Reaching For The Gardening Gloves....

Did you really pose for that calendar with nothing on?
"I had the radio on!" - Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to my Sunday Love πŸ’“
Nice big hug...
Brew with breakfast.
Up I got,
Thermal vest goes on.
Lots of chores to do...
Coffee machine goes on....
As does the breadmaker..
Now to get out for some fresh air...
Nips to the local garden centre.
Reminds of someone....
Meets someone in there, I used to work with.
She left the company, 3 weeks ago.
They still haven't replaced me after 2 years!
We loaded the plants in the car.
Then off to Co-op for some reduced food.
One of my friends who I talk to on weekday afternoons was just driving off in his car.
I shouted several times, he finally stopped.
I asked him,"If there were any bargains to be had."
"I didn't see any,"He said.
"I will see you next week, and have a good Sunday!" I said to him.
We get a trolley and look in there.
Loads of reduced food!
Loaded up car, and off to see my parents.
I taking away the pot of plants, as the lavender has died over the winter.
Back home we go.
Unloads the car of food and plants.
The bread was done!
We had sandwiches outside in the sunshine.
Afterwards, he did his thing.
I had some quiet time in the garden to pot and tidy up the garden!
Not bad for 3 hours gardening!
Meanwhile hubby had been getting on with the Roast Chicken Tea.
Yum.
We then caught up with the final episode of "Dragon's Den".
"Have I Got News For You!"
&
Final 2 episodes of the second season of "Fame"
Quick look in the newspaper.

Leaving The Forties Behind...

The longer the title, the less important the job - George McGovern
Welcome to my sweaty hump of the week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I got one son up for school.
Tomorrow is my hubby's 50th Birthday.
The cake is being made when I get back from the lollipop job.
Speaking of that job, off I pop to it!
Nice and warm πŸ‘™
Big big sunglasses time!
The traffic lights had been took away at the bottom of the road now \o/
Summer coat on.
Tree shot.
The fun and games I had again.
I stopped some parents crossing, as 3 cars on the otherside of the road failed to stop and kept going. I still stopped the white car from yesterday again....
Lambo time \o/
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper and magazine for next door neighbour before I got home.
Time to add some bunting to the garden.
Gave my younger son the balloons to pump up 🎈
Then to repot some plants that arrived while I was out.
Used up two bags of compost!
Then I got Kenny out for a quick play....
To make my hubby's Birthday Cake.
Once it was done in the oven.
I let it cooled down.
Now for me to cool down...
Finished the cake!
Writes out my hubby's card.
Wrapped up my hubby's presents.
Salad time!
Puts the cake in the fridge.
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
It clouded over, so I had no sun beaming down on me. 
The traffic was behaving themselves this afternoon. My friend appeared at the end of my shift. We had a good chat for 20 minutes. 
Back home.
Crumpets time!
&
Lolly time.
Then I'm out for the singasong time!
 Gets in, with my cold bottle of water.
Loads up the skip.
I was well warm when I finished!
Now to drip sweat on the way home while singing along.
Gets back.
Nice tea.
I went for a cold bath again.
Then I added the blown up balloons 🎈 to the bunting...
All ready for the Big Birthday tomorrow🎈
