Clear & Present Danger!

 Most people like hard work, particulary when they're paying for it - Elbert Hubbard
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
It was nice to have a warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Four layers were added, as I opened the toilet window!
No such thing of wearing just a t-shirt to work early in the morning anymore!
I had asked hubby to refix the bathroom light to the ceiling, over the weekend. 
(As it fell down after the loft boarding had been fitted.)
I was getting ready to leave, when I heard a band and crash from the bathroom...
The ceiling light didn't stop up for long!
Second bathroom light has smashed in company of my hubby in over 12 months!
It's a good job Screwfix had another one in.
I ordered a new one and will pick it up later on.
Running late now.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
I had four layers on under my Summer Coat.
Winter hat and gloves.
The only thing I forgot was the Big Big Sunglasses :(
I put on my lights..
Now for the fun to start...🍭
I was chatting to someone about snow being forecasted for next month. He said it normally comes in February.
I rolled my eyes and said,"February is my 50th Birthday month, and I'm dreading it!"
"Nothing to worry to about, I'm 58 and don't feel it!"He laughed.
"You don't look like a day over 55!" I replied.
"Thanks, now I'm going to my office to have a hot chocolate!" He laughed, and carried on walking.
I could tell I was going to have a bad shift.
Cars were going straight under my stick and not stopping.
It got even worst when cars were stopping in the Keep Clear Space.
How I supposed to get pushchairs through?
One car driver had to reverse so I could get people with pushchairs through!
In the end I lowered the stick, one mini had to stop, and I heard another mini on the otherside speeding up the road, the lollystick was stretched over the otherside of the road.
That mini soon stopped as well! 
An American driving a red Land Rover, asked me, "Where the Village Hall was?" 
"Behind you, and you can park your car in there too."I pointed to the village hall
They are doing to Covid Boosters every Monday in the Village Hall.
I was glad to have survived that shift!
The traffic lights were still at the bottom of the road.
I went another way to Screw Fix.
I collected another Bathroom Light.
Then got the newspaper.
Back home...
I put on the coffee machine.
Dragged the spin bike into the Living Room.
Warmed up.
Put on Netflix.
A good 30 minute spin session.
Finished watched Django Unchained.
Cooled down.
Now for some coffee!
Now to write Saturday and Sunday's blog posts.
All the way up to dinnertime.
I remembered my big big sunglasses this time.
On the way to putting on my lights, I was chatting to a good friend's son who needed to chat to someone! I said goodbye to him, moved on to chat to the woman who gives me a lots of free plants and vice versa. Puts on my lights and walk down to chat with my friend and her mum.
My other friend arrived with his dog to join in with the conversation.
This song appeared in my head...
Said goodbye to my friends.
My friend with his dog saw for himself how bad the traffic was getting.
Some car drivers were asking for directing for the Village Hall. I pointed it to it.
Three car drivers didn't read no entrance on the gate and when straight through it!
A man with a white Husky came over to me to crossed over. My friend's dog tried to get it.
(Good job it had a muzzle on!!)
I crossed the man with Husky safely over.
I was getting no where stopping the traffic again.
The traffic lights were making the traffic back up to me, and still people were stopping in the Keep Clear space!
I lowered my stick, and the car had to find the brake pedal and stop!
I'm glad I survived that one!
I walked back to my car...
I was getting well warm!
Back home.
I got into my cupboard to look through all the cooking books...
I got so carried away, I forgot the time!
I soon got the meat-free Stir Fry on the go.
I been in contact with my local councillors to find out how to stop lorries parking over our drive.
It's either double yellow lines..
(Which I could get a parking ticket for going over the yellow lines and parking on my drive)
or a dropped kerb, which I would have to fund myself (£1000+)
I also had a email about the forecoming Council elections, and the Labour party wanting four more people to fill four vacant seats that are coming up next year.
I wasn't chosen last time and am not going to suffer the embarrassment of being turned down again! 
Now to look inside today's newspaper.
William Shatner

stars in "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" episode of CBS anthology series "The Twilight Zone" in 1963
At least hubby won his snooker game with his new Snooker cue \o/
Sleep Tea time
Now to keep the bed warm!
