Leaving The Forties Behind...

The longer the title, the less important the job - George McGovern
Welcome to my sweaty hump of the week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I got one son up for school.
Tomorrow is my hubby's 50th Birthday.
The cake is being made when I get back from the lollipop job.
Speaking of that job, off I pop to it!
Nice and warm πŸ‘™
Big big sunglasses time!
The traffic lights had been took away at the bottom of the road now \o/
Summer coat on.
Tree shot.
The fun and games I had again.
I stopped some parents crossing, as 3 cars on the otherside of the road failed to stop and kept going. I still stopped the white car from yesterday again....
Lambo time \o/
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper and magazine for next door neighbour before I got home.
Time to add some bunting to the garden.
Gave my younger son the balloons to pump up 🎈
Then to repot some plants that arrived while I was out.
Used up two bags of compost!
Then I got Kenny out for a quick play....
To make my hubby's Birthday Cake.
Once it was done in the oven.
I let it cooled down.
Now for me to cool down...
Finished the cake!
Writes out my hubby's card.
Wrapped up my hubby's presents.
Salad time!
Puts the cake in the fridge.
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
It clouded over, so I had no sun beaming down on me. 
The traffic was behaving themselves this afternoon. My friend appeared at the end of my shift. We had a good chat for 20 minutes. 
Back home.
Crumpets time!
&
Lolly time.
Then I'm out for the singasong time!
 Gets in, with my cold bottle of water.
Loads up the skip.
I was well warm when I finished!
Now to drip sweat on the way home while singing along.
Gets back.
Nice tea.
I went for a cold bath again.
Then I added the blown up balloons 🎈 to the bunting...
All ready for the Big Birthday tomorrow🎈

Disco Time!

There are two types of people; those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am," and those who walk into a room and say, "Ah, there you are!". - Frederick Collins
Welcome to my SundayπŸ’‹
After the late night we had.
We had a bit of lie-in.
Nice brew in bed with a warm hug.
Breakfast.
We just lay in bed listening to the radio.
Loud knock on the front door.
It was my next door neighbour.
He was locked out.
Good job his son gave me a spare key!
Now to get dressed!
First a warm coffee to wake the brain.
Then out for a little ride.
We got the newspaper.
Then to test hubby's air pressure of his tyres.
The electrics were playing up on his car....
Spooky time πŸ‘» 
Gets back home.
I use up some shortcrust pastry and a jar of mincemeat. 
Blind baked the pastry.
Let it cool down.
Added the filling and back in the oven it goes.
Late lunchtime.
