It's Coming Down (Again)!

Life without you was like a broken pencil - pointless.
Lord Blackadder to Elizabeth 1, Blackadder 2 
Welcome aboard to Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with Breakfast.
Then before there is a rush for the bathroom,
I'm in there first...
Thermal vest goes on....
Now back on that Wobbly work wheel 🎑
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
At least the sun is coming out!
Two winter hats and warm gloves are being worn this morning!
I turned on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
Back to normal again....
Car drivers just not bothering to stop...
Few BOINGs handed out for those that didn't.
Some on the otherside of the road, just don't car eless and keeps going, even when the big stick is coming out!
It didn't help with my bum bag slipping down my body and dropping on the pavement!
(Needs to tighten it up!)
Oh well, at least I survived the morning shift!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine goes on.
Now to break in the new bread maker.
Nice bit of bread mix to go on with...
Cheddar and Sun Dried Tomato.
Plus the soup maker goes on as well.
Once everything starting making everything.
It's coffee time!
Now to carry on writing yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
Soup is served up.
Chilli Chicken,Leek and Parsnip Soup
The bread was ready just before I left.
It smelt lovely!
Now for part 2.
The sun might be out, but that cold blast from the wind.
Still two hats and warm pair of gloves goes on.
Puts on my lights.
Going to have some fun with that low lying sun.
Met up with my 2 friends for a good Rabbit.
Time goes quick when you chat.
Said goodbye to them.
Let the fun start!
One white car was coming up the road.
Stuck my big stick out,
Guess what?
She put her foot down and went under it at 50 m.p.h!
She had a extra special BOING when she went under my stick!
Still had to slow down to turn left up the road!
One red car stopped over the road in the Keep Clear space, looked at me and my big stick, drove down a bit and got out of the car and came up to have a word.
He is going to say sorry for parking in the Keep Clear space.I was wrong, He wanted to know where the red school was?
I gave him directions, I could have acted dum, but I didn't.He turned round and went past without saying thank you.
Still had fun giving out BOINGs.
At least I survived!
Home time.
I covered up Sexy Beast as there will be a frost tomorrow.
Now for a much needed brew!
Marmite on some nice bread too↓
Sorted out tonight's tea.
Pizzas went into the oven.
I did my meat free Stir Fry.
Watched a new series on NETFLIX
Then looked into today's newspaper.

What Did The Chicken Do?

Pass me my teeth, and I'll bite you - George Burns
Welcome to my Thursday 🐦
Nice big hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on,
As well as the layers.
Then it's time to uncover Sexy Beast. 
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹before I leave.
I still put on my 2 hats with my big big gloves.
Once I put on my lights.
Let's go to work 🍭
Oh dear, here we go again!
Lots of Limbo drivers, my side and the otherside.
Done about 5 BOINGS this morning.
One silver Skoda driver, always waves to me in the morning. He actually stopped for me.
I got back to the pavement, two children were waiting to crossing, I raised my stick.
He thought sod this, put his toe on the peddle and outta there he went!
Good job the car behind didn't move so I could cross them over instead!
I survived!
I collected the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine went on.
I mopped the kitchen floor.
(I thought it won't take too long!)
While it dried.
I had my coffee.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Once I finished.
I checked the kitchen floor.
Still not dry :(
Oh well, I need to have my lunch.
In went my soup in the microwave,
&
another cup of coffee.
Nice and warm for the mouth!
Now for part two!
Change of leggings needed first.
(Too warm for the woolly ones)
The big big sunglasses had to go on.
Driving up the High Street.
A white van parked outside the Charity shop didn't help with the low lying sun. I was going only 5 m.p.h. Two women just walked in front of me,just past the van, I suddenly stopped.
They just looked and kept carrying on. A Range Rover tried and failed to push me out of the way as I carried on up the road!
Once I parked Sexy Beast.
Time to get the winter coat.....
Four times I tried to get the zip done up.
Fifth time, I did it!
The wind blew over my lollipop stick.
I had to undo the zip of my coat to pick it up off the floor!
Not going to be my afternoon!
I went to turn on my lights.
First I chattered with my friend and her mum.
Then my other friend arrived with his dog.
Quick rabbit, like you do.
Going to be fun with that low lying sun!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for part two of 🍭
Cars weren't stopping again.
I even stuck my lollipop right out in front of me, the small blue car drove straight under it, my stick nearly took out their car ariel, it was that low!
I just rolled my eyes, and carried on!
Home Time for me.
Back home.
Now for a much needed brew!
Then I put the tea in the oven to cook.
While watching the news, it was reporting on the death of Barry Cryer.
One of his jokes was read out on the news.
I couldn't stop laughing.

A man owns a parrot that can't stop swearing.
So he says to him, 'If you don't stop swearing, I'll put you in the fridge.'
The parrot keeps on swearing. So he puts it in the fridge.
Five minutes later, he takes the parrot out of the fridge, and says to it, 'Are you going to stop swearing?'
'Yes,' says the parrot. 'But what did that chicken do?'
Another one I found, why I also laughed at:
 
A woman walks past a petshop and sees a magnificent parrot in the window.
She rushes inside and says, 'How much for the parrot?'
'£5,' says the shopkeeper.
'Only £5? I've got to have it,' says the woman. 'Why's it so cheap?'
'Well, I must confess, it was brought up in a brothel,' said the shopkeeper. 'And, to put it politely, it has quite an extensive vocabulary.'
'Never mind,' says the woman. 'At that price, I'll take it.'
So she takes the parrot home, puts its cage in the living room and takes the cover off.
'New place - very nice,' says the parrot.
Then the woman's two daughters walk in.
'New place, new girls - very nice,' says the parrot.
Then the woman's husband walks in, and the parrot says, 'Oh hello, Keith!'
Hubby comes back, and has a nice wet sloppy πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
Yum!

See What One Drip Can Lead To!

Automatic simply means that you cannot repair it yourself 
- Jed Larson
Welcome to my Thursday Fun 🐧
Nice warm hug with brew.
Breakfast.
Thermals on.
7 years ago I started my old Lollipop job.
(I was made redundant in 2018)
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
On goes the winter hat, gloves, and winter coat.
I turns on my lights...
Let's get it on...
Being ignored by car drivers.
Just going under the stick as though I wasn't even there. Lots of BOING going on car roofs.
When I do stop the car drivers, it's either the their gums are banging or I have the look of death!
At least I finished in one piece!
I collect the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Instead of going on the Spin Bike, I am going to vaccum and mop this morning!
As I look under the kitchen cupboard, I see my bottle of Shake and Vac flowing in a box of water!
The pipe to the washing machine is leaking!
The red box of washing up bottles is all damp.
Soon on the phone to the company that fitted the washing machine.
They are sending someone else to fix the problem!
Now to use Henry to hoover, followed by mopping of the kitchen floor!
Felt better after that!
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog post all the way to lunch.
After lunch...
It's time for part 2.
I puts on the winter hat, gloves and coat.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with my two friends.
The low lying sun is going to cause problems.
I said goodbye to my friends and started my afternoon shift.
Drivers were going too fast, and driving into the low lying sun. One driver was moaning about how he couldn't see me due to the sun!
Two van drives just carried on going under the stick!
Great!
At least I finished in one piece.
My friend appeared and had a further chat until 4.10pm.
I said my goodbyes and drove home.
Nice pink clouds when I got home.
Time for a brew to warm up with.
Hubby came back with some fish and chips for everyone to share.
Now onto Netflix to watch a new series about Serial Killers.
We watched two episodes...
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Sleep tea time.
At last the Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈
