Pushing Me To The Limit!

 When all else fails, and the instructions are missing... kick it -
Welcome to my Saturday 👅
Nice warm hug to start Saturday with.
Breakfast with Brew.
Now to listen to "The Sounds of the 60's"
The Top 3 is from 1969. 
Diana Ross,The Supremes,& The Temptations-
I Gonna Make You Love Me.
Peter Sarstedt - Where Do You Go To (My lovely?)
Amen Corner - (If Paradise) is Half As Nice 
Thermal vest went on.
Now off out.
Dropped off son at work.
Now to do the shopping.
Just parked the car, when a woman came out of Lidl and just was gawping at me, especially when I got out of the car.
Under my facemask, I said:
"Do you want a picture?"
We done the week's shopping.
My younger son did my neighbour's shopping.
Then the rain came down.
Further visits to Food Warehouse, Home Bargains and Morrisons, I stopped in the car.
Then back home, in the rain.
7 parcels were put under the garden table.
I put the coffee maker on,
As well as the soup maker.
Helped put the shopping away.
Now for Coffee
My Godfather books arrived.
Now for some soup!
Gets all my things ready for the Tarot and Crystal Course.
Gets dropped off.
Learns more about crystals and moving onto doing our own Tarot Reading.
That hour went quick.
Bought something to help to learn what colour crystals I need to use during Charka crystal healing.
Gets picked up.
Back home to drop off my Course Paperwork.
Now back out.
I couldn't get what I wanted anywhere else except for Dunelm.
Got it.
Then went somewhere to look at a new gas cooker.
Oh dear, the Salesman had to deal with an awkward customer, so we had to wait.
I was going to wait another 5 mins before leaving.
Some nice new Kennys
The Salesman finally got that sale wrapped up,just in time.
First he tried to flog the warranty for the cooker to me:
3 years - £186
5 years - £214
No thanks
Then for it to be delivered (£20).
Uninstall the old cooker was extra as well.
 £90 to install the new one and take the old one away.
To unwrap the new cooker, was extra.
I told him no thanks for that.
The Plumber we had 3 times before, only charged £60 to uninstall and install the currant gas cooker.
(He didn't like that)
I was waiting for him to knock some off...
(£20 was added on for delivery)
He in the end, knocked off £50.
I only hope they find my house when they delivery next week, as he scrolled down the addresses for my postcode, and my house wasn't on, but my neighbour was. 
The receipt for my oven was given the previous customer, who had already left the store with it, before I got to pay for it! 
They printed another one off for me before I left.
I had to nip back into Dunelm for something.
Oh dear, one person on the till. The queue was backing up, the till operator was asking for more staff to go on the till, no one came.
One woman in the queue behind us, put her stuff down, left the store. Two people who were in the queue after standing there for 10 minutes, decided to put their facemasks on!
I paid for my purchase finally, and out of there I went!
Back home.
Hubby started on the tea.
Quick look in today's newspaper.

 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice to start the Hump with warm hug.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋.
It is supposed to be warm later...
The summer coat went on.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
There was a build of traffic on my side of the road. A BMW failed to stop even with my lollipop sticking out, narrowly missed his windscreen.
Going towards the end of my shift.
I am stood in the middle of the road, crossing people over the road.
When a black 64 Renault car didn't want to wait for me to go back on the pavement.
He mounted the pavement, drove across it , and then drove off down the road!
I will track down this car and report it.
Could have knocked someone down on the pavement!
Once finished, I popped into the Co-op as they had a offer on coleslaw! 
I picked up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Washing machine went on.
Now to make a sausage casserole for later.
Leeks, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, sausage and mash was added to cast iron pot.
Hung the washing on the line to dry.
A box arrived for me...
I finally got the whole set of Prima Makes magazines!
The missing one!
Now for a bit of coffee..
with light lunch.
The sun is out!
Nice to see the sun back again!
Summer coat goes on.
Once I put on my lights.
Nice to soak up some rays before I start!
Now to start the afternoon shift.
One woman driving an open car, totally ignored my stick up in the air....
One BMW had to stop,or my stick would have cracked its windscreen.
Survived that shift!
Back home I go.
I got yesterday's blog wrote.
Hubby came back for a sloppy wet 💋
Time to dish up the sausage casserole!
We had 2 vouchers for Lidl to use up tonight.
Armed with a long list.
We went shopping.

We got £10 off our shopping \o/
Back home to unpack it all.
After that, we watched the new Netflix doc:
I had one eye on the telly and the other in today's newspaper.

I Don't Do Floppy!

        Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? - Mae West
Welcome to my Tuesday 💪
Nice warm hug with brew.
Gets kids up as they having the First injection of the Covid-19 vaccine.
I give hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he goes to work.
We soon follow out of the door.
Gets the newspaper on the way. 
One son wanted me to go in with him while he has jab.
The woman on the door, say:
"His brother can go with him the same time as his jab."
"That's good, I won't hear the screams from my car,"I replied walking back to Sexy Beast.
"So we have to hear them then?"She replied.
A good 20 minutes they came out. Sore arms, but everything was fine.
Back home for a much needed coffee.
Does a bit of housework.
Now to plan for tonight's evening meal.
I need mushrooms and garlic!
Out again....
Gets some more nice room spray for the bathroom!
Plus a king size yellow sheet was in the sale :)
Got the bits I need for tonight's tea from  Lidl.
Back home.
Chops up the mushrooms, onions and garlic,
Then put it the pan for later.
Next was to water the garden.
I put the things back up on the wall by the front door.
(He can take them back off when he applies the second coat)
The paint has now come, so hopefully the second coat will be applied tonight 🤞
Light lunch time.
Now to get and write yesterday's blog post.
Tea at 3. 
I was doing my research on getting a embroidery machine.
