Bad Tuesday Again!

Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Tuesday 💦
Nice big hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with breakfast.
We did all the Heardles.
No need for the Thermal vest \o/
Hoping nothing is going to happen today.
As it normally does on a Tuesday!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
I goes and gets the newspaper first.
I slips into the Summer Coat and hat.
With big big sunglasses.
I puts on my lights.
Now off to work I go....
Some on the otherside were not STOPPING, my stick is not quite long enough to tap their windscreen!
Talked to some of the parents.
They hoped tomorrow would go alright.
Finished in one piece.
It's getting warm.
Gets home.
The coffee machine goes on.
I change into a tee-shirt.
All the windows are opened.
Now to wait for the council to do some repairs.
Coffee time.
 The bread maker and soup maker goes on.
Caught up with some blogging.
The council man comes and as he turns off the water under the sink.
The container under the pipe to the washing machine is full of water.
The pipe is leaking again for the second time in 9 months.
Once the council man did the repair, I thanked him for doing it.
Gets onto the place where I bought the washing machine.Fobbed off and said I have to phone Bosch now.
Before I did, now for some light lunch.
Off to do round 2.
I put on my summer coat and walked to put on my lights. On the way to get a cold lollypop, I bump into someone I chat to in the morning.
He was having a bad Tuesday, he doesn't like Tuesdays. I told him I was having a bad Tuesday.
We now have 2 members of the Bad Tuesday Club.
Off to get a ice cold lolly!
Only one friend turns up, as my other friend was running late.
Time for a little rabbit...
When it was time to start.
My friend then goes off home.
Cars were stopping myside, 
The other side, they were stopping in the Keep Clear space..
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Nice cold lolly to cool down.
Carried on writing my blog.
Phoned up Bosch.
Because I work weekdays, I would have preferred a Saturday for the engineer to come out.
Nothing for 3 months.
Handwashing for 3 months then I said.
Someone is coming out next week.
Gets on with the tea.
Hubby has a sloppy wet one when he comes back.

Snowball Time!

The illegal we do immediately.The unconstitutional takes a little longer - Henry Kissinger
Welcome to my Friday 👯
Brew with a warm hug.
Hubby is still running a high temperature.
We are awaiting the results of Covid tests from yesterday for us to see our Doctors.
Gets the kids up to do their on-line lessons.
We lie in bed listening to the radio.
Hubby is still looking green .
I get dressed and I need to do something!
Empties the bins in the house.
Loads and puts on the dishwasher.
Cleans the top of the oven, microwave and cleans out the fridge.
Coffee time after that!
Off out for some fresh air and a little ride in 
Sexy Beast.
I gets the newspaper.
Next stop to do a little bit of shopping.
Oh dear.....
There was only two till operators. So we all queued down the aisle, someone tried to push in to get served before us of all.
One old biddie told them to join the queue. She got the message. I had one old boy who didn't unstand the 2 meter rule. Once I loaded my things on the till belt, he was standing next to me!
I had the result of my Covid Test come through.
Paid for my shopping and left the store.
Gets home.
Unpacks the shopping.
We both phone our doctors up to have telephone appointments.
Quick lunch.
 Guess the year time!
My Doctor phone me first.
He is putting in for a chest X-ray first.
As having a 6 week cough is rather worrying.
I did point out my hubby's late mum, had a long term cough, she kept going back to her Doctors from the September, in the December of the same year, she was told she had terminal lung cancer. She didn't smoke, but caught it from second hand smoke.
She passed away in the following April.
I mentioned I am tea-total for nearly 8 years.
He is also a tea-total for 3 years!
That broke the ice! 
Just have to wait for the appointment for the chest x-ray.
Hubby's doctor phoned and it sounds like he has a very serious chest infection!
As we have snow forcasted over the weekend.
I decided to do
 our shopping and next door's shopping today while the sun is out!
Grabs the shopping list and out the door we went.
 A ex-boyfriend went past in a van and actually put his hand up!
He even waited up the top of road, when I reversed off my drive.
Off to Lidl's we went.
We finished before it got dark!
We got back before hubby!
(He was picking up his perscription!)
I got some great bargains from Lidl↓↓
 After I put the shopping away.
Time to look in the today's newspaper.
