Pigs in Mud Cake, Is A Winner!

There are two things in life I like hard and one of them is eggs - Mae West

Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to load the cakes into Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
I dropped off my cakes↓
Now to get the summer coat and summer hat on 
Big big sunglasses.
I walked down to turn on the lights and came back to pick up my big stick.
Now to turn on the other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
The sun shining and it being Friday Feeling.
Double Bubble!
I told one of the parents about the Macmillian Coffee morning in the village hall this morning.
He was going to his Father-in-law's funeral this morning. 
There were a few cars failing to stop on the otherside of the road.
I finished in one piece.
I took off my coat, hat and stick and left it in Sexy Beast. 
Now to set up my cakes.
There were 5 more bakes going into the Baking Competition.
Someone made 8 bakes to sell off.
I went down the road for a coffee.
I had a toasted teacake.
My younger son had caught the bus to join me.
One friend also joined us.
We walked back up to the High Street to the Village Hall.
All the cakes were ready to be judged by the WI.
We all have a drink and piece of cake waiting for the results.
I chatted to some many people, some I hadn't seen for years. We all talked about our lovely friend, Jill that passed away.
Then the results were in.
I wasn't mentioned at Third place, or Second Place.....
"Pigs in Mud" and my name was read out.
I was in shock!
Photo time!
The cakes were being auctioned off and not going for much. So the decision was made to have my cakes back. I was going to cut up the winning cake and give the slices away to friends.
I put the cakes back in Sexy Beast. 
We popped into Morrisons to get the newspaper. 
Pity they didn't have a Minion outfit big enough for me↓
Back home.
Quick lunch.
Chatted with hubby on his lunchbreak.
I cut the Piggie cake up.
Now to deliver some...
I went around to see my late friend's hubby.
I gave out some warm hugs when he got upset.
I gave him some cake, and I said to him:
"This isn't just any cake, this is winning chocolate cake!"
I told him I will come around again soon :)
Drove to work.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat with those big big sunglasses.
I gave one of my friends, a tin of piggie cake.
Turned on both lights.
Then we all had a rabbit in the square.
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Now to start my afternoon shift.
I told all the parents I won the Bake Off competition. I won't be crossing one parent over in 2 weeks time as she is moving over to the otherside of the village :(
I still have last minute brakers.
Loads of traffic to deal with.
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
My friend had given my two boxes of things to sort through. I kept the candles. The red velvet curtains are gong to uni with the younger son next year.
Framed my certificate
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
We watched a good film I bought on Blue-ray
Brilliant film!
We caught up on the news...
Sleep Tea time.
Now to enjoy some more Friday Feeling 🎈

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!
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 🐫
