Misses It Again!

 The safest way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket - Kim Hubbard
 Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐫
Nice hug with brew to start Hump Day!
Got one son up for school.
Now to share out my sloppy wet 💋💋💋 
On goes the summer coat.
As soon as I take the Tree Pic,
Down came the rain.
I put on my lights, and hurried back to Sexy Beast.
I changed into my Winter Coat and went to start on my spot.
No sooner as I had started, one woman in a black car nearly had her windscreen smashed by my lollipop stick as she failed to stop.
I shouted, "Missed!"
Five minutes later the same woman came to see me and said sorry for not stopping!!!!!!
I am circling this day, as it's not going to happen again!
The man in his Rolls Royce went past me, talking on his mobile phone. 
Blue skies appeared and it was getting well warm in my winter coat!
Finished in one piece.
Now off to B&Q. 
I got some bits to paint the hall ceiling over the weekend....
Next into Asda for some milk...
Nice tv!
 I was chatting with a man near the CD section.
I picked up the 60's CD and put it in my trolley.
He said to me:
"I never really appreciated The Beatles in the 60's until now.My daughter likes the group, Manfred Mann!"
I replied to him:
"I like the  Manfred Mann as well, I even sent Manfred a 80th Birthday card last year!"
Then the conversation finished.
I picked up some sunflowers for the garden.
A 60s CDs I haven't got. 
Back home.
Repotted the sunflowers in the garden.
Now for a much needed coffee.
Got tea ready for later...
Sausage Casserole with mash!
Once everything was done.
In the red heavy casserole dish it went.
Now for my light lunch.
It started to rain when I left the house.
I just had a few songs left on my 50's CD to listen to.
When I got to Lollipop job.
The new CD went in.
There was 40% chance of rain...
The winter coat went on,
As well as the boots.
I turned on my lights and chattered with one of the parents.
The sky didn't look too good for rain either!
Let the fun start...🎈
One old man in a red car failed to stop.
Nearly went BOING BOING on his car roof as he went under my stick!
The rain clouds cleared, the sun came out and the temperature went up....
It's a good job I carried some water with me, it was so hot in my winter coat!
Finished in one piece,
Now to strip off the winter coat and boots!
Back home for a much needed ice lolly!
I had a lovely ice lolly to cool down with.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back with today's newspaper and next's door magazine.
Dished up the sausage casserole.
One son went to a pub to watch the football game.
While we watched the Blu Ray of Justice League.
(4 hours and 2 minutes long)
We got through 50 minutes of the film.
Son needed to be picked up from Pub.
The score was:
England 2 Denmark 1 
The final is on Sunday!
Quick look into today's newspaper before bed.
The Beatles's "All You Need is Love" is released on this day in 1967.
"The Spy Who Loved Me", 10th James Bond film starring Roger Moore and Barbara Bach, premieres in London, in 1977. 
Let's hope I'm in the Summer and not the Winter Coat tomorrow!
