Rubbing Of The Lamp!!

In a civil war, a general must know exactly when to move over to the other side - Henry Reed
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew
The screw fell out of my watchstrap again. The watch has had the second watchstrap and the screws don't hold them very well.
Couldn't find the screw.
The watch Hubby bought me for my Birthday goes on instead!
It might look expensive,
It only cost under £20! 
Hubby is being dropped down Studley to get the bus to Evesham.
We got out of the house early.
The temperatures has really gone down to 2c.
Had to scrape the windscreen.
Off we go.
Drops him off at the bus stop.
Gets to work.
On goes the winter hat and winter coat.
Turns on my lights.
The newspapers are back in the Corner shop.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Hubby walked up the road to see me.
The bus only goes to Alcester not to Evesham.
I told him to go and have breakfast at the Coffee shop opposite me and I will drop  him at work after I finish my shift. 
Off to work I go...
Everyone was glad I am back.
One parent was going to get touch with me via private message on FB to find out when I was coming back.
Had to give out one BOING as one car went straight under my stick!
Some of the younger children were dressed as Disney characters.
One was a Mermaid.
One was dressed as a Genie.
I asked if I could rub the lamp to make a wish of:
"Can I sing so it won't rain?"
The answer was no!
We all laughed!
While I was in the road, one car was slowly rolling towards me!
Hubby comes out after having a full breakfast.
He goes for a walk to walk it off.
I finish in one piece.
Pop into the Council to ask for a Agenda for tomorrow as there is full council meeting tomorrow.
Now to drop hubby off at work.
On the way back,
I decided to visit a lovely charity shop...
The woman working in there was so surprised to see me being so happy.
It was like a Treasure trove in there.
Got some bits.
Now go home via Henley in Arden....
 Coffee time.
Cut four pieces of cake for my friends.
Liquid lunch time.
Had a chat with hubby on his lunch break.
Had more Christmas earrings↓
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
On the way to put on my lights.
There is a new Pillar Box topper.
I turn on my lights.
Then I help carry a bag of books of my friends down to the Charity shop.
They were glad to see and vice versa.
Got some nice bargains.
Goes and turns on my lights.
Swaps my bargains for my big stick.
Then goes and has a rabbit in the square with lots of friends.
 I gave out cake to all my friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start my shift.
One van's windscreen nearly went tap and crack.
He just stopped there and  showed me his hands as if I wasn't allowed to stop him!
The Genie came back.
I asked "Can I rub your lamp and can I ask for a wish, to sing and it won't rain?"
One parent behind her, "Please say no!"
We all laughed.
Finished in one piece.
Now home.
Bargains I got.
I got the big cake tin for the upcoming Christmas Cake :)
Cup of brew time.
Hubby had to get the bus back.
The bus driver must have been running late as it was putting the foot down!
When hubby came back, he had a sloppy wet one 💋
Nice salad with Quiche for tea.
I had a look in today's newspaper.
We found new series of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare USA on You Tube.
We watched two episodes.
Caught up on the news and newspaper review.
Sleep Tea time.
Now for snuggles under the duvet cover!

Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡

It was so quiet...
Until lorries started parking anywhere, causing the traffic to go round them and suddenly seeing me in the middle of the road!
Good job it was a bit quieter for traffic, god knows what it would have been like if it was busy!
Crossed over under 20 this morning.
It started to get busy for traffic as soon as I finished.
Goes back to Sexy Beast. 
Time for a chat with my parents.
I had a nice long chat.
Someone from my past was visiting his mum.
He used to visit car boots when we used to do them, 10 years ago.
We had a good chat for half an hour.
Told him to keep smiling :)

On the way out, my other "husband" arrives with his dog.I ask "What had he done over the long weekend?"
"Went to Worcester, and spend over my budget?"
"What did you get to spend over your budget?" I asked.
"A watch that nearly cost £300?"
"Rolax?"I asked.
"No, a Casio!"
We bump into two more friends on the way back up.
I leave everyone chatting while I go and fetch my big stick.
