Pigs in Mud Cake, Is A Winner!

There are two things in life I like hard and one of them is eggs - Mae West

Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to load the cakes into Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
I dropped off my cakes↓
Now to get the summer coat and summer hat on 
Big big sunglasses.
I walked down to turn on the lights and came back to pick up my big stick.
Now to turn on the other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
The sun shining and it being Friday Feeling.
Double Bubble!
I told one of the parents about the Macmillian Coffee morning in the village hall this morning.
He was going to his Father-in-law's funeral this morning. 
There were a few cars failing to stop on the otherside of the road.
I finished in one piece.
I took off my coat, hat and stick and left it in Sexy Beast. 
Now to set up my cakes.
There were 5 more bakes going into the Baking Competition.
Someone made 8 bakes to sell off.
I went down the road for a coffee.
I had a toasted teacake.
My younger son had caught the bus to join me.
One friend also joined us.
We walked back up to the High Street to the Village Hall.
All the cakes were ready to be judged by the WI.
We all have a drink and piece of cake waiting for the results.
I chatted to some many people, some I hadn't seen for years. We all talked about our lovely friend, Jill that passed away.
Then the results were in.
I wasn't mentioned at Third place, or Second Place.....
"Pigs in Mud" and my name was read out.
I was in shock!
Photo time!
The cakes were being auctioned off and not going for much. So the decision was made to have my cakes back. I was going to cut up the winning cake and give the slices away to friends.
I put the cakes back in Sexy Beast. 
We popped into Morrisons to get the newspaper. 
Pity they didn't have a Minion outfit big enough for me↓
Back home.
Quick lunch.
Chatted with hubby on his lunchbreak.
I cut the Piggie cake up.
Now to deliver some...
I went around to see my late friend's hubby.
I gave out some warm hugs when he got upset.
I gave him some cake, and I said to him:
"This isn't just any cake, this is winning chocolate cake!"
I told him I will come around again soon :)
Drove to work.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat with those big big sunglasses.
I gave one of my friends, a tin of piggie cake.
Turned on both lights.
Then we all had a rabbit in the square.
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Now to start my afternoon shift.
I told all the parents I won the Bake Off competition. I won't be crossing one parent over in 2 weeks time as she is moving over to the otherside of the village :(
I still have last minute brakers.
Loads of traffic to deal with.
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
My friend had given my two boxes of things to sort through. I kept the candles. The red velvet curtains are gong to uni with the younger son next year.
Framed my certificate
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
We watched a good film I bought on Blue-ray
Brilliant film!
We caught up on the news...
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy some more Friday Feeling 🎈

I Know My Limitations

Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead - Benjamin Franklin
Welcome to my Tuesday.
I enjoyed a small lie-in....
Then for tea in bed!
  Lots to do.
First was to update this blog.

Coffee and vitamin C time!
Then to put all the things back on the wall in the hall.
 Then hubby went to do our shopping at Lidl.
Helped with a £5 off voucher from the Mail on the Sunday.
I tidied up the house.

 Lots of vouchers to spend ££££££↑
 Having a look through my new magazine↑
I know my limitations!

I  wouldn't spend £2500 on a bed!!! 
Too much on paint! 

Light Lunch 
Unloaded and loaded up dishwasher.
Rain was forecasted.
All the washing had to be brought in.
Now off to the happy place of work..
There wasn't many people in.
"It should only take you 10 minutes!" I was told.
"I wish, I still have to clean in the factory!" I replied.
When I got back, I had to have a sucky, I was that hot!
 There was some nice things in Dunelm↓
 Walked around the whole store.
I only got one thing I needed↓
 That's the wool storage sorted.
We had a nice chicken dinner.
 Then off to work with some good music↓
