We Need To Talk!!!

Men are like car alarms - they both make a lot of noise no one listens to - Diane Jordan
Welcome to my Thursday 😳πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯
Nice hug to start the day with.
Brew with breakfast.
Dressed.
I had to fix some garden netting to the garden gate.
Hubby went out to get stuff to sort out his cough, and having no voice.
While he was out, he picked up the newspaper and next door's magazine.
Much needed coffee after that!
The Postman came and instead of closing the gate, he closed it and took it off his hinges!
I had to put the gate back properly after he left.
Hubby came back and took the magazine around to the next door neighbour.
The thanks he got for this was:
"You better go on a diet, your wife had better use smaller plates!"
Cheek!
Then hubby had a message from his brother:
"We need to talk!!!"
I thought that was first..
Then it all kicked off!!
The squeaky girl's voice sounded angry,
"What the hell is she playing at???"
"We are still grieving here..."
(So we ain't then!)
All he kept on about was my blogpost from Tuesday....
Just about the receipt for the shoes and not the stuff they had took out of the house!
Where is their dad's tablet and phone??? 
I want to know
 I could have just pressed off button on the phone for that squeaking....
I went upstairs and phoned a friend.
After I spoke to my friend and hubby got off the phone. 
We both needed a drink!
I looked at the shopping list of my late Father-in-law, I brought back from Tuesday.
Buying lots of Tassimo pods from Tesco for the Tassimo machine, that wasn't his!
When we go up next time, I will put the empty tassimo coffee machine box into the recycle bin.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then I took the blog down until my Father-in-law's funeral.
Then the gloves will be off and the blog will be back....πŸ‘… 
It looks like they were snouting through my hubby's FB and discovered the blog!
 Time for hissy girly fit! 
Now they all have been restricted for causing this, can only see Public Posts...
I blocked them over 11 years....on FB.
Time for the tea....
Now to look in today's newspaper.

Ice Cold Monday

A true friend is one who stabs you in the front - Oscar Wilde
Welcome abroad my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start the working week with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Looked out of window...
It looks cold out there!
Thermal vest goes on.
&
Plenty of layers to match!
Now to uncover Sexy Beast. 
Nice full moon!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
On the way to work, the temperature drops further to  -1.5c.
Two winter hats, and big big winter gloves go on.
Goes onto put on my lights.
Still seeing tanks and cars with no lights on.
Lights go on, now to walk on down the road to my spot.
There is a poster of a female comedienne to do her act soon on the nearby telegraph pole near to my post.
(Bear this in my mind for later)
I knew it was going to be one of those day.
Several cars stop in the KEEP CLEAR space, thus me not be able to cross kids over, had to do it further up the road!!!!
FFS
One car went past with only a little hole he had made to see out of the windscreen, no other windows was scraped!
One parent said of the woman on the poster,
"That's your twin sister! Are you going to see her perform?"
I smiled and said,"What do I want to do that for?
When I can look in the mirror and be funny!"
One big lorry parked in the KEEP CLEAR space.
Good job there was a space behind it for me to cross the kids over!
Then it was the turn of car doing the limbo under my stick, plenty of BOINGS giving out!
The man who had a trip to Finland before our first Lockdown appeared.
He asked who makes me laugh?
"Programmes like Ain't Half Hot Mum, Kenny Everett, Dear John,etc"
He likes Chubby Brown, I replied, Les Dawson.
Then he said,"Jimmy Carr."
I replied,"Can't stand him, he is funny as a Chocolate fireguard in a hot summer!"
I then crossed him and someone else over.
Finished this interesting morning session.
Now to nip into the Post Office to post my letter to the American Prison Pen Pal.
Because I enclose a homemade facemask I made, it was a bulky, I had to fill out a customs note.
£4.20 later.
(Still cheaper than flying out to hand deliver it!)
Collects newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now to change into my pink lyrca!
Out comes the spin bike
&
On go another film to watch.
Just getting into it.
Knock on the door.
"Can I take a parcel in for next door?"
"Yes," give him my name, puts parcel on my stairs.
Swings leg over bike to start again.
Knock on the door again.
Gets off swing bike, the delivery driver wants parcel back as my neighbour son is there with him wanting his parcel. I give the delivery driver the parcel back, and shuts the door.
Now back onto the spin bike I go.
After 35 minutes on that, out comes the Abs machine.
A good 20 minutes on that!
While I was working out on that, the soup maker was on.
Puts Abs machine back.
Get's changed.
Now to have some nice soup with coffee!
Chicken and Veg Soup.
Blue skies are out!
Round two.
Next door's carer had parked behind my car.
I came out, and she reversed off the drive!
Big Big Sunglasses Time
I puts on two hats, and gloves.
Turns on my lights and chats with my two friends.
The low lying sun is going to be a BIG problem!
I said goodbye to my friends.
I started the first afternoon shift of the week.
Oh dear,
One blue Jar with a woman driving, didn't stop at all and done a limbo dance right under my lowered stick!
Another car went open, and I could have tapped their car ariel they were were that close going under my stick.
More fun of cars on the otherside of the road not stopping either!
I am glad I finished in one piece!
Hometime
Back home.
Covers up Sexy Beast.
(It's going down to -3c tonight)
Puts the kettle on.
But first, time to get a little warm.
A quick play with Henry helped!
Much needed Brew!
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done,
Time for a bit of Meat Stir Fry!
Afterwards a look in today's newspaper.
Chris Montez (born Ezekiel  MontaΓ±ez)  is an American guitarist and vocalist, whose stylistic approach has ranged from rock & roll to pop standards and Latin music. His rock sound is exemplified in songs such as his 1962 hit "Let's Dance", which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. When his early music's popularity began to fade, he switched to a more traditional role as a popular singer of soft ballads, scoring hits with “The More I See You” and “Call Me" in 1966. He has also recorded in Latin styles. Over the intervening years, he has continued to work in all three modes. 
He is 79 years old 🎈 
Windsor Davies  was a British actor. He is best remembered for playing Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum (1974–1981) over its entire run. The show's popularity resulted in Davies and his co-star Don Estelle achieving a UK number one hit with a version of "Whispering Grass" in 1975. He later starred with Donald Sinden in Never the Twain (1981–1991), and his deep Welsh-accented voice was heard extensively in advertising voice-overs. 
He sadly died on this day in 2019 aged 88.
Barry Manilow was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with the song, 'I Write The Songs' in 1976
UK No.1 on this day in 1983:

"Good Morning, Vietnam" was the #1 movie at the box office today in 1988. It was the first of 9 straight weeks on top. 
I had a nice hot shower.
Followed by a cup of Sleep Tea.
At least hubby won his 2 snooker matches \o/
His team won 4-1 \o/
Once the heating went off,
I kept the bed warm on his winning return.

The Anger Monkey is Back!

He has love bites on his mirror - Kathy Lette
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’₯
I got up soon as the alarm went off to have a nice hot shower.
The thermal vest went on.
I had a warm hug before breakfast and brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I left the house.
I still wore 2 hats and only one glove.
I put on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
I had a chat with one of the mums I cross over before I started.
She told me her dad died yesterday, she was hoping to see him this weekend. I told her I was sorry to hear that.
I stuck my stick out to cross her over the road, when a truck failed to stop and my stick nearly tapped the top of his truck!
I chattered to someone else while waiting for someone to cross over.
I told him to sad news of a lovely postman
(who whenever I bumped to, alway a good chat with) that passed away at the weekend :(
He told me some sad news as well.
One man who lives in his road, is too ill to have a operation, one of his friend's husband had a mini stroke, and another friend he works with has throat cancer.
I stopped Mr Speedy for a second time this week.
As it was getting light, I noticed something over the road, on top of the roof of the old Youth Club.
A Bike with no saddle!
I finished in one piece.
I collected my newspaper, and went to collect my DPD parcel.
As normal the DPD driver doesn't want to deliver to my house. So I rerouted it to Hughes.
Got back home.
Coffee machine went on.
As did the washing machine and tumble drier.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
I tried again to get my son's second jab booked in on the NHS website.
I got him booked in for next week.
Woo hoo :) 
I waiting on the picture frame for my son's completed jigsaw.
It arrived, I passed his the parcel.
Then it all kicked off!
The picture frame was a bit too small for the jigsaw puzzle.
Lots of banging about.
Son came downstairs, trying to find a plaster as he cut his finger trying to fit the jigsaw to the picture frame!
All the things out of the First Aid cupboard was all the over the kitchen!
More banging about, then the front door went bang and off to school he went without a kiss or a goodbye.
My other son came back from school five minutes later, and he tried to shout to his brother, but his brother ignored him and stomped off to school.
I went upstairs to find the jigsaw puzzle.
Picture Frame but no jigsaw.
Just about sums it up↑↑↑↑
Finished the blog post.
Now for lunch.
Now what's behind the Advent Calender Door?
Now for round 2...
I only wore winter hat and one glove.
I walked to put on my lights.
Then I met up with my two friends for a good rabbit....
Oh dear, the low lying sun is back!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start with the sun.
I had a group of parents and children to cross over when a car just went straight under my stick.
Then my stick went "BOING"
Pretended to hit the car roof.
Everyone found that funny.
Later on a RED BMW was speeding well fast up the road, when my stick came out and lowered it.
He had to brake really fast or I would have tap and cracked his windscreen!
Soon  after that, it was Hometime for me.
Glad I got finished in time with those dark clouds coming over!
Time for a brew.
 Son had calmed down when he got back.
He had put the jigsaw back in the box and attempting another one this weekend↓↓
He has his second Covid-19  jab on Saturday afternoon.
Peeled the spuds for tonight's tea.
Had a good yak with my friend.
Stuffing went in, gravy made, vegetables put on.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet πŸ’‹.
Dished up tea.
Then carried on watching series 2 of:

Quick look in the newspaper.
Charlie Rich was an American country music singer, songwriter, and musician. His eclectic style of music was often difficult to classify, encompassing the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, soul, and gospel genres. In the later part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname the Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, "Behind Closed Doors" and "The Most Beautiful Girl," which topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles charts and earned
him two Grammy Awards. Rich was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2015
He would have been 89 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 62 in 1995. 
Frank Allen (born Francis McNeice,in Hayes, Middlesex, England) is an English bass guitarist who was a long-time member of The Searchers.
 Frank Allen played bass guitar with Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers and The Searchers (since 1964 when he replaced original bass guitarist Tony Jackson), and remained with them until they played their final gig in 2019. Allen joined Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers as rhythm guitarist in 1961, and changed over to bass guitar in early 1962, following the departure of Ben Jordan.
When Tony Jackson left the Searchers in August 1964 after a string of hits (including "Sweets for My Sweet", "Sugar and Spice" and "Needles and Pins"), Allen was asked to join the group. They then recorded "When You Walk in the Room", with Mike Pender and Frank Allen singing a dual lead line.
Allen wrote a book of touring recollections called Travelling Man in 1999. His definitive and detailed biography of the Searchers entitled The Searchers And Me - A History of the Legendary Sixties Hitmakers was published in April 2009.
The Searchers retired the band in March 2019.
He is 78 years old 🎈
