Nearly New Cue For Sale!

Good news rarely comes in a brown envelope - Henry Goldsmid
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on!
Looks quite dry outside.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
The Covid-19 Boosters were being given in the hall, so I parked around the corner.
It was quite mild.
No need for gloves \o/
I puts on my lights.
Now ready to Rock 'n'Roll.
It was nice to see the white McLaren go past me.
Car drivers are totally ignoring my stick and me walking across the road on the other side!
It's alright sticking up your hand when you go past, prehaps using the brake petal instead!
Terrible day for not stopping!
At least I survived in one piece!
I got my newspaper on the way back home.
Put on the coffee machine.
Swept the kitchen floor.
Out came Henry for a quick play.
Then I mopped the kitchen floor.
Time for coffee!
I sorted out my new bag where all my threads, and tins of bobbins are going in, all the way to Lunchtime.
Then it was time to take 2.
(Hoping it's going to be better than this morning!)
At least I had some good music to listen to....going to work...
I spotted one my friends going into the Charity Shop as I drove past.
I parked around the corner as the Boosters are still being given out.
We all met up for a good rabbit.
We all shared a nice piece of Millionaire's Shortbread.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Part two...
One Black Land Rover decided to stop,then carried on driving!
On the otherside of the road is worst, they just keep going and put their hand up as they go past me!
At least I finished in one piece!
Home Time!
More Big Tunes to listen to!
Time for a much needed brew!
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then it was time to make my no-meat Stir-Fry.
Looks in today's newspaper.
Petula Clark, CBE is a British singer, actress, and composer.
Clark's professional career began during the Second World War as a child entertainer on BBC Radio. In 1954 she charted with "The Little Shoemaker", the first of her big UK hits, and within two years she began recording in French. Her international successes have included "Prends mon coeur", "Sailor" (a UK number one), "Romeo", and "Chariot". Hits in German, Italian and Spanish followed. In late 1964 Clark's success extended to the United States with a four-year run of career-defining, often upbeat singles, many written or co-written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent. These songs include her signature song "Downtown" and "I Know a Place", "My Love", "A Sign of the Times", "I Couldn't Live Without Your Love", "Who Am I", "Colour My World", "This Is My Song" (by Charles Chaplin), "Don't Sleep in the Subway", "The Other Man's Grass Is Always Greener", and "Kiss Me Goodbye". In the United States Clark was sometimes called "the First Lady of the British Invasion". Clark has sold more than 68 million records. She has also enjoyed success in the musical film Finian's Rainbow and in the stage musicals The Sound of Music, Blood Brothers and Sunset Boulevard
She is 89 years old 🎈 
Cynthia  Payne (nÊe Paine;) was an English brothel keeper and party hostess who made headlines in the 1970s and 1980s, when she was convicted of running a brothel at 32 Ambleside Avenue, in Streatham, a southwestern suburb of London.There are two comedy films that are loosely based on her life, both released in 1987: Wish You Were Here, about her adolescence, with Emily Lloyd in the lead role, and Personal Services, about her adult life, starring Julie Walters as Cynthia. Both were written by David Leland, who directed Wish You Were Here
She died on this day in 2015 aged 82 
Sleep Tea time.
I was just off to bed after watching the newspaper review, when hubby comes back from playing snooker.
Oh dear, his team lost 3-2 and he lost his singles match in the pink!
I told him: "To use his old cue in the future, and put this new cue on Facebook market place, as He has only won 2 games out of 10 with it!"
He even has new lenses in his snooker glasses.
Not short of kicking him up the arse with my size 13's, he will have to do more practice. 
He was trying to justify the new cue and failed!
Off to bed with a warm sulky hubby.
