Heads off to the shady part of the park to suck on a much needed ice lolly before I start work.
Looking at my spot from a shady spot!
The one car that had to stop for me, as I was already in the middle of road, had to wait a little bit longer as I had lots of people to cross over.
It was well warm out there. 
Glad of the bottle of water I brought with me.
Finished in one piece.

In Need Of A Good Blast!

 I'm a wonderful housekeeper. Every time I get a divorce, I keep the house - Zsa Zsa Gabor
 Welcome to my Sunday fun 💋
I was up at 5.30 as I was far too hot.
I gave the garden a quick water before it got too hot too do so!
I published 9 blog posts.
Sleeping Beauty woke up and we had a nice breakfast downstairs while it was still cool!
Now out to sort out Sexy Beast... 
Checks the tyres...
Fills up for the week with fuel.
On the way to town, one car couldn't wait to go into the car park of the lake, and drove straight in front of me....
He had a good blast of the horn off me...
Nearly causing an accident....!
Now off to town...
Car park 7 was still closed.
Parked in Car Park 4 instead.
Hubby got some new clothes from Primark.
I got some clothes in the sale in New Look.
It was getting well warm in the Shopping Centre.
Time for a quick visit to Mum and Dad.
(And to water the plants on their grave)
Back home.
Light lunch.
Then off to Costa Coffee in Henley to get some more nibbles.
Back home.
See what nibbles we got...
Enjoyed the sunshine in the garden...
(Under the parasol)
I got more food from Waitrose on the food app.
Now to go and get it...
The staff were talking about the Magic bag I had to come and collect.
I told them I was here for the Magic bag.
It wasn't ready, so I went off into WH Smith to have a look in there.
Five minutes later the magic bag arrived with some reduced flowers!
Back home.
Now for tea...

In Need Of The Ice Lolly!

Some people pay a complment as if they expected a receipt 
- Kim Hubbard
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice big warm hug with brew.
I got one son up for school.
I took a bottle of water with me as it was already getting warm.
Gave out sloppy wet 💋💋💋
Now out,
Summer coat on.
Big big sunglasses.

Now for the fun to start...🎈
It was quiet for a Friday...
A few car drivers were banging their gums together because I stopped them.
It was getting quite warm in my coat....
(Don't know what this afternoon is going to be like!)
I finished in one piece, and was glad to take off the coat!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
I gives the plants a quick drink before the sun moves around.
Now for coffee and nibble in the garden.
My friend comes round with her daughter.
She is having the pink car and the sandpit when she comes around during the school holidays.
(another good deed)
She then left to go to town with another friend.
I meanwhile chilled in the garden until the sun came round, then it was too hot to sit in it!
Watched another episode of Hotel Inspector.
It was warming up outside.
Once I turned my lights on.
I went to get a ice lolly as I was starting to sweat in my summer coat.
After I had that, I stood in the shade before I started my final shift of the week.
Let the fun start ....🎈
It started fine.
One car was trying to move forward as I was stood in the middle of the road, he tried to edge forward, while I walking back to the pavement, He had to stop quick!
He put his hand up, the woman sat in the passenger seat laughed, I growled at her when I finally got back on the pavement.
The clouds blocked the sun, so I didn't have the blazing sun on me.
Finished in one piece!
I chattered to my friend for 5 minutes.
The Caretaker of the hall asked how long will I be?
"Five minutes,"I replied.
He closed the bottom gate, another parent had parked their car in the car park. I put all my lollipop stuff in the car, and said goodbye to everyone.
As I went through the other gate, the parent of the car that was left in the car park, appeared and tried to talk to the caretaker not to close the gate so she could get her car out of the car park!
Back home for a ice lolly.
I picked up one son, and off to Sainsburys.
They had knocked things down for the garden.
I got two nice wind chimes.
I also got a plant for my dad's 80th Birthday.
Back home.
Put up the wind chimes I bought.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Now for some chinese...
Hubby dropped off one son to play football, then off to do the week's food shopping (and neighbour's shopping) with our other son.
I meanwhile had a soak in the bath.
Once out I chilled out reading today's newspaper.
