Easter's Ups and Downs.

 When he said we were trying to make a fool of him, I could only murmur that the Creator had beat us to it - Ilka Chase
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Up nice and early \o/
Breakfast and Brew.
On goes the thermal vest.
First day back on the job!
Out the door I go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
The traffic lights were still on the road I use at the weekend.
I went back to using the route I have been using for the past two months for my sins!
I got to work in one piece after that piece of fun driving I saw!
On goes the summer hat, and winter coat.
Goes and turns on my lights and fetches the newspaper on the way back to Sexy Beast.
Swaps the newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
It was quite quiet to start with.
Then the traffic started to build up, and the BOINGs being handed out.
I might have been away for 2 weeks, but the rules haven't changed.
Everyone asked how my Easter went!
Lots of ups and downs....
At least we got the garden done! 
It was getting warm, so warm the gloves had to come off!
Still had those cars that braked at the last minute.
Finished in one piece.
I got off my Lollipop gear, and popped into the Parish Council to pick up an agenda of the the full council meeting for tomorrow.
Back home I go.
Coffee machine went on.
Booked to have my hair done this week at a different salon.
As there was a offer of 25% off.
Will go into tomorrow and pay the deposit as it is not open on Monday.
Started to sort out the pictures of the catch up of blog posts I will have to do this week.
Put the washing away from the weekend.
Liquid lunch time.
Out to do the afternoon shift.
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Goes and turns on both sets of lights.
Nips into the Charity shop.
Only two CD boxsets I haven't got!
Woo hoo!
Back to Sexy Beast with my hoard!
Collects my big stick.
Off to wait in the square to meet my friends.
Only one friend came and we still had a good rabbit.
Then it was time to do my job.
Said goodbye and started.
It was a bit windy, so couldn't put the big stick right out. One car drove around it!
Boing!
Cars on the otherside wasn't stopping either.
At least it was getting warm!
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
Nice cup of brew!
Put hubby's pizza in the oven.

Gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ when he came home.
Yum!

The Soup Maker's plug was disconnected, then it jumped off the surface and poured all the soup over the floor!
Great!
It went everywhere!
I just had enough soup left in the soup maker for today!

Lighting Up The Planet!

However much a shower control may rotate,the degree of rotation required to change from ice-cold to scalding is never more than one millimetre - Joe Bennett
 Welcome to my warm Hump of the Week 🐫
Heardle time!
Heardle 60s:
Son hadn't done his heardles, and by the time he had done them, I forgot to take a pic of them!
Do'h!
Time for some breakfast with brew.
Dressed.
I got to watering the plants in the garden before it got too warm.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before he went to work.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast. 
Gets the newspaper.
While waiting for the traffic lights to change to green, the car in front must be colourblind, he drove straight through the red light!
Dropped off younger son.
Then off to Bromsgrove.
I had to wait for it open.
That would look nice in my late Father-in-law's garden!
The doors were finally opened.
Half priced garden lights.....
Someone said to me as I was pushing my trolley,
"Hope you have left some for other people!"
I pointed to the loads left on the shelf,
"Of course, I have left loads!"
After paying for them, and loading them up in Sexy Beast. I visit Aldi and gets more bargains.
Final stop was to pick up my paint from Hughes.
There was something going on a the Palace Theatre, as everyone was parking anywhere, including the pavement!
Back home.
Put the coffee maker on.
Put all my lights out in the garden.
Even the bargain from Aldi went out.
Coffee time.
Had a chat with the Postman.
Must be getting old, no post for me,
But plenty for the kids!
The shade was disappearing....
I quickly repotted a plant I bought earlier.
One gnome went with windmills.
Time for a light lunch.
