Relax, Don't Do It!

Appreciate me now, and avoid the rush - Ashleigh Brilliant
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Warm hug to help the Friday Feeling along.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest with lots of layers.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Now to uncover Sexy Beast.
I had to park around the corner as the Hall's gates were closed.
2 winter hats and thermal gloves went on.
On the way to turning on my lights, a black car went past me, making a terrible from the engine, and they didn't have their headlights on either!
While waiting to turn them on. A long based truck came out of the junction with no lights on, and had properly scraped his windscreen. I call it a tank!
After I turned on my lights.
Time to walk down to my spot!
Now for the fun to start!
One Black BMW raced past me at about 60 m.p.h and came back down the road at the same speed!
Considering it is a 30 m.p.h zone!
I just had 3 BOINGS on the car roofs when they went under my stick!
I finished in one piece.
As I was going back to Sexy Beast, I got chatting to some parents I cross over.
"Are you going home for a hot coffee?" They asked.
"Going to change out of this coat, and have a browse in the charity shop." I replied.
"See you later," They said.
I got changed and walked down to the Charity Shop. I got a nice soup bowl for hubby
(To take his soup in to work)
Back to Sexy Beast.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home. 
I put on the coffee machine.
Unpacked all my goodies.
Then I peeled some potatoes for tea tonight.
Put the faggots and pies in the oven.
Now for coffee!
I got yesterday's blog post wrote.
Something different for lunch besides Soup.
Cheese and cucumber sandwiches.
Now out for the final afternoon shift.
Winter hats, and thermal gloves went back on.
Turned on my lights.
Met up with my friends for a little bit of a rabbit.
Just before I started, I wished them both a good weekend.
Now to get on with the final shift of the week!
I said hello to two women I say hi to in the afternoons.
I said to them,"To do some relaxing this weekend....!"
"Fat chance of that,"Replied one.
Then I sang the following to them as they started to walk off:
"Relax, don't do it
When you wana go to it
Relax, don't do it"
They thought it was funny ;)
I wished the parent who lost her dad just before a happy weekend in the circumstances.
She is cleaning out her late dad's flat this weekend.
I said, "My brother dropped nearly all the contains of my late dad's 3 bedroomed house at my house last year!"
"Bloody hell!" She said.
"That's what I said!" I replied.
I finished in one piece.
Home time!
I put the oven on as well as the potatoes.
Time for a brew!
Hubby comes back and has a wet sloppy πŸ’‹
Time for Faggots and Mash.

Goodbye To August!

My wife was looking through a fashion magazine, and she saw a fur coat. She said, "I want that." So I cut it out and gave it to her - Tommy Cooper

Last day of August!
That went quick!
It's my youngest brother's 37th Birthday tomorrow.......
Not long before I go back to work....
Now to get some gardening done...
My postman gave me my parcel I should have had on Saturday.
His excuse was the trackers came in AFTER he went out, he looked at it when he came back in, and thought she can wait for it until Tuesday.
Funny when I worked for Royal Mail, you had to wait for the trackers to come in..
(Must have changed the rules since I left)
Back to sorting out the gardening.
My Trellises arrived.
I put them in the garden.
At least the flowers can grow up them.
Watered all the plants.
Sorted out the bit of garden for the time being.
