Nice Bit Of Luck!

Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker.
Welcome to my Thursday 🍰☕
Nice warm hug to start the day off with :)
Brew with breakfast.
Time to add the thermal vest.
I had covered up Sexy Beast last night. 
The temperatures didn't go down to freezing.
Two winter hats and big big gloves go on.
I put on my lights.
Now for fun time 🍭
One woman in a black fiat 500 goes under my stick, and then takes off both hands off her steering wheel, and shows me her palms!!!!!
Who is steering her car???
Still have the limbo dancers chancing their luck under my big stick!
Especially them on the other side of the road!
I survived!
I picks up newspaper on the way home.
Quick coffee.
I told my youngest son to keep an ear out for the DPD delivery man.
Off I go to enjoy a coffee morning with friends.
Picks up one friend.
Now to meet another one there.
I bring a empty Hero's tub to put the cake in, to take home for the 3 men of the family.
I have a slice of cake, and coffee.
I bought my own blue milk with me.
I am joined with my two friends I have a chat with in the afternoon 👄💬 
I have a go on the raffle.
One friend said, "I will laugh if you win first prize!"
We get our photo took to go in the local newspaper next week.....
(I'm sure some people will use my photo as a dart board!)
I said "Goodbye" to everyone.
I said see ya later to my friend.
I dropped the other friend home.
Back home I go.
I finished the soup off I made yesterday.
The DPD driver couldn't or wouldn't find my house.
It has to be delivered elsewhere tomorrow again!
I went upstairs before I was due to leave.
I came back down and had a miscall.
I phoned them back, and found out:
 I had won First prize in the raffle :)
I will pick it up when I go down in a minute.
Round 2 time.
Goes and picks up the First Prize from the Library. I have a chat with everyone in there.
Leaves it in Sexy Beast.
My friend parks next to me.
I asked if she had a phone call, she said no.
I ask her to look on the front seat.
She laughed, and said, "You didn't win first prize?"
"Yep!". 
We then walk up to turn on my lights.
Back to our normal spot and was joined by our other friend for a rabbit....
We say goodbye to each other.
Now to let the fun start 🍭
Oh dear, here we go with the Limbo dancers.
One went straight under my stick, so low, I could have took off his car ariel!
The cars are the otherside ain't stopping either!
Then a car goes past , and the passenger (grandson) throws out half eaten apple out of his window!
That could have hit me!
Glad I finished in one piece!
Hometime.
I starts writing one of two blog posts.
Inbetween doing that, on goes the tea as well.
Hubby comes home and a big wet one 💋
Tea is served up...
There were four empty plates :)
Quick look in the newspaper.

Thanking My Lucky Stars Again!

 I have such poor vision I can date anybody -
Garry Shandling
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice to start the Hump with warm hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋.
It is supposed to be warm later...
The summer coat went on.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
There was a build of traffic on my side of the road. A BMW failed to stop even with my lollipop sticking out, narrowly missed his windscreen.
Going towards the end of my shift.
I am stood in the middle of the road, crossing people over the road.
When a black 64 Renault car didn't want to wait for me to go back on the pavement.
He mounted the pavement, drove across it , and then drove off down the road!
I will track down this car and report it.
Could have knocked someone down on the pavement!
Once finished, I popped into the Co-op as they had a offer on coleslaw! 
I picked up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Washing machine went on.
Now to make a sausage casserole for later.
Leeks, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, sausage and mash was added to cast iron pot.
Hung the washing on the line to dry.
A box arrived for me...
I finally got the whole set of Prima Makes magazines!
The missing one!
Now for a bit of coffee..
with light lunch.
The sun is out!
Nice to see the sun back again!
Summer coat goes on.
Once I put on my lights.
Nice to soak up some rays before I start!
Now to start the afternoon shift.
One woman driving an open car, totally ignored my stick up in the air....
One BMW had to stop,or my stick would have cracked its windscreen.
Survived that shift!
Back home I go.
I got yesterday's blog wrote.
Hubby came back for a sloppy wet 💋
Time to dish up the sausage casserole!
Yum!
We had 2 vouchers for Lidl to use up tonight.
Armed with a long list.
We went shopping.

We got £10 off our shopping \o/
Back home to unpack it all.
After that, we watched the new Netflix doc:
I had one eye on the telly and the other in today's newspaper.
