The Yellow Peril Returns!

 The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train - Murphy's Law.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
I was so stiff from sleeping on the sofa last night.
I woken up by sleeping beauty....
While he was making breakfast, I got dressed.
(No thermal vest needed)
Time for...
We did all the Heardles...
My favourite was Heardle 60s...
Now to leave house for job...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
I fetched the newspaper and next door's neighbour's magazine.
It was going to rain, 
On goes the winter coat, with summer hat and no gloves.
I turn on my lights...
Let's hope the car drivers are gentle with me after the last few days I have had!
No chance!
One car went straight under my big stick, and was inches away from his windscreen.
I was in the middle of the road, and the Learner left it a bit too late too brake.
An emergency stop was done, inches away from  me!
Many of parents were glad to see me back.
They asked how the funeral went.
I told them what went on, and they couldn't believe it.
"I won't be seeing them again anytime soon \o/" 
I said.
Then a BMW driver tried her luck!
My big stick was out in front,
Windscreen or stop
Emergency stop at the last minute.
I safely got back to the pavement.
The rain was carrying on.
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Goes back out...
Coffee Date.
I chats with the current postman to find out what's happening with the repick.
The whole office has had a repick, all depends on how long you have been there.
I would have been there for 32 years....
Now for coffee!
My friend joined for a good yak!
Another coffee and nibble.
Yum Yum.
Enjoyed the chat, coffee and nibbles.
Now back home.
Didn't feel like soup.
Turkey and Mustard sandwich.
Now out for part 2 of the day.
Various weather reports say either cloudy or rain.
I got out my summer coat.
Turns on my lights.
Waits for my friends to arrive. 
My friends appear.
Time for a rabbit...
Wished them a good weekend.
Now to do the final shift of the week.
Oh dear back to it again.
Nearly clipped a windscreen as it went under my big stick.
One man is a red car went under the stick.
I did the BOING, he turned into the side road.
Kept shouting at me!
I crossed more kids over the road.
He then came back for another go at me.
He parked on double yellow lines and delivered two bags of food at the house opposite me.
He kept shouting at me, I ignored him and carried on doing my job.
After that fun episode, nothing else happened.
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
In need of a brew!
Now to get the blog updated.
Wrote about yesterday.
Now to put the blog back on!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one when he comes home.
He does the tea....
Tea is done.
Yum!
Looked into today's newspaper.

Life without you was like a broken pencil - pointless.
Lord Blackadder to Elizabeth 1, Blackadder 2 
Welcome aboard to Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with Breakfast.
Then before there is a rush for the bathroom,
I'm in there first...
Thermal vest goes on....
Now back on that Wobbly work wheel 🎑
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
At least the sun is coming out!
Two winter hats and warm gloves are being worn this morning!
I turned on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
Back to normal again....
Car drivers just not bothering to stop...
Few BOINGs handed out for those that didn't.
Some on the otherside of the road, just don't car eless and keeps going, even when the big stick is coming out!
It didn't help with my bum bag slipping down my body and dropping on the pavement!
(Needs to tighten it up!)
Oh well, at least I survived the morning shift!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine goes on.
Now to break in the new bread maker.
Nice bit of bread mix to go on with...
Cheddar and Sun Dried Tomato.
Plus the soup maker goes on as well.
Once everything starting making everything.
It's coffee time!
Now to carry on writing yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
Soup is served up.
Chilli Chicken,Leek and Parsnip Soup
The bread was ready just before I left.
It smelt lovely!
Now for part 2.
The sun might be out, but that cold blast from the wind.
Still two hats and warm pair of gloves goes on.
Puts on my lights.
Going to have some fun with that low lying sun.
Met up with my 2 friends for a good Rabbit.
Time goes quick when you chat.
Said goodbye to them.
Let the fun start!
One white car was coming up the road.
Stuck my big stick out,
Guess what?
She put her foot down and went under it at 50 m.p.h!
She had a extra special BOING when she went under my stick!
Still had to slow down to turn left up the road!
One red car stopped over the road in the Keep Clear space, looked at me and my big stick, drove down a bit and got out of the car and came up to have a word.
He is going to say sorry for parking in the Keep Clear space.I was wrong, He wanted to know where the red school was?
I gave him directions, I could have acted dum, but I didn't.He turned round and went past without saying thank you.
Still had fun giving out BOINGs.
At least I survived!
Home time.
I covered up Sexy Beast as there will be a frost tomorrow.
Now for a much needed brew!
Marmite on some nice bread too↓
Sorted out tonight's tea.
Pizzas went into the oven.
I did my meat free Stir Fry.
Watched a new series on NETFLIX

Welcome Back!

 Better the chill blast of winter than the hot breath of a pursuing elephant - Chinese Proverb
Welcome to the start of November🌟
Nice warm hug to start off Monday.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on....
Dressed.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
I didn't park in my normal place as the Covid-19 Boosters are being given out.
4 layers of clothing under my winter coat.
The big big sunglasses are still being worn...
Now to put on my lights...
Let's do this...🍭
Everyone was glad I was back!
Now for the fun to start...
I had my stick raised, one red Mini came out of the Parish Hall Car Park, then straight under my stick....
A grey BMW was speeding down the road, suddenly had to find his brake pedal as I lowered the stick down!
I had my stick out, and one car on the otherside, didn't stop and carried on speeding up the road!
I survived until the afternoon shift!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Unloads the dishwasher.
Gets Spin Bike out.
Now for some Heat!
Did the Spin,
Cools down.
Now for some coffee..
Then I writes yesterday's blog post.
Lunchtime.
I ask Alexa,"If it's going to rain this afternoon?"
She said, "Just clouds..!"
Now for round 2.
It was still cold and I didn't like the look of the dark clouds that was gathering...
I put on my winter coat.
I goes and puts on my lights then I just have to rabbit to two people like you do!
I said goodbye to them and got chatted to another friend.
Then I felt spots of rain...
Great!
As soon as I started my job the rain came down!
Stopped, carried on 20 minutes, stopped.
In the meantime cars were going under my stick as if I wasn't there!
As soon as I put my stick in Sexy Beast it started to rain, and carried on until I got home. 
Nice to have a brew when I got in.
My new watch arrived.
I did a early meat free stir fry.
(Ate it before I could take a photo).
Carried on watching Heat.
I finally got to watch all 2 hours and 55 minutes of it \o/
The next film I wanted to watch wasn't on Netflix or Prime Video.
I will have to dig out the DVD of it out for Wednesday...
The film I want is:
Next film I watched was:
Hubby lost at snooker, and his team lost 4-1.
I said to him, "That snooker cue is going to start our bonfire next weekend!"
He didn't find that funny!
I had a quick look in the newspaper...
"Cool Hand Luke", starring Paul Newman, George Kennedy, and Strother Martin, is released in 1969.
"Titanic" directed by James Cameron, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet premieres at the Tokyo International Film Festival (Academy Awards Best Picture 1998) in 1997.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
I kept the bed warm for when Hubby came home.
The way the temperatures are dropping,
The Thermals knickers be back on tomorrow!
