Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!

Life  is painful, nasty and short.. in my case it  has only been painful and nasty - Djuna Barnes
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΏπŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘
Nice warm hug to start the day with :)
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Now out of the house I go...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
It wasn't that warm.
On goes the two winter hats and gloves.
I turn on my lights.
Now for the fun....🍭
I only had one car to give the BOING to.
One stroppy car driver didn't want to stop, put her foot down, when I was starting to put the big stick out, she went a bit of further down the road, and then had to wait to get round a parked  car!
Nice to have chat with parents and people walking their dogs and getting their newspapers!
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper, on the way to visit my mum and dad.
I had a shock when I got there!
All the flowers that was on their grave was put by the bench???????
I put the flowers back.
The blue vase, the new flowers I bought them at Christmas, the new basket of daffs, the pot of roses, pink roses and the sun charging yellow flower had gone!
This what the grave looked liked on Saturday when I left it.
I was so angry 😑😑😑😑😑
That gold digging younger brother didn't even bring any flowers for Mother's Day.
It looks like he has took off things I bought for our parent's grave and put them somewhere else!
Tight fisted isn't a word I would call it!
I needed to unwind my anger....
Time to do some singing on the way back home...
Coffee machine went on...
Time to write yesterday's blog post and do some singing along with it!
Time for some liquid lunch.....
I sent my younger gold-digging brother a stern email. 
Wasting my time with him,
Drawing a very long line underneath it.
Now for part 2..
Big big sun glasses time.
On goes the summer coat and hat.
I turns on my lights.
Meets up with my friends for a nice rabbit..
Sits on the bench to soak up some rays.
Says goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
The temperature was going down, and it was getting cold!
Pity I left my gloves in the car!
Had no trouble stopping the cars this afternoon.
Quite amazed was I!
Finished in one piece.
Hometime.
Needed a much need brew to warm up!
Made a Onion and Walnut Tarte Tatin.
The only thing I forgot to add was the Dolcelatte!
I did Spinach, mushrooms, red onion and garlic, lentils to it.
Hubby came home.
Nice big wet sloppy one ...
Tea is ready.
Yum!
Afterwards, time to look in today's newspaper.

What's That Dropping Down My Leg????

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ™ˆ
Really nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
The hall car park wasn't open, so I parked around the corner.
2 winter hats were put on, as well at gloves.
It was a cold one.
Turns on my lights.
Time to Rock 'n' Roll...🍭
Some cars were in a hurry, so they didn't stop!
I felt something sliding down by body,
I got back to the pavement just in time!
It fell down by my feet...
Not knickers, or leggings...
But my Bum Bag!
I left it on the gatepost until I finished.
At least I finished in one piece!
I gets my newspaper on the way to the coffee date.
I met my friend for coffee, chat, and nibble.
Couldn't find where you can get toast on the screen.
In the end we went to the Cashier.
I paid for an Americano coffee.
It wasn't on the machine.
I was told to press the Black coffee and then add milk!!!!!
Trouble is they only had semi-skimmed milk!
So I had to go into the supermarket and buy a pint of full fat milk!
The whole time I had taken to get it, buy it and get back to the cafe, I had sung very loud  along with:
Now to get on drinking my "Coffee" and eating my toast!
I needed another coffee after I finished that one.
So I had to get the black coffee and add my milk and enjoy the "Americano" coffee.
Soon as finished, said goodbye to my friend.
One car nearly hit me in the car park, he left it at the last minute to brake.
Didn't I shoot him a look!
Back home in one piece!
It was a bit late to put on my coffee machine.
So I had some ground coffee instead.
After reading my emails, and I ran out of time to go on my spin bike.
Early lunch time!
Now I have my mobile phone playing up!
Great!
Now for part 2.
Winter hat and gloves on.
I put on my lights. 
I only have one friend to chat to up to the start of the afternoon shift.
I wish her a good time at her work.
Now for me to start at mine.
Some stopped the last minute, some just carried on.
At least I finished in one piece.
My other friend arrived and we had a chat by my Sexy Beast.
He had dropped off his car this morning to be MOT. He went to collect it in the afternoon, while walking into the garage forecort, he sort someone has swept up bit of red plastic bumper and windscreen glass into a pile.
He found out who it belonged to, as parked next to his car, was a red one, with the bumper pushed into the car and the back window glass was missing.
We carried on talking until 4.10pm.
It was getting dark by now.
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow.
Then the fun starts...
Stuck behind a RAC van doing 20 m.p.h  and no chance of overtaking it!
Glad to get home after that!
I covered up Sexy Beast.
I got on with making the tea for tonight.
I ran out of time to write yesterday's blog.
Just as got a far as uploading the photos from yesterday.
I updated my CV on the on-line site I go for jobs on.
My Advent calender arrived...
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Time for the veggie option.
It was lovely!
Quick read of the newspaper afterwards.

Sleep Tea Time.
Going to bed early after the day I have had!

The Bag Will Have To Wait!

The advantage of a classical education is that it enables you to despise the wealth that it prevents you from achieving 
- Russell Green
 
Hey Ho the Friday Feeling is back 🍿
It would have been my late mum's 76th Birthday today 🎈
The balloon 🎈 might be late coming,
At least I still remember! 
Has a brew and hug.
Breakfast.
Hubby gets the newspaper for me.
I give him a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he goes off to work.

Quick read of the newspaper↓
William Scott "Jack" Elam was an American film and television actor best known for his numerous roles as villains in Western films and, later in his career, comedies (sometimes spoofing his villainous image). His most distinguishing physical quality was his misaligned eye. Before his career in acting, he took several jobs in finance and served two years in the United States Navy during World War II.
Elam played in 73 movies and made appearances in 41 television series. Some of his more memorable performances were in Once Upon a Time in the West, High Noon, Support Your Local Sheriff!, and on the anthology series The Twilight Zone, and on the series Gunsmoke. 
He would have been 100 years old🎈 
He died in 2003 aged 82
 I have my delivery of food from Star Bargains arrive
Light lunch time.
I watched a few episodes of Hell's Kitchen season 7.
Jay with the blue hair is appearing in Season 19 Hell's Kitchen.
I left it running while I carried on sewing the bag I was making.
I sewed on the front detail of the bag.
I sewed the ribbon on the back detail.
Then the sewing machine started playing up!
Grrrrrrrr
Time to take the sewing machine apart!
Got all the dust out, and gave it a good clean.
Put all back together again.
Lost my will to live after that fun.
I will finish the bag tomorrow.
I popped the cards I ordered for next neighbour around to him, as they arrived \o/
Now to get the tea on the go....
Homemade pasta sauce,I added mushrooms, onion, spinach, garlic and chorizo.
I used up 3 types of pasta as well.
We carried on watching season 7 of Hell's Kitchen.
A couple hours later, I became unwell.
Off to bed for a early night for me to sleep it off.
So much for enjoying the Friday Feeling🎈
