It Can Never Be Big Enough!

 Marriage is a wonderful invention; but, then again, so is a bicycle repair kit - Billy Connolly
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’₯
Nice big hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Dressed.
It was looking dry outside...still a bit cold...
Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I left.
I have to go a different way due to traffic lights at the bottom of the road, causing bedlam!
I put on my Summer Coat..
(with four layers underneath)
I put on my lights..
Now for the fun to start...🍭
The first child I crossed over...
Ran over, and  nearly tripped over 
(Where the cross is in the picture)
He nearly landed in the middle of the road!
He steadied himself just in time.
Now for the fun of stopping cars....
A lot of cars went under my stick.
I lowered my stick to their face level and they stopped. One car was racing up the road and was met with a loud bang of stick being banged down on the floor!
Just got finished and chatting to a parent about the fun she had going for a Lunch Time Supervisior as the near-by school.
They said she wasn't suitable and readvertised the job, 5 days later.
I did say I was told of the job going.
But I prefer my lunch for one and not with 300 children now!
I didn't realise the time, and I should have been sitting down at Webbs, having a coffee and chat!
Too much rabbit again!
I said my goodbyes and went off to Sexy Beast.
I got to Webbs in 25 minutes.
I had to stop Sexy Beast in a funny position as a trolley was left in the car space I wanted to get into.
Now for coffee, chat and nibble.
After coffee, it was time to not get in the mood for Christmas!
I said goodbye to my friend, and now back home for a light lunch.
My new loft ladder had been delivered!
That should be tall enough!
I have a light lunch.
I had to take a layer of clothing as it was getting quite warm.
It looked like rain.
On goes the winter coat!
I puts on my lights.
Chats with one friend.
My friend and his dog didn't appear.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
I lowered the stick the whole time,
Suddenly the brake pedal was being used a lot!
I finished in one piece.
On top of traffic lights at the bottom of the road.
Traffic lights have now appeared at the top of the road .....
Back home.
Once the pastry was cooked,
I added the filling and put it in the oven to cook.
More coffee needed!
Hubby comes back and has a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
He gives me today's newspaper.
He looks at the loft ladder that came early.
"It's too big, you will have to send it back!" He said.
"It's not too big, and I'm not sending it back, you were looking at the measurements before I bought it!"I replied.
On and on he went about the ladder.
I dished up the tea.
One son left his tea...
Hubby left a 1/4 of his.
The other son and me ate all of it.
Can't win!
Hubby and younger son went off to the storage unit to fetch more stuff to put back in the loft.
Hubby and sons then put it up the loft.
Then on about the ladder again.....
All I had in my ear was "Send it back!"
I pointed to the Bathroom light...
"When's this being put up?"
Hubby and one son put it up.
We now have light!
(I am meaning to source the same pink paint I used to paint the bathroom with to paint over the white bit where the old light fitting was!)
I looked into today's newspaper while someone was still on about the bloody ladder being returned!
My answer was "No it bloody isn't!"

I had a very early Sleep Tea...
I got tired of hearing about the ladder.
Off to bed early at 9.30pm on my own..

Bigger One Needed?

 The world is my country, all menkind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion - Thomas Paine
Welcome to my Monday🎈
Let's see how Monday goes...
Brew and Hug time.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I gave everyone their wet sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Out I go.
 It's looking a bit cloudy.
I hope we don't get no rain.
As soon as I start, the clowns are out.
 One silver BMW didn't want to wait for me to cross back on the pavement, he drove round my hand, up on the pavement and drove off. Later on, one black Mercedes was one inch away from having his windscreen smashed, as he failed to stop.
It's going to be one of those days!
I finished in one piece.
Back home.
Much needed coffee after this morning's fun↓
Time for another CD in the car...
I had a quick read of the newspaper..

 I looked across the fields of fun↓
I hope the rain keeps off.
I do my bit.
Then it's back to the singing...
Back home...
Light lunch↓
It nicely raining..
Sexy lumo trousers have to be worn.
Back out in the rain I go.
While I am waiting to start, I see the silver BMW from this morning.
I go over and take the reg number of the car.
When I start on duty, a little bit later, the man is once again drivng the silver BMW and drives past me(on the road not  the pavement this time).
Good job I have my lumo trousers on as it's heavy rain time.
A few cars don't seem to understand the word STOP on my stick...
Bigger stick needed perhaps???
When I get home.
The younger son has an anger meltdown, throwing stuff around, half his stuff down the stairs from his room. 5 friends were taking the piss out the facemask I made him.
Now he is taking it out on us!
He wants different facemasks, 3,.....
I need a big hug off my hubby when he comes home.
Hubby tries to sort out this anger managerment problems.
While I get out the sewing machine..
Hubby emails the school about this situation.
Quick Stir-Fry.
Back to the sewing of the facemasks.
Then I have to go down to work.
Starts off with a big tune...
I gets back to find there is going to be a problem with the housesale of my late dad's house just to add more things to the mix today!
I manage to catch up with yesterday's blog post...
With a nice cup of Sleep Tea.
"No doggy after the day I have had!"
