Found You!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception - Groucho Marx
Welcome abroad my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
The sun was already up!
We did all the Heardles.
Heardle 60s was:
 Son's Heardle answers↓
Now time for breakfast and brew.
Got ready to leave,
Opened the front door and the draught excluder fell and banged me on the head....
(It's not going to be a good day I fear!)
Puts on those big big sunglasses...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Got stuck in traffic lights on the way.
Goes and gets my newspapers.
To look at the traffic lights.
I get my Summer Coat.
I go and turn on my lights.
I am going to have some fun this morning.
I turn on my lights.
Now for the fun to start on a Monday! 
Let's hope they keep it clear!
The traffic lights wasn't hindering the car drivers for not stopping for me!
One blue BMW done the limbo under my big stick, but couldn't carry on any further as the traffic lights were red!
On the other side, 3 cars, one and the other just ignored my big stick and kept going.
Few more BOINGS  given out!
Suddenly a blue 20 plate Skoda went past...
Short blonde hair, big big sunglasses...
The same car that tried to run me over in November. It didn't help that the lights turned RED and can the last three letters of the licence plate!
*VU20 ---* 
Finished in one piece.
On the way home, a lorry pulled out of a side road, and nearly took me out.Two large blasts of  horn was needed!
Finally got home.
Coffee machine was put on.
I put my Summer Coat on a short wash.
Hung it out on the line to dry.
Did some more washing.
Coffee time.
Tried to reach a box on top of the shelf in the Dining Room.
Will have to get one of the tall sons to reach it.
As the box contains the cake tin, I am using for the LGBT+ Bake Off in August.
I finished in 2rd place last time.
I tried to put the throw on the our bed, and the link broke in my watch strap!
I then nearly cut off a finger by moving a Craft knife I used to cut adhesive tile covers with!
Anything else wants to go wrong why I am breathing!
I go outside to water the plants.
I need some fresh air after that!
Light lunch time.
Now back out for part two.
The Summer coat had dried nearly. 
New set of traffic lights on the way!
On goes the Summer Coat.
Puts on my lights.
Now to get a ice cold lolly!
The hole has been filled in \o/
Gets my ice lolly, collects my big stick from Sexy Beast. 
Into the park, in the shade I go!
Both friends arrive...
Now time for a little bit of..
Time for work to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Car drivers stopping in the Keep Clear space, was making it abit hard for me to cross the kids over. 
Lots of BOING, and BOING were given out due to cars not stopping.
Glad to finish in one piece!
Back home.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came back, and had a sloppy wet one 💋.

Looked in the newspaper.

Followed by Sleep Tea in bed.
More sunny weather tomorrow 👙

More Hump Day Fun!

 What fresh hell is this? - Dorothy Parker, answering the phone.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
Hubby came to bed at midnight last night.
I had a bad night's sleep.
Plenty of ...↓
Gets up at 6am and has cold shower.
Heardle time!
Heardle 60s was:
Then it was time for brew and breakfast.
Then out of the door.
Big Big sunglasses time.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one.
I got the newspaper.
Put on the summer coat.
I turned on my lights.
Back to it 🍭
It was getting well busy.
9 cars failed to stop on the otherside of the road.
The 10th car had to do a emergency stop!
Chats with the parents.
Then it starts to rain...
(Even though my pine cone says sunshine)
A brief shower!
See the blue Skoda from last November that tried to run me over!
Funny her license plate doesn't match the car details on the DVLA website!
Finishes in one piece.
Now off to be B3.
Meets friend for coffee and nibbles.
The slices of cake looked nice.
But I'm saving myself for the lovely homemade cake at the coffee morning tomorrow :)
I said goodbye to my friend and off home I went.
Filled up Sexy Beast....
Fuel is getting bloody expensive...
Horse and cart next!
At least the horse poop be good for the garden!
Very light lunch indeed.
Back out for part two.
That black cloud doesn't look too good↓
Traffic lights have been up opposite where I put on my lights.
I turn on my lights and get back to Sexy Beast.
Then the heavens open and it rains really heavy!
One of my friends comes and we wait for the rain to finish.
I change coats into my winter one.
We go and wait in the square for our other friend.
My friend comes, and it's time for a little rabbit..
We were watching the traffic backing up all the way to my spot....
I said goodbye to my friends.
Part two.
One car got tired of waiting for me to cross the kids over the road.
And tooted me to hurry up!
Cars were putting their toe down and not stopping the other side.
It was getting that bad for traffic.
Both sides were not moving but the traffic lights kept changing!
I was glad to finish in one piece!
I drove half way home and didn't release my boot lid was still up.......
I was glad to get home!
Has a ice lolly to call down with.
Puts pie in the oven.
Writes some blog posts.
Hubby comes home for a nice sloppy wet one!
Tea is served.
