Pass Me A Crystal!

The way I look at it, I'm a human being first and gorgeous second - Harvey Fierstein
Welcome to my Monday 😁
Nice warm hug for me.
(Kept waking up due to pain in right knee!)
Brew with breakfast.
No wobbly work wheel for two wheels \o/
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before he left for work.
I have jobs to do around the house.
The coffee machine went on.
Sorted through two baskets of clothes, one son had bought down. Some clothes I had washed last week, and he hadn't even worn.
One basket went back upstairs to his room.
Washing machine went on.
Poured the coffee and took it upstairs.
Sorted out all the clothes I washed over the weekend.
My youngest son was coming out with me for a ride to the Salvation Army Charity Shop.
Just abouts got a parking space opposite.
Gets the newspaper from the Co-op.
Waits for the Charity Shop to open.
Once open, I gets some bargains.
Back to Sexy Beast with them.
Back home.
Unpacks the bargains.
I bought a Candlewick bedspread for £3.
Looks like this but in purple.
Nice beach mat for £1.
I put the soup maker on.
Both sons were off to do and take part in a Massage Course.
I will see them later afterwards, as I am finishing my Crystal course.
Light lunch time...
Now to drop the pot of lavender to my parents.
Nothing has been removed since Mother's Day.
Now off to finish my Crystal Course.
I answered the questions and put the crystals where they are supposed to go.
Passed!
I have a good book to read tonight.
Thanks Joe for a great course.
Brings kids home. 
Cleansed my crystals.
Tea at 3.
I dropped off my son's to help Joe delivering his leaflets.
Who did I see wearing just a black vest driving his van on the otherside of the carriageway????
My younger gold digging brother.
He best not to get too near to me...
I bite!
Sorted through my Tarot cards up to making tea.
Meat free time.
Yum.
Now to read today's newspaper.

It's Coming Down (Again)!

Life without you was like a broken pencil - pointless.
Lord Blackadder to Elizabeth 1, Blackadder 2 
Welcome aboard to Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with Breakfast.
Then before there is a rush for the bathroom,
I'm in there first...
Thermal vest goes on....
Now back on that Wobbly work wheel 🎡
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
At least the sun is coming out!
Two winter hats and warm gloves are being worn this morning!
I turned on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
Back to normal again....
Car drivers just not bothering to stop...
Few BOINGs handed out for those that didn't.
Some on the otherside of the road, just don't car eless and keeps going, even when the big stick is coming out!
It didn't help with my bum bag slipping down my body and dropping on the pavement!
(Needs to tighten it up!)
Oh well, at least I survived the morning shift!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine goes on.
Now to break in the new bread maker.
Nice bit of bread mix to go on with...
Cheddar and Sun Dried Tomato.
Plus the soup maker goes on as well.
Once everything starting making everything.
It's coffee time!
Now to carry on writing yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
Soup is served up.
Chilli Chicken,Leek and Parsnip Soup
The bread was ready just before I left.
It smelt lovely!
Now for part 2.
The sun might be out, but that cold blast from the wind.
Still two hats and warm pair of gloves goes on.
Puts on my lights.
Going to have some fun with that low lying sun.
Met up with my 2 friends for a good Rabbit.
Time goes quick when you chat.
Said goodbye to them.
Let the fun start!
One white car was coming up the road.
Stuck my big stick out,
Guess what?
She put her foot down and went under it at 50 m.p.h!
She had a extra special BOING when she went under my stick!
Still had to slow down to turn left up the road!
One red car stopped over the road in the Keep Clear space, looked at me and my big stick, drove down a bit and got out of the car and came up to have a word.
He is going to say sorry for parking in the Keep Clear space.I was wrong, He wanted to know where the red school was?
I gave him directions, I could have acted dum, but I didn't.He turned round and went past without saying thank you.
Still had fun giving out BOINGs.
At least I survived!
Home time.
I covered up Sexy Beast as there will be a frost tomorrow.
Now for a much needed brew!
Marmite on some nice bread too↓
Sorted out tonight's tea.
Pizzas went into the oven.
I did my meat free Stir Fry.
