Playing With My Pumpkins!

 I won a trip to China. I'm there now trying to win a trip back

Welcome to my Halloween 🍊
6 years ago, I had a rather bad accident.
Which caused my Achilles tendon to snap.
I had a op to rejoin the Achilles tendon.
8 months off work.
Went back to work for 2 and half weeks then it was the 6 weeks school holiday.
Then during August I was made redundant from my first Lollipop job :(
Now I am a lollipop lady with a different Council and in a different place \o/
Breakfast and Brew.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before he goes to work.
Gets dressed.
Now out for chat and coffee.
No bamboo to be seen!
Nice to be back.
Even though rain wasn't forecasted, I was glad I brought my rainmac with me.
Goes and gets my newspaper.
One Councillor drives past and puts his hand up!
Gets my paperwork to do my survey of the recreation ground.
I chats with some parents (Who I cross over the road when I am doing my Lollypop) 
The squirrels were out in force. 
Might need repairing again.
I handed my paperwork into the office.
I met up with my friend who I gave 2 James Bond Dvds, that we have already and he hasn't got them.
I noticed one of the cars in the car park had left their car lights on.
I went back into the hall, and told them.
The man was said thank you for telling him.
My friend and I went off to enjoy a coffee.
A great Pillar box topper.
Coffee and chat time.
My friend a pot of tea and a slice of chocolate cake.
I am going to be part of the Rememberance Service↑↑
Afterwards, we walked up to the Charity Shop.
Another Councillor went past and tooted his horn at me.
Got a great bargain, going to make us laugh later....↓
My friend and I walked back to the car park.
I wished a good week and see him next week.
Back home I go.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
I published one from last Monday.
Now for some liquid lunch.
I talked to hubby on his lunch break.
Unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back up.
Now to get the cake finished!
It's called:
Too Much Pumpkin
Then I put the tea in the oven.
Cup of brew is needed.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Hubby had a sloppy wet kiss 💋 when he came home.
We had a lovely fish and salad tea.
Now to carry on watching my Dvd collection on the Mafia↓
Really good.
Sleep Tea time.
We caught up on the news and newspaper review.
I hope for a nice warm Hump of the Day tomorrow 🐫

Gone! Just Like Magic!

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy - Spike Milligan.
Welcome to my Monday Motivation 😄
Breakfast and Brew.
(With my new Monday cup!)
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he goes to work.
On goes the poppy on my jacket ↓
As I am on the way out, I had a workman ask to move my car over the drive a bit.
I told him I was on the way out and you can use the drive. He was here to remove all the bamboo from next door's garden. I will park on the road when I come back.
Off I went....
I parked in the Co-op car park.
(There is only a 90 minute parking allowed)
I dropped the big bag of Dvds at the Charity Shop.
The actual buildings which includes the Charity Shop was  up for auction last week, someone bought it instead of it going for auction↓↓
I got a nice Robin scarf and a mini-cupcake baking tin↓↓
I chatted with a parent on the way back to Sexy Beast.
Picked up my shopping bag from Sexy Beast and went to get my newspaper and other bargains from the Co-op.
Back home I go.
I parked on the road.
The workman were outside.
"Finished? That was quick!"
They all laughed.
I may one a cup of tea.
I unpacked my bargains and shopping.
Cup of coffee time.
I wrote one blog post from last week.
Listened to Pick of the Pops from 1967 and 1979.
No liquid lunch today.
I chatted with hubby on his lunch break.
Back to writing yesterday's blog post.
Published last Monday's blog post.
Now to make some cake....
Out comes Kenny the Kenwood....
Goes in the oven.
Cup of Brew needed...
The workman thanked me for giving him a cup of tea.
After they left, I put Sexy Beast back on the drive. 
Let's have a look at the garden next door!
One bit of bamboo left!
Looking good :)
I got one cake tin out of the oven.
One left to bake.
I sort out my Council emails.
Salad for tea.
Let the cake cool down.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Now for a bit of Mafia....
I watched the first one.
Put the cake together and added the frosting to it.
I will decorate it tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
Hubby came back from Snooker.
He won his game, however his team lost 3-2 at the end. 
Time for a warm bed with a even warmer hubby!
