Sweating Cobs...

I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done. 
- Steven Wright
Welcome to my Thursday 👍
Nice warm hugs with brew!
Both kids had the day off from school.
I gave some sloppy wet 💋💋💋 out.
Now to leave..
It forecasted rain...
On goes the winter coat....
No lambo today :(
Some cars on the otherside of the road were failing to stop.
Then it starts to rain!
Finishes in one piece!
Back home.
Coffee time!
I searched for a 3 tier plant stand...
Found one!
Going to fetch it later on..
First to get some compost with younger son..
(No more plants!)
On the backseat of Sexy Beast.
I had a Amazon Delivery arrive...↓↓
That's the garden pots arrived!
Plus my crochet blanket arrived too.
Followed by light lunch.
The plant stand is ready to be filled up with compost and plants!
 More flowers to repot tomorrow
Now to go onto the afternoon session of Lollipop.
Oh dear...
I put on my Summer Coat first.
Then it started to rain, so I put on my Winter coat....
It stopped raining and the sun came out!
Too late to change back into my Summer Coat.
More fun...
Lollipop stick was up in the air, one purple car drove under it and looked at me when she went past...
One car on the otherside failed to stop on the otherside, and didn't even notice my lollipop stick!
One BMW driver tried to speed past me,
However he had two choices...
STOP or Windscreen smacked!
He chose to stop.
Then he put his foot down after I got back on the pavement, drove 10 yards up the road with black smoke coming out of the exhaust, turned round, sped past me and parked up in the nearby car park!
I was sweating cobs in the winter coat.
Once I finished, I torn off the winter coat, and found out the temperature was 21c....
Now back home for a very ice cold lolly!
I wrote 3 blog posts.
Tea was put in the oven....
Gave hubby a nice big wet sloppy 💋 when he came home.
Nice fish tea we had.
I am hoping the cake things will be coming tomorrow...
We sat out in the garden...
The garden looking nice...
(Even better once the plants have been potted!)
Now for some sleep tea...
All ready for the Friday Feeling 🎈 tomorrow!

Plants & Pants!

 I'm no angel, but I've spread my wings a bit - Mae West
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Hubby's back is giving him problems...
A little rub helped!
Extra warm hug and brew helped.
Both kids were at home today.
I still opened their bedroom windows.
Gave out sloppy wet 💋💋💋
On goes those big big sunglasses.
On goes the Summer Coat.
Let the fun start....
No sighting of the Lambo today.
Nice view of Rolls Royce with the gold lady on top of the Bonnet instead...
Blue skies and it was getting warm!
Finished in one piece.
Now to take a little ride in Sexy Beast.
I got some things for the Birthday Cake I am making for my youngest son's Birthday next week and some nice reduced items!
Still have to prove my age!
Now for some cold coffee..
The temperature is going up when I got home.
Hubby's new pants arrived and more plants for me was delivered!
Before I put the shopping away.
I cleaned out the fridge, and sorted out all the food in there!
Looking a lot better now!
Puts all the food away.
Feeds the birds.
Waters the plants.
Repots the plants that came earlier.
I received my P45 from my old Cleaner job.
Time for lunch!
I find out my new trainers I bought last year, that I can actually fit into now!
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
Once I turned on my lights, I sat on the bench in the park in the shade. One parent didn't like it and had to sit on the bench further up.
Now for the fun to start!
One learner driver nearly ended up with a cracked windscreen, as my lollypop stick was in the middle of the road. It looked the Driving Instructor slammed on the brakes!
Then another car failed to stop on that side, and my stick nearly went BONG BONG on his car roof when he went past!
One Elderly gentleman had to slam his brakes on as my lollypop stick was in way of going further. I could hear the gums banging when I crossed over the road, and when I returned back to the pavement. I put my hand up to say thank you for stopping....
What a afternoon!
Back home for a suck on a lolly!
My neighbour's son had some spare flowers left over at work.
(Good job I have 3 bags of compost
some pots!)
Tea is served.
Now to repot as many plants as I can before it gets dark!
I ran out of compost and pots!!
I still had plants left and some plants coming in the post tomorrow!
Back out tomorrow to get more pots and compost!
The old sofa was put out for collection.
By 9.45pm I had finished watering the plants I had planted...
I was so tired.....
Gave hubby a back rub to help with the pain......
Let's hope the sunshine carries on tomorrow....

Adding More,More,More!

 I get out of breath playing chess - Billy Connolly
Welcome to my interesting Tuesday 💪
I massaged my hubby's lower back as he is still suffering from yesterday trying to carry the heavy sofa into the house!
Then hug with brew.
Get's one son up for school.
Then I give out my sloppy wet 💋💋💋 before I left.
It was not very warm...
Still had to put on the big big sunglasses 🕶
I had to put on my lightweight jacket under my Summer Coat, as it wasn't that warm!
Tree Shot↑↑↑
 A lorry driver was trying to deliver the huge trailer containing the Breast Screening Unit.
He got it in the car park, then started to unrevel the stairs etc.
Lambo must be staying a home now, as haven't seen it at all for nearly 2 weeks.
Some cars drivers had to slam their brakes on  as I walked across the road....
I finished in one piece.
I looked at what was delivered earlier...
Now to take off the coat and off to get some pots and NO Plants...
I couldn't find anything to wipe the trolleys down with :(
One was walking around with no facemask on.
Lots of lovely plants...
I need the half price pots....
3 bags of compost.
Back home to unload Sexy Beast.
I was careful with my back lifting out the compost. 
Washing machine went back on twice.
Hung all the washing out on the lines.
Loaded up the dishwasher and put it on.
Then I made a chicken casserole for tonight's tea.
All put in the red casserole pot and in the oven.
Then the temperatures went down, there was cloud cover and the sun disappeared!
It was so cold,
the soup had to come out for lunch!
Now out for the afternoon shift.
Suddenly there was blue sky and it was feeling warm!
As I go and put on my lights.
I chat with the woman who gave me some free plants on Friday. She was doing yet more gardening. She showed me her lovely back garden full of plants, and gave me more plants for my garden.
I thanked her so much and put the plants in Sexy Beast. 
I had a good afternoon, most of the cars stopped, some didn't want to , but had no choice.
Stop or windscreen...
Back home to do some more gardening.
Now to use the pots and compost I bought earlier...
Hubby came back for a nice hug.
Time to serve up the grub!
The old sofa is being collected by the Council on Thursday.
We had a few hours of sorting out the bills, as we have to look for a new provider of our gas and electric,as we changed last year, and the supplier went bump next day, and it's took this long to get the final bill!
Lovely full moon tonight!
It was getting cold as well....
The bedroom window was shut and we jumped under the 16 tog duvet to keep warm.....
Let's hope Hump day tomorrow will be warmer!
