Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Goes and puts on my other lights.

Got chatting to lots of people,
Lots of BOINGs handed out to cars failing to stop!
It's still breezy and quite cold.
Finished in one piece.
Got changed, and took some things down to the Charity Shop.
Back home.
The Council had been round to try and service the boiler.
However no one was in.
The Wi-Fi had done down, out came my late father-in-law's radio to listen to Greatest Hits radio.
Unloaded the dish-washer.
Used Henry for a bit of hoovering upstairs.

Met up with four friends.
I had the cake tin back and my two friends enjoyed the slice of Birthday cake I dropped in on Friday.
Nice day for a little bit of a rabbit!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Soon as I started, it started to rain.
I had to give out some BOINGs as they were either not stopping on the otherside or going under my stick!
Finished in one piece.

Move The Box Or Move The House!

 I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx.
Welcome to my Tuesday ☎
After spending nearly a hour and half asleep on the sofa, I had to get up.
I caught up on the newspapers.
I went upstairs at 6.30 to get dressed while hubby did the breakfast.
One strong coffee with the breakfast.
Hubby a really big sloppy wet 😘 before I left.
I didn't like the look of the sky.
On went my winter coat with boots.
I put my lights on.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Some cars kept driving under my stick.
I nearly got a white Tesla's windscreen that failed to stop the other side of the road.
Back to normal now, lots of traffic to deal with!
Rain kept starting and stopping.
I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Much needed coffee!
Then I had a power nap of half an hour.
Later on, a knock at the door.
Two engineers were at the door to test my telephone line again.
Our Internet Provider doesn't believe our line stops 59...they said 64.
They checked it, they said the line will go to 57 and that's it.
Either the box comes down the road or you have to move your house closer to the box!
They phoned my hubby to tell him the bad news.
Once they were done, I said goodbye to them.
(It was raining again!)
I need lunch after all that talking.
It had finally stopped raining when I left.
On goes the boots and winter coat.
It started to rain while I was waiting to start.
Once I started, the rain stopped!
I saw the white Tesla go past, 
(The one whose windscreen I nearly hit this morning).
Not stopping again on the other side!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now back home.
Once the tea was put in the oven.
Time to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby came home for a wet sloppy 😘
While I finished the blog post.
He dished up the tea.
Afterwards, hubby phoned the Internet Provider up. We had a right know it all on the phone.
The 10 days to cancel our upgrade finished yesterday. 
"Why you have poor speed at night is the neighbourhood all are on the internet..."He said.
Our neighbourhood?????
We are surrounded by factories who bar one are closed at night!
He wouldn't have it.
I had to leave the room...
I went to look at some lights...
I came back in after he finished.
I shook my head and looked at today's newspaper.
Dámaso Pérez Prado  was a Cuban bandleader, pianist, composer and arranger who popularized the mambo in the 1950s. His big band adaptation of the danzón-mambo proved to be a worldwide success with hits such as "Mambo No. 5", earning him the nickname "King of the Mambo". In 1955, Prado and his orchestra topped the charts in the US and UK with a mambo cover of Louiguy's "Cherry Pink (and Apple Blossom White)". He frequently made brief appearances in films, primarily of the rumberas genre, and his music was featured in films such as La Dolce Vita
He died on this day in 1989 aged 72
