Trying To Save Some Money!

 One can never be too thin or too rich - Wallis Simpson
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Lots of sunshine 😎
Breakfast and Brew.
Puts the boxes of books in Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes the summer hat and summer coat.
Big, big sunglasses.
I go and turn on my lights.
I pick up the newspaper on the way back up.
I swap the newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Let's go to work ...🍭
It started to cloud over.
Taxi driver drove straight through, as I was standing in the middle of the road.
(Time for the glitter gun as I am not bright enough!)
Just as I was finishing, I have had a headache come on!)
Once finished, I dropped off more boxes of books to the Charity Shop.
Then home I went.
Coffee time.
Now to save some money....
Both kids will have to pay for their mobile phone contracts, as I have cancelled them.
Moving onto Sky+ box.
They don't make that box no more.
(Plus I am not paying what they want for me to watch Sky)
Either lower the bill or I am cancelling it.
Sky Q was a lot cheaper and no installation charge either.
(I have a Sky+ box full of programmes from 13 years!)
 After sorting all out of that,
It was lunch time. 
Liquid lunch time I mean...
Talks to hubby on his lunch break.
Now back out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the Summer Coat and Summer hat.
I turn on one set of light.
I walks down to the Charity Shop.
*Bargain Time*
Hubby will enjoy listening to it in his car.
I turned on my other lights and went to get my big stick out of Sexy Beast.
We all meet up in the square for a rabbit.
I said goodbye to all my friends,
now to start the afternoon shift.
Oh dear, still car driver ignoring my big stick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Home time.
In need of a brew!
Now for a bit of Bond....
Tea time.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Netflix time...
Sleep Tea time.
More fun to be had tomorrow!

Give Us A Monkey Please Sis?

It is not enough to have a good mind.The main thing is to use it well - Rene Descartes
Welcome to a soggy wet Thursday.
I could hear the rain outside...
Those sexy trousers would have to come out again...
I woke up early↓
 Opened my Amazon order that came yesterday↓
 I enjoyed tea with nibble↓
 Hubby woke up from his warm pit to see if I needed another cup of tea and hug...↓
 Once sexy trousers went on.
Everyone has sloppy 💋💋💋
Out in the rain I go.
 All ready to get wet↓
 I put my lights on↑
 Today's tree shot↑
My boss came out to see how I was doing.
One red car tried twice not to stop...
Twice she had to!
The measurements for my coat got wet in the rain, so I will send them via email to her.
She did say if she feels it gets unsafe for me to do my job. The Council will put a Puffin crossing instead!
I said goodbye to her. I finished later on, and off home to remove those sexy trousers↓
 Light lunch↓
 Now off to do more singing along↓
Now to look in the newspaper↓

Steve Harley  is an English singer and songwriter, best known as frontman of the rock group Cockney Rebel, with whom he still tours.He is 69 years old 🎈
   I looked across the fields of fun↓
 I tried to finish on time..
I still had a red face!
Back to singing along↓
It's getting warmer↓
 My younger brother was asking what picture should go on the joint grave.I told him the colour wedding picture of our parents.
I left to get back on the wobbly work wheel.
The afternoon tree picture↓
 The low lying sun was causing problems again↓
 One car driver nearly had his windscreen took out by inches....He even looked up at the lollypop stick up in the air.
I finished in one piece.
Back home↓
 Gets home to gets changed to go to Happy Place of Work. 
More singing to do...↓ 
I gets back and its still daylight.
While we are having a late tea, my brother is demanding £500 for the gravestone! He is paying the other half.
"What about the prodical brother?" I ask.
"He has paid out enough,"Came the reply!  
My two brothers went overboard on my dad's funeral.
£500 on flowers
The remaining £250 is going on the food at the wake!
The bill for the vicar hasn't been added to the invoice yet!
At least the bill is in the Prodical brother's name! 
I decline his request, as he gets more nasty with his demands!
Off to burn off some stress↓
 I gets back home feeling a lot better after doing some singing!
Counting down until the Friday Feeling returns🎈
