The Lollypop Goes Into Storage!

The thing with high-tech is that you always end up using scissors - David Hockney
Welcome to my Breaking Up From Work Thursday 🍭
Breakfast and Brew.
Dressed, with those sexy lumo trousers.
Out of the house I go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
The gates to the Village Hall were locked.
I parked in the nearby car park.
Got my winter coat and summer coat on.
Waterproof boots.
Off I went to turn on my light and collect my newspaper on the way back.
Swapped my newspaper for my big stick.

Go and turn on my lights.
Last morning shift of the week \o/
Let's hope it is better than yesterday!
Oh dear, I was wrong!
One woman car driver assumed the traffic in front of her would keep going. They all stopped, and she stopped in the Keep Clear space!
I had to walk in front of her car to cross the kids over. She did say sorry!
The X19 bus had to slam its brakes on or it would have hit my big stick via its windscreen!
Our daily parker parked on the double yellow lines again.
The rain held off until the last 25 minutes of my shift.
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
Time for a much needed coffee.
Unloaded the dishwasher.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Got in the recycling bins.
Liquid lunch time.
I had a chat with hubby on his lunch break.
Then to do the final shift of the week.
More Bond to listen to....
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
I put my lights on and carried on down the road.
Sat down, waiting for my friend to received sandwich.
Then I bumped into a good friend who was telling me on her future plans....
(I waved to a fellow Councillor who was sat in his car, looking at me!)
I got to see a friend who is having Chemo at the moment and is having a bad time with it.
(I later learned that someone who went to the same Gingerbread club in the late 1990s, and dated one of my ex-boyfriends was sat at the back of the coffee shop, starring at me!)
Nice display at the front of the flower shop.
Off to the Charity Shop I go.
Great film I found.
I got some more bargains.
I said goodbye to everyone and went to turn on my lights.
I swapped my bargains for my big stick.
Went to the square for a little rabbit...
I wished my friend a good Half Term Holiday.
I was enjoying the rays....
I started my final shift of the week.
The low lying sun was causing a few problems.
At least the cars were stopping on my side of the road.
My other friend appeared at the end of my shift.
He had been to the Aladdin's Cave again,
Where I went last Monday.
He bought yet more stuff from there!
We arranged to meet up next week for a yak, coffee and visit of the Charity shop.
Wished him a good weekend.
Off home I go.
With some more Bond to sing along with.
Empty Sexy Beast of everything to do with the Lollipop 🍭
More goodies for free I had given to me↓
My Charity shop bargains↓↓
Added the air freshner to
Sexy Beast.
Cup of brew time.
Put the tea on.
Hubby came home and sloppy wet one 💋
We had a nice Pasta Tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Caught up with the Hotel Inspector.
Then with the news and newspaper review.
Sleep Tea Time.
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow \o/

Too Much Of The Little Things!

There is no such thing as a little garlic - Arthur Baer
Welcome to my Sunday 💓
Breakfast with Brew.
Out for a little ride.
Hubby fills up his car with fuel.
Then onto see my mum and dad.
*Spooky Alert*
We were at the end of the line of graves.
No one around and we heard a woman cough.
Nobody was around and we both heard it!
Slowly back to the car.
We go to get hubby's tyres pumped up.
One woman was dragging it out so no one could use her spare minutes of air.
Hubby pumped up his tyres.
Coffee and nibble time.
Then back home.
Washing machine went on.
Dishwasher was unloaded and loaded up.
Hubby started to collect all the old branches from under our living room and take them down the tip.
I wrote Friday's blog post.
Light lunch.
Then wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby was getting quotes for a new gravestone for the six relations buried in the burial plot.
I might carry on writing June blog posts as this week, I have full Council Meeting on Tuesday night, and got to make two cakes for the Bake off on Friday:
I had a light lunch.
Then I went back to writing 3 more blog posts from June.
Hubby got on with the tea.
I made the stuffing.
Just finished writing a July blog post when tea was ready.
Now to catch up with Priscilla....
We had  45 minutes left to watch.
Next up
Oh dear, I can't get the time back for watching this....not recommended this one.
Sleep Tea Time.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 tomorrow.
Baking cakes with Kenny!

Yesterday Never Comes!

Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody - Mark Twain
Welcome to the drying out Thursday 🌈
It is going to be hit and miss with the rain today.
Breakfast and Brew
It is a bit chilly out there this morning.
The Thermal vest be coming out soon...
Instead of that, the jacket came out instead.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
before I left for work.
I had to use a different way to go to work.
It's going to pray to get to work safely.
First a taxi pulls out of a side road in front me.
Then a white Corsa was in the wrong lane and pulled straight in front of me.
Nearly to work and a car pulled out of a side road in front of me!
I was so glad to get to work safely!
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
I went down to turn on my lights.
Then I noticed the rainbow.
I then got  my big stick out of Sexy Beast.
More rainbow...
Now to turn on my lights.
Now to go down to my spot.
The sun might have been out, it still was raining!
 I had a convoy of cars on the other side of the road totally ignore me.
More bad parking opposite me!
My friend who I chat to in the afternoon came down to see me. He didn't come yesterday as he had a bad migraine.He won't be coming this afternoon as he has the Plumber coming out to service his boiler between 1- 6pm.
I said see you tomorrow instead.
Off to Morrisons.
My  younger son is now working in there.
I said "Hi" to him as I went past.
I got my newspaper.
Back home I went.
Coffee time.
I then made tonight's tea,
Hunter's Chicken.
Once done, it was put in the oven ready for later.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
I didn't have no liquid lunch today.
I used up the salad...
I spoke to hubby on his dinner break.
There was a chance of rain. I took my rain mac.
Off to work I go for the afternoon session.
The road was finally open that I normally use.
Now to use it!
I got on my winter coat and summer hat.
I walked up to turn on my lights.
Those clouds don't look too good.
My friend and I walked down to Charity Shop.
A Minion cup was donated only 10 minutes earlier!
Woo hoo got myself a minion cup!
I had a chat in there.
I said goodbye to the staff.
Turned on my lights and now to fetch my big stick!
Then I went into the square for a quick rabbit!
My friend left to to to work.
Now to enjoy the rays before I start work.
Now to start my afternoon shift.
Cars parking in the Keep Clear over the otherside of the road.
One black Land Rover totally ignored stop sign on the other side and was rewarded with a BOING!.
She didn't like that!
Finished in one piece!
Now home.
Now to use the new minion cup
I had to chase up my cake order.
It was supposed to be delivered yesterday.
My cakes are going into the competition next Friday.
I had a email back, saying they will be getting in touch in 48 hours!
The delivery time was 5 days....
Doesn't like it won't be getting here in time!
I wrote a blog post from June.
Hubby came home and a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
I looked into today's newspaper.
My delayed cake order was picked up by the Courier.
Now have to wait 5 working days for it to be delivered.
Give me a train, plane or boat and I will fetch it quicker!
Going to be Wed or Thursday.
Pity I was going to get them done by Monday at the latest!
Roll on Amazon, some of what I urgently need will be delivered tomorrow \o/
Now to rewatch a funny film ....↓
Then it was news time.
Sleep Tea Time.
The Friday Feeling 🎈 is back tomorrow \o/
