Welcome to the Friday Feeling🎈
 The sun is back \o/

 We had breakfast.
Now off for a little walk↓

 Back home.

I gives hubby a sloppy πŸ’‹ as he goes off to work.
I meanwhile have a look in the newspaper↓

Followed by light lunch↓
 Then I was back on sorting out all my old an new characters for my new book↓
After an hour, I was all set to start writing.
I sent my kids out for there 20 minute walk up and down the road.
They were just coming back, when the police stopped them and asked what they were doing.
"Exercise," replied one son.
"Do you live in the same house," he was asked.
"He is my brother,and we live in that house," Replied my son pointing to our house.
"Keep safe," the policeman replied and drove off. 
Out for a bit of air and they get stopped. 
I carry on writing a chapter of my book.
My youngest son says;
"Is that all you wrote!" 
I leave the book alone and get on with the tea.
Gives hubby a big hug when he comes home.
Tea is served↓
  Then off to work I go with some great tunes↓

 When I left to go on the Lollipop shift was light raining....
One black Range Rover
  stopped for me, then changed her mind, and carried on under my lollipop stick, then just stopped a few yards later to look in her mirror at me!
She could probably hear my eye roll from the comfort of her car seat! 
 The rain started to come down!
I finished in one piece.
Then the sun came out!
I gets home,
Gets changed.
Off to the Happy Place of Work.
