One car stalled, put my stick out, the engine came back to life, and drove straight under my stick!
BOING! my big stick went.
It wasn't as bad as yesterday....
At least the traffic lights were letting a few cars through. 
Finished in one piece.
Tired to park on my half of the drive.
 The two black bins were in the middle of the drive and had a council lorries either side of the bins.
I had to park opposite to move the black bins out of the way.
The bed bases were still waiting to be collected.
The Council workers were still clearing out next door's house. 
I did offer them a drink and they refused.
In the house I went to put on my coffee machine.
Washing machine went on.
I looked out of the front door and saw the bed bases still there.
I saw someone driving past, looked at the bed bases, then they looked up and saw me staring at them as they drove past. hehehe.
Light lunch time.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my winter hat, winter coat and winter gloves. I turn on my lights. I collect my big stick.
I go and wait in the square for my friends.
Both friends turn up for a little rabbit.
The low-lying sun was a bit of problem again.
At least the traffic lights are slowing down the traffic. Last minute braking on the otherside not helping..
A few BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
