Enjoying That Coffee Feeling!

Let's find out what everyone is doing, and then stop everyone from doing it - A.P Herbert.
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
My Birthday was in the local newspaper..↓↓↓
Hubby gets ready to go to work.
He has a nice sloppy wet one before he goes.
I stop in a warm bed for a little longer.
Then it time to rise.
The thermal vest goes on once more.
Then it's time to go out for coffee and chat.
I get the newspaper on the way...
Parked up.
Then my friend and I went to the Coffee Shop.
Coffee and toast time.
We had a good yak.
Then we paid a visit to the Charity Shop.
I got some good bargains.
My friend gave me a Birthday Card, Birthday Presents and flowers.
She wished me a Happy Birthday for Monday.
Back home I go.
I put my friend's flowers on the doorstep.
Unpacked my bargains from the Charity shop.
Then I started to write yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
I got the breadmaker out and tried to make a bread mix of Chedder and Sun Dried Tomato.
I carried on writing my blog post.
The washing machine went on.
(Saves me doing over the weekend)
Tea at 3.
I tidied up the kitchen, ready for the delivery of the new cooker! 
Oh dear there was smell of burning coming from the kitchen.
The bread has risen over the pan and some of the dough had dropped on the heated element.
Nice smell of burnt bread!
In the end of the baking programme, the bread wasn't done either!
Will try again tomorrow...
(I will have to go easy on the Yeast this time!)
Hubby came back and a sloppy wet one.
Tea is served!
Wedges with Fish Cakes and Mushies.
We write out this week's shopping list.
Hubby goes off with younger son to do our shopping and the neighbour's shopping.
