Looking Back....!

 I was so poor I didn't know where my next husband was coming from - Mae West.
Welcome to my Saturday 🌸
I woke up at 5.30am and needed a brew.
I had a nice brew while waiting for "Sounds of the 60s" to start.
While "Sounds of the 60s" was on.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.

Do You Want To Know A Secret?

Sleeping Beauty arose from the his pit.
We had brew with breakfast.
Then he and younger son went to do the food shopping for the week.
 I put the coffee machine on.
Can't use the washing machine this weekend, so I watered the plants in the garden and fed the birds.
 Coffee time!
A bird came visiting...
Once hubby and son came back.
We unloaded the shopping.
Had a light lunch.
Back out again.
Off to see my parents....
Made sure the cross won't come apart again.
Hubby likes this gravestone so much.
He wants this design for the gravestone for his late dad and his family.
As once his dad's ashes are put into the family plot with the other 5 members of the family.
The gravestone with all 6 names on it and the infamous photo of hubby's dad smiling and with his red tie!
Had chat with my parents.
Tidied up Bill's grave opposite as all the flowers fell down off his grave.
Then off to look around Sainsburys.
Great Private Eye front cover.
I saw an old friend who still is a Postman.
Haven't see a man to do a runner NOT to talk to me for ages....;)
Back home for a much needed BREW!
Puts the faggots in the oven.
Peeled the potatoes.
Peas put in the saucepan.
Quick look in the newspaper.

The Yellow Peril Returns!

 The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
I was so stiff from sleeping on the sofa last night.
I woken up by sleeping beauty....
While he was making breakfast, I got dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Time for...
We did all the Heardles...
My favourite was Heardle 60s...
Now to leave house for job...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I fetched the newspaper and next door's neighbour's magazine.
It was going to rain, 
On goes the winter coat, with summer hat and no gloves.
I turn on my lights...
Let's hope the car drivers are gentle with me after the last few days I have had!
No chance!
One car went straight under my big stick, and was inches away from his windscreen.
I was in the middle of the road, and the Learner left it a bit too late too brake.
An emergency stop was done, inches away from  me!
Many of parents were glad to see me back.
They asked how the funeral went.
I told them what went on, and they couldn't believe it.
"I won't be seeing them again anytime soon \o/" 
I said.
Then a BMW driver tried her luck!
My big stick was out in front,
Windscreen or stop
Emergency stop at the last minute.
I safely got back to the pavement.
The rain was carrying on.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Goes back out...
Coffee Date.
I chats with the current postman to find out what's happening with the repick.
The whole office has had a repick, all depends on how long you have been there.
I would have been there for 32 years....
Now for coffee!
My friend joined for a good yak!
Another coffee and nibble.
Yum Yum.
Enjoyed the chat, coffee and nibbles.
Now back home.
Didn't feel like soup.
Turkey and Mustard sandwich.
Now out for part 2 of the day.
Various weather reports say either cloudy or rain.
I got out my summer coat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits for my friends to arrive. 
My friends appear.
Time for a rabbit...
Wished them a good weekend.
Now to do the final shift of the week.
Oh dear back to it again.
Nearly clipped a windscreen as it went under my big stick.
One man is a red car went under the stick.
I did the BOING, he turned into the side road.
Kept shouting at me!
I crossed more kids over the road.
He then came back for another go at me.
He parked on double yellow lines and delivered two bags of food at the house opposite me.
He kept shouting at me, I ignored him and carried on doing my job.
After that fun episode, nothing else happened.
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
In need of a brew!
Now to get the blog updated.
Wrote about yesterday.
Now to put the blog back on!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one when he comes home.
He does the tea....
Tea is done.
Yum!
