Bring On The Baker!

When I dance, people think I'm Looking for my keys- 
Ray Barone
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start Friday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Now to get dressed.
(Thermal vest goes on)
My picture appeared in today's newspaper↓↓
(I'm the one holding the big stick!)
Now out of the house I go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one...
2 winter hats, and gloves go on.
I turned on my lights.
Now for some fun....🍭
Lots of traffic for Manic Friday.
One car slammed the brakes on, while I was crossing the road, the car behind her, slammed her brakes as well, and there was nearly a smack up her rear!
One car I stopped wasn't waiting for me to remove my stick in front of the car, she put her foot down, and I had to whisk my big stick out of her way!
Some people tried to cross without me, and no cars stopped for them. I stepped in, and they soon stopped.
A bus nearly smacked a car from behind when the car in front stopped suddenly.
Inches away the bus was.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Now to fetch the new breadmaker.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Drops off breadmaker and newspaper.
Back out for coffee, and yak.
I did bring along some blue milk.
But they had some already.
The first coffee was with double cream.
Next up a rather large brunch!
Two more coffees followed.
Lots of chat as well.
Said goodbye to my friend.
On the way home, I saw my friend who I chat to in the morning, with his wife walking the brown lab they are looking after, going for a walk.
I waved to them, as I went past.
Back home.
Opened the box of my new breadmaker.
I will have to try this out tomorrow.
Still to full to eat anything.
Now out for the final round 2 of the week.
On goes one winter hat, and a lightweight pair of gloves.
I turn on my lights.
I only have one friend to rabbit with.
(As my other friend is doing overtime at work)
Wished my friend a good weekend.
Now to do final shift of the week.
Still the car drivers do the Limbo Dance!
Plus having to put up with low lying sun as well.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time for me!
Now to put on the dishwasher, washing machine, and oven.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
As I was still full up from earlier.
Everyone else had either pie and chips or fish cake and chips.
I gave hubby a wet one when he came home.
I dished up their tea.
In the end, I had a cheese and cucumber bap.
Hubby wrote out the shopping list, and went out with son to do the shopping for next door as well.
I meanwhile looked in today's newspaper.

Looks like I have missed the rain!
Just my luck!
Wears the waterproofs and the sun comes out!
Once I have put on my lights, the fun starts.
Cars were stopping.
Except for the 4 cars, one after each other didn't stop. The 5th car driver did finally stop :)
The winds were getting up.
That is why I only poked my stick out a bit.
I didn't fancy flying off with my lollipop stick!
Everyone asked where I was yesterday morning.
I told them the stick was separated from top and the bottom.
I finished in one piece.
I go round and to pick up newspaper.
When the Land Rover came up behind me.

Just arrived home,
And it starts to rain!
Coffee machine goes on.
Gets ready for my friend to arrive.

Now to leave.
One Land Rover failed to stop at the road traffic island, nearing hitting me as I was going around it.The  licence plate had 50 FT in it.
50 FT of dum dum I say...
I tried to tie my hat down with a scarf as it was quite windy. On goes the boots and gloves again.
The doughnuts are ready for my friends.
I turned on my lights.
Now waited for my friends to arrive.
The sun keeps appearing.
My friends arrive for rabbit and doughnuts.
The wind is really getting up strong.
I wish my friends a good weekend.
Now for me to start.
Talk about being blown about!
Dum Dum in his Land Rover went past me twice, having a good look at me being blown about!
I gave up on the scarf holding my hat down, as it kept flying off!
I couldn't do the BOING as my lollipop stick would have blown away! 
I finished in one piece.
I will have to consult my pine cone for further weather predictions, as today it was forecasted rain from the forecast on my phone and no rain appeared only sun!
Back home.

Pump Up The Loft!

I had a job as an airline pilot. I was fired because I kept locking the keys in the plane. They caught me on a 80-foot stepladder with a coat hanger - Steven Wright
Welcome to my Friday's Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start the day off with.
It's supposed to go up to 21c today...
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Summer Coat time...
Turned on my lights...
Now for the fun to start...🍭
The traffic lights at the bottom of the road was causing a traffic jam all the way up to me!
One side of the road was grid-locked. At least I only had one side of the road to stop!
(Or try too!)
At least I finished in one piece.
Now onto coffee and B3...
I had a coffee while waiting for my friend to arrive.
Hubby had to ask the Loft firm if they were coming as there was no sign of them by 10am.
They couldn't find the house!
They soon laying the insulation.
I had one last coffee.
I said goodbye to my friend and on home I went.
When I got home, their van was parked over the drive, so I parked on the road.
I was dying to use the toilet, but the boards were in the way.
Off to Morrisons to use their toilets.
Back again home for a very quick lunch.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I left.
On goes the Summer Coat.
My friend appears, so I nip and get a sausage roll, turn my lights and sit down with a chat with my friend for a chat.
I wished him a great weekend before I started my afternoon shift. 
Still having problems with the traffic backing up to me.
One car has stopped still for a good five minutes in the meantime I had crossed over about 10 people.
I finished in one piece.
They had finished the loft by the time I got home!
It was nice to use my own toilet!
The loft looks well nice.
We have to get a taller ladder as the kids can just about in the loft.
A little nibble...
We put some off-cuts of carpet to keep it a bit extra warm.
Shopping will be done tomorrow...
As well as bringing the stuff back from the storage unit, to go back into the warm loft!
Take away pizza for a late tea.
Quick look in the newspaper.
