See What One Drip Can Lead To!

Automatic simply means that you cannot repair it yourself 
- Jed Larson
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 🐧
Nice warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Thermals on.
7 years ago I started my old Lollipop job.
(I was made redundant in 2018)
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left the house.
On goes the winter hat, gloves, and winter coat.
I turns on my lights...
Let's get it on...
Being ignored by car drivers.
Just going under the stick as though I wasn't even there. Lots of BOING going on car roofs.
When I do stop the car drivers, it's either the their gums are banging or I have the look of death!
At least I finished in one piece!
I collect the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Instead of going on the Spin Bike, I am going to vaccum and mop this morning!
As I look under the kitchen cupboard, I see my bottle of Shake and Vac flowing in a box of water!
The pipe to the washing machine is leaking!
The red box of washing up bottles is all damp.
Soon on the phone to the company that fitted the washing machine.
They are sending someone else to fix the problem!
Now to use Henry to hoover, followed by mopping of the kitchen floor!
Felt better after that!
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog post all the way to lunch.
After lunch...
It's time for part 2.
I puts on the winter hat, gloves and coat.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with my two friends.
The low lying sun is going to cause problems.
I said goodbye to my friends and started my afternoon shift.
Drivers were going too fast, and driving into the low lying sun. One driver was moaning about how he couldn't see me due to the sun!
Two van drives just carried on going under the stick!
Great!
At least I finished in one piece.
My friend appeared and had a further chat until 4.10pm.
I said my goodbyes and drove home.
Nice pink clouds when I got home.
Time for a brew to warm up with.
Hubby came back with some fish and chips for everyone to share.
Now onto Netflix to watch a new series about Serial Killers.
We watched two episodes...
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Sleep tea time.
At last the Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

Heard the sad news that our friend, Joe has lost his seat as a Councillor.

Gave everyone their sloppy wet 💋💋💋
 Big big sunglasses time!
Gets to my lollypop job in the sunshine.
Tree Shot.
It was unusually quiet for a Friday...
I stopped the lambo..
A few car drivers didn't stop when I put my lollipop stick up in the sky!
I finished in one piece this Friday!
Back home in the sunshine.
Much needed coffee needed.
Then back out to do cleaning job.
The dark roast coffee is nice...:)
Finished cleaning.
Wished everyone a good weekend.
Back home for some light lunch.
Goes back out to do my final shift of the week.
Can't find any car parking spaces again.
I finally find one in the old GP Surgery car park.
RESULT!
I put on my summer coat and my summer hat.
Then the fun starts...
Traffic queues starting to build up.
I was asked:"If I was going to wear my summer coat soon?
"I am wearing my summer coat!"I replied.
I finish in one piece.
Now off home for coffee and crumpet!
Then out with a bag of 70's tunes...
Gets into work.
Loads up my skip for my shift.
Had a nice long play with the hoover.
At least the sun is out.
Bagged up all the dirty cloths for the week.
Finished for the week \o/
Back on the singing route.
Back home.
I had tea.
Quick look in the newspaper.
Eddie Rabbitt  was an American country music singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions", "I Love a Rainy Night" (a number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.He sadly died on this day in 1998 aged 56.
I just flopped into bed without my Sleep Tea and not putting in my ear plugs...
I woke up at 3am to the sound of my hubby's loud snoring...
Ear plugs back in...
Silence is Golden!

Funny when they want something signed, they get in contact with me!
Time to dish up the food!
Slowed cooked chicken with vegetables.

While getting ready, the younger son caught his pocket of his coat on the bannister.
