Time To Hang The Red Knickers On The Street Lamp!

You have no idea how much it costs to look this cheap 
- Dolly Parton
Welcome to my Thursday 👀
Warm hug to start Thursday with.
Brew with breakfast.
It was still dark outside, no sign of rain yet \o/
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave the house.
I still went the other way to work, thinking those traffic lights were still at the bottom of the road.
Still wearing my 4 layers under my Summer Coat.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start..🍭
Some cars decided not to stop,
They were rewarded with the Boing!
Some drivers learnt to brake when necessary.
At least I finished in one piece!
While on the way to pick up the newspaper, some car undercut me on the roundabout.
He didn't get any quicker as I sat behind him until he turned off further up the road!
Picked up the newspaper, then back home.
I put on the coffee machine, and waited for my parcel from Fed- Ex to arrive.
Text message to say parcel had been delivered!!!
Looks outside, nothing here.
Gets in touch to the business who sent my parcel.
Be in touch in 5 days time!!!!
In the end, I googled the number of Fed-Ex and phoned up myself.
I explained, I am not a factory but a house.
They told me they would redeliver it...
(Funny DPD said the same, and didn't)
Time to hang the red knickers on the street lamp opposite my house!
I'm glad for that coffee now!
I wrote but didn't finish the blog post up to lunch.
I had some nice Chicken soup for lunch.
At least Amazon know where I am.
I got the latest Joan Collins book delivered!
Now out for part two.
Time for a change of CD.
On the way to work, when a gold VW Polo was coming out of a side road at speed. He has to slam the brakes on, or he would have gone in the side of me. I stared at him when I went past.
He had trouble trying to catch up with me.
(I was doing the speed of the road)
He must have a box in his car, that he has to do 30 m.p.h.
He tried to catch up with me, but I lost in when I go to work.
Only 3 layers under my summer coat.
Puts my lights on.
Now time for a bit of Rabbit with my 2 friends.
Said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
Car drivers were being good this time.
I finished in one piece.
Now back home.
I finished writing my blog post.
The Duck crown was cooking nicely in the oven.
Someone texted me for a lift.
Not at the time, as there would be loads of traffic that side of town.
Walk or get a bus.
It looks like I will have to wait for 5 days for a response of order being mis-delivered from the business. If it doesn't get redelivered, I want a refund on Monday!
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he got home.
Now to dish up the tea.
Hubby then and did two car loads of stuff from the storage unit.
We have until Saturday afternoon to empty it.
Once it was all put in the loft.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
Sir Roger  Moore KBE  was an English actor. He was the third actor to portray fictional British secret agent James Bond in the Eon Productions film series, playing the character in seven feature films between 1973 and 1985. Moore's seven appearances as Bond, from Live and Let Die to A View to a Kill, are the most of any actor in the Eon-produced entries.
On television, Moore played the lead role of Simon Templar, the title character in the British mystery thriller series The Saint (1962–1969). He also had roles in American series, including Beau Maverick on the Western Maverick (1960–1961), where he replaced James Garner as the lead, and a co-lead of the action-comedy The Persuaders! (1971–1972). Continuing to act on screen in the decades after his retirement from the Bond franchise, Moore's final appearance was in a pilot for a new Saint series that became a 2017 television film.
Moore was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991 and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 for services to charity. In 2007, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to the film industry. In 2008, the government of France made him a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters. 
He would have been 94 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 89 in 2017.
Sleep tea time.
The Friday Feeling 🎈 is back tomorrow \o/

Bargain Hunting!

Always buy a good pair of shoes and a good bed, because if you're not in one, you're in the other 
- Joan Collins 
Welcome to my Sunday 💓⚘
Plenty of hugs and brew to start my Sunday.
Now to take son to his Boxing lesson.
Drops him off.
Checks tyre pressures.
Drops Sexy Beast off.
Now to test hubby's tyres and fill up for the week with fuel.
Cheeky coffee and today's newspaper as well.
While we waited for son to come out of his Boxing lesson.
We had a walk around the near-by pond.
Drops son back home.
The off to visit my parents for a chat and tidy up.
Then I had a brainwave.
I could use those plants I was given on Friday to make my parents's grave even nicer.
Back home to repot the plants in my garden and two for the grave.
Back to see my parents with the plants.
That looks better!
I told them about the money grabbing sons and to haunt them and not me!
Said my goodbyes.
Off to the Co-op for some reduced food!
We saw some old fashioned buses on the way..
Inside we go.....
We got some right bargains!
Put it all away when we got home.
Sorted out the cloths for the week.
Light lunch.
More washing to be done.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Had a nice hot shower.
Out came the sewing box to sew up the pockets on my youngest son's coat.
Both pockets had holes in.
Nice easy tea.
Now to catch up the week's newspapers
Have I Got News For You.
Dragon's Den.
Gods of Snooker.
Quick look into the newspaper.

Watch Out For That Green Bin!

One must be a wise reader to quote wisely and well - 
Amos Bronson Alcott
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Let's hope for a good Hump Day \o/
Brew and Hug..
No time for the daily walk.
Gave everyone their sloppy wet 💋💋💋 instead.
I took some more sunrise pics while I was waiting to start my lollypop job 🍭
I have noticed this week.
Some parents are not crossing with me, and are risking their lives and their kids lives by crossing in front of moving traffic.
They just stare at me while doing so.
I remember the Nanny Mcphee quote:
 "When you need me, but do not want me, then I must stay. When you want me, but no longer need me, then I have to go."
If parents choose not to use me,
The Council will put the plug.
Then watch the bomb go off!
One over 65 year old woman didn't cross with me, went to the shops, and still didn't use me to cross back over, and then tried to make small talk about when the kids are on half-term! 
She reminded me of the lady friend of my late dad's......
I finished in one piece.
Now to visit Asda.
People are still trying to get too close too me when I putting the stuff on the till belt....
Glad to get home.
Coffee time!
Now for the bout of singing-along..
I followed a skip lorry most of the way.
The way his lorry hit a green wheelie bin,
(I'm glad it didn't end up in front of me, the way he hit it), it developed wings and flew...
I just kept my distance from him.
All over the white lines.....
I got to work and read the newspaper.

On top of trying to sort out the tea, I try and fail to get yesterday's blog post wrote.

I thought the wrong one went.
Now on to work:
