Stop & Go!

Don't look at me in that tone of voice - Dorothy Parker
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hugs with brew!
We might have a day off from the rain..
(I hope!)
Woke up the kids for school.
Gave out plenty of wet sloppy 💋💋💋
Even the big big sunglasses went on!
Winter or Summer coat????
Summer coat with summer hat I think!
Tree Pic
Now for some fun in the sun!
Most of the car drivers are stopping.
The lambo came down the road....
So nice to see it in the morning.
10 minutes before I finished.Two lorries blocked off the side road opposite me.
Someone had a stop and go sign and was directing traffic.
I said to him: "Does he want to swap his stop and go sign for my lollipop stick?
Traffic was backing up both sides of the road.
I was glad to finished.
I went the long way home.
Picking up the newspaper and neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Emptied all the bins in the house.
(Black bin being emptied tomorrow) 
I made a vegetable tart for tea tonight.
Used most of things we had in the wonky box from lidl last Friday.
Once that was made, it was put in the oven for later.
I then wrote 2 blog posts up to lunch.
Light lunch time.
Some of the weather reports say sunshine or rain with thunder for this afternoon.
I decided to not to wear the sexy lumo trousers for this afternoon Lollipop job....
I put on Winter coat and boots.
I turned on my lights and walked back to collect my lollipop stick from Sexy Beast when he started to pour down with rain!
Then it stopped before I was due to start.
I went to see what all the drilling and blocking off the road was for this morning...
The rain came back, pity I didn't have my sexy lumo trousers on after all!
Pity my leggings have shrunk in the wash!
 15 minutes into job and the rain stopped and blue skies with sunshine.
I was getting rather warm in the winter coat.
I'm a bit glad I didn't wear my lumo trousers after all!
As soon as I finished the winter coat was unzipped and took off!
Gets home in the sunshine!
Now for coffee, crumpets and apricot 
Then back out for some 70's singsong...
I followed a white lorry all the way to work, I kept a fair distance away from it...
I gets in, and to my surprise, there was no delivery of toilet cleaner!
Beg, borrow or steal toilet cleaner I feel!!!
Good job I bought my own!
Loaded up the skip...all ready for today's work!
One cubicle is having a run on toilet paper.....
(It must be a favourite one)
Well used the blue mop tonight!
The order has gone in the toilet cleaner, god only knows when I will see it. I might have to nip into Lidl tomorrow to get more toilet cleaner.
Finished on time.
Back in the sunshine singing along with some 70s classics...
Back home in the sunshine.
Had half of the vegetable tart I made earlier.
It was so filling, hubby is taking the rest for lunch tomorrow.
I had a quick look in the today's newspaper.
Freddie Garrity  was an English singer and actor who was the frontman and comical element in the 1960s' beat band Freddie and the Dreamers.
He died on this day in 2006 aged 69. 
Now for some Sleep Tea..
Going to be dodging the rain again tomorrow...

Traffic Light Sandwich

 I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
I had a nice warm hug to start the day.
The brew soon followed.
Woke up the kids ready for school.
Then I gave out the sloppy wet 💋💋💋
Out I go.
Even the big big sunglasses came out!
I looked at the weather forecast. It wasn't going to rain until it least 11 am.
I am going to risk it...
On goes the summer coat!
Tree Shot.
Traffic lights were still there!
Those dark clouds kept coming over.
Fingers crossed the rain held off until I finished.
I had a few cars having to slam on their brakes when I stuck out my lollipop stick.
No lambo today :(
I finished in one piece.
Time for a takeaway coffee!
Back home.
Once I finished my coffee...
Now to some housework of mine.
Wiped down the kitchen surfaces.
Put the washing machine on twice.
Recycle went out.
Mopped the kitchen floor.
Now to catch up with blog....
I wrote 2 blog entries up until lunch!
Light lunch time.
Now out for lollipop job...
It forecasted rain for the afternoon.
On the way to my lollipop job,
There were more traffic lights at the bottom of the road I work in.
Two sets of traffic lights in the same road!
I put on my winter coat and boots.
Good job really, it started to rain 15 minutes before I started.
Traffic was building up for a minute and then going quiet.
While I was walking back to the pavement, one child, just about to walk into the road, I grabbed hold of her hood of her coat, and got her back to the safety of the pavement.The car on the otherside of the road, was thankfully still there.
I crossed the family  over safely after that!
10 minutes before the end of my shift it stopped raining \o/
My friend appeared at the end with his dog in toe.
We had a chat for 10 minutes before we said our goodbyes. 
Back home for a much needed Boost!
Just gets in the car to go to my other job when the rain started again!
Time for more singing in the rain...
Gets in.
Loads up the buckets into my skip.
I had to leave a message about having 2 bottles of toilet cleaner left....
At least the rain has stopped \o/
Finished on time \o/
Back on the singalong home.
At last the sun was out when I got home!
Nice pizza with plenty of garlic and olives on top!
Quick look into today's newspaper.
I was feeling really tired.
I had my sleep tea in bed.
Hubby came back from his dad's.
He was telling me about his visit...
Too late...I was gone Zzzzzzz
