Alone Again Or for me!
Watered all the plants before it got too hot.
Quick look in the newspaper with coffee↓

 The computer says no↓
 After writing yesterday's blog post.
I unloaded and loaded up the dishwasher
Now to enjoy sitting in the garden↓
I am having 2 Zoom meetings with my soon to be employers and my Union Rep over the next 2 weeks.
(They didn't seem it appropriate to tell me of the upcoming redundancy of me until I got the papers slapped on me yesterday...
Funny the employment laws have changed since the 1850's)
 My orders off windmills came.
I had to put them all together↓
 They are scattered about the garden↓
 Light lunch time↓
 My Amazon orders found me↓

 I told the delivery driver how bad Hermes were to misdelivering my parcels.
Always shop Amazon she said.
Time for tea at 3↓

 Sat outside to read the lastest issue of "Prima" magazine.
Which gave me some good ideas....what to do with Poms Poms....
Then to put the tea on for later....
Packed with loads of garlic,lentils,mushrooms....
The kids ate all of it up!

 I had my delivery of hola hoops arrive..↓

 Off to work I go in the sunshine↓

With some great music↓

 Back to enjoy the sunshine in the garden

 Ice cream time↓

 The moon coming out↓

 My hair is getting like Worzel...
I ordered some hair clippers....
Suddenly we were having a gale of wind in the garden.
The windmills were going hell for leather.
It probably was my late dad venting his anger of me going to do my short hair again.
"You look like a bloody coconut!"
 What he always said after I had my number 2  hair cut.
I used to reply back to him.
"If you don't like the look of it, wear a paper bag!"
We ran out of time to watch "Hill Street Blues".
I dragged a tired a hubby off to a warm bed with my even warmer fingers....🐫

Keep The Friday Feeling Coming!

 It's still cold↓
 The road that was flooded yesterday, was clear of water now.

I heard of the stories of the flooding from parents. One former customer (I used to deliver his mail),told me of the journey he had travelling from Bath to Studley yesterday.(From Snow to Floods)
The driver of a blue car was doing it again.
Twice last week he was drinking out of a cup while driving, the following day he was eating toast while driving.
Monday morning he was drinking out of a cup and putting on his seat belt while he went past me.
Today, he was drinking out of another cup while driving....! 
Back home...
