Too Much Finger!

 Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognise it as such - Henry Miller
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start the hump with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
As well as layers!
No Frost last night,
So no uncovering of Sexy Beast. 
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I left.
I still had 2 winter hats and the big big gloves on.
Walked up and waited to turn on my lights.
I turned them on,
Now ready to roll 🍭
First Limbo Dancer of the the morning was only going 10 m.p.h but went right under my stick!
The Silver BMW was next, he wagged his finger at me as he went under my stick.
The third Limbo dancer, the car driver attempted to stop, decided no too, and carried on under the stick!
Cars were braking the last minute!
In the final 15 minutes of my shift, I was waiting to cross anyone over, when a red Toyota with 2  men aged 20+ sat in there.
The driver flicked me his third finger at me when he drove past!
"What have I done to deserve this?"
Lucky for him, I remembered his license plate number!
After I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
Got home.
I put on the coffee machine.
I phoned up my new boss to report and give her the license plate number. She will pass it onto the Police.
She had 2 reports of angry car drivers getting out of their car verbal abusing the Lollipop men/woman!
On the phone for 45 minutes.
I asked my kids would they get out of their cars and have a word at me....while doing my lollipop job.
"No way" came their reply
I phoned hubby up to tell him what happened earlier.
5 minutes on the phone.
Phoned my friend to tell he what happened.
45 minutes on the phone.
Coffee time.
I ran out of time to write my blog post from yesterday.
Now to enjoy some soup!
The sun is back out....
Time to wear the big big sunglasses..
Time for part two.
Still had two winter hats and gloves on.
Turned on my lights.
Had a little rabbit with my friends.
I said Goodbye to them when I started.
Low lying sun was a bit of a problem.
I told a few parents about the finger problem from this morning.
They couldn't believe it!
Still had a couple of car failing to stop,
Just as I finished, my friend appeared again with his dog.
Walks back to the car for more RABBIT.
Once finishing yakking, time for me to go home.
I covered up Sexy Beast, as there is another frost due tonight.
Then time to peel some potatoes and get the tea on the go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he came home.
They had sausages,mash,and peas.
I had the veggie option.
Quick look into the newspaper.
At least I shop at Waitrose sometimes!

Amazing Who You Meet At The.....

 I'm on a whisky diet. I've lost three days already - Tommy Cooper
Welcome to my Sunday πŸ’—
Brew with hug.
Our son had his Birthday request read out on the local radio. He also had a Beatles record played for him as well...
Now to check the tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Then off to say hello to my parents...
While we were sat down on the bench, my brother paid for:
Someone parked behind Sexy Beast and went over to put flowers on the grave, of the man I chatted to last March before the first Lockdown.
When he came away, I told him I chatted to his dad before the first lockdown, a good 45 minute chat we had, and then next time I came up here, he had passed away.
His son said, it was the first year anniversary of his dad passing away.
(He got a bit upset)
If he wondered who had put flowers on his dad's grave last year, it was me. 
He thanked me for that.
I said I would water the plants if they are dry at the weekends I come up.
He thanked me for doing that.
Then off to Co-op to get some bargains.
A couple had two baskets of reduced food.
We didn't need that much.
We only got a bit.
Time for coffee!
Back home for lunch.
I read today's newspaper.
Then to write yesterday's blog post.
After that, I put tonight's tea in oven for later.
Then we caught up with last week's Dragon's Den.
Tea is served!
I got my stuff ready for tomorrow's 
"Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑"
A early night is called for......

I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Out for some more needed fresh air,
Ride in Sexy Beast. 
I gets the newspaper before it gets busy.
Limo and sister in law's car is still parked on my late dad's drive as I went past.
Much needed coffee 
Then back out for a much needed sing-a-long..
Quick look in the newspaper.

I looked over the fields of fun.
I had some fun looking after the children at dinnertime.
Back into Sexy Beast to guess the year...
Back home.
Light lunch..
Deciding on what films to watch this afternoon.
I first chose:
Changed my mind after 5 minutes to watch:
Really good film.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet kiss when he came home.
Now to serve up the tea!
Gammon with stuffing with onion gravy.
One film we are going to watch tomorrow which looks quite good is:
I found this on the Redditch Labour Facebook page:
Redditch Labour Party are pleased to see some information on the contents of the Town Deal bid - the maximum amount which can be granted is £25 million, and we hope that Redditch is successful in achieving that maximum amount.
The bid consists of the following proposals.
πŸ”˜ £8.5m to improve the train station area with a 2 storey building, open space and improved car parking, taxi rank and bus service area.
πŸ”˜ £8m for digital support to businesses including a 5G test bed and office / workshop space.
πŸ”˜ £4.1m to demolish the library building to create a public square. (NOTE - no information on a new location for the library if this is approved.)
πŸ”˜ £3m to improve Unicorn Hill, Church Green and Evesham Walk - including “street furniture” and “waymarking.”
πŸ”˜ £1.1m to improve eco projects mostly electric charging points. (This is across residential areas and Abbey Stadium as well as in the town centre.) 
£4.1 million needed to demolish our library?????
Our Library houses the Job Centre, computers, and clubs.
It is our community hub!
Going to replace it with a public square?????
No news where it is going to go in the future!
It's been there for over 40 years!!!
I let rip on the Labour facebook and Conservative facebook telling it is a stupid mistake. No thoughts no planning.....
We carried on watching 
With my Sleep Tea.
Going to try out my new boxes of grey tomorrow↓
We are expecting Storm Christoph tomorrow!
Will I need to row a boat to get the newspaper on Hump Day 🐫
