Bring On The Baker!

When I dance, people think I'm Looking for my keys-

Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start Friday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Now to get dressed.
(Thermal vest goes on)
My picture appeared in today's newspaper↓↓
(I'm the one holding the big stick!)
Now out of the house I go.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one...
2 winter hats, and gloves go on.
I turned on my lights.
Now for some fun....🍭
Lots of traffic for Manic Friday.
One car slammed the brakes on, while I was crossing the road, the car behind her, slammed her brakes as well, and there was nearly a smack up her rear!
One car I stopped wasn't waiting for me to remove my stick in front of the car, she put her foot down, and I had to whisk my big stick out of her way!
Some people tried to cross without me, and no cars stopped for them. I stepped in, and they soon stopped.
A bus nearly smacked a car from behind when the car in front stopped suddenly.
Inches away the bus was.
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Now to fetch the new breadmaker.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Drops off breadmaker and newspaper.
Back out for coffee, and yak.
I did bring along some blue milk.
But they had some already.
The first coffee was with double cream.
Next up a rather large brunch!
Two more coffees followed.
Lots of chat as well.
Said goodbye to my friend.
On the way home, I saw my friend who I chat to in the morning, with his wife walking the brown lab they are looking after, going for a walk.
I waved to them, as I went past.
Back home.
Opened the box of my new breadmaker.
I will have to try this out tomorrow.
Still to full to eat anything.
Now out for the final round 2 of the week.
On goes one winter hat, and a lightweight pair of gloves.
I turn on my lights.
I only have one friend to rabbit with.
(As my other friend is doing overtime at work)
Wished my friend a good weekend.
Now to do final shift of the week.
Still the car drivers do the Limbo Dance!
Plus having to put up with low lying sun as well.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time for me!
Now to put on the dishwasher, washing machine, and oven.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
As I was still full up from earlier.
Everyone else had either pie and chips or fish cake and chips.
I gave hubby a wet one when he came home.
I dished up their tea.
In the end, I had a cheese and cucumber bap.
Hubby wrote out the shopping list, and went out with son to do the shopping for next door as well.
I meanwhile looked in today's newspaper.
