More Hump Day Fun!

 What fresh hell is this? - Dorothy Parker, answering the phone.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Hubby came to bed at midnight last night.
I had a bad night's sleep.
Plenty of ...↓
Gets up at 6am and has cold shower.
Heardle time!
Heardle 60s was:
Then it was time for brew and breakfast.
Dressed.
Then out of the door.
Big Big sunglasses time.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one.
I got the newspaper.
Put on the summer coat.
I turned on my lights.
Back to it 🍭
It was getting well busy.
9 cars failed to stop on the otherside of the road.
The 10th car had to do a emergency stop!
Chats with the parents.
Then it starts to rain...
(Even though my pine cone says sunshine)
A brief shower!
See the blue Skoda from last November that tried to run me over!
Funny her license plate doesn't match the car details on the DVLA website!
Finishes in one piece.
Now off to be B3.
Meets friend for coffee and nibbles.
The slices of cake looked nice.
But I'm saving myself for the lovely homemade cake at the coffee morning tomorrow :)
I said goodbye to my friend and off home I went.
Filled up Sexy Beast....
Fuel is getting bloody expensive...
Horse and cart next!
At least the horse poop be good for the garden!
Very light lunch indeed.
Back out for part two.
That black cloud doesn't look too good↓
Traffic lights have been up opposite where I put on my lights.
I turn on my lights and get back to Sexy Beast.
Then the heavens open and it rains really heavy!
One of my friends comes and we wait for the rain to finish.
I change coats into my winter one.
We go and wait in the square for our other friend.
My friend comes, and it's time for a little rabbit..
We were watching the traffic backing up all the way to my spot....
I said goodbye to my friends.
Part two.
One car got tired of waiting for me to cross the kids over the road.
And tooted me to hurry up!
Cars were putting their toe down and not stopping the other side.
It was getting that bad for traffic.
Both sides were not moving but the traffic lights kept changing!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I drove half way home and didn't release my boot lid was still up.......
I was glad to get home!
Has a ice lolly to call down with.
Puts pie in the oven.
Writes some blog posts.
Hubby comes home for a nice sloppy wet one!
Tea is served.
Now to look in the newspaper...

Pass Me A Crystal!

The way I look at it, I'm a human being first and gorgeous second - Harvey Fierstein
Welcome to my Monday 😁
Nice warm hug for me.
(Kept waking up due to pain in right knee!)
Brew with breakfast.
No wobbly work wheel for two wheels \o/
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before he left for work.
I have jobs to do around the house.
The coffee machine went on.
Sorted through two baskets of clothes, one son had bought down. Some clothes I had washed last week, and he hadn't even worn.
One basket went back upstairs to his room.
Washing machine went on.
Poured the coffee and took it upstairs.
Sorted out all the clothes I washed over the weekend.
My youngest son was coming out with me for a ride to the Salvation Army Charity Shop.
Just abouts got a parking space opposite.
Gets the newspaper from the Co-op.
Waits for the Charity Shop to open.
Once open, I gets some bargains.
Back to Sexy Beast with them.
Back home.
Unpacks the bargains.
I bought a Candlewick bedspread for £3.
Looks like this but in purple.
Nice beach mat for £1.
I put the soup maker on.
Both sons were off to do and take part in a Massage Course.
I will see them later afterwards, as I am finishing my Crystal course.
Light lunch time...
Now to drop the pot of lavender to my parents.
Nothing has been removed since Mother's Day.
Now off to finish my Crystal Course.
I answered the questions and put the crystals where they are supposed to go.
Passed!
I have a good book to read tonight.
Thanks Joe for a great course.
Brings kids home. 
Cleansed my crystals.
Tea at 3.
I dropped off my son's to help Joe delivering his leaflets.
Who did I see wearing just a black vest driving his van on the otherside of the carriageway????

Sorted through my Tarot cards up to making tea.
Meat free time.
Yum.

It Has To Happen To Me!

Anything you buy will be in the sale next week - Erma Bombeck
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 👽
Nearly oversleeps....AAAhhhhh!
Quick warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Hubby has day off as we have people coming in to check the boiler and all the plugs in the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 
It's freezing!
Good job I covered my car up!
The big big sunglasses come out again!
 
With 2 winter hats and gloves.
Puts on my light...
Now let's go to work...🍭
Now the fun starts!
A black BMW stops in the Keep Clear area, and I can't cross the kids over. I walk behind it and stop the traffic that way!
My boss comes, I give her, her card and present.
I tell her about the fun I have been having.
Especially the lorry not stopping last week and being called an arsehole the other week.
My job never gets boring!
I had a look of hate from one car driver who didn't like stopping for me! Then 5 minutes the same driver went past me again!
Still not looking happy!
I wished my boss a happy retirement.
Finished in one piece.
I nipped into the nearby Bakery for some treats for later.
Then I paid a visit into the nearby Co-op.
The fun I had in there....
I picked up a Sloth...
It's the first thing I tried to pay for.
The till wouldn't let me.
Even the man came over and it wouldn't let him either.
Goes over to the manned till to pay for it instead.
The Cashier coughed.
The customer asked if she is alright?
"I have had it since my Booster!" She replied.
"I was not feeling very well after mine either,"the customer replied.
"That's great, I am having mine on Saturday,"I replied.
"I better shut up then!" The customer said and walked off after paying for her goods.
I paid for my Sloth and went back to pay for my goods at the self-service till.
After scanning all my shopping.
My card was declined!
Puts the pin in on the second attempt!
Accepted!
Goes out to Sexy Beast.
Some has parked a bit close to my car!
I put the shopping in the passenger foot well.
I had to do a very deep breath, and put my door up against the car's wing mirror to get in!
Just put on my seat belt, and the car next to me, reverses out and leaves!
Gets to the shop to get my newspaper.
More fun in there, and it not even ten am!
While I am in the queue, two likely lads tries to push in, they have the look off me, and then they queue behind me. Then someone else tries to do the same, until I cough and he gets the hints to join the back of the queue.
The man in front wanted a litre bottle of Bells Whiskey.
They didn't have any, so he had two 70L bottles instead.
Gets back home finally!
Hubby says no one has came yet.
I puts on the Coffee machine.
The Plumber arrived.
Not in a very good mood.
It didn't help the Circuit board on the Boiler blew!
He had to go and get another one.
When he came back, he fitted it, tried the heating, but just looked at my gas cupboard.
He put down on the form we need a upgrade on the boiler as it is coming up to 16 years old next year!
The Job site wants me to chase up the cleaning job I applied for on Monday....
It is still being advertised, I haven't heard nothing, and probably won't!
I has a quick lunch.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leaves.
On goes the winter hat and gloves.
One of my friends arrives early.
I gives him the nibbles to look over while I go and turn on my lights. 
Both friends are there.
They have their nibbles, I am having mine, when I get home.
Low lying sun time.
The Christmas Market is on tomorrow.
I will have to come early in the afternoon, as it's going to be a pig for parking.
I say goodbye to everyone.
Now to start my shift.
I had some bad looks of some drivers as they didn't like stopping!
One Purple Nissan Qushqai went speeding under my stick, going about 60 m.p.h!
One car parked in the keep clear space, so I had to walk behind them to cross over kids and parents.
Then it was hometime for me!
On the way home, a truck pulled out and wasn't stopping!
I had to quickly swirve to avoid being hit.
I threw in a blast of the horn for free.
I must have seen it being driven off after being stolen, as the above picture was put on social media saying it had been stolen. It was involved in an accident later on in the evening.The driver did a runner after the accident.
(So I was lucky I didn't have an accident with it!)
More fun later on....
One van signalled wrongly around a traffic island, then was going 20 m.p.h, and signelled at the last minute turning left. Then stuck behind another car doing 20 m.p.h in a 40 m.p.h.
I had a DPD van stuck up my arse for the rest of my journey!
I was glad to get home!
Nice warm hug and kiss went I got home.
Plus a brew and nibble as well!
What a surprise the firm hired by the council to come check all the plugs in the house, didn't turn up! No phone call or nothing!
While I was attempting to write Wednesday's blog post, hubby was catching up with the Muppet show on Netflix.
Roger Moore was on one episode.
Time to put the tea in the oven.
We watched:
Agatha Christie: 100 Years of Poirot and Miss Marple
Tea is served.
Quick look into today's newspaper.

He is 56 years old 🎈 
Then we watch 2 episodes of the first series of  "Fame".
Hubby was well pissed off when he was singing along with Hi Fidelity, when the advert break cut off the song after 1 minute...
The first series is going to end with a sad moment, I might have to leave the room when this following song plays....
(As my husband keeps asking when "Starmaker gets played in this series.I remember watching it the first time it was shown, when I was 10 years old, it was sad then.)
Sleep Tea Time.
The Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
