Coffee With My Cake!

 Just my luck. I was at the airport when my ship came in 
- Henny Youngman
Welcome to my Hump of the week 🐫
Coffee morning with some of my bakes going in....
Breakfast and Brew.
Dressed.
Then to load my bakes into Sexy Beast.
 
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Off to work I went.
I dropped off my bakes first.
The woman I left with: said "they look nice enought to eat!"
"They are nice to eat, and have took photos of them all." As I left.
I put on my summer coat, summer hat, and big big sunglasses.
Off down the road to turn on my lights.
I collected my newspaper on the way back.
Swapped my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Now to walk to my spot!
I had a few BOINGs given out.
At least the sun is out and getting warm!
I was telling everyone about the coffee morning.
I finished in one piece.
Took coat and hat off and went for much needed drink...
I went back to the coffee morning.
My big pink cake had been sold.
However I had to have some of my bakes back as they had far too cake to sell.
Back in Sexy Beast they went. 
I left the Blueberry Muffins there.
(Someone moaned to me about the Blueberry flavour being too strong and was left in its mouth all day. They didn't realise it was me that made them!)
(Backtrack time!)
Back home I go.
I brought in the tins of cake back into the house.
I had a small lunch
(No liquid lunch avaliable)
I talked to hubby on his dinner break.
Now to go to do the afternoon session.
On goes the summer coat, summer hat and big big sunglasses goes on.
Turns on one set of lights.
Drops into the Charity Shop.
They like shortbread especially Strawberry Shortbread. Be dropping mine with them tomorrow.
Turns on my lights and back up the road to get my big stick out of
Sexy Beast.
I have a rabbit with my friends in the square before I started my afternoon shift.
I said goodbye to my friends.
As the sun was shining, I was hoping not to give out any BOINGs, oh I was so wrong!
Boing, Boing and much Boing given out to the car drivers on the otherside of the road.
At least I finished in one piece.
Home Time.
Time for a nice ice lolly!
I started on the tea..
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
Yum!
I looked into today's newspaper.
Film Time....
Then we caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to bed with warm hands!

Now to turn on my other set of lights.
Walking down to my spot, there were queues forming.
Nice bit of parking on Double Yellow lines.
Where he went to get his breakfast, does have a car park he could have used!
So I had fun with the car drivers coming up the road struggled to see my big stick!
It didn't help while I was waiting to cross people over, a black Audi mounted the pavement, inches away from me feet, to get her daughter out of the car so I could cross her over!
"Is your mum trying to take me?" I asked the daughter when her mum drove off the pavement!
Still had a few BOINGs to give out!
Finished in one piece.
Back home for a quick coffee.
Time for a coffee and chat session.
I had a go on the raffle.
Bought the chocolate cake, small cake and coffee.

One friend left early. Another friend arrived just as I was leaving. We had a good chat outside with the two other friends we chat to in the afternoon.
Back home.
Liquid lunch time.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
(I didn't get the winning phone about the raffle)
Just parks up and see a relation of mine with a Birthday present walking to the Bakery for a party.
I gets my Winter coat, hat and gloves on.
I asked someone who had a go on the raffle: "If they had won anything?" 
"No, have you?" they asked.
"Nope,"I replied.
"You normally win something."
"Must have broke a mirror," I said.
Walks up to turn on my lights.
Just as I walking down to turn my other lights.
My friend appeared with his daughter.
I gave him a big hug as he was being took into the Bakery/Coffee shop for a surprise 80th Birthday Party.
I wished him a Happy 80th Birthday.
I heard the cheers when he went upstairs for his surprise party, and a 80th Birthday Balloon was on the Handrail.
Turns my lights on, walks back up, my friend appeared and we went into the nearby corner shop.
There were free ale being given away.
Over 18's only and two per person.
Be rude not to have two!
Collects my big stick, and the other friend arrives for a rabbit in the square.
Time to say goodbye.
Low lying sun again to deal with.
Three cars one after another just straight under my big stick!
The third drive put her hand up as she drove under it!
One lorry driver on the otherside of the road couldn't believe what he saw.
BOING,BOING for the traffic on the otherside that wasn't stopping either!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
