Mixing Tears With Rain!

Please Leave Heather For All To Enjoy - Sign in Scottish Highlands
Welcome to my Wet Tuesday ☂
Breakfast and Brew.
It forecasted rain, but there was so nothing.
So I left off the sexy lumo trousers!
I took my rain mac, just in case.
Out I go...
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
Then off to work.
On the way to work, the rain came down!
Gets to work.
I put on my winter coat, summer coat, and waterproof shoes. I walked down to turn on the lights, and walked back up the road to turn on the lights...
I walked back to Sexy Beast, and phoned up hubby to bring my sexy lumo trousers for me on the way to work.
When hubby arrived, he had picked up the wrong size....
I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋 for trying.
Now to get wet!
One red mini on the otherside didn't stop, so he had a BOING!
The rain eased off, but still had wet trousers.
Finished in one piece.
While it was raining, I went down to the alleyway which gets flooded, and all the school kids get wet feet walking to school.
I nipped into the Co-op for the newspaper.
Back home.
I sent a email to the County Councillor about the flooding.Let's see the excuse shall we?
Coffee time.
Just about finished the Pigs in Mud cake.
Just need the cocktail umbrellas...
Now for some lunch.
I spoke to hubby on his dinnerbreak.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
I was not risking getting wet again.
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
Turned on one set of lights and then down to the Charity shop for a yak.
Coming out and turning on my other lights, I didn't like those dark clouds.
I get my big stick out of
Sexy Beast and goes into the square for a rabbit.
Once it was time to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Those clouds were turning more darker.
As I started, my Supervisor appeared with no rain coat.
Then it started to rain very heavily.
I asked him, "As anyone complained about me?"
I told him about what happened last Friday.
He told me not to shout at anyone if they decide to run out into the road.It is Parental Responsibility to look after the kids before I cross them over!
That didn't sit well with me at all. Might have to ask for a second option on that.
Then he asked me how I was feeling after the funeral of my friend.
I burst into a flood of tears.
"Compose yourself for a minute," I was told. 
Talk about Crying in the Rain!
Once I had finished, he left, and I went back to Sexy Beast to get out of my wet coat. 
Home time.
At least the sun came out.
Cup of brew needed.
I got the cake tins, ready for the cake.
I got my Council stuff ready for the meeting later.
I had a light tea, and hubby came back from work. He had a sloppy wet one 💋.
Now for me to leave once more.
On the way, nearly got hit by a white BMW who came out of a side road. He didn't like sticking to speed limit and overtook the next he had.However he couldn't get any further as he was stuck behind a car doing 20 m.p.h.
Gets to the Council meeting in one piece.
Before the start of the meeting, we have a tribute from the Chairman to my late friend.
I burst into a flood of tears. The fellow Councillors looking at me.
We had a good meeting.
The moon was out when I left.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea Time.
After an exhausting day,
I was glad to get into a warm bed!

Back To The Bingeing!

Never try to keep up with the Joneses.It's much cheaper to drag them down to your level - Quentin Crisp 
Welcome to my Thursday 💪
Nice cuppa and hug to start the day!
I got kids up ready for school.
Gave a sloppy wet 💋 to hubby before he left for work.
Gave all kids their 💋💋 before they left for school.
I went outside for some fresh air...
First coffee of the day.
I started on writing my blog post from yesterday.
Still no sign of my paint order!
I checked on the delivery, and they tried at 10 to 7am to deliver it!!!
Funny I didn't hear no knock on the front door!
I gets onto customer services to explain where my house is, and gave them my phone number!
Try again tomorrow!
At least Amazon know where my house is!
My white vinegar arrived!
A bit of that went in the washing machine.
Soon after some Baking Soda went in.
It seems to have done the trick!
When I finished writing my blog post.
Just in time for lunch!
While I was loading up the dishwasher there was a knock at the front door!
The Plumber had arrived to do the check on the boiler \o/
"You found me!" I laughed.
Before heading up the stairs:
I told him there was some buzzing coming from the boiler at night, and it's not the buzzing from my rabbit either!
He laughed.
When he came downstairs, he said the buzzing was the fan from the boiler.
I told him "It's about time the Council replaced the 15 year old boiler by now."
He replied,"It will be soon."
He checked the oven, and the gas meter under the stairs.
I thanked him for coming and said goodbye.
Tea at 3
I fried some beef, with mushrooms, onions and garlic.
Rolled out the pastry, added the bird.
In the oven that went.
While looking on Netflix,
I found a good series right up my street.
The amount of stars in it.
There are 3 seasons to binge on.
A new season started on ITV last month.
Time for pie!

One of teachers at my kids's school is leaving just before Easter.Both kids like him alot.
Ordered a Leaving Card and present.
As when favourite teachers leave, they leave a big hole.
My son is doing a English exam on Creative Writing on the subject Lost tomorrow.
We put our heads together and added more ideas to the great story.
His teacher said earlier that his story reminded him of the tv programme "Lost".
I never watched it. 
It just happens to be on Disney +
So my son started to watch the first series...
Hubby was visiting his dad.
I had some of my own bingewatching to do...
I had my sleep tea earlier than normal.
Hubby came back to have a sloppy wet 💋
He gave me today's newspaper.
Hubby started to fall asleep.
I sent him off to bed as I had the final episode to watch.
Brilliant ending to the first series \o/
Time for bed...
Or so I thought.
I couldn't nod off due to excess snoring.
Back to the sofa for me...
Oh well.....
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Breaking A New One In!

Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Warm hug with brew.
Kids were having a TE day, so they had a lie-in.
Hubby was working from home today.
I too enjoyed a lie-in.
Hubby bought me up a coffee a little time later.
Up I got afterwards.
Then out in the cold to fetch the newspaper.
One of my kids was up, so came out for some fresh air.
Newspaper got.
Nothing happened at my late dad's house.
Back home.

There was only one episode of Top of the Pops to watch tonight from 1990.
Next we watched  Roy Orbison:Love Hurts.
It was such a lovely documentary 
When he died in the December of 1988 I was working in a Newspaper Shop when it came across the radio he had died :(
Next up:
I still have to look away when that music starts..
Hubby was falling asleep and I was looking more at him than the movie.
Time to break in the new duvet cover 🎈
