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No good deed ever goes unpublished - Clare Boothe Lace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🎈

No Connection To The .....

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our sunshine - Henry Ward Beecher
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Had the normal nudge for tea...
Gave hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left for work.
Time to open the windows, and wake the kids up!
Once they were dressed and had breakfast.
Quick coffee and nibbles↓
 Back on the walking wheel...↓
 The blossom is out on the Pear Tree.
Nice easy walk to fetch the newspaper..
 Will have to go another way tomorrow,
Didn't crack the mile!
