When I Walk In The Room, I Just Have To ....

 If at first you don't succeed, cheat. - Red Buttons
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Warm hug with Brew.
Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.....
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
I had to park elsewhere as the hall was closed.
It was quite warm, so no need for gloves!
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get ready to roll...🍭
Cars and vans failing to stop!
Some have to do emergancy stops!
Some parents are still chancing it by crossing into moving traffic instead of using me!
At least I survived in one piece!
Nips into Co-op to get some bits....
Saves £6.05 on my shopping bill :)
Next onto Screwfix.
Henry the Hoover!
While in the queue, I here a great song playing, So I start singing along, the man looks around at me....
He must want to join in I thought!
I collects my order.
The £5 off my order helped!
Next to pick up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
While I was waiting, a great song came on, and I started to sing-along...
The two men in front started to look around to see where the singing was coming from.
They looked at me, and I kept on singing along!
"Your happy!" I was told when I paid for my things.
"I am now after doing some singing!" I replied.
Just before I left, I joined in with Belinda Carlisle
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Empties the tumble drier.
Loads up the dish washer and puts it on.
Sorts out the food in the fridge.
Recycling get put in the green bin.
(Our 3 recycling bins are being emptied tomorrow) 
Now for some coffee.
I though writing yesterday's blog post would only take an hour, it took longer!
Right up to lunch, and I still hadn't published it!
Light lunch.
Now for part two....
I was singing along with a great song on the way to work.
Such a Big Tune, it was repeated four times it was good...
The song?
At the end of this blog post...
It was warm enough to wear gloves!
Turned on my lights.
Got chatting to my two friends.
Just before I was due to start, I notice a Argos and Amazon van parking on the double yellow lines over the road where I was due to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Afternoon shift.
Still having problems with car drivers not stopping.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Time for a much needed brew!
I finished and published yesterday's blog post.
Now to get on with tonight's tea.
Opened a cupboard door, my oval dish fell out and broke into 3 bits!
It didn't help cutting open my finger while picking up one piece of it, blood everywhere!
Once it stopped, put a plaster on it, now to carry on with the tea.
It was ready before Hubby came home.
When he did come back from work, he had to warm his up in the microwave!
Four plates were empty!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

It's my late mum's 77th Birthday this Saturday.
I have ordered some balloons 🎈 for her birthday.
My good friend who passed away last May would have been 87 on Sunday.
I made him a Birthday Cake for his 78th Birthday.↓
I should a new CD arrive on Friday...↓
Plenty of singing along with this one!
We caught up with two episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991.
Oh dear, the fast forward button was used a lot.
Great number one in the second episode.
Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff.
Great cover version of the Tommy Roe number 1 hit from 1969↓↓↓
Out of all hits  Tommy Roe had.

I was told.
"Not here, I replied back"
This Business is trying not to give me refund, not answered my emails and just hoping I will go away, however they don't know me well enough!
I need to chill.
What better way to do some sewing with a brew.
Tea at 3 time.
The first 3 draught excluders done.
Then the remaining three done \o/
Hopefully our house won't be so draughty now!
Hubby was visiting his dad with all the shopping he got yesterday and playing snooker afterwards.
While our kids had their tea, a nice tune came on the music channel we were watching.
Then I flicked it over and started singing along with Def...
The room cleared!
That's nice!
I got on with my tea.
Then I caught up with Kenny Everett's series 3.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby won his snooker singles match but lost in the doubles.
His team still won 3-2.
Published my blog post.
Quick read of today's newspaper.

Quick look into today's newspaper.
Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic  is an American singer, musician, record producer, and actor who is known for humorous songs that make light of pop culture and often parody specific songs by contemporary musical acts. He also performs original songs that are style pastiches of the work of other acts, as well as polka medleys of several popular songs, most of which feature his trademark accordion.  
He is 62 years old 🎈
Bernard  Jewry , known professionally as Shane Fenton and later as Alvin Stardust, was an English rock singer and stage actor. Performing first as Shane Fenton in the 1960s, Jewry had a moderately successful career in the pre-Beatles era, hitting the UK top 40 with four singles in 1961–62. However, he became better known for singles released in the 1970s and 1980s as Alvin Stardust, a character he began in the glam rock era, with hits including the UK Singles Chart-topper "Jealous Mind", as well as later hits such as "Pretend" and "I Feel Like Buddy Holly". 
He died on this day in 2014 aged 72.
