Nice To See You, To See You Nice!

This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force - Dorothy Parker
 Welcome to my hot sweaty Tuesday 😰
Got the picture of the sunrise!
Now to test the little grey cells....
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Breakfast Time with brew.
Gave hubby a wet sloppy one 😘 before he left for work.
Younger son had a day off from work.
He was going for a long walk with a friend later.
I sorted out the stuff under the Garden Table.
Now for me to go for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
Another trip to Wickes for me.
The one that served was in the same year as my younger son, they went to the same First, Middle and High schools.
About 13 years ago:
I used to be a part of a group of parents walking some children up to the First School, it was called "The Walking Bus".
One winter's day, waiting for the kids to be dropped off. The mum of this particular child, dropped them off with no coat and suffering from Flu.
I did ask, "If she was going to fetch their coat?"
"No, she will be fine, anyway I have a high pressured job!"
And off she went!
I got my bits.
Now onto Asda.
I got some small bits and my newspaper.
Back home.
Coffee machine went on.
So did the washing machine. 
Now to enjoy coffee in the shade!
Then the gloves went on,
Opened a new tin of vanish to apply the second coat to the garden bench.
First coat to the wishing well.
The sun was moving around and it was getting warm!
Younger son went off to meet a friend for a nice long walk.
I had a early lunch.
An old friend is covering my postman's duty this week.
The last time he saw me, I was wearing a nice black boot to walk on↓↓
That was back in 2018!
(I had a op to reattach my achilles tendon,
which was snapped off when I was coming out of Lunchtime job on Halloween 2017.
I had to learn to walk, drive etc, finally went back to work after 8 months off!)
I said," It was nice to see you, to see you nice!"
when he left.
My order arrived :)
I didn't order enough ribbon for the cake board, for the LGBTQ+ Bake off.....↓
Had to order some more!
My younger son came back from his walk.
He bought back a lovely ice lolly for me :)
He did 11,000 steps.
He treated himself to a Paul McCartney CD from HMV↓
Tea at much later than 3pm.
Other son started his new job.
I wished him luck and gave him a sloppy wet one before he left.😘
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home and received a sloppy wet one too 💋
Nice easy tea involving Quiche.
Quick look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1967:

UK No.1 on this day in 1980:

Son came back from his first day at his new job.
He really enjoyed it!
Full moon tonight.
Whereas the moon was coming up,
I missed the the sun going down!
A paraglider was coming over the house.
Enjoying the silence and it is getting dark early now.
Back in for some sleep tea.
Look like it going to be hot sweaty Hump tomorrow 🐪

Beware A Blackbird Crossing!

It's not what I do, but the way that I do it.It's not what I say, but the way I say it, and how I look when I do it and say it - Mae West
Welcome to aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big of hug to enjoy Monday with.
We do all the Heardles, Poster and Film.
The 60s Heardle was:
Breakfast with brew.
(No need for the thermal vest \o/)
Some weather reports forecasted rain this morning.
Not so much to put on my lumo trousers!
Let's go!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I went and got the newspaper before I put on the big coat.
There were reports of rain or sunshine.
I put the coat on with the hood to be on the safe side.
Lights turned on.
Let's go to work!
Normal Monday fun.
Two car perform Limbo dancing for me.
(Going straight under my big stick that was out in front of me!) 
One Blackbird landed on the pavement over the otherside of the road. Looked left and right and walked straight over the road, and looked at me when he walked past me!
I chatted to some of the parents.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Put on the coffee machine.
The Washing Repair Man will be here soon.
He is here!
Looks under the sink and finds the washer that should have been fitted when the washing machine was first plumbed in!
(The place where I bought it off, sent their plumbers to fit it, without the washer.
Then the pipe was leaking.
They sent someone back out, and fitted a washer too small, and it carried on leaking!)
The Repairman fitted the original washer and no leaks now!
I thanked him for coming.
Now for the soup maker to come out. 
The factory next door, has the tree felling men in↓
Now for some liquid lunch!
It was forecasting rain for this afternoon.
Now for round 2.
I played safe and put the winter coat with the hood!
I turns on my lights.
I sit and wait for my friends to arrive.
The same Blackbird from this morning did the same, however he stopped in the middle of the road to let a car go, and carried onto the otherside of the road!
Only one friend came for a rabbit.
Time to start.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Round 2.
Still had cars on the otherside not stopping...
Lots of BOINGs given out!
Finished in one piece.
I got chatting to the woman who does the line dancing for a bit.
A young lad fell off his scooter,as his scooter hit a pot hole.He was lay in the road. I went over to see if he was alright. He was just a bit shocked.
I helped him up, and he rode off.
Went back to chatting, then it started to rain. We moved to the shelter and more yak!
After talking for 40 minutes, I said my goodbyes and off home in the rain I went.
Ran to the house.
Put the kettle on for the brew.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then started on the tea.
I gave hubby another wet sloppy one 💋
Meat Free Stir Fry
Earlier on my son used his £2 credit in LIDL.
He had no change and had to pay 7p on his card!
Now to look in today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1998:
All Saints - Under the Bridge 
USA No.1 on this day in 1960:
The Everly Brothers - Cathy's Clown
It's been a long day...
Sleep Tea Time.
Let's hope I miss the rain tomorrow!
