Bad Tuesday Again!

Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought - Murphy's Law.
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’¦
Nice big hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with breakfast.
We did all the Heardles.
No need for the Thermal vest \o/
Hoping nothing is going to happen today.
As it normally does on a Tuesday!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
I goes and gets the newspaper first.
I slips into the Summer Coat and hat.
With big big sunglasses.
  
I puts on my lights.
Now off to work I go....
Some on the otherside were not STOPPING, my stick is not quite long enough to tap their windscreen!
Talked to some of the parents.
They hoped tomorrow would go alright.
Finished in one piece.
It's getting warm.
Gets home.
The coffee machine goes on.
I change into a tee-shirt.
All the windows are opened.
Now to wait for the council to do some repairs.
Coffee time.
 The bread maker and soup maker goes on.
Caught up with some blogging.
The council man comes and as he turns off the water under the sink.
The container under the pipe to the washing machine is full of water.
The pipe is leaking again for the second time in 9 months.
Once the council man did the repair, I thanked him for doing it.
Gets onto the place where I bought the washing machine.Fobbed off and said I have to phone Bosch now.
Before I did, now for some light lunch.
Off to do round 2.
I put on my summer coat and walked to put on my lights. On the way to get a cold lollypop, I bump into someone I chat to in the morning.
He was having a bad Tuesday, he doesn't like Tuesdays. I told him I was having a bad Tuesday.
We now have 2 members of the Bad Tuesday Club.
Off to get a ice cold lolly!
Only one friend turns up, as my other friend was running late.
Time for a little rabbit...
When it was time to start.
My friend then goes off home.
Cars were stopping myside, 
The other side, they were stopping in the Keep Clear space..
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Nice cold lolly to cool down.
Carried on writing my blog.
Phoned up Bosch.
Because I work weekdays, I would have preferred a Saturday for the engineer to come out.
Nothing for 3 months.
Handwashing for 3 months then I said.
Someone is coming out next week.
Great.
Gets on with the tea.
Hubby has a sloppy wet one when he comes back.
Lovely.

What's That Dropping Down My Leg????

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ™ˆ
Really nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
The hall car park wasn't open, so I parked around the corner.
2 winter hats were put on, as well at gloves.
It was a cold one.
Turns on my lights.
Time to Rock 'n' Roll...🍭
Some cars were in a hurry, so they didn't stop!
I felt something sliding down by body,
I got back to the pavement just in time!
It fell down by my feet...
Not knickers, or leggings...
But my Bum Bag!
I left it on the gatepost until I finished.
At least I finished in one piece!
I gets my newspaper on the way to the coffee date.
I met my friend for coffee, chat, and nibble.
Couldn't find where you can get toast on the screen.
In the end we went to the Cashier.
I paid for an Americano coffee.
It wasn't on the machine.
I was told to press the Black coffee and then add milk!!!!!
Trouble is they only had semi-skimmed milk!
So I had to go into the supermarket and buy a pint of full fat milk!
The whole time I had taken to get it, buy it and get back to the cafe, I had sung very loud  along with:
Now to get on drinking my "Coffee" and eating my toast!
I needed another coffee after I finished that one.
So I had to get the black coffee and add my milk and enjoy the "Americano" coffee.
Soon as finished, said goodbye to my friend.
One car nearly hit me in the car park, he left it at the last minute to brake.
Didn't I shoot him a look!
Back home in one piece!
It was a bit late to put on my coffee machine.
So I had some ground coffee instead.
After reading my emails, and I ran out of time to go on my spin bike.
Early lunch time!
Now I have my mobile phone playing up!
Great!
Now for part 2.
Winter hat and gloves on.
I put on my lights. 
I only have one friend to chat to up to the start of the afternoon shift.
I wish her a good time at her work.
Now for me to start at mine.
Some stopped the last minute, some just carried on.
At least I finished in one piece.
My other friend arrived and we had a chat by my Sexy Beast.
He had dropped off his car this morning to be MOT. He went to collect it in the afternoon, while walking into the garage forecort, he sort someone has swept up bit of red plastic bumper and windscreen glass into a pile.
He found out who it belonged to, as parked next to his car, was a red one, with the bumper pushed into the car and the back window glass was missing.
We carried on talking until 4.10pm.
It was getting dark by now.
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow.
Then the fun starts...
Stuck behind a RAC van doing 20 m.p.h  and no chance of overtaking it!
Glad to get home after that!
I covered up Sexy Beast.
I got on with making the tea for tonight.
I ran out of time to write yesterday's blog.
Just as got a far as uploading the photos from yesterday.
I updated my CV on the on-line site I go for jobs on.
My Advent calender arrived...
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Time for the veggie option.
It was lovely!
Quick read of the newspaper afterwards.
The Beatles release single "I Feel Fine" & "She's a Woman" in 1964.
George Harrison releases "My Sweet Lord" in the USA in 1970.
Sleep Tea Time.
Going to bed early after the day I have had!
Night Night x

Talk Talk & A Bit More

 Hold a true friend with both hands - Nigerian Proverb
Welcome to my Thursday πŸ’ͺ
Cup of Brew with warm hug to start the day!
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I got the kids up ready for school.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he goes to work.
I then to go to give my kids their sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before they go to school.
Time for a quick coffee.
Then off to get results of my blood test from two weeks ago.
I was the only one waiting.
I goes in early to see the Nurse.
We got chatting and then she realised that she has 3 patients to see in the waiting room.
I will see her in 6 months time. 
Back to the Sexy Beast I go. 
I went past my late dad's house.
It's looking like a public car park now.
Four cars parked on the drive.
Back home.
Unloads and loads up dishwasher.
Time to write yesterday's blog.
I didn't have any post which I thought was funny as I am expecting at least  one crafting magazine!
The wallpaper border I bought on 8th March is still stuck in the Hermes network, I might have to ask for a replacement!  
Lunchtime.
Going back to writing my blog,
The post appeared at 2.20pm?????????
Nice stamps 
(Which I have kept)
I got a feeling it was wrongly delivered to one of the factories around here!
Let's see which craft magazine it is....
Lots of nice things to make in here.
Tea at 3.
Hubby is going to see his dad after work.
I found an ideal cleaning job near me.
However the pay was a bit poop↓
Oh well, keep on looking.
As soon as Boris has his press conference.
I had the certain email 15 mins later....
No need to shield after 31st March.
Fingers crossed we don't have another bad wave of Covid coming after the country has been opened up in June!
At least I am having my second jab before 25th May...
Hubby meanwhile might be lucky and have his first jab in May..... 
I put on the tea early.
Now to watch a film.
I looked on Netflix, then on Prime Video.
I found the film I was looking for since Valentine's Day↓
Tea time.
Hubby comes back after the film has finished.
He has a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
He gives me today's newspaper.
Chuck Berry  was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. Nicknamed the "Father of Rock and Roll", Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive with songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958). Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.
He died on this day aged 90 in 2017. 
Now to catch up with Line of Duty.
Sleep Tea time.
We had another 10 mins to go but after having a lavender shower I was ready for bed!
At least the Friday Feeling 🎈is back tomorrow!
