It's Finally Coming Off!

 I've got a hair in my mouth. That takes me back - Lilly Savage
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
It was nice to have a warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Woke up the kids for school.
Gave everyone their sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Now to leave the house.
Time for those big big sunglasses to come out.
It was still too cold to put on my summer coat.
The winter one came out.
Tree pic.
This is where the fun starts...
Still cars look up at the lollypop stick when they drive under it.
I just roll my eyes and let them get on with it!
I haven't seen Flintstone since Monday, so perhaps she is getting her brakes sorted!
I saw the lambo today \o/
I finish in one piece.
Now to get my haircut!
We had a good yak while the hair was being shaved off!
Feel so much better afterwards!
Says my goodbyes.
Gets today's newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
Then it's home.....
For a much needed coffee
I put the ham joint in the oven ready.
Made the sage and onion stuffing ready to put in the oven.
Vegetables in the saucepan ready.
As we ran out of soup,
I had a rather nice pot noodle for lunch.
Then I had to go out for my second Covid vaccine.
Waited in the waiting room.
In the left arm it went.
Waited for 15 minutes before going back to Sexy Beast.
Finally got my Limerick done!
There once was a woman called Polly.
Who was the local lolly .
 Dressed in yellow, she was so jolly. 
When the cars didn't stop, she did despair,
 To which she gave them the evil glare.
The councillor has been reelected to where I do my lollipop job took a photo of me doing my job last week....
Speaking of job.
I didn't fancy hunting for a parking space in the public car parks and not finding one.
I parked in the Co-op and bought some tins of soup while I was there.
Then I had to walk up the High Street,
(I chose to wear my summer coat)
Turned on my lights, then sat down on the bench to enjoy some vitamin D before I started.
Once I started the fun started.
99% of cars stopped.
However the 1% decided not to stop and keep going under the stick to disappear up the road.
Once I finished in one piece.
Nice long walk back to Sexy Beast.
Back home
Nice cup of brew with crumpets.
I switched Cds, from 70s to 60s...
Now for the roadtrip to work...
Once I got in.
I sorted the skip out ready for work.
I got the cleaning done.
I was asked about the blue mop and bucket.
Yes I said I have those, but no pole to attach the mop head to!
Put the skip back and out came the hoover to the do the staircase.
I couldn't do much more as the Painter was doing work on the First Floor.
Put the hoover back.
Finished on time today \o/
Back on the 60s....
Back home.
At least it's not raining!
Now enjoy some tea.
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Leaving A Sunday Trail...

“As long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?”
Cassandra Clare,
City of Ashes
Welcome to a sunny Sunday!
 No lie-in for me...
So much to cram in...
 At least the sun is shining😎
I go to work with some good tunes to listen and sing along to ....
 
It was nice to see the sunshine again when I finished↓↓↓
 I leave hubby and one of my sons to errect my new greenhouses...
I take the other son shopping...
 
 Big big sunglasses time πŸ•Ά
When I finished my shopping, I got a takeaway Mocha using my new cup!
I put it in the trolley, and told me son to make sure it doesn't fall over in the trolley, while he pushed the trolley.......
I went to pay for sandwiches for him and his brother, when I noticed a large coffee trail from when he had been standing to further up the shop to where he was standing........
It was a massive eye roll moment!
One of the staff cleaned up the coffee trail.
I was not happy, I was left with half a cup of Mocha!
I gets home to crack the whip....
 No sandwiches for us↓
 It was nice to sit and enjoy the garden!
 
 
 I went round to see my dad.
While there, he had his telephone on loud speaker....
Very interesting conversation with his lady-friend.....
"I could stop over and sleep on the sofa,"My dad said.
"I'm not have your frame ruining my carpet!"She replied to that.
"I have changed my telephone line supplier, the one  my late wife signed up for,and it's getting expensive...." My dad said.
She replied, "Well your late wife did make some bad choices.......!!!!!"
I had heard enough, I said goodbye to my dad and left!
I got home to put the evening meal in the oven....
Then to catch up with the Birthdays, while everyone had showers....
