Boxing Day
Welcome to our Boxing Day 🎁
We actually had a lie-in \o/
Time for some Breakfast and Brew.
Then we got dressed.

I had some housework to get on with.
Hubby went out for a walk and got the newspaper on the way back.
Coffee time when he got back!
Got piles of washing to do.
Looking like a Chinese Laundry!
Washing machine went on again.
The Christmas Decorations are coming down tomorrow as had a enough!
Turkey roll time!
I will make a soup with the rest of the Turkey tomorrow.
Then it was back to tidying up the house.
As Friday, we are having some things come back from my late Father-in-law's house and we got to find room for it!
After Friday, it's just my pictures and ornaments got to come back! 
For tea we are having some nice cheese on crackers.

I put on my lights,
Now for the fun to start!
Some car drivers don't realise you have to stop when I put my big stick out.....
In a little world of their own, and they go under it!
They have a BOING for their trouble.
A teenager tried to cross on her own over the busy road further down from me.
She gave up and crossed over with me in the end.
Towards the end, I had to shout to one parent pushing a pram, that a car wouldn't stop.It didn stop when my big stick appeared.
It tried to go, but another parent crossed over, and my big stick was in the way.
