Counting To Ten!

I'm not a snob.Ask anyone. Well,anybody who matters. 
- Simon LeBon
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ‘Ύ
Warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Had a lie-in listening to the radio in bed.
After a while, it's time to get up!
I need a few items for tonight's meal.
I'm giving Asda a miss and trying Morrisons.
Taking Sexy Beast out for a ride.
We only needed 8 items.
It was so packed with people, that each till that was open, that was a queue of 10+ people down in each aisle. We were in the queue for the self service. People were thinking it was a  good idea to jump in front of us who were queueing! 
By the time we got to the front of the queue, I had enough of the queue jumpers....
"The queue for this till is at the back of that long queue:"I said.
Pointing to the long queue behind me.
Three people took the hint.
As we unloaded our shopping onto the belt, a couple with their grown up daughters jumped ahead of the queue and unloaded their shopping on the next self service till. The man with the earphones tried to get into the act, until I told him where the actually queue was!
I was so glad to get out of there.
This was worst than shopping at Christmas!
Surely there are limits on how many customers you can have in a store!
I got a takeaway coffee and the woman serving me, told me:
"People were queueing up since 9.30am to get in here!"
Get's back to Sexy Beast, to enjoy the lovely coffee!
Finally back home!
Light lunch without soup today!
Now to start on the dessert for tonight.
I tried not to repeat what I did last week with the lemons....
Once done, let it set in the fridge.
Just in time for Tea at 3. 
I wrote yesterday's blog post 
&
Added some great tunes for my Jukebox on Twitter too.
Tea was served up.
I went to serve up the dessert,
When trying to take off the cling film...
It was crash!
Good job I had spares!
Lemon Posset!
Quick read of today's newspaper.
I missed off a big Birthday for someone yesterday.

Bonus 10 points denied!
One woman saw the incident, and said to me:
"I think you have to walk into moving traffic to get the cars to stop!"
I said to that;"That's one way to ticket to heaven or hell (depending what I am trying to stop!) It the lollipop stick that goes in the road first not me!"
She replied to that:
"The previous lollipop man did it!"
I commented to it:
"He must have had a Death Wish!"
