Give Me Your Job Mate!

"Did you really pose for that calender with nothing on?"
"I had the radio on!"- Marilyn Monroe
Welcome to my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Hug to start the working week with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left.
It was forecasting just to be cloudy.
On went the Summer coat.
Put the lights on,
Now for the fun to start....🍭
One customer who I used to work,
Came down to fetch his newspaper.
On the way back,
He asked,"How much do I get paid?"
I didn't answer that.
"When I retire, I want your job!"He said.
"You will waiting for a long time to have my job,"I told him.
After that bit of fun..
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Much needed coffee.
Now to leave the house to get my Flu Jab.
Looking down the road to the Doctors.
Waiting in the waiting room.
Went in early, in the left arm,
Next stop was a visit to our Town Hall.
No Reception Desk.
You had to wait at the counter where everybody pays their rent,council tax etc.
Only one on the counter...
Pull teeth time!
I gave the woman the envelope.
"Does it contain money?"I was asked.
"No,just a form,thanks."I replied.
Next stop was Dunelm.
I was in the lift with an other woman.
She pointed to my empty trolley and then to her empty trolley and said:
"Looks like we have the same problem!"
I finally found the duvet cover that they didn't have in last month!
I went to pay for it, and it came back as £55!!!!!
"That can't be right, it says £28 on the front.
I had to have a £27 refund!
Gets home.
Puts the duvet cover on the bed.
Then to repot some plants that was delivered this morning.
I have now used all my pots and compost.
So glad to have some lunch.
Now for the second part.
I chose leave my summer coat on, as the rain wasn't due in until at least 5pm.
After I put on my lights, I chatted to the woman who gave me loads of plants in July.
(I returned the favour by doing the same)
She gave me a pot of cuttings.
I dropped off the pot and collected my stick.
Some car drivers were stopping.
More can be said to the cars on the otherside of the road.
At least I survived for another day!
I had a 20 minute chat with my friend afterwards.
Back home.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Once that was done.
Now to put the tea on.
Meat-Free Stir Fry.
Now to catch up with some reading of a few newspapers.
Including today's.
Richard Kiel was an American actor and voice artist. Standing 7 ft 2 in (218 cm) tall, he was known for portraying Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979); he lampooned the role with a tongue-in-cheek cameo in Inspector Gadget (1999). Kiel's next-most-recognized role is the tough but eloquent Mr. Larson in Happy Gilmore (1996). Other notable films include The Longest Yard (1974), Silver Streak (1976), Force 10 from Navarone (1978), Cannonball Run II (1984), Pale Rider (1985) and Tangled (2010)
He would have been 82 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 74 in 2014.

Sleep Tea Time.
I went to bed early as hubby was playing Snooker...
However by 3.35am I was sleeping on the sofa as his snoring was so loud, I could hear it with my earplugs in!
