Pump It Up!

Be aware that a halo has to fall only a few inches to be a noose - Dan McKinnon
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Hug with brew.
Thermal vest going on.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
Time for those big big sunglasses come out!
Still had to wear my gloves.....
Nice sunrise.
Puts on my lights...
Let's go to work...🍭
It was so nice to see the sun back!
Until the clouds covered it up!
Some drivers find is so funny not to stop...
Let's hope they don't chance it too often!
Finished in one piece.
I nipped into Co-op to get some top up shopping until Friday.
(I save £9.50 on my shopping too :)) 
I got the newspaper and my neighbour's magazine on the way home.
Coffee machine gets put on.
Puts the shopping away.
Into some lighter clothing..
Now to play with the new toy!
I did a great 20 minutes session on it.
Now for the Spin bike to come out for 15 minutes...
Felt better after that.
Washed and changed.
Coffee time.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
All the way to lunchtime!
My neighbour showed off his new mobility scooter, that now folds up itself.
I gives him his magazine.
Light lunch.
Now out for Part 2 in the sunshine!
No need for gloves.
Puts on my lights.
It's going to be fun with low lying sun dazzling the car drivers when they come up the road.....Then the yellow peril is whipping out my big lollipop stick!
I only had one friend to rabbit with.
(The other friend was probably taking his sister shopping)
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now for Part 2.
I was surprised how this afternoon went!
Not a lot of cars were going under my stick!
Hometime for me!
More good music to sing along with:
I got the tea all done.
In the oven it went....
Now for a much needed brew!
I looked the long range forecast for next week, especially next Friday...
It's going to feel like -9c and snow will be appearing in the afternoon.
Triple layers of thermals....and a spade to dig out Sexy Beast! 
I gives hubby another wet sloppy 💋.
Time to dish up the grub!
Chicken and Vegetables Casserole.

 Welcome to my Monday 🎈

And some use out of Kenny too!
