The Red Rim Has Steel Teeth!

Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps - Emo Philips
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Up early to do the Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew.
On goes the Thermal vest, as well as lots of layers.
Now to get out of the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I leave.
On goes the winter coat, 2 winter hats, and winter gloves.
I gets the newspaper.
Now to get my big stick.
I goes and puts on the my lights.
The traffic lights have finally gone \o/
The moon is still out!
Now let's go to work 🍭
I had a few late brakers.
The blue mini driver which called me an "Arsehole" last year. Did what she normally does, and fails to stop, and goes underneath my big stick.
However, the red rim around my stick is wearing out and suddenly is showing steel teeth!
As she drove past my raised stick,
The steel teeth scraped her paintwork as she went past!
It was witnessed by several parents.
Still had to give out a few more BOINGs.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Back home I go.
Coffee machine was put on.
Dishwasher put on.
Carrying on with some housework.....
But first time for a coffee!
Housework done up to lunchtime!
Liquid lunch.
No soup, just sandwiches↓
Now back out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the winter coat, 2 hats and winter gloves.
One of my friends was here already to meet me.
So we go and put on my lights.
Collect my big stick and wait in the square for my other friend. 
That low lying sun is a worry.
I told my friend about the encounter with the blue mini this morning.
He said,"If it comes up this afternoon, you can get the other side and she will have matching lines on each side!"
My other friend and we all had a good rabbit!
I said goodbye to friends.
The low lying sun in causing problems.
I gave out 4 BOINGs straight away as they drove under my big stick.
Few last minute brakers as well.
At least I finished in one piece!
Home time.
In need of brew.
I caught up with some blog posts.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served up.
Meat Free Stir-Fry
Yum.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

 - Fran Lebowitz
Welcome to my Tuesday 🎈
I had a nice hug and a cuppa↓
I gave everyone their sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Before I left the house↓

 
On the way to pick up my newspaper,
I had to swerve to avoid a car pulling out of a junction.
It happened again later on further up the road!
I had a quick read of the newspaper↓

After serving in the United States Air Force, Norris won many martial arts championships and later founded his own discipline Chun Kuk Do. Norris is a black belt in Tang Soo Do, Brazilian jiu jitsu and Judo.He is 80 years old 🎈


Today's tree pic↓
One car had to slam her brakes on, as my lollipop stick was the level with her face, only her windscreen was in the way.
One Aldi driver didn't stop again.
I told the parents,
"They have the same windscreen as everyone else, they are not different!"
It was bedlam,chaos  for half an hour. 
I survived!
While on the way to my coffee and chat.
I was stuck behind a mini doing 35 m.p.h in a 60.
When it was safe to, I overtook it.
Some good music to sing-a-long to↓


I finally made it to B3↓

Time for chat, and coffee↓
Giving me ideas↓
I said goodbye to my friend.
More singing to do↓
 I looked across the fields of fun↓
I left with a nice red face.
Back on the singing wheel🎑
 
Tables and chairs has been delivered↓

I have a much needed coffee.
Back out for my afternoon lollypop job.
It didn't forecast rain...
But it did rain.
Another car driver nearly had her face imprinted on my lollypop stick!
I survived.
Back home.
I got changed and went off to The Happy Place Of Work
With some great music↓

I came back to enjoy some nice tea.

Now off to do my other job with some great music↓
 I gets back home....
Hung up the hot rollers..
 Hopefully I have a better Hump Day tomorrow🐫

Someone was liking my butterfly scarf a bit too much..
