Fame, I Want To Live Forever...

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint - Mark Twain.
 Welcome to my Tuesday Fun 😁
Nice warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on,
As well as loads of layers,
Winter leggings!
I uncovered Sexy Beast
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left.
There was a slight nip in the air.
Two winter hats and big big gloves went on. 
Turned on my lights.
Let's rock 'n' roll 🍭
I had lots of BOINGs to deal with.
Lots of Limbo dancers drivers going under the stick!
Some drivers did actually stop for me!
I survived the morning shift.
I picked up the newspaper on the way back home.
The coffee machine went on.
Unloaded dishwasher.
The soup maker came out.
Filled it up with veggies and stock and on it went.
Tried to get hold of my 🍭 boss to give her the license plate of the Land Rover from yesterday.
In the end I texted her it.
Then I was told, I had to report it myself.
I tried 101 and gave up after 5 minutes.
I need a coffee now.
I gone on with writing the blog from yesterday.
Once finished.
Now to start on the soup I made this morning.
Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Soup.
It still being a bit cloudy.
No need for the big big sunglasses.
It still feels cold.
The 2 winter hats and big big gloves goes back on .
I turn on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
Glad I put on my big big gloves as it was freezing when I took them off!
I said goodbye to my friends.
My boss is coming down this week to see how bad it is.
Still having cars on the otherside failing to stop.
Same man, in the same van failed to stop on the second day running...
At least I survived!
Two more BOINGs happened.
I covered up Sexy Beast.
Much needed brew time.
Then I wrote a report to the Police on what happened yesterday.
All it takes is another car driver doing it and either they hit me or the people I am crossing over the road!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.  
It is Veggie tea tonight.
I had↓
It was very good.
Hubby had↓
He liked it as well.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Artemios "Demis" Ventouris-Roussos  was a Greek singer, songwriter and musician. As a band member he is best remembered for his work in the progressive rock music act Aphrodite's Child, but as a vocal soloist, his repertoire included hit songs like "Goodbye, My Love, Goodbye", "From Souvenirs to Souvenirs" and "Forever and Ever". 
 Roussos sold over 60 million albums worldwide] and became "an unlikely kaftan-wearing sex symbol"
He sadly died on this day in 2015 aged 68.

Getting Lots Of Big Love

If I had my life to live over again,I would have a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week - Charles Darwin
Welcome to my Thursday.
I had a nice reminder appear on my timeline on FB.
A little bit of Throwback Thursday
  I'm at Middle School & sitting on the front row.
Back today...
The sun is back for now..
  Still feeling cold.
Not quite cold enough for the thermal knickers, or leggings but the jumper will be worn... 
Nice hug and a cup of tea to keep warm with..
Before everyone left,
I gave out wet 💋💋💋💋 to everyone before they left.
 Coffee and Vitamin C time.
I gave the living room a good tidy up.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast..
 Frigging Cold↑↑↑↑
My 🍭 boss and wanted to see my Birth Certificate..
(Right to Work in the UK now)
We postponed our meeting for the afternoon, until I can put my hands on my Birth Certificate!
I hopefully will start my 🍭 job soon :)
I had a quick look in the newspaper↓

It would have been Eddie Cochran's 81st Birthday 🎈
He died aged 21 in 1960.
Chubby Checker, American singer-songwriter (The Twist) is 78 years old 🎈
 Lindsey Buckingham, American guitarist and lead singer (Fleetwood Mac) is 70 years old.🎈
(One of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs is at the end of this blog post)
While singing along with Fleetwood Mac, I looked across the fields of fun...

 I had a nice red shiny face,
Just like my t-shirt I was wearing..↓
One caterpillar was making a quick get away↓
 I was singing along with some great 70s hits on the way home.

 I used up my £5 Bodyshop voucher on something nice↓
 After I came back from the Happy Place of Work, 
I make a nice bit of tea↓
 Meatballs with Linguine
Then we popped into Aldi to get some supplies.
Some nice wreaths to make↓
 Weaving Kit↓
I gets back to do the final job of the day with some great music↓
 Then we caught up with Your Fired.
We watched one episode of Law and Order which I have always remember when the suspect gets off, tries to strangle a member of the jury (he was seeing during the trial and afterwards)
She grabbed some shears and stabbed him to death.
 Now to enjoy some Big Love 💗💗

Forever Monday

Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig - Robert Heinlein
Back on that wobbly work wheel 🎡
First thing to do....
Iron today's t-shirt...
 Followed by coffee and nibble.
  Sorted out the bathroom,
Where a certain shower caddy is going.. 
We don't NEED any more shower gels, bath bombs, shampoos for the rest of the year!
On to a light lunch 
 I'm hoping the rain keeps off...
 It was quite warm.
Had a quick look at the newspaper before I went in↓
 Fingers crossed the rain keeps away
 It was a good Monday shift.
On the way home, I did some great singing along...
It has reached 20c! 
 Coffee and nibbles↓
 Some new editions to my kitchen↓
 I went to my other job and got two thank yous from both bosses for alerting them to something on Sunday night.
 I got the tea sorted.
We finally got the shower caddy up in the bathroom.There are some nasty edges on some of the metal pipes! 
My dad rung me to say his carer hadn't come round.
We arrive the same time as the carer.
We make should he has his tea.
Then we get back home.
 Good job I didn't burn the homemade fruit pie!
Went to my other job with some music to sing along with...
Finally gets back..
I catch up with the new series of "Top Gear".
 In their first adventure together, Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness head to the searing heat of Ethiopia in their first cars. Back at the track, Chris puts the Ferrari 488 Pista and McLaren 600LT through their paces.
Very good and very funny :) 
I hope to hear about the Lollipop 🍭 job soon....
Now for some sleep tea.....
