When It Rains, It Pours!

 I once gave a waiter a tip - I told him never to step off a moving bus - Groucho Marx 
Welcome to a wet Friday Feeling 🎈
Hug time!
Brew with breakfast.
Wakes up the kids ready for school time!
I give everyone their sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
I looked outside...
Raining again...
Sexy lumo trousers go on again!
The rain doesn't like stopping anytime soon.
All ready for the morning stint in the rain.
Now to turn on my lights...
Tree picture.
Now for the fun in the rain.
One woman car driver, didn't want to wait for a child to cross over, and put her foot down while I was stood in the middle of the road!
One car driver had to slam her brakes on as my lollipop stick would have to hit her windscreen.
My lollipop boss came to check my eyesight.
I read the car's license plate from my spot fine.
One car failed to stop and carried on under my lollipop stick!
No lambo today :(
Finished in one piece JUST!
Back home in the rain.
Quick coffee and apple.
I wrapped our Henry Hoover in a bin bag so I didn't want it to get wet putting it in the Sexy Beast.
Off to do the house clean.
Chat, clean and coffee. 
Back home in the rain again!
Nice hot soup for lunch!
One of the Solicitors wanted to see my late mum's death certificate...
I didn't have it, as my younger brother had put a receipt into the estate for opening my late dad's safe (£78), he has got it. I passed on my brother's email address.
Back out in the rain with sexy lumo trousers again for round 2 of lollipop 🍭
It still rained throughout my shift.
I finished in one piece.
One of the parents gave me some spare plants.
Crumpets, coffee and apricot time!
Now out for some 60's Big Tune.
Singing in the rain on the way to work.
Get's in.
I send in the receipt for the toilet gel I bought yesterday, via email.
I load them up in the skip.
I got a reply back, saying I won't be given the money back for the gel I bought.
Oh dear, the gel went back into the boot of Sexy Beast.
So the toilets had no toilet cleaner going in them tonight!
I asked about the two dodgy vacuum cleaners being replaced with another one. The answer I got via email, I have to try to unblock one vacuum cleaner, and the filter might be cleaned due to it overheating, no reply on what to do with the loose plug!
I really hope the £57.20 they took out of my wages last month, gets put back in wages next week and the £54 I spent on cleaning items for the house I clean.
Let's hope they use the tax code the tax office send them twice and I send it them as well
 July 19th I will find out, that I will be out of this job.......!!!
The music went on, and on to cleaning I go.
I looked down to the bottom before I started to clean the handrails from the top.
It's still raining outside...
I was given a polite note about given notice when I run low on toilet cleaner.
I gave my answer to it before I left!
More 60s music to sing along with in the rain on the way home.
Back home finally!
I have a nice salad meal for tea.
While hubby and son went food shopping.
I looked into today's newspaper.
Gerard Hugh "Leo" Sayer  is an English-Australian singer-songwriter musician and entertainer whose singing career has spanned four decades. He is now an Australian citizen and resident. He is 73 years old 🎈 
When hubby and son came back, the shopping was put away. 
Sleep Tea Time.
Now to enjoy the last of the Friday Feeling 🎈

My House Isn't That Bad!

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? - 
Abraham Lincoln.
Welcome to my Tuesday fun πŸ’«
Nice big hug and brew to start the day with.
Early morning wake up call for my kids.
I gave hubby a wet one πŸ’‹ before he left to go to work.
The kids had the same before they left for school πŸ’‹πŸ’‹.
Before I started anything.
I did a bit of walking up and down the path.
Loaded up the dishwasher and put it on.
Now for coffee....
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
The playlist was shuffled and singing helped with sense of humour I need to write the blog post. 
Just 2 posts short of 2400 published blog posts! 
Trying to find that seahorse pattern.
One was $5!!!
I finally found one!
It was free!
Let's see what I can do with that!
Got in touch with my union on whether I have to change from one county to another...
Waiting for the response to it.
By time I finished writing the blog post.
I had a early lunch.
I had to click and collect some shopping from Asda.
(My son has his GCSE food assessment this Friday, so he needed more things.
He is practicing again tomorrow at home to get under the 2 hours he needs.)
Hands were washed and I wore my facemask when I collected it. I was lucky, there was only another couple there loading up their car.
I went past my late dad's house, and the driveway was still full of cars!
Back home.
Tea at 3
My magazine came, and time for a quick read of it before I start on the tea.
Another meat-free tea tonight.
Hubby came home.
He had a sloppy wet one from me.
I had a big hug in return....

Tea is served up!
We caught up with Judge Rinder.
The we caught up with the first episode of the second series of Hoarders Homes:
The episode was called: No Room to Move
We downloaded the first series.
Then we watched the first episode:
Landfill In My Living Room.
Sleep tea time.
We watched half of the second episode called:
Trapped By My Trash.
Both my parents were hoarders. 
I do hoard but not to the state of not be able to get into my house!!!
As the younger brother said last year just after our dad passed away...
"We have to clear out 50 years of crap out of the house!"
Nice as normal coming from him!
He even said of my house:
"You could fill a six bedroomed house with your crap, and still need a bigger house!" 
I won't comment on his hoarding problem just yet.....😢😢 
Let's hope we have a sunny Hump tomorrow 🐫

Quick coffee↓
Out to get the newspaper in the cold.
Changed the CD over...
I got the newspaper, and saw that the limo was back on my late dad's drive....
Back home in a nice warm Sexy Beast.
Still cold outside.
