Trying To Keep The Cold Bits Warm!

You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do - Olin Miller
Welcome to my Thursday🎈
Could the schools be closed down soon?
I enjoyed my a warm hug and a cup of tea↓
 I gave everybody their sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
Before I left the house↓
 It was freezing cold.
My tree pic↓
  I told one man who asked me if I was warm enough?
I replied,"I will be wearing these thermals for a long time yet, you can never have cold bits!"
He laughed.
Another man was moaning about the books in the local library. I suggested some Stephen King.He doesn't like horror.
"What about James Herbert? He does some great books!"
I left him with a food for thought!
Still some cars don't understand the word Stop! 
I finished in one piece...JUST!
I filled up Sexy Beast  
 I had a nice light lunch↓
 Now for more singing along...↓
I had a look in the newspaper↓
 Clarence "Frogman" Henry, American pianist and singer (Ain't Got No Home).He is 83 years old🎈

Terry Hall is an English musician and the lead singer of The Specials, and formerly of Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield, Terry, Blair & Anouchka and Vegas.He is 61 years old 🎈

 I looked over the fields of fun↓
 Only two days left of dishing up the school dinner.
When I left I had a nice red face.
Back to some more singing along↓
 The bin must have had something to drink↓
 Quick coffee...
Then back out...
Some of the cars were still failing to stop.
I survived for my last day tomorrow.
I gets back home.
Off to the Happy Place Of Work 
With some great music↓
Back home for some nice tea↓
We nipped into Aldi to get some flowers for my mum for Mothering Sunday↓
 There was no bread, jam or meat on the shelves. I am glad I got the flowers!
When I got back,
I went down to do the final job of the day with some great music↓
By the time I got back...
My rollers were so hot hot hot... 
 My final day at two of my jobs tomorrow.
At least the Friday Feeling is returning...🎈

How Many Boxes????

Beauty is only skin deep, ugly to the bone - Murphy's Law
We had a bit of a lie-in.
It was nice to have a warm hug and a cuppa↓ 
 We still had loads of boxes to sort through.
I needed a break!
Off to do some food shopping↓
I bumped into an ex-co-worker who I used to work with at 
 If it got any worst with panic buying, and soldiers would be called out. She would argue with a soldier with a loaded gun if she had too, she told me.
Good luck with that! I told her.
There was a nice sewing machine for sale↓
 I have two, I don't need a third!
We go into Lidl and there is no pasta, bread or toilet roll again.
I bump into a good friend trying to find some dried spaghetti.
We get the shopping home.
Something has to come out of the freezer..
Why leave it to go to waste?↓
 I sorted all the things I need for my the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
So many boxes to sort out.
The Plumber is coming out next Saturday to fit the dishwasher and washing machine.
We all went to bed early,
As Monday's are the most tiring day of the week!
