One Flash Too Many!

 Television is a weapon of mass distraction - Larry Gelbart
Welcome to my Thursday 👍
Brew with a much needed hug.
It looked pretty cloudy...
Rain is on the way....
I gave hubby a wet sloppy 💋 before I left.
I hoped it was just going to be cloudy.
On goes the summer coat.
Tree Pic.
I put on my lights, now for the fun to start.
The traffic was moving until the Flower lorry.
Some cars are the otherside weren't stopping anytime soon!
At least I finished in one piece!
The rain held off as well!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee maker.
Then I had a nice cold shower!
Now to enjoy the coffee...
I got all my Prima Makes magazines out...
I however am missing issue 11.
Finally found on and won it!
One Ebayer was getting a bit greedy.
I put a offer of £2 for her magazine.
She fired back another offer of £3, saying £2 was too low (even though she put the starting bid of £2)
and she has 3 other watchers.
Fine, let them have it.
I am watching it to see if it goes for £2 or it doesn't sell! 
I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Now for lunch!
Now out for part two.
There was no rain when I left my house, half way to my job it came down.
Parks up Sexy Beast and it stopped. 
I go down to look into the Charity Shop before I start.
Picked up a great film for 50p!
Brilliant film!
Now to do up the coat and getting ready for round 2.
I was right hot under the collar for the first 20 minutes.
Then the rain came down and cooled me right down!
I had the normal car drivers that don't understand the word STOP!
Finished for today!
Once I got back to Sexy Beast,  my friend appeared with his dog.
After 50 minutes of chatting, I said Goodbye.
On the way home, I was followed by a small black van, when I nearly reached home.
I signalled to turn right, a skip lorry was at the junction I was turning into,he was waiting to turn right(out of the junction).
As I come up to the lorry, the driver suddenly slammed on his brakes.I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the Black van was flashing at the lorry to go, but I was in the way!I turned right, then the lorry himself turned right and the black van was sat there waiting to get into the road!
One lucky escape! 
The rain started again!
Now to put the food in the oven for tea.
I finished watching I survived 9/11 again, I missed some bits the first time round.
I gave hubby a big sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Tea was ready!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Having A Really Good Look!

A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life - Robertson Davis
Welcome to my Monday 👯
I am still not be avaliable to mount the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 just yet :(
Hey ho let's keep calm and carry on!
Brew with warm hug.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he left for work.
One son also had a sloppy one before he left for school.
I had to test the knee once more....
Gets the cards off my neighbour to be posted.
(Has a good chat in the process).
I decides to wear my Batman facemask today.
Picks up newspaper first.
Traffic lights outside the Post Office and no where to park either didn't help.
Goes and collects my click and collect order from ASDA.
Says "Thank you." to the staff member bringing out my order.
(In that order is some Christmas presents that need hiding when I get back)
Tries again to post these cards for my neighbour. Finally gets a parking space.
Big big queue in the Post Office.
2 metres distance and everyone wearing the blue disposable masks....
I am wearing my Batman face mask.
Two people in the queue gave up waiting.
One man kept turning round and looking at me!
Everytime he looks, I give him the stare!
If he wanted a photo, he only had to ask!
By the time I got to the front of the queue, I was guided somewhere else to get these cards posted. There was a queue of people behind me waiting to pay for their newspapers.
I was glad to get out of there! 
Gets home.
Hides presents.
Gives my neighbour his change.
Now for coffee!
