Bang Bang & Bounce!

 The trouble with nude dancing is that not everything stops when the music stops - Robert Helpmann
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’₯
The sun was up!
My late father-in-law's funeral is next Wednesday.
I did all the Heardles, except Heardle 70s which turned out to feature in the film,"Deliverance"
Now time for brew and breakfast.
No thermal vest today!
Long blue dress on instead.
Now out into the sunshine...
I give hubby his sloppy wet one.
 The big big sunglasses kept put on.
I gets the newspaper and chats to someone who knew the man that died last Wednesday.
"He was 64, and not a nice man." He said.
Then he told me about the dealings he had with him, which was no nice.
I wished him a good morning, and got my summer coat on.
I put on my lights.
Now to Rock 'n' Roll.
Again, people not stopping.
Lots of BOINGs handed out.
One woman in a blue car just drove into my stick, It hit the front of her car, went bang, and bounced off.She kept driving!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I goes past the Charity Shop and notices 2 nice pictures that I like.
I park up, grab a bag and my facemask and off to the Charity Shop!
Their card machine wasn't working, so I went to get some money out.
I got the big picture of flowers.
The manager of the shop saw me go past and saw me looking at the pictures.
I showed the picture of the two pictures I bought two weeks ago.
She said I did a good job and perhaps get a job as a Interior Designer.
I laughted and said it was too stressful!
Put all the nice things in SEXY BEAST.
Did some shopping in the Co-op while I was there.
Back home.
Too our recycle bins off the pavement.
Coffee machine went on.
Unloaded the shopping.
Soup maker went back on.
Coffee time!
I caught up with some blogging.
Then armed with a hammer, I put the 3 pictures,I bought on the walls.
Now for some soup.
Then it's time for Part 2.
The fun I had driving to my job.
One Corsa tried to take me out, pulling out of a junction, then he braked at the last minute!
Some was reversing and not signelling when she was backing into!
I was glad to park up!
On goes the summer coat.
On the way to turn on my lights.
I got chatting to two ladies.They asked if the man survived last week. I said sadly not.
They were on their way to the Charity Shop, I told them I went in earlier, and have left some bargains!
Turns on my lights.
Chats with my friend with the dog for a chat.
Then my two friends turn up to for a little rabbit.
Said goodbye to them when it was time for me to start my shift!
3 older women in their cars failed to stop.
They had 3 BOINGs for doing that!
Glad I survived that!
Hometime.
Time for a brew!
Puts tea in the oven.
Now to do some blogging.
I worked it out, by time I publish all my blogs up to the 5th June, there is 46 blog posts for everyone to catch up with!

Dolly Parton
Welcome to July!😎
Once the alarm was turned, I fell back to sleep...
Looked at my watch it was 6.50!!!!
Got up, washed and changed.
Woke up kids.
Breakfast with a slurp of brew.
Gave out my sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ to everyone.
Now out of the house I go.
Wearing some fancy trousers...
Time to wear the summer coat!
Tree pic.
Now for the fun to start!
The Cheeky Window Cleaner shouted through his window to me:
"You still left your pyjamas on!"
Cheek!
Didn't see the Lambo...
Instead  a nice white McLaren sports car went past me.
A few cars had to test their brakes!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Last day for the Bunting to be up in the garden!
Much needed coffee.
Younger son wasn't up,
So we didn't go to Bidford car boot this week.
Instead I did some shopping on-line on the Dunelm website....
"Sale Time!"
My new trainers had arrived. 
However, looking at the size of the box.
(Being on the small size)
It turns out they are a size 10!
(I am size 12!)
Wrapped the packet back up, and going to send it back later.
Now to get tea made for later...
Rolled out the pastry.
A bit of blind bake time...
Fried up some peppers, mushrooms, garlic and spinach in a pan.
Once done, I checked the jar of Pesto.
(Gone off!)
I used a carton of  Tomato Passata instead.
Added everything, and put it in the oven for later.
Watered the plants outside.
I had a bit of missmatch for lunch.
Run out of salad, just had bits of the fridge.
I left the house a bit early to post the parcel.
 I put on the 50's CD on I bought at the weekend.
Kept playing one song over and over again,
As it is that feel good feeling!
The song is:
Posted the trainers back,
First Class Recorded Delivery.
Now down to do my afternoon shift of Lollipop.
The sun was trying to break out of the clouds.
Summer coat went on.
Now for bedlam to start.
There were two coachers parked further up the road, which caused a backlog of car trying to get pass them. A lorry further down the road, had car drivers backing up the otherside of the road.
Cars everywhere!
Banging of gums as well, especially when I had to stop the car drivers.
One man went past and shouted to me:
"You didn't stop me!"
"I will next time!" I laughed.
Parents were still trying to cross behind the coaches to get over the road in front of moving traffic!
At least I finished in one piece.
I was going to get a drink from the near-by mini-mart.
As I was picking up by Dunelm order, I might as well nip into Lidl and get a drink.
Picked up my order from Dunelm.
Picked a salad and a drink from Lidl next.
Back home to see the Bunting had been took down!
Time to unpack my bargains from Dunelm.
At least the house is going to smell nice :)
I caught up on 3 days newspapers.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he came home.
Time to slice up the tart!
So yum!
Nice long look into today's newspaper.
