Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Hubby is still unwell..he is off to the doctors later...
I enjoyed a cup of tea and hug to start the day↓
 I blew hubby a πŸ’‹
& gave our kids sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Out of the house I go↓
 It's a bit windy....
 It might be new year,
But I still have the same problems..
One car driver stopped for me,
Then changed her mind, and carried on driving!
Oh dear!
I finished in one piece.

Now to enjoy a cup of tea with a warm hug↓

Time to paint the door arches upstairs↗↗↗
 I just finished in time for lunch↓
Second coat will go on tomorrow.
I got all the pots and pans ready for making of the evening.
I had my sleep tea delivery
I have a phone call from younger brother:
"Dad has given the BMW to Prodigal brother for the tiling of the upstairs bathroom!" 
"Oh well, I have nothing,and will get nothing!" I said.
 Goes off to work↓
 I miss out again on a↓
 I ask one of the workers for a lick of his ice cream..
He starts to choke on his ice cream.
I say to him,"Careful I can do the kiss of life on you!" 
Later on another worker said:
"I would take your away on an island, just me and you......"
I laughed and replied:
 "That isn't enough viagra in the world, plus I would kill you off in 2 weeks!"
I gets home to find my own ice-cream.
I finally find one in the bottom of the freezer↓
 I made the evening meal.
Shepherd's Pie↓
 While my hubby went to do my dad's shopping, I went off to work with some good music↓
 My late mum's favourite song came on↓
  She used to sing this at Karaoke, when we went. 
It was played at her funeral.
 I gets back.
Hubby said my dad was praising up the Prodical son all the time.
Next time, he does this, I told hubby to put some ear plugs in.
We caught up with another Louis programme.
"Off-Off Broadway"
Louis meets the hordes of out-of-work actors in New York as they try to land a part – and even goes on an audition himself, for a job on a Norwegian cruise ship, in front of Craig Revel Horwood 
Good job the washing was brought in,
As the rain started....
The Friday Feeling 🎈 will soon be here...

 Lots of Friday Feeling to enjoy..
Cup of tea to start the day!
Now to add to the day...
Sits outside while kids have breakfast.
 They are ready to go....
 Have to add the big big sunglasses...
 and some good music to listen to..
While we were on the way to drop off my dad's perscription at the Doctors.
At woman (wearing bigger sunglasses than me) pulled out of the Southcrest Hotel, right in front of me. Good job I was driving under 30 m.p.h and got good brakes....She just looked at me, as if it was my fault!!!
Second day running someone has tried to hit my Sexy Beast.
On the way to the first garden centre yesterday, a white BMW overtook a cyclist, veared onto my side of the road, and I had to quickly stear out of the way! 
After dropping it off, now onto to B&M bargains.
 I got a lot of reduced bargains.
Some of the staff were eyeing up my t-shirt and some customers were also eyeing up my reduced stuff!
Popped into see my dad.
(The Prodical son has now left the building) 
The Pricky plants are now potted!
Watched a bit more of Bake Off..
