Hunt The Parcel!

Flattery hurts no one - so long as you don't inhale -
 Adlai Stevenson
Welcome to my Tuesday Hunt the Parcel Time 📭
Where has the sun gone?
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My answers⇊
Breakfast and Brew...
Woke up younger son...
(As I forgot and he was late getting up yesterday)
Time to hit the road....
Hubby still had two lines on his Covid test,
So no sloppy wet one for him ❌
I put on my summer coat.
Went and got my newspaper.
Put on my summer hat, but I still had my gloves on.
Now to put on my lights.
I hope that rain keeps off....
As my Summer coat doesn't have a hood!
Let's go to work 🍭
I gave out a BOING in the first ten minutes.
One van failed to stop on the otherside of the road and gave me such a Black Look!
Another lorry parks over the road on the double yellow lines!
The fun I had when cars were overtaking it, then having to stop for me!
Lots were testing out their brakes!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Home time.
The coffee machine was put on.
Tidied up the living room.
Coffee Time.
I wrote and published 3 blog posts up to lunchtime.
I was expecting my Amazon order anytime now.
Off I went to do the afternoon shift with the CD I bought yesterday.
Put on my summer coat and summer hat.
I went and put on my lights.
Back to Sexy Beast and to get my big stick. 
I sat in the square with one friend to have a rabbit with!
Then it was time to say to goodbye.
"See you tomorrow!" I said to him as I mounted the stairs to my spot.
I had a BOING straight away.
More testing of the brakes, especially on the otherside of the road.
At least the rain kept off!
Finished in one piece.
Back home I went.
In need of a brew!
Amazon had delivered my parcels, but no to me.
Here is where they left them↓
Got onto Amazon about not having my delivery!
Now to get on with cooking the tea...
Got it all made.
In the oven it went.
Hubby came home.
No sloppy wet one for him ❌
Tea is served.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Back to that big King Size bed on my own 🛏

What Did You Call Me?

 Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
The sun is out.
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Now to leave the house.
Dropped off son at work.
Now to visit the Doctors.
I was in there for under 5 minutes.
The Doctor gave me some tablets.
I have to wait for the letter from the hospital.....
Afterwards goes and sees our son at work.
Gets some nice things and enjoyed a coffee.
Then off to Droitwich.
To drop off 5 boxes of books for the Droitwich Lions book Sale.
Good Deed #1 
We decided to visit Bromsgrove and have a look around the Charity Shops.
We parked up.
Looked in one Charity Shop.
The man in charge had changed the CD in the Charity Shop.
The Shadows came on,
My air guitar came out too:
He tried to catch me out with the next song....
"Jimmy Jones & Good Timin' "I said after a few notes came on!
Next Charity Shop, it all kicked off.
But first, I found a good LP↓
I walked to the back of the shop.
An old man on a disability scooter was trying to reverse.
I went, "Bip, Bip,Bip."
"If you think you are being funny, your're not!"He shouted at me.
"Only trying to help!" I shouted back.
"Cheeky Bitch,"He shouted at me in front of everyone.
My husband, said to him,"I beg your pardon!" 
Everyone in the shop stopped and wondered who he was calling that!
I pipped up and said, "Me!"
"No Friday Feeling off him," I said.
Lots of looks at him as he left.
I said to everyone when I left the shop,
"If I ever get that bad, pass me the gun or the pillow!"
Everyone laughed!
On to the next Charity Shop.
Great single I found.
(I already got this one)
Time to go home with the little bargains we got.
Back home.
Light lunch.
The bread tasted yuk!
On the bird table it went.
One bargain went up in the window.
I learnt that Michael Redfern had passed away.
He appeared in the OXO adverts for 16 years.
Here are few of them↓
Tea was put in the oven for later.
Helps write the shopping list out for tomorrow.
Tea is served.
Afterwards a quick look in the newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1965:
The Beatles - Help 
UK No.1 on this day in 1989:
Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers - Swing The Mood
Got the shopping trolley ready for tomorrow's trip to Droitwich.
Is it going to bargains, bargains, bargains?
Sleep Tea time.
Now off to enjoy more Friday Feeling in bed 🎈

Chip Butty Time!

I'm as sweaty as Lucifer in leather leggings dancing at the disco inferno - Anon
I left Sleeping Beauty to snore.
I had nice hot shower. 
I enjoyed a much needed brew!
I wrote Wednesday's blog post.
Hubby got up and made the breakfast.
Now to go off to work...

With added big big sunglasses....
I'm doing an extra hour on top of my normal hours...
It's so warm...
I drove home with the driver's window open...
Off to have my 40 winks!
Wakes up and gets ready for work!
Gives everyone their sloppy 💋💋💋
Big tunes time:
One Audi was having a braking contest with the car in front of him. One blue Mini was struggling to reach 50 speed limit behind me.
Gets in.
Another HOT one!
 Loads up the skip.
Mobile Disco Time!
Well hot and sweaty when I finished!
Big tunes on the way home...
Got back home.
Nice to have fish and chips for tea!
Even had chip butty!
Looked in today's newspaper.
We watched the final episode of 
"Have I Got News For You".
Sleep Tea Time.
Roll on the weekend!
