Hi Ho Silver....

Welcome to my hump of the week!🐫🐫
Enjoyed a cup of tea in bed...
 Went back in for a short lie-in....
Once up and trying to get kids up..
It was coffee and vitamin C time..
The walking leggings are on and ready...
 We walked around the lake...
We took the long way round.
Back home for early lunch.
Back out again..
 We got there too late to buy a Duck for the Duck Race.
 Hubby went off to watch which duck finished first.
I had a look around the gardens.
 We got bought some books out of the Book Shop.
We even enjoyed a nice coffee...

While I was there, he got some shopping in.
We were going to attempt to make homemade Chicken Chow Mein...

Give Me An Angel Anytime!

Woo Hoo it's here...
 Chill with tea↓
 Coffee and toast time..
 No sun out today.
Fed the ducks around the lake.
 Met my friend for a chat.
It started to rain, so we all took shelter...
Went back to hers for coffee.
Strocked her doggies..
 Said goodbye.
Dropped the newspaper around at my dads.
 Just got home,
The thunder, rain and hail stones...
 The wind got up and was knocking over my plants...↓↓
 I gave up on the chocolate cake I made yesterday.
Out came the reliable Kenny the Kenwood.
 After using 8 eggs, I done the first butterless sponge.
 I had to nip to Asda to get more eggs, coconut and strawberries...
Made another sponge....
 Angel Cake

 The Chocolate cake is going with hubby to work on Monday, to raise money for Dementia Charity.
Now to put my warm hands to more good use.....

Ready,Willing & Able....

Welcome to my hump of the week!
I decided to give the walk around the running track a miss this week..
Instead I was going for a walk around the lake with my kids...
Nice to have some coffee and toast...
I did some job hunting.
Applied for two jobs.
Lots of copying and pasting my qualifications from one application form to another.... 
Off to see my dad in the Sexy Beast.
  Big big sunglasses back on...
Saw my dad for a bit.
Back home for a light lunch before our walk.
 Dark clouds coming over..
Fingers crossed it's not going to rain..
 Waits around for the people to walk around the lake with. By 1pm no one appeared, so we started to walk as a trio.
 Those dark clouds are coming nearer.
 Smoke coming off my trainers...
 The clouds coming nearer...
 Gets home before the rain starts...
Bake off series 1 we start to watch.
Comes back from Job with some tubes for our Gerbils...
 Enjoyed a ice lolly...↓↓
 There is a break from the rain.
Time for chop chop..
 West Country Chicken:
 Savoy Cabbage,
 Chopped onion
, Garlic,
 Chick peas,
 Worcestershire sauce,
 Chopped chicken 
 Cooked in cider
 My baking hand started itching...
I quickly made:
Mango, cherry, caramel, & pecan tart
 Managed to keep my eyes open to watch the final of Bake Off Series 1.
I will start on cake tomorrow....
Even if I have to chain myself to Kane the Kenwood......
