Let's Follow That Tractor!

I was once so poor I didn't know where my next husband was coming from - Mae West.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week ðŸŦ
Warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he went to work.
I meanwhile left the house shortly after too.
I had a phone call, from the friend I have coffee with at Webbs, saying the Bromsgrove Highway is closed due to an accident.
I now have to figure another way to Webbs.
Picks up the newspaper & my neighbour's magazine on the way.
I gets off at a sliproad before I get stuck in the massive queue on the Highway.
I goes the old way I used to go to my old job.
Through the lovely countryside.
I finally get to Webbs and B3
I have a look in Hobbycraft...
£58
My didn't cost mine on Saturday!
£2.99
Now to have coffee, chat and nibble!
Then it's a good look around the house plants!
Wonder if I could fit this in my garden???
I said goodbye to my friend.
Off home I went.
I thought the highway might be open by now.
Big Mistake,it wasn't.
On the way through the back roads of Bromsgrove to get home, I was stuck behind a tractor with a trailer doing 20 m.p.h.
Some managed to overtake it, by the time it was my turn, the lines were against me.
I gets to a slip road of the Bromsgrove Highway it was still closed.
So I had to follow the tractor once more.
A convoy was slowly building up behind me.
An ambulance that was 4 cars behind me, put their blue lights on, so I stopped and let it through.The Tractor refused to let the ambulance through until the ambulance put on it's music (Sirens)THEN it stopped and let the ambulance through!
I took another short cut and didn't follow the tractor no more \o/ 
Finally got home after half an hour!
My magazine and pom pom trims arrived.
Lunch.
Now to get out in the garden for a little bit of tidy up!
Swept the path, got some weeds up!
Tea at 3 was a bit late.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote....
Hubby came back with tonight's tea.
He has a sloppy wet 😘 for his trouble!
Tea is served.

It's A Small One!

Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life 
- Dorothy Parker
Welcome to my Thursday ðŸ‘―
Brew with warm hug.
Breakfast.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he goes off to the office.
(He is getting the newspaper on the way)
I get the kids up ready for their on-line learning.
I get dressed.
I put on the new duvet cover↓
Empties the bins in the house.
Recycling goes out in the green bin.
Henry comes out for a little play..
Followed by the mop and bucket, to mop the kitchen floor.
I back up the rest of the videos off my old computer.
Once it do so, the computer died! 
Much needed coffee!
The new computer arrives.
It's so small...
Not at all like my old one.
My old tower was the Full Tower.
The new one is the Mini-Tower.
I had bought a new keyboard separately as my old one the space button gave up on me.
Opened the box and a free mouse and keyboard came with it!
(Always needs a spare!)
I get all the old computer towers out from under my computer desk.
Time for a big tidy up under there.
Henry comes to the rescue!
Plugs all the wires into the new computer.
However having trouble with the speakers ðŸĪŠ
Finally get the computer up and running....
Lunchtime!
Then I sorted out all my magazines that was in my Lloyd Loom  under my computer desk.
I like to keep my items.
There were all food magazines from 2009, I got from my late dad's house.
(He wanted to throw them away!)
They might be going for free on Facebook tomorrow.
I ran out of time for Tea at 3.
By the time I finished sorting out the magazines it was Tea time.
Hubby was visiting his dad after work.
I enjoyed a tin of Macaroni Cheese.
Yum Yum!
I tried to go back on my new computer.
Now the monitor isn't working!
I get my younger son to help!
The lead that leads to the plug had come out from behind the monitor!
Plugs it back in and it works! 
Hubby comes back,
I give him a sloppy wet 💋
He gives me the newspaper in return.
