Missing The Number 8!

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful - Mae West
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
I had a big hug off hubby.
Brew with breakfast.
I gave him a sloppy wet 😘 before he left for work.
Shower then dressed.
Then out in Sexy Beast. 
Picks up the newspaper on the way...
Traffic lights everywhere!
Got my B3 space this week!
I have a look around.
Goes into Hobbycraft.
Reminds me of a certain song from a great movie...
Gets a table.
Looks at the local newspaper and sees my Dad's Birthday in there :)
My friend comes....
Now to order....
We have a good yak.....
Still raining when we left.
More traffic lights on the way home...
Yodel had found my house,
However they delivered a box for the factory next door. I redelivered it to next door.
Now to drop off the kids...
One to work,
The other one is helping to sort out the uniform for the uniform bank tomorrow.
I went round to see if any of the gold digging brothers had given my dad anything for his birthday yesterday 
The 8 balloon 🎈 was missing :(
Someone had put a bunch of flowers in the pot of lavender....
I had a quiet word with my parents...
Will be up again tomorrow \o/ 
Back home.
Light lunch.
Now to catch up with the blog.
I wrote two blog entries.
Tea at 3.
Both kids had finished.
They were only 15 minutes from home, 
I would have took me 20 minutes to pick them up, so they walked home.
(They were not happy about that!)
At least the uniform is ready for tomorrow.
