Oh dear,

BOING went my stick!
One woman driver came past me, messing with her hair with both hands,
Who was driving the car????
At lot of cars are missing their front license plates!
Too tight to put it back on.
The flower lorry that normally comes on a Thursday, came today with a extra trailer...

As well as the soup maker.
All ready for my friend to come around for coffee, chat and cake.

Hubby had a big wet one when he returned from work.
Now to dish up the tea.
We caught up with this week's Dragon's Den.
Hubby and son went out to do some food shopping.
I meanwhile loaded up the dishwasher.
Then to look into today's newspaper.

Nice Bit Of Luck!

Ducking for apples. Change one letter and it's the story of my life - Dorothy Parker.
Welcome to my Thursday 🍰☕
Nice warm hug to start the day off with :)
Brew with breakfast.
Time to add the thermal vest.
I had covered up Sexy Beast last night. 
The temperatures didn't go down to freezing.
Two winter hats and big big gloves go on.
I put on my lights.
Now for fun time 🍭
One woman in a black fiat 500 goes under my stick, and then takes off both hands off her steering wheel, and shows me her palms!!!!!
Who is steering her car???
Still have the limbo dancers chancing their luck under my big stick!
Especially them on the other side of the road!
I survived!
I picks up newspaper on the way home.
Quick coffee.
I told my youngest son to keep an ear out for the DPD delivery man.
Off I go to enjoy a coffee morning with friends.
Picks up one friend.
Now to meet another one there.
I bring a empty Hero's tub to put the cake in, to take home for the 3 men of the family.
I have a slice of cake, and coffee.
I bought my own blue milk with me.
I am joined with my two friends I have a chat with in the afternoon 👄💬 
I have a go on the raffle.
One friend said, "I will laugh if you win first prize!"
We get our photo took to go in the local newspaper next week.....
(I'm sure some people will use my photo as a dart board!)
I said "Goodbye" to everyone.
I said see ya later to my friend.
I dropped the other friend home.
Back home I go.
I finished the soup off I made yesterday.
The DPD driver couldn't or wouldn't find my house.
It has to be delivered elsewhere tomorrow again!
I went upstairs before I was due to leave.
I came back down and had a miscall.
I phoned them back, and found out:
 I had won First prize in the raffle :)
I will pick it up when I go down in a minute.
Round 2 time.
Goes and picks up the First Prize from the Library. I have a chat with everyone in there.
Leaves it in Sexy Beast.
My friend parks next to me.
I asked if she had a phone call, she said no.
I ask her to look on the front seat.
She laughed, and said, "You didn't win first prize?"
We then walk up to turn on my lights.
Back to our normal spot and was joined by our other friend for a rabbit....
We say goodbye to each other.
Now to let the fun start 🍭
Oh dear, here we go with the Limbo dancers.
One went straight under my stick, so low, I could have took off his car ariel!
The cars are the otherside ain't stopping either!
Then a car goes past , and the passenger (grandson) throws out half eaten apple out of his window!
That could have hit me!
Glad I finished in one piece!
I starts writing one of two blog posts.
Inbetween doing that, on goes the tea as well.
Hubby comes home and a big wet one 💋
Tea is served up...
There were four empty plates :)
Quick look in the newspaper.

Look No Hands!

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
 Welcome to my Tuesday 😱
Nice warm hug with brew.
It's going to be nice day for sunshine!
I give hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I leave.
The big big sunglasses had to come out.
On goes the summer coat
(With a jacket underneath)
Now for the fun to start...🎈
It goes alright until....
I'm standing on the pavement, when a car is coming towards me, and the car starts to veer towards me.....
The woman car driver was messing with her hair, and no hands are on the steering wheel!
She then suddenly veered the car back....
I just shook my head.
Most cars try to get me in the road,
Not on the pavement!
The white Telsa didn't stop again.
Nearly had a few near taps and cracks this morning! 
I'm glad I finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Now for that important coffee..
I start writing Sunday's blog post,
When DPD's customer service department phones me about the misdelivered parcel.
"I will get the driver to get it and redeliver it."
Was what they said......
We shall see....
My friend pops in for chat with coffee.
I said goodbye to my friend later on.
(I will see my friend later on in the week for more chat and coffee....)
Then it's time for afternoon shift.
As I get into Sexy Beast, I notice a DPD van goes past. I rush to end of my drive, and it's vanished into one of factory units.
Gets back into Sexy Beast.
I changes to another CD to listen to.
The Summer coat gets put on.
Puts my lights on.
Chats with the woman who has given me some plants and vice versa.
My friend came with dog.
I gives my friend some bread pudding
(My neighbour gets my younger son some on a Monday, and he got too much for just himself to eat,so I gave my friend some)
We sits and has a chat in the sunshine.
Once it was time for me to start.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for the fun to start 🍭
Some cars had to stop as I was in there way.
Some cars seem it quite funny not having to stop.
A few near tap and cracks again.
At least I finished in one piece!
Now back home.
No parcel from DPD was there waiting for me.
I just about have had enough of this!
I asked the Seller for a refund.
The email I got was:
"DPD works late in the evening, you might get your parcel!"
Fine I can wait until 9pm!
I get on with making a Beef Casserole.
Out come the cast iron Casserole Dish.
Once I put that in the oven.
I watered all the plants.
Then to carry on writing yesterday's blog post.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋.
Dished up the food.
(Ate it too quick for a picture, the dumplings were nice!)
Quick look into today's newspaper.

Another nice full moon...
We watched the new series of "Bake Off".
While watching it, I had my book to finish.
 As normal, no DPD redelivering of my parcel.
Got in touch with Seller.
"Give me a refund please!"
Sleep tea time.
Finding out if I got permission to board the loft, and expecting another parcel to be delivered by DPD tomorrow
What could go wrong?????🐫
