What Did The Chicken Do?

Pass me my teeth, and I'll bite you - George Burns
Welcome to my Thursday 🐦
Nice big hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on,
As well as the layers.
Then it's time to uncover Sexy Beast. 
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I leave.
I still put on my 2 hats with my big big gloves.
Once I put on my lights.
Let's go to work 🍭
Oh dear, here we go again!
Lots of Limbo drivers, my side and the otherside.
Done about 5 BOINGS this morning.
One silver Skoda driver, always waves to me in the morning. He actually stopped for me.
I got back to the pavement, two children were waiting to crossing, I raised my stick.
He thought sod this, put his toe on the peddle and outta there he went!
Good job the car behind didn't move so I could cross them over instead!
I survived!
I collected the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine went on.
I mopped the kitchen floor.
(I thought it won't take too long!)
While it dried.
I had my coffee.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Once I finished.
I checked the kitchen floor.
Still not dry :(
Oh well, I need to have my lunch.
In went my soup in the microwave,
&
another cup of coffee.
Nice and warm for the mouth!
Now for part two!
Change of leggings needed first.
(Too warm for the woolly ones)
The big big sunglasses had to go on.
Driving up the High Street.
A white van parked outside the Charity shop didn't help with the low lying sun. I was going only 5 m.p.h. Two women just walked in front of me,just past the van, I suddenly stopped.
They just looked and kept carrying on. A Range Rover tried and failed to push me out of the way as I carried on up the road!
Once I parked Sexy Beast.
Time to get the winter coat.....
Four times I tried to get the zip done up.
Fifth time, I did it!
The wind blew over my lollipop stick.
I had to undo the zip of my coat to pick it up off the floor!
Not going to be my afternoon!
I went to turn on my lights.
First I chattered with my friend and her mum.
Then my other friend arrived with his dog.
Quick rabbit, like you do.
Going to be fun with that low lying sun!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for part two of 🍭
Cars weren't stopping again.
I even stuck my lollipop right out in front of me, the small blue car drove straight under it, my stick nearly took out their car ariel, it was that low!
I just rolled my eyes, and carried on!
Home Time for me.
Back home.
Now for a much needed brew!
Then I put the tea in the oven to cook.
While watching the news, it was reporting on the death of Barry Cryer.
One of his jokes was read out on the news.
I couldn't stop laughing.

A man owns a parrot that can't stop swearing.
So he says to him, 'If you don't stop swearing, I'll put you in the fridge.'
The parrot keeps on swearing. So he puts it in the fridge.
Five minutes later, he takes the parrot out of the fridge, and says to it, 'Are you going to stop swearing?'
'Yes,' says the parrot. 'But what did that chicken do?'
Another one I found, why I also laughed at:
 
A woman walks past a petshop and sees a magnificent parrot in the window.
She rushes inside and says, 'How much for the parrot?'
'£5,' says the shopkeeper.
'Only £5? I've got to have it,' says the woman. 'Why's it so cheap?'
'Well, I must confess, it was brought up in a brothel,' said the shopkeeper. 'And, to put it politely, it has quite an extensive vocabulary.'
'Never mind,' says the woman. 'At that price, I'll take it.'
So she takes the parrot home, puts its cage in the living room and takes the cover off.
'New place - very nice,' says the parrot.
Then the woman's two daughters walk in.
'New place, new girls - very nice,' says the parrot.
Then the woman's husband walks in, and the parrot says, 'Oh hello, Keith!'
Hubby comes back, and has a nice wet sloppy πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
Yum!

"Are You Going To Have A Certificate For That???"

 The first rule of business is: do other men for they would do you - 
Charles Dickens
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Get's kids up for school.
Then I pass about those wet sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ to everyone.
Now to leave the house...
It was just cloudy.
No need for the big sunglasses so far...
I still put on my summer coat.
Tree Pic.
While I was waiting to put on my lights.
The lambo went past \o/
I got chatting to one of my old customers from the days of delivering his mail.
Now for the fun of Hump Day!
One while car failed to stop on the otherside of the road, I nearly clipped her windscreen.
She just looked back at me as she went past!
Once the bus stopped to drop off its passengers, a red sporty car overtook the bus, and had to slam its brakes on as I was in the middle of the road, crossing people over.
I heard the engine being revved up behind me!
People had to test the brakes coming up the road, as I was in the middle of the road!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I gets home and forgets to get the newspaper and magazine.
Out and again gets it.
Then I got on with preparing the chicken casserole for tonight....
That was put in the oven for later.
Much needed coffee now.
I wrote 2 blog posts up to dinner time.
Now for a light lunch!
I had my wage slip from my Cleaning job.
Surprise, Surprise, no tax refunded from last month, and they even took £14 tax this month!
(I don't earn enough to pay tax!)
Phone call to the tax office tomorrow I think!
Back out to do the afternoon stint..
I managed to find a space near my Lollipop space.
The zip on my bum bag broke!
Great
I hope this afternoon is going to be lot better than this morning....
I lowered my lollipop stick down.
One BMW had 2 options,
Go or lose windscreen.
It was eye to eye contact when he stopped short of having his windscreen cracked!
One car stopped in the Keep Clear space, so I stood in front of her!
I was glad to get finished! 
While I was chatting to my friend, the lock keyring broke off my car keys....
Great! 
I said goodbye to my friend and back home I went.
Coffee and cupcake my son made at school.

Back out with some 60s tunes to singalong with:
I have white Land Rover following me,
trying to make me go faster than I should.
I take it, he doesn't like to do under 50mph?
I gets into work.
Fixes the hose to the vacuum cleaner.
Empty the bag and add a new bag.
Gives the filter a clean.
Adds it to the skip.
Gets 26 toilets cleaned.
Now to hoover 4 flights of stairs from top to bottom...
Finished off by using my blue mop to mop the floor at the bottom.
I was left a message in the Cleaning Comments book, "I need to see how much Toilet Cleaner you are using in the toilet!"
I wrote my reply:"Looking forward to it, Alas I won't be here much longer :("
One of the other cleaners replied to the comment on how much needs to go in the toilet:
"Are you going to have a certificate afterwards?"
Back to singing on the way home:
Gets home.
The casserole looked nice when it came out of the oven.
It didn't even touch the sides it was that nice!
Quick look in the today's newspaper.
