The Limbo Dancers Are Back!

My wife and I keep fighting about sex and money. I think she charges me too much - Rodney Dangerfield
Welcome to aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big stretch to start Monday with \o/
Heardle time.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Brew and Breakfast time!
Now time to leave...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Hardly any good music on the radio to listen to.
Time to put a good song on repeat all the way to work!
I gets my newspaper.
Then I put on the Big Coat.
(As it was supposed to rain the whole I was working!) 
Flowers laid, Flag at half mast.
Goes and puts on my lights.
Lights turned on,
Let's go to work!
I am starting five minutes early.
I crossed over 15 people in the first five minutes.
Then the fun started.
One white car went under my big stick.
The car suddenly stopped.
It looked at his mirror and saw me growling!
It carried on with its journey.
Then a grey car done the limbo again.
BOING I went!
I was having a right mare with the car drivers failing to stop.
I might having to put glitter on to get the cars to stop!
Finally finished in one piece!
Back home I go.
Coffee machine goes on.
Washing machine as well.
First I need the coffee...
Looks out the front door.
Drive is blocked again!
Gets on making the tea for tonight.
Leeks wrapped in ham, in cheese sauce.
That put in the oven for later.
Light lunch time.
Now to hope the afternoon shift is a lot better than this morning!
More singing along with some BIG SONGS 
Puts on my summer coat.
Turns on lights.
Gets my lollypop, collects my big stick.
Now to enjoy my lolly...
Both friends came for a Rabbit!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Not to start the afternoon shift.
Oh dear, it just carried on from the morning!
Lots of BOINGs given out.
I actually lowered the big stick, and they stopped!
10 minutes before I finished.
Someone parks on the double yellow lines, blocking my view!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Time for a brew!
Puts the oven on.
I write yesterday's blog post.
Hubby comes back and has a sloppy wet one 💋
Dishes up the tea.
I look into today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1963:
The Beatles - She Loves You
UK No.1 on this day in 1970:
Smokey Robinson and The Miracles - The Tears of A Clown
UK No.1 on this day in 1998:
All Saints - Bootie Call.
We did some scrolling of programmes on Paramount +.
Some good ones on there to watch later.
We will have to clear our Sky player as we only have 3% left! 
Sleep Tea time.
Let's hope I have a better day tomorrow!

You Could Park A Tank In There!

Laugh and the world laughs with you; snore and you sleep alone - Anthony Burgess
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Hot hug with Brew.
I get all the kids up ready for school.
Handed out the sloppy wet 💋💋💋
I didn't bother with the lumo trousers.
(Fingers crossed it doesn't rain)
The traffic lights are still there....going to cause lots of fun later on...
Tree pic.
Now to start today first shift.
The traffic is being held up at the traffic lights, then I go and hold them up for a few minutes.
Some of not happy bunnies.
I saw the lambo \o/
There were yellow bags of Selfridges on the passenger seat.
There are still car drivers talking on their mobile phones while driving and texting!
Finished in one piece.
Time to listen to the new CD I bought last night.
Back home.
Much needed coffee and apple.
Put Henry in the Sexy Beast.
Off I go to the cleaning job with the polish I was given early in the week.
Nice coffee halfway though.
Finished, put Henry back into Sexy Beast.
Listening to more of the CD...
Back home.
Light lunch.
More plants have been delivered.
The sun comes out.
No sexy lumos to wear...
 While I was waiting to start and chatting with some parents. One big Land Rover was trying to park into two separate spaces, as my late dad once said, "You could get a tank in there!"
She gave up and parked elsewhere in the carpark.
Traffic lights are still there...
Put on my lights and walked down to my spot.
Round 2 time.
Most of the cars actually stopped for me today!
Finished in one piece.
Now for some more Glam Rock hits...
Back home.
Crumpets with coffee.
Back out with the Glam Hits.
On the way there was a nice 21 reg Aston Martin behind me...
He soon overtook at the safest moment, however he wasn't doing 50 m.p.h when he went through the speed camera.
I gets in.
Loads up the skip with 2 mop buckets and vacuum cleaner....
There is some ghosts in here
As I was the only one in the building and there were those noises starting up...
My music is going on next week...
Finished for the week \o/
Back on the Glam Rock...
Back home in the sunshine.
While I eat my lovely tea...
Hubby and son go off to do next week's food shopping.
I meanwhile have a look through today's newspaper.
Bobby Darin (born Walden Robert Cassotto) was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, impressionist, and actor in film and television. He performed jazz, pop, rock and roll, folk, swing, and country music. 
He would have been 85 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 37 in 1973.

Riley B. King  known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. He introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato and staccato picking that influenced many later blues electric guitar players. AllMusic recognized King as "the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century"
He died on this day aged 89 in 2015
When they got back,
They had bought a Wonky Box from Lidl.
Sleep tea time.
At last the weekend is here soon \o/
