Survived This Friday 13th!

The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈

Friday 13th 😲
Warm hug time.
Brew with Breakfast.
No thermal vest time. 
Final day of work for the week..
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one.
I bought the newspaper.
The Summer coat went on.
Turned on my lights.
Let's go and do it!
The sun came out, and then went in.
It was a bit cold, good job I had my gloves on!
A few cars on the otherside weren't stopping.
BOING,BOING,BOING 
At least I finished in one piece.
I chatted to a parent for twenty minutes.
Then off for coffee and chat!
Now time for coffee, chat and nibbles!
Had a good chat.
Wished my friend a good weekend.
Now off home.
I had a sandwich for my lunch.
Now for the final shift of the week.
 On the way, someone was pulling out of a car park, didn't look right and pulled out straight out in front of me, until I blasted the horn, and it stopped!
I put on my Summer Coat.
Turned on my lights.
Now to soak up the rays..
None of my friends turned up again.
I just enjoyed the rays until I started.
Just as I started, a van was parked on double yellow lines and I couldn't see down the road!
I had fun stepping out,
But with my big stick first!
Few cars on the otherside didn't stop again!
BOING,BOING,BOING again.
Five minutes before I finished the van moved!
Finished in one piece.
Hometime.
Time for a brew!
I put the tea in the oven.
Wrote a blog post.
Hubby came back to have a sloppy wet one.
Tea is served.
Hubby and son then went out to do the shopping.
I looked into today's newspaper.

Wet and Windy Hump!

 I like to do all the talking myself. It saves time and prevents arguments - Oscar Wilde
Welcome to my Wet Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start the Hump with.
Just about to start the breakfast, when hubby knocked over his bowl of porridge and all over the floor it went!
He had to go downstairs to make himself a new bowl of porridge.
I put on the thermal vest.
Dressed.
&
Those sexy lumo trousers as well! 
Gives hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹before I left.
Plenty of wind and rain.
On goes the boots, 2 winter hats and waterproof gloves.
I didn't wait around to for ten minutes to start in the pouring rain and wind. I went and stood by car until it was time to start.
When I did start, oh the fun I had, with the rain lashing down and wind knocking my lollystick all over the place!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I got my neighbour's magazine and my newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Now to have a play with Henry!
Hoovered upstairs and downstairs.
Now to take out my stress on the abs machine.
100 ab crunchies.
Found a lot better after that.
Now to add the thermal backing to the curtains covering the small bedroom window and the small window in the living room.
Early lunch.
What's behind the Advent Calender door today?
I left off those sexy yellow lumo trousers.
Now for part two.
Two winter hats and gloves went on.
My friend was sitting in his car when I was getting changed.He soon came over, and we had a good yak up to my lights, and back down to chat with our other friend.
Who did I happen to see go past in his van?
My gold digging brother...
Pity he didn't come past me 10 minutes later.....
When I was on duty.
It may have stopped raining, but those strong winds were making it well cold, and making cars not stop either.
Some cars on the otherside had no intention of stopping even though I had my stick out and crossing the road! 
It was getting well cold...
Home Time for me!
I added another layer to the curtains at the top of the stairs, plus a third layer to the curtains.
Then I put the tea on.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he came home.
Tea is served.
Time to watch Boris...
