Government is to life what pantyhose are to sex - PJ. O'Rourke
Welcome to my warm Tuesday 😎
I have a Planning Meeting to go to later on.
Breakfast and Brew.
Blue summer dress time.
Puts on my jacket on and it's time to leave.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off I go...
My summer coat and summer hat goes on.
I go and put on my lights and get my newspaper.I swap my newspaper for my big stick.
I got chatting to people who wanted to know about things.I would find out the answers to them later on .
I turned on my lights and walked down to my spot.
The cars on the otherside are still driving through. One red mini drove straight under my stick, and done the Limbo.
If my stick was a bit lower it could have scratched that nice shiny black roof of his!
Finished in one piece.
Now to drop off the raffle prizes.
Dropped them round, and got questions on bad parking. I will find out the answers for it.
Back home I go.
On goes the coffee machine as well as the washing machine.
Sorts out the things I need for the meeting tonight.
Wrote one blog post.
Hung the washing on the line.
Liquid lunch time.
Let's hope yesterday doesn't repeat itself!
On goes Crowded House Greatest Hits.
I did have to blast my horn, as a Camper van tried to pull out on me from a side road!
It tried to speed up to catch me, but another car got in front it!
I put on my summer hat and summer coat.
Met another Councillor and showed me around the Recreation Ground.Once a fortnight I have to go round and inspect everything.
There are 3 signs telling people no dogs allowed.
One man was on his phone with two dogs.
I was going to tell him dogs are not allowed.The other Councillor told him,
"Didn't know," came back the man's answer! 
We finished looking at everything.
Said goodbye to him, and walked up to turn on the lights.
Then off to look into the Charity Shop.
On the case about the sign being put down Birmingham rd.
Turned on my ligths and walked back to Sexy Beast. 
Collected my big stick and we went into the square for a rabbit.
Enjoying the suns rays.
Then it was time to say goodbye to my friends.
The cars on the otherside were not stopping.
BOINGs given out to them.
Last minute brakers on my side.
Finished in one piece.
Now back home.
Puts the food in the oven.
Cup of brew time.
Hubby comes home and has a sloppy wet one 💋
It was nice tea.
(Forget to take a pic)
Now I have to go out for a Council Meeting.
Gets stuck behind a Sunday Driver on the way there.
The High Street is even busier at this time than at went I am on a duty in the afternoon.
Gets to the Meeting in time.
All done in 23 minutes.
Back home I go.
Hubby had put the duvet cover inside out.
He said he hadn't!
Until I showed him the label! 
I helped him put it right.
I'm glad the windows were open, as sweating cobs after that!

Reaching For The Gardening Gloves....

Did you really pose for that calendar with nothing on?
"I had the radio on!" - Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to my Sunday Love 💓
Nice big hug...
Brew with breakfast.
Up I got,
Thermal vest goes on.
Lots of chores to do...
Coffee machine goes on....
As does the breadmaker..
Now to get out for some fresh air...
Nips to the local garden centre.
Reminds of someone....
Meets someone in there, I used to work with.
She left the company, 3 weeks ago.
They still haven't replaced me after 2 years!
We loaded the plants in the car.
Then off to Co-op for some reduced food.
One of my friends who I talk to on weekday afternoons was just driving off in his car.
I shouted several times, he finally stopped.
I asked him,"If there were any bargains to be had."
"I didn't see any,"He said.
"I will see you next week, and have a good Sunday!" I said to him.
We get a trolley and look in there.
Loads of reduced food!
Loaded up car, and off to see my parents.
I taking away the pot of plants, as the lavender has died over the winter.
Back home we go.
Unloads the car of food and plants.
The bread was done!
We had sandwiches outside in the sunshine.
Afterwards, he did his thing.
I had some quiet time in the garden to pot and tidy up the garden!
Not bad for 3 hours gardening!
Meanwhile hubby had been getting on with the Roast Chicken Tea.
We then caught up with the final episode of "Dragon's Den".
"Have I Got News For You!"
Final 2 episodes of the second season of "Fame"
Quick look in the newspaper.

Starting To Feel It!

Appreciate me now, and avoid the rush - Ashleigh Brilliant
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice hug with warm brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left the house.
(He is having a lie-in, as he is on holiday from work)
Time for a play of the CD that came yesterday.
I picked up the newspaper on the way to B3..
I gets to park in B3 \o/
I met my friend for chat, coffee and nibble.
One good yak...
I bought something...
This is what it looks like outside the box.
Fits somewhere with the rest of the Lemax we have got at Christmas...
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for more finger tapping along with the big songs...
Back home.
At least I got my Zoflora!
Hubby had been on my spin bike and watching "Squid Games".
Light lunchtime.
Now for a bit of Netflix binge..
Hubby then went shopping with younger son.
I had two blog posts to write.
I put tea in the oven.
Once they come back and I finished my blog posts.
Later on, tea was ready.
The curtains arrived for my son's room.
They are the bigger version of those in the Dining room.
Now to binge a bit on Prime Video.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
