Using Up My Mouth Battery!

Nice hug to start the day!

The sun is already in the sky...
On goes the coat...

Turns on my lights...
Let's get the party started!
Oh dear.....I  sigh.
One old woman in a blue car failed to stop and looked up at the sky for the stick!
Some cars didn't want to stop, one had too or his windscreen would be smacked!
Hey ho, finished in one piece!
Just walking back to Sexy Beast, when I got chatting to a parent I crossed over earlier.
After a hour yakking, she left to get some milk.
I got chatting to someone else for a good 10 minutes!
Got back to Sexy Beast.

Cars were not stopping over the otherside of the road. 
Pity I haven't got a mini-lollipop stick coming out of the big one, then I could get the cars to stop!
Finished in one piece.
My friend appeared, and thanked me for his balloons and Birthday Card...

Time To Mount The Broomstick!

 Welcome to my Saturday ๐Ÿฟ
On this day in 2017,
I had an accident, 
Which involved an ambulance ride to my local hospital...
My Achilles tendon had come off the bone.
Plus the corner bone of my foot had gone 6 inches into my foot.
  (I had a phone call from by then Lollipop Supervisor the very next day, am I coming back to work?)
I was in hospital for 2 weeks.
I had my tendon reattached and bone glued back on!
8 months off work, I had to learn to walk and drive again!
Had brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Washing machine went on, followed by the tumble drier being put on.
Now for coffee....
Hubby went out with one of our sons to drop off a box of Cds that belonged to my late dad to the Droitwich Lions.
I got out the sewing machine to finish off my face masks...
I got the final four facemasks finished...
Hubby comes back with son.
I had Kenny the Kenwood out for a quick play..
Banged the cake in the oven.
Light lunch time.
 While watching  
Season 2 of 
"Hell's Kitchen"....
The internet goes off....
Great.....
We leave the final of series 2 until later.
Hubby and son has to go out and do the food shopping for us and our neighbour...
After a few hours of the cake being in the oven.
Time to decorate!
While in Lidl, the panic buying of toilet rolls is starting again....↓
At least they have a pack of 4 Shea Butter Toilet Rolls still on the shelf!
I get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby comes back.
They even got a Wonky Box from Lidl.
We had lots of lovely things in our box.
I used the Kale, courgette and aubergine.
Used it in tonight's veggie meal.
Now to tune it to Boris...↓
It's going to be interesting to see if hubby can work from home, from Thursday....
Fingers crossed once my knee gets better, and I can return back to work in two weeks!
 We finished watching the final of 
Hell's Kitchen season 2.
Then we moved onto Season 3.
Caught up with today's newspapers.
