Terrible First Day Back!

 Life without you was like a broken pencil - pointless 
- Lord Blackadder to Elizabeth I, Blackadder II
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Back to work for me :)
Up early to do the Heardles.
60s Heardles:
My answers:
Breakfast and Brew time.
The thermal vest was put on, with lots of layers.
Now to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
On goes my winter coat, gloves and hats.
Goes and gets my newspaper.
The Christmas lights are still on and looking lovely.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Goes and puts on my lights.
While I was waiting, Traffic lights suddenly appeared and were turned on. I am going to have some fun on the first day back!
Turned on my lights,
Now to start work 🍭
Oh dear, it was chaos!
Two emergency stops, the second one, wound down her window and said "She was hungry for trying not to stop!"
One car drove straight through my raised stick and nearly tapped and cracked the windowscreen.
BOINGs  one after another.
Terrible day to come back to!
I need to get rid of this stress that was building up!
Finished in one piece just about!
I go to Morrisons.
And I started to sing along with the music....
Everyone was looking at me singing along.
I got a Birthday card to a little boy whose Birthday it is tomorrow↓
Back home.
The bed bases were put out for the council to take away.
The coffee machine was put on.
Two council trucks were parked over drive.
They were starting to empty next door.
I did offer if they wanted a drink.
They refused.
I had my coffee.
I started to make tonight's tea with a dose of more singing.
Light lunch time.
As I left the house, one of the workers banged my garden arch with a bed base!
The other worker, asked me who lived there?
I told him, "My neighbour had passed away a day before the Queen in September, and the son was here until last month."
He said, "One bedroom was emptied, the other two bedrooms were full, and all the other rooms were rammed!"
"Wow," I said.
He reckons "It will take 3 days to clear the house and shed!"
I did tell him about the Greenhouse and the boxes of china in there.
I said "Goodbye," and got into Sexy Beast.
There was no room in the normal car park I use, what with the traffic lights, it took me a bit of time to get to the other car park!
Winter coat, winter hats and winter gloves went on. Turned on my lights, the traffic lights are only letting 3 cars through.
Fetched my big stick and waited for my friends to appear in the square.
We are going to have some fun with the low lying sun again!
My friends came to have a rabbit...
When it was time to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Hoping it wasn't going to be a bad one like this morning.
Traffic lights and low lying sun created a right bag of chaos.No traffic was moving as the traffic lights stopped working!
Then the U turns started.
Car drivers still stopping in the Keep Clear space!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
Home time.
Nice cup of brew needed!
Chilled until hubby came home.
He had a sloppy wet one 💋
Time to dish up the grub!
Now to look in the today's newspapers.
UK No.1 on this day in 1957:

US No.1 on this day in 1960:

Then I went for a hot shower.
Sleep Tea Time.
Hoping I have a better day tomorrow!

My answers:
Time for Breakfast and Brew
(With thermal vest)
Now out of the house I go...
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
It was a bit nippy.
Lots of layers while wearing my Summer Coat, Panda hat under my Summer hat.
I got my newspaper.
Got big stick, and went to put on my lights.
Now to enjoy some fun 🍭
Oh dear, lots of BOINGs given out.
Last minute braking doesn't help.
One car braked at the very last minute,
ended up in the Keep Clear Space.
When I got back on the pavement.
The Passenger had her hand over her face!
At least I finished in one piece.
Back home I go.
Coffee machine goes on.
Unloads the dishwasher,
Loads it back up.
Coffee needed!
Looks at what is for tea tonight.
Another cook book arrived \o/
Some nice things to cook in there!
Light lunch time.
Now out for the afternoon shift.
On goes the Summer Coat and Summer Hat.
Puts on my lights.
Now my friends and I go and enjoy some coffee.
2 teas and a coffee = £6.20.
I had to say goodbye to my friends afterwards, as I was due to start my shift.
It carried on from this morning.
Last minute braking, and a couple of BOINGs given out!
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
Cup of brew needed!
Now to get on cooking the tea!
Once done, in the oven they went.
