When I Walk In The Room, I Just Have To ....

 If at first you don't succeed, cheat. - Red Buttons
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Warm hug with Brew.
Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.....
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
I had to park elsewhere as the hall was closed.
It was quite warm, so no need for gloves!
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get ready to roll...🍭
Cars and vans failing to stop!
Some have to do emergancy stops!
Some parents are still chancing it by crossing into moving traffic instead of using me!
At least I survived in one piece!
Nips into Co-op to get some bits....
Saves £6.05 on my shopping bill :)
Next onto Screwfix.
Henry the Hoover!
While in the queue, I here a great song playing, So I start singing along, the man looks around at me....
He must want to join in I thought!
I collects my order.
The £5 off my order helped!
Next to pick up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
While I was waiting, a great song came on, and I started to sing-along...
The two men in front started to look around to see where the singing was coming from.
They looked at me, and I kept on singing along!
"Your happy!" I was told when I paid for my things.
"I am now after doing some singing!" I replied.
Just before I left, I joined in with Belinda Carlisle
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Empties the tumble drier.
Loads up the dish washer and puts it on.
Sorts out the food in the fridge.
Recycling get put in the green bin.
(Our 3 recycling bins are being emptied tomorrow) 
Now for some coffee.
I though writing yesterday's blog post would only take an hour, it took longer!
Right up to lunch, and I still hadn't published it!
Light lunch.
Now for part two....
I was singing along with a great song on the way to work.
Such a Big Tune, it was repeated four times it was good...
The song?
At the end of this blog post...
It was warm enough to wear gloves!
Turned on my lights.
Got chatting to my two friends.
Just before I was due to start, I notice a Argos and Amazon van parking on the double yellow lines over the road where I was due to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Afternoon shift.
Still having problems with car drivers not stopping.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Time for a much needed brew!
I finished and published yesterday's blog post.
Now to get on with tonight's tea.
Opened a cupboard door, my oval dish fell out and broke into 3 bits!
It didn't help cutting open my finger while picking up one piece of it, blood everywhere!
Once it stopped, put a plaster on it, now to carry on with the tea.
It was ready before Hubby came home.
When he did come back from work, he had to warm his up in the microwave!
Four plates were empty!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

It's my late mum's 77th Birthday this Saturday.
I have ordered some balloons 🎈 for her birthday.
My good friend who passed away last May would have been 87 on Sunday.
I made him a Birthday Cake for his 78th Birthday.↓
I should a new CD arrive on Friday...↓
Plenty of singing along with this one!
We caught up with two episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991.
Oh dear, the fast forward button was used a lot.
Great number one in the second episode.
Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff.
Great cover version of the Tommy Roe number 1 hit from 1969↓↓↓
Out of all hits  Tommy Roe had.
I prefer this one↓
Now to move onto the one hit wonders of the 70s...

Read of the newspaper.

Veronica "Randy" Crawford  is an American jazz and R&B singer. She has been more successful in Europe than in the United States, where she has not entered the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo artist. However, she has appeared on the Hot 100 singles chart twice. First, was in 1979 as a guest vocalist on The Crusaders's top 40 hit "Street Life". She also dueted with Rick Springfield on the song "Taxi Dancing," which hit #59 as the b-side of Springfield's hit "Bop Til You Drop." She has had five Top 20 hits in the UK, including her 1980 number 2 hit, "One Day I'll Fly Away", as well as six UK Top 10 albums. Despite her American nationality, she won Best British Female Solo Artist in recognition of her popularity in the UK at the 1982 Brit Awards. In the late 2000s she received her first two Grammy Award nominations. 
She is 69 years old 🎈 
 
I am waiting for the Heating Engineer to service our 15 year old boiler since 8am, no sign of him just yet, as I sit down to write yesterday's blog.
The breadmaker baked another lovely loaf of bread.
I got my Omega delivery delivered :)
I had a important email come through.
I have been added to the Shielding list until March 31st!
Only allowed out of the house for medical appointments and exercise.
One of the Solictors dealing with my late dad's house sale, was given the wrong email for me.When she was given the right email address,she wanted some papers about the house. I told her, the younger brother has all those documents: 
As the Whitney Houston's song goes...
I have nothing, no documents concerning the house whatsoever!  

I wrote and published yesterday's blog.
Even had time to do my jukebox of tunes on Twitter :)
Lunchtime. 
I got through to my Doctors after 15 minutes to see about my X-ray results.My Doctor haven't seen them yet.
I got booked in for a blood test.
As I can't have it done at my normal place no more!
I mentioned I was put on the Shielding list and was booked to have the Covid jab next week :)
I tried to watched the programme that is Number 1 on Netflix...
Bored.
I watched a great film instead.
I enjoyed Tea at 3.
It was coming up to 10 to 4pm when still the Heating Engineer hadn't arrived to service the 15 year old boiler of ours.
I phoned the Council, she says:
 "He turned up on 10am."
 "Funny that", I didn't hear any knock on the door!"I replied.
Trying again for someone to come back again sometime next month.
 When hubby came back from work.
He had a nice sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Pork Belly, with stuffing and veg. 
We then watch 4 episodes of Judge Rinder.
Sleep tea time↓↓
Friday Feeling 🎈 is back tomorrow
As well as two episodes of Top of The Pops from 1990.
One song that is featured, won't be forwarded, is at the end of this blog post.
