Welcome to my wet Saturday ☔
9 Years ago, I started my first time as a Lollipop Lady.

Spreading The Friday Feeling!

There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas.

Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈

I collected my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights. 
Now let's go to work...🍭
Still having car drivers not stopping.
Plenty of BOINGs given out.
It didn't help that was a pile of dog poop on the pavement over the road where I stand in the afternoon.
I was warning the parents about it before I crossed.
Some kids still managed to walk into it.
I had to put up with late braking of cars.
Some left it really late to stop!
Finished in one piece.
 I told the Clerk at the Parish Council about the dog poop.
She replied, "I always clean up after everyone, including dogs!"
I left and off to Dunelm I went.
I got the thermal linings for the kitchen curtain.
Back home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Dishwasher was unloaded and loaded up.
Now for that coffee...
I pinned the pair of thermal linings to the Kitchen curtain.
(They cover the kitchen door and one window)
That took a whole morning to take down, attach and put back up!
In need of some liquid refreshment!
Now to do the final afternoon shift.
On goes my Winter hats, Winter coat and gloves.
I turns on my lights.
I went down to the local Charity Shop...
I got some nice things...↓
Then I chat with one friend, as my other friend was running late.
We had a good rabbit....
I wished him a good weekend and I started my final shift of the week.
The cars over the otherside of the road was stopping in the KEEP CLEAR space, which I had trouble crossing the children over with no room for them to cross!
A few BOINGs were handed out for good measure!
At least I finished in one piece!
Back home I go.
Time for a brew!
Out comes the Air Fryer to do the Fish and Chips.
Hubby comes home and has a sloppy wet one 💋

Let's hope she doesn't play I didn't see the Yellow Peril dressed in yellow coat when my stick does a tap and crack on her windscreen. 
Finished in one piece.
Now to meet up with friends for coffee, chat and nibble. 
When I booked the table last night, I told them I can only have blue milk and not semi-skimmed milk.They phoned me saying they only use semi-skimmed milk.

Life And Death Row:
The Mass Execution in Arkansas. 
Life And Death Row: The Mass Execution is a documentary series about the historic number of executions scheduled in Arkansas, USA, of eight men in ten days. The Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, has scheduled eight men to be put to death within ten days of each other. The reason for the unprecedented timetable is to use up the state's supply of a lethal injection drug called midazolam before it expires.
Sleep Tea Time.
