Using Up The Magic Box!

In order to get a loan, you must first prove you don't need it - Murphy's law 
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Lent starts........
Up early to do the Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast with Brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he left for work.
Once I got up, the thermal vest went on.
First up was to nip out to get the newspaper and bits for tea tonight.
I got everything from Tesco Express.
An orange Skoda has parked so the traffic lights couldn't pick him up to change to green.
A good ten minutes he was waiting for the light to change. I went the other way. 
The house next door to my late dad's old house is up for sale...
£300,000 and it's yours!
Back home.
Coffee time!
Now to use up two cauliflowers that was in this week's magic box.
Plus four leeks as well.
Cauliflower Cheese! 
It was put in the oven ready for tonight!
I wrote one blog post up to liquid lunch!
Back to writing the second blog post....
Breaktime for Tea at 3. 
Put the oven on.
Nice £7 rent increase a week from April!
Might have to dig out the tent soon!
Back to finishing off the blog post.
Hubby comes back and has a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is ready!
I looked into today's newspaper.

Escaping......That Noise!

The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused - Russ Dudley.
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice hug to start Hump Day with 🐫
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Younger son had finished another puzzle \o/
He is starting another one after breakfast.
Now out for another road trip...
Now to start visiting some Charity Shops.
Pub had caught fire last year.
It was left to the last two Charity Shops when we found some things we needed.
We put the shopping trolley in the car and went to pick up some bits from Waitrose.
I used the scanner to keep an eye on what I was spending.
Went to scan it out, and had to be checked on what I bought.
Unloaded it all at the next available Cashier.
Only to be told, I only had to be checked for 5 items at the self service.
I replied to that gem was:
"Last time I was checked, the whole lot had to be rescanned...."
"That's been changed now,"I was told.
Just about to pay for it all, and my card wasn't being accepted by the card reader!
Quick wipe and the computer said "YES!"
I need a drink after that!
Now back home to unpack all the shopping.
But first the new soup maker goes on.
Hubby now has a big and small Hulk guarding his Rum! 
Now for the homemade soup.
Then I constructed a little film about Coffee and Rum...
It didn't take too long to do.
Speaking about Coffee....
It's time for one...
My perfume arrived :)
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Now to get the tea ready.
Put on a good film to watch.
Nice easy Veggie Tea.
Someone put their 1979 Misty annual on Twitter.
She was commenting on how much people were selling copies of it.
I have 7 Misty Annuals and missing 1979.
Next a good film starts at 9pm.
All Because The Lady Loves Milk Tray↓
Quick read of today's newspaper.
USA No.1 on this day in 1973:
 Jim Croce - Time In A Bottle
UK No.1 on this day in 1987: 
Pet Shop Boys - Always On My Mind 
Sleep Tea Time.
As we were getting ready for bed, my ear plugs had disappeared.
I'm not putting up with loud snoring no way!
I went back downstairs to sleep on the sofa instead...
Night all

Ooh La La!

There are two things in life I like hard and one of them is eggs -
Mae West 
 Welcome to my busy Saturday 👅
Nice big hug with brew!
Breakfast early.
Hubby had to go have his second Covid vaccine job. 
He was out of the house early.
I was just taking our son to his Saturday job when the postman arrived.
I looked down at Amazon packet he handed me.
I gave it him back as I said to him:
"I like the Hollies pop group, but haven't named my house after them!"
I dropped son off, then the fun started.
On the way back home, one blue BMW didn't like it having to stop at the roundabout when I went past him. He followed me half the way home.
Other bit of fun I had, someone pulled out in his air con advertising van out of a side road in front of me!
I was doing 40 limit, so had to brake hard or he would have took out  the front of my Sexy Beast. He seemed to be going the same way I was going home.
When I got on my drive, he turned around further down the road and went past my house and out of the road!!!
I sat in the garden waiting for hubby to come back.
Now time for a road trip to Droitwich!
with big big sunglasses.

We got a parking space.
Now to look to see what the Droitwich Lions have for sale.
We got some DVDS, and a jar of lovely jam.
We visited the charity shop up from the church.
Got a Dvd boxset of musicials for £2. 
We moved the car to another car park.
Now to visit more Charity Shops!
The first Charity shop has a old fashioned sewing machine for £10.
I thought about it, and decided against it.
We are onto our 4th Charity Shop when I started singing along with song that came on the radio.
Younger son didn't like it, and went outside.
The staff in the shop thought it was funny and should have got to used to my singing on how much I do!
The song I was singing along was:
He suddenly went all moody on us.
We had a takeaway coffee and sat outside the library to soak up the rays!
Couldn't put up with the mood, so back to the car and back home.
Unpacked all the bargains↓
3 more pom poms for the Pom Pom tree.
Off out to get some plants for the garden.
Now to listen to some music we bought earlier.
There was a large queue of traffic before we got to the Garden Centre. One man was losing his rag in front of me, as the traffic in front was grid locked. He tried to overtake all the cars in front, until a big lorry came down the road. I just turned right into the Garden Centre, and let him get on with it!
Time to look around!
Time for coffee and nibble..
Loads of plants in the trolley!
Coffee and nibble.
We then carried on looking at the plants.
One had a nice name...
We queued up to pay for the plants...
It was so hot, my top was sticking to me!
I was glad to have the breeze when I got out of there!
Back in Sexy Beast and home. 
Unloads all the plants.
Hubby wasn't feeling very well.
He went to bed.
I got some plants to pot!
Halfway through, I had to pick up son from his Saturday job.
I got some stuff in the sale.
Joe has some nice stuff.
I gets back to the car, and son had changed my CD over as he didn't like Cher!!!!
Back to planting the plants.
I got through a whole bag of compost!
At least the garden looks a lot better!
Now for tea in the garden.
Then it was time to write two days of blog posts.
We caught up on some television programmes as well.
Then we watched the last third series of:
Really great show :)
Then we caught up with the news!
Then off to the hot bed....
