Pressing The Button!

 I started  out with nothing and I've still got most of it left - Groucho Marx
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start the day!
Brew with breakfast.
Gets the kids up for school.
I give out all sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ to everyone.
It's looking quite nice out for a change!
Even the big big sunglasses came out!
Time for the summer coat to go on!
While I was waiting to turn my lights on, it started to spit with rain...
Tree Pic.
Now for the fun to start....
There was a big hole further down the road, which was causing traffic problems...
Hopefully the hole will be filled in later on!
Nearly all the car drivers stopped,
Which amazed me for a Monday!
No sign of the lambo today :(
Finished in one piece!
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Managed to park outside the shop without any problems for a change!
Back home.
Much needed coffee!
Kenny came out for a quick play.
Once the Banana Bread went into the oven.
I got to work with a Butternut Squash.
I cut it in half. 
Fried some mushrooms, garlic and peppers.
Added to the butternut squash and put it in the oven for later.
Next was to write yesterday's blog post.
After the fun I had of not be able to clean the toilets at work on Friday.
The emails battle started.
"I use to much toilet cleaner!"
I was told....
"Funny I have to clean 26 toilets everynight, so I have to have a night off from cleaning them?"I replied.
He even asked if I wanted to do some overtime next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No sign of my tax they took off me last month, go and tell the tax office, I was told, I replied to that, I already have, and you shouldn't have put me on the BR code.
He has move my probation meeting forward to next month instead of July.
I wanted the Monday not the Tuesday, as I can give him the keys back and be home before my hubby gets home....
I must have pushed his button as he chose not to answer any more emails after I sent that.
Light lunch time.
Now onto the afternoon shift.
It has stopped raining when I got into Sexy Beast.
On the way, a black Audi was doing 25 m.p.h in a 40 limit.As the next available safe time I overtook it, there was a convoy forming when I looked back in the distance.
Those dark clouds are worrying↑
I still put on summer coat...
The rain kept off \o/
Some of the parents said 2 of the 3 schools are closed on Friday for a TE day.
As the High School is open, I still have to work....
Finished in one piece!
Back home.
Coffee and crumpets are needed↑
I see the Banana bread is being liked↓
Off I go with my rain mac and a handful of 60s Cds...
While I was on the way, I was nearly stuck for 20 minutes behind a car doing 20 m.p.h in a 50 limit. At the right moment and Safest, I overtook it. The convoy behind it was well long in the distance.
Back to the singing along..
I load up the skip with both mop buckets.
Hoping my vacuum cleaner will be sorted out tomorrow....
Finished on time...
Now back onto the singing along...
Back home.
Now for tea.
Hubby is visiting his dad.
He will have his half tomorrow for lunch.
Time to chill with a look in today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea followed...
I kept the bed warm for when hubby came back....
I tried to keep awake......Zzzzzz

Got newspaper.
Back home.
Nice coffee to warm up with.
Hubby phones up his Doctors about his High Temperature.
They advise him to have a Covid Test.
While he is booking his test online to go to the near-by walk in centre.
His boss had left a "nice" message on his phone, on why he hasn't come into work, and not to think about working from home and get into the office now!
I phoned up my doctors about my 6 week cough I have got.
The Doctor phoned me back and advised me to have Covid Test.
I went on-line to book a test at the nearby walk in centre.
Now out of the house.
