One Bang, & It's Gone!

A tough lesson in life that one has to learn is that not everybody wishes you well - Dan Rather
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Hug and brew to start the day.
Followed by a hot shower.
Hubby goes and fetches the newspaper.
I turn on my Lava Lamp and the bulb blows!
Trying to find a matching bulb is going to be an adventure!
Either the watt is too high,or the bulb is too expensive!
I could have got a new Lava lamp on what I paid for the 3 bulbs I got in the end!
At least my bread flour order arrived!
Now to sort out my kitchen unit that will hold this flour↓
I sorted and gave it a good clean out.
I didn't have enough storage jars for where the flour was going in to.
On-line order, hubby will pick them up later.
I whipped up a French style of bread in the breadmaker while I was sorting out the various flours.
Much needed coffee time.
Afterwards, I went outside for some much needed fresh air.
I had a funny shaped parcel delivered to me.
It was the wallpaper boarder I ordered.
Another job to be done over the weekend!
I had more post as well.
The final book I ordered for my next neighbour came.
As well as a book I ordered for one of my sons.
I had a letter about booking an appointment for my Covid jab. Already booked in for mine in a few days...
Quick look in the newspapers.
