The Yellow Peril Returns!

 The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
I was so stiff from sleeping on the sofa last night.
I woken up by sleeping beauty....
While he was making breakfast, I got dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Time for...
We did all the Heardles...
My favourite was Heardle 60s...
Now to leave house for job...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I fetched the newspaper and next door's neighbour's magazine.
It was going to rain, 
On goes the winter coat, with summer hat and no gloves.
I turn on my lights...
Let's hope the car drivers are gentle with me after the last few days I have had!
No chance!
One car went straight under my big stick, and was inches away from his windscreen.
I was in the middle of the road, and the Learner left it a bit too late too brake.
An emergency stop was done, inches away from  me!
Many of parents were glad to see me back.
They asked how the funeral went.
I told them what went on, and they couldn't believe it.
"I won't be seeing them again anytime soon \o/" 
I said.
Then a BMW driver tried her luck!
My big stick was out in front,
Windscreen or stop
Emergency stop at the last minute.
I safely got back to the pavement.
The rain was carrying on.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Goes back out...
Coffee Date.
I chats with the current postman to find out what's happening with the repick.
The whole office has had a repick, all depends on how long you have been there.
I would have been there for 32 years....
Now for coffee!
My friend joined for a good yak!
Another coffee and nibble.
Yum Yum.
Enjoyed the chat, coffee and nibbles.
Now back home.
Didn't feel like soup.
Turkey and Mustard sandwich.
Now out for part 2 of the day.
Various weather reports say either cloudy or rain.
I got out my summer coat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits for my friends to arrive. 
My friends appear.
Time for a rabbit...
Wished them a good weekend.
Now to do the final shift of the week.
Oh dear back to it again.
Nearly clipped a windscreen as it went under my big stick.
One man is a red car went under the stick.
I did the BOING, he turned into the side road.
Kept shouting at me!
I crossed more kids over the road.
He then came back for another go at me.
He parked on double yellow lines and delivered two bags of food at the house opposite me.
He kept shouting at me, I ignored him and carried on doing my job.
After that fun episode, nothing else happened.
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
In need of a brew!
Now to get the blog updated.
Wrote about yesterday.
Now to put the blog back on!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one when he comes home.
He does the tea....
Tea is done.
Yum!
Looked into today's newspaper.

Bad Tuesday Again!

Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Tuesday 💦
Nice big hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with breakfast.
We did all the Heardles.
No need for the Thermal vest \o/
Hoping nothing is going to happen today.
As it normally does on a Tuesday!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
I goes and gets the newspaper first.
I slips into the Summer Coat and hat.
With big big sunglasses.
  
I puts on my lights.
Now off to work I go....
Some on the otherside were not STOPPING, my stick is not quite long enough to tap their windscreen!
Talked to some of the parents.
They hoped tomorrow would go alright.
Finished in one piece.
It's getting warm.
Gets home.
The coffee machine goes on.
I change into a tee-shirt.
All the windows are opened.
Now to wait for the council to do some repairs.
Coffee time.
 The bread maker and soup maker goes on.
Caught up with some blogging.
The council man comes and as he turns off the water under the sink.
The container under the pipe to the washing machine is full of water.
The pipe is leaking again for the second time in 9 months.
Once the council man did the repair, I thanked him for doing it.
Gets onto the place where I bought the washing machine.Fobbed off and said I have to phone Bosch now.
Before I did, now for some light lunch.
Off to do round 2.
I put on my summer coat and walked to put on my lights. On the way to get a cold lollypop, I bump into someone I chat to in the morning.
He was having a bad Tuesday, he doesn't like Tuesdays. I told him I was having a bad Tuesday.
We now have 2 members of the Bad Tuesday Club.
Off to get a ice cold lolly!
Only one friend turns up, as my other friend was running late.
Time for a little rabbit...
When it was time to start.
My friend then goes off home.
Cars were stopping myside, 
The other side, they were stopping in the Keep Clear space..
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Nice cold lolly to cool down.
Carried on writing my blog.
Phoned up Bosch.
Because I work weekdays, I would have preferred a Saturday for the engineer to come out.
Nothing for 3 months.
Handwashing for 3 months then I said.
Someone is coming out next week.
Great.
Gets on with the tea.
Hubby has a sloppy wet one when he comes back.

Getting Into The Monday Mood!

Never argue with a fool, People might not know the difference - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug.
We did all the Heardle's, 60s,70s,80s,90s, Heardle, Movie and Poster.
Time for brew and breakfast.
No need for the Thermal vest.
It was forecasting rain...
I took my rain mac just in case.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I bought the newspaper.
It was due rain during my shift.
So I put on my winter coat.
While I waiting to put on my lights.
Typicial Monday Morning again.
Someone in a white Skoda was trying its luck pulling out in front of traffic, he had to just sit there and wait!
Puts on my lights.
Let's hope I have a better week that last week!
The rain clouds disappeared.
It was getting warm in that winter coat of mine!
Few cars had to be given the BOING!
I told a few of parents, I wasn't going to be here on Wednesday.
They hoped he will have a good send off!
I finished in one piece.
Glad to get out of the winter coat.
Home Time.
Coffee machine goes on.
Loads up the dishwasher.
Sorts out all the washing I did yesterday, into piles onto our bed.
Now for coffee.
I left it too late to put the soup maker on .
Oh well, let it be sandwiches...
Soup is back on the menu tomorrow!
It was forecasting thunder, lightening and rain for this afternoon.
We shall see!
Sorted out my friend's card and present.
Out for part 2.
I took the lining out of my winter coat.
So I won't sweat too much!
I had chat with some ladies who was having a break from class they were doing in the hall.
They couldn't believe I had so many car drivers not stopping.
I go and turn on my lights.
I have a chat with my friend with his dog.
His wife is having a hip op on Wednesday.
I wished her good luck with it.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
All friends are reunited for a good rabbit.
Then it was time to say goodbye all.
One friend went to work, the other friend went down to the Charity Shop.
I started my shift.
Car Drivers on the otherside are not stopping again.
If I had a bigger stick, I could reach their car roof.
My friend came back from visiting the charity shop with 3 DVDS and one CD.
One of the DVDs was...
Big Film!
I said, "See you later alligator!" to him.
I may have took the lining out of my winter coat, but no rain appeared, and once I finished, I soon ripped it off!
Back home.
Cup of brew needed.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby had a sloppy wet one when he came home.
