It Must Be The Friday Feeling!

 "I'm looking for corny in my life." —Iris Simpkins (The Holiday)
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈🎈
Time to get up early and do the Heardle.
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast time.
Thermal vest went on, as well as some layers.
Big coat went on.
Now out I go...
I give hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I go.
Puts on my winter coat, 2 hats and winter gloves.
The Moon is still out↓
Got the newspaper.
Now with my big stick, I go and turn on my lights.
Now let's go to work...🍭
While I was waiting.
A man came up to say sorry for driving under my stick yesterday afternoon!
 He couldn't see me due to low lying sun!
Thanks for saying sorry, and I crossed him over.
Going to circle the date for my Calendar.
One grumpy parent ignored  me twice as I crossed them over!
Lots of last minute braking as well.
The sun is coming up, more fun later on in the afternoon!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Back home I go.
On goes the coffee machine.
Watching the washing baskets fill up by the washing machine!
Unloads the dishwasher and loads it back up!
Coffee Time!
Writes one blog post.
Has a early liquid lunch.
I had to meet a friend to pick some things she sorted out. What I don't want, I am giving it to the Charity Shop at Stratford Recycle Centre.
I then drive to work.
Big big sunglasses are put on.
Followed by big winter coat, winter hat and gloves.
Goes put on my lights.
That low lying sun is going to cause problems!
I have a rabbit with my friends up to the time I do my final shift of the week!
I saw grumpy parent who ignored me this morning.
"What was the matter with your voice box this morning?" I asked.
"You were busy,"It replied.
"Never busy for you!" I said, and blew them a kiss to them as they carried on walking.
I wish them a good weekend.
It looks like yesterday afternoon is repeating itself.
A convoy of cars are not stopping, even a white car went under my stick at 10 m.p.h!
Back to Limbo dancing! 
The otherside didn't help by not stopping!
I was glad to have survived this one!
Santa is visiting↓
The price is £7.50 to visit Santa.
Home time.
Time for a brew...
An Amazon delivery was delivered.
However not to my front door but was put before the garden gate in the rain.
At least I have found it!
Hubby came home with a take-away!
He had a sloppy one before he unwrapped the bag!
Now to look into today's newspaper.

Paul  Hardcastle is a British composer, musician, producer, songwriter, radio presenter and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known for his song "19", which went to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1985. He is 63 years old 🎈

Faron Young  was an American country music producer, singer and songwriter from the early 1950s into the mid-1980s and one of its most successful and colorful stars. Hits including "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')" and "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young" marked him as a honky-tonk singer in sound and personal style; and his chart-topping singles "Hello Walls" and "It's Four in the Morning" showed his versatility as a vocalist. Known as the Hillbilly Heartthrob, and following a movie role, the Young Sheriff, Young's singles reliably charted for more than 30 years. In failing health, he died by suicide at 64, on this day in 1996.
