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 🐫
Warm hug with brew.
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...
My didn't cost mine on Saturday!
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.
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.

Let's Face The Music And Dance!

I told the Inland Revenue I didn't owe them a penny because I lived by the seaside - Ken Dodd
Welcome to my Monday 👯
Nice hug with brew.
I gave hubby a wet sloppy 💋 before he went off to work.
I had a nice hot shower.
Got the kids up.
I had a quick coffee...
Now to do some work around the house.
Dishwasher went on.
Tumble Drier on.
All the recycling went into the green bin.
I added new sealant to the basin in the bathroom.
That done :)
Before I started on the bath.
Fresh air needed.
Out to get the newspaper.
I filled up the bath half full of water.
I took off the old sealant.
However the new sealant didn't work!!!
I used some sealant tape instead.
That looks a lot better! 
Now for a very late lunch!
Then to write 2 blog entries.
The Prodical brother of mine had actually paid a visit to our parents grave over the Christmas period!!!!!
(First time since the funeral last March!)
He put a photo on his FB to prove it↓
He took my wreath off where I had put it.
He also put a picture on, off our late parents on their wedding day in 1968.
  (A postman friend gave me the picture to give my dad.
Now I know who has got it now!)
I am going up again this weekend and hopefully the other brother hasn't messed up the grave like he did last time...
I had run out of time to add the third blog post that covered Valentine's Day.
That will be posted tomorrow! 
I gave hubby a wet sloppy 💋 when he came home.
Meat Free Meal. 
Quick read of the newspaper.
