Handle Me With Lots Of Care.....

Back on the wobbly work wheel,
I did Job 1.
Got back home, felt crap, back to bed.
This migraine was taking a long to disappear.
Couldn't do Job 2.
Back to bed...
I just had a numb headache.
Drinking lots of Lemsip.
Lets hope I feel better tomorrow...
 As Henry the hoover is wimping in the corner of the Dining Room...(He wants to come out and play!)

One Wheel On My Trolley.....

It has come round really quick!
After winning free tickets for the BBC Good Food Show,
It was time to use them!
Out of bed at 7am.
Sandwiches made, Flask made up, cold drinks packed.
Caught 2 trains to get to the Birmingham NEC.
Free food, yum yum yum, and free goody bags.
Taking my shopping trolley down the stairs to catch the train home.
Then one wheel broke off!!!!!
(My son tried to reattach it, no luck on it staying on!)
Hubby and son then had to carry it everywhere!
I started to sing:
"One wheel on my trolley, and I'm just rolling along......"

Something For Nothing (Almost!)

Woo hoo the weekend arrived by gusts of wind we had last night!
Everything was nailed down, so it wasn't blown away.
All the males in the household had haircuts this morning.
Done the food shopping.
The Dr Who quiz was cancelled at the Library :(
Still enjoyed a takeaway M&S mocha and a read of a free newspaper.
We popped into Sainsbury's and picked up a early Christmas present...
What was even better, I had £15 of nectar points to spend...
So I got Chinese takeaway and a good film for nothing ;)

Make It So...

Woo hoo the weekend is nearly here.
I didn't get round to doing no baking whatsoever!
More talking than anything.
Finally got the Christmas presents bought.
Didn't even have to leave the house either!
I feel sorry for Santa, he is going to have a bad back
after delivering the presents!
Don't worry, I will leave a stiff drink and a homemade mince pie for him on Xmas Eve.
Better start on making the Xmas cards, or they might turn out to Happy 2016 Cards instead!

Wearing The Special Hat!

Welcome to Hump of the Week!
I decided to dig out the Santa hat for Job 2.
I know it's only November 25th, but I have 6 days left there.
I like making dinner times fun!
4 weeks and counting to the Big Day!
I haven't even made a card, wrapped a present, baked the Xmas cake or made the Chocolate log...yet!
I soon will have more time on my hands,
than I know what to do with in December!

Of Course I'm A Lady!

Welcome to 3 jobs Tuesday.
Counting down to losing Job 2
8 days and counting....
It was not as cold as it was yesterday,
But still needed the thermal.....vest!
One of my toys are brought out to play with tonight...
My hairdryer....my hair now getting nice and long...
When I had hair this long( a good 20 years ago)
One former co-worker said about me with long hair
"I either look like a "lady" or a very badly dressed transvestite."

Time For The Thermal Knickers!!

It's freezing cold Monday time.
I reached for the thermal knickers.
As Mr Frost visited last night.
I had loads of clothing on, 
Had to scrape,scrape and more scrape the car windows.
I added more layers for Job 2.
I had a elderly man comment on how warm I looked at Job 1.
I did say to him, "It would surprise him what I was wearing under my coat!"
He replied to that,"Bet it takes a long time to get undressed for bed?".
"With the warm hands of my husband, very quick actually!".
With that comment, I winked at him ;)

Henry To The Rescue!!

Welcome to a very cold Sunday.
We spent today, getting the house ready for Winter.
Henry the Hoover came out,
With a dash of Shake 'n' Vac.
Drunk fine filter coffee.
The Winter curtain were ready to put up.
So while I took down the summer curtains,
I knocked the shelf containing the expensive filter coffee!
Good job Henry was already out to play..

Charging The Mouth Battery....

Woo hoo it's Friday....
The weekend is nearly here....;P
I visited some good friends in Studley.
I brought some mince pies direct from my kitchen.
However, not homemade but from Mr Kipling!
I had a good chinwag for 2 hours.
Now for another chinwag with more good friends.
Caught up on some gossip.
Wished them a Happy Xmas and Merry New Year.
Now back home to charge up the mouth!!!

Playing With Lots Of Paper

It's Thursday once again.
Time for the Xmas jumper to be put back on.
I was off to a Making Xmas Cards Course.
I made Iris Folding Xmas card, and a Quilling Xmas Card.
I enjoyed a mince pie and a coffee,
While the rain came down outside.
I enjoyed myself so much,
Making,sticking, and playing with paper!
I have put my name down onto the 
 Create a Christmas Wreath course.

Grinning Like A Cheshire Cat!

Welcome To My Hump Of The Week,
Still counting the days until I finish Job 2
Wearing a rather large grin while I was working :)
I went to a Titanic party that was held at my son's school.
Nice to have coffee and chat with some of the Year 6 parents.
I am starting to make my Christmas cards tomorrow
Nice to relax, sing a bit, drink coffee and be creative!

Pulling The String....

I have had a busy Tuesday.
Counting down the days until I finish at Job 2.
Only 10 days left..
I have been singing,dancing and lots of woo hoos!
I phoned up a Government Department.
I made the woman laugh so much.
I got complimented on me being so happy and funny...(I blushed)
My answer was, "the string gets pulled from my back, and the happiness just about lasts all day"

Amazing Monday :)

Late last night,
The new mop was broken in,
to mop up four pints of milk that dropped out of
our fridge :(
 Today got better:
First, I won tickets to the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC.
I will be leaving my Job 2 in 4 weeks.
One adult and the kids will miss me.
No one else.
Secondly, I applied for a Dinner Lady job at another First School a few weeks ago.
Had interview. Then I forgot about.
Email and phone call,this afternoon,
 they offered me the job :) :)
So I start the new job after Christmas.
I don't think I will be needing the stab vest at the new job.

LIFE GOES ON!

Welcome to Friday 13th.
I enjoyed a half price breakfast with hubby at Webb's.
Visited my late mum's grave with some roses.
As it would have been her 71st Birthday today.
The black cloud has now lifted.(As you can gather)
I am so happy I won't have to put up with the
 backstabbing two-faced bitches in the future.
As I have a one way ticket to another planet ;)

Behind The Painted Smile

Woo hoo Thursday once more,
Dark clouds have descended upon me.
My trip to Hell yesterday didn't help
My Kalm tablets have been helping a lot.
So I had to paint a smile on my face.
Feeling a little better, as making most of the hubby tomorrow,
As he has got the day off!!
So I making the most of him for a whole 6 hours!!

Loyalty Points!!

Welcome to Hump of the Week!
I have travelled to Hell and back today.
I got my fingers burnt on the return journey!
This week can't get any worst? Can it?
Oh, yes it's Friday 13th in 2 days!!!!
My humour helped me out at JOB 3
I had been talking about how many Loyalty points
I had racked up at Lovehoney to a co-worker.
He was grabbing his chest (I thought I may have to perform on CPR on him)
His response was:
"Loyalty points at Lovehoney?? I think I may have cracked a rib from laughing too much!!"

Taking The Piss....

Woo hoo it's 3 jobs Tuesday.
Diced with death twice by 2 shifts of Job 1.
I might have to attach a blue light to the top of my lolly stick.
Then there won't be NO EXCUSE that they can't see me!
Got compliments, saying how funny I am.
From the children while doing Job 2.
While attempting to do Job 3,
I walked into the men's toilet (to clean it),
The door was unlocked.
I disturbed a man taking a piss......
A quick exit was needed...

The Panda Did It....Honest!

Welcome to Monday.
Back on the wobbly work wheel (I groan)
I have had to put up with the wind, light rain, and bad drivers!
And that's just being outside doing Job 1!!!
Good job these Vitamin C tablets are working...just!
Upon returning to the Pink Princess from Job 2.
I see a Fiat Panda kissing my Pink Princess's ARSE!
Not good, as she now has a red permanent mark on her bumper
To remind me of her encounter with a Panda!

Lots of reduced food and a free coffee.

Stop Means Stop!

Another day another dollar..
I had a lovely morning sipping coffee at Webb's in Wychbold.
Now to do my second shift at Job 1.
It was raining heavily.
It was getting dark.
One van driver didn't understand the word Stop.
When he did finally stop, he was jamming his finger to his head.
Telling me I was a nutter for stopping him.
I pointed to the word STOP on my lolly stick.
Two road rage incidents in a week.....
I have high hopes there won't be third...
