Glad of Coffee At This Difficult Time!

Never say you know a person until you have divided an inheritance between them - Johann Lavater
Good Friday
We are still reeling from the death of my hubby's dad. (My father-in-law).
No hugs until the single line appears.
Brew with breakfast.
I got dressed.
(Thermal vest goes on)
I leave the house.
I gets the newspaper first.
Then onwards to the garden centre.
 The first trolley I got, the bottom was scraping on the floor.
I got a second one.
Time to look around.
I got my plants and to put them into Sexy Beast.
Now to go off with for a coffee,chat and nibble with my good friend.
I took a flatjack back to hubby.
I got upset after I had my flatjack.
Still in shock from losing my father-in-law.
Said goodbye to my friend.
Back home I go.
Empties the car of all the plants.
Now to enjoy some rays of vitamin D.

 Liquid lunchtime.
Enjoyed the sun rays.
Then out I went with kids to do the shopping in Bromsgrove Lidl.
Gets back to unpack all the shopping.
Once tea was done.
Out I go to gets some petrol and pick up a magic bag.
Nice full moon tonight.
Nips into Morrisons.
Nice full moon over the house.
Let's have a look in a Magic Bag.
We watched Have I Got News For You.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Pass The Fan Over Please!

Nothing makes a person more productive than the last minute - Anon

 Welcome back to join me on my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Hugs with brew.
I put out the washing on the line to dry.
Back to work today.
Hubby has got the week off work \o/
(Plenty of things for him to do...)
Quick coffee..
Big big sunglasses go on..
Off to work I go.
I was asked if I wanted to do more hours, as I can't clean the whole house in my allotted time.
When he came back, I suggested more time on both days.....
I was hot and sweaty when I finally finished.
Hubby was sitting in the front garden.
Lunch time
Nice to chill out in the shade!
Even had cake later as well!
Now to get the things ready for my other job.
I gave out sloppy wet 💋💋💋 before I left.
Now for some singalong..
As normal I have fun with other drivers.
Today was no exception.
One black Mitsublishi SUV was sitting on my arse the whole way to work.
Didn't like doing 50mph.
I gets into work.
I bring a bottle of water with me.
Loads up the skip with the hoover.
I was so hot when I got finished!
 More singing to do:
I had a gold top coloured Fiat 500 follow me the part of the way, he didn't take kindly to doing 20mph, he ducked down a side road.
A blue Lupo in front pulled in front of a large Skoda at the traffic lights...
Further up the road, the gold top coloured Fiat 500 appeared at a side road, trying to be clever backfired!
It had trouble trying to catch up with me, doing 50mph!
Nearly home, one Audi with its roof down, didnt fancy doing 40mph, and overtook at 60mph and then turned off at the next side road!
Finally back home!
 Hubby finished painting the sides of the stairs with the yellow paint I bought :)
Tea in the garden!
Quick look into today's newspaper.
