Rubbing Of The Lamp!!

In a civil war, a general must know exactly when to move over to the other side - Henry Reed
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew
The screw fell out of my watchstrap again. The watch has had the second watchstrap and the screws don't hold them very well.
Couldn't find the screw.
The watch Hubby bought me for my Birthday goes on instead!
It might look expensive,
It only cost under £20! 
Hubby is being dropped down Studley to get the bus to Evesham.
We got out of the house early.
The temperatures has really gone down to 2c.
Had to scrape the windscreen.
Off we go.
Drops him off at the bus stop.
Gets to work.
On goes the winter hat and winter coat.
Turns on my lights.
The newspapers are back in the Corner shop.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Hubby walked up the road to see me.
The bus only goes to Alcester not to Evesham.
I told him to go and have breakfast at the Coffee shop opposite me and I will drop  him at work after I finish my shift. 
Off to work I go...
Everyone was glad I am back.
One parent was going to get touch with me via private message on FB to find out when I was coming back.
Had to give out one BOING as one car went straight under my stick!
Some of the younger children were dressed as Disney characters.
One was a Mermaid.
One was dressed as a Genie.
I asked if I could rub the lamp to make a wish of:
"Can I sing so it won't rain?"
The answer was no!
We all laughed!
While I was in the road, one car was slowly rolling towards me!
Hubby comes out after having a full breakfast.
He goes for a walk to walk it off.
I finish in one piece.
Pop into the Council to ask for a Agenda for tomorrow as there is full council meeting tomorrow.
Now to drop hubby off at work.
On the way back,
I decided to visit a lovely charity shop...
The woman working in there was so surprised to see me being so happy.
It was like a Treasure trove in there.
Got some bits.
Now go home via Henley in Arden....
 Coffee time.
Cut four pieces of cake for my friends.
Liquid lunch time.
Had a chat with hubby on his lunch break.
Had more Christmas earrings↓
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
On the way to put on my lights.
There is a new Pillar Box topper.
I turn on my lights.
Then I help carry a bag of books of my friends down to the Charity shop.
They were glad to see and vice versa.
Got some nice bargains.
Goes and turns on my lights.
Swaps my bargains for my big stick.
Then goes and has a rabbit in the square with lots of friends.
 I gave out cake to all my friends.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to start my shift.
One van's windscreen nearly went tap and crack.
He just stopped there and  showed me his hands as if I wasn't allowed to stop him!
The Genie came back.
I asked "Can I rub your lamp and can I ask for a wish, to sing and it won't rain?"
One parent behind her, "Please say no!"
We all laughed.
Finished in one piece.
Now home.
Bargains I got.
I got the big cake tin for the upcoming Christmas Cake :)
Cup of brew time.
Hubby had to get the bus back.
The bus driver must have been running late as it was putting the foot down!
When hubby came back, he had a sloppy wet one 💋
Nice salad with Quiche for tea.
I had a look in today's newspaper.
We found new series of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare USA on You Tube.
We watched two episodes.
Caught up on the news and newspaper review.
Sleep Tea time.
Now for snuggles under the duvet cover!

This Why I Don't Like Mondays!

Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional 
- Bob Monkhouse
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Breakfast and Brew
Even had to wear a jacket as it was quite chilly.
Now to leave the house.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leaves.
Now the fun to get to work.
A van had broken down opposite the petrol station, that was causing delays. Gets to the island, tries to turn left,
Back past the broken down van, now to go to the busy way to work.
(The road is closed as a water pipe as burst and flooded the whole road) 
Puts on my summer coat and summer hat.
Big big sunglasses.
They didn't have no newspapers in the corner shop. Walked further down the road to turn on my lights.
Goes back to Sexy Beast to pick up my big stick. 
Goes and turns on my lights.
Now let's go to work....
One parent in a black SUV thinks it funny to brake the last minute, twice!
Some parents I was trying to cross over, didn't find it funny! 
I had to give out two BOINGs as the cars on the other side wasn't stopping!
At least the sun was out!
Finished in one piece!
Off to Morrisons to get the newspaper.
Then to visit a Solictor's to sign and get my Statutory Declaration witnessed.
The Solictor asked "where I got the form from?"
"I printed off the internet,"I replied.
"The form is not legal......!" He said.
I will have to come back with the legal form.
Back home I went.
I need a strong coffee after that!
I tried to find the legal form.
I wrote yesterday's blog instead up to lunch.
No liquid lunch today.
I spoke to hubby on his dinner break.
I grabbed my rain mac as it wasn't looking too good for the weather.
Just get into the road where my spot is, and traffic lights!
We are going to have some fun later!
I just get the last space in the car park!
Gets my summer coat and summer hat.
Walks up to the first set of lights with one of my friends.
I ask the Open Reach worker is he is going to gone by the time I start...
He grumbles,"We should be out of your way by then."
I go off down to the Charity Shop. 
I buy my book back, to be one of the prizes of the Bake Off next Friday.
I gets something else which will look nice.
Steam Engine goes past.
Says goodbye to the staff in the Charity Shop.
Turns on my lights and walks back to Sexy Beast.
It starts to rain down.
I put on my winter coat.
Drops the book into the Council Office. 
We wait for the rain to stop to walk over to the square for a little rabbit.
The van was still blocking the middle of the road where I use to cross people over.
I say goodbye to my friends.
The traffic lights are still there.
I had to stop over the otherside of the road.
(Where I stay in the mornings)
Once the traffic lights were removed over the otherside of the road, and he parked to remove the traffic lights on my side, I crossed over the road to carry on. There was lots of traffic due to the road with the burst pipe being closed.
I was glad to finish in one piece!
As I was going home, the traffic was building up coming into the village.
Back home.
I put one lampshade up.
and the other one↓
Cup of brew is needed.
I had a early tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
I went outside to put the recycling out.
A large black thorn went through my croc , sock and ended up in the bottom of big toe!
Got it out finally!
In need of some light relief!
The lampshades are looking good!
My youngest son gets my hat box down with the hat I am wearing for my friend's funeral tomorrow.
Sleep Tea time.
*It just happens to be Russ Abbot's 76th Birthday.
Nice little Birthday Tribute to great man at the end of the blog post.*
That lavender shower worked....
Out like a light....!
