Gotta Get Thru' This!

 I don't like people who take drugs - customs men for example - Mick Miller
Welcome to my unwell Thursday 😩
Still feeling unwell.
Hubby had breakfast on his own.
I am just drinking plenty of fluids.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he left for work.
I stopped in bed and read yesterday's newspaper.
Later on I got up,
Thermal vest got on.
Lots of layers.
Liquid lunch time.
Then I went back to bed as I feel terrible.
I have a meeting with the Council next week about what the plans are for next door.
Should I Be Worried?
Never been told anything until now, unless it does involve my house? 
Hubby comes back and has a sloppy wet one 💋
Very light tea.
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Party's Going On Under Here!

The longer the title, the less important the job - George McGovern
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big stretch for Monday.....\o/
Warm hug followed.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
Moon was out...still!
Covid-19 Booster Jabs were been given out in the hall. So I parked around the corner.
Another moon picture...
The sun was coming up as well!
Two hats and warm gloves went on.
I put on my lights...
Now let's go to work....🍭
I was well warm under my coat...
Party going on under it!
The sun was out, blue skies...
And I forgot to put on my big big sunglasses..
Some car drivers were in a rush on the opposite side of the road not to stop.
One woman in a red car just looked at me as she drove past!
I survived the Monday morning \o/
Followed a Land Rover Discovery to the island.
It didn't stop, and barged itself around the island nearly crashing into another car coming round!
I nipped into Wickes for my order.
Then I collected my newspaper.
Back home...
The coffee machine goes on.
I get changed into my exercise gear.
Now a bit of rowing for a Monday!
Backwards and forewards for 20 minutes!
Out comes the Spin Bike next.
10 minutes of watching Ronin,
Enough of that!
Gets changed.
Coffee time!
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
All the way to lunch!
Now for part 2.
Get's stuck behind a Cement Mixer lorry for the whole journey to work doing about 25 m.p.h.
Parks around the corner.
One winter hat and a pair of gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Oh dear the low lying sun...
I has a good rabbit with my two friends.
I say goodbye to them.
Right here we go on round 2.
One big car parked in the Keep Clear on the otherside of the road.
The parents and children couldn't get to the pavement she was parked in the way.She was given lots of death stares by the parents until she managed to move forward!
I finished in one piece.
I put my lollystick in Sexy Beast.
I had a parent in the car next door watching me doing it, and then said to me when she got out the car,
"We wondered how you was going to put that stick in your car!"
"There are 3 versions, one full one, one with metal in the middle, or a plastic middle.
I prefer the full one!" I replied.
Back home.
Sexy Beast gets covered up.
Now for a much needed cup of tea!
We had our tea early.
My nice meat free stir fry.
The Tiler came and did a bit more.
He is coming the weekend to finish it off.
Quick look in the today's newspaper.
Tom  Conti  is a Scottish actor, theatre director, and novelist. He won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in 1979 for his performance in Whose Life Is It Anyway? and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1983 film Reuben, Reuben
He is 80 years old 🎈 
Mae West (born Mary Jane West) was an American stage and film actress, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned over seven decades. She was known for her breezy sexual independence, and her lighthearted bawdy double entendres, often delivered in a husky contralto voice. She was active in vaudeville and on stage in New York City before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry.
West was one of the most controversial movie stars of her day; she encountered problems especially with censorship. She once quipped, "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." She bucked the system by making comedy out of conventional mores, and the Depression-era audience admired her for it. When her film career ended, she wrote books and plays, and continued to perform in Las Vegas and the United Kingdom, on radio and television, and recorded rock 'n roll albums. In 1999, the American Film Institute posthumously voted West the 15th greatest female screen legend of classic American cinema. 
She died on this day in 1980 aged 87. 
Sleep tea time.
I found a job I was doing earlier in the year been advertised again.
It's gone up by £1!
I sent my CV. I won't get a reply as I am deemed a trouble maker for wanting my emergency tax repaid back to me.They held on to it for two months, after I mentioned ACAS, they repaid it back in the third month!
At least they looked at my CV ;)
Hubby was practising his snooker.
He won 2 and lost 2.
I was sound asleep when he came back...
Night Night
