Wet, Stormy Friday Feeling!

Except for the Flood, noting was ever as bad as reported 
- Edward Howe
Welcome to a Wet, Stormy Friday Feeling 🚩
Those sexy lumo trousers will be needed today,
with Storm Babet!
Breakfast and Brew
Sexy Lumo trousers went on.
Now to leave the house in the dark and rain.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
I told him to be careful going to work.
(He was dropping off younger son at work, as it was too bad for him to cycle to work)
On goes my winter coat, summer hat, waterproof boots and waterproof gloves.
I walk down to turn on my lights.
Collects my newspaper. Then I carry on walking to turn on my other lights.
I swap my newspaper for my big stick.
While I was waiting to walk over to my spot.
I watched something that was very bizarre.
There was a woman driving a white Audi in the car park opposite.
She reversed out of the car parking space,
Drove down the kerb, up the road. Stopped at the top of the road, then reversed her car into the village hall's gates.
She came back down into the car park opposite.
Got out and looked at the damage to the back of the car, then dragged out her child off to the nearby school!
It was time for me to walk over to my spot.
There was a bit of damage to her bumper of the Audi.
The rain was coming down really heavy.
However I was getting well warm in it.
One glove had to come off.
At least I was cooling down.
He's back parking on the double yellow lines,
fetching his coffee...
Hardly any kids I crossed over, as it looked like the parents were taking their kids in the car.
Finished in one piece.
I tried to go down one road, there was a big deep puddle, so I turned Sexy Beast around and went the only way back home in the rain.
Puddles getting bigger...
I put my winter coat in the tumble drier to dry out for the afternoon shift.
Now for a much needed coffee.
The heavy rain is causing problems getting around Redditch and into Studley.
I sorted out one of my cabinets with all my tinned food and pasta.
Hubby had tried to sort it out, and I couldn't find any thing....
Found loads of things and now we know what we have!
Liquid lunch time.
I told hubby at lunch time to come back a bit earlier as if he leaves it late, he won't be able to get back!
On goes those sexy lumo trousers..
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my winter coat and summer hat, with waterproof boots.
I turn on my lights and walk down to look in the Charity shop.
Have a good chat, wish the staff a good weekend.
I turn on my lights and head back to Sexy Beast to fetch my big stick.
Now to go for a rabbit in the square.
Those dark clouds are worrying...
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Then I started my shift.
I had some children crossed over,
some were picked up by their parents in the car.
One of the schools were closed early because of the toilets not working, and some children were picked up early by 2.30pm. 
Finished in one piece.
Now home I go.
I didn't go the normal way, as it was flooded.
Some nice bargains from the Charity Shop↓↓
One whistling Kettle for when we have no electric!
The picture frame came in useful as well!
I had a bulk delivery from Amazon to put away.
I had a discount code to use.
12 tins of chopped tomatoes
12 cartons of passata
That should keep me busy!
Unloaded and loaded up the dishwasher.
I put the tea on in the oven.
Hubby comes back a bit earlier.
He has a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
Looks into today's newspaper.
Now for some telly....
Really good!
Sleep Tea time.
We watched the news and newspaper review.
Roll on the weekend!

Get Back!

You can stop almost anything from functioning by hitting it with a large rock 
- Russell Bell
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈🎈
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to leave the house....
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Before I leave.
On goes my winter coat and summer hat.
(It was a bit nippy for my summer coat)
Big big sunglasses
I turn on my lights and now to fetch my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Let's go to work...🍭
At least the sun is shining 😎
There was one sly van parked on the double yellow lines opposite me for a short time.
No BOINGs given out this morning.
Lots of people to cross over.
Still cars not stopping over the otherside of the road!
Finished in one piece.
I went down to the Co-op to get my  newspaper.
Back home I go afterwards.
Coffee time.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
My Amazon order arrived↓↓
Woo hoo!
Liquid lunch...
I talked to hubby on his dinnerbreak.
It had stopped raining, but there was a big grey rain cloud over the house.
(It won't rain again, I thought, leaving my rain mac behind)
Off to do the final shift of the week.
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
I went and turned on my lights.
Met up with one of my friends and walked down to the Charity Shop.
Had a good yak in there .
Wished the staff a good weekend.
Turned on my other lights and went and got my big stick.
I went to the square for a good rabbit with the other 2 friends who came along.
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Just as I was about to start, the rain came down!
It's a good job I had my winter coat on!
There was lots of traffic to deal with.
Especially when car drivers stop in the Keep Clear space.
As I held my stick up the air to stop the traffic.
One small school child walked straight over the road before I had stopped the traffic!
"GET BACK ON THE PAVEMENT!!!" I shouted at her. She returned back to the pavement in silence.
When I stopped the traffic and walked in the middle of road, they all crossed over the road in silence!
Finished in one piece.
My other friend turned up for a quick ten minute rabbit!
I wished him a good weekend and went home.
Oh dear it is raining really heavily.
No rain mac.
Next best thing to put on head....
Lidl bag!
Time for a strong brew!
Finished writing a week's blog post for a week in June. Published them all.
Put the tea in the oven.
Just got another 3 weeks to write and then finally can publish July,August and September blog posts!
Woo Hoo!
Hubby came back and a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
