then added the same material to the one side of the curtain!
Lunchtime.
My wool order had arrived!
My son went off for a job interview with hubby.
The other son was trying to attach the curtain to wood above the window.
It at least will stop the draughts from the window!
Now to start writing yesterday's blog post.
Son came back from job interview, the boss will be in touch soon....
I heard back from my late dad's solicitor.
The buyer still has to sign and send the documents back to his solicitor....
GREAT 
I send email to the solicitor dealing with my dad's estate. It is looking more like June before this lot gets sorted.....
Then I won't have to deal with my brothers no more.....
\o/ 
Put the tea on early as kids on delivering leaflets with Joe and Pete later on.
Once kids have been dropped off.
We have our veggie option.
We caught up on Judge Rinder.
No Judge Rinder for the rest of the week due to horseracing.
Next to watch was:
I made some more pom poms
