Singing In The Rain!

 I want to get as thin as my first husband's promises 
- Texas Guinan
Hi all 👍
Since the last update...
Lots have happened...
I only had to write 3 more weeks of blog posts and then I can publish 4 months of blog! 
We celebrated our 12th Wedding Anniversary last month 💕 
Then I had the bad news next day.
My lovely friend of 30 years had passed away :'(
I hadn't cried so much since my dad passed away three years ago.
I had the afternoon off from my lollipop job to attend her funeral.
It was a lovely service.
It has rained quite a bit since the funeral.
I put it down to me singing a lot more than usual.
Some of the parents said I should hum more...
There was a Macmilliam Coffee Morning in aid of my friend. I made two cakes for the cake competition.
 Pigs in Mud↓↓
 Rainbows and Unicorns↓↓
(6 colours and flavoured)
I put them into the cake competition.
There were 9 entries altogether.
After judging by the WI.
I won First Prize for Pigs in Mud.
I was in shock in winning, I was expecting the wooden spoon.
I dropped some cake around to my late friend's husband, saying:
 "This isn't no ordinary pieces of cake, they are winning pieces of  chocolate cake!" 
The Rainbow cake I am donating to the local Care Home :)
Hopefully by next month,
The blog will be truly up-to-date 👍

Turning Into A Sad Day

Moral code? I have enough trouble with the Highway Code - 
Mark Turner
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Another sunny Hump day↓
Breakfast and Brew
Adding more Stop signs↓
Now out of the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to work I go.
The mini was still parked there!
(Free secure parking)
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
I goes and puts on one set of lights.
I come and pick up my big stick.
I go and turn on my other lights.
Off to my spot I go.
I had to give out two Boings.
I was told my friend of over 30 years, and a fellow Councillor had died this morning.
Just before I finished, a car driver left his car at the parish hall and came over to tell me, he could not see crossing over the kids when he was driving up the road. I looked at him in disbelief. I am dressed in lumo with a big stop sign and he can't see me?
Time for a visit to Spec-Savers!
Off to Morrisons.
I normally use the self-service, but this time I will use a cashier instead. Oh dear.
The woman in front had a full trolley of shopping.
She went over the £100 limit for chip and pin.
Out comes £23 of goods out of her trolley.
She pays, then pays for the extra £23 of goods.
I pay for my goods.
I pick up my newspaper, the Desk where I was queueing was getting longer as the Lotto machine had run out paper to print  the lotto tickets and no one knew where the rolls were kept!
I went over to the self-service tills.
I scanned my voucher for the newspaper and the red light went off!
It was scanned and I was free to leave.
On the way out, I took my bag out of the trolley, a woman took the trolley of me, and before I realised, I had left the receipt in the trolley!
Back to Sexy Beast, to write out the card for my friend's family.
I wrote the card and will drop it off later.
Back home.
Puts the washing machine on.
Puts the grey bin out.
Coffee time.
While keeping the blog updated, I get upset about losing my good friend.
My late friend's daughter phoned me to tell her mum had passed away.I passed my regards on to her and her dad.
I didn't fancy a liquid lunch instead a nice salad instead.
I chatted to hubby.
We got another wedding anniversary card.
When I was on the way out, I found a baby Squirrel.
I left it some nuts.
I needed up some uplifting songs....
I dropped in the card.
I gets to work.
On goes the Summer hat and Summer coat.
Big big sunglasses
The Council had lowered the flag.
I turned on my lights and went back to Sexy Beast for my water bottle.
My friends appeared and were worried about me.
By then I burst into a flood of tears and told the reason why.
Lots of hugs were given out :)
I felt a lot better.
We walked down to the Charity Shop as my friend had some things to hand in.
I bought a rainbow bath bomb.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
Then we wait under the tree.
Some of the parents were very understanding as I was still upset. 
We walk over to the square and stand in the shade. 
When it was time to start, I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start.
Great bus went past.
Cars were leaving a bit late to stop.
 Finished in one piece.
I was chatting to the two clerks about our late friend.
(I got upset again)
Who just appeared?
My late friend's son!
We had a hug and a good yak until ten to 5pm!
He felt better and I did.
Off home I went.
I put the tea in the oven.
Jumped into the shower.
Felt better.
Hubby came home and I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋
Quick tea.
Grabbed my Council things...
Hubby is going over to see his friend who lost his day yesterday morning.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to another Council meeting I go.
I thought it was going to be short meeting.
I watched the sunset through the window.
Meeting finished.
Back home.
My lights look nice :)
Hubby hadn't come back yet.
Looks into today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea time.
I felt emotionally drained.
I couldn't keep my eyes open any more.
Hubby appeared just as I was going to sleep......
