Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!

Life  is painful, nasty and short.. in my case it  has only been painful and nasty - Djuna Barnes
Welcome to my Tuesday 👿👿👿👿😡😡😡
Nice warm hug to start the day with :)
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Now out of the house I go...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
It wasn't that warm.
On goes the two winter hats and gloves.
I turn on my lights.
Now for the fun....🍭
I only had one car to give the BOING to.
One stroppy car driver didn't want to stop, put her foot down, when I was starting to put the big stick out, she went a bit of further down the road, and then had to wait to get round a parked  car!
Nice to have chat with parents and people walking their dogs and getting their newspapers!
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper, on the way to visit my mum and dad.
I had a shock when I got there!
All the flowers that was on their grave was put by the bench???????
I put the flowers back.
The blue vase, the new flowers I bought them at Christmas, the new basket of daffs, the pot of roses, pink roses and the sun charging yellow flower had gone!
This what the grave looked liked on Saturday when I left it.
I was so angry 😡😡😡😡😡
That gold digging younger brother didn't even bring any flowers for Mother's Day.
It looks like he has took off things I bought for our parent's grave and put them somewhere else!
Tight fisted isn't a word I would call it!
I needed to unwind my anger....
Time to do some singing on the way back home...
Coffee machine went on...
Time to write yesterday's blog post and do some singing along with it!
Time for some liquid lunch.....
I sent my younger gold-digging brother a stern email. 
Wasting my time with him,
Drawing a very long line underneath it.
Now for part 2..
Big big sun glasses time.
On goes the summer coat and hat.
I turns on my lights.
Meets up with my friends for a nice rabbit..
Sits on the bench to soak up some rays.
Says goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
The temperature was going down, and it was getting cold!
Pity I left my gloves in the car!
Had no trouble stopping the cars this afternoon.
Quite amazed was I!
Finished in one piece.
Hometime.
Needed a much need brew to warm up!
Made a Onion and Walnut Tarte Tatin.
The only thing I forgot to add was the Dolcelatte!
I did Spinach, mushrooms, red onion and garlic, lentils to it.
Hubby came home.
Nice big wet sloppy one ...
Tea is ready.
Yum!
Afterwards, time to look in today's newspaper.

It Has To Happen To Me!

Anything you buy will be in the sale next week - Erma Bombeck
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 👽
Nearly oversleeps....AAAhhhhh!
Quick warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Hubby has day off as we have people coming in to check the boiler and all the plugs in the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 
It's freezing!
Good job I covered my car up!
The big big sunglasses come out again!
 
With 2 winter hats and gloves.
Puts on my light...
Now let's go to work...🍭
Now the fun starts!
A black BMW stops in the Keep Clear area, and I can't cross the kids over. I walk behind it and stop the traffic that way!
My boss comes, I give her, her card and present.
I tell her about the fun I have been having.
Especially the lorry not stopping last week and being called an arsehole the other week.
My job never gets boring!
I had a look of hate from one car driver who didn't like stopping for me! Then 5 minutes the same driver went past me again!
Still not looking happy!
I wished my boss a happy retirement.
Finished in one piece.
I nipped into the nearby Bakery for some treats for later.
Then I paid a visit into the nearby Co-op.
The fun I had in there....
I picked up a Sloth...
It's the first thing I tried to pay for.
The till wouldn't let me.
Even the man came over and it wouldn't let him either.
Goes over to the manned till to pay for it instead.
The Cashier coughed.
The customer asked if she is alright?
"I have had it since my Booster!" She replied.
"I was not feeling very well after mine either,"the customer replied.
"That's great, I am having mine on Saturday,"I replied.
"I better shut up then!" The customer said and walked off after paying for her goods.
I paid for my Sloth and went back to pay for my goods at the self-service till.
After scanning all my shopping.
My card was declined!
Puts the pin in on the second attempt!
Accepted!
Goes out to Sexy Beast.
Some has parked a bit close to my car!
I put the shopping in the passenger foot well.
I had to do a very deep breath, and put my door up against the car's wing mirror to get in!
Just put on my seat belt, and the car next to me, reverses out and leaves!
Gets to the shop to get my newspaper.
More fun in there, and it not even ten am!
While I am in the queue, two likely lads tries to push in, they have the look off me, and then they queue behind me. Then someone else tries to do the same, until I cough and he gets the hints to join the back of the queue.
The man in front wanted a litre bottle of Bells Whiskey.
They didn't have any, so he had two 70L bottles instead.
Gets back home finally!
Hubby says no one has came yet.
I puts on the Coffee machine.
The Plumber arrived.
Not in a very good mood.
It didn't help the Circuit board on the Boiler blew!
He had to go and get another one.
When he came back, he fitted it, tried the heating, but just looked at my gas cupboard.
He put down on the form we need a upgrade on the boiler as it is coming up to 16 years old next year!
The Job site wants me to chase up the cleaning job I applied for on Monday....
It is still being advertised, I haven't heard nothing, and probably won't!
I has a quick lunch.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leaves.
On goes the winter hat and gloves.
One of my friends arrives early.
I gives him the nibbles to look over while I go and turn on my lights. 
Both friends are there.
They have their nibbles, I am having mine, when I get home.
Low lying sun time.
The Christmas Market is on tomorrow.
I will have to come early in the afternoon, as it's going to be a pig for parking.
I say goodbye to everyone.
Now to start my shift.
I had some bad looks of some drivers as they didn't like stopping!
One Purple Nissan Qushqai went speeding under my stick, going about 60 m.p.h!
One car parked in the keep clear space, so I had to walk behind them to cross over kids and parents.
Then it was hometime for me!
On the way home, a truck pulled out and wasn't stopping!
I had to quickly swirve to avoid being hit.
I threw in a blast of the horn for free.
I must have seen it being driven off after being stolen, as the above picture was put on social media saying it had been stolen. It was involved in an accident later on in the evening.The driver did a runner after the accident.
(So I was lucky I didn't have an accident with it!)
More fun later on....
One van signalled wrongly around a traffic island, then was going 20 m.p.h, and signelled at the last minute turning left. Then stuck behind another car doing 20 m.p.h in a 40 m.p.h.
I had a DPD van stuck up my arse for the rest of my journey!
I was glad to get home!
Nice warm hug and kiss went I got home.
Plus a brew and nibble as well!
What a surprise the firm hired by the council to come check all the plugs in the house, didn't turn up! No phone call or nothing!
While I was attempting to write Wednesday's blog post, hubby was catching up with the Muppet show on Netflix.
Roger Moore was on one episode.
Time to put the tea in the oven.
We watched:
Agatha Christie: 100 Years of Poirot and Miss Marple
Tea is served.
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Then we watch 2 episodes of the first series of  "Fame".
Hubby was well pissed off when he was singing along with Hi Fidelity, when the advert break cut off the song after 1 minute...
The first series is going to end with a sad moment, I might have to leave the room when this following song plays....
(As my husband keeps asking when "Starmaker gets played in this series.I remember watching it the first time it was shown, when I was 10 years old, it was sad then.)
Sleep Tea Time.
The Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
