The Yellow Peril Returns!

 The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling ๐ŸŽˆ
I was so stiff from sleeping on the sofa last night.
I woken up by sleeping beauty....
While he was making breakfast, I got dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Time for...
We did all the Heardles...
My favourite was Heardle 60s...
Now to leave house for job...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I fetched the newspaper and next door's neighbour's magazine.
It was going to rain, 
On goes the winter coat, with summer hat and no gloves.
I turn on my lights...
Let's hope the car drivers are gentle with me after the last few days I have had!
No chance!
One car went straight under my big stick, and was inches away from his windscreen.
I was in the middle of the road, and the Learner left it a bit too late too brake.
An emergency stop was done, inches away from  me!
Many of parents were glad to see me back.
They asked how the funeral went.
I told them what went on, and they couldn't believe it.
"I won't be seeing them again anytime soon \o/" 
I said.
Then a BMW driver tried her luck!
My big stick was out in front,
Windscreen or stop
Emergency stop at the last minute.
I safely got back to the pavement.
The rain was carrying on.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Goes back out...
Coffee Date.
I chats with the current postman to find out what's happening with the repick.
The whole office has had a repick, all depends on how long you have been there.
I would have been there for 32 years....
Now for coffee!
My friend joined for a good yak!
Another coffee and nibble.
Yum Yum.
Enjoyed the chat, coffee and nibbles.
Now back home.
Didn't feel like soup.
Turkey and Mustard sandwich.
Now out for part 2 of the day.
Various weather reports say either cloudy or rain.
I got out my summer coat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits for my friends to arrive. 
My friends appear.
Time for a rabbit...
Wished them a good weekend.
Now to do the final shift of the week.
Oh dear back to it again.
Nearly clipped a windscreen as it went under my big stick.
One man is a red car went under the stick.
I did the BOING, he turned into the side road.
Kept shouting at me!
I crossed more kids over the road.
He then came back for another go at me.
He parked on double yellow lines and delivered two bags of food at the house opposite me.
He kept shouting at me, I ignored him and carried on doing my job.
After that fun episode, nothing else happened.
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
In need of a brew!
Now to get the blog updated.
Wrote about yesterday.
Now to put the blog back on!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one when he comes home.
He does the tea....
Tea is done.
Yum!

Read of the newspaper
Donald Sutherland, is a Canadian actor whose film career spans more than seven decades. Sutherland has been nominated for eight Golden Globe Awards, winning two for his performances in the television films Citizen X (1995) and Path to War (2002); the former also earned him a Primetime Emmy Award. An inductee of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Canadian Walk of Fame, he also received a Canadian Academy Award for the drama film Threshold (1981).

In 2017, he received an Academy Honorary Award for his contributions to cinema
He is 85 years old ๐ŸŽˆ
Spencer Davis (born Spencer David Nelson Davies, ) is a Welsh musician and multi-instrumentalist, and the founder of the 1960s beat band The Spencer Davis Group. "Davies" is pronounced "Davis" in Wales, but would be misread as "Davees" in the US, so professionally he dropped the E from the spelling to avoid confusion.He is 81 years old๐ŸŽˆ 
 
After that.
Load up dishwasher.
Tidy up the kitchen, moved on the living room.
Emptied bins.
Finally sat down down to write yesterday's blog post.....

I sent the seller a message about the situation.

I was waiting for a delivery....
When hubby went outside,
He found it, in this state↓ 
 The bottle of Elderflower had broken in the box and ruined some of the items instead↓
 The packet of batteries had fell out in the road and had been run over....
The company wasn't happy that the box was delivered like that. I got a partial refund on the items that was ruined.
Speaking of orders.
My 6 bottles of Zoflora I ordered last week, was delivered up the road.My hubby has been trying to contact any of the people living in the flats by pressing the front door bell.
No one has answered the door :(
