That's A Big Hedgehog!

What a nasty mind you have Bruce.
Where did you learn to think like a woman? -
 Frank G. Slaughter
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with.
Brew with breakfast.
It was still a bit windy outside.
On goes that Thermal vest.
I looks through the net curtain covering the front door and notices a large round shape on the front lawn.
That's a big hedgehog!
(A bit difficult to see in the dark)
I gets ready to leave and see what is on the lawn.
It turned out to be my purple topiary ball that hangs by my front door!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
There was a chance of rain,
So on went the boots, as well as winter hat and gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now onto the fun with my big stick 🍭
I had a few BOINGs to deal with.
One van driver gave a black look after he went around the bus and had to stop to let me cross some kids over!!!
I swore blind that blue 20 plate Skoda went past, that I have been hunting down since last year, when she drove around my hand and up the pavement.It might help if I had remembered the licence plate the first time!
It did start to rain just before I finished.
Finished in one piece!
I collected the newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Knock on the door, the Hermes delivery man was glad to find me, he had been all over the estate to find me.
(I forgot to add house to the address)
I also had a knock of the door, it was my Postman.
(At least he has no trouble finding my house)
I was supposed to have a delivery of anti-hippo wrinkle eye cream.
The box had been damaged in the delivery process, so was send back to Amazon.
I just had a tiny nib of cream left!!
Put another order in, so hopefully it will here tomorrow in one piece!
Going back to my Dunelm order from Christmas Eve......
No refund after I requested one 3 weeks ago.
Fobbed off left, right and centre.
Friday's message was waiting to hear from the store's manager to give the ok for a refund.
Today's message: Can't find your order at all!
We have to see the IT team.
(Funny I have a record of the amount going out of my bank account and the order number!)
Not having much luck at all with this order!
Coffee time!
I had a chat with my friend up to lunchtime.
Time for some homemade soup.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
No low lying sun to worry about!
On goes my winter hats and gloves.
I saw my friend and his dog going down the alley.
(I will meet up with him later on)
I go and put on my lights.
My friends arrive for a rabbit.
We all say what we have been doing the weekend etc.
That half an hour went quick.
Said goodbye to everyone.
Now for fun number 2 🍭
Plenty of BOINGs given out!
Some looks could kill from some car drivers when they have to stop!
The sun poked through the clouds at one point.
Low lying sun alert!
At least I finished in one piece!
Hometime.
Time for a quick brew...
I wrote and published yesterday's blog.
Now to get on with meat-free Stir Fry.
Yum
Afterwards to look in today's newspaper.
