Trying To Catch Up!

 I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by - Douglas Adams
Hi everyone 👐
Just a small update....
So much has happened in the last 3 weeks,
I have been keeping the blog updated just not published them, as there is a huge gap of posts.
Good news and bad news I have had.
8th May is the 10th Anniversary of my mum passing away.
On a lighter note.
Got some Great vinyl albums from the local Charity Shop↓↓
Hopefully I will get three weeks blog posts published this week....
Fingers crossed 🤞

Wally Is looking Good!

A bore is someone who talks when you wish him to listen - Ambrose Bierce
Welcome to my Thursday 📦
Mmmm warm hug with brew.
Opened the curtains...
Nice sunrise
Gives hubby a wet sloppy 😘 before I leave.
Big big sunglasses time.
Summer coat goes on
(With jacket underneath)
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
I stopped the white Tesla again ;)
Someone had to slam the brakes on or it would have done tap and smash!
Still loads of traffic to deal with.
At least I finished in one piece!
I collects the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine was put on.
While that was doing the coffee, 
I watered the plants.
Poured my coffee,
Then mopped the kitchen floor.
I filled in the form for permission, took a picture of it, and emailed the council department.
The email bounced back to me!
Copy and pasted the email address off the council website.
It did not bounce this time.
DPD redelivered my parcel to a shop for me to pick up later on this afternoon!
Woo Hoo!
Much needed coffee now!
Tried to write yesterday's blog post.
However as normal,
I got sidetracked.
Trying to find some draught excluders.....
Either too small, too expensive, or I would have to wait for some in November!
Son came back, and he wore his fancy dress outfit, to show me how he looked.
Where's Wally!
His Where Wally cake has to be finished for tomorrow.
More books arrived for me to read!
Light lunch.
Then it's back out in the sunshine.
On goes the summer coat.
I go and get a ice-lolly.
Turn on my lights.
Collects Lollypop stick.
Then to enjoy the sun's rays with ice lolly.
Chatted to one friend.
Then I started the afternoon shift.
Some car drivers drove straight under my stick....
Oh well....
One Speedy car driver had to slam his brakes on, as I was in the middle of the road, and not going on nowhere....
Finished in one piece.
Now to go and pick up my parcel.
I had some laughs in there.
Back home I go.
Now to get the tea on the go....
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 💋
Tea is served..
Quick look into today's newspaper.
You always need some Jive Bunny in your life!
I love Agadoo that much,
It's my ringtone on my mobile!

Just about to go to bed at 11pm, when my son comes down to finish off his cake and wants my help!
Out comes the white fondant, rolls it, puts it on the cake. Now for the red effect on it!
Where is Wally cake
The Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Back on the boxset with a dose of Sleep tea↓
Charlie  Rich was an American country music singer, songwriter, and musician. His eclectic style of music was often difficult to classify, encompassing the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, soul, and gospel genres.
In the later part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname the Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, "Behind Closed Doors" and "The Most Beautiful Girl". "The Most Beautiful Girl" topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles charts and earned him two Grammy Awards. Rich was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2015.He died aged 62 in 1995.
 Lidl have some great bargains on sale tomorrow.....
