Puts my lights on.

I hope it gets better for the afternoon shift!
Finished in one piece.
Back home to pick up hubby.
Going out for coffee.

Then off to the Charity Shop for bargains.
Their card machine isn't working, so it's a good luck I had some cash on me.
Found some pictures that will be useful to put in my late father-in-law's house.
I chatted with the postman who was delivering on my old walk(I used to do).
Good half an hour of chat.
Then it was back home.
They have found me! 
AAAAHHHHHHH!
We had a sandwich for lunch.
Hubby was going shopping with younger son while I do my afternoon shift.
Gave him a sloppy wet one.
Summer coat and summer hat time!
I turned on my lights.
Now it's rabbit time with my friends.
We enjoyed ourselves in the sun shine.
When  it was time to say goodbye,
Wished them a good Bank Holiday Weekend.
Frantic Friday, cars backing up, cars not stopping.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Hometime.
Hubby had picked up two items I go off the internet.
After putting the shopping away.
Hubby went with younger son, collected the Dining room table and chairs and dropped it all round at his Father-in laws house ready for the big tidy up over the weekend.
While brushing the pavement...
The screws are back again!
I hope Karma bites them on the arse for dropping them about!
