Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way!

There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn - Albert Camus
Welcome to my Hump of the Week πŸͺ
Trying to rest the knee as much as I can!
Brew with a warm hug.
Hubby got my newspaper before work.
I gave him a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before left for work.
One son also a had wet one before he left for school too.
Coffee time
Look in the newspaper↓
Robert Vaughn was an American actor noted for his stage, film and television work. His television roles include suave spy Napoleon Solo in the 1960s series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.; wealthy detective Harry Rule in the 1970s series The Protectors; Morgan Wendell in the 1978–1979 mini series Centennial; formidable General Hunt Stockwell in the fifth season of the 1980s series The A-Team; and grifter and card sharp Albert Stroller in the British television drama series Hustle (2004–2012), for all but one of its 48 episodes. He also appeared in the British soap opera Coronation Street as Milton Fanshaw, a love interest for Sylvia Goodwin between January and February 2012.
In film, he portrayed quiet, skittish gunman Lee in The Magnificent Seven, Major Paul Krueger in The Bridge at Remagen, the voice of Proteus IV, the computer villain of Demon Seed, Walter Chalmers in Bullitt, Ross Webster in Superman III, General Woodbridge in The Delta Force, and war veteran Chester A. Gwynn in The Young Philadelphians, which earned him a 1959 Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He died on this day in 2016 aged 83.
I got the pastry rolled out and added to the dish for tonight's meal.
My younger brother turned up with the forms I had to sign.
One happy soul as normal!
Stirring the poop with everyone as normal.
He hasn't inherited the tact button in his mouth from our dad.
"If you can't say nothing nice, don't say it at all!" I repeated that phase to him.
The Solicitor wanted to know where my late mum's will was.
They did joint wills, however my dad didn't want to pay for the storage of it. So Prodical son made him write out another one.
Pity that other will can't be found as I know for a fact, the Prodical son isn't in that one!
God knows how long it will sort out to close this final bank account of my dad's....
After January 2021 no doubt!
I blind baked the pastry.
 Once it had cooled down, I mixed the double cream and eggs with a dash of basil.
Added the peppers, garlic, goat's cheese and spring onions in the tart base.
Added the everything else and left it in the oven for later.
Now to blog!
I caught up with more Hell's Kitchen ↓
More parcels came to keep the postman happy↓
Finished writing yesterday's blog post \o/
Just in time for Tea at 3. 
Put the oven on.
It is getting dark about 3.15pm now.
Time to draw the curtains.
Caught up on reading the week's newspapers.
(All ready to go in the recycle bin, as they are being emptied tomorrow)
Read a few more Sewing books...
I gave hubby a wet one when he came home πŸ’‹ 
Now to serve up the tart....
Spring Onion, Peppers,Goat's Cheese Tart.
 We ate one of the apple pies I made during August. Another 37 to go!
Now for more:
With some Sleep Tea.
We will be able to catch up with episode 6 of series 19 of Hell's Kitchen tomorrow↓
Hope the sun comes back today,
As it's been a bit of a grey Hump Day πŸͺ

So Many Sound Effects To Choose From!

Welcome to my Hump of the Week!
It is turning out to be sunny Hump! 
I moved Sexy Beast as the council are doing repairs to next door, and parking is a pig at most times around here....
 They are supposed to repairing the drive tomorrow, I was told last week....
 The council workers had arrived.

 Time for coffee!
To ease my baking hand...
 Pesto, Spinach, Mushroom Tart.
I was going to walk to fetch the Sexy Beast, but someone was blocking the drive.
 (They could have parked back on the drive)
I don't bite......much ;)
I went on to my Powerpoint presentation for a up and coming job interview next week.
I had so much fun adding the sound effects and a well known 60's song added to the title.
(Even my kids laughed when they heard it!)
It has to last 10 minutes, after I start talking,
add another 0 to it... 
The sun was still shining when I collected the Sexy Beast..
 The tart was ready...
 I started to look around for car insurance quotes for the Sexy Beast...
I think I better trade him in for a horse and cart.....

Putting The Blanket On The Ground...

Hey ho back on the wobbly work wheel.
It was rather quiet on the traffic front for 
Job 1
(Tomorrow it will be Tuesday madness for loads of traffic now I have said it!)
I got some replies back after sending an application forms back for more jobs for me to do.
(I am going for 6 jobs )
I had the itchy baking hand back.
A bit shortcrust pastry 
2 jars of Mincemeat.
 Had a lovely view of the Moon and Jupiter last night....
I might have to put a blanket on the ground and see what's going to happen in the sky tonight πŸŒπŸ‘€??

Spent another day with my brother, & family in Stroud.
We all ate the Leek & Goat cheese Tart I made.
Took our kids to the park in the Autumn sun.
We had to say goodbye and we will see each other next month.
Back onto the M5
Back to work after 2 lovely days off!
