Wet, Stormy Friday Feeling!

Except for the Flood, noting was ever as bad as reported 
- Edward Howe
Welcome to a Wet, Stormy Friday Feeling 🚩
Those sexy lumo trousers will be needed today,
with Storm Babet!
Breakfast and Brew
Sexy Lumo trousers went on.
Now to leave the house in the dark and rain.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
I told him to be careful going to work.
(He was dropping off younger son at work, as it was too bad for him to cycle to work)
On goes my winter coat, summer hat, waterproof boots and waterproof gloves.
I walk down to turn on my lights.
Collects my newspaper. Then I carry on walking to turn on my other lights.
I swap my newspaper for my big stick.
While I was waiting to walk over to my spot.
I watched something that was very bizarre.
There was a woman driving a white Audi in the car park opposite.
She reversed out of the car parking space,
Drove down the kerb, up the road. Stopped at the top of the road, then reversed her car into the village hall's gates.
She came back down into the car park opposite.
Got out and looked at the damage to the back of the car, then dragged out her child off to the nearby school!
It was time for me to walk over to my spot.
There was a bit of damage to her bumper of the Audi.
The rain was coming down really heavy.
However I was getting well warm in it.
One glove had to come off.
At least I was cooling down.
He's back parking on the double yellow lines,
fetching his coffee...
Hardly any kids I crossed over, as it looked like the parents were taking their kids in the car.
Finished in one piece.
I tried to go down one road, there was a big deep puddle, so I turned Sexy Beast around and went the only way back home in the rain.
Puddles getting bigger...
I put my winter coat in the tumble drier to dry out for the afternoon shift.
Now for a much needed coffee.
The heavy rain is causing problems getting around Redditch and into Studley.
I sorted out one of my cabinets with all my tinned food and pasta.
Hubby had tried to sort it out, and I couldn't find any thing....
Found loads of things and now we know what we have!
Liquid lunch time.
I told hubby at lunch time to come back a bit earlier as if he leaves it late, he won't be able to get back!
On goes those sexy lumo trousers..
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my winter coat and summer hat, with waterproof boots.
I turn on my lights and walk down to look in the Charity shop.
Have a good chat, wish the staff a good weekend.
I turn on my lights and head back to Sexy Beast to fetch my big stick.
Now to go for a rabbit in the square.
Those dark clouds are worrying...
I wished all my friends a good weekend.
Then I started my shift.
I had some children crossed over,
some were picked up by their parents in the car.
One of the schools were closed early because of the toilets not working, and some children were picked up early by 2.30pm. 
Finished in one piece.
Now home I go.
I didn't go the normal way, as it was flooded.
Some nice bargains from the Charity Shop↓↓
One whistling Kettle for when we have no electric!
The picture frame came in useful as well!
I had a bulk delivery from Amazon to put away.
I had a discount code to use.
12 tins of chopped tomatoes
12 cartons of passata
That should keep me busy!
Unloaded and loaded up the dishwasher.
I put the tea on in the oven.
Hubby comes back a bit earlier.
He has a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
Looks into today's newspaper.
Now for some telly....
Really good!
Sleep Tea time.
We watched the news and newspaper review.
Roll on the weekend!

Back Into The Sexy Lumos!

Give someone half a page in a newspaper and they think they own the world - Jeffrey Bernard
 Welcome to a warm Thursday 😍
Breakfast and Brew.
Rain was forecasted.
On went those sexy lumo trousers.
Now out of the house.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before I left.
I was feeling so warm.
Off goes the scarf and jumper.
The winter coat and summer coat goes on.
As well the waterproof boots.
I goes and turns on my lights and gets the newspaper.
A bit of good parking on double yellow lines.
As it started to rain, I walked up the road and turned on my other lights.
Now to swap my newspaper for my big stick.
Then I walked over to my spot in the rain.
I gave out one big BOING  to one car failing to stop.
Then one lorry and one Motor home parked on the double yellow line opposite again!
As there were traffic lights opposite the Co-op the traffic was backing up by me!
Finished in one piece.
The sun is coming out!
Back home.
Before coffee,
I got on making tonight's tea.
Out came the red casserole pot.
Made the dumplings and added them to the pot and put it in the oven for later.
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog post up to my liquid lunch.
Had a chat with hubby on his lunch break.
On goes those sexy lumo trousers again.
Out I go.
On goes the winter coat, summer hat, waterproof boots.
I go and turn on my lights, walk down the Charity Shop, then turned on my lights.
The rain came down....
Fire  Engine was in the car park.
My friends and I gathered undercover until it was time for me walk over to my spot in the rain.
Raining down, didn't have many kids to cross over, as the parents picked them up in their cars.
The rain stopped in the last ten minutes of the shift.
No BOINGs given out.
Back to Sexy Beast... 
Now back home.
Picked up a nice dress from the Charity Shop and Brooch↓
Time for a brew↓
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Time for tea.
Mmmm Beef with Dumplings.
Afterwards I looked into today's newspaper.
We caught up on some telly programmes we recorded last week.
All ready for Storm Babet arriving tomorrow.
Had a lovely hot shower.
Watched the news and newspaper review.
Sleep Tea Time.
All ready for the Friday Feeling tomorrow 🎈
