Writing, Spinning, & Need Of A Strong Coffee!

Everything takes longer than it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Sexy Beast looks like a need a scrape.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The sun might be coming up.
It's still freezing!
On goes 2 winter hats and the big big gloves.
I put on my lights.
Now to see how many tanks I can spot this morning...
Only saw two, is better than what I normally see...
Nice the normal white car on the otherside doesn't stop for me, she might be running out of luck soon!
Still had to do a few more BOINGs!
At least I finished in one piece!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Chops some veggies and put on the soup maker.
Coffee time.
While I had some spare time.
Time to reply to the American Prison Pen Pal who sent me 2 letters last week.
I wrote him 6 pages.
That should keep him happy :)
The soup was ready to dish up.
I had a Labour leaflet pushed through the door.
Didn't knock the door.
Only hear the Councillors when they want to be re-electioned! 
Dished up my soup.
Chicken,Leak,and Parsnip.
My new arier arrived.
I got in touch with Dunelm for my refund.
It is now been SIX  weeks since I put the order in. Waiting 3 weeks, and then cancelled it.
Now the excuses pile up:
1: The Manager at my local store hasn't received my order to give me a refund.
2: The IT department are working on it to find my order.
3: Today's excuse, is the only member of their IT team is now on ANNUAL LEAVE and I have to wait for them to come back!
I got sick of this utter crap and wrote a email to their CEO. If I don't hear nothing from him, I will go further up the food chain! 
Now off to do my afternoon shift.
Next door's carers had to move their car again.
On goes one winter hat and lightweight gloves.
I got talking to my friend who has had his hand op the other week. He had come back from Stratford upon Avon on the bus and dropped his earing aid. He was just on the way to the bus stop when I got chatting.
I told his wife, "Since I have been wearing a facemask, I can't wear earrings, as they don't stop long in my ear lobes!"
Puts on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
The sun kept appearing from behind the clouds.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to have some fun 🍭
Oh dear, had 3 straight cars go under my stick.
Some cars on the underside had to stop very quick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now to get changed into the pink lyrca!
I watched the last of The Irishman while doing my spinning.
Then onto the abs machine...
(I'm going to hurt tomorrow!)
Cools down.
Now to make the Meat Free Stir Fry.
Out comes the Breadmaker.
I can't find my lovely Breadmaking book.
So from memory in it all goes...
On for 4 hours!
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons, ) was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums around the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He died on this day in 1985 aged 54. 
"Reach Out I'll Be There' by The Four Tops, released by Tamla Motown in 1966.
USA No.1 on this day in 1976: 
Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
'Wuthering Heights' by Kate Bush, released by EMI in 1978.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
The bread came out alright!
Found my good Bread Maker book as well.
Hubby's team came back from 2-0 down to 2-2.
Even though Hubby lost his match on the pink.
I climbed into that warm bed...and fell off to sleep like a log!

Adding His Name To The List!

 I'm too old for a paper round, too young for social security and too tired for an affair - Erma Bombeck
Welcome aboard on my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Warm hug to start Monday with.
Opened the curtains....
Checked the weather, the rain is coming in, in the afternoon.
No sexy lumo trousers to wear \o/
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I left.
Once I had zipped up my coat, I was asked to move my car, over to a bit, as the centre was being used to give Booster Covid jabs.
Moved Sexy Beast over a bit. 
Turned my lights on.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
It didn't help there was 2 piles of dog poo near when I stand.
So it was poo watch, to alert people not to step in too it!
Also it's be careful of the older people driving to get their booster jabs.
Some seem to forget they have to stop when I'm in the middle of the road!
One car on the other side of the road had to slam its brakes on or face a tap and crack to their windscreen!
The sun came out!
I noticed more and more drivers are still using their mobile phones. One sat on his, and causing a backlog of cars, as I had gone back on the pavement!
I finished in one piece.
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now to get some jobs done around the house!
Once they were done....
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog.
Finally got my Amazon delivery delivered!
As they couldn't find me yesterday!
As normal the rain came in.
On goes the sexy lumo trousers...
I parked elsewhere, as the centre was full of cars. My two friends appeared for a chat before I started the afternoon shift.
We were joined by someone I had yet to meet.
(And afterwards, I never want to meet again)
"I want your job,"He said.
"I will add you to that long list that wants my job!" I replied.
"It's good pay and you get paid for school holiday,"He said.
"It is, but the added danger of getting hit by a car," I replied.
It didn't help him taking the piss out of one of my friends either.
On and on he went. I was glad when he did leave. He was trying to be funny, but he failed as I was concerned! 
I said goodbye to my two friends.
I was glad to start my shift. 
Sunshine, and rain.
One red car behind me, tried to old trick of moving forward to drive around my hand, until I moved near the pavement!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
Back to Sexy Beast...
Back home.
Nice cup of tea was needed!
I caught up with some of the newspapers from the weekend....
Now to get on with my Stir-Fry....
Washing machine has been well busy.
2 more bags of baby clothes.
I finished reading the weekend newspapers.
I pre-ordered the new Joan Collins's book.
I read a bit of it, and it looks so interesting!

I kept the bed warm for him.....
