Getting Into The Monday Mood!

Never argue with a fool, People might not know the difference - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug.
We did all the Heardle's, 60s,70s,80s,90s, Heardle, Movie and Poster.
Time for brew and breakfast.
No need for the Thermal vest.
It was forecasting rain...
I took my rain mac just in case.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I bought the newspaper.
It was due rain during my shift.
So I put on my winter coat.
While I waiting to put on my lights.
Typicial Monday Morning again.
Someone in a white Skoda was trying its luck pulling out in front of traffic, he had to just sit there and wait!
Puts on my lights.
Let's hope I have a better week that last week!
The rain clouds disappeared.
It was getting warm in that winter coat of mine!
Few cars had to be given the BOING!
I told a few of parents, I wasn't going to be here on Wednesday.
They hoped he will have a good send off!
I finished in one piece.
Glad to get out of the winter coat.
Home Time.
Coffee machine goes on.
Loads up the dishwasher.
Sorts out all the washing I did yesterday, into piles onto our bed.
Now for coffee.
I left it too late to put the soup maker on .
Oh well, let it be sandwiches...
Soup is back on the menu tomorrow!
It was forecasting thunder, lightening and rain for this afternoon.
We shall see!
Sorted out my friend's card and present.
Out for part 2.
I took the lining out of my winter coat.
So I won't sweat too much!
I had chat with some ladies who was having a break from class they were doing in the hall.
They couldn't believe I had so many car drivers not stopping.
I go and turn on my lights.
I have a chat with my friend with his dog.
His wife is having a hip op on Wednesday.
I wished her good luck with it.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
All friends are reunited for a good rabbit.
Then it was time to say goodbye all.
One friend went to work, the other friend went down to the Charity Shop.
I started my shift.
Car Drivers on the otherside are not stopping again.
If I had a bigger stick, I could reach their car roof.
My friend came back from visiting the charity shop with 3 DVDS and one CD.
One of the DVDs was...
Big Film!
I said, "See you later alligator!" to him.
I may have took the lining out of my winter coat, but no rain appeared, and once I finished, I soon ripped it off!
Back home.
Cup of brew needed.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby had a sloppy wet one when he came home.
Time for Meat-Free Stir Fry.
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Hoping nothing else happens tomorrow..

Rabbit,Rabbit And More Rabbit

The trouble with words is that you never know whose mouths they've been in - Dennis Potter.
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big hug \o/
Then it's brew with breakfast.
No thermal vest today.
Time goes so quick when it's time to leave.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I get the newspaper before I put on the Summer Coat, and Summer hat.
Puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start.
Oh dear it's great start to the working week!
9 BOINGS given out....
At least the sunshine made up for it!
Finished in one piece.
Gets home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Hangs the washing back on the line.
Coffee time!
Does some housework up to lunch.
Liquid lunch time!
Finished off the soup.
Now for part 2:
On goes the summer coat...
Turns on my lights.
Waits for my friends...
One friend turned up.
Time for a little bit of rabbiting...
I said goodbye to her.
Just as I started, a van parks on double yellow lines and blocks my vision down the road!
As soon as he went, 
Another van replaced him.
Plenty of BOINGS given out.
As soon as I finished, my other friend appeared.
Goes back to Sexy Beast for a good rabbit! 
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow after half an hour of yakking. He got talking to someone else after I went.
Back home.
Watered the plants.
Then made the tea.
Hubby had a sloppy wet one when he came home.
Tea is now ready!

Back To It!

I told you I was ill - Spike Milligan
Welcome to my Tuesday ⛔
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big hug to start the working day \o/
Brew with breakfast.
No thermal vest today!
Back to work I go...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I go and get the newspaper.
I slip into my winter coat, and gloves.
After I turned on my lights.
Time to start.
Just sticks out my big stick and nearly took out a windscreen the first seconds on the job!
Lots of BOINGs given out.
Another car windscreen was took out.
I was telling the parents how I sorted out my late Father-in-law's house over the 3 days I had off.
Hopefully the Estate Agent will give hubby a idea how much the house will go for.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Coffee machine was put on.
Hubby had a sloppy wet one when I got in.
Now to do some housework in my house now!
But first, it's coffee time!
Hubby got his things ready to take to the Solicitors later.
I gives him a sloppy wet one.
Instead of soup, I finished off the Pot Noodle.
Back on the soup tomorrow.
Back out for the afternoon session.
It was still quite warm, so the summer coat and hat went on.
I turned on my lights.
And waited for my friends to arrive...
They arrived.
Time for a bit of a rabbit. 
We noticed someone was emptying the belonging of the flat of the former Lollypop man.
One friend went over to see if anything has happened to him.
Oh dear, he broke his arm, two weeks ago.
Went into hospital, and died from  pheumonia.
My other friend noticed his Lolly Pop stick went in the back of the van.
He would have been 73 ago.
He retired from his Lollypop job in May 2019.
I took over in the November of the same year.
Said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start the afternoon shift.
Nearly took out another car windscreen.
How I missed it, I will never know!
Still lots of BOINGs given out.
At least I finished in one piece.
Time for a brew I think!
I put tonight's tea in the oven.
Hubby has sorted out the Solicitors.
All the money I paid out over last weekend to do up my father-in-law's house, I can't claim it back :(.
Howcome my brothers were claiming back everything on my late dad's estate????
I was so angry, I wanted to bring everything back from the house, so there will be nothing in there.
Hubby said he will pay me back all the things I have paid out of what he gets from his dad's estate.
The Father-in-law's funeral is in a few weeks.
Then this blog will be back.
If people don't like what they read, 
The Estate Agent was well pleased with the work we put in over the weekend. She said not to bother painting as the new owners will do, if we replace the bathroom suite, and do the kitchen up and paint the house up, we will only make £10,000 profit once the house get sold.Let someone take it on.
Someone else came round to see the house. He offered rock bottom price, and we will be lucky to get the price we wanted.
(What the Estate Agent said would it go for)
Hubby comes back and has a big hug and a sloppy wet one.
Tea is ready.
Then it was to catch up with today's newspaper.
UK No.1 on this day in 1975:
Mud -  Oh Boy.
UK No.1 on this day in 1980:
Dexys Midnight Runners - Geno.
USA No.1 on this day in 1958:

I write a big list out for the Co-op tomorrow.
Hubby is back at work tomorrow after having 3 weeks off.
Let's hope Hump Day, nothing else happens!
