No Wet Sloppy Ones For A While!

 Give a pint of blood? That's very nearly an armful - Tony Hancock
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’€
I didn't have a good night's sleep at all.
Neither did hubby on that uncomfortable camping bed.
Younger son is still feeling rough.
I had brew with breakfast.
(No hugs or slowly wet ones allowed)
At least the sun has come out to play!
I was so drained of energy,I went back to sleep for an hour and half.
One son was sent home as he wasn't feeling very well. We shall see if he perks up this afternoon.
I got up 
(As I had a burst of energy!)
Used all the parsnips, leeks, mushrooms, sweet potatoes for today's soup.
Next used up the mince beef that was in the freezer, vegetables, and potatoes for the cottage pie for tonight.
I unloaded and loaded up the dishwasher.
Once the cottage pies were done, they were put in the oven for later.
The Councillor is trying to get reelected in May put a flyer through my door.
Then a knock at the door by my Postman.
He tried to hand me my packets.
I told him to just put them on the floor.
"Why?" He asked.
"Because I tested postive for Covid yesterday!"
He soon put them down and left.
The 4 packets were our PCR tests. 
Now for some nice soup.
Afterwards I had a pain over my eyes,
So bad I couldn't open my eyes.
I spoke to my hubby.
Afterwards, I conked out for 3 and and half hours sleep.
Woke up with red runny eyes.
Put the oven on to cook up the Cottage Pies.
Took another headache pill as I had a thumping headache.
Couldn't hug or give hubby a sloppy wet one when he came home :(
(He is wearing a facemask in the house)
Tea is served. 
Time to watch the second series of:
Q looks so sexy!
We are going to bingewatch two more episodes tomorrow night.
We all did our PCR tests, so hubby can pop them into the pillar box tomorrow before work.
Next we watched 
Dragon's Den.
Then to The Apprentice's interviews.
Claude is back!
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Too Much Finger!

 Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognise it as such - Henry Miller
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start the hump with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
As well as layers!
No Frost last night,
So no uncovering of Sexy Beast. 
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I left.
I still had 2 winter hats and the big big gloves on.
Walked up and waited to turn on my lights.
I turned them on,
Now ready to roll 🍭
First Limbo Dancer of the the morning was only going 10 m.p.h but went right under my stick!
The Silver BMW was next, he wagged his finger at me as he went under my stick.
The third Limbo dancer, the car driver attempted to stop, decided no too, and carried on under the stick!
Cars were braking the last minute!
In the final 15 minutes of my shift, I was waiting to cross anyone over, when a red Toyota with 2  men aged 20+ sat in there.
The driver flicked me his third finger at me when he drove past!
"What have I done to deserve this?"
Lucky for him, I remembered his license plate number!
After I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
Got home.
I put on the coffee machine.
I phoned up my new boss to report and give her the license plate number. She will pass it onto the Police.
She had 2 reports of angry car drivers getting out of their car verbal abusing the Lollipop men/woman!
On the phone for 45 minutes.
I asked my kids would they get out of their cars and have a word at me....while doing my lollipop job.
"No way" came their reply
I phoned hubby up to tell him what happened earlier.
5 minutes on the phone.
Phoned my friend to tell he what happened.
45 minutes on the phone.
Coffee time.
I ran out of time to write my blog post from yesterday.
Now to enjoy some soup!
Mmmmm
The sun is back out....
Time to wear the big big sunglasses..
Time for part two.
Still had two winter hats and gloves on.
Turned on my lights.
Had a little rabbit with my friends.
I said Goodbye to them when I started.
Low lying sun was a bit of a problem.
I told a few parents about the finger problem from this morning.
They couldn't believe it!
Still had a couple of car failing to stop,
BOING!
Just as I finished, my friend appeared again with his dog.
Walks back to the car for more RABBIT.
Once finishing yakking, time for me to go home.
I covered up Sexy Beast, as there is another frost due tonight.
Then time to peel some potatoes and get the tea on the go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he came home.
They had sausages,mash,and peas.
I had the veggie option.
Yum!
Quick look into the newspaper.
At least I shop at Waitrose sometimes!

Moon was out...still!
Covid-19 Booster Jabs were been given out in the hall. So I parked around the corner.
Another moon picture...
The sun was coming up as well!
Two hats and warm gloves went on.
I put on my lights...
Now let's go to work....🍭
I was well warm under my coat...
Party going on under it!
The sun was out, blue skies...
And I forgot to put on my big big sunglasses..
Some car drivers were in a rush on the opposite side of the road not to stop.
One woman in a red car just looked at me as she drove past!
I survived the Monday morning \o/
Followed a Land Rover Discovery to the island.
It didn't stop, and barged itself around the island nearly crashing into another car coming round!
I nipped into Wickes for my order.
Then I collected my newspaper.
Back home...
The coffee machine goes on.
I get changed into my exercise gear.

Parks around the corner.
One winter hat and a pair of gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Oh dear the low lying sun...
I has a good rabbit with my two friends.
I say goodbye to them.
Right here we go on round 2.
One big car parked in the Keep Clear on the otherside of the road.
The parents and children couldn't get to the pavement she was parked in the way.She was given lots of death stares by the parents until she managed to move forward!
I finished in one piece.
I put my lollystick in Sexy Beast.
I had a parent in the car next door watching me doing it, and then said to me when she got out the car,
"We wondered how you was going to put that stick in your car!"
"There are 3 versions, one full one, one with metal in the middle, or a plastic middle.
I prefer the full one!" I replied.
Back home.
Sexy Beast gets covered up.
Now for a much needed cup of tea!
We had our tea early.
My nice meat free stir fry.
The Tiler came and did a bit more.
He is coming the weekend to finish it off.
Quick look in the today's newspaper.

Mae West (born Mary Jane West) was an American stage and film actress, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned over seven decades. She was known for her breezy sexual independence, and her lighthearted bawdy double entendres, often delivered in a husky contralto voice. She was active in vaudeville and on stage in New York City before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry.
West was one of the most controversial movie stars of her day; she encountered problems especially with censorship. She once quipped, "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." She bucked the system by making comedy out of conventional mores, and the Depression-era audience admired her for it. When her film career ended, she wrote books and plays, and continued to perform in Las Vegas and the United Kingdom, on radio and television, and recorded rock 'n roll albums. In 1999, the American Film Institute posthumously voted West the 15th greatest female screen legend of classic American cinema. 
She died on this day in 1980 aged 87. 
Sleep tea time.
I found a job I was doing earlier in the year been advertised again.
It's gone up by £1!
I sent my CV. I won't get a reply as I am deemed a trouble maker for wanting my emergency tax repaid back to me.They held on to it for two months, after I mentioned ACAS, they repaid it back in the third month!
At least they looked at my CV ;)
Hubby was practising his snooker.
He won 2 and lost 2.
I was sound asleep when he came back...
Night Night
