Never do anything in bed that you can't pronounce - Mitch Murray
Another hot day awaits...

before they all left.
I started the day with coffee!
 2 more days of school....
(How am I going to cope in the 6 weeks holiday????)

 That's cold↓
 Just had to play a great song on repeat.....↓
Quick look at the newspaper↓
 The church is hiding behind the trees↓
I was asked if I wanted to go to the 90's themed Christmas Party in December.
I don't like 90's music was one reason.
I can't dull out the music by getting pissed as I am a tea-total.
Me wearing school uniform?
I wouldn't be wearing the school tie in the normal place...but somewhere else!
   I still sweated buckets.
I put all the things away on my own.
I have a nice shiny red face... 

 I have meeting with new lollipop boss.
There might be a problem with getting my coats for the job.
*They don't do my size*
I gave her two solutions...
Put a patch with her council's name over the old one on my two coats I have here
Phone the Chinese supplies and say they 6 weeks to get the new coats sorted!
I needed this coffee!
 When hubby came back,
we nipped to B&Q

 This might look nice in our garden↓

 We got the wood we needed.

 Final job of the day with some great music...↓

 I get back and flop on the bed...
One more day to go..until I break up
Friday Feeling is nearly here!
