Gaining A New Toy To Play With!

 Never do anything in bed that you can't pronounce - Mitch Murray
Welcome to my Tuesday 🚛
Nice hug with brew.
Hubby has calmed down now after the fun with his cue last night!
Thermal vest time.
Gives hubby a wet 😘 before I leave.
Parked back in my normal space.
It was quite warm, so no gloves needed.
I puts on my lights.
Now let's roll...🍭
Karma can happen so quicky...
One grey 13 plate Skoda, failed to stop and gave me the look of hate when she went past.
Only but 5 minutes later, she came back on my side of the road, and I stopped her.
Ooooo the look she gave me when she went past..
Having trouble all of my morning shift of cars not stopping at all.
The real danger was near to end of my shift.
I am stood in the middle of the road, holding my stick, a 40 tonne lorry comes up the road, and drives past me, any more in the road, it would have been bye bye to me!
Nearly been sideswiped by a lorry, doesn't happen too many times, thank god!
(That's why I won't let no cross until everyone has stopped)
I did mouth to lorry driver as he went past me.
(You are supposed to stop!)
I finished in one piece!
I picks up my newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine goes on.
Loads up dishwasher,
On that goes as well as the Tumble Drier.
Now for a bit of spin!
Watched 25 minutes of "Ronin".
Cooled down.
Now for some much needed coffee!
I wrote and published yesterday's blog post.
Now out for part 2.
Some nice big tunes to sing along with on the way..
Still too warm for gloves \o/
Turns on my lights.
Now for a good rabbit with friends.
Said goodbye to my friends.
Now for part 2.
One van on the otherside of the road, had no intention of stopping, good job my stick is so tall!
Finished in one piece.
More good music to singalong with:
On the way home, oh dear one blue car was in a rush, didn't stop at the island as I was coming round. He was stuck behind a council van and a low speeding lorry.
(He didn't like that)
He undertook the council van at the following island, then overtook the lorry.
Then off he went at 70mph+ in a 40 zone!
I was glad to get home after watching that! 
Once I chopped up everything I needed for tea and put in the oven.
Time for a brew!
Hubby came back and had another sloppy wet 💋
Dished up the grub.
Time for a bit of music to get us in the mood for next month!
My favourite out of the above 3 has to be...↓
Hubby went out and got our new toy for us of us to play with....
I  looked into today's newspaper.

Woodward starred as Police Sergeant Neil Howie in the 1973 cult British horror film The Wicker Man, and in the title role of the 1980 Australian biopic Breaker Morant. From 1985 to 1989, Woodward starred as ex-secret agent and vigilante Robert McCall in the American television series The Equalizer, earning him the 1986 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Drama Actor.
He died on this day aged 79 in 2009
Our new toy has arrived!
Hubby was on it like a Spider...
I told him to be careful, as tomorrow he will be very stiff!
(I have a warm hand to sort out stiffness!)
My go on it tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
Looking at the weather for tomorrow...
It's going to be a sunny Hump 🐫

Oh Dear, Someone Has A Lead Foot!

 The best way to spoil a good story is by sticking to the facts. - Author: Evan Esar
Welcome to my Saturday 📦📦📦
Nice hug with brew.
One son up ready for work.
Now out of the house we go.
Before he goes into work, we nip into a Second hand shop to look for a wooden cane.
Gets one, and it's free!
Then onto Argos to get more storage boxes.
Then onto the Storage place.
First storage room was 35 sq feet.
"Too small,"I said closing the door.
Next was 70 sq feet.
I scoffed at that...
"Too small!"
Next was 100 sq feet.
I got it for the price of 80 sq foot.
(I have a filling it's going to be too small, we shall see!)
Now to get the newspaper with a bit of nibble to tide us over....
Bacon with black pudding......
Once we finished that.
Nice to trip to Bromsgrove Argos....
To get more Storage boxes...
It was like pulling teeth, waiting to be served.
Finally got my storage boxes!
We nipped into one charity shop.
We got the first 3 series of 
Then to get a padlock.
Now back home to start on the loft!
Two piles to start with.
Tip or Storage.
Hubby done one trip to the Storage unit.
When he came back,
I went to pick up son from his job.
This is where is gets interesting.
One boy racer in his white Skoda Fabia, didn't want to get stuck behind me driving a red Skoda Fabia.....
We were at the traffic lights together in a nice line.
Green light, off I went, little boy didn't like that!
Down went the lead foot, overtook me in his lane, then crossed back into my lane at the roundabout.
Then I was behind him all the way to my son's workplace, shaking my head and singing along.
Picked son, and back home we went.
Hubby filled up his car.
Then for a cold drink..
As it was getting well warm!
Back home to load up car for another trip to the Storage unit....
That is after two car loads.
When hubby came back, 
Time for a much needed light tea.
I even found a good book to read that came from the loft.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then it was time to watch the big film.....
Quick look into today's newspaper.

James Frederick "Jimmie" Rodgers was an American singer and actor. Rodgers had a run of hits and mainstream popularity in the 1950s and 1960s. His string of crossover singles ranked highly on the Billboard Pop Singles, Hot Country and Western Sides, and Hot Rhythm and Blues Sides charts; in the 1960s, Rodgers had more modest successes with adult contemporary music.  
He would have been 88 years old 🎈
He died aged 87 in 2021
Sleep Tea time.
Now off to bed as more clearing of the loft tomorrow!
