Welcome to my Thursday πŸŽͺ
Another good night's sleep I had ;)
Heardle Time.
 Heardle 60s:
My answers:
I had my breakfast and brew for one:
I took a test before breakfast.
The results was:
Thank god!
Dressed.
It started to rain when I left the house!
No sloppy wet one for hubby.
(He has Covid!)
I get on my Winter coat and gets the newspaper.
On goes the Winter waterproof gloves and winter hat.
I turn on my lights.
I wait uncover to start as it is still raining.
I still have the normal BOINGS to give out to the cars and vans on the opposite side of the road!
Then we have vans parking opposite me on double yellow lines!
One van drove off, turned around in the side road, parked up for further up the road to get his mate in the van, however as his friend got in, the van driver drove off with the passenger door still open!
Another van parked there again!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Instead of the Co-op, I visited Aldi instead.
Some lovely things in there!
While I was waiting for my things to be scanned.The woman in front of me, bought back a gammon joint, which had gone off,
(It was still in date, and she had the receipt)
A member of staff called Jack, had to get rid of it!
Paid for my food, loaded it up in Sexy Beast, and off home I went. 
My coffee machine went on.
Hubby was still feeling crap.
Put the shopping away.
Time for coffee!
My late father's in law's house is now up for sale.
All that hard work, I did to make the house to look good!
Light lunch
The sun has returned!
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits in the square for my friends.
They both come.
Rabbit time!
It was time to do job.
I said goodbye to them.
Right let's do it!
Oh dear, my big stick isn't big enough to get those cars on the opposite side of the road from stopping! I think the button labelled invisible, has got stuck, as people are just not seeing me!
Few BOINGs given out!
Finished in one piece.
Now home I go.
In need of a cup of brew!
I get on with making tonight's tea.
Everyone is home.
Older son is not at his night job.
Pork Chops with stuffing and Veggies.
Yum!
