Things Can Only Get Better!

I can't cook. I use a smoke alarm as a timer -Carol Siskind
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
No thermal vest needed.
Hubby is back at work today.
Speaking of work, off I go to mine.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
I went and got today's newspaper and next door's magazine.
I slipped into the winter coat, but took off my jumper as I was getting warm.
Rain wasn't forecasted until after I finished.
After I put on my lights, the rain started!
Good job I had my winter coat on, as the summer coat doesn't have a hood!
It rained the whole time I was on duty!
I had one BOING.
Finished in one piece.
I go off to Co-op to do some shopping.
Back home to unpack it all.
Coffee machine went on.
One of my sons came back from school with a Wonky Box.
The soup maker was put back on.
Time for coffee!
Time for some liquid lunch...
Hubby had a good return back to work.
Speaking of work, time to go back to mine.
I put on my summer coat and  hat.
I turn on my lights.
Then wait for my friends to arrive.
Time for a rabbit!
Once it was time to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
It was a bit quiet at first, then went crazy.
A man over the road, fell from his bike and lay in the road. Everyone went over and put him the Rescue position.
Then he stopped breathing. A blanket went up and everyone was taking turns to give him CPR.
One man shouted at me,"Will the lollypop woman stop the traffic coming down!"
I was stopping the traffic to cross the kids over!
Soon the traffic was backing up on my left.
All the car doing U-turns, One Ambulance turned up, the De-fib was being used. The Paramedic also came down to help. 
The kids in cars coming up the road were upset going past the man in the road.Soon the traffic was stopped coming up the road. The woman in her silver grey Land Rover that tried to run me over, had to leave her landy down the bottom of the road and walk up to collect her kids. She huffed and puffed as she went past me twice.
Soon the traffic were stopped coming down at both ends. Some of the general public think I can direct traffic, or stand up where I put on my lights and stop traffic coming down the road.
The Air Ambulance came to see if they could help.
 They had been giving him CPR for 40 minutes now.
Another ambulance arrived as I finished.I went the back way home.
I phoned my boss up and asked I carry on with my job and not direct traffic.
Correct they said.
Time for a much needed brew!
Puts the tea in the oven.
Hubby comes back and has a sloppy wet one.
Yum!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

No Soggy Bottoms Here Thanks!

Any fool can tell the truth,but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well - Samuel Butler.
 Welcome to my Tuesday ⛄
It was nice to have a warm hug,
(And I not to rush out either)
Brew with hug.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he left.
He was laiden with his snooker cue, magic bag for his dad, and mince pies.
I wished him good luck for his snooker match later on.
Then I got up.
Thermal vest goes on, as well as Santa Hat.
While younger son was getting ready to come out with me.
The Pink car was ready to go to a new home.
Loaded it up into Sexy Beast.
Picked up the newspaper.
I went past my late dad's house.
They are putting the roof on the extension they put on the side of the house.
Dropped in to see my friend.
Gave her the car, card and mince pies.
Had coffee and chat and son played some games with her daughters.
Then I was off again to drop off another Christmas Card.
He wasn't in when I knocked the door. I posted his Christmas card through the letter box, and left his bag of mince pies by his front door.
Traffic lights appeared on the way to the Co-op, I went down one road and a truck was blocking the way through, I reversed and just about to come out of junction when a BMW went the way I had been, 
(Then he saw the lorry, and the brake lights went on!) 
My son was surprised I knew all the back roads around here. I delivered mail around here for 20+ years, there would be a problem if I didn't!
I managed to get back onto the main road, there was a long of tailbacks on the otherside of the road due to the Traffic lights. 
We got some bits from Co-op.
Then on to a quick look around a garden centre.
25% of Christmas bits.
I put a mini Christmas tree and tinsel for my parent's grave.
Son made a bee line for the Jigsaws.
£5 off.
I got myself a Nutcracker Soldier which will be added to the rest of my Christmas Decorations.
Next stop was to drop in and see my parents.
As I was waiting at the Road Traffic Island, who happened to go past, the younger gold digging brother of mine. He stared at me when he went past, he probably could feel the burn of my stare when he carried on up the highway!
Then into Sainsburys we went.
Nice car was parked in the car park.
We got some bits.
Then off home we went.
Hubby phoned me when I got back.
His boss ate one of my mince pies and said:
"No soggy bottoms then!"
Next up was to have a quick play with Kenny.
I used up the old bananas and added chocolate chips to the mix.
Mixed it up and put it in the oven.
Son soon completed the 3D jigsaw.
Tea at 3
Now to get 2 blog posts wrote.
The Nutcracker Soldier looks great with all my Christmas things!
I had another meat free tea.
What is behind the Advent Calender Door?
Quick look in today's newspaper.

"The Sign" single released in the US by Ace of Base (Billboard Song of the Year 1994)in 1993.
Hubby texted to say his team won 3-2 and he was on the way back.
Banana Bread made.
Sleep tea time.
When hubby came back, he had a sloppy wet 😘
He didn't win his snooker match.
Excuses excuses.
He should enjoy the rest from it over Christmas.
He can light the Christmas Pudding with the cue tip of his snooker cue on Christmas Day!
(He didn't find that funny, but I did!)

Talk, Talk, & More Talk!

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do - Martha Grimes.
 Welcome to my Thursday 🍄
I had a bit of lie-in this morning.
I gave hubby a quick hug and sloppy wet 💋 before he left to go to work.
I ate my breakfast and enjoyed my first brew of the day.
Today is the 7th anniversary of writing this blog!
Thank you for reading it!
An engineer is coming today to look at why our internet speed is not fast enough.
Now to move to Sewing table out of the way, so he can look at the phone line starts.....
More Gnomes for the garden arrives.
In to the garden they go↓
Now to go and fetch the newspaper.
Has a chat with the woman in the shop.
Then back home I go.
I was looking around for some reasonably priced tickets for Barry Manilow's concert next June in Birmingham....
I found some right near the stage....
Woo Hoo!
I was in the middle of writing yesterday's blog post, when the Engineer arrived.
(Good job I did move the sewing table out of the way in the end)
We got chatting while he was checking the line.
(I bet he was thinking I don't get out much....)
I was telling about the series about 9/11 we are watching.
He escaped up the road to check the box.
When he came back,
I asked "If he ear hurts?"
He laughed, more chin wagging, he kept looking at his watch. He finally tore himself away at 2pm, to get to the next job.
We moved the router about 5 times to see if the speed could get higher. 
Where it was in the first place was the highest speed. 
Late lunch.
Then I chopped up some onions, mushrooms, and garlic.
Fried them up, with the sausages and added vegetables to the red casserole dish.
In the oven it went on...
Belated 
Tea at 3.
Finished writing the blog post.
Oven got turned on.
Watered all the plants outside.
Hubby came home and received a sloppy wet 💋
Casserole was dished up.
Afterwards I had a quick look in the newspaper.
Now to carry on watching about 9/11.
Sleep Tea.
5th episode.
The final episode is on tomorrow.
It's getting quite cold at night...
Topper goes over the duvet now!
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
