Stopping That Noise!!!

It may be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others - Anon
Welcome to my Thursday 💄
After spending a lot of night trying to get comfortable on a 2 seater sofa, it was time for a much needed cup of tea!
 Sleeping Beauty rose and made breakfast.
We got both sons up.
(One son is going into work)
While I was getting dressed, hubby fetched the newspaper and filled his car up with fuel.
Then he dropped son off and came back to pick us up.
The postman arrived and gave me my mail.
I had a reply from one of the prisoners on Death Row, I wrote to at the beginning of the month.
Now onto another Road Trip...
We looked around the market.
Now to hit the Charity shops..
Now for a coffee...
They didn't have Full Fat Milk (Blue)
So had soya milk with my Americano
Now to get back on the Charity Shop Hunt.
Got lots of bargains!
Now back home.
Got the soup maker out....
The soup didn't taste as good as yesterday :(
Live and learn. 
Hubby went out to get some Ear Plugs, as it would have been another night for me on the sofa as my Ear Plugs from Amazon wasn't coming until tomorrow.
He found some!
Hubby then went out with son to do the week's shopping (And next door's shopping)
One Black Audi travelling with no headlights, actually went off the highway and went back on.
Hubby was glad it turned left at the Road Traffic Island.
I got on with writing the blog from yesterday.
When he returned, I helped put the shopping away.
Now for tea.

 Now to watch the second film...
Now to read today's newspaper.
Skeeter Davis (born Mary Frances Penick;) was an American country music singer who sang crossover pop music songs including 1962's "The End of the World." She started out as part of the Davis Sisters as a teenager in the late 1940s, eventually landing on RCA Victor. In the late 1950s, she became a solo star. One of the first women to achieve major stardom in the country music field as a solo vocalist, she was an acknowledged influence on Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton and was hailed as an "extraordinary country/pop singer" by The New York Times music critic Robert Palmer.
She would have been 90 years old 🎈
She died aged 72 in 2004
Charles  Westover , better known by his stage name Del Shannon, was an American rock and roll country musician, singer and songwriter, best known for his 1961 number 1 Billboard hit "Runaway". 
He would have been 87 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 55 in 1990. 
The Beatles' "Hello Goodbye" single goes #1 & stays #1 for 3 weeks in 1967.
British singer-songwriter Ray Davies, of The Kinks, is awarded a knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II in 2016.
Then on to watch the News, and the review of the newspapers.
Sleep Tea Time.
Ready to celebrate another New Year tomorrow..

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

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Tuesday 🙈
Really nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 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 💋
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!
