Just as I gave hubby a sloppy wet one,
Then it started to rain!
The Hall car park wasn't open,
So I parked around the corner.
On goes the boots, two winter hats, and waterproof gloves.

I turned on my lights.
Now to have some fun..🍭
Lots of rain, and wind.
I had a few drivers doing the Limbo dance under my stick!
One car driver had to brake hard on the otherside!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I got back to Sexy Beast. 
Both winter hats were wet, gloves were soggy, and the top of my socks were damp!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.

Now for Round 2.
I got a spare winter hat, and the lightweight gloves.
On to put on my lights.
The wind was getting up....
A group of teenagers went past me, while I was waiting for my friends to arrive.
One said:
"Can I have a lick of your lollipop stick?"
"The taste is disgusting,"I replied.
I had a rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
The low lying sun came out.
It was just that the wind was getting up!
My lollipop stick was trying to dance all by itself.
One car done the Limbo dance under my stick.
I was glad to be finished in one piece!

Now to give Sexy Beast a little run down to the Co-op.
I just walking over to the car park, who did coming out of the Co-op?
One of my friends I chat to in the afternoon during the week!
He was in a garden centre on Friday afternoon, that's why we didn't see him.
Good rabbit for 30 minutes.
Wished him a good Sunday afternoon.
Then in we went.
Didn't have the newspaper we wanted.
Got some reduced food.
(Forgot the Soy Sauce for tomorrow!)
The light kept turning red again....
Once finished, put the shopping in Sexy Beast, we nipped into Tesco Express to fetch today's newspaper.
Now back home with the shopping.
Coffee machine goes on.
Now to chop the veggies that are going in the Soup maker.

I leaves hubby to get on with the tea for tonight.
(Oh dear won't be doing that again soon)
Writes yesterday's blog post.
Tea is ready...
(I told him before he started, to pan fry the chops before putting them into oven. He could have used up the stuffing but didn't.
The mash didn't turn out right and was uneatable. Good job we had cheesecake for afterwards!)
Hubby went for a shower soon after.
I finished writing my blog post. 
I looked inside of today's newspaper.

Using Your Foot Instead Of Your Hand!

When you have nothing to say, sing it - David Ogilvy
Welcome aboard to my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big warm hug to start Monday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
On goes that Thermal Vest!
Gets dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋
Now to leave the house...
I couldn't park where I normally park, as there are Covid-19 Boosters being done there.
Got my winter hat, gloves and coat on.
I turned on my lights.
Now to do this....
Oh dear, people not stopping again.
One car driver on the otherside of the road, put his hand up when he failed to stop.
He could have used his foot to stop instead of using his hand to wave at me!
One parent is dicing with death, she is dragging her daughter over the road and not crossing over with me.
I said to a parent, I was crossing over and witnessing it:
"If everyone does that, I will be out of a job!"
It might be cold, but at least it's dry!
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
I am going to repot all my house plants this morning, and touchwood have time to go on my spin bike.....
Time was going so quickly.
Had a quick coffee.
Back to the repotting....
I finally finished at lunchtime!
Now for some lunch!
Back out for part two.
On goes winter hat, winter gloves and winter coat.
It just started to rain after I put on my lights.
I was talking to my 2 friends up to the time I started my shift.
Where has this rain come from?
The weather forecast said last night, it was due after 4pm!
I might have to attach a blue light on my hat, as car drivers were still not stopping even with my stick up in the air.
Plus this light rain didn't help.
I was glad I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Now for a much needed brew!
Now to try to get 4 blog posts wrote.
I made a Meat-Free Stir Fry just after writing one blog post.
I got as far as writing 2 1/2 blog posts.
