Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year 
- Victor Borge
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Sexy yellow lumo trousers.
It's raining pretty hard outside.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
The hall where I normally park was closed. I parked around the corner. I got on my big boots, 2 hats and waterproof gloves.
I turn on my lights, and wait under shelter to
Starts my shift, as the rain is really coming down.
Once I do start, the fun starts.
Orange bread lorry, stops in the Keep Clear space, so I have to walk behind it, to stop the traffic. 
On woman in white volvo, gave me a look of hate when I stopped her, and she drove off in the wrong gear....
At least the rain stopped half way through my shift and the sun came out!
Finished in one piece.
Went back to Sexy Beast.
Just took off my winter coat.
It just poured down with rain.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Tumble drier goes on.
Coffee time.
Now to update the blog with 2 blog entries up to lunch.
Now to leave early to get a parking space.
Gets the last car parking space.
On goes two hats and gloves.
Puts on my lights.
Mince pie time.
Christmas market time.
The large gusts of wind isn't helping.
I say goodbye to my 2 friends and start my last shift of the week.
Car drivers are trying not to stop.
Until I lower my stick and they have to!
At least I finished in one piece!
Walks back to the car, and the car park is half empty now!
Nice pink clouds!
Back home I go.
Now to fry the beef, onions, mushrooms, garlic in the large pan.
Adds the vegetables to the casserole dish.
Into the oven it goes.
Finishes writing yesterday's blog post.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹when he comes home.

The shoe thats fits one person pinches another: there is no recipe for living that suits all cases - Carl Jung
Welcome to my ThursdayπŸ˜’
Hug with Brew.
Nice and cold out there....
Hubby went and got my newspaper.
Before he left for work, I gave him a wet sloppy πŸ’‹.
All the kids had the same πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
My lollipop boss paid a visit.
(See how I'm doing and the knee!)
Nice Xmas cards, hand gel, and facemasks.
I thanked her for coming round.
Put on the dishwasher. 
Now to write up 2 blog posts!
(Best luck with that I thought.)
First I had a snotty email from my late dad's Solicitor, stating that his bank hasn't closed his bank account down yet!
(Her fault for not sending off the form, I might add)
The bank will send the amount by cheque to her and then will have to wait 10 days for it to clear!
(Really, 5 working days normally)
Plus the amount she does have won't be released due her paying some "bills".....
So I can forget about seeing any funds until least February, the way the snail works!
The amount that my younger brother gave her after selling most of my late dad's stuff on ebay wasn't included in the figure.
I am suspecting he has been paid for the invoice he put in for doing a bit of painting in my dad's house
The other Prodical brother has probably been paid also for the invoice he put in too.
I phoned up younger brother, about what the email from the Solictor said.
 Ended up in a shouting match, and as everyone else has been putting invoices in, why can't I put the invoice for the skip I bought during lockdown? 
For all the stuff of my late dad's that I couldn't even give away! 
He would have took it away for the same price of the skip!
No brotherly love there then!
Considering he dumped it here, and disappeared into the distance!
I sent the Solictor the invoice and she will send me the cheque for the skip.
Younger brother went off on one then!
Calling me money obsessed and breaking  up the family for money!
This is the one, who wanted 48 hours notice to come round and put our dad to bed!
Pot calling the Kettle black comes to mind! 
I needed a early lunch after that!
After lunch and I had calmed down.
I carried on finishing writing my blog posts.
My children came home from school.
Telling them about the earlier conversation with my younger brother..
One said, "Mum, have you just realised that he is a arsehole?"
I laughed at that one.
I had some quiet time and caught up with all the newspapers from last Saturday.
Interesting reading.
Now to read todays!

Last night I was watching a Council Planning on You Tube to see if Lidl's can build a new branch in Redditch.
I won't be able to get my hour back for watching it!
I gave hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹ when he returned  from work.
Tea Time.
Roast Chicken Dinner with Crap Apple Jelly.
Then to catch up with 2 back to back episodes of series 19 Hell's Kitchen.
With some Sleep Tea.
So glad the Friday Feeling 🎈 is tomorrow!
