The Fun Returns!

Better the chill blast of winter than the hot breath of a pursuing elephant - Chinese proverb
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start Hump Day πŸͺ
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest and leggings go on.
First day back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I leave.
It's really cold outside.
Good job I covered up Sexy Beast last night. 
Out comes the lollipop stick.
2 winter hats and thermal gloves goes on.
I put on my  lights.
Now for the fun to start!
It was so quiet.
I later learnt, the High School is open due to Covid Testing.
The red school had 1 year in,
Blue school was closed,
The Infant school only had one year in also.
Still had to do two BOINGs on two car roofs that went under my stick.
I did see one tank driver who didn't clear the ice off its windscreen.
I crossed over about 12, instead of the normal 30+.
Finished in one piece.
I nipped into Co-op to get some bits.
Collected the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
I put the coffee machine on.
Now to get the house sorted.
Loaded up the dishwasher.
Put the soup maker away
(I will be got out again later)
Had some more Me to You Bears.
Chattered to the Postman.
I got a reply from one Prisoner I am writing to on Death Row in the USA.
Coffee time.
Writes yesterday's blog post up to dinnertime.
Time for some nice homemade soup.
Now for part two of fun fun fun!
The thermal gloves and 2 winters hat go on.
I turn on my lights.
While I wait for my 2 friends to arrive.
I look at the sky......
I'm sure the low lying sun will return later.
My friends arrived, time for a good rabbit,
The car park to the old Medical Centre was fenced off.
My friend showed me the plans for the old Medical Centre↓↓
My other friend gave me a bag of DVDs and 2 muffins.
Back to Sexy Beast with them before I started.
I'm sure my Father-in law will like viewing them.
Afterwards they are being donated to the local Charity Shop. 
As I said goodbye to my friends and start my shift.
The low lying Sun was back!
I had to a few BOINGs on the other side as cars were failing to stop.
Crossed over the same number from this morning.
Glad I finished in one piece.
Home Time!
I covered up Sexy Beast,
As it is going to get freezing tonight.
A much needed Brew...
Finished writing my blog post from yesterday.
Put tea in the oven.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet one when he came back.
Tea is served.
Once finished,
Dish washer loaded up and put on.
Now for the soup maker to go back on.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

New Apples & Pears!

 Don't forget to tell everyone it's a secret - Gerald Lieberman
Welcome to a interesting Thursday 🌺
Nice warm hug with brew.
Wakes up one son for school.
I gave out plenty of wet sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Out I go!
On goes the summer coat!
Now for the fun to start 🎈
Plenty of cars stopping for me.
One woman in a yellow Nissan, thought about stopping, stopped, then carried on....
Plenty of waves people were giving me.
I was getting warm under the collar!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Coffee time.
I wrote yesterday's blog.
I had a satellite repair man to come round to look at our satellite dish.
There could be 3 things the problem.
He gave me 3 prices and went away.
The carpet fitter arrived at 1pm.
I gave him a much needed coffee before he started.
I told my son to offer the carpet fitter a drink while I was out!
I left early to get some petrol after I had my lunch.
I'm glad I bought a bottle of water with me!
Summer coat goes back on.
Now for more fun to be had 🎈
I was stood in the middle of the road, when I heard a car speeding up the road behind me.
He soon had to stop when he saw me.
I turned round to cross back over the road, and pointed to the word "STOP" on my lollypop stick.
The man in the black 65 reg BMW just looked at me!
Had some more car drivers go under my lollypop stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
Chattered with my friend for 20 minutes after I finished. 
Back home, and the carpet fitter is still fitting the carpet up the stairs. 
I made the carpet fitter another drink as my kids didn't.
Once the carpet fitter had finished, I thanked him for doing a very good job.
Very pleased :)
We had some oddments of carpet,
Which we use as rugs at a later date.
Tidied the house.
Even one of the kids got out Henry to hoover the new carpet.
Now to celebrate with Pork Balls!
Then to water all the plants out in the front garden and the beans in the back garden.
The stuff to go to the tip is getting a bit bigger.
Hubby booked the Satellite repair man is came earlier is coming out on Saturday morning.
Quick read of today's newspaper.
