Gone! Just Like Magic!

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy - Spike Milligan.
Welcome to my Monday Motivation 😄
Breakfast and Brew.
(With my new Monday cup!)
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before he goes to work.
On goes the poppy on my jacket ↓
As I am on the way out, I had a workman ask to move my car over the drive a bit.
I told him I was on the way out and you can use the drive. He was here to remove all the bamboo from next door's garden. I will park on the road when I come back.
Off I went....
I parked in the Co-op car park.
(There is only a 90 minute parking allowed)
I dropped the big bag of Dvds at the Charity Shop.
The actual buildings which includes the Charity Shop was  up for auction last week, someone bought it instead of it going for auction↓↓
I got a nice Robin scarf and a mini-cupcake baking tin↓↓
I chatted with a parent on the way back to Sexy Beast.
Picked up my shopping bag from Sexy Beast and went to get my newspaper and other bargains from the Co-op.
Back home I go.
I parked on the road.
The workman were outside.
"Finished? That was quick!"
They all laughed.
I may one a cup of tea.
I unpacked my bargains and shopping.
Cup of coffee time.
I wrote one blog post from last week.
Listened to Pick of the Pops from 1967 and 1979.
No liquid lunch today.
I chatted with hubby on his lunch break.
Back to writing yesterday's blog post.
Published last Monday's blog post.
Now to make some cake....
Out comes Kenny the Kenwood....
Goes in the oven.
Cup of Brew needed...
The workman thanked me for giving him a cup of tea.
After they left, I put Sexy Beast back on the drive. 
Let's have a look at the garden next door!
One bit of bamboo left!
Looking good :)
I got one cake tin out of the oven.
One left to bake.
I sort out my Council emails.
Salad for tea.
Let the cake cool down.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Now for a bit of Mafia....
I watched the first one.
Put the cake together and added the frosting to it.
I will decorate it tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
Hubby came back from Snooker.
He won his game, however his team lost 3-2 at the end. 
Time for a warm bed with a even warmer hubby!

Washing machine goes on.

Coffee time.
My older son has got the Ottoman out of his room. Now he is having a chest of drawers off my hubby to go where he now has a space.
He made up his new bed and is waiting for the mattress, which is coming tomorrow.
I some tidying up to do again!
Ran out of time to do more blogging :(
Liquid lunch.
Younger son comes back from staying at his friends over the weekend.
He was not happy that his brother left some of his belongings clogging up his bedroom for the second week!
Younger son told me, "Someone told him, I was a Hoarder!"
 "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!" I replied to him.
The tea was put in the oven. 
We were supposed to see a Queen Tribute Act in Nottingham tonight.

My Lumo Coat Isn't Bright Enough!

If you play with anything long enough it will break - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big stretch \o/
We will be doing the Heardle later on.
First up,
Brew with Breakfast.
Now out of the house...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
I goes and gets newspaper.
Comes back for my Summer coat with gloves.
It is getting a bit colder in the mornings now!
Goes and turns on my lights.
Let's go to work!
The fun I have on a Monday morning!
Lots of cars failing to STOP
Boing Boing I go.
The blue mini whose driver called me a Arsehole, doesn't stop until I am in the middle of the road!
She done her normal Limbo dance under my stick. Only inches from her windscreen!
Lots of cars breaking at the last minute!
One set of parents comes out of the sideroad, instead of using me, they run over the road in front of moving traffic!
Then we have the lorry parking on double yellow lines!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
Back home I go.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Irons my clothes ready to put on for the job interview.
On goes some make up, tights and then clothes.
Quick coffee time.
Got everything ready to wear and folder.
Off I go.
Parks at where the job interview is being held.
Has a chat with some old customers of mine while they were enjoying the coffee morning.
Then I had a chat with one of the clerks.
"I do scrub up well, when I have too." I responded to how good I looked.
I got called into the interview.
3 people were on the panel to aske me questions.
"Do you have office experience?"
"None whatsoever!" I responded.
"How did you get ready for this interview?"
"Sorted out my certificates in order!" 
I was thanked for coming.
In there for 30 minutes instead of 45 minutes.
Back home I go.
Got out of my best clothes.
Early light lunch is needed.
Now out I go for the afternoon shift.
By the look of those cloud and Google saying 50% of rain.
On goes the big coat.
Turns on my lights.
Sits in Sexy Beast.
My friends arrive for a good rabbit.
It was time to start,
I said goodbye to my friend.
Part 2.
Oh dear it's the same as this morning's shift.
It was like I was invisible again.
One van which failed to stop on the otherside of the road nearly had a tap and crack on his windscreen.
I think the button on my big stick which said "Invisible" was stuck on.
Lots of BOINGS given out!
The set of parents that fails to cross with me in the morning, and risk life and limb crossing in moving traffic, decides to cross with me in the afternoon instead!
The rain clouds disappeared, and the sun came out!
One van decides to park on the double yellow lines so I couldn't see any cars coming up the road!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Back home.
Time for a much needed brew!
Now to try and update the blog!
I get a phone call from the place where I had my Job Interview.
I didn't get the job :(
However I was like a breath of fresh air in the interview!
Wrote one blog post.
Now onto a Meat-Free Stir Fry.
Hubby has gone back to playing snooker.
He didn't sound too well when he phoned me.
I looked into today's newspaper.
