Trying To Escape It!

"Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo" - HG Wells.
Welcome to my weekend🎈
Snoregate again...
Up, up, I rose and went downstairs↓
 I took out my earplugs, and I could still hear the loud snores coming from our bedroom.
I listened to the "Sounds of the 60s" while catching up with yesterday's blog.
Sleeping Beauty arises and comes downstairs.
He orders an Anti-Snore pillow from Argos.
I asked him "If he bought two?"
"Why two?"He asked.
"One to sleep on, and the other one on top of your face!"
He went to make breakfast after that crack!
More lovely material arrived↓
 First coffee of the day↓
Drops off younger son to help with the uniform bank.
Collects my neighbour's shopping list.
Off to drop of other son to do his boxing lesson↓
 Drops him off.
Nice new face mask for me to wear today↓
 Hubby goes off to fetch his snore pillow↓
 While hubby was filling his car up.
I noticed a ex-worker who I call the Anti-Depressant! Washing his car.
To finish our friendship once and for all, he said the following to me while I was doing my first Lollipop job:
"They don't need you here, they have traffic lights.It should be a voluntary position."
After that, I just ignored him with a passion↓
  Next stop was to do my neighbour's shopping at Lidl↓
Once we had finished, we saw Anti-Depressant go past in his car again.
Picks son up from boxing.
Drops shopping around to my neighbour.
Quick lunch.
Let's see how hot it is in the USA↓

 Back out to pick up younger son↓
 Car Park 4 was still closed.
Car Park 7 was losing some of its parking spaces due to repainting↓

 Made sure we got a ticket on display↑
 I chatted to a friend outside the church.
He had a lovely brown suntan from sitting in the sun. He was telling me about some of the shops that are moving about in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.
The Uniform Bank has finished early.
Youngest son got himself some clothes for the new school year.
On the way out I got talking to a friend of my arsehole brother.
He blames the girlfriend for the money grabbing situation.I just said she doesn't help the situation that he is a big arsehole trying to screw me over!
Gets home.
Watches the afternoon session of the World Championship snooker.
Then off to do our shopping↓
They knocked down the last box of sewing threads....↓
 In the trolley they go.
Gets back to unload the shopping.
Has a steak tea.
(In a hurry to eat, forgot to take picture!)
 Now to finally look into today's newspaper↓

How Do You Do It?

Writing is like sex.First you do it for love,then you do it for your friends,and then you do it for money - Virginia Woolf
Welcome to my Tuesday...
Looks like I will be needing my rain mac today...
 I enjoyed my warm hug and tea in bed.
Before everyone left the house, they all enjoyed sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Once I loaded up the dishwasher,
It was coffee and vitamin C time!
 Followed by a early lunch↓
 With the rain mac on,
Time to enjoy the rain!
 Going a different way to work,
It had its dangers.
Two blind bends...
Good job the car horn was invented!
I finally arrived in one piece.
A quick glance at the newspaper↓
 It is Gerry Marsden's 77th Birthday 🎈 today.
(I have put one of my favourite videos of his at the end of this blog post.Enjoy!)
 Found another item in the car park↓
 While singing along with Gerry,
I looked across the fields of fun↓
  The rain eased my red face when I got back to my car.
I had to deal with the rain, blind bends and drivers doing only 35mph on the way home.
At least I had some music to sing along with!
I'm home!
 I enjoy a much needed coffee and nibble↓
 Then I go off to the Happy Place Of Work.
I realised it is my 5th Anniversary of working there....\o/
 The sun came out when I got back home...
 I did a early tea↓
 I had to go to the Town Hall to join a Focus Group on an updated Tenant's Handbook
 Pity I couldn't take them home↓
 I took my non-caffine fruit flavoured tea bags to drink along with a bit of cake!
 When I left the meeting,
I bumped into some Councillors I knew.
I had a quick catch up on things.
Finally got back home...
Now to work with some excellent music to sing along with↓
When I got back,
We caught up with Bake Off.
I hope I don't have a wet Hump tomorrow πŸͺ
