Pigs in Mud Cake, Is A Winner!

There are two things in life I like hard and one of them is eggs - Mae West

Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to load the cakes into Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
I dropped off my cakes↓
Now to get the summer coat and summer hat on 
Big big sunglasses.
I walked down to turn on the lights and came back to pick up my big stick.
Now to turn on the other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
The sun shining and it being Friday Feeling.
Double Bubble!
I told one of the parents about the Macmillian Coffee morning in the village hall this morning.
He was going to his Father-in-law's funeral this morning. 
There were a few cars failing to stop on the otherside of the road.
I finished in one piece.
I took off my coat, hat and stick and left it in Sexy Beast. 
Now to set up my cakes.
There were 5 more bakes going into the Baking Competition.
Someone made 8 bakes to sell off.
I went down the road for a coffee.
I had a toasted teacake.
My younger son had caught the bus to join me.
One friend also joined us.
We walked back up to the High Street to the Village Hall.
All the cakes were ready to be judged by the WI.
We all have a drink and piece of cake waiting for the results.
I chatted to some many people, some I hadn't seen for years. We all talked about our lovely friend, Jill that passed away.
Then the results were in.
I wasn't mentioned at Third place, or Second Place.....
"Pigs in Mud" and my name was read out.
I was in shock!
Photo time!
The cakes were being auctioned off and not going for much. So the decision was made to have my cakes back. I was going to cut up the winning cake and give the slices away to friends.
I put the cakes back in Sexy Beast. 
We popped into Morrisons to get the newspaper. 
Pity they didn't have a Minion outfit big enough for me↓
Back home.
Quick lunch.
Chatted with hubby on his lunchbreak.
I cut the Piggie cake up.
Now to deliver some...
I went around to see my late friend's hubby.
I gave out some warm hugs when he got upset.
I gave him some cake, and I said to him:
"This isn't just any cake, this is winning chocolate cake!"
I told him I will come around again soon :)
Drove to work.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat with those big big sunglasses.
I gave one of my friends, a tin of piggie cake.
Turned on both lights.
Then we all had a rabbit in the square.
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Now to start my afternoon shift.
I told all the parents I won the Bake Off competition. I won't be crossing one parent over in 2 weeks time as she is moving over to the otherside of the village :(
I still have last minute brakers.
Loads of traffic to deal with.
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
My friend had given my two boxes of things to sort through. I kept the candles. The red velvet curtains are gong to uni with the younger son next year.
Framed my certificate
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
We watched a good film I bought on Blue-ray
Brilliant film!
We caught up on the news...
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy some more Friday Feeling 🎈

I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
Now onto work...
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
I go and walk down the road to turn on my lights. I came back up to get my big stick.
Next to put on the other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
Still had to last minute brakers not helping the situation. At least the rain kept off.
Lots of postive feedback about my cake.
Finished in one piece.
Filled Sexy Beast up with fuel and got the newspaper.
Back home.
Coffee time.
Finished the
Pigs in Mud cake.
Now to leave to go to Kidderminster Hospital.
Round and round the car park three times to find a car parking space. There was nowhere to park on the side roads. One more go around the car park and found one space.
I had to pay up front.
I had to wear a facemask when I got in there.
I had one part of what needed doing, I refused the second part as I knew what would happen if I let them do it.
I decided not to pay for more parking and eat in the cafe, I came home instead.
Light lunch.
Talked to hubby on his dinnerbreak.
Then out I go to the afternoon shift.
Puts on my summer hat and summer coat on.
Puts on the lights and walks down the Charity Shop.
Time for a ride....🐴
After that fun.
I turned on my lights and went to get my big stick out of Sexy Beast.
We all had a rabbit in the square.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
Some car drivers were leaving it really late to stop.
At least they did!
One BOING for one car on the otherside of the road.
Finished in one piece.
Cup of brew time.
I put the tea in the oven.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
T.V time.
Sleep Tea Time.
Boxed the cakes ready for tomorrow.
