Just Don't Need This!

No good deed ever goes unpublished - Clare Boothe Lace
Welcome to my Friday 🎈
I had to go downstairs at 4am as it was too hot in our bedroom.
I was back upstairs later to enjoy hugs and brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
I was dropping off son at work early.
While I was waiting, I dug out the much needed Webbs free coffee vouchers!
Once son was ready,
We left the house.
Drops son off.
Now onwards to Webbs.
Someone else parked by the B3 sign.
There is always next time!
Toast, coffee and chat time!
I found a long handled dustpan and brush on the sale stand.
(Looks a lot like my old Dunelm one)
Said goodbye to my friend and back home I went.
I put two loads of washing on the line to dry.
Late lunch.
Then to get two magic bags of food from Morrisons.
Loads of veg for this week to eat!
As soon as I get home to unpack the bags.
Son needed picking up from Sainsburys.
Out I go again....
First a car coming towards me and to swirve back onto his side of the road. Next a pink smart car was sat on my arse on the way to Sainsburys!
Picked up son from Sainsburys, then I had more fun going back home.
A BMW was in the wrong lane and pulled in front of me, then he decided to slow down on the dual carriageway.I overtook him, tried to get back into the inside lane and no car would let me!
I carried onto the next junction, when a red Audi overtakes me on the slip road and then pulls in front me when we get on to the dual carriageway. Once I get off onto the next slip road a car appeared sat on my arse until he turns right at the roundabout, I turn left.
I was so glad to get back home!!!!
Time for tea!
Hubby dropped son off at football.
Then he carried onto Bromsgrove with the younger son to do this week's food shopping.
I tidied up the house and watered the plants.
He picked up son from football.
Then we went out to get some more food.
One was from a M&S Petrol Station and the other was from Waitrose.
On the way out, someone left their glasses on the bench...
Back home to unpack the goodies...
We put it all away.
Quick look at today's newspaper.
We watched the news and turned the internet off.
Younger son didn't take kindly to that and started to threaten me!
His laptop and mobile was took off him.
I had a few stern words for him.
The internet is going to be rationed starting Monday, let's hope the threats stop soon.
Now to enjoy what's left of the Friday Feeling🎈

In Need Of A Good Blast!

 Welcome to my Sunday fun πŸ’‹
I was up at 5.30 as I was far too hot.
I gave the garden a quick water before it got too hot too do so!
I published 9 blog posts.
Sleeping Beauty woke up and we had a nice breakfast downstairs while it was still cool!
Now out to sort out Sexy Beast... 
Checks the tyres...
Fills up for the week with fuel.
On the way to town, one car couldn't wait to go into the car park of the lake, and drove straight in front of me....
He had a good blast of the horn off me...
Nearly causing an accident....!
Now off to town...
Car park 7 was still closed.
Parked in Car Park 4 instead.
Hubby got some new clothes from Primark.
I got some clothes in the sale in New Look.
It was getting well warm in the Shopping Centre.
Time for a quick visit to Mum and Dad.
(And to water the plants on their grave)
Back home.
Light lunch.
Then off to Costa Coffee in Henley to get some more nibbles.
Back home.
See what nibbles we got...
Enjoyed the sunshine in the garden...
(Under the parasol)
I got more food from Waitrose on the food app.
Now to go and get it...
The staff were talking about the Magic bag I had to come and collect.
I told them I was here for the Magic bag.
It wasn't ready, so I went off into WH Smith to have a look in there.
Five minutes later the magic bag arrived with some reduced flowers!
Back home.
Now for tea...
