Rubbish Monday!

If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P Morgan
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
The sun was out at alast \o/
We were too late to do the Heardle.
I will do that later on.
Breakfast and Brew time.
The thermal vest still goes on.
Now to leave the house...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Now off to work.
On the way, I had one car come off the slip road and nearly push me on the grass verge!
I witnessed that bad driving of theirs all the way to work!
Glad to get to work in one piece!
On goes those big  big sunglasses.
As well as my summer hat, and winter coat.
Goes and puts on my lights and gets my newspaper.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
I have trouble with problem parkers again.
I had one scafford lorry parked on the double yellow lines opposite me, then one further down the road, causing the traffic to back up to me and having car stop in the Keep Clear space.
Still had car ignoring my big stick on the other side of the road.
Another lorry then parked up as the last one had.
Then causing more traffic problems.
Before leaving one of the passengers throws his breakfast out of the window all over the pavement!
At least I finished in one piece.
Back home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
Puts on the dishwasher.
Now for coffee!
Writes two blog posts up to liquid lunch.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my summer hat and winter coat.
I left off the gloves.
Now to go and turn on my lights.
Nips into the Charity Shop.
Had a good chat with everyone in there.
Except when one man from the Chip shop comes in and asks if they could knock some money off a coat they were selling.
I thought he was joking, but wasn't!
I had an experience with someone else trying to knock off some money off something in a Charity Shop some time ago.
From what I was told, he is always doing it!
I left to turn on my lights.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick. 
I go and wait by the bench in the square.
Two regular friends didn't turn up.
My other two friends did turn up.
One was going to the Doctors as he is still unwell. I had a laugh with his wife until it was time for me to start.
Hopefully I will see them tomorrow.
Now to cope with the low lying sun.
Still had cars on the otherside of the road failing to stop.
It was quite quiet for a Monday!
At least I survived!
One friend turned up with his dog just as I finished. We had a little catch up what he had been doing over the weekend.
Hopefully we will have a bigger catch up tomorrow.
Off I went home.
Cup of brew followed.
I wrote another blog post up to tea.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Now You See It!, Then You Don't!

Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start Hump Day 🐪
Breakfast with Brew.
Thermal vest
Winter leggings go on.
Now to uncover Sexy Beast
I gives hubby a wet sloppy 💋 before I leave.
It might be a sunny Hump Day!
The 2 winter hats and big big gloves still go on.
I puts on my lights.
Now let the fun start 🍭
It seems my lollipop stick has turned invisible to some drivers.
Especially them coming up the road!
I had 5 cars going straight under my stick.
BOING x 5!
At least the sun is out!
Finished in one piece!
I filled up Sexy Beast.
Picked up my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way back home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Dishwasher gets emptied and loaded up.
The soup maker comes out.
Chop chop I go with the veggies.
On it goes...
Puts out all the saucepans I need for tonight's tea.
Now for some much needed Coffee.
I got a reply to the report I gave to the Police about what happened on Monday↓

"Thank you for your report, I am sorry to hear that you are being subjected to such a lack of respect whilst trying to keep young children safe crossing the road.
  I have requested that your local neighbourhood policing team engage with you and offer some visible support.
  I have also recorded the details of the car that chose to drive around you and requested they are spoken to about their reckless driving, if they are a local resident."
Let's hope the neighbourhood Police team do come out and observe what is happening,as nothing has been done in the past 2 years I have been doing this job!
Soup done, that's our lunch for tomorrow. 
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
Now to finish off the soup from yesterday.
The sun disappered and we had clouds instead.
On goes the winter hats and gloves.
I puts on my lights.
Off for a little rabbit with my two friends before I start my afternoon shift.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Let the fun start!
Oh dear, I'm having the same trouble as this morning. My big stick has turned invisible again.
I counted 15 cars going under my stick or on the other side of the road, just driving through.
One 61 plate white Corsa was waiting in a side road for me to cross someone over. The kids just got over the road, as he sped past them!
At least I survived for another day!
Back home.
A much needed cup of brew before I start on the tea.
I made my own Pasta Sauce.
(Added a bit of Chilli for a kick)
The pasta was just done when hubby walked through the door.
He had a sloppy wet 💋.
Dished up tea.
Afterwards I looked into today's newspaper.

Amazing who you bump into at Waterstones!
Hubby has applied for another job, 
A working from home one.
Fingers crossed he gets it.
He won't miss the driving to work and driving back!
Sleep Tea time.
Hoping my big stick will not be so invisible tomorrow!
