Getting A Bit Too Close For Comfort!

Welcome to my Tuesday 💣
Hug and Brew time!
I got the kids up for school.
Gave everyone a sloppy wet 💋💋💋 before I left.
I left off the big big it was looking a bit cloudy.
The summer coat went on...
It looks warm, but it's not.
Good job I have a jacket on beneath my Summer coat. Let the fun begin.
I didn't have no cars failing to stop today!
No lambo again :(
Finished in one piece.
Now off home.
Much needed coffee with an apple.
Loaded up my Henry into Sexy Beast.

Cleaned, coffee and chat.
Back home I go.
Light lunch time.
I left early to try and get a parking space.
No where to park near my lollipop spot at all.
Back to parking in the supermarket car park.
I did go in and get some drinks for later.
Gets the summer coat on.
Nice long walk up the road to turn on the lights.
I chats with some of the parents while I waiting to start. People were fighting for car parking spaces.
There were blue skies and dark clouds...
There were no major problems of car drivers not stopping this afternoon...
Surely this can't last???????
I finished in one piece.
My friend came and visited me.
We both walked down to where Sexy Beast was parked.
Said my goodbyes and off I went home.
Much needed coffee with crumpets.
Now out for a 60s singalong...
While on the way to work.
Someone in a grey Honda overtook a Blue Zafria right in front of the Speed Camera.
I followed the Zafria until it turned off.
Guess who I was behind at the traffic light?
The grey Honda who overtook the Blue Zafria and put its foot down!
I gets in to see a nice message aimed at me!
The two vaccum cleaner they gave me to use,
one has not got a PAT testing sticker on it,
The other one PAT testing sticker expired 2019
At least the toilet cleaner has come!
I switched the floor tool on one vaccum and it still wouldn't suck anything up!
So the whole pipe was put in Sexy Beast to be unblocked at home.
Finished on time.
Now for more fun on the way home!
One lorry followed me from the traffic lights, one car has slam his brakes on while coming out of a side road. This lorry didn't like doing 45 m.p.h.
It reminded me a film called Duel!
I went through the Speed Camera at 45 mph.
It was so close to the back of me, I couldn't see his license plate!
It turned off later on.
Later on, I followed a car sticking to the speed limit of 40mph.
It carried on doing 40mph in a 70 limit.
I overtook it, and looked up when I got off the duel carringway and it was following me, cars were overtaking it,as she went down to 20 mph in a 40 mph limit.
I was glad to get home!
Time for something to eat!
Nice full moon tonight.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea time.
Let's hope for a sunny Hump tomorrow 🐫
