Getting Ready For A Big Birthday!

 My last credit card bill was so big, before I opened it I actually heard a drum roll - Rita Rudner
Welcome to my Hump of the week 🐫
Hopefully going to finish off the Birthday cake today.
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I go to work.
On goes my summer coat and summer hat.
I go down and turn on my lights.
I pick up the newspaper on the way back up the road.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Let's go to work ...🍭
2 Boings given out.
Got chatting to two friends while waiting to cross children over.
Finished in one piece.
Now off to Dunelm.
Got some nice paint to repaint the bedroon when older son moves out.
Back home.
Tried to find the bunting to put up in the garden.
As normal we tidy up the Dining room and can't find it!
Sorts out the presents instead.
Still got some of the cake to finish.
Liquid lunch time.
Talked to hubby on his lunch break
Cake will be finished when I get back.
Time to leave.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
I turn on my lights.
I ask in the flower shop if they have any bunting for sale?
She has, and she will bring it tomorrow.
Walks down to the Charity shop and has a chat.
Then back up to turn on my lights.
I collect my big stick and has a rabbit in the square.
I say goodbye to my friends.
While I doing my shift, who do you think I had to stop?
Yes, my younger brother in his van. I didn't even look at him when he went past.
Still had to give BOINGs out.
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
Now to get the cake finished.
It's a good job I didn't put any bunting or balloons up tonight as it started to rain at 5pm.
Hubby comes home and has a sloppy wet one 💋
Veggie Burgers for tea↓
Looks into today's newspapers.
Pumps up the balloons ready for tomorrow.
Cake is ready!
Just got to add a few bits to it!
Sleep Tea Time.
All ready for another big birthday tomorrow!🎈🎈

Reached The Big Number 5!

All happiness depends on courage and work - Honore De Balzac
Welcome aboard my small Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
 I enjoyed tea and hugs in bed↓
I gave hubby a big sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
I got up to put all the things away from what I bought on our holiday to Blackpool.
*This blog is now Five years old!!!!*
 Thank you to everyone for reading it!
Once kids were up.
We went out the house...
 Big big sunglasses time!
The temperature is going ↗↗↗↗
 I gets the newspaper↓
 First stop is Aldi
 They had loads of paint I wanted.
(They didn't have none left in the Bromsgrove Aldi yesterday)
The assistant said."There isn't a high demand for that paint here in Redditch, unlike in Bromsgrove!"
Then into Poundstretchers for some bits.
Unload the things in Sexy Beast.
Now to visit my old place of work...
 22 years of delivering the mail from here!
Signs for my parcel.
Now onwards to↓
 Be getting this next month↓
 There was a nice car parked in the car park↓↓
 Enjoyed a coffee↓
 Then back home↓
 The parcel I signed for was the pe pumps for my youngest son = Size 13!
 Light lunch time↓
 Followed by coffee
Read of my magazine↓
 I went to the happy place called work.
I came back to enjoy some:
However due to having a power cut.
I missed the last two episodes of season 16 and the first 2 of season 17!
I made a nice easy Stir Fry↓
 Then off to the final job of the day with some good music↓
   When I got back home.
It was nice to hop off the wobbly work wheel 🎡
Relax with a warm hubby in 🛏

Visiting Old Friends!

“Oh my sweet Saturday,
I have been waiting for you for six long days”
Charmaine J Forde 

At last we reach Saturday!
I missed "The Sounds of the 60s"
We had tea in bed.  
 The sunshine is out at last.
 We visit B&M bargains to get some bits.
I price up the tins of paint.
 I pop over to see some late friends↓

 He wasn't very old when he passed away↓
 I actually visited this grave for the first time, as I keep seeing it when I go pass after visiting my mum's grave↓
 I gave my mum some more flowers↓
 Blue skies \o/
 Looking at more paint↓
 It's getting warm!
 We visit Dunelm↓
 My favourite drink!
(I have been tee-total for nearly 6 years!)
My table is looking nice :)
 The bed is covered in so much,
We ran out of time to get it off...
Our bed for tonight is:
Must not forget the earplugs!
