Goes into the Parish Centre.
I was surprised by what I was told...
"You are not supposed to park in here as you are on holiday from your Lollipop job!"
"I am on Council business,"I replied to that.
Then she goes on about things.
(I had to burn some time as the Charity shop doesn't open until 9am)
She goes on about her dog and how it died aged 11 years old.

Welcome to my Thursday 💥
The sun was up!
My late father-in-law's funeral is next Wednesday.
I did all the Heardles, except Heardle 70s which turned out to feature in the film,"Deliverance"
Now time for brew and breakfast.
No thermal vest today!
Long blue dress on instead.
Now out into the sunshine...
I give hubby his sloppy wet one.
 The big big sunglasses kept put on.
I gets the newspaper and chats to someone who knew the man that died last Wednesday.
"He was 64, and not a nice man." He said.
Then he told me about the dealings he had with him, which was no nice.
I wished him a good morning, and got my summer coat on.
I put on my lights.
Now to Rock 'n' Roll.
Again, people not stopping.
Lots of BOINGs handed out.
One woman in a blue car just drove into my stick, It hit the front of her car, went bang, and bounced off.She kept driving!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I goes past the Charity Shop and notices 2 nice pictures that I like.
I park up, grab a bag and my facemask and off to the Charity Shop!
Their card machine wasn't working, so I went to get some money out.
I got the big picture of flowers.
The manager of the shop saw me go past and saw me looking at the pictures.
I showed the picture of the two pictures I bought two weeks ago.
She said I did a good job and perhaps get a job as a Interior Designer.
I laughted and said it was too stressful!
Put all the nice things in SEXY BEAST.
Did some shopping in the Co-op while I was there.
Back home.
Too our recycle bins off the pavement.
Coffee machine went on.
Unloaded the shopping.

Coffee time!
I caught up with some blogging.
Then armed with a hammer, I put the 3 pictures,I bought on the walls.
Now for some soup.

The fun I had driving to my job.
One Corsa tried to take me out, pulling out of a junction, then he braked at the last minute!
Some was reversing and not signelling when she was backing into!
I was glad to park up!
On goes the summer coat.
On the way to turn on my lights.
