Collects my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Once I put on my lights.

There is some work at the Angel light opposite me. The light hasn't been on since the big switch on last Friday.
There were a few cars had to brake quickly!
A few BOINGs were given out.
I was getting well warm in all my layers!
Off went the Panda Hat and one glove!
Opened my coat to let the steam out!
Finished in one piece...
I went down the Co-op to get bits for my homemade soup.

I got my bits and headed home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now for some housework.
Loaded up Dishwasher.
Puts the bins out for tomorrow.
Put the shopping away.
Put the soup maker on.
Now for coffee..
Once the soup was done, in a big jug it went.
That should last up to 3 days!
Ticked off things I have got for everyone for Christmas.
Wrote out the list of people for Christmas Cards.
As of every year the list goes down every year.
I will have to send off the Christmas Cards to people who live outside the Redditch soon.
I am making a Fake Faux Pom Pom wreath.
I have ordered some Pom Poms in the sale.
I hope they come before Christmas.....

Now out to enjoy the afternoon shift! 
I only put on one hat, winter coat and winter gloves goes on. Turns on my lights, and returns to sit in Sexy Beast until my friends appear.
One friend appears and we go have a rabbit in the square. We are then joined by another friend and his dog.
The time goes on, and then it's time for me to start my shift.
I say goodbye to my friends, and so I start.
Here we again.....
Refusing to stop on the otherside of the road.
Pity I haven't got a much longer big stick!
Then it's stopping in the Keep Clear space.
I was offered free milk by one of the houseowners on the otherside of the road.
"Yes Please!" I say.
Finished in one piece.
Collected my free milk and back to Sexy Beast.
Back home I go.
Now for a cup of brew.
I put the multi-coloured pasta in a saucepan of  boiling water.
Once that was done, added the homemade tomato sauce, gave it a big stir.
Hubby came home and a had a big sloppy one 😘
Tea was served up.
Everyone ate their's \o/

Goes and get my newspaper.
Fetches my big stick and goes and turns on my lights.
The Christmas lights look nice.
Once I turned on my lights, I could see a whole up near where I stand.
Taxi parked behind a parked lorry.
The taxi moved in front of the lorry.
Then for 15 minutes I had to put up with not being able to see the traffic coming up the road.
Then it didn't help 3 work van/lorries parking on double yellow lines opposite where I am stood, to go and fetch their breakfast! 
Pity I can't clamp them!
Still gave out BOINGs.
Some cars had to break hard as they were going too fast. 
Five minutes before I finished, a yellow van decides to park on the double yellow lines, and go and fetch his breakfast!
 Pity I can't clamp it!
Finished in one piece!
I had my picture took with the signed ball...

My other friend didn't come as he was out with his family.
I also got chatting to my Hairdresser who now has gone from the Hairdressing shop to do Mobile Hairdressing instead.

One car went under my stick...
I stopped one woman and she shook her head as she drove away!
I told one parent I had 215 likes on a picture I put on FB showing me in my Glitter trousers.
"They liked you keeping your trousers on?"
They replied.
(Strange question.)

I parked around the corner.
On went the winter coat, gloves, and two hats.

After putting the lovely pics of the Christmas Lights on FB.
Someone wrote under them:
"Light Pollution"
I turned on my lights, and walked back to the square....
One friend wasn't coming.
The other friend arrived and gave me a large Belgian bun to eat later.
He told me, "His dog got into the cake box, and ate a mince pie and a slab of cake! The dog had no tea that night for that!"
Then I had two friends arrive for a rabbit with their dog who was sniffing for my cake....
My former hairdresser and her boss came out from having coffee at the near-by coffee shop for rabbit too!
One of my friends reminded me that I was due to start work in 3 minutes!
Just time to get my coat done up.
When it was time, I said "Goodbye" to everyone!
Lots of sudden braking.
Stopping in the Keep Clear area.
A few BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Found a large item on the pavement.
That could have caused some mischeif!
Time for a much needed brew!
Started on the Stir Fry.

He had got two magic bags on the way home.
