Going Round And Round!

Dancing with her was like moving a piano - Ring Lardner
 Welcome to my Tuesday 🍭
A warm hug to start the day!
Brew with Breakfast.
The tea tasted RANK, as the water filter was running out in the kettle...
YUK YUK YUK!πŸ’©
I will change the filter when I get back.
Thermal vest went on....
While hubby was getting dressed.
Time to reveal Sexy Beast.
That had been a early frost.
So no scraping for me!
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy one.
 When I got to the car park, the entrance gate was locked, reversed Sexy Beast, and had to go through the no entrance gate instead.
Two winter hats and warm gloves went on.
Locked Sexy Beast, zipped up my coat, then dropped one of my gloves on the floor.
I'm not undoing my coat, let's play try to pick up glove with my big stick....
Done!
While waiting to put on my lights.
Someone asked: 
"If I cross the kids here?"
"No, further down the road,"I replied.
Once I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
My big stick and me kept turning invisible!
Felt like the Invisible lady.....
One car braked hard on the otherside of the road, the car behind nearly smacked into the car in front!
Plenty of BOINGs were given out!
I don't feel wearing blue flashing lights and music will stop those car drivers who fail to stop!
Anyhow I finished one piece!
I had a chat with my friend with his dog for 10 minutes.
I went to the Petrol Station to get some fuel.
The Petrol filler cap kept going round and round.
Not coming off. I asked one of the staff in the petrol station to help. Still going round and round!
I left with getting fuel...
I will see if hubby has the magic know-how how to get it off!
Picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the Coffee Machine.
Tried to look on You Tube to see if there is a way to get the petrol cap undone....
Nope was the answer.
Time for a much needed coffee!
Then onto writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done.
I finished off the soup....
I will make some more later.
Now for round 2.
I saw my friend again and had another chat for 10 minutes.
It didn't half feel cold.
The two hats went on, as well as warm gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now time for a rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for Round 2.
It was cloudy, so no low lying sun to worry about. So there was no excuse not to stop!
Two cars overtook a man on a bike, coming up the road. The white BMW realised at the last minute there was a pedestrian refuge island in the middle of the road.
He then had to drop behind the man on the bike!
I had to give out the normal BOINGs!
Finished in one piece!
Home Time.
I put the soup maker back on .
Put our tea in the oven.
Made the salad for when the tea is ready to be served up.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one.
He went out to look at my petrol cap.
Quick jiggle about, and it came off!
Magic hand saves the day!
 Now for tea.
Veggie Quiche with salad.
Now to watch another episode of:
Looked into today's newpaper.
Terence Wright , known as Adam Faith, was an English singer, actor, and financial journalist. A teen idol, he scored consecutive No. 1 hits on the UK Singles Chart with "What Do You Want?" (1959) and "Poor Me" (1960). He became the first UK artist to lodge his initial seven hits in the top 5, and was ultimately one of the most charted acts of the 1960s. He was also one of the first UK acts to record original songs regularly. Faith also maintained a successful acting career, notably appearing as Dave in the teen exploitation film Beat Girl (1960), the eponymous lead in the ITV television series Budgie and Frank Carver in the BBC comedy drama Love Hurts
.
He died on this day in 2003 aged 62
UK No.1 on this day in 2002:
Christina Aguilera - Beautiul
UK No.1 on this day in 2007:
Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby
USA No.1 on this day in 2014:
Pharrell Williams - Happy
We caught up with 2 more episodes of Top of the Pops from 1992.
Erasure was at number 1 with Abba-esque EP
Following week,

Sleep Tea time.
Roll on Hump Day tomorrow 🐫

Breaking Them In!

Brass bands are all well in their place - outdoors and several miles away - Thomas Beecham
It's so nice to be on the Wobbly Work Wheel🎑
Nice hug with brew.
Breakfast.
I gets up one son for school.
What to wear today???
Something cool.....
I gives out wet sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Now to leave...
&
Big big sunglasses..

 
Now to break in my new trainers 
&
New rim on my lollypop stick!
On goes the summer coat as well.
Tree Pic.
Now for the fun to start...🎈
I only started when someone in a black car came speeding down the road at the same time I had my Lollipop stick out in front of me trying to cross some children over.
He looked at me, I looked back...
Two choices...
Stop or windscreen will get a crack in it!
He stopped \o/
No sports cars this morning.
At least the sun was out, and getting the rays!
Finished in one piece!
Back home.
Coffee time!
The youngest son finally got up!
Now to see a man about some new carpet!
He didn't have enough red carpet for the landing :(
The purple was a tad expensive.
I told him I don't do grey carpet....
The red stripes looked nice....
Number 1 in Redditch! For a bit more I could get the stairs done as well.
(I have had the stairs carpet at 2 other properties I lived in since 1996!)
All bought and paid for...
Nice carpet in the house ready for the weekend!
Nipped into Sainsburys for some salad.
Last stop was the garden centre.
Picked out some house plants.
Now for coffee...
Son had a nice doughnut...
After drinking and eating, we went to look about the store.
£799
I found some houseplants half price.
I picked up a Peace Lily, and 2 Mother in laws tongue plants at half price.
When I got to the till, I had a bit of ado with the sales assistant who tried to charge me for the plastic saucer the Peace Lily was sitting in.
I told her to keep it and take it off the bill.
It came with plant, she wouldn't have it.
So I got the plant and not the saucer! 
Plants put on the back seat of Sexy Beast. 
When I got home, I repotted the plants.
Just had enough compost!
Even got a Venus Fly Trap!
Light lunch.
Now back out into the sunshine..
The summer coat goes on.
It's not supposed to rain until later..
We will see...
Some car drivers are ignoring the new rim on my lollipop stick and driving under it!
One day it will go BOING BOING on their roof as they drive past!
Finished in one piece..
Had a good yak with my friend for a good 40 minutes!
I said goodbye and hopefully see him soon.
Back home.
I ate a 50p meal I bought from Co-op yesterday..↓
I will be glad of the Stir Fry tomorrow night!
Now to write yesterday's blog post...
Hubby arrived from seeing his dad.
Now to catch up with today's newspaper...

Now time to get off the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑

The thing with high-tech is that you always end up using scissors - David Hockney
Welcome to my Sunday🎈
Picking up another sewing machine later....
Nice drive out...
I wakes up at 7am...
Leaves sleeping beauty along to snore..
Looks out the front door,
Is that a rain cloud or not?
 Too early to be up on a Sunday↓
 Enjoys a brew↓
 Once Sleeping Beauty rose from the warm pit.
We had breakfast, dressed, and out for a much needed walk↓

 Woo hoo a big monster↓
 It still has the receipt from John Lewis for £400 back in 1993!
Pork Tea↓
 For the next two hours I was trying to get the machine to sew a bobbin....
Nothing happened....
Uses the other sewing machine to do that.
It uses a special bobbin, so can't use the metal or plastic ones other machines can use.
Found some on Ebay.......
Now to see if it can sew!!!
2 Hours later....
A lot of blue language....
I move the foot petal a bit.....
*Hey Presto!!!!!*
*It's sews!!!!!* 
 I put some spare material in , and away I go!
I looked how much a new foot petal would be......
£220!!!!!!!
(I could get another machine for that!!!)
Let's hope tomorrow,
It's play ball and works.......
After that...
I was so glad of some sleep tea after that 🎑
