Fighting For That Councillor Tin Hat!

Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
No sunrise :(
However older son became a Councillor for Church Hill.
Woo hoo :)
There is now two Councillors in the house.
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest still goes on.
Final day at work!
Time to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I leave.
On goes the Summer hat and summer coat.
I walk down the road to turn on my lights.
Buys the newspaper.
Swaps the newspaper for my big stick.
Goes and turns on my other lights.
Let's go to work....🍭
It was a bit quiet for traffic.
(Not like yesterday!)
Last minute braking and BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Off home I go.
There were two Council vans over the drive.
I went round to my neighbour's house and two workmen were in there deciding on what room to start on.
I asked if they could just move the van up a bit so I could get my car on the drive.
They told me the kitchen has to be ripped out, and the shed has to go.
The van was moved down and I parked on the drive.
Now for coffee!
There was lots of drilling, and banging coming from next door.
(Wait to see if the bamboo is going to be chopped down)
Household chores done.
Downloaded photos for yesterday's blog.
Liquid lunch time.
It was forecasted to rain at the time I start the afternoon shift.
It was too warm to wear those lumo trousers.
Those dark clouds look grim↓
Had to listen to a good song on repeat,
Can you guess which one it was?
(It's at the end of this blog post)
I puts on my Summer Coat and Summer hat on.
Goes and puts on both sets of lights.
I visited the Charity Shop for a rabbit..
The Corner shop was closed to get the Post Office fitted in it.
(Post Office opens on May 19th)
Goes back to Sexy Beast.
I takes the lining out of my winter coat.
I put that on, and my waterproof shoes as those dark clouds are coming over.
None of my friends, came for a rabbit.
I'm need of a Boost now! 
One school was let out early.
I goes over to my spot.
Soon as I started the rain came down....
It rained for ten minutes.
Stopped.
Still had cars stopping in the Keep Clear space!
Lots of BOINGs given out for cars not stopping.
Then it started to rain again!
Grrrrr
Finished in one piece.
I got talking to someone about how much fun I am going to have being an Councillor for over an hour!
Wishes them a good Bank Holiday Monday.
Back home I go.
I went to see what the Council had been doing to next door's house.
All the kitchen cabinets had been ripped out.
The three interior doors were outside.
The fireplace was ripped out.
There was a crab in a bag on the floor↓
And some Cinnamon sticks if anyone is interested?
Gets the tea on the go.
Results from Studley North.
6 of the 8 will be Councillors  on the Parish Council.
 Hubby has a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ when he comes home.
Fish and chips time.
Yum!
Looked into today's newspaper.

Now to enjoy some Friday Feeling in a warm bed 🎈

"Pieces Of 8"

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating 
- Oscar Wilde
Welcome to my Sunday🎈
I had a much needed lie-in.
I enjoyed a cuddle and cup of tea in bed.
 We had more snuggles after breakfast.
Then we got up, got dressed.
Time to leave the house↓
 I really do hope they have got what I want in Lidl...
It is in the store today↓
 They got one in!
Next stop was a visit to Dunelm↓
 I enjoyed a mocha and tea cake↓
 The view from my seat↑
A really great card I found↓
 I got a pink pom pom blanket £5
Small box for 75p
3 pillow cases £3 each
Pom Pom strings 75p each
Pisces mug £1.25
The Parrot I got from Lidl was at home with everyone else↓
 
 My new 70's CD arrived.
I used my new cup I bought from Dunelm↓
  Hubby took our kids to see my dad in Hospital.
I meanwhile had school clothes to wash and dry.
Tidy up around my computer....
 Long John Baldry, English blues vocalist,would have been 79 years old 🎈

Randy VanWarmer was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist died aged 48 in 2004

Danny Woods, American musician (CEO of the Board), died at the age 75 in 2018
When hubby came back, he said the progical brother popped into see our dad last night as well as the younger brother.
However suddenly getting hold of my younger brother is getting more difficult as he is not replying to his text messages on when he is going to visit our dad next...... 
It was unlike last Thursday afternoon...
When he was speed-texting my hubby and me all the time!
Tea is served...↓
 The tumble drier working overtime!
All ready to mount that Wobbly Work Wheel🎑

Name That Singer!

A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way - Caroline Gordon
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling🎈
 It was nice to start the day with a hug and a cup of tea!
I gave hubby a big sloppy πŸ’‹ before he left the house..
We had lots to do today.
While kids were getting up and having breakfast.
I had coffee and nibble.
 The kids sorted out some outgrown uniform to give into the uniform bank which is on tomorrow.
Now for some fresh air.
 
 Enjoying listening to the CD's again!
We parked in the college car park
 Off to drop off the bag of uniform.
It's already getting of loads of uniform in.
 
 We visited the food stall on the market.
Back to mum's singing party...
Even my youngest son knew the other song being played..
Then the stall holder said to me,
"Who is singing this?"
 After singing along for 7 seconds, I replied.
"Cat Stevens!"
"Correct, you know your music!" He said.
*My kids were proud of me!*
Off to have an coffee to get over my excitement!
Back home in the rain.
 My new bedroom sign has arrived!
 Early lunch↓
 I caught up with some:
Then off to my happy place of work
 I came back to drop off our kids to help sort the uniform out ready for the uniform bank tomorrow.
While I put the evening meal in the oven.
I enjoyed a taste of the Friday Feeling 🎈
 Once everyone came back.
Evening Meal was served and ate up.
I had to go and do my final job of the day...
With some good music!
Once I got back,
I kicked off the shoes.
Caught up with the news.
Then for snuggles in a warm bed with hubby!
