Long Weekend Is Coming Up!

When a piece gets difficult, make faces - Vladimir Horowitz
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈🎈
Next door is supposing to have a full rewire done.
I am going out for coffee and chat this morning ot get away from the drilling that will be happening...
Breakfast and Brew.
The thermal vest still going on!
Off out I go.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
I still put on my winter coat and summer hat as there is still a bit of a chill.
I go and put on my lights and fetch the newspaper.
I swapped my newspaper for my big stick!
Let's go and put my other lights on.
After they were put on, 
Time to start!
It's a good job I put on my waterproof boots and it started to rain.
Cars going to fast in the rain, and having to slam their brakes on!
People still parking on the double yellow lines!
Lots of BOINGs given out as well.
Finished in one piece.
Now to B3
Time for coffee and nibbles.
I had a yak with my friend.
I decided to see if there was any work going on in next door's house.
I wished my friend a good Bank Holiday Weekend.
Off home I went to avoid bad drivers on the way.
No work van, hubby contacted the Council.
The rewiring has been cancelled as they have to do other repairs.
Not enough time for a liquid lunch.
Let's Roll with...
Now out to do the final shift of the week!
On does the summer coat and summer hat.
Walks up the road and discoveries there is Traffic Lights.
Going to have fun later!
Walks down to turn on the other set of lights.
Nips into the Charity Shop.
Picks up some great vinyl!
One friend to go into school for a Book Fair.
My "Husband" turned up and we went and sat in the square for a rabbit until I started my shift.
I wished him a good Bank Holiday weekend.
Now to start.
Traffic was building up because of the Traffic lights.
People were stopping in the Keep Clear space.
Some BOINGs were given out!
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
Time for a brew!
Puts the tea in the oven.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
Let's look into today's newspaper.

What's Worst Than Finding A Worm In An Apple??

I can live for two months on a good compliment - Mark Twain
 Welcome to my Hot Feeling Tuesday 💟
I was awake at 5am.
Cold shower.
Downstairs to enjoy a brew...
Back upstairs just as the alarm was going off.
Opened the curtains↓
I'm glad it's a bit cloudy.
Heardle Time.
Heardle 60s: 
My son's answers↓
Breakfast and brew.
Now out for some fresh air!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 😘
Puts on my summer coat.
Gets my neighbour's magazine and my newspaper.
Nice bit of parking on double yellow lines on each side of the road↓
The X19 bus just about got through the Gap!
Collected my big stick, and went up the road to turn on my lights.
Turns on my lights.
Now to Rock and Roll...🍭
I was glad it was cloudy...
A few BOINGs had to be given out.
One car does the Limbo dance under my stick.
The Audi afterwards does the same, but not before he received a BOING and looking up while I did it!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Put the coffee maker on.
I have a blood test in 2 hours.
Tried to sit outside,
It was too warm!
Back inside with the fan on!
Sorted out what we are having for tea.
Off I go for the blood test.
Only waits 5 minutes.
In and out and back home!
Light lunch
Then back out to round 2:
Even hotter when I get to work!
On goes my Summer coat.
Turn on my lights.
Buys my ice lolly.
Collects my big stick.
Off to sit in the park!
My view:
Who did I see coming out of the road, at the end of the park?
My younger Gold Digging Younger Brother in his white van. I could tell he was looking at me when he went past.
I have nothing to say to him at all!
One friend appeared and shared a doughnut with me, however it had the hole but no jam was in it!
We had a good rabbit like you do!
Once it was nearly time to start.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for an action packed second half!
One red BMW tried to speed past me, until my big stick came out and it had to stop!
I mentioned where I be wearing ice cubes to one dad, and he looked round at me when he got across the road!
One man gave me a compliment about he good I do the job.
He said,"I come from Worcester everyday, and go through Inkberrow. The Lollypop lady has no clue on stopping the traffic like you do. You just stick in out! I saw you this morning stopping the traffic!"
I thanked him for his compliment.
Few more BOINGs handed out as well.
It was trying to rain...
I loved every drop of rain...
It didn't rain much....
But I needed every drop!
Just as I got finished,
I got chatting to someone about the plums in his garden.
He has 300 plums in his garden.
I told him, "My Bramley Apple Tree is heaving wiht apples this year, only 2 years ago, I made 38 apple pies, and still had loads of apples left over.Had to keep getting the pastry from all the supermarkets. One freezer is still full of them."
Then he said this to me
"What's worst than finding a worm in your apple?"
"Don't know," I replied.
"When you chew into an apple and only find half a worm!"
I laughed at that!
Then we got into talking about Pear Trees, Gooseberries, and cherries for 20 minutes.
I said goodbye to him.
And back to Sexy Beast I go.
Then back home I go.
Puts the tea in the oven.
Get's yesterday's blog post wrote.
