Nice Trousers!

What's the fastest car in the world?
A rental car - P.J.O'Rourke
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Had a warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
The thermal vest went on.
Now to get some fresh air...
I gave hubby a wet sloppy one before I left.
I went and got my newspaper and next door's magazine before I got on my lollipop coat.
Got back, had one winter coat and no gloves on.
Puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
Back to normal again...
Cars weren't stopping.
Out comes the big stick to give them BOINGs for not stopping.
Plenty of waves off car drivers while I watching go past past.
The blue mini driver who I have had trouble with in the past! Decides not to stop when I put my big stick out, goes underneath it, due to queue in front, she stopped in the  KEEP CLEAR space. 
Great!
The parent I was trying to cross over, goes  up to her driver's window and taps his head and mouths something to her.
When he gets back on the road,
I remind him that she was the one that mouthed "Arsehole" to me in December.
Besides that little bit of fun.
I finished in one piece.
I got chatting to one of my ex-customers who I used to deliver their mail too. I have a chat with him when he walks down and gets his newspaper.
They are celebrating their 47th Wedding Anniversary today.
"Well done!" I said.
Their kids paid for a nice hotel stay in a hotel just outside the village.
"Enjoy the rest of this special day,"I said. 
I went down to Co-op to get a few things.
Couldn't get down one aisle, as they were cleaning the fridges.
Got my bits I wondered.
Got home....
Coffee maker went on.
Put the flowers I bought for myself in a vase.
Loaded up the soup maker.
Now for coffee.
Then done some meditating until lunch.
Light lunch time....
I put the bins out ready for tomorrow.
I was in two minds to put on my sexy lumo trousers, as some forecasts says no rain and some said heavy showers.
Sod it, the trousers are going on!
Now for round 2.
I managed to get the last space in the hall car park. PHEW!
Puts on one winter hat, but leaves off the gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Those clouds don't look too good.
Rabbit Time!
My boss arrived for me to sign some forms.
She went off for a coffee until I started.
I said goodbye to my friends and started my shift.
A few cars had to have the BOINGs as they went straight under my stick.
My boss looked at my trousers and said:
"Have I given you them trousers?"
"No,I bought them myself!"
"Nice trousers!" She replied.
Shortly halfway through my shift,
the rains came down very heavy!
I forgot to put on my gloves....
Hometime, I said goodbye to my boss and off to Sexy Beast I went in the pouring rain.
I got out of the sexy lumo trousers.
Time for a brew!
Put the tea in the oven.
Gave the living room a tidy up.
Hubby came back and he had a sloppy wet one.
We had a nice cheese and cauliflower Quiche for tea.
A new series dropped on Netflix.
We watched the whole 2 episodes.
Great series.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
