Getting The Chance To......

 If you can't annoy sombody, there's little point in writing - Kingsley Amis
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ‘‰
I was glad of a warm hug with brew,
as I was still tried from yesterday!
I got the kids up for school.
Gave eveyone their sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ from me before I left the house.
Big big sunglasses back on again.
The covid-19 vaccine jabs were being given out in the hall, I still parked in the car park.
(I have permission while I do my Lollipop job)
I took off two layers before putting on my winter coat.
The sun was back out. 
I had some cars having to break sharply for me on the other side of the road!
I survived!
I popped in on the way home to pick up the newspaper.
I was asked "If I was going for a interview?"
(As I was wearing my red summer dress.)
"No, it is easy to wear and I won't get too hot wearing my winter lollipop coat, but as it's hot this afternoon, I might have to wear hardly nothing under my summer coat!" I replied.
They all laughed to that!
Back home
Coffee first...
Now to catch up with the blog...
Someone phoned about a job I went for.
This is a 8 hour cleaning job on Sundays
(6.30 -2.30pm)
I asked if you get a dinner break in it,
He will phone me back next week.
I wrote and published Sunday and Monday.
(I will write Saturday's in the next few days)
Just in time for lunch!
Once I had finished lunch.
I put the tea in the oven for later.
The sun is still shining :)
I left early to try and park in the Public Car Park, only to find it full!
I parked in the other car park.
(Where I parked in this morning)
The summer coat came out again :) 
I was sat on the bench before I started.
I chatted to some of the parents.
One parent said hi to me, I said hi back.
While doing my Lollipop job, the same parent didn't want to cross with me, instead she dragged her child over further up the road in front of moving traffic!
When I finished and going back to my car, the children in red uniform were suddenly coming out of school......
Back home to enjoy a lovely ice-cream 
Quick look in the newspaper
Leslie  Phillips CBE  is an English actor. He achieved prominence in the 1950s, often playing smooth, upper-class comic roles utilising his "Ding Dong" and "He-llo" catchphrases. He appeared in the Carry On and Doctor in the House film series as well as the long-running BBC radio comedy series The Navy Lark. In his later career, Phillips took on dramatic roles including providing the voice for the Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter films. 
He is 97 years old 🎈
Alfred Hawthorne "Benny" Hill  was an English comedian, actor, singer and writer, best remembered for his television programme The Benny Hill Show, an amalgam of slapstick, burlesque, and double entendre in a format that included live comedy and filmed segments, with Hill at the focus of almost every segment.
Hill was a prominent figure in British culture for nearly four decades. His show proved to be one of the great success stories of television comedy and was among the most-watched programmes in the UK, with the audience peaking at more than 21 million in 1971. The Benny Hill Show was also exported to half the countries around the world. In 2006, Hill was voted by the British public number 17 in ITV‘s poll of TV's 50 Greatest Stars.
He sadly died aged 68 in 1992.
Now off to work..
(Hoping it's a bit better than yesterday!)
On the way, I get stuck behind a 2002 green Audi going 20 m.p.h in a 50 speed limit zone
There suddenly developed a convoy behind me.
There was no way to overtake it, so for a short while we all had to do 20 m.p.h!
I gets in a bit early to sort out my cleaning trolley.
I make sure I have enough cloths, bin bags, so I don't have to keep going to the Cleaner's Cupboard.
I had people look at the clock when I signed in.
"Just sorting out my trolley,"I replied.
They asked "Why I walked from the basement to the first floor? And didn't use the lift..."
"I do use the lift, but I fancied the walk!"I replied.
It looks like the Supervisor isn't in today.
I thought I might be able to borrow her vacuum cleaner to do some hoovering....
No Chance!
Someone was covering her shift and the vacuum was being used!
(I was told I was getting another vacuum on Thursday,
Nothing on whether I was was being paid for working over yesterday!)
As I was cleaning the handrail from the top floor to the basement, I was told I was the first to be seen do it as no one else did it!
I cleaned all the toilets on 3 floors. I made time to do the hoovering when I get vacuum.
For the third time, I was told the stairs don't need to be hoovered everyday.....!
It would be nice to get a chance to hoover something!
No sun going down tonight!
No late finish tonight. 
Gets home in the daylight!
The blue tarbards are due to be delivered tomorrow. I doubt I will get the money back for buying them....:(
I have a nice chicken tea.
I caught up with the days goings on with hubby.
I was getting tired at this point.
I enjoyed my sleep tea in bed.
The thermal vest might have to stay on tomorrow, as it is 10c cooler tomorrow...
No sweaty hump to worry about 🐫

 Hopefully hubby will be working from home soon...
(Whether he is looking forward to be stuck in the house with us is another matter ;))
