Having Cake & Eating It In One!

 I used to be Snow White, but I drifted - Mae West
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Warm Hug Time \o/
Breakfast with brew.
Thermal vest goes on.
Furry leggings also goes on!
+
Lots of layers.
Time to go outside...
Uncovers Sexy Beast.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
2 winter hats and big big gloves.
I puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
The cars over the otherside of the road, seem to have a problem with seeing me, even though I have a big lumo coat and a big stick which says "Stop"!
Few BOINGs given out as well!
Finished in one piece!
I got changed and nipped into the local Bakery got some big cakes to take with me to a Coffee and Yak visit.
It was sad news about Meatloaf :(
Nipped home.
Back out to get the newspaper on the way.
I sang along with a Meatloaf song on the way:
Does a lot of yak, and coffee when I got to my friends.
She said, "It would take two servings to eat the big Eccles cake."
"I ate mine in one serving," and gave her my empty plate :)
(Come March 1st, Lent starts, no cake or chocolate for nearly 6 weeks!)
Good job my 50th Birthday is in the week before!
 I enjoyed the chat,cake and coffee!
I wished her a good weekend when I left. 
Some bad driving from other car drivers on the way home. I kept my distance!
It is still freezing cold...
Time for more coffee and some hot soup!
It's cloudy, so no need for my big big sunglasses.
Now out for the final one of the week.
I still put on my 2 winter hats and winter gloves.
I turned on my lights.
My two friends turned up and we had our normal rabbit!
My friend got confused and said:
"See you tomorrow!"
"No, you have two days off from me!
See you on Monday, have a good weekend!"
I replied.
Once I started my final shift, then the fun started.
Lots of last minute braking, and no stopping from the traffic on the otherside.
It doesn't help when they stop in the Keep Clear space either!
Finished in one piece!
Hometime.
Back home.
I covered up Sexy Beast.
Cup of Brew time.
The fish and fish fingers went on in the oven.
Son brought down his Air Fryer down to put the chips in.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 😘
Time to dish up the tea.
We watched a bit of "Sounds of the 70s"
Hubby went food shopping with younger son.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Comedy legend, Benny Hill, was born in Southampton. His song Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West), was the 1971 Christmas UK No 1. His once hugely popular TV comedy show is no longer repeated in the UK, as it’s now viewed as politically incorrect.
He would have been 98 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 68 in 1992.
John  Ryan , best known by his stage name, Jack Lord, was an American television, film and Broadway actor, director and producer. He starred as Steve McGarrett in the CBS television program Hawaii Five-O, which ran from 1968 to 1980.
He died on this day in 1998 aged 77.
Norma  Egstrom , known professionally as Peggy Lee, was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer, and actress, over a career spanning seven decades. From her beginning as a vocalist on local radio to singing with Benny Goodman's big band, Lee created a sophisticated persona, writing music for films, acting, and recording conceptual record albums combining poetry and music.
Lee recorded over 1,100 masters and composed over 270 songs. 
She sadly died aged 81 in 2002. 
UK No.1 on this day in 1966:
 The Spencer Davis Group - Keep on Running
The soundtrack to the movie 'The Graduate' was released on this day in 1968.
On this date in 1983 Eurythmics released their hit single "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
Uk.1 in the UK in 1986:
A-ha - "The Sun Always Shines On TV"
"Two Hearts" by Phil Collins was the #1 song on the Billboard charts today in 1989. It was the first of two straight weeks on top.
They came back with all of the shopping.
I helped put the shopping away.
We watched the programme on Meatloaf.
Meatloaf: In & Out Hell.
Since the release of the Bat Out of Hell album, Meat Loaf has possessed the kind of international status that few artists obtain. His larger-than-life persona and performances are fuelled by a passion for theatre and storytelling. This candid profile reveals the man and his music through his own testimony and from the accounts of those closest to him.
Time for Sleep Tea.
Making the most of the Friday Feeling 🎈in bed.

Oh Yeah, I Am Trained To Use The Stick!

If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well - Proverb
Welcome to my Hump Of the Week 🐫
Warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Opens the curtains...
Sunshine is coming back \o/
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
It was still a bit cold to put the summer coat back on.
The big big sunglasses went back on.
I put on my lights on.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
Car drivers were going under my stick once it was raised up.
As soon as I dropped it down, they soon stopped.
The otherside of the road just as bad!
As least the sun is out!
I finished in one piece.
I chatting to a man who waves at me every morning.
His son got killed down Alcester Rd, On New Years's Eve in the late 1980's
(The other main road, which is far more busy than the road I do my lollypop job).
He was trying to cross the road, when he was hit at 70 m.p.h by a stolen black Ford Escort Xr3i.
The stolen car was later found burnt out.
He died after 11 days in hospital.
The Police got a lucky break, when they stopped another stolen black Ford Escort Xr3i. They got one of four teenagers that was in the car.
(The other 3 ran off)
The teenager admitted being in the car (In hit and run), and named the other 3 teenagers.
The driver of the car only got 2 and 1/2 years for killing the man in the hit and run. 
That is why there is a Pedestrian Refuge Island there now.
I use my Pedestrian Refuge Island to cross people over.
I learnt it was put there as someone was killed crossing over the road!
After the man stopped talking,
I said his late son had the same first name as my husband, and his late wife shared my first name too.
I said if he ever wants to have a chat, he knows where I am.
Then off to the Co-op to get some supplies!
Then picked up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
Back home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Then I go around to see my neighbour with his magazine.
Has chat for a half an hour.
I got back and my coffee was ready!
My large sewing bag arrived!
The embroidery machine is in the poker dot bag.
Overlocker machine is in the grey bag.
The red and blue bag holds my sewing machine.
What is so strange, I have no power lead for the overlocker, and still can't find the power lead that came with the sewing machine either!
(Good job I bought a replacement one!)
I ran out of time to write yesterday's blog post and hop onto my spin bike either :(
Lunchtime arrives....
At last the sun comes out!
On goes my summer coat!
I put on my lights, and I chat with my two friends before I start my shift!
Now for the fun to start....🍭
Car drivers were again not stopping until I lowered my stick.
I had a man on my right watchng what I was doing.
One parent I crossed over, said to me..
"What a day I have had!"
"Time for a massage,"I replied to him
"Fat chance of that happening!" He laughed.
One car driver found his brakes just in time after I lowered my stick.
The passenger in the car was banging her gums when she went past.
The man that was watching me, asked me:
"Is that in your training? To do that with your stick?"
"Yes, and my four moves are in the Highway Code!" I replied.
He didn't answer that to that, and walked off.
I finished in one piece.
Now to get back home.
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to get down and write yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back and a warm hug and a sloppy wet 😘.
Tea was served.
Once blog post was published.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Sleep tea time.
Early night needed....πŸ›
