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.
