Trying To Get The Money Tree To Grow Some More!

Start off every day with a smile and get it over with - W.C.Fields 
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
The start of the school holidays.
It kicked off last night.
There is a School Trip next February to Naples for the Year 13s.
Younger son wants to go.
Worked out the cost:
Trip - £550
(Deposit is £100 to be paid in September)
Passport - £70+
Spending money £300+
Then younger son wants me to pay the insurance on a car he can use to learn to drive.
£107 a month!
If he goes on that trip, he isn't go on our annual summer holiday.
(He didn't like that!)
He is starting a Summer Job over the 6 weeks holiday. 
He says he won't contribute to the school trip!
It looks like I will have to get another job so he can go :( 
Anyway that put me in good mood last night!
Time for some Heardle:
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers: 
Breakfast and Brew.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet oneπŸ’‹ as off to work he goes.
Soon after he goes, I goes out too.
First I get the newspaper.
Has a chat with the Sales Assistants in there.
One knew my late dad, and one had her daughter in the same year as my younger son.
Now off for coffee, chat and nibble.
Parks up the car park.
Quick chat with the Postman who was sorting out his van.
Then off to coffee I go.
Had a good chat with my friend.
Said goodbye, and off I go home.
Waters the garden.
Has a really light lunch.
The Bake Off I am putting a cake into has now moved to the Sunday.
There is contest for over 18's
one for the under 18's.
I ordered more things for the cake,
which I forgot to get last week!
I put the tea on.
Rewatched a good show on Netflix which I was good the first time I watched it.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
Looked into today's newspaper.

USA No.1 on this day in 1989:

We nipped out to check Sexy Beast's tyre pressures.

Funny Old Hump!

Welcome to my funny Hump of the Week.
I gave everyone a πŸ’‹ when everyone left.
I had bills to sort out & a school trip to pay for..£££££££'s
Had a strong coffee to melt away the cobwebs..
 While I am recovering from my accident.
I am going down to half pay next month :(
The council is coming to look at the drain, before they start work on replacing the slabs on my drive....
(Busy day for answering emails and the phone)
I had a friend come round for coffee and chat
I had a lovely belated birthday present..:)
 I wished her good luck on hearing if she gets the job she went for earlier when she departed...
(I gave her the remaining pink buns to take home)
While carrying on reading...
Time for a laugh...
I got a email from my local Labour Party...
"I am eligible to take part in the selection for a chance of being the Labour MP for Redditch." 
(Probably be laughed out of the building!"
Did more chop chop....
Dished up Chilli & Lemongrass Chicken with Rice..
Going to laugh off the Hump!

Can't Bend It!

I had to drop off my youngest son at school early,
As he was on a school trip to the Houses Of Parliment.
I had more fun on Job 1.
Cars were failing to stop,
One van actually DROVE AROUND my lollipop stick to avoid stopping.... 
 There is no bend in my Lollipop stick now.
It will take someone to chance their luck,
And end up with a free Lollipop through their windscreen.
At least the sun is coming out to say hello..
 It even followed me to Job 2...
It's feeling like summer again!
Now to enjoy Thursday a little bit more with my Body Shop Order
