More Things To Go To!

 It may be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others - Anon
Welcome to my Thursday 📷💥😁
Nice hug to start the day with.
Breakfast with brew.
Then it's time for the Thermal vest!
Got my bits ready.

I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
It was nice to see the sunshine.
At least I don't have to wear those sexy lumo trousers this morning.
On goes two winter hats and gloves.
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.
*Photo time for the local newspaper celebrating International Women's Day*
It will be in tomorrow's newspaper.
Once it was took.
I nipped into the Co-op to spend £20 and get £4 off.
Lots of leeks and parsnips were on the reduced stand. They will be going in the soup for the next few days!
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
The coffee machine was put on.
Unpacked the shopping.
Unloaded and filled up the dish washer.
Now time for that coffee!

Then I go and join my two friends for a good rabbit about things!
Then it was time to say goodbye to them.
Round 2 time.
Then the rain started!
Good job I had the sexy lumo trousers on!
BOING, BOING and a bit more BOING.
The limbo drivers were out in force!
The cars were going too fast in the wet.
At least I survived to live to tell the tale!
I took off my sexy lumo trousers when I got back to Sexy Beast.
Now hometime.
I got talking to my neighbour's son for an hour in the rain.
When I got in, I had to finish yesterday's blog post.

Tears In My Eyes....

I was high on life, but eventually I built up a tolerance - Arj Barker
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Nice warm hug.
Then it was breakfast and brew time.
Thermal vest goes on.
I am hoping the rain keeps off this morning.
Now out in the fresh air...
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I left.
I just put my boots on in case it decided to rain.
I put on my lights.
Now let's have some fun 🍭
I think my coat is not bright enough,
As still the limbo drivers fail to see me or my big stick!
I gave out a few BOINGs for good measure.
One car had to brake hard on the otherside of the road!
The traffic was building up when I was nearly finished.
At least I finished in one piece.
I went round the long way to pick up the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine.
The rain started on and off all morning.
Coffee machine went on.
Unloaded the dishwasher.
The soup maker went on.
Now for some nice strong coffee.
How the time flies when I do some more housework!
A nice new batch of soup to enjoy!
It was raining before I left.
On goes those sexy lumo trousers.
Now for round 2.
I just got the last but one car parking space.
While I getting my boots on, a woman walked past me, gave me hard look and looked at her watch.
I was going tell her time if she wanted to know.
Boots, 2 winter hats and waterproof gloves on now.
Turns on my lights.
I haven't see my friend with his dog to talk to this week.
(Only to wave to in the morning)
Speaking of friends.
My two turned up, one had bought herself some daffodils from the near-by flower shop.
Then the other friend farted and walked off.
My other friend and me were in fits of laughter following the round of fart jokes we were talking about!
With tears in my eyes from laughing too much.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start again.
At least some of the car drivers stopped.
Had still a few limbo drivers.
BOING!!!!
I had to keep puttng my hood down as I was getting well warm, even though it was raining.
Finished in one piece.
Home Time.
Now to get on with tonight's tea.
Pan fried the pork chops,
then added stuffing on the top.
In the oven that went.
Vegetables went in the saucepan.
Roast potatoes, and roast parsnips went in the oven as well.
Put the oven on.
I used up the £5 Discount code, Hobbycraft sent out a few weeks ago.
More pens and a bit more craft stuff is now on order.
Hopefully my new breadmaker will be delivered tomorrow.
Amazon must be pissed off, as they keep sending me emails about a new breadmaker...
Going to book tickets for another trip to the NEC Craft event later on this month.
Not going VIP this time.....
Hubby came home and had a nice wet sloppy one 💋.
Dished up the tea.
I ate it too quick for a photo to be taken....

Better Chance Of Looking At My Pine Cone!

When all else fails, read the instructions - Anon
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start Friday with.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
It was raining outside.
The forecast from 7am -2pm was rain.
So on goes those sexy lumo trousers.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one when I leave.
I go and gets the cakes before I put on my Lollipop gear.
Then on goes two hats, big gloves and boots!
Looks like I have missed the rain!
Just my luck!
Wears the waterproofs and the sun comes out!
Once I have put on my lights, the fun starts.
Cars were stopping.
Except for the 4 cars, one after each other didn't stop. The 5th car driver did finally stop :)
The winds were getting up.
That is why I only poked my stick out a bit.
I didn't fancy flying off with my lollipop stick!
Everyone asked where I was yesterday morning.
I told them the stick was separated from top and the bottom.
I finished in one piece.
I go round and to pick up newspaper.
When the Land Rover came up behind me.
Talk about kissing the arse!
Just arrived home,
And it starts to rain!
Coffee machine goes on.
Gets ready for my friend to arrive.
My friend arrives and time to yak, coffee and cake.
Later on I wave her goodbye.
No post :(
Soup time.
It was still raining before I left.
On goes those lumo sexy trousers.
Now to leave.
One Land Rover failed to stop at the road traffic island, nearing hitting me as I was going around it.The  licence plate had 50 FT in it.
50 FT of dum dum I say...
I tried to tie my hat down with a scarf as it was quite windy. On goes the boots and gloves again.
The doughnuts are ready for my friends.
I turned on my lights.
Now waited for my friends to arrive.
The sun keeps appearing.
My friends arrive for rabbit and doughnuts.
The wind is really getting up strong.
I wish my friends a good weekend.
Now for me to start.
Talk about being blown about!
Dum Dum in his Land Rover went past me twice, having a good look at me being blown about!
I gave up on the scarf holding my hat down, as it kept flying off!
I couldn't do the BOING as my lollipop stick would have blown away! 
I finished in one piece.
I will have to consult my pine cone for further weather predictions, as today it was forecasted rain from the forecast on my phone and no rain appeared only sun!
Back home.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Puts the tea in the oven.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one when he came home.
The rain is back, he looked like a drowned rat,when he came in.
Tea is served.
Yum.
