Watch Out For That!

The English winter - ending in July, to recommence in August - Lord Byron
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice hug to start Friday off with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
I add a bread mix to the breadmaker before I leave.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
Time for those big big sunglasses to come out.
Still had the winter hats and gloves on.
The three way traffic lights were working now.
I turned on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
It was quiet for a Friday.
&
Cars were stopping!!!
Then the fun started...
First two Police Officers paid a visit to one of houses just up from me.
I crossed them over when they had finished.
One houseowner who I talk to, said to me:
"I am expecting a delivery from IKEA between 8.20 9.20."
I replied,"A white van, with two men eyeballing me has come down this road twice, the same van is just coming out of the near-by road." 
He looked up and said,"Thanks!"
The van stopped out outside his house.
Three cars overtook the van.
The fourth car, which was a black BMW overtook the van.
She forgot there was a Pedestrian Refuge Island.
She had to swerve to avoid it at the last minute.
Good job I wasn't in the middle of the road at the time!
The van was soon gone, and the traffic started to build up again.
I finished in one piece!
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Empties the dishwasher and loads it back up.
My friend pops in for a coffee and chat.
She is going to see Paul Carrick in concert in Birmingham tonight.
Save getting the late train back home,
Book a hotel and come back in the morning.
I wished her a good luck for the night out tonight.
I started filling in the answers for each section of the crystal course I have been doing.
1 & 2 done.

Finished off that lovely hot soup...
The bread turned out lovely!
Plus my bulk order of sleep tea arrive too :)
I looked outside.
Rain.
Time for those sexy lumo trousers to come out again. 
Put boots on, winter hats and waterproof gloves.
Turns on the lights.
Only had one friend to rabbit with as the other friend was getting the overtime in.
I wished him a good weekend.

Still a bit of traffic.
Parents wished me a happy weekend.
A few BOINGs were given out as some cars refused to stop .
At least I finished in one piece.

Nice Warm Friday Feeling!

You don't have to be mad to work here, but it helps - Anon
Welcome to join in with my Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice to enjoy a warm hug
with a hot brew.
Breakfast.
Opened the curtains...
Nice sunny day ahead...
Dressed.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I go.
The place where I normally park wasn't open.
I parked in the nearby car park.
I put my jacket on under my Summer Coat.
Now for the Friday fun...🍭
I kept hearing Agadoo 
My phone kept ringing....
It was ex-plum.....
(As I'm on duty, I'm not allowed to answer my phone!)
I stopped the brown car that thought it was funny to try and run me over a few afternoons again.Didn't find it funny.
Then on the return leg, she got stopped again.
Some cars were going too fast, and when my stick gets lowered, the brakes have to been slammed on!
I finished in one piece.
I answered Ex-Plum with a text message with OK.
Now to get to Webbs...
I go through Hanbury....
I missed my B3 space...
Meets up with my friend for coffee,nibble and yak!
Then it's time to look around...
Christmas is coming....↑↑↑
Back to Sexy Beast....
Said goodbye to my friend.
I went past Bromsgrove Morrison's petrol station, there was a massive queue for petrol.....
I remember back in 2000 when it was like that........
Back home.
Light lunch.
My son dressed as Where is Wally comes back with some of the cake he made.
All his 6th Form Year gave him an applause when he got into school for dressing up as Where is Wally.
Now for me to leave....

On goes the Summer coat.
I get a ice lolly.
Then I put on my lights.
I collect my lollipop stick,
And enjoys the sunshine.
Now to start the afternoon shift...🍭
It wasn't as bad as last Friday afternoon, not by a long shot. Still cars braking the last minute when I either lower the stick down, or I stood in the middle of the road!
I finished in one piece.
Back home. 
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back with some Fish and Chips with Curry sauce!
I gave him a sloppy wet 💋
Hubby dropped off one son at his football, then carried on to the shopping with our other son.
I meanwhile had some newspaper reading to catch up with!
Gerry Marsden MBE  was an English singer-songwriter, musician and television personality, best known for being leader of the Merseybeat band Gerry and the Pacemakers. He was the younger brother of fellow band member Freddie Marsden.
Gerry and the Pacemakers had the distinction of being the first act to have their first three recordings go to number 1 in the UK charts. Although they never had a number 1 in the United States, they were the second-most successful group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have hits on the United States pop charts. Their 1965 musical film Ferry Cross the Mersey was co-written by Tony Warren. 
He would have been 79 years old🎈 
He died in 2021 aged 78 years old.
Gordon Clapp  is an American actor, best known for portraying the role of Det. Greg Medavoy for all 12 seasons on the television series NYPD Blue, winning an Emmy Award in 1998.
He is 73 years old 🎈 
I help bring in the shopping from the car when they get back.
The moon is still bright...
Sleep tea time.
Now to enjoy some more Friday Feeling in bed with hubby 🎈
