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.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I get all the kids up ready for school.
Handed out the sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
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/

Yuk, Just like Dishwater!

There's nothing a man can do, that I can't do better and in heels."
Ginger Rogers
Welcome to my Sunday 😝
After tasting my brew...
It tasted terrible...
The water filter in the kettle is on the way out....
Yukky brew!
Breakfast.
Dressed.
We nipped out to Waitrose to try out the knee.
There were lots of reduced items to be had.
It's a good thing I had left my £5 off voucher that came in the mail last month.
There was a big queue to get in when I came out.
Gets back home to unpack the goodies.
At least I have a Waitrose calender to hang up in my kitchen on January 1st.
Nice cup of coffee....
Hubby ordered some more water filters for the kettle. He went off to pick them up, while I read this week's Private Eye magazine↓
Light lunch time.
We then caught up with:
While I dried 3 baskets of washing in the tumble drier.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby meanwhile had some spare time to go on the Wii...
Then it was time to round up the kids for their showers, and get their school clothes ready for tomorrow.
Faggots,Mash and Peas for tea.
Back on to season 3 of Hell's Kitchen.
I read today's newspapers.
 Noah Lindsey Beery  known professionally as Noah Beery Jr. or just Noah Beery, was an American actor specializing in warm, friendly character roles similar to many portrayed by his Oscar-winning uncle, Wallace Beery. Unlike his more famous uncle, however, Beery Jr. seldom broke away from playing supporting roles. He was best known for playing James Garner's character's father, Joseph "Rocky" Rockford, in the NBC television series The Rockford Files (1974–1980).He died on this day in 1994 aged 81 years old.
I enjoyed some sleep tea.
Everyone is going to back to work and school tomorrow except me....
Really hope this swelling will go down↓↓
