This Why I Don't Like Mondays!

Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional 
- Bob Monkhouse
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew
Even had to wear a jacket as it was quite chilly.
Now to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leaves.
Now the fun to get to work.
A van had broken down opposite the petrol station, that was causing delays. Gets to the island, tries to turn left,
Back past the broken down van, now to go to the busy way to work.
(The road is closed as a water pipe as burst and flooded the whole road) 
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
They didn't have no newspapers in the corner shop. Walked further down the road to turn on my lights.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick. 
Goes and turns on my lights.
Now let's go to work....
One parent in a black SUV thinks it funny to brake the last minute, twice!
Some parents I was trying to cross over, didn't find it funny! 
I had to give out two BOINGs as the cars on the other side wasn't stopping!
At least the sun was out!
Finished in one piece!
Off to Morrisons to get the newspaper.
Then to visit a Solictor's to sign and get my Statutory Declaration witnessed.
The Solictor asked "where I got the form from?"
"I printed off the internet,"I replied.
"The form is not legal......!" He said.
I will have to come back with the legal form.
Back home I went.
I need a strong coffee after that!
I tried to find the legal form.
I wrote yesterday's blog instead up to lunch.
No liquid lunch today.
I spoke to hubby on his dinner break.
I grabbed my rain mac as it wasn't looking too good for the weather.
Just get into the road where my spot is, and traffic lights!
We are going to have some fun later!
I just get the last space in the car park!
Gets my summer coat and summer hat.
Walks up to the first set of lights with one of my friends.
I ask the Open Reach worker is he is going to gone by the time I start...
He grumbles,"We should be out of your way by then."
I go off down to the Charity Shop. 
I buy my book back, to be one of the prizes of the Bake Off next Friday.
I gets something else which will look nice.
Steam Engine goes past.
Says goodbye to the staff in the Charity Shop.
Turns on my lights and walks back to Sexy Beast.
It starts to rain down.
I put on my winter coat.
Drops the book into the Council Office. 
We wait for the rain to stop to walk over to the square for a little rabbit.
The van was still blocking the middle of the road where I use to cross people over.
I say goodbye to my friends.
The traffic lights are still there.
I had to stop over the otherside of the road.
(Where I stay in the mornings)
Once the traffic lights were removed over the otherside of the road, and he parked to remove the traffic lights on my side, I crossed over the road to carry on. There was lots of traffic due to the road with the burst pipe being closed.
I was glad to finish in one piece!
As I was going home, the traffic was building up coming into the village.
Back home.
I put one lampshade up.
and the other one↓
Cup of brew is needed.
I had a early tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
I went outside to put the recycling out.
A large black thorn went through my croc , sock and ended up in the bottom of big toe!
Got it out finally!
In need of some light relief!
The lampshades are looking good!
My youngest son gets my hat box down with the hat I am wearing for my friend's funeral tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
*It just happens to be Russ Abbot's 76th Birthday.
Nice little Birthday Tribute to great man at the end of the blog post.*
That lavender shower worked....
Out like a light....!

Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to start the week with a little bit of sunshine 🌞
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before I go off to work.
On goes the Summer hat and summer coat
Big big sunglasses.
I go down the road to turn on my lights.
Hopefully the newspapers will back in on Wednesday.
Back to Sexy Beast to collect my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Once turned on.
Let's go to work...🍭
I had one car go under my stick.
Lots of new children to cross over.
I stand here to cross people over, then I see parents drag over the children over the road so not to walk a few yards for to cross them over!
Finished in one piece.
I went down to the Co-op to get my newspaper.
I saw one friend who I rabbit in the afternoon. I tapped him on the right shoulder and he looked round and didn't see me standing on his left.
He was in bed when I went round yesterday.
He was grateful for the green beans!
He was getting the newspaper for his sister.
"See you later," he said after paying for the newspaper and going out the door.
I collected my things and off to Sexy Beast I went. 
Back home.
Younger son was taking my bike to get it to be roadworthy.
I put his helmet and gloves in Sexy Beast.
  He walked the bike to Halfords.
I met him there.
While they looked at the bike.
We went over the road, had a look in the Charity Shop and Aldi.
We went back to Halfords to get result how roadworthy the bike was.
Not too bad, just a few bits, that the younger son was going to put right.
I went back home.
(He walked the bike back)
Coffee time!
No liquid lunch
I chatted to hubby on his lunch break.
Now back out to do the afternoon shift.
It looked rain, but I thought it was just cloudy.
The summer coat and summer hat still went on.
I turned on my lights and walked down to the Charity Shop.
They had one of my childhood toys in there!
Woo hoo!
Had a chat in the Charity Shop.
Said to goodbye and walked back up the road, turning on my lights.
Back to Sexy Beast to collect my big stick.
I met all my friends in the square for a rabbit.
Those dark clouds were worrying...
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
The rain kept off.
One old boy had to slam the brakes on as I walked out in front of his red car!
Still had car drivers stopping in the Keep Clear space!
Finished in one piece.
My friend came back with some cucumbers and tomatoes he had got.
We walked back to Sexy Beast and had another rabbit for twenty minutes.
I wished him a good night and off home I went.
Cup of brew time.
I put hubby's tea in the oven.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
I had my tea.
I looked in today's newspaper.
We watched the last remaining episodes of:
Sleep Tea Time
