Using Your Foot Instead Of Your Hand!

When you have nothing to say, sing it - David Ogilvy
Welcome aboard to my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice big warm hug to start Monday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
On goes that Thermal Vest!
Gets dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Now to leave the house...
I couldn't park where I normally park, as there are Covid-19 Boosters being done there.
Got my winter hat, gloves and coat on.
I turned on my lights.
Now to do this....
Oh dear, people not stopping again.
One car driver on the otherside of the road, put his hand up when he failed to stop.
He could have used his foot to stop instead of using his hand to wave at me!
One parent is dicing with death, she is dragging her daughter over the road and not crossing over with me.
I said to a parent, I was crossing over and witnessing it:
"If everyone does that, I will be out of a job!"
It might be cold, but at least it's dry!
Finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
I am going to repot all my house plants this morning, and touchwood have time to go on my spin bike.....
Time was going so quickly.
Had a quick coffee.
Back to the repotting....
I finally finished at lunchtime!
Now for some lunch!
Back out for part two.
On goes winter hat, winter gloves and winter coat.
It just started to rain after I put on my lights.
I was talking to my 2 friends up to the time I started my shift.
Where has this rain come from?
The weather forecast said last night, it was due after 4pm!
I might have to attach a blue light on my hat, as car drivers were still not stopping even with my stick up in the air.
Plus this light rain didn't help.
I was glad I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Now for a much needed brew!
Now to try to get 4 blog posts wrote.
I made a Meat-Free Stir Fry just after writing one blog post.
I got as far as writing 2 1/2 blog posts.
Hubby's team won at snooker 3-2.
I had a quick look in the newspaper.

 Hey, hey hey it's Sunday πŸ‘Ώ
Brew with hug.
Breakfast.

Checked tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Just in case I am going back to work this week. 
Got back in time to do the two minutes silence at 11am.
Swept up the leaves and put them in the composters.
Sorted out all the dead plants in the back garden.
Still got some vegetables....
I chatted with my neighbour's son for half an hour.
Just an I finished, it started to rain.
No sign of my younger brother with the paperwork I have to fill in and sign
Quick light lunch.
I made a quick coffee and walnut cake.
While that went in the oven.
I looked in the newspaper for the Birthdays..

"Because I like Super Heroes...!" I replied.

I had a nice red face when I left.
More singing along...
Back home.
 
 Coffee, nibble and a quick read of yesterday's newspaper↓
 Once finished, I go down to my lollipop job 🍭.
I chatted with a good postman I used to work with.
(He was doing some overtime)
While I waited to put my lights on.
 I was hoping it wasn't going to rain
  *Two cars failed to stop for me*
The parent I was trying to cross over the road said:
"The previous lollipop man used to shout at the cars that didn't stop!"
I just replied:
"I just let it go!"
It took me half an hour to get home.
Gets changed to go to the Happy Place Of Work...
Time to do some singing along↓
