When It Goes Wrong, It Does!

Say you're sorry. No one says you have to mean it - Jeff Green
Welcome to my Saturday Fun 🌹
A lovely hug is what was ordered!
Brew with Breakfast.
Now to get dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Out we go...
First stop was....
Sainsburys↓
We got a self-service scanner.
However the price of the binders was £2.50 on the scanner, funny it was £1.50 on the shelf.
One man Sale Assistant in a suit says, it will correct itself at the till....
Yeah right!
Goes to the till, and we were charged £2.50!
Then the voucher for the i got stuck in the coupon slot.
On goes the red light...
That was sorted.
After paying for the things,
I went to the customer service desk,
And got a £3 refund!
Now off to see my mum and dad.
I gave them the some new flowers.
Had a catch up with what had been happening for the past week!
Then off for a coffee....
It was nice to sit outside...
Then the wind got up and it was freezing cold...
Back inside we go...
Afterwards we go and look around the reduced plant stand.
We goes inside to pay for them, when suddenly on the sound system comes:
We walked back outside until it finished.
The Sales Assistant on the till says:
"Music effects people in different ways"
Back home with the flowers!
As we got some nice wind...
Out comes the lollipop coats to dry on the line.
The man on the fence was being kept busy in the wind...

Bringing New Flowers!

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it
 - Terry Pratchett
Welcome to my Sunday 🌷🌹
We had a bit of lie-in.
Still had hugs and kisses
With brew and breakfast.
I put on the thermal vest.
&
Rain mac.
Out for a ride in Sexy Beast.
Pump up the tyres.
Fill up with fuel.
Then back home we go.
The coffee machine goes on.
So does the washing machine...
Once two loads of washing was done.
On goes the tumble drier.
The meantime I made the red velvet cake for tomorrow.
The oven was turned down low,
While we went out in the rain again.
Checked hubby's tyre pressures.
Filled up with fuel.
Then nipped into the Co-op for some milk.
Roses anyone?
As normal the red light kept going off.
It doesn't like reduced food!
Then off to give my mum and dad's grave a tidy up and put new flowers on.
Then back home to unpack the shopping.
Got the cake out to cool down.
In the meanwhile, finished off the soup.
Then I wrote 2 blog posts.
We had Gammon for tea.
Once finishing my blog posts.
I had to finish the cake as well.

Surprised By Flowers!

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy -
Issac Newton 
Welcome to my Thursday 🌺🌼🌹🌸
Brew with Breakfast.
The thermal vest went on once more.
Not so many layers.
(Rumour has it,it's going to be quite warm this afternoon!)
I didn't have to cover up Sexy Beast either! 
Now out of the door.
I gives hubby a wet sloppy one before I leave.
I still wore 2 hats and my big big gloves!
I put on my lights.
Let's get ready to roll 🍭
The first ten minutes was bedlam!
Cars doing the limbo dance under my stick.
BOING,BOING, BOING my stick went.
The cars are the otherside wasn't either stopping either, just putting their hand up when they went past me!
Suddenly a woman wearing a orange coat wanted to cross the road.
She handed me some nice flowers and a card and said:
"You do such a good job keeping the children safe, here are some flowers and a card from all of us at the school!"
I was quite gobsmacked
"Good job? Do I!" I replied.
"Yes you do, and we so appreciate it!"
"Must be doing something right, I am still here!"
I thanked her, and crossed her back over the road.
All the parents I crossed over, agreed with the Head Teacher, that I do a good job.
I was just amazed, as I am not used to compliments but just car drivers trying to kill me!
Finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Now to find the flower vase....
I sent the school the above photo, and thanked them for making my day!
Coffee time!
Now to make the next batch of soup.
Put on the soup maker.
"ERROR" kept coming on.
Emptied more mixture out of it.
3 more times it kept saying "ERROR"
I gave the lid a good clean and put it back on.
It worked that time.
I started yesterday's blog post.
I ended up having a jug full of soup and 2 bowls of soup as well.
One bowl went into the microwave to heat up for lunch.
I had a letter from my Prison Pen Pal from the USA.
Younger son has nearly completed his 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle.
Now out for the second time.
One winter hat, no gloves, and the big big sunglasses came out.
I put on my lights.
It's going to be some fun with low lying sun!
Now it's rabbit time with my two friends.
I said goodbye to them.
Now for more fun to have 🍭
Lots of BOINGs were given out!
Lots of parents asked "Who was the parent that nearly took me out last Monday?"
I pointed to the Land Rover that just went past me at the exact point they asked me.
Nearly finished, crossing the last parent and child over, when we had to stop in the middle of the road,as a car on the otherside just kept driving....!
 Hometime for me!
Now for that cup of brew!
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
&
Getting tonight's tea sorted out.
Linguine was put a saucepan of hot water.
Fried up some mushrooms, peppers, garlic, and spinach.
Once the Linguine was done, dried off the water, added some cream cheese, and everything I fried up.
Mixed it altogether.
Served it up.
(Ate it too quickly to take a photo,
It was so nice!)
Hubby arrived with more flowers!
He had his tea.
I looked into today's newspaper.
