In need of a coffee....
Lots of stalls to walk around.
Pots for the garden, 50p each.

We walked around twice.
Talked to one woman I know from my Lollypop job.She asked where I had been?
"There is a lot going round,"She said.
Back to the car, moving onto the Recycle Place in Stratford.
I got a nice bit of LLoyd Loom for £5.
On the way home, we got stuck in 5 way lights!
One of the queues when we went past was nearly a mile long.
Goes to the Co-op to get reduced veg for the soup this week.
Nice drink & nibble when we got out!
Gets back home to unload the car.
I start chopping the veg for the Soup Maker.
Puts the shopping away, and all the things we got from the car boot.
Soup time!
Afterwards, it was time to sort out Sexy Beast.
Checked the tyres.
Put a little bit of fuel in.
Then back home.
Took all the washing off the line.
Sorted it all out.
I left hubby to sort out the tea for tonight.
I had a blog post from yesterday to write.
Once it was done,
Tea was ready.

Stop, It's Nearly Friday!

Welcome to my Thursday 🚸
Nice warm hug....
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on,
As well as several layers!
Now to uncover Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
It feels so cold!
On goes two winter hats and big big gloves.
I puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
Just after I started,
A nice car went past :)
There were lots of last minute braking.
It's not as if they can't see me in a great lumo coat, swings a big stick with Stop in front of them!
I had a few cars going under the stick.
Lots of BOINGS!
At least I finished in one piece!
I went down to the local Co-op for some bits.
Then off to collect the newspaper.
Back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Dishwasher empited.
Starts on the tea for later.
Stuffing made.
Peeled some potatoes and some sweet potatoes.
The veg was put in the saucepan ready.
Pan fried the Pork Chops.
Added the stuffing on the top.
In the oven ready for later.
The Soup maker came out as well.
Chicken pieces, chopped mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, herbs and stock went in.
While that was cooking,
I needed that coffee!
I got on writing yesterday's blog post.
All the way up to lunch!
Soup Time.
The sun was out again....
Those Big Big Sunglasses have to come out again!
I still had my two hats and gloves on.
My two friends appeared a lot earlier than they do, they waited by our normal spot to yak.
I went and turned on my lights.
Then it was rabbit time!
It came the time to start, and said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start!
The low lying sun didn't help!
Lots of car were failing to stop, and going under the stick.
Lots of BOINGS were given out!
One road worker couldn't believe the cars were not stopping.
Average 3 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon.
He said,"He sees me up the road in the morning, and can't understand why they don't stop for me!"
"A trip to SpecSavers might be needed!" I replied.
My friend appeared with his dog, as I finished.
We had a good chat while I stood by Sexy Beast.
I wished a good night, and off I went home.
On the way home, one red car was kissing Sexy Beast's backend. I tried to lose it further up the road, then there is was again, until it turned left at the traffic island!
 I covered up Sexy Beast.
(As it's going to go cold tonight!)
Much needed tea is needed.
I had a 20 minute power nap to get rid of an unwanted migraine.
It had gone when I woke up!
Hubby came back for a sloppy wet 💋
Tea is served.
We watched the first episode of the second season of "Fame."
