Watch Out For That!

The English winter - ending in July, to recommence in August - Lord Byron
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice hug to start Friday off with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
I add a bread mix to the breadmaker before I leave.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one.
Time for those big big sunglasses to come out.
Still had the winter hats and gloves on.
The three way traffic lights were working now.
I turned on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
It was quiet for a Friday.
&
Cars were stopping!!!
Then the fun started...
First two Police Officers paid a visit to one of houses just up from me.
I crossed them over when they had finished.
One houseowner who I talk to, said to me:
"I am expecting a delivery from IKEA between 8.20 9.20."
I replied,"A white van, with two men eyeballing me has come down this road twice, the same van is just coming out of the near-by road." 
He looked up and said,"Thanks!"
The van stopped out outside his house.
Three cars overtook the van.
The fourth car, which was a black BMW overtook the van.
She forgot there was a Pedestrian Refuge Island.
She had to swerve to avoid it at the last minute.
Good job I wasn't in the middle of the road at the time!
The van was soon gone, and the traffic started to build up again.
I finished in one piece!
I got the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Empties the dishwasher and loads it back up.
My friend pops in for a coffee and chat.
She is going to see Paul Carrick in concert in Birmingham tonight.
Save getting the late train back home,
Book a hotel and come back in the morning.
I wished her a good luck for the night out tonight.
I started filling in the answers for each section of the crystal course I have been doing.
1 & 2 done.
3 not there.
Started on section 4 questions up to lunchtime.
Finished off that lovely hot soup...
The bread turned out lovely!
Plus my bulk order of sleep tea arrive too :)
I looked outside.
Rain.
Time for those sexy lumo trousers to come out again. 
Put boots on, winter hats and waterproof gloves.
Turns on the lights.
Only had one friend to rabbit with as the other friend was getting the overtime in.
I wished him a good weekend.
Now to start in the rain.
Still a bit of traffic.
Parents wished me a happy weekend.
A few BOINGs were given out as some cars refused to stop .
At least I finished in one piece.
Home time.
I puts the fish and chips in the oven.
Tumble Drier goes on.
Now to get on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one.
Tea is done.
Too quick for a photo!
Finished off writing yesterday's blog post.
Then to look in today's newspaper.
