Mixing Tears With Rain!

Please Leave Heather For All To Enjoy - Sign in Scottish Highlands
Welcome to my Wet Tuesday ☂
Breakfast and Brew.
It forecasted rain, but there was so nothing.
So I left off the sexy lumo trousers!
I took my rain mac, just in case.
Out I go...
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋.
Then off to work.
On the way to work, the rain came down!
Gets to work.
I put on my winter coat, summer coat, and waterproof shoes. I walked down to turn on the lights, and walked back up the road to turn on the lights...
I walked back to Sexy Beast, and phoned up hubby to bring my sexy lumo trousers for me on the way to work.
When hubby arrived, he had picked up the wrong size....
I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋 for trying.
Now to get wet!
One red mini on the otherside didn't stop, so he had a BOING!
The rain eased off, but still had wet trousers.
Finished in one piece.
While it was raining, I went down to the alleyway which gets flooded, and all the school kids get wet feet walking to school.
I nipped into the Co-op for the newspaper.
Back home.
I sent a email to the County Councillor about the flooding.Let's see the excuse shall we?
Coffee time.
Just about finished the Pigs in Mud cake.
Just need the cocktail umbrellas...
Now for some lunch.
I spoke to hubby on his dinnerbreak.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
I was not risking getting wet again.
On goes the winter coat and summer hat.
Turned on one set of lights and then down to the Charity shop for a yak.
Coming out and turning on my other lights, I didn't like those dark clouds.
I get my big stick out of
Sexy Beast and goes into the square for a rabbit.
Once it was time to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Those clouds were turning more darker.
As I started, my Supervisor appeared with no rain coat.
Then it started to rain very heavily.
I asked him, "As anyone complained about me?"
I told him about what happened last Friday.
He told me not to shout at anyone if they decide to run out into the road.It is Parental Responsibility to look after the kids before I cross them over!
That didn't sit well with me at all. Might have to ask for a second option on that.
Then he asked me how I was feeling after the funeral of my friend.
I burst into a flood of tears.
"Compose yourself for a minute," I was told. 
Talk about Crying in the Rain!
Once I had finished, he left, and I went back to Sexy Beast to get out of my wet coat. 
Home time.
At least the sun came out.
Cup of brew needed.
I got the cake tins, ready for the cake.
I got my Council stuff ready for the meeting later.
I had a light tea, and hubby came back from work. He had a sloppy wet one 💋.
Now for me to leave once more.
On the way, nearly got hit by a white BMW who came out of a side road. He didn't like sticking to speed limit and overtook the next he had.However he couldn't get any further as he was stuck behind a car doing 20 m.p.h.
Gets to the Council meeting in one piece.
Before the start of the meeting, we have a tribute from the Chairman to my late friend.
I burst into a flood of tears. The fellow Councillors looking at me.
We had a good meeting.
The moon was out when I left.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea Time.
After an exhausting day,
I was glad to get into a warm bed!

Turning Into A Sad Day

Moral code? I have enough trouble with the Highway Code - 
Mark Turner
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Another sunny Hump day↓
Breakfast and Brew
Adding more Stop signs↓
Now out of the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to work I go.
The mini was still parked there!
(Free secure parking)
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
I goes and puts on one set of lights.
I come and pick up my big stick.
I go and turn on my other lights.
Off to my spot I go.
I had to give out two Boings.
I was told my friend of over 30 years, and a fellow Councillor had died this morning.
Just before I finished, a car driver left his car at the parish hall and came over to tell me, he could not see crossing over the kids when he was driving up the road. I looked at him in disbelief. I am dressed in lumo with a big stop sign and he can't see me?
Time for a visit to Spec-Savers!
Off to Morrisons.
I normally use the self-service, but this time I will use a cashier instead. Oh dear.
The woman in front had a full trolley of shopping.
She went over the £100 limit for chip and pin.
Out comes £23 of goods out of her trolley.
She pays, then pays for the extra £23 of goods.
I pay for my goods.
I pick up my newspaper, the Desk where I was queueing was getting longer as the Lotto machine had run out paper to print  the lotto tickets and no one knew where the rolls were kept!
I went over to the self-service tills.
I scanned my voucher for the newspaper and the red light went off!
It was scanned and I was free to leave.
On the way out, I took my bag out of the trolley, a woman took the trolley of me, and before I realised, I had left the receipt in the trolley!
Back to Sexy Beast, to write out the card for my friend's family.
I wrote the card and will drop it off later.
Back home.
Puts the washing machine on.
Puts the grey bin out.
Coffee time.
While keeping the blog updated, I get upset about losing my good friend.
My late friend's daughter phoned me to tell her mum had passed away.I passed my regards on to her and her dad.
I didn't fancy a liquid lunch instead a nice salad instead.
I chatted to hubby.
We got another wedding anniversary card.
When I was on the way out, I found a baby Squirrel.
I left it some nuts.
I needed up some uplifting songs....
I dropped in the card.
I gets to work.
On goes the Summer hat and Summer coat.
Big big sunglasses
The Council had lowered the flag.
I turned on my lights and went back to Sexy Beast for my water bottle.
My friends appeared and were worried about me.
By then I burst into a flood of tears and told the reason why.
Lots of hugs were given out :)
I felt a lot better.
We walked down to the Charity Shop as my friend had some things to hand in.
I bought a rainbow bath bomb.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick.
Then we wait under the tree.
Some of the parents were very understanding as I was still upset. 
We walk over to the square and stand in the shade. 
When it was time to start, I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start.
Great bus went past.
Cars were leaving a bit late to stop.
 Finished in one piece.
I was chatting to the two clerks about our late friend.
(I got upset again)
Who just appeared?
My late friend's son!
We had a hug and a good yak until ten to 5pm!
He felt better and I did.
Off home I went.
I put the tea in the oven.
Jumped into the shower.
Felt better.
Hubby came home and I gave him a sloppy wet one 💋
Quick tea.
Grabbed my Council things...
Hubby is going over to see his friend who lost his day yesterday morning.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to another Council meeting I go.
I thought it was going to be short meeting.
I watched the sunset through the window.
Meeting finished.
Back home.
My lights look nice :)
Hubby hadn't come back yet.
Looks into today's newspaper.
Sleep Tea time.
I felt emotionally drained.
I couldn't keep my eyes open any more.
Hubby appeared just as I was going to sleep......
