Nice To See You, To See You Nice!

This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force - Dorothy Parker
 Welcome to my hot sweaty Tuesday 😰
Got the picture of the sunrise!
Now to test the little grey cells....
Heardle Time!
Heardle 60s:
My son's answers:
Breakfast Time with brew.
Gave hubby a wet sloppy one 😘 before he left for work.
Younger son had a day off from work.
He was going for a long walk with a friend later.
I sorted out the stuff under the Garden Table.
Now for me to go for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
Another trip to Wickes for me.
The one that served was in the same year as my younger son, they went to the same First, Middle and High schools.
About 13 years ago:
I used to be a part of a group of parents walking some children up to the First School, it was called "The Walking Bus".
One winter's day, waiting for the kids to be dropped off. The mum of this particular child, dropped them off with no coat and suffering from Flu.
I did ask, "If she was going to fetch their coat?"
"No, she will be fine, anyway I have a high pressured job!"
And off she went!
I got my bits.
Now onto Asda.
I got some small bits and my newspaper.
Back home.
Coffee machine went on.
So did the washing machine. 
Now to enjoy coffee in the shade!
Then the gloves went on,
Opened a new tin of vanish to apply the second coat to the garden bench.
First coat to the wishing well.
The sun was moving around and it was getting warm!
Younger son went off to meet a friend for a nice long walk.
I had a early lunch.
An old friend is covering my postman's duty this week.
The last time he saw me, I was wearing a nice black boot to walk on↓↓
That was back in 2018!
(I had a op to reattach my achilles tendon,
which was snapped off when I was coming out of Lunchtime job on Halloween 2017.
I had to learn to walk, drive etc, finally went back to work after 8 months off!)
I said," It was nice to see you, to see you nice!"
when he left.
My order arrived :)
I didn't order enough ribbon for the cake board, for the LGBTQ+ Bake off.....↓
Had to order some more!
My younger son came back from his walk.
He bought back a lovely ice lolly for me :)
He did 11,000 steps.
He treated himself to a Paul McCartney CD from HMV↓
Tea at much later than 3pm.
Other son started his new job.
I wished him luck and gave him a sloppy wet one before he left.😘
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home and received a sloppy wet one too 💋
Nice easy tea involving Quiche.
Quick look into today's newspaper:
UK No.1 on this day in 1967:
Scott McKenzie - San Francisco 
UK No.1 on this day in 1975:
Typically Tropical - Barbados
UK No.1 on this day in 1980:
ABBA - The Winner Takes It All.
US No.1 on this day in 1975:

Son came back from his first day at his new job.
He really enjoyed it!
Full moon tonight.
Whereas the moon was coming up,
I missed the the sun going down!
A paraglider was coming over the house.
Enjoying the silence and it is getting dark early now.
Back in for some sleep tea.
Look like it going to be hot sweaty Hump tomorrow 🐪

See What One Drip Can Lead To!

Automatic simply means that you cannot repair it yourself

Welcome to my Thursday Fun 🐧
Nice warm hug with brew.
Thermals on.
7 years ago I started my old Lollipop job.
(I was made redundant in 2018)
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left the house.
On goes the winter hat, gloves, and winter coat.
I turns on my lights...
Let's get it on...
Being ignored by car drivers.
Just going under the stick as though I wasn't even there. Lots of BOING going on car roofs.
When I do stop the car drivers, it's either the their gums are banging or I have the look of death!
At least I finished in one piece!
I collect the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Instead of going on the Spin Bike, I am going to vaccum and mop this morning!
As I look under the kitchen cupboard, I see my bottle of Shake and Vac flowing in a box of water!
The pipe to the washing machine is leaking!
The red box of washing up bottles is all damp.
Soon on the phone to the company that fitted the washing machine.
They are sending someone else to fix the problem!
Now to use Henry to hoover, followed by mopping of the kitchen floor!
Felt better after that!
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog post all the way to lunch.
After lunch...
It's time for part 2.
I puts on the winter hat, gloves and coat.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with my two friends.
The low lying sun is going to cause problems.
I said goodbye to my friends and started my afternoon shift.
Drivers were going too fast, and driving into the low lying sun. One driver was moaning about how he couldn't see me due to the sun!
Two van drives just carried on going under the stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
My friend appeared and had a further chat until 4.10pm.
I said my goodbyes and drove home.
Nice pink clouds when I got home.
Time for a brew to warm up with.
Hubby came back with some fish and chips for everyone to share.
Now onto Netflix to watch a new series about Serial Killers.
We watched two episodes...
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Sleep tea time.
At last the Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
