Found You!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx
Welcome abroad my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
The sun was already up!
We did all the Heardles.
Heardle 60s was:
 Son's Heardle answers↓
Now time for breakfast and brew.
Got ready to leave,
Opened the front door and the draught excluder fell and banged me on the head....
(It's not going to be a good day I fear!)
Puts on those big big sunglasses...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Got stuck in traffic lights on the way.
Goes and gets my newspapers.
To look at the traffic lights.
I get my Summer Coat.
I go and turn on my lights.
I am going to have some fun this morning.
I turn on my lights.
Now for the fun to start on a Monday! 
Let's hope they keep it clear!
The traffic lights wasn't hindering the car drivers for not stopping for me!
One blue BMW done the limbo under my big stick, but couldn't carry on any further as the traffic lights were red!
On the other side, 3 cars, one and the other just ignored my big stick and kept going.
Few more BOINGS  given out!
Suddenly a blue 20 plate Skoda went past...
Short blonde hair, big big sunglasses...
The same car that tried to run me over in November. It didn't help that the lights turned RED and can the last three letters of the licence plate!
*VU20 ---* 
Finished in one piece.
On the way home, a lorry pulled out of a side road, and nearly took me out.Two large blasts of  horn was needed!
Finally got home.
Coffee machine was put on.
I put my Summer Coat on a short wash.
Hung it out on the line to dry.
Did some more washing.
Coffee time.
Tried to reach a box on top of the shelf in the Dining Room.
Will have to get one of the tall sons to reach it.
As the box contains the cake tin, I am using for the LGBT+ Bake Off in August.
I finished in 2rd place last time.
I tried to put the throw on the our bed, and the link broke in my watch strap!
I then nearly cut off a finger by moving a Craft knife I used to cut adhesive tile covers with!
Anything else wants to go wrong why I am breathing!
I go outside to water the plants.
I need some fresh air after that!
Light lunch time.
Now back out for part two.
The Summer coat had dried nearly. 
New set of traffic lights on the way!
On goes the Summer Coat.
Puts on my lights.
Now to get a ice cold lolly!
The hole has been filled in \o/
Gets my ice lolly, collects my big stick from Sexy Beast. 
Into the park, in the shade I go!
Both friends arrive...
Now time for a little bit of..
Time for work to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Car drivers stopping in the Keep Clear space, was making it abit hard for me to cross the kids over. 
Lots of BOING, and BOING were given out due to cars not stopping.
Glad to finish in one piece!
Back home.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back, and had a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹.

 Welcome to my Saturday 😰
Day 4 of suffering from Covid 19.
I didn't sleep very well at all!
Coughing, nose running, burning sore throat.
Up at 3.30am wanting a brew!
Finally got back to sleep.
I listened to "The Sound of the 60's" in bed.

I went back to bed while hubby dropped one son at work and went to the Co-op. My letters to my Prison Pen Pals couldn't be posted as the Post Office was shut today.
(Try on Monday now)
When he came back, he treated me to crumpets with coffee!
Now it was time to rise after those nice crumpets and coffee!
Thermal vest went on.
Time for Vitamin D time in the garden.
We tired some of the garden, and enjoyed sitting in the front garden enjoying the sun's rays!
On went the soup maker.
Late lunch.
Soon afterwards I fell asleep!
Hubby picked up son from his workplace.
Plus got some rubble bags to take the garden waste to the tip tomorrow.
I got on with writing my blog entry from yesterday.
I had the result from my PCR I took.

At least I haven't lost my taste or smell.
Totally enjoyed my tea...
