Looking On The Bright Side......

 A weed is a plant that is not only in the wrong place but intends to stay.
-Sara Stein
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Warm hug and brew.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before he went to work.
I got dressed.
Quick coffee before I go out.
Now out in Sexy Beast.
I first gets the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
Then off to Homebase, for bits!
The trolley was well heavy when I came out.
Evenly spread the bits in Sexy Beast.
Now off home to unload it all! 
The sack truck came in useful...
Once unloaded.
Now to get some gardening done.
Used up 3 bags of bark.
Emptied one bag of white small stones on the garden.
I need to get some boarder fences...
Back to the DIY store after a much needed lunch.
My Amazon order arrived \o/
Another gnome to add to the garden and butterflies.
Added them to the garden.
Now back out to get more stuff for the garden.
I only went to get a few things...
Home to unload it all.
Quick tea at 3
Back out in the garden to plant some plants.
Used half a bag of compost, now to use the final bag. Hoping I don't run out of compost for this little project!
Now to water all the plants....
Very pleased with what I have done in the garden today!
(It will need another coat of paint)
Now to put the tea on.
Hubby had a sloppy wet 😘 when he returned home.
Dish up the grub time!
Stuffed mushroom, spinach and garlic dumplings from Poland. With red wine pasta sauce, mushrooms and onions.
Well tasty!

I Wonder Why

Welcome to the Friday Feeling...
The sun was out again \o/
Happy Birthday to my friend.
I hope she enjoyed her card...

 Out for a little ride in the Sexy Beast.
 Just starting singing "I Wonder Why" while walking through the Kingfisher Centre. I told Jack that's where his middle name comes from. "Is this Curtis Stigers then?" He grumbled 🙄 I nodded, and carry on singing it to him
After hitting Wilkinsons & Poundland we chill in the Library.
 Gets back to the car to see the temperature going up ↗↗↗↗
Up to 25c.....
Pops into see my dad.
Nothing can be said against the Prodical Son who is visiting him until Wednesday.
Back home to pot a payday treat.
However run out of compost!!
Off to B&Q

All potted :)
Went to do Job 3
Came back with a sweaty face..🍅
 Are we going to expect some rain??
We cleaned out the remaining gerbils.
