Timed That Well!

 A couch is good for one thing only - John Wayne
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start!
Brew with breakfast.
On goes the thermal vest.
Not so many layers as it's going to get warm later.
I didn't even have to cover up Sexy Beast last night either \o/ 
Off I go.
I gave my hubby a wet sloppy one when I left.
On goes one winter hat and the lightweight gloves as it's quite warm!
I puts on my lights.
Now let's get to work 🍭
I had a few BOINGs to do for those car drivers that drove under my stick and failed to stop!
More worst on the otherside of road, where they didn't even look and ignored the raised Stop sign!
At least I finished in one piece!
I had a good long chat about Crystal Healing with one friend I cross over.
Eye opening!
I told her, hubby is having it tried out on him tonight!
I wished her a good day.
I popped into Co-op with my nice long list.
Hoping I will reach my target and get £3.50 off the bill.
Two shopping bags later.....
Off to get my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine!
Back home finally!
Coffee machine goes on.
Unpacks all the shopping.
Quick coffee.
Then it was chop chop the veggies, cook the chicken, then add the stock and in the oven it all went!
I put it on a slow temperature in the oven.
After all that,
Time to finish off my part of the soup!
A new batch will be made tomorrow, with the stock from the chicken casserole we are having later.
The sun has gone in, and it's cloudy.
No low lying sun to worry about now!
Time for part 2.
I saw one of my friends, I talk to in the afternoon, walking down the road.
He had a small beep off me when I went past him.
No gloves and one winter hat goes on.
Got to talking my friend who has just had his other hand operated on.
We were having a chat about soups and stews.
The friend who I beeped earlier arrived eating a sausage roll.
I said goodbye to my friend with the dog and and my other friend and I went to turn on my lights.
We came back to the bench and my other friend arrived. 
We all had a good rabbit.
He then gave my friend and I a chocolate Gingerbread man each.
I will have later with my brew when I get back home.
I said goodbye to both.
Now to have fun with my afternoon shift!
No low lying sun to worry about.
Just in the first 10 minutes, a long Estate Merc done an emergency stop straight in front of me.
I had lowered my big stick just seconds before, and if he hadn't stopped, he face would have touched my stop sign!
He had to wait a fair bit as I had lots of kids and parents to cross over!
HE soon sped off when I got back on the pavement!
Still giving out the BOINGs again! 
Finished in one piece!
Time for a brew!
Turns up the oven.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Just finished when hubby got back home.
He had a nice sloppy wet one!
Time to dish up the tea!
All four plates emptied!
Quick look into today's Newspaper.

Now to do some Crystal Healing on a willing hubby.
There is a nice smell of Lavender incense!
Hubby was nice and relaxed after it.
Then we watched the remaining episode of the second season of "Fame" we missed out on yesterday.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to get into that warm bed before the heating goes off!

Dropping It Without Notice!

 I gave him an unlimited budget and he exceeded it -
Edward Williams
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug with brew.
Now to sit outside with a coffee
Hubby took younger son on a walk to the shop, to get next door's magazine and our newspaper.
I had two blog posts to write!
I had another email from the Solicitor dealing with my late dad's estate.
The younger brother not happy with the extra £3000 he put into the estate, only added yet another £600 for 3 skips!!
He called me a Golddigger when I hired one to take away the things he dropped off at mine last year during the first Lockdown!!
 I am glad I am going to work tonight.
I need to clean 26 toilets in this burning heat to get rid of my anger! 
Blogs wrote and published.
Now to sit outside and enjoy lunch in the sunshine.
The DPD tried to deliver my parcel.
However it went past our house.
(We were sat in the front garden)
Tried to deliver to one of the factories down the road!
Then I had a text message saying the driver will be attempting delivery tomorrow now!
Hubby then went after the driver who was up the road delivering.
The driver came back, and balanced my parcel on a garden ornament↓
Now to unpack it!
 I had to order things for the two Birthday cakes for next week.
One 50th and 17th Birthdays next week.
Let's hope the things get here on time!
The rain came in as planned!
I took my rain mac to work just in case, I get wet taking the bin bag outside to the big bin.
Gave everyone  big sloppy 💋💋💋 
Time for some singing in the rain...
Gets in.
It's still well warm!
My hoover had been Pat tested!
Funny they backdated it to February!
It was so warm doing my job!
No windows opened.
Plenty of fluids being drunk! 
Finished on time.
More music to singalong with on the way back home.
Back home.
The flowers looking nice!
I had my tea.
Quick look in the newspaper.
James Jones was an American singer-songwriter who moved to New York City while a teenager. According to Allmusic journalist Steve Huey, "best known for his 1960 R&B smash, 'Handy Man,' Jones sang in a smooth yet soulful falsetto modeled on the likes of Clyde McPhatter and Sam Cooke.
He would have been 91 years old🎈
He sadly died aged 82 in 2012. 
I having my Sleep Tea in our bedroom.
When suddenly my hubby dropped his pants, revealing a pale white moon(Bum).
I was already warm,
I had a nice hot flush after seeing that! 
The moon was soon covered up!
We are off to Bidford Car Boot tomorrow....
Let's hope loads of bargains tomorrow!
