That's A Big Hedgehog!

What a nasty mind you have Bruce.
Where did you learn to think like a woman? -
 Frank G. Slaughter
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with.
Brew with breakfast.
It was still a bit windy outside.
On goes that Thermal vest.
I looks through the net curtain covering the front door and notices a large round shape on the front lawn.
That's a big hedgehog!
(A bit difficult to see in the dark)
I gets ready to leave and see what is on the lawn.
It turned out to be my purple topiary ball that hangs by my front door!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
There was a chance of rain,
So on went the boots, as well as winter hat and gloves.
I turned on my lights.
Now onto the fun with my big stick 🍭
I had a few BOINGs to deal with.
One van driver gave a black look after he went around the bus and had to stop to let me cross some kids over!!!
I swore blind that blue 20 plate Skoda went past, that I have been hunting down since last year, when she drove around my hand and up the pavement.It might help if I had remembered the licence plate the first time!
It did start to rain just before I finished.
Finished in one piece!
I collected the newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Knock on the door, the Hermes delivery man was glad to find me, he had been all over the estate to find me.
(I forgot to add house to the address)
I also had a knock of the door, it was my Postman.
(At least he has no trouble finding my house)
I was supposed to have a delivery of anti-hippo wrinkle eye cream.
The box had been damaged in the delivery process, so was send back to Amazon.
I just had a tiny nib of cream left!!
Put another order in, so hopefully it will here tomorrow in one piece!
Going back to my Dunelm order from Christmas Eve......
No refund after I requested one 3 weeks ago.
Fobbed off left, right and centre.
Friday's message was waiting to hear from the store's manager to give the ok for a refund.
Today's message: Can't find your order at all!
We have to see the IT team.
(Funny I have a record of the amount going out of my bank account and the order number!)
Not having much luck at all with this order!
Coffee time!
I had a chat with my friend up to lunchtime.
Time for some homemade soup.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
No low lying sun to worry about!
On goes my winter hats and gloves.
I saw my friend and his dog going down the alley.
(I will meet up with him later on)
I go and put on my lights.
My friends arrive for a rabbit.
We all say what we have been doing the weekend etc.
That half an hour went quick.
Said goodbye to everyone.
Now for fun number 2 🍭
Plenty of BOINGs given out!
Some looks could kill from some car drivers when they have to stop!
The sun poked through the clouds at one point.
Low lying sun alert!
At least I finished in one piece!
Time for a quick brew...
I wrote and published yesterday's blog.
Now to get on with meat-free Stir Fry.
Afterwards to look in today's newspaper.

Hubby's snooker time was 2-0 down when I asked how it was going.
I went off to have a hot shower.
When I asked him again,
He won his match \o/
It was now level 2-2.
I had my Sleep Tea.
His team won 3-2 \o/
I kept the bed warm on his return.

What A Bombshell!

People who live in glass houses might as well answer the door - Morey Amsterdam
Welcome to my Tuesday 💣💥
Much needed hug with brew!
Woke up the kids for school.
Everyone has sloppy wet 💋💋💋 off me before I left.
No big big sunglasses today.
I still wearing the thermals!
Gets ready to turn on the lights.
Today's photo of the tree.
As the norm, cars are failing to stop.
One man in a blue skoda wearing a facemask completely ignored me and carried on driving!
It was well busy this morning. 
There was a back-log of traffic on my side of road, as one car further down the road refused to back up to allow some lorries through!
Finished in one piece!
Goes back to Sexy Beast, and who should be parked next to it....
The blue Skoda that failed to stop earlier on!
I gets the newspaper on the way home.
Nothing is happening at my late dad's house,
Not heard a bean from the Solicitor's either!
Now for a much needed coffee!
I have to update the blog with two blog posts.
My playlist gets played, singing plenty, with plenty of coffee being drunk!
I feeling so cold...
Back on the soup for lunch!
I keep on the thermals for the second part of Lollipop.
I was glad I was crossing back and forward over the road to keep warm.
I finished in one piece.
Once I finished I had a chat with my friend for a bit about bingewatching series.
Back home again.
I puts the kid's tea in the oven on low.
I find the wage slip from this new cleaning job dangling from letter box...
I open it to my surprise...
I get taxed £57.20 on my wages for two weeks!!!!!!!!! 
I have been put on emergancy tax code....
(I don't earn enough to pay tax...)
I even sent them over the tax code from my P45 I got from the job I left!
(Going to find out tomorrow if I am going to be reinbusted for the money I spent getting the clearing supplies for the house I clean! )
I was told to phone the tax office..
(Which I will do tomorrow!)
Now off to work...
As soon as I get into the car to go...
The rain is back!
Plenty of 70's tunes to calm me down from that  💣 💥
Gets in.
2 vacuum cleaners waiting for me.
(One is for the house I clean)
Packs one of them on the Mule.
I do what I have to do.
However the vacuum is making a terrible noise and not sucking up very good....
(I will try the other one tomorrow) 
I get finished on time.
More 70s to listen to going home.
Nice bit of tea for me when I get home.
Afterwards I went on the Government Gateway and saw I have two different tax codes for the two jobs I have.
I will have to phone up the tax office and see what is happening about my tax codes and this £57.20 took off my wages!
Watched today's Judge Rinder.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Time for some much needed sleep tea.
Those sexy lumo trousers will be coming out tomorrow= Wet Hump Day 🐫
