Fighting For That Councillor Tin Hat!

The English are best explained in terms of terms of tea, roast beef and rain.A people is first what it eats,drinks and gets pelted with - Pierre Daninos.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
No sunrise :(
However older son became a Councillor for Church Hill.
Woo hoo :)
There is now two Councillors in the house.
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest still goes on.
Final day at work!
Time to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes the Summer hat and summer coat.
I walk down the road to turn on my lights.
Buys the newspaper.
Swaps the newspaper for my big stick.
Goes and turns on my other lights.
Let's go to work....🍭
It was a bit quiet for traffic.
(Not like yesterday!)
Last minute braking and BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Off home I go.
There were two Council vans over the drive.
I went round to my neighbour's house and two workmen were in there deciding on what room to start on.
I asked if they could just move the van up a bit so I could get my car on the drive.
They told me the kitchen has to be ripped out, and the shed has to go.
The van was moved down and I parked on the drive.
Now for coffee!
There was lots of drilling, and banging coming from next door.
(Wait to see if the bamboo is going to be chopped down)
Household chores done.
Downloaded photos for yesterday's blog.
Liquid lunch time.
It was forecasted to rain at the time I start the afternoon shift.
It was too warm to wear those lumo trousers.
Those dark clouds look grim↓
Had to listen to a good song on repeat,
Can you guess which one it was?
(It's at the end of this blog post)
I puts on my Summer Coat and Summer hat on.
Goes and puts on both sets of lights.
I visited the Charity Shop for a rabbit..
The Corner shop was closed to get the Post Office fitted in it.
(Post Office opens on May 19th)
Goes back to Sexy Beast.
I takes the lining out of my winter coat.
I put that on, and my waterproof shoes as those dark clouds are coming over.
None of my friends, came for a rabbit.
I'm need of a Boost now! 
One school was let out early.
I goes over to my spot.
Soon as I started the rain came down....
It rained for ten minutes.
Still had cars stopping in the Keep Clear space!
Lots of BOINGs given out for cars not stopping.
Then it started to rain again!
Finished in one piece.
I got talking to someone about how much fun I am going to have being an Councillor for over an hour!
Wishes them a good Bank Holiday Monday.
Back home I go.
I went to see what the Council had been doing to next door's house.
All the kitchen cabinets had been ripped out.
The three interior doors were outside.
The fireplace was ripped out.
There was a crab in a bag on the floor↓
And some Cinnamon sticks if anyone is interested?
Gets the tea on the go.
Results from Studley North.
6 of the 8 will be Councillors  on the Parish Council.
 Hubby has a sloppy wet one 💋 when he comes home.
Fish and chips time.
Looked into today's newspaper.

Now to enjoy some Friday Feeling in a warm bed 🎈

Down It Came.....

No one has a finer command of language than the person who keeps his mouth shut - Sam Rayburn
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice big hug with brew to start Hump Day with :)
Gets up our kids ready for school.
I give everyone sloppy wet 💋💋💋
I'm glad the sun has reappeared!
Big big sunglasses time!
I still wears my winter coat as it's still freezing cold.
Tree pic
Soon the fun starts...
My lollypop stick starts turning invisible to car drivers, and they don't stop for it! 
Some of the parents can't believe some of the car drivers ain't stopping...
I just shrug my shoulders.
I stopped the lamo again.
While I was waiting for people to cross over.
A woman in a BMW went passed me,
Texting on her mobile while driving...
Tut Tut....
I stopped the blue car once more...
(Who tried to kill me Friday morning)
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Half of my Aldi arrived.
The Garden Wishing well will be dispatched on Sunday.
I got tonight's tea ready and put in the oven for later.
Was going to mop the floor, however I couldn't find the dust pan and brush to get up the bits.
Something hubby can hunt down for later on..
Then it started to rain.....
Coffee time!
Now to write two blog posts with some great music from my playlist to sing along with!
Finishes just in time for lunch!
Rain was forecasted.
I was in two minds whether to put on the lumo trousers. I was going to be too warm in them.
I will wear my boots to keep my feet dry IF it does rain...
Boots on and winter coat.
5 minutes before I started my second shift of the day....
The Heavens opened and the rain came pouring down...
Everyone was getting wet.
I even stopped the blue car yet again....
One small white car avoided having her windscreen hit by my lollypop stick by 2 inches....
5 minutes before the end of my shift..
The rain stopped, and blue skies appeared!
I finished in one piece.
Back to Sexy Beast to take off my wet coat and gloves!
Back home.
I got changed, had coffee and crumpets.
My youngest son was going out with Joe to post more leaflets as it's the last day before voting tomorrow.
I left soon after.
Then it started to rain again....
Singing in the rain once more... 
Time for more 70s music to singalong with..
I gets in.
Packs up my skip called Mule
The sun is back instead of rain!
Got all what I had to do.
The big big sunglasses had to come out once more!
Time for the return leg of 70s time!
The sun is still shining when I got back.
Had my lovely chicken tea.
(Finished it off before I had chance to take a picture of it ;)
Younger son was dropped back soon after I finished my tea.
He had his soon as he told me the fun he had delivering the leaflets with Joe and Pete.
Some Labour leaflets were dropped through the letterbox of the Tory candidate who is standing against
(I told Joe that we actually had some tory leaflets dropped through our letterbox for the first time in 12 years......straight in the recycle bin they went!)
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Tammy Wynette (born Virginia Pugh; ) was an American country music singer-songwriter and musician and was one of country music's best-known artists and biggest-selling female singers.
She would have been 79 years old 🎈
She sadly died aged 55 in 1998. 
Sleep Tea time.
Let's hope the sun appears tomorrow than the rain!
