How Low Can It Go?

The easier job I ever had was a store detective in a piano shop -
Rainer Hersch
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug :)
Brew with Breakfast.
Now to add the many layers...
Including the thermal vest!
It's freezing outside!
Uncovered Sexy Beast.
I gave hubby a cold wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before I left.
It was showing -2.5c....
Off to work I go...
Double winter hats, and big big winter gloves.
Now to walk up and put on my lights.
While I was waiting, I got chatting to someone
(who waves at me while I am doing my job)
I was saying how cold it was at -2.5c ..
He could better that, and then he tells me how much fun he had in Finland.
His wife and he, went to Finland before the first Lockdown to see the Northern Lights.
He showed me some great photos.
At night it was -29c!!!
A cup of water he left by the window in the hotel was completely frozen. The near-by river had frozen so much, you could walk across it.
I wished him a good weekend.
Put on my lights, and down to my spot I went.
Plenty of tanks around.
Not clearing their car windows.
I was chatting to someone about how cold it was today, he said, somewhere in the world the temperature is -60c!
I said, "So cold something would turn black and drop off!".
I was chatting with one mother who is good at crochet and knitting.
I went:
She laughed!
I had to do 3 BOINGS on cars that failed to stop!
I finished in one piece.
I went back to my car and got chatting to someone else about cold temperatures.
His future daughter in law comes from Canada, and it is -20c there.
"I will never moan about it being -2c here."
I wished him luck with his hand op next week.
I nipped into the Co-op to get tonight's tea.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Unloaded the shopping,
The dishwasher.
Time for a bit of coffee.
Then I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then I used the remaining tin of soup in the house, and added chilli to it....
Now to do the final shift of the week.
Big big sunglasses went on.
Two winter hats go on, and big gloves.
Turns on my lights.
The low lying sun is going to cause problems..
I have a little rabbit with my 2 friends before I start.
I wish my friends a good weekend, then I start.
I had about 3 limbo drivers go under my stick.
One had to brake suddenly.
At least I finished in one piece!
It was getting cold again.
Now to get that Spinning Bike out.
I finished watching 
"Something's Gotta Give"↓
Now moving on to great film↓
Once I done 20 minutes on the Spin Bike.
Time do a bit of Abs training....
Felt nice and warm after that!
Hubby comes back and has a nice wet sloppy πŸ’‹
Time to dish up the food!
We caught up with "Dragon's Den".
Hubby went food shopping with our younger son (Who was doing next door neighbour's shopping)
I looked into today's newspaper.
The first episode of Boon, was originally broadcast on this day in 1986. Starring Michael Elphick and David Daker, the show ran for 7 series and 93 episodes between 1986 and 1992.
Billie Jo Spears (born Billie Joe Moore) was an American country music singer. She reached the top 10 of the country music chart five times between 1969 and 1977, her biggest being "Blanket on the Ground", a 1975 number-one hit. She also had a large following in the United Kingdom with two of her singles reaching the pop top ten.
She would have been 84 years old 🎈
She sadly died aged 73 in 2011.
UK No.1 on this day in 1964:
 Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames - Yeh Yeh
USA No.1 on this day in 1966: 
The Beatles - We Can Work it Out/ Day Tripper
Hubby comes back with the shopping.
Caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea Time.
Now to make full use of my warm hands!

Here's What I Made Earlier!

If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway - Murphy's Law
Another sunny ahead!
I enjoyed a hug and a cup of tea in bed.
My sons's school having an European Bake Off Competition next week.
I won it last year with my German themed cake↓
 I had a muted response off my kids when I thought about entering again!
(Instead I am entered the Bake Off competition at the school where I work at Dinnertime instead!) 
I gave everyone sloppy πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ when they all left the house.
I enjoyed coffee and vitamin C while getting ideas for the Autumn themed cake I am going to make.
 Starting my new 🍭 job is far away now.
Just waiting on the uniform! \o/
