Turning Into A Sad Day

Moral code? I have enough trouble with the Highway Code - 
Mark Turner
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Another sunny Hump day↓
Breakfast and Brew
Adding more Stop signs↓
Dressed.
Now out of the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Off to work I go.
The mini was still parked there!
(Free secure parking)
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
&
Big big sunglasses.
I goes and puts on one set of lights.
I come and pick up my big stick.
I go and turn on my other lights.
Off to my spot I go.
I had to give out two Boings.
I was told my friend of over 30 years, and a fellow Councillor had died this morning.
Just before I finished, a car driver left his car at the parish hall and came over to tell me, he could not see crossing over the kids when he was driving up the road. I looked at him in disbelief. I am dressed in lumo with a big stop sign and he can't see me?
Time for a visit to Spec-Savers!
Off to Morrisons.
I normally use the self-service, but this time I will use a cashier instead. Oh dear.
The woman in front had a full trolley of shopping.
She went over the £100 limit for chip and pin.
Out comes £23 of goods out of her trolley.
She pays, then pays for the extra £23 of goods.
I pay for my goods.
I pick up my newspaper, the Desk where I was queueing was getting longer as the Lotto machine had run out paper to print  the lotto tickets and no one knew where the rolls were kept!
I went over to the self-service tills.
I scanned my voucher for the newspaper and the red light went off!
FFS!
It was scanned and I was free to leave.
On the way out, I took my bag out of the trolley, a woman took the trolley of me, and before I realised, I had left the receipt in the trolley!
FFS!
Back to Sexy Beast, to write out the card for my friend's family.
I wrote the card and will drop it off later.
Back home.
Puts the washing machine on.
Puts the grey bin out.
Coffee time.
While keeping the blog updated, I get upset about losing my good friend.
My late friend's daughter phoned me to tell her mum had passed away.I passed my regards on to her and her dad.
I didn't fancy a liquid lunch instead a nice salad instead.
I chatted to hubby.
We got another wedding anniversary card.
When I was on the way out, I found a baby Squirrel.
I left it some nuts.
I needed up some uplifting songs....
I dropped in the card.
I gets to work.
On goes the Summer hat and Summer coat.
&
Big big sunglasses
The Council had lowered the flag.
I turned on my lights and went back to Sexy Beast for my water bottle.
My friends appeared and were worried about me.
By then I burst into a flood of tears and told the reason why.
Lots of hugs were given out :)
I felt a lot better.
We walked down to the Charity Shop as my friend had some things to hand in.
I bought a rainbow bath bomb.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
Then we wait under the tree.
Some of the parents were very understanding as I was still upset. 
We walk over to the square and stand in the shade. 
When it was time to start, I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start.
Great bus went past.
Cars were leaving a bit late to stop.
 Finished in one piece.
I was chatting to the two clerks about our late friend.
(I got upset again)
Who just appeared?
My late friend's son!
We had a hug and a good yak until ten to 5pm!
He felt better and I did.
Off home I went.
I put the tea in the oven.
Jumped into the shower.
Felt better.
Hubby came home and I gave him a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Quick tea.
Grabbed my Council things...
Hubby is going over to see his friend who lost his day yesterday morning.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Off to another Council meeting I go.
I thought it was going to be short meeting.
I watched the sunset through the window.
Meeting finished.
Back home.
My lights look nice :)
Hubby hadn't come back yet.
Looks into today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea time.
I felt emotionally drained.
I couldn't keep my eyes open any more.
Hubby appeared just as I was going to sleep......

Intimacy is being seen and known as the person you truly are 
- Amy Bloom
Welcome to my Thursday🎈
No chance of a lie-in...
I enjoyed tea and hug in bed↓
 I gave hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹
He left the house of to work.
Now for me to leave the house!
 I played one of the CDs I bought yesterday.
(It didn't help it only have one cd in it instead of 2!)
 Just had to sing along↓
 
 It's getting warmer↑
I gets to the Hospital in no time.
The barrier is up so I don't have to pay to get out of the car park :) :)
I had a little look in the newspaper↓

Out under the barrier...
(Saved myself £2.50!)
More singing to do...
Back home↓
 I got in contact with Vicar who is doing my dad's funeral.
(I gave him directions)
He arrived half an hour later.
He sat down on my sofa and looked about my Living Room..
"Haven't you got a lot of stuff!" He said.
I laughed and gave him his coffee.
I told  him we have met before twice.
I was at the Mother's Day Service at Tardebigge Church in 2014.
He was mentioning a Mother's poem,
I started to cry uncontrollably and got up and left the packed church.
(It was under 12 months since my mum passed away)
That was the talking of the school when I appeared at work, next day.
Some people doesn't  doesn't understand losing a parent can be upsetting.
The next time I saw the vicar he was doing my younger brother's wedding, in August 2014.
I told him I won't be at my dad's funeral,
(Because of my Arsehole brother)
   I don't have enough Arsehole Spray
(They only come in packs of 4 not 6!)
He laughed at that one.
I told him all about my dad.
He left after an hour.
I forgot to tell him the funny story about me my dad.
Which I texted him later about the story about the Wobbly Step ladder↓
"Many year ago...
My parents invited us to a barbacue on a Sunny Summer Sunday.
The drinks flowed and the food was ate.
After 3 pints of beer, my dad decided to trim the hedge.
He balanced his fourth pint on top of the step ladder. He started to mount the step ladder with his hedge trimmer. He was in the course of trimming the hedge, the step ladder wobbed, and he nearly cut of his own head!
As I was the only sober one in the garden. I took him down to the local A&E to get his glued back together!" 
He texted me back, saying "He was glad to meet me and the story was funny about my dad.
 I had a light lunch↓
Out in the rain.
First stop was Bromsgrove Morrisons to get some eggs↓
Next stop,
Homebase.
The river was getting high↗↗↗

I go round to see a good friend for a catchup with coffee.
She gave me a lovely card↓
I said goodbye, and thanked her for having us :)
Back home.
I got changed,
Off to The Happy Place of Work. 
Some good music went on
I was singing along with a great song, even reaching some high notes....when I got walked on in mid high notes!
