No Tongues Given

Hope the ride on that unicorn doesn't hurt too much - my quote in a co-worker's leaving card.
Tuesday is a day of goodbyes...
Co-workers at my jobs are leaving on their unicorns for fields of retirement....
(More about that later..)
I am getting used to getting up early once more....
  I gave out 3 sloppy 💋💋💋 when everyone left.
I had things to get on with after being so busy yesterday....
Coffee First↓
 Bins emptied..
A bit of blogging..
I got talking to my neighbour and forgot about the time!!!
A very late Liquid Lunch!
 The sun was trying to come out..
Double figures↗↗↗↗  
Time for those big big sunglasses to come out...
I get my  newspaper..↓

Gets to my job a bit later than I normally get there....
(I had 20 minutes before I officially start work)
Everyone worrying that I wasn't going to be in...
I just quotes the quote...
"Assumption is the mother of all ......!"
*I find out my co-worker is leaving in July!*
At least the weather stopped dry....
Back home in the sunshine, listening to non stop classic 60s hits!
 
 In need of a strong coffee!
Off to my other job.
It was a co-worker's last day.
I gave him a card from me last week...
I still signed the work leaving card...
We were all gathered together to say Goodbye to him...
Speeches were said like:
"We had a our good and bad times, it's called work!"
(I thought that sounded like a song title)
He was given his Leaving card and present.
While I went into the factory,
He was staying goodbye to the workers in there.
He came over to me, and told me to put my mop bucket down for a goodbye hug.
He said beforehand...."No Tongues!"
I laughed, and "Wished him well for the future!"
I bought something home for my Gerbils to play in...↓
At least my Body Shop order arrived...
Having dry skin is not fun....
At least this keeps it at bay....↓
I got our evening meal sorted...
Amazing what you can put together...
Mince, Spinach, garlic, red onions,can of chopped tomatos, and ginger, with a packet of Linguine....
We had four empty plates...
We caught up with Gordon in↓
 There were some shocking hotels from what we watched....
We were all surposed to be going to bed early......
Someone had to sort their cooking stuff out,
10 minutes before their bedtime!
I'm just hoping for a dry Hump tomorrow and not a wet one!
