Spotting The Tank Drivers!

(Cold Feet Theme tune)
Welcome to a cold Thursday 🌋
Nice warm hug with kiss.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest.
Plus Christmas themed dress goes on.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
I'm glad my gloves were dry over night.
As it was freezing.
Two winter hats, gloves, and coat done right up.
Puts on my lights, 
Now let's go to work!
While I am stood there,
2 tanks went past.
(I call them tanks, as they just about clean their windscreen to peer through the gap they just cleaned!)
Traffic was building up on my side.
I had at least two cars stop in the Keep Clear area, and I have to walk behind them to cross people over!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Put's on the coffee machine.
Second door on the Advent Calender is:
Now to burn off some stress!
Good 20 minutes warming up the abs.
Now to drag out the Spin Bike.
Done another 20 minutes.
That's better.
Now for some coffee...
I writes yesterday's blog all the way to lunch.
Need something to keep me warm.
Now for part two.
Put on 2 winter hats and gloves.
I put on my lights.
Meet up with my 2 friends for a rabbit.
I said goodbye to them.
Now for the fun to start.
Bedlam started.....
No one was stopping, going straight under my stick, one car driver, drove around my lowered stick and nearly took out the two lights are in the middle of the road!
I think everyone has had the Friday Feeling too early!
I was glad to have finished in one piece after this!
Hometime.
Time for much needed Hot Chocolate!
Now to get the tea on the go.
Put's it in the oven.
Back to catching up with my book I was reading.
The tea is ready.
Afterwards had a look into today's newspaper.

You Were Made For Me!

Welcome to my weekend 👅
 I woke up early....
So early it was nice to listen to "The Sounds of the 60's in bed with a brew and a warm hubby! 
Then time for some Adult time 😤
Hubby then took one son to do the food shopping.
Oh dear, Lidl was rammed with people!
5 of the 7 tills were open.
He went back in the second time to do my neighbour's shopping.
He had to forget going into Home Bargains.
The queue was too long...
I meanwhile, wrote yesterday's blog post.
I had some nice post come:
&
My Shadows CD arrived!
Then searched high and low for a overlocker sewing machine....
Most are going for over £100+ 
I found one that was under £100.
It still was for sale. \o/
She sent me a video of it working.
(As I wasn't going to be caught out again like Monster in July)
Hubby comes back with the shopping. 
"Just like Christmas!" He said.
We have a cheese sandwich for lunch.
I carry on sewing on my bag.
We nip out to AP Meats for a little bit of meat to just cover us for this week...
Wind and rain.
I had to sit in the car as I forgot my facemask!
Gets back to sort out what we are having next week for meals.
I just have to sew the bottom of the bag tomorrow and finished!
Woo Hoo!
Quick look in the newspaper before tea.
