Tequilla Time!

I don't want to sound paranoid, but that electronic line judge knows who I am - John McEnroe.
Welcome to my Tuesday ๐Ÿ’ซ
Still tossing and turning during the night :(
Had a nice brew with Breakfast later on.
No wet sloppy one or warm hug for hubby just yet.
At least the sun is out!
Then went back to sleep for a bit.
The Spur of energy returned!
Dressed, and coffee machine went on.
Outside I go to breath in some fresh air!
Started up Sexy Beast.
Now to soak up those important sun's rays!
Better take another Covid Test before lunch.
Oh dear, won't be going back to work just yet!

Going Round And Round!

Dancing with her was like moving a piano - Ring Lardner
 Welcome to my Tuesday ๐Ÿญ
A warm hug to start the day!
Brew with Breakfast.
The tea tasted RANK, as the water filter was running out in the kettle...
YUK YUK YUK!๐Ÿ’ฉ
I will change the filter when I get back.
Thermal vest went on....
While hubby was getting dressed.
Time to reveal Sexy Beast.
That had been a early frost.
So no scraping for me!
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy one.
 When I got to the car park, the entrance gate was locked, reversed Sexy Beast, and had to go through the no entrance gate instead.
Two winter hats and warm gloves went on.
Locked Sexy Beast, zipped up my coat, then dropped one of my gloves on the floor.
I'm not undoing my coat, let's play try to pick up glove with my big stick....
Done!
While waiting to put on my lights.
Someone asked: 
"If I cross the kids here?"
"No, further down the road,"I replied.
Once I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
My big stick and me kept turning invisible!
Felt like the Invisible lady.....
One car braked hard on the otherside of the road, the car behind nearly smacked into the car in front!
Plenty of BOINGs were given out!
I don't feel wearing blue flashing lights and music will stop those car drivers who fail to stop!
Anyhow I finished one piece!
I had a chat with my friend with his dog for 10 minutes.
I went to the Petrol Station to get some fuel.
The Petrol filler cap kept going round and round.
Not coming off. I asked one of the staff in the petrol station to help. Still going round and round!
I left with getting fuel...
I will see if hubby has the magic know-how how to get it off!
Picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the Coffee Machine.
Tried to look on You Tube to see if there is a way to get the petrol cap undone....
Nope was the answer.
Time for a much needed coffee!
Then onto writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done.
I finished off the soup....
I will make some more later.
Now for round 2.
I saw my friend again and had another chat for 10 minutes.
It didn't half feel cold.
The two hats went on, as well as warm gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now time for a rabbit with my two friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for Round 2.
It was cloudy, so no low lying sun to worry about. So there was no excuse not to stop!
Two cars overtook a man on a bike, coming up the road. The white BMW realised at the last minute there was a pedestrian refuge island in the middle of the road.
He then had to drop behind the man on the bike!
I had to give out the normal BOINGs!
Finished in one piece!
Home Time.
I put the soup maker back on .
Put our tea in the oven.
Made the salad for when the tea is ready to be served up.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one.
He went out to look at my petrol cap.
Quick jiggle about, and it came off!
Magic hand saves the day!
 Now for tea.
Veggie Quiche with salad.
Now to watch another episode of:
