The Red Rim Has Steel Teeth!

Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps - Emo Philips
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Up early to do the Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew.
On goes the Thermal vest, as well as lots of layers.
Now to get out of the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes the winter coat, 2 winter hats, and winter gloves.
I gets the newspaper.
Now to get my big stick.
I goes and puts on the my lights.
The traffic lights have finally gone \o/
The moon is still out!
Now let's go to work 🍭
I had a few late brakers.
The blue mini driver which called me an "Arsehole" last year. Did what she normally does, and fails to stop, and goes underneath my big stick.
However, the red rim around my stick is wearing out and suddenly is showing steel teeth!
As she drove past my raised stick,
The steel teeth scraped her paintwork as she went past!
It was witnessed by several parents.
Still had to give out a few more BOINGs.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Back home I go.
Coffee machine was put on.
Dishwasher put on.
Carrying on with some housework.....
But first time for a coffee!
Housework done up to lunchtime!
Liquid lunch.
No soup, just sandwiches↓
Now back out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the winter coat, 2 hats and winter gloves.
One of my friends was here already to meet me.
So we go and put on my lights.
Collect my big stick and wait in the square for my other friend. 
That low lying sun is a worry.
I told my friend about the encounter with the blue mini this morning.
He said,"If it comes up this afternoon, you can get the other side and she will have matching lines on each side!"
My other friend and we all had a good rabbit!
I said goodbye to friends.
The low lying sun in causing problems.
I gave out 4 BOINGs straight away as they drove under my big stick.
Few last minute brakers as well.
At least I finished in one piece!
Home time.
In need of brew.
I caught up with some blog posts.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served up.

Now to look into today's newspaper.

The Last One Of 2022!

 “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph.” — Shirley Temple
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
We got up early, it still being cold, 
We did today Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Thermal vest and layers went on.
Now to uncover the Sexy Beast. 
Still freezing cold!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋💋
Trying to park Sexy Beast was fun.
The normal car park wasn't open, there was one parking space left in the car park opposite. One car was trying to reverse out, so I did a 3 point turn to let her out, so then I went back up the road and did another 3 point turn to come back down the road, however she parked on the side of the road with her back door of the her car open and I couldn't get past it!
She begrudgingly shut the back door for me to past!
I parked up, got on my Winter coat, gloves and two hats and went to get my newspaper!
Comes back and the gates to the car park are open.
Moves Sexy Beast into the car park. 
I picks up my big stick and goes and turns on my lights.
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get to work...
Here we go again.
The first child I tried to cross the road, the car drove straight under my stick.
Boing for him.
The following van tried to tell me with his hands for me to take my big stick out of the way of his van!
Boing he had for that as well.
Lots of tanks as well!
On a postive note, I was given lots of presents, cards and kind words.
Lots of last minute braking to cope with!
At least I finshed in one piece!
Back to Sexy Beast I go. 
Back home I go.
The coffee machine has given up the ghost :(
Back to normal coffee for now :(
Soup maker goes on.
I write one blog post up until the light lunch.
Now to do the last day of work!
On goes the Winter coat, winter gloves and two hats.
Oh dear, we have the low lying sun back again.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with one friend. My other friend arrived 10 minutes later.
Rabbit time.
I wished my friends a Happy Christmas and Happy New Year.
Now to survive the low lying sun.
Told one parent to be careful not fall over the bag of presents that was at the top of the stairs.
They said, "I was special!"
One white car just drove under my stick at 5 m.p.h!
One BMW driver on the otherside just looked at me as it drove straight under my stick!
One nice parent gave me a present and thanked me for doing a good job :)
I wished the parents and children a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!
Finished in one piece.
Goes back to Sexy Beast. 
For the last time 2022.
Back home.
Now to sort out my presents.
I put them with my other presents that need to be wrapped up.
Time for a brew.

I had my breakfast and brew for one:

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!

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!
