Celebrating With Cake!

 “All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.” – George Harrison.
 Welcome to the day of celebrating my son's 16th Birthday 🎈
Nice cuddle and hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Wishes one son a Happy Birthday and got the other son up for school!
Dressed.
Gave out sloppy wet 💋💋💋
Feeling a bit cold....
It was cloudy and cold.
On went the winter coat with the lumo summer cap.
Now for the fun!
I am glad the rain kept off.
Still testing car driver's brakes!
No lambo again today...
(In the garage probably)
Finished in one piece.
Now off home.
Much needed coffee time.
Birthday Boy got up.
Cake revealed.
He opened his Birthday Cards..
He had some birthday money, so he wanted to go to town.
So off we went.
Parked in Car Park 4.
His bank was closed on Tuesdays!
I got a Costa Coffee to go.
Then we went out of the Kingfisher Shopping Centre to look out by the church to see if my old friend was out there.
He wasn't.
Went past the Library...
Where there was a man  begging for money became very hostile to me as I went past.
"Nice trainers, how much did they cost?"He sneered at me.
"Enough!" I said.
(I found out later on, he was abusive to one of my friends yesterday as well!) 
Went back to the car park and home.
 Henry came out for a little play...
Gave the kitchen a good clean, and mopped the floor.
Light lunch.
Then back out for the afternoon shift.
I spoke to the lady who gave me some free plants last week, about the large amount of plants I got last Wednesday.
"Have you got any spare?" She asked.
"I will drop some round tomorrow afternoon," I replied.
Put my lights on, and now to let the fun start!
One car was trying to speed, but out came the lollystick and it soon stopped.
A few cars the otherside wasn't stopping.
Boing Boing on the top of the car roofs if they ain't careful!
My friend with his dog appeared as soon as I finished.
While we were talking I could feel spots of rain.
I did offer him a brolly to get home with, as he will be entering a wet t-shirt competition when he gets home!
I say goodbye, and off home I go.
Starts to rain on the way home.
Glad I missed it while doing my lollipop job!
Gets home.
Now to write up 2 blog posts.
The England v Germany match is on.....
Hubby comes home at half time.
Our son gets his big presents for his Birthday.
I try and get on with the tea...
First goal goes in for England,
then the second goal in....
Tea is served..
Chicken Stir Fry..
Final result was:
England 2 Germany 0.
Birthday Boy phoned his nan up to thank her for the money she sent him.
As I ran out of Sleep Tea..
(Waiting for a delivery of it this week)
We had bought some nice hot chocolate from Bromsgrove last Saturday.

 Only £3.
Bargain, it tastes so nice!
After having a go on some ghost huntings apps on our phones....
It seem we have loads of 👻 in our house!
Hoping for a nice sunny Hump tomorrow 🐫

One Wheel Too Many!

 Too much of a good thing can be wonderful - Mae West
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with.
Breakfast.
I wakes up the kids for school.
I gets dressed.
Time to share some sloppy wet 💋💋💋 about.
Out I go in the sunshine 
Plus those big big sunglasses come out.
Blue skies greet me.
On goes the Summer Coat.
Tree Shot.
No lambo this morning :(
Some car drivers were refusing to stop...
Going to be that of Monday!
I survived the Monday rush to work!
The sun is beaming it's rays onto me!
Back home.
Time for a ice cold coffee with fruit.
Puts Henry into Sexy Beast. 
Off to clean the House.
While on the way, one motorcyclist overtook me, done a wheelie, and sped over a ton to get to the island before me!
 Further on, 2 lanes became one, cars were still overtaking me and then squeezing into the gap I made between me and the other car in front!
Gets to the house.
Unloads all my bits including Henry.
Now to start cleaning!
The lady of the house was worried that I won't be coming back on Friday after the meeting I am having on Wednesday.
"I better buy myself a new vacuum cleaner," was the reply.
Raiding those ice cubes as I was getting nice and sweaty! 
Finished on time.
I took back all the stuff I had bought to clean the house, left the 2 tins of polish and glass cleaner which wasn't mine.
Back home I go.
Light lunch.
 
Back out for the afternoon session.
It was well warm.
Good job I took my bottle of water with me.
I had woman in a white Merc, chose not to stop when I put my stick out, and she put her foot down when she drove past.
I'm sure we will meet again soon....
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Crumpets and coffee.
Now back out to listen to the new CD I bought.
Gets in.
Loads up the skip.
I gets the 26 toilets cleaned.
I go through 2 bottles of water.
It's so hot in there!
Finished on time.
Back to more big tunes on the way home.
Back home.
Nice tea.
Then it's off to have a cold bath!
Hubby came back later on from seeing his dad.
He has some nice presents off his dad for his Birthday.
Including a nice bottle of Brandy!
I was too tired to stop up any more.
I went out like a light....

Ain't No Doubt, It's Tuesday!

 Coffee isn't my cup of tea - Samuel Goldwyn
Welcome to my Tuesday 🎕
Hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Got my kids up ready for school.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he went off to work.
Gave my kids 💋💋 before they left for school.
I emptied the dishwasher and loaded it back up.
Tidied up the kitchen.
I went outside for some fresh air.
Followed by a much needed cup of coffee.
I needed to get out of this house for half an hour.
So I went to see my parents.
My other brothers hadn't been up to leave any flowers for Mother's Day.
(Not surprised really!)
I tidied up the grave.
I had a quick chat with them.
I went past my late dad's house.
Yellow and blue cars now parked on the drive as well as my brother's limo and his wife's car.
Where is he going to park them all when the house has been sold?
I gets back home.
Time for a little play with Henry.
Now to look in my buttons collection for my son's suit jacket.
Got the buttons sown on.
Time to write yesterday's blog post.
Once published.
Lunchtime.
Then I made a beef stew with dumplings for tea.
In the oven ready to put on.
Tea at 3.
Then I started to have a sort out of things that are under the sideboard in the living room.
Once the Droitwich Lions start up again, I have loads of books from my late dad's house to give them.
More big sorting out tomorrow as well.
Hubby comes home.
I give him a big sloppy 💋
He gives me the newspaper.
