Charging Up The Mouth Battery!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
It's still quite cold for the time of the year!
Thermal vest still stops on!
Breakfast and Brew.
Grabbed my coat and hat.
Time for work!
I gives hubby a wet sloppy one 💋 before I left.
Gets to work.
Still too cold to wear my Summer coat.
On goes the winter coat, summer hat, with gloves. Walks down the road to turn on the lights and back up to get my newspaper.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Off to turn on my lights.
One boing on a flat back lorry that failed to stop, and went straight under my stick!
Lots of last minute braking on the otherside as well.
At least I survived!
Back home.
Coffee machine went on, as well as the washing machine, twice.
Nice bit of French roast coffee...
I hung the washing on the line.
It's tomorrow I am to have to watch, as it is forecasting rain tomorrow dinnertime!
I wrote 2 blog posts up to Liquid Lunch.
Now to enjoy a CD I bought from the Charity Shop. Some good tunes on there...
One song had to go on repeat on the way to work↓
The car park was half empty.I was expecting a full car park, as there was a Council Meeting on.
I put on my Summer hat and Summer coat.
I saw the Parking Attendant walking up the road,
I tried to catch up with him but he put his foot down.
I turned on my lights and will catch up with him later.
I caught up with two of my friends. We walked down to the Charity Shop. I finally got a DVD I have been looking for. Turned on my lights and walked back to SEXY BEAST.
I caught up with a fellow Councillor who was in a bad mood after the Council meeting finished.
They wouldn't tell me what was in the meeting.
"I will wait for the minutes."I replied.
Now to enjoy a Boost of energy!
Collected my big stick, and went back over to the square for a rabbit with friends.
Once it was time for me to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
I crossed one friend over the road, when the car behind started to drive at me while I was in the middle of the road.
She slammed on the brakes, I turned round and mouthed to her,
"What are you doing?" and walked back to the pavement. She put her foot down and drove off!
One white car had a BOING for failing to stop and going under my big stick!
The Parking Attendant put two parking tickets on two cars parked on the single line as you can't park on it between 3pm - 4pm.
One parent had a go at him for not putting tickets parked on zig zags.
As I crossed that parent over,
The Parking Attendant replied:
"Nice to be told how to do my job!"
Until signs go up to make it offence not to park on Zig Zags lines he can't ticket any of them.
I told him if he down early in the afternoon, I still owe him a coffee. I crossed him over and he carried on looking for bad parkers!
Speaking of bad parkers on double yellow lines.
The Postman came over to see if the rumours were true about me being a Councillor.
That rumour was true, and I am on two Parish Councils.
The X19 just got past his van!
Once I finished in one piece, I got chatting to a member of Royal Mail who was seeing what the parking was like, as the Post Office is coming back into Nisa on May 19th.
We got chatting about old staff who we worked with, who has since died. We had a good chat for half an hour.
I walked back to Sexy Beast and got chatting to the Head of the Parish Council for 20 minutes.
The Clerks were busy on a Zoom meeting, so I would send them a email when I get home.
Finally got home.
Brew time.
While hubby went to get a take-away, I went to have a chat with someone about a dog.
I was there for over hour and half.
When I got back, I had to warm my take-away up.
Still got things to do.
Went back out to fuel up Sexy Beast.
I came back.
Quickly looked into today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1980:
Blondie - Call Me 
US No.1 on this day in 1958:

I was getting tired, so only done two Heardles.

Now to charge up the mouth battery!

Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
The rain is back and so is the sexy lumo trousers!
Breakfast and Brew time.

Grabs my rain mac and out I go.
It didn't help I tried to open Sexy Beast with my hubby's car keys!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
On goes the waterproofs.
Turns on one set of lights and gets my newspaper.
Swaps the newspaper for my big stick.
As it was raining quite hard, I didn't take my normal tree photo.
Walked down to my spot in the rain.
Fun times ahead...
First one parks on the double yellow lines
Then another one↓
Another one parked in front.
I missed the 4th one as it only stopped for five minutes and drove off.
As for the car situation, plenty of last minute brakers, and three BOINGs on my side!
Going fast in rain is never a good idea!
At least I finished in one piece.
Back to Sexy Beast. 
Took the waterproofs off.
Back home. 
Off went the sexy lumo trousers.
Quick coffee.
Then back out to try out a new hairdressers.
Nipped into Co-op first.

Going to have a very late lunch!
Didn't have no soup.
Rolling roll time instead!
Back out with those sexy lumo trousers.
On goes the waterproofs again.

Still having limbo drivers going under my big stick!
That rain is holding off...
I got finished, took off my waterproofs and homeworld bould I go.
