The Vultures Are Circling...

Children learn more from what you are than what you teach - W.E.B Dubois
Welcome to my Hump of the Week๐Ÿช
A nice tea in bed with a warm hug↓
I gave hubby a nice wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before he left the house.
I have things to do this morning...
Out in the fresh air..↓
 It's getting warmer↓
  New sunglasses on↓

I got the newspaper,
Filled up Sexy Beast .
Next stop another visit to the Man's Cave↓
  I said to the Sale's Assistant who served me:
"I went to school with  your mum!".
(she blushed,and went to get my order)
When she came back, 
I said,"I stalk your mum on FB."
She said,"My mum is on holiday."
I replied, "A nice break away from this town does wonders for the soul!" 
My nice items↓
 Quick look at the newspaper before I get out of Sexy Beast. 
 The temperature is going up↗↗
I sorted out the back garden.
All the cabbages had been ate by caterpillers...
The remaining cabbages were put in the composter.
The washing machine went on 3 times.
Making full use of the sunshine.
All the washing went on the line.
Just keeping a eye on the weather.
I picked some blackberries out in the front garden, and picked the rhubarb that was growing in the back garden.
 Hopefully I will have a second batch of rhubarb later↓
 Early lunch↓
 I had some nice post↓
 After I came back from work,
The Rhubarb,Blackberry, Lemon & Ginger pie was put in the oven.
After our main meal,
It wa ready to eat↓
 After I watched Law and Order,
Off to work I go with some great music↓
I had a phone call from my younger brother.
Moaning on the keepsafe being broken by my Dad's carers for the second time. He wanted me and the prodical brother to pay towards another one!
I laughed.
My response was:
"He, and the prodical brother earn loads more money than me, when I earn the same as them , then I will put money in the pot."
He didn't like that reply.
Further on with the conversation,
"My younger brother is having my dad's Rover SD1 car that is in the garage, while prodical brother had now been given my dad's BMW!!!"
Feels like the vultures are circling... 
I was glad to get home!
Prodical brother was stopping over at my dads for the night, so we didn't need to go over!
After I had my sleep tea...
It was nice to enjoy Hump Day!

Needle In A Haystack!

I have had a very frustrating Tuesday,
First, I got the wrong part for my car :(
Then trying to find the right part, 
Was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
I took out my frustration on doing some baking.
First was making a Apple Pie (with help from my hubby)
Then I made Rhubarb Fantasy Loaf!
Once the loaf came out of the oven, came the good news!
Finally found the right part for my car.
Plus she passed her MOT!!
