2 winter hats and thermal gloves went on.
On the way to turning on my lights, a black car went past me, making a terrible from the engine, and they didn't have their headlights on either!
While waiting to turn them on. A long based truck came out of the junction with no lights on, and had properly scraped his windscreen. I call it a tank!
After I turned on my lights.
Time to walk down to my spot!
Now for the fun to start!
One Black BMW raced past me at about 60 m.p.h and came back down the road at the same speed!
Considering it is a 30 m.p.h zone!
I just had 3 BOINGS on the car roofs when they went under my stick!
I finished in one piece.
As I was going back to Sexy Beast, I got chatting to some parents I cross over.
"Are you going home for a hot coffee?" They asked.
"Going to change out of this coat, and have a browse in the charity shop." I replied.
"See you later," They said.

I said hello to two women I say hi to in the afternoons.
I said to them,"To do some relaxing this weekend....!"
"Fat chance of that,"Replied one.
Then I sang the following to them as they started to walk off:
"Relax, don't do it
When you wana go to it
Relax, don't do it"
They thought it was funny ;)
I wished the parent who lost her dad just before a happy weekend in the circumstances.
She is cleaning out her late dad's flat this weekend.
