Time For The Thermals To Come Out!

If you can afford it, then there is no pleasure in buying it 
- Wallis Simpson
Welcome to my Thursday fun πŸ‘Œ
I had a nice warm hug with a brew.
The thermal vest went on...
Gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I went out.
Woah it was a bit nippy out.
4 layers, under my Winter coat.
Winter hat and gloves were put on.
I put my lights on,
Let the fun now start...🍭
It was a bit quiet for traffic as the High School had broken up for their half term holiday yesterday. Still had a few cars trying not to stop!
Especially going past, looking up at the stick as they drove past.
A few minutes to go before I finished, a car came out of the nearby side road, put her foot down and sped past under my stick!
At least I didn't walk out in front of it!
Once finished, off to the Co-op to get a top up.
While bagging up, I just had to sing along....very loud to it!
I gets the newspaper on the way back home.
I noticed my neighbour going up the road on his Mobility scooter.
(He didn't too well)
Coffee machine goes on....
Warms up the computer to start to write the blog post...
But first, coffee...
After my Amazon delivery had been, I noticed an Ambulance was out the front.
Then a stretcher was took next door.
My neighbour was brought out on it and loaded up into the Ambulance, and it drove away.
I asked my neighbour's son, "what was wrong with his dad?"
"His oxygen level is too low. He was looking very ill,He has lived a extra 12 months to what the doctors said last year!"He replied.
Back to finish my blog post, up to lunch.
Back out for the afternoon shift.
3 layers under my Summer Coat.
Once I turned on my lights..
I enjoyed soaking up the rays...
I had none of my friends turn up to chat to.
Soaked up the rays until I started my shift. 
Most car driver did stop, just had a few just stop in the Keep Clear space.
I finished in one piece.
Now back home.
Time for a much needed coffee...
I was sorting out the tea, when had a message from hubby, he working over, but he can leave early tomorrow because of it \o/
He came back later and still had sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Tea is now served.
Quick look in today's newspaper.

I have ordered some things to do my D.I.Y project.
Hopefully when they deliver them, it's to my house and not one of the factories...
The Business which sent my parcel, has now got so quiet over a refund, might have to go down the legal route if I don't hear from them soon.
Sleep Tea time.
Friday Feeling 🎈 is back tomorrow🎈
