At Least I Haven't Caught It Yet!

 He looks as if someone has just poured cold porridge in his wellingtons - Anon
Welcome to my Thursday πŸŽͺ
Another good night's sleep I had ;)
Heardle Time.
 Heardle 60s:
My answers:
I had my breakfast and brew for one:
I took a test before breakfast.
The results was:
Thank god!
It started to rain when I left the house!
No sloppy wet one for hubby.
(He has Covid!)
I get on my Winter coat and gets the newspaper.
On goes the Winter waterproof gloves and winter hat.
I turn on my lights.
I wait uncover to start as it is still raining.
I still have the normal BOINGS to give out to the cars and vans on the opposite side of the road!
Then we have vans parking opposite me on double yellow lines!
One van drove off, turned around in the side road, parked up for further up the road to get his mate in the van, however as his friend got in, the van driver drove off with the passenger door still open!
Another van parked there again!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Instead of the Co-op, I visited Aldi instead.
Some lovely things in there!
While I was waiting for my things to be scanned.The woman in front of me, bought back a gammon joint, which had gone off,
(It was still in date, and she had the receipt)
A member of staff called Jack, had to get rid of it!
Paid for my food, loaded it up in Sexy Beast, and off home I went. 
My coffee machine went on.
Hubby was still feeling crap.
Put the shopping away.
Time for coffee!
My late father's in law's house is now up for sale.
All that hard work, I did to make the house to look good!
Light lunch
The sun has returned!
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits in the square for my friends.
They both come.
Rabbit time!
It was time to do job.
I said goodbye to them.
Right let's do it!
Oh dear, my big stick isn't big enough to get those cars on the opposite side of the road from stopping! I think the button labelled invisible, has got stuck, as people are just not seeing me!
Few BOINGs given out!
Finished in one piece.
Now home I go.
In need of a cup of brew!
I get on with making tonight's tea.
Everyone is home.
Older son is not at his night job.
Pork Chops with stuffing and Veggies.
Now to look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1960:
Ricky Valance - Tell Laura I Love Her
UK No.1 on this day in 1973:
Simon Park Orchestra - Eye Level (Theme from Thames TV Series Van Der Valk)
US No.1 on this day in 1958:
Tommy Edwards - It's All In The Game. 
Sleep Tea Time.
Off to a big King Size bed on my own.
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Trying To Keep The Cold Bits Warm!

You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do - Olin Miller
Welcome to my Thursday🎈
Could the schools be closed down soon?
I enjoyed my a warm hug and a cup of tea↓
 I gave everybody their sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Before I left the house↓
 It was freezing cold.
My tree pic↓
  I told one man who asked me if I was warm enough?
I replied,"I will be wearing these thermals for a long time yet, you can never have cold bits!"
He laughed.
Another man was moaning about the books in the local library. I suggested some Stephen King.He doesn't like horror.
"What about James Herbert? He does some great books!"
I left him with a food for thought!
Still some cars don't understand the word Stop! 
I finished in one piece...JUST!
I filled up Sexy Beast  
 I had a nice light lunch↓
 Now for more singing along...↓
I had a look in the newspaper↓
 Clarence "Frogman" Henry, American pianist and singer (Ain't Got No Home).He is 83 years old🎈
 Ruth Pointer  is an American R&B/Soul singer and eldest member of the vocal group The Pointer Sisters.She is 74 years old🎈 
Terry Hall is an English musician and the lead singer of The Specials, and formerly of Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield, Terry, Blair & Anouchka and Vegas.He is 61 years old 🎈

 I looked over the fields of fun↓
 Only two days left of dishing up the school dinner.
When I left I had a nice red face.
Back to some more singing along↓
 The bin must have had something to drink↓
 Quick coffee...
Then back out...
Some of the cars were still failing to stop.
I survived for my last day tomorrow.
I gets back home.
Off to the Happy Place Of Work 
With some great music↓
Back home for some nice tea↓
We nipped into Aldi to get some flowers for my mum for Mothering Sunday↓
 There was no bread, jam or meat on the shelves. I am glad I got the flowers!
When I got back,
I went down to do the final job of the day with some great music↓
By the time I got back...
My rollers were so hot hot hot... 
 My final day at two of my jobs tomorrow.
At least the Friday Feeling is returning...🎈

How Many Boxes????

Beauty is only skin deep, ugly to the bone - Murphy's Law
We had a bit of a lie-in.
It was nice to have a warm hug and a cuppa↓ 
 We still had loads of boxes to sort through.
I needed a break!
Off to do some food shopping↓
I bumped into an ex-co-worker who I used to work with at 
 If it got any worst with panic buying, and soldiers would be called out. She would argue with a soldier with a loaded gun if she had too, she told me.
Good luck with that! I told her.
There was a nice sewing machine for sale↓
 I have two, I don't need a third!
We go into Lidl and there is no pasta, bread or toilet roll again.
I bump into a good friend trying to find some dried spaghetti.
We get the shopping home.
Something has to come out of the freezer..
Why leave it to go to waste?↓
 I sorted all the things I need for my the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
So many boxes to sort out.
The Plumber is coming out next Saturday to fit the dishwasher and washing machine.
We all went to bed early,
As Monday's are the most tiring day of the week!
