God loved the birds and invented tress. Man loved the birds and invented cages - Jacques Deval
Welcome to my Hump of the Week🐫
Hoping no more rain or wind today...
I was up too early for a Wednesday↓
 I needed a honey,lemon and ginger tea.
Once the alarm went off,
I went to give Sleeping Beauty a much deserved hug...
Once I got dressed.
Tea and more hugs time↓

&
Gave my kids sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Now out of the door I go↓
 It was still nice and dark when I got down there.
 The tree shot before I turned on the lights↑
While I was doing my lollipop job,
An ex-postman drove up by the side of me, slid down his passenger window,
"What are you going to do with lollipop stick?" He asked.
I put my lollipop stick through the open window, and replied to him.
"Get you to lick it!".
He laughed, I removed my lollipop, and he drove off.
Still have cars failing to stop.
At least I had no rain or wind to put up with...
I finished in one piece.
Gets home..
 
 I enjoyed coffee and nibble↓
 Followed by a light lunch↓
 Blew my hubby a πŸ’‹
Back out..↓

(Smiling can be dangerous!)
Not to worry, he carried on past me.....
Back to the job...
One red Range Rover failed to stop and carried on under my stick!
