I gets my winter coat, winter hats and gloves.
Goes and gets my newspaper.
I hope the lorry will have moved before I start my shift!
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick!
Now to turn on my lights...
Turns on my lights.
Let's go to work..🍭
Only three boings given out.
One man driving an old Rover put his hand up as he drove past!
At least the sun is appearing.
I could be losing at least one layer in the afternoon!
Finished in one piece.
I did some top up shopping at the Co-op.
Then got some petrol.
Back home I went!
On goes the coffee machine.
Followed by the dishwasher.
Now for coffee!
I found a picture of my house, 5 months before I moved in!
I wrote one blog post up to lunch.
Liquid lunch time!
Now to get ready to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my winter coat, winter gloves and 2 winter hats.
I go and turn on my lights.
I return back to Sexy Beast.
Both friends are here for a little rabbit.
We hear a bang coming over where I normally stand for my job. We notice a van pull up with a panel missing from the side of the van.
The van driver stopped the van, and went and retrieved the missing panel. Then we watched him try to put it back on.
He had help from someone to try and fit it back.
One friend said goodbye and went to work.
My other friend and I walked around to the square to carry on watching to see if the missing panel was going to fixed on.
In the end he tied it on and taped it on.
Then he drove off.
We walked down to see if the Charity Shop was open. It wasn't.
Some fun I am going to have tomorrow↓
There  are surely going to be traffic lights?
 The low lying sun is going to cause some problems again.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Afternoon shift! 
Oh dear, cars not stopping on the otherside.
BOING x 3.
I gave out one loud BOING and the car driver turned round to see me walking across the road with my big stick!
Some of the schools are closing early because of the Teacher's Strike.
I will still be here!
Finished in one piece!
Now back home.
One large cup of brew.
Attempted to get one blog post finished by the time hubby came back.
The youngest son was going to the University of Birmingham for a Chemistry Lecture with his Second Year A-Level Chemistry class.

Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Last Monday of January \o/
Heardle Time.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew.
Thermal vest goes on as well as lots of layers.
Still got a bit of a stomach upset, which I don't need!
Now to to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
I have to go the long way round to work to avoid 2 sets of traffic lights.
On goes the winter coat, 2 hats, and winter gloves.
I gets the newspaper.
Now to fetch my big stick...
I go and put on my lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
I just crossed someone over,I saw the small VW 19 plate car that wouldn't stop on Friday when I was in the middle of the road and nearly took my arm off!
I had a few BOINGs to dish out as well.
Nice to catch up with what's been happening in everyone's world!
I finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
The coffee machine goes on.
Loads and puts on the dish washer (twice)
Now to finish putting satin varnish on the toads we painted yesterday.
Left them to dry.
Now for some liquid lunch.
I was getting to ready to go and do the afternoon shift.
I had a interesting visit from the Council worker to look at doing the Pointing (to stop the wall wobbling when I close my back door).
He looked at it and we got chatting.
Half an hour chatting in the back garden,
Then I showed in the front of the house, and another hour of chatting....
I told him about the meeting I had, and piss taking I had from the three in the meeting about how much stuff I had, and hinting I am a Hoarder!
He laughed.
"No way  you are a Hoarder!"He said.
"You have made my day!" I replied.
He then went on to say,"If they say Hoarding again, just mention have they done the Dignity course?
That will should shut them up!"
Now to try to remember the Dignity course...
He then went on about a case of a Hoarder he had to deal with:
"3 level house, top floor hadn't been opened since 1971. All the rooms full on the second floor, the only room that was lived in was the Living room.
9 vans and 7 flat bed trucks it took to take empty the house!"
Then we go on to vinyl and Heardles.
He mentioned Alexa has a game of Spot the Intro. I will have a go on that later.
I said "Goodbye and hope to see you again!"
I looked at my watch and realised I might be late for the afternoon shift!
I had to go the long way around to avoid the traffic lights.
Just got one parking space that was left when I got there! Phew!
On goes my winter hat, winter coat and gloves.
As I turn on my lights.
I got chatting with a lovely friend who makes me laugh and vice versa.He is having a second bout of chemo for skin cancer.
I wished him well, and went and get my big stick.
One of my friends appeared.
He had walked down to the Charity Shop and looked through the window.
Someone went past and shouted to him:
"We know who you are looking for!"
I told him, "Too much yakking has made me late!"
My other friend couldn't come as her daughter had Chicken Pox.
Collected my stick and we went to wait in the square to have a little rabbit.
It was time to say goodbye.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
The low lying sun was a bit of a pain.
A few BOINGs given out for not stopping.
The low lying sun was being covered by clouds which helped!
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
The No.1 on the Feel Good Chart that Greatest Hits Radio was counting down, turned out to be:
Get home.
The frogs had dried and to put them outside.
Now for a cup of brew!
I didn't have a Stir Fry today.
I am playing safe with a salad instead!
Only could eat half of it :(
Kids finished off their pizzas.
Then they went off to the Town Hall to observe the full council meeting.
I looked into today's newspaper.

The house was sold)
I had a nice hot shower.
Sleep Tea Time.
I had a quick go on Spot the Intro with Alexa.
I didn't know the first two songs.
I got the third one right, however Alexa shut the game down when I told her correct song!
Oh well, try again tomorrow!
Let's hope for a even better day tomorrow!
