Nearly Got Me!

The English really aren't interested in talking to you unless you've been to school or to bed with them - Lady Nancy Keith
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
It's really cold outside....
More layers to add...
We got up early to do the Heardles:

Breakfast and Brew.
Thermal vest goes on as well as lots of layers.
Just looked outside....
Good job I covered up Sexy Beast.
A bit nippy out here!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
Now to go the long way round to work.
At least the sun is coming up!
Big coat, two hats, and big winter gloves go on.
I gets today's newspaper.
Swaps it for the big stick.
Now to go and turn on my lights.
I turn on my lights.
Now let's go to work 🍭
Let the fun start!
It was tank time.
Some just scraped a bit of ice of their windscreen!
Then it gets better.
First a blue attempted to mount the pavement to go around me, then realised it was bin day and 3 bins covering the pavement.
Back on the road you go love!
Next bit of fun I had was:
I stopped a old woman in her car to cross a parent over, when I got back on the pavement, she drove up a bit and started having a go at me for something, jabbing her finger down and gums going.....
Pity she didn't wind the window down, I could hear about the problem I had caused!
I said nothing and carried on waiting for the next person to cross over!
Gave out three Boings as well.
Finished in one piece.
Now onto Argos to pick up something I bought yesterday.

Valentine Card bought 💓
Back home I go.

Coffee time.
Once the dishwasher had finished and cooled down. 
Unloaded and put back on.
Wrote yesterday's blog post.
Liquid lunch time.
Now to leave to do the afternoon shift.
I tried to park in the car park. There was no room :(
Parked around the corner.
Winter coat, two hats and gloves goes on.
Goes and puts on my lights.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
One friend arrives, we go and look for more bargains in the Bakery Sale.
Back outside as three more friends arrived for a little rabbit!
The low lying sun is back again.
I said goodbye to all my friends.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
People were actually stopping my side of the road. No Boings were actually handed out for once!
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Cup of brew is needed.
Emptied dishwasher again.
Cleaned out my coffee machine.
Now to chill....
Nice easy tea.
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Writing, Spinning, & Need Of A Strong Coffee!

Everything takes longer than it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice warm hug to start Monday with!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Sexy Beast looks like a need a scrape.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one before I leave.
The sun might be coming up.
It's still freezing!
On goes 2 winter hats and the big big gloves.
I put on my lights.
Now to see how many tanks I can spot this morning...
Only saw two, is better than what I normally see...
Nice the normal white car on the otherside doesn't stop for me, she might be running out of luck soon!
Still had to do a few more BOINGs!
At least I finished in one piece!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee maker.
Chops some veggies and put on the soup maker.
Coffee time.
While I had some spare time.
Time to reply to the American Prison Pen Pal who sent me 2 letters last week.
I wrote him 6 pages.
That should keep him happy :)
The soup was ready to dish up.
I had a Labour leaflet pushed through the door.
Didn't knock the door.
Only hear the Councillors when they want to be re-electioned! 
Dished up my soup.
Chicken,Leak,and Parsnip.
My new arier arrived.
I got in touch with Dunelm for my refund.
It is now been SIX  weeks since I put the order in. Waiting 3 weeks, and then cancelled it.
Now the excuses pile up:
1: The Manager at my local store hasn't received my order to give me a refund.
2: The IT department are working on it to find my order.
3: Today's excuse, is the only member of their IT team is now on ANNUAL LEAVE and I have to wait for them to come back!
I got sick of this utter crap and wrote a email to their CEO. If I don't hear nothing from him, I will go further up the food chain! 
Now off to do my afternoon shift.
Next door's carers had to move their car again.
On goes one winter hat and lightweight gloves.
I got talking to my friend who has had his hand op the other week. He had come back from Stratford upon Avon on the bus and dropped his earing aid. He was just on the way to the bus stop when I got chatting.
I told his wife, "Since I have been wearing a facemask, I can't wear earrings, as they don't stop long in my ear lobes!"
Puts on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends.
The sun kept appearing from behind the clouds.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to have some fun 🍭
Oh dear, had 3 straight cars go under my stick.
Some cars on the underside had to stop very quick!
At least I finished in one piece!
Now to get changed into the pink lyrca!
I watched the last of The Irishman while doing my spinning.
Then onto the abs machine...
(I'm going to hurt tomorrow!)
Cools down.
Now to make the Meat Free Stir Fry.
Out comes the Breadmaker.
I can't find my lovely Breadmaking book.
So from memory in it all goes...
On for 4 hours!
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons, ) was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums around the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He died on this day in 1985 aged 54. 
"Reach Out I'll Be There' by The Four Tops, released by Tamla Motown in 1966.
USA No.1 on this day in 1976: 
Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
'Wuthering Heights' by Kate Bush, released by EMI in 1978.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
The bread came out alright!
Found my good Bread Maker book as well.
Hubby's team came back from 2-0 down to 2-2.
Even though Hubby lost his match on the pink.
I climbed into that warm bed...and fell off to sleep like a log!
