On Top Tonight!

Three jobs Tuesday is nearly finished.
I was still trying to finish my son's Birthday cake after 10pm last night.
Jack was well pleased with the finished effort.
It has been so hot today.
Tonight we will be sleeping on top of the 16 tog duvet and not under it.
I was dressed head to toe in white,
and slapped all over with factor 50 sun cream.
No red lobster time for me!

Kinky Boots

Today I have been chilling at home, I found time to do  2 jobs.
I have been relaxing, taking deep breathes of air, and chilling.
I sat in my front garden, and started singing to my plants.
Singing along (out of tune) to some classics...
I did hear the sad news of the death of Patrick Macnee
I remember him in the James Bond film "A View To A Kill".
He had a run in with May Day in the car wash!
He did sing on a song with Honor Blackman called
"Kinky Boots".

You're Going The Wrong Way!

It's Friday,woo hoo!
Last day of being on the work wheel...
The Pink Princess is in the garage having work done.
So my mode of transport are my legs for the time being.
Walked back home from my Lolly Pop Job.
One mum (who I cross over,) shouts,
"You're going the wrong way, school is that way!".
Fingers crossed my car will be ready BEFORE I do my second stint of the Lolly Pop job.
So while I wait for the call...
Henry is calling to be played with....

Charging Of The Mouth Battery...

Welcome to Hump of the week again.
Crossing the weeks off until the schools break up.
Went and saw a good friend with the Birthday card I finally finished this morning!
My stab vest has been taking a battering this week.
I have tried to grow a face that fits,
I have grown two, a third is growing on my arse.
And still it doesn't fit!
Never mind!
At least my battery for my mouth has nicely charged up
for the whole of dinnertime ;P

It's My Life

It was 3 job Tuesday today.
Troubles,trouble, and more troubles...
My stab vest has been too tight to smile.
I still has got this serious back stabbing problem 
How am I going to cope for 6 weeks?
If people had to read my blog to find out why I was off ill!
Is my life so important to them??
But then again, have they have got nothing going on in their small world??
Perhaps they have nothing more to do, then stir their cauldron!!

Amazing What Coffee & Chat Can Lead To....

Today is the 5th Anniversary of my first meeting with my future hubby.
We met at Bromsgrove Morrisons, for coffee and chat.
We got on like a house on fire.
My happiness returned.
Then I had to tell my first husband it was over between us.
Divorced in July 2011, and remarried in September 2011.
Being married for the second time is like wearing a trusty old shoe!!

Classic World War 2 Jeep Moment!

So after a busy day of being out and about.
We went to Waitrose for my free coffee and free magazine.
I noticed something in the car park.
I have been lucky of late getting some great photos of some classic cars!
Long it may continue.....
 
 
 


 





That Was A Nice Thought :)

After such a bad week I have had (work wise).
Out of the darkness,there came light!
That light was in form of a box of chocolates!
A very grateful parent gave them to me,
To say thank you for doing a great job as a Lolly Pop Lady!
It's not often I get praised up.
So I gave the parent a big hug and a big Thank You
Now to open the box.....munch munch..!

Enjoying Getting Out Of The House!

I feel a bit better today.
All that sleep, rest , water, and dry toast has done me the power of good!
The sun was shining..
I fancied a trip out for a coffee.(To get out of the house!)
So I visited the And Why Not Inn
It had a open fire, wooden beams, huge garden and patio.
I chose to drink my coffee inside (as I forgot my huge sunglasses ;))
It was nice to read the paper,drink a cup of coffee, and chill!
Now to enjoy some Pink Sunshine!
