The Fun In The Sun!

I think I bought a bad computer. The mouse bit me 
- David Letterman
Welcome to my Sunny Tuesday 😎
I felt better having a early night :)
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest is stopping on for the next 6 months. Brrrrr
Now out of the door...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I go to work.
On goes the winter coat, summer hat,
Big big sunglasses.
While I go and turn on my lights.
I chat with the District Councillor.
We talking about the upcoming Rememberance Sunday parade on Sunday.
I may have to lay off the singing abit until Sunday!
"See you Sunday," I replied.
Turned on my lights,
Fetched my newspaper.
I was telling the local Driving Instructor about the crazy car drivers yesterday.
She couldn't believe it!
Back to Sexy Beast , to get my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Off to my spot I go.
All schools were back.
Lots of traffic to deal with.
One woman in a red car on the otherside of the road, wasn't even looking as I was walking across the road!
I had to give one BOING out as one car failed to stop!
When the X19 stopped at the bus stop, one truck couldn't wait, and went on the otherside of the road to overtake the bus!
Good job nothing was coming!
At least the sun was out!
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
Cup of coffee needed.
I got my Council bag and bits ready for later!
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Published two blogs from last week.
Emptied the dish washer.
Liquid lunch time.
I talked to hubby while he was on his lunch break.
Then off to do the afternoon shift.
I went into the Village Hall on Council business.
One friend arrived.
On goes my Winter coat, summer hat.
We go and turn on my lights.
Walked down to the charity shop.
It was quite busy in there.
Didn't buy nothing.
Said goodbye to everyone.
Turned on my lights.
Walked back to Sexy Beast.
I collected my big stick.
Was joined my two other friends who gave my cake tin back to me.
(They enjoyed the cake)
We went over to the square for more rabbit.
My 4th friend joined us for 5 minutes.
Then alas it was time for me to do the afternoon shift.
I said goodbye to everyone.
The low lying sun was becoming a problem.
One car went straight under my stick.
Then the sun went into a cloud \o/
Finished in one piece.
Now home I go.
Cup of brew time.
Early tea.
Netflix time.
Soon as I was getting into it.
It was time to go to my Council meetings.
At least my Garden Lights are still on!
Back here.
Gets ready for the first meeting.
We overran for the next meeting.
Roll on the next meeting.
All done.
Back home I go.
Carried on watching↓
Sleep Tea Time.
Hubby was out seeing a mate.
Younger son was also out.
Now to keep the bed warm for hubby....

I Wasn't Expecting That!

As the cow said to the farmer:
 "Thank you for a warm hand on a cold morning," - John F.Kennedy
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug.
Breakfast with brew.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now here's what happened when I was putting on my trainers at the bottom of the stairs.
Grumpy son slammed the bathroom door really hard...
My late's dad's wall unit which contained his cars and trains...
Flew off the wall, hitting a picture on the wall opposite...
Then it all came crashing down the stairs...
It's a good job I moved out the way and moved to the front door, as I was nearly hit by a large jagged edge of glass from the picture!
It reminded of a certain scene from The Omen..
The glass was bagged up safely,
The frame was in the recycling bin.
Now need a new frame for the nice picture!
Let's hope nothing else is going to happen to me!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I still put on two winter hats and gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now to rock 'n' roll...
Back to normal.
Cars failing to stop both sides.
BOINGS given out left, right and centre!
I spoke to someone and they also said about The Omen. Another said, to sage the whole house.
I survived the morning shift.
I went down to Morrisons for some bits.
I went round to the Newsagent to pick up my newspaper with my new voucher.
Wouldn't scan it, wouldn't accept it.
There was a large queue forming.
I had to pay 70p instead.
(Trying somewhere else to see if the vouchers are playing up)
Gets back home.
The coffee machine goes on.
Dishwasher gets emptied.
The washing gets puts away.
Coffee break!
Soup maker goes on.
Does more housework until it's time for some liquid lunch!
Now out for part 2...
Only one winter and no gloves it was that warm!
Put on my lights.
Now time for a little rabbit with my friends..
Told them about the near miss I had this morning with some broken glass!
I said goodbye to my friends.
I was having fun with the cars again!
Back to ignoring the big stick and let's keep going...
Far too early in the week to tap and crack.....
Some were trying their luck!
At last I finished in one piece!
Home time.
Much needed cup of brew when I got back!
Then it was back to catch up with this blog.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
Then published 4 blog posts.
Now to make the meat-free Stir Fry.
Now to look on Netflix for something to watch...
Really good!
Quick look in today's newspaper.
