I Wasn't Expecting That!

As the cow said to the farmer:
 "Thank you for a warm hand on a cold morning," - John F.Kennedy
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug.
Breakfast with brew.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now here's what happened when I was putting on my trainers at the bottom of the stairs.
Grumpy son slammed the bathroom door really hard...
My late's dad's wall unit which contained his cars and trains...
Flew off the wall, hitting a picture on the wall opposite...
Then it all came crashing down the stairs...
It's a good job I moved out the way and moved to the front door, as I was nearly hit by a large jagged edge of glass from the picture!
It reminded of a certain scene from The Omen..
The glass was bagged up safely,
The frame was in the recycling bin.
Now need a new frame for the nice picture!
Let's hope nothing else is going to happen to me!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I still put on two winter hats and gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now to rock 'n' roll...
Back to normal.
Cars failing to stop both sides.
BOINGS given out left, right and centre!
I spoke to someone and they also said about The Omen. Another said, to sage the whole house.
I survived the morning shift.
I went down to Morrisons for some bits.
I went round to the Newsagent to pick up my newspaper with my new voucher.
Wouldn't scan it, wouldn't accept it.
There was a large queue forming.
I had to pay 70p instead.
(Trying somewhere else to see if the vouchers are playing up)
Gets back home.
The coffee machine goes on.
Dishwasher gets emptied.
The washing gets puts away.
Coffee break!
Soup maker goes on.
Does more housework until it's time for some liquid lunch!
Now out for part 2...
Only one winter and no gloves it was that warm!
Put on my lights.
Now time for a little rabbit with my friends..
Told them about the near miss I had this morning with some broken glass!
I said goodbye to my friends.
I was having fun with the cars again!
Back to ignoring the big stick and let's keep going...
Far too early in the week to tap and crack.....
Some were trying their luck!
At last I finished in one piece!
Home time.
Much needed cup of brew when I got back!
Then it was back to catch up with this blog.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
Then published 4 blog posts.
Now to make the meat-free Stir Fry.
Now to look on Netflix for something to watch...
Really good!
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Maurice  Cole better known as Kenny Everett, was an English comedian, radio disc jockey and television presenter. After spells on pirate radio and Radio Luxembourg in the mid-1960s, he was one of the first DJs to join BBC radio's newly-created BBC Radio 1 in 1967. It was here he developed his trademark voices and surreal characters which he later adapted for television.
He sadly died on this day in 1995 aged 50.
