This Why I Don't Like Mondays!

Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional 
- Bob Monkhouse
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew
Even had to wear a jacket as it was quite chilly.
Now to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leaves.
Now the fun to get to work.
A van had broken down opposite the petrol station, that was causing delays. Gets to the island, tries to turn left,
Back past the broken down van, now to go to the busy way to work.
(The road is closed as a water pipe as burst and flooded the whole road) 
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
They didn't have no newspapers in the corner shop. Walked further down the road to turn on my lights.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick. 
Goes and turns on my lights.
Now let's go to work....
One parent in a black SUV thinks it funny to brake the last minute, twice!
Some parents I was trying to cross over, didn't find it funny! 
I had to give out two BOINGs as the cars on the other side wasn't stopping!
At least the sun was out!
Finished in one piece!
Off to Morrisons to get the newspaper.
Then to visit a Solictor's to sign and get my Statutory Declaration witnessed.
The Solictor asked "where I got the form from?"
"I printed off the internet,"I replied.
"The form is not legal......!" He said.
I will have to come back with the legal form.
Back home I went.
I need a strong coffee after that!
I tried to find the legal form.
I wrote yesterday's blog instead up to lunch.
No liquid lunch today.
I spoke to hubby on his dinner break.
I grabbed my rain mac as it wasn't looking too good for the weather.
Just get into the road where my spot is, and traffic lights!
We are going to have some fun later!
I just get the last space in the car park!
Gets my summer coat and summer hat.
Walks up to the first set of lights with one of my friends.
I ask the Open Reach worker is he is going to gone by the time I start...
He grumbles,"We should be out of your way by then."
I go off down to the Charity Shop. 
I buy my book back, to be one of the prizes of the Bake Off next Friday.
I gets something else which will look nice.
Steam Engine goes past.
Says goodbye to the staff in the Charity Shop.
Turns on my lights and walks back to Sexy Beast.
It starts to rain down.
I put on my winter coat.
Drops the book into the Council Office. 
We wait for the rain to stop to walk over to the square for a little rabbit.
The van was still blocking the middle of the road where I use to cross people over.
I say goodbye to my friends.
The traffic lights are still there.
I had to stop over the otherside of the road.
(Where I stay in the mornings)
Once the traffic lights were removed over the otherside of the road, and he parked to remove the traffic lights on my side, I crossed over the road to carry on. There was lots of traffic due to the road with the burst pipe being closed.
I was glad to finish in one piece!
As I was going home, the traffic was building up coming into the village.
Back home.
I put one lampshade up.
and the other one↓
Cup of brew is needed.
I had a early tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
I went outside to put the recycling out.
A large black thorn went through my croc , sock and ended up in the bottom of big toe!
Got it out finally!
In need of some light relief!
The lampshades are looking good!
My youngest son gets my hat box down with the hat I am wearing for my friend's funeral tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
*It just happens to be Russ Abbot's 76th Birthday.
Nice little Birthday Tribute to great man at the end of the blog post.*
That lavender shower worked....
Out like a light....!

Hi all 👍
Just a quick update from the last one I did 4 weeks ago...💥
I broke up for the Summer Holiday from my lollipop job 🍭
I had some nice cards,presents and words from the parents and children.
I wore hubby out on his week off from work ...↓
We visited Evesham, Stratford upon Avon, and Kidderminster↓
For the rest of the time off,
It involves:
  1. Baking
  2. Blogging (only 6 more weeks of blog posts to write)
  3. Booking a holiday to Las Vegas for the next school holiday 
  4. Getting back to using my sewing machine(s)....
  5. Sequinned outfits will have to be worn too 😎
I have published two weeks of May.
Just as we went to Blackpool for Whitsun.
We didn't bump into Russ Abbot while we were there....↓
(Hubby's late dad was there in Blackpool when they were filming the TV series September Song which was released in 1993↓)
Hopefully the blog will be updated by the time I get back to work.....🙏

Welcome to my Sunny Tuesday 😎

The thermal vest stays on.
Now to scrape Sexy Beast.

The summer hat and winter coat goes on.
I walk down to get the newspaper and turn on my lights.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
I go and then turn on my other lights.
Now to move to my spot...
Oh the fun I had this morning.
For the sixth attempt of trying to stop the teacher from the High School.
He had to stop!
Lets of BOINGs on the otherside of the road.
One blue mini came speeding down the road.
I lowered my big stick right down.
He slammed on his brakes, smoke was coming off the front brakes.Plus he was on his mobile phone  as well!
Few last minute brakers as well as him.
Finished in one piece.
Goes round to see my friend and her dog.
We have coffee and chat.
Then off home I went.
Washing machine went on twice.
Washing was put on the line.
Liquid lunch time.
I wrote my friend's Birthday card.
Now out for the afternoon shift.
On goes my summer coat and summer hat.
I drop in the Birthday present and card.
Turns on both sets of lights.
Nips into the Charity Shop. 
Buys the matching round basket that I bought the other week.
Both friends appear and we walk back to Sexy Beast.
The Birthday Boy appeared with is dog. I left my friends to drop the basket off in Sexy Beast and fetch my big stick.
Goes back to the square to have a rabbit with all my friends, totalling 7 including me!
As I didn't go to the coffee morning a few weeks ago.My friends won the 4th prize on the raffle.
It was nice to be given a Cadburys creme egg and my other two friends had some too.
We could have carried on rabbiting for another hour, however it was time for to start my shift.
I thanked them for the egg, and hopefully we see everyone tomorrow.
Now to start.
I had to stop in the middle of the road on the otherside to get the cars to stop.
Two cars had to slam their brakes on at the last minute!
At least I finished in one piece!
Home time.
I had a brew before I started on the tea.
Fried up some turkey mince, with onions and mushrooms. Put it in the oven to cook it some more.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
I forgot to take a pic of our tea.
It was nice and filling!
