The man on the till didn't understand Crunchie Friday Feeling...
Now to go for a coffee...
I order a Bacon Bap, coffee and toast..
I have another coffee.
The friends I would at the coffee morning with yesterday, turned up on there Tandum.
I waved to them and said "Good Morning."
I wished them a good holiday, and hope the weather is nice.
We leave....
Now to try to find a parking space....
No spaces by the Chemists, there was one space opposite the Charity shop. Someone came into the car park after me, and was well pissed off I had the last parking space.
Now to look what bargains I can find.
Gets some bargains.
Nips into Co-op to get my newspaper.
Back to Sexy Beast we go.
Home would Bound...
Unloads my bargains.
Liquid lunch time.

Banana bread is done!
I put the tea in the oven.

Trying To Save Some Money!

 One can never be too thin or too rich - Wallis Simpson
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Lots of sunshine 😎
Breakfast and Brew.
Puts the boxes of books in Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
On goes the summer hat and summer coat.
Big, big sunglasses.
I go and turn on my lights.
I pick up the newspaper on the way back up.
I swap the newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Let's go to work ...🍭
It started to cloud over.
Taxi driver drove straight through, as I was standing in the middle of the road.
(Time for the glitter gun as I am not bright enough!)
Just as I was finishing, I have had a headache come on!)
Once finished, I dropped off more boxes of books to the Charity Shop.
Then home I went.
Coffee time.
Now to save some money....
Both kids will have to pay for their mobile phone contracts, as I have cancelled them.
Moving onto Sky+ box.
They don't make that box no more.
(Plus I am not paying what they want for me to watch Sky)
Either lower the bill or I am cancelling it.
Sky Q was a lot cheaper and no installation charge either.
(I have a Sky+ box full of programmes from 13 years!)
 After sorting all out of that,
It was lunch time. 
Liquid lunch time I mean...
Talks to hubby on his lunch break.
Now back out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the Summer Coat and Summer hat.
I turn on one set of light.
I walks down to the Charity Shop.
*Bargain Time*
Hubby will enjoy listening to it in his car.
I turned on my other lights and went to get my big stick out of Sexy Beast.
We all meet up in the square for a rabbit.
I said goodbye to all my friends,
now to start the afternoon shift.
Oh dear, still car driver ignoring my big stick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Home time.
In need of a brew!
Now for a bit of Bond....
Tea time.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Netflix time...
Sleep Tea time.
More fun to be had tomorrow!

Showing Me The Gums!

You will find my last words in the blue folder on my desk -

Welcome to my Thursday Fun 👄
 Didn't have enough time to do the Heardles.
Breakfast and Brew.
As well as the thermal vest and those sexy lumo trousers went on.
 Now to leave the house.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
There was a chance of rain again.
Gets to work.
On goes the waterproofs.
Turns on my lights, and gets my newspaper.
I tuck my newspaper into my winter coat and walk up to turn on those lights as well.
Returns to Sexy Beast to swap the newspaper for my big stick.
Now walks to my spot in the pouring rain.
There was no room for the Flower lorry to park, so it carried on.
Another lorry parks on double yellow lines.
They find it funny parking there!
At least the rain has stopped.
Still gave a few BOINGs out.
Finished in one piece.
Applying for another Councillor job in another Parish now.
Off home I go.
I wrote yesterday's blog post up to the liquid lunch.
I didn't on my sexy lumo trousers.
Off to the afternoon shift.
I started to rain on the way to work.
It stopped when I parked up.
I still put on my waterproof shoes just in case.
I walk and turn on two sets of lights.
I nip into the Charity Shop for a mooch...
Then back to  Sexy Beast to get my big stick.
My friends join me to have a good rabbit!
Those dark clouds are coming in thick and fast!
I said goodbye to my friends and started my shift.
A few BOINGs given out to those on the otherside of the road for failing to stop.
I had my big stick just out in front of me a little bit as the wind was getting up.
One red car came up the road, slammed on the brakes in front of me, and started banging her gums at me.
(IF she wound down her passenger window, I could have heard what she what saying!)
She then sped off!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Back home I go.
Brew time.
Out comes the sewing machine.
Wonder Woman themed cushion.
Birthday Card.
Then I made a quick easy tea.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one 💋
Tea is served.
Leeks wrapped in ham, in cheese sauce.
Wrapped up the Birthday Present.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
