Fighting For That Councillor Tin Hat!

The English are best explained in terms of terms of tea, roast beef and rain.A people is first what it eats,drinks and gets pelted with - Pierre Daninos.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
No sunrise :(
However older son became a Councillor for Church Hill.
Woo hoo :)
There is now two Councillors in the house.
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest still goes on.
Final day at work!
Time to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes the Summer hat and summer coat.
I walk down the road to turn on my lights.

Swaps the newspaper for my big stick.
Goes and turns on my other lights.
Let's go to work....🍭
It was a bit quiet for traffic.
(Not like yesterday!)
Last minute braking and BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Off home I go.
There were two Council vans over the drive.
I went round to my neighbour's house and two workmen were in there deciding on what room to start on.
I asked if they could just move the van up a bit so I could get my car on the drive.
They told me the kitchen has to be ripped out, and the shed has to go.
The van was moved down and I parked on the drive.
Now for coffee!
There was lots of drilling, and banging coming from next door.
(Wait to see if the bamboo is going to be chopped down)
Household chores done.
Downloaded photos for yesterday's blog.
Liquid lunch time.
It was forecasted to rain at the time I start the afternoon shift.
It was too warm to wear those lumo trousers.
Those dark clouds look grim↓
Had to listen to a good song on repeat,
Can you guess which one it was?
(It's at the end of this blog post)
I puts on my Summer Coat and Summer hat on.
Goes and puts on both sets of lights.
I visited the Charity Shop for a rabbit..
The Corner shop was closed to get the Post Office fitted in it.
(Post Office opens on May 19th)
Goes back to Sexy Beast.
I takes the lining out of my winter coat.
I put that on, and my waterproof shoes as those dark clouds are coming over.
None of my friends, came for a rabbit.
I'm need of a Boost now! 
One school was let out early.
I goes over to my spot.
Soon as I started the rain came down....
It rained for ten minutes.
Still had cars stopping in the Keep Clear space!
Lots of BOINGs given out for cars not stopping.
Then it started to rain again!
Finished in one piece.
I got talking to someone about how much fun I am going to have being an Councillor for over an hour!
Wishes them a good Bank Holiday Monday.
Back home I go.
I went to see what the Council had been doing to next door's house.
All the kitchen cabinets had been ripped out.
The three interior doors were outside.
The fireplace was ripped out.
There was a crab in a bag on the floor↓

Now let's go to work 🍭
Let the fun start!
It was tank time.
Some just scraped a bit of ice of their windscreen!
Then it gets better.
First a blue attempted to mount the pavement to go around me, then realised it was bin day and 3 bins covering the pavement.
Back on the road you go love!
Next bit of fun I had was:
I stopped a old woman in her car to cross a parent over, when I got back on the pavement, she drove up a bit and started having a go at me for something, jabbing her finger down and gums going.....
Pity she didn't wind the window down, I could hear about the problem I had caused!
I said nothing and carried on waiting for the next person to cross over!
Gave out three Boings as well.
Finished in one piece.
