Watch Out For That!

The English winter - ending in July, to recommence in August - Lord Byron
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice hug to start Friday off with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
I add a bread mix to the breadmaker before I leave.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
Time for those big big sunglasses to come out.
Still had the winter hats and gloves on.
The three way traffic lights were working now.
I turned on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
It was quiet for a Friday.
&
Cars were stopping!!!
Then the fun started...
First two Police Officers paid a visit to one of houses just up from me.
I crossed them over when they had finished.
One houseowner who I talk to, said to me:
"I am expecting a delivery from IKEA between 8.20 9.20."
I replied,"A white van, with two men eyeballing me has come down this road twice, the same van is just coming out of the near-by road." 
He looked up and said,"Thanks!"
The van stopped out outside his house.
Three cars overtook the van.
The fourth car, which was a black BMW overtook the van.
She forgot there was a Pedestrian Refuge Island.
She had to swerve to avoid it at the last minute.
Good job I wasn't in the middle of the road at the time!
The van was soon gone, and the traffic started to build up again.
I finished in one piece!
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Empties the dishwasher and loads it back up.
My friend pops in for a coffee and chat.
She is going to see Paul Carrick in concert in Birmingham tonight.
Save getting the late train back home,
Book a hotel and come back in the morning.
I wished her a good luck for the night out tonight.
I started filling in the answers for each section of the crystal course I have been doing.
1 & 2 done.
3 not there.
Started on section 4 questions up to lunchtime.
Finished off that lovely hot soup...
The bread turned out lovely!
Plus my bulk order of sleep tea arrive too :)
I looked outside.
Rain.
Time for those sexy lumo trousers to come out again. 
Put boots on, winter hats and waterproof gloves.
Turns on the lights.
Only had one friend to rabbit with as the other friend was getting the overtime in.
I wished him a good weekend.
Now to start in the rain.
Still a bit of traffic.
Parents wished me a happy weekend.
A few BOINGs were given out as some cars refused to stop .
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
I puts the fish and chips in the oven.
Tumble Drier goes on.
Now to get on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one.
Tea is done.
Too quick for a photo!
Finished off writing yesterday's blog post.
Then to look in today's newspaper.

Writing, Spinning, & Need Of A Strong Coffee!

Everything takes longer than it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Sexy Beast looks like a need a scrape.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The sun might be coming up.
It's still freezing!
On goes 2 winter hats and the big big gloves.
I put on my lights.
Now to see how many tanks I can spot this morning...
Only saw two, is better than what I normally see...
Nice the normal white car on the otherside doesn't stop for me, she might be running out of luck soon!
Still had to do a few more BOINGs!
At least I finished in one piece!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Chops some veggies and put on the soup maker.
Coffee time.
While I had some spare time.
Time to reply to the American Prison Pen Pal who sent me 2 letters last week.
I wrote him 6 pages.
That should keep him happy :)
The soup was ready to dish up.
I had a Labour leaflet pushed through the door.
Didn't knock the door.
Only hear the Councillors when they want to be re-electioned! 
Dished up my soup.
Chicken,Leak,and Parsnip.
My new arier arrived.
I got in touch with Dunelm for my refund.
It is now been SIX  weeks since I put the order in. Waiting 3 weeks, and then cancelled it.
Now the excuses pile up:
1: The Manager at my local store hasn't received my order to give me a refund.
2: The IT department are working on it to find my order.
3: Today's excuse, is the only member of their IT team is now on ANNUAL LEAVE and I have to wait for them to come back!
I got sick of this utter crap and wrote a email to their CEO. If I don't hear nothing from him, I will go further up the food chain! 
Now off to do my afternoon shift.
Next door's carers had to move their car again.
On goes one winter hat and lightweight gloves.
I got talking to my friend who has had his hand op the other week. He had come back from Stratford upon Avon on the bus and dropped his earing aid. He was just on the way to the bus stop when I got chatting.
I told his wife, "Since I have been wearing a facemask, I can't wear earrings, as they don't stop long in my ear lobes!"
Puts on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
The sun kept appearing from behind the clouds.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to have some fun 🍭
Oh dear, had 3 straight cars go under my stick.
BOING x 3
Some cars on the underside had to stop very quick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Hometime
Now to get changed into the pink lyrca!
I watched the last of The Irishman while doing my spinning.
Then onto the abs machine...
(I'm going to hurt tomorrow!)
Cools down.
Now to make the Meat Free Stir Fry.
Yum.
Out comes the Breadmaker.
I can't find my lovely Breadmaking book.
So from memory in it all goes...
On for 4 hours!
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons, ) was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums around the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He died on this day in 1985 aged 54. 
"Reach Out I'll Be There' by The Four Tops, released by Tamla Motown in 1966.
USA No.1 on this day in 1976: 
Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
'Wuthering Heights' by Kate Bush, released by EMI in 1978.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
The bread came out alright!
Found my good Bread Maker book as well.
Hubby's team came back from 2-0 down to 2-2.
Even though Hubby lost his match on the pink.
I climbed into that warm bed...and fell off to sleep like a log!
