Hot, Sweaty Hump!

If you haven't got anything good to say about anyone come sit by me -Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Welcome to my very warm Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice hug with brew.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
Big Big sunglasses goes on.

The sun is nice and bright!
Time to put on the coat.
Tree Pic.
Now to get on with the job!
I had a few cars on the other side of the road, that doesn't understand the word STOP!
Few had to stop or face a cracked windscreen!
It's getting well warm!
Hot under the collar!
Finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper, my neighbour's magazine and paid his TV Licence as well.
Back home I go. 
The coffee machine goes on.
Waters all the plants outside.
Brings in and sorts all the dry washing off the line.
Now for that coffee!
Sorting out bills on the spreadsheet before a light lunchtime.
Nice Homemade Wedding Anniversary Card arrived in the post.
Now for round 2.
Gets my lollipop coat on,
Off to the shop for a much needed ice-lolly.
Puts my lights on,
Picks up my lollipop stick,
And now to enjoy the ice lolly in the shade.
My friend comes for a chat before I start.
(It was too hot to bring his dog out)
Now for Round 2.
Most cars were stopping on my side of the road.
The car drivers on the otherside was a different matter.Most were not even looking!
The clouds were coming over now...
No more Mr Blue Sky!
I finished in one piece.
Now home.
I gave my neighbour his magazine and the change he had left from the TV License I got earlier.
Now to carry on writing two blog entries inbetween sorting out the tea for later.
Gives hubby a wet sloppy 💋 when he came home.
Tea is served.
Salmon Wellington.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
Patsy Cline (born Virginia Patterson Hensley)  was an American singer. She is considered one of the most influential vocalists of the 20th century and was one of the first country music artists to successfully cross over into pop music. Cline had several major hits during her eight-year recording career, including two number-one hits on the Billboard Hot Country and Western Sides chart. 
She would have been 89 years old 🎈
She sadly died aged 30 in 1963.
Now to catch up with 2 documentaries about 9/11.
Sleep tea time.
The rain is back tomorrow ☔

Turning My Fingers From White To Green!

Ducking for apples.Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker
I made sure of no long lie-in today.
The alarm went off at 8am.....
Tea with hugs time↓
Got dressed.
Nipped out to get the newspaper↓
 Tesco Express was closed for stocking the shelves until 10am.
We went further down the road to get the newspapers.
We then sat in the garden to enjoy the sunshine and coffee.
 My plants are flowering really nice this year!
  My good friend couldn't find any self raising flour anywhere.
I filled up a large jar with a little bag of Baking powder.
We left a good 2 meters apart when he came round to collect the flour.
We had a good chin wag.
He left.
We had a important meet over some things for the garden....
Woo hoo the bargains I got...
The plastic shelving unit is now in the back garden...
The plants will be put in the garden later↓
 Off to do this week's shopping from Lidl.
We were only a handful wearing face coverings in there...
I was glad to get out.
Back home to unload the shopping.
Light lunch time↓
Gardening gloves time!
 I made room for the plants under the Cherry and Apple Trees.
 Dunelm store is only open for call and collect.
I have ordered something to fill the space at the back of the garden.
Collection tomorrow.
I found out what the bush is called in my garden↓

Goat Willow
 We had a teabreak at 4pm↓
 Once I had planted everything.
(I have room for more plants.....
I will have to get more compost tomorrow!)
I was in the shower first...
It's going to get hot hot hot up to Wednesday.
Plenty of time to enjoy the garden.
Now for our evening meal...
