The bits didn't arrive for cake in time..:(

Patter Cake, Patter Cake....

Today I have had to put up with sunshine and showers.
Not good as I work outside....
Time to play with some fondant icing..
I needed more green...
Out came the green food colouring, and blue gloves..
I thought it will only take a few hours to cover the cake,
Add Happy 11th Birthday on it, and I will be finished by 5pm...
I finally put my head on the pillow about 11.30pm.
Just really hoping the rest of the bits for the cake comes tomorrow.....

A Right Carry On!

I'm back on the Wobbly Work Wheel...
Larry is waiting for his bits to be put on...
I meanwhile had a little play with Kenny the Kenwood.
I have a Carry On Birthday cake to make for Wednesday.
I have bought some Carry On items for the cake...
You should know by now. I don't do small.
The bigger, the better!
 Somewhere amongst the cake, there will be some mole hills...

Lifting Of The Leg #2

I enjoyed this Sunday Morning by:
  1. Playing with the sausage of Love <3
  2. Drinking tea in bed
We went out for a Carvery with hubby and my dad
It didn't help, when we went back to Hubby's car.
The car next to his car was parked so close,
Hubby couldn't get into his side.
So he had climb over the passenger seat and gear stick...
Lift, double somersault, and kick of the foot...
 That's better....
Our kids are back from Scout camp..
All ready for tomorrow's go on the wobbly work wheel
Without the use of Larry :(

Adults Only Road Trip....

Welcome to our no kids weekend.
I played with the love sausage....
Then off on our little road trip..
We went through Chipping Campden,
Then we looked around Stow On The Wold
I made a woman laugh at a Church Fete,
When I commented on this:
  "Oh, that's where I have left it!"
Then we visited Chastleton House
Wolf Hall was filmed there.
The long table appeared in the mini-series and hasn't left the room since 1625
Now to enjoy this adult only weekend further!

Time To Make Full Use Of The Green Armchair!!

Welcome to another Hump Of The Week..
My  younger son commented on the school run in the rain...
"It had better not rain next Wednesday, as it's my Birthday!"
I hope not either, as it looked like I was going to get wet again.
Larry was guarding the lolly pop stick...
Made the most of the lovely leather armchair this morning.
Caught up the big blog, more book writing and enjoyed some damn fine coffee!!
While kids are at Scouts, we are going to enjoy some adult time.....
By watching the second season of House Of Cards.....:P

Getting Used To Some Comfort!

We actually had sunshine today!
Larry had to go in to the garage to see where his Umph had gone!
So I had to walk back home (1.71 miles in 44 minutes)
I saw some wonderful views of my hometown
Then walked over to my dads...(0.65 miles in 18 minutes)
Smoke was coming off my shoes by now....
At last I can put my feet up in comfort!
On the free upgraded green leather suite I was given for nothing!

Tracks Of My Tears :'(

Back on the wet wobbly work wheel.
Out came those green wellingtons boots
Then off to the funeral of a good friend.
Dressed in black with a black hat.
As soon as I heard the opening song:
"Fields of Gold" by Sting,the tears came down :'(
I left a puddle of tears where I was sat :'(
(I could get a gold metal for crying so much!)
As he is buried in the same graveyard as my late mum.
I can visit them both.
I went to the wake afterwards with my brother.
Had a good chat with his family.
I left the wake in tears....:'(

More Fun With Larry!!!

Oh dear...
More torrid rain,
 Me getting soaking wet....again
Tried to get valve changed for Larry.
The seller failed to give me the locking wheel nuts to get my wheel off!!
He dropped them off, and disappeared.
5 minutes later, more bad news...
There was a nail in the tyre
 That made the tyre unrepairable!
Another tyre is needed!
 I really hope Larry is not going to be a future Money Pit!

Wet Soggy Hump

It was raining when I woke up.
Going to be a wet Hump Of The Week!
Went to get into Larry...
Oh dear flat tyre.
Gets a lift to work.
Then I work in torrid rain for the next hour.
(left my wellingtons at home again!)
Larry was collected to get some bits put right.
Torrid rain again for my job in the afternoon!
Larry was brought back.
"Nothing the matter with the value". I was told.
Comes back tonight...
I have another flat tyre!!
I will sort it out myself tomorrow,
After I have had a lift to work again!
At least I am doing some walking...

Nice To Be A Little Bit Different!!

First day back on the wobbly work wheel!
Was caught out by the rain doing the first shift.
I was wearing my summer coat (without hood)
Down it lashed down for 45 minutes :(
Took Larry for a trip to Webbs.
Dried out sipping on hot coffee and toast.
Had some funny looks and points of fingers from fellow 4x4 my Larry
Sometimes its nice to be a bit different....
