What's That Dropping Down My Leg????

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Tuesday 🙈
Really nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left the house.
The hall car park wasn't open, so I parked around the corner.
2 winter hats were put on, as well at gloves.
It was a cold one.
Turns on my lights.
Time to Rock 'n' Roll...🍭
Some cars were in a hurry, so they didn't stop!
I felt something sliding down by body,
I got back to the pavement just in time!
It fell down by my feet...
Not knickers, or leggings...
But my Bum Bag!
I left it on the gatepost until I finished.
At least I finished in one piece!
I gets my newspaper on the way to the coffee date.
I met my friend for coffee, chat, and nibble.
Couldn't find where you can get toast on the screen.
In the end we went to the Cashier.
I paid for an Americano coffee.
It wasn't on the machine.
I was told to press the Black coffee and then add milk!!!!!
Trouble is they only had semi-skimmed milk!
So I had to go into the supermarket and buy a pint of full fat milk!
The whole time I had taken to get it, buy it and get back to the cafe, I had sung very loud  along with:
Now to get on drinking my "Coffee" and eating my toast!
I needed another coffee after I finished that one.
So I had to get the black coffee and add my milk and enjoy the "Americano" coffee.
Soon as finished, said goodbye to my friend.
One car nearly hit me in the car park, he left it at the last minute to brake.
Didn't I shoot him a look!
Back home in one piece!
It was a bit late to put on my coffee machine.
So I had some ground coffee instead.
After reading my emails, and I ran out of time to go on my spin bike.
Early lunch time!
Now I have my mobile phone playing up!
Great!
Now for part 2.
Winter hat and gloves on.
I put on my lights. 
I only have one friend to chat to up to the start of the afternoon shift.
I wish her a good time at her work.
Now for me to start at mine.
Some stopped the last minute, some just carried on.
At least I finished in one piece.
My other friend arrived and we had a chat by my Sexy Beast.
He had dropped off his car this morning to be MOT. He went to collect it in the afternoon, while walking into the garage forecort, he sort someone has swept up bit of red plastic bumper and windscreen glass into a pile.
He found out who it belonged to, as parked next to his car, was a red one, with the bumper pushed into the car and the back window glass was missing.
We carried on talking until 4.10pm.
It was getting dark by now.
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow.
Then the fun starts...
Stuck behind a RAC van doing 20 m.p.h  and no chance of overtaking it!
Glad to get home after that!
I covered up Sexy Beast.
I got on with making the tea for tonight.
I ran out of time to write yesterday's blog.
Just as got a far as uploading the photos from yesterday.
I updated my CV on the on-line site I go for jobs on.
My Advent calender arrived...
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one 💋
Time for the veggie option.
It was lovely!
Quick read of the newspaper afterwards.
The Beatles release single "I Feel Fine" & "She's a Woman" in 1964.
George Harrison releases "My Sweet Lord" in the USA in 1970.
Sleep Tea Time.
Going to bed early after the day I have had!
Night Night x

Move The Box Or Move The House!

 I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx.
Welcome to my Tuesday ☎
After spending nearly a hour and half asleep on the sofa, I had to get up.
I caught up on the newspapers.
I went upstairs at 6.30 to get dressed while hubby did the breakfast.
One strong coffee with the breakfast.
Hubby a really big sloppy wet 😘 before I left.
I didn't like the look of the sky.
On went my winter coat with boots.
I put my lights on.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Some cars kept driving under my stick.
I nearly got a white Tesla's windscreen that failed to stop the other side of the road.
Back to normal now, lots of traffic to deal with!
Rain kept starting and stopping.
I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Much needed coffee!
Then I had a power nap of half an hour.
Later on, a knock at the door.
Two engineers were at the door to test my telephone line again.
Our Internet Provider doesn't believe our line stops 59...they said 64.
They checked it, they said the line will go to 57 and that's it.
Either the box comes down the road or you have to move your house closer to the box!
They phoned my hubby to tell him the bad news.
Once they were done, I said goodbye to them.
(It was raining again!)
I need lunch after all that talking.
It had finally stopped raining when I left.
On goes the boots and winter coat.
It started to rain while I was waiting to start.
Once I started, the rain stopped!
I saw the white Tesla go past, 
(The one whose windscreen I nearly hit this morning).
Not stopping again on the other side!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now back home.
Once the tea was put in the oven.
Time to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby came home for a wet sloppy 😘
While I finished the blog post.
He dished up the tea.
Afterwards, hubby phoned the Internet Provider up. We had a right know it all on the phone.
The 10 days to cancel our upgrade finished yesterday. 
"Why you have poor speed at night is the neighbourhood all are on the internet..."He said.
Our neighbourhood?????
We are surrounded by factories who bar one are closed at night!
He wouldn't have it.
I had to leave the room...
I went to look at some lights...
I came back in after he finished.
I shook my head and looked at today's newspaper.
Dámaso Pérez Prado  was a Cuban bandleader, pianist, composer and arranger who popularized the mambo in the 1950s. His big band adaptation of the danzón-mambo proved to be a worldwide success with hits such as "Mambo No. 5", earning him the nickname "King of the Mambo". In 1955, Prado and his orchestra topped the charts in the US and UK with a mambo cover of Louiguy's "Cherry Pink (and Apple Blossom White)". He frequently made brief appearances in films, primarily of the rumberas genre, and his music was featured in films such as La Dolce Vita
He died on this day in 1989 aged 72 
Robert Wise  was an American film director, producer, and editor. He won Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture for both West Side Story (1961) and The Sound of Music (1965). He was also nominated for Best Film Editing for Citizen Kane (1941) and directed and produced The Sand Pebbles (1966), which was nominated for Best Picture.
Among his other films are The Body Snatcher (1945), Born to Kill (1947), The Set-Up (1949), The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Destination Gobi (1953), This Could Be The Night (1957), Run Silent, Run Deep (1958), I Want to Live!

Sleep Tea time.
Let's hope we have a Sunny Hump tomorrow and not a wet one 🐫

Cheapside!

Marriage is forever. It's like cement - Peter O'Toole
Welcome to my Thursday in Blackpool ☂

So yummy!
Now to switch rooms.
We packed the rain coats...
I waited for kids to come out of their room.
A pink tram went past!

There was a big queue at the bus stop.

Gets off the bus.

A woman got off the tram with a see-through bag. I looked a bit closer and noticed a 9 inch vibrator in there!
