Smiling Can Be Dangerous!

God loved the birds and invented tress. Man loved the birds and invented cages - Jacques Deval
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐫
Hoping no more rain or wind today...
I was up too early for a Wednesday↓
 I needed a honey,lemon and ginger tea.
Once the alarm went off,
I went to give Sleeping Beauty a much deserved hug...
Once I got dressed.
Tea and more hugs time↓
 I blew hubby a 💋
Gave my kids sloppy 💋💋
Now out of the door I go↓
 It was still nice and dark when I got down there.
 The tree shot before I turned on the lights↑
While I was doing my lollipop job,
An ex-postman drove up by the side of me, slid down his passenger window,
"What are you going to do with lollipop stick?" He asked.
I put my lollipop stick through the open window, and replied to him.
"Get you to lick it!".
He laughed, I removed my lollipop, and he drove off.
Still have cars failing to stop.
At least I had no rain or wind to put up with...
I finished in one piece.
Gets home..
 I enjoyed coffee and nibble↓
 Followed by a light lunch↓
 Blew my hubby a 💋
Back out..↓
 New CD to listen to↓
sing along with...
 I looked inside the paper↓

 I had to put up with the low lying sun again↓
 I smiled at one man driving a truck...
He then turned around in the junction opposite me..
(Smiling can be dangerous!)
Not to worry, he carried on past me.....
Back to the job...
One red Range Rover failed to stop and carried on under my stick!
(You can't teach stupid!)
Finished in one piece. 
Back home,
