Plus lots of layers.
No scraping of Sexy Beast to do.
I gives hubby a wet sloppy πŸ’‹
Off I go.
The wrong gate was open to the car park,
So I had to reverse, and get the car through the out gate.
Once I got my coat on, I went to lock the car, and my phone slid off the roof of the car onto the floor!
Am I going to have a bad day?
2 winter hats on, as well as big big gloves. 
I put on my lights and off I went down the road to have some fun 🍭🍭
Plenty of cars going under the stick!
One red car had to do an emergency stop!
Two drivers on the other side just ignored me and carried on driving!
Welcome to Monday!
I had a chat with someone today marked the 8th anniversary of his wife's death.
Last week was an anniversary of his son's death.
No wonder he hates January!
He pointed to the poster of the Comedienne and said,"Is that you?"
"No, she has seven chins, I only have five.
Anyway I am more funnier than her!"
He laughed and agreed with me.
I told someone I had visited Alcester's Charity shops on Saturday.
"More crap?" He said.
"Yes,but it's my crap now!" I replied.
Finished in one piece!
I fetched the newspaper on the way home.
Coffee maker went on.
Tumble drier also went on.
Cleaned the kitchen.
Unloaded and loaded up the dishwasher.
Now for coffee!
Then I moved some craft crap around.
Now I can move about in the Living Room!
I chatted with my friend for an hour.
Now to use up the soup!
Then it is time for an eventful afternoon shift.
Singalong music on the way.
Two winter hats and winter gloves goes on.
Puts on my lights.
I got talking with my 2 friends before I started.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the afternoon shift.
Then it kicked off!
I stopped a silver Land Rover Discovery 08 plate.
I was in the middle of road, crossing the parents and kids over, when the Land Rover didn't want to wait, she put her foot down, went around my hand, up the pavement and round and then turned left into the nearby side road!
All the parents couldn't believe what they just saw!
Just a few minutes after I returned to the pavement and raised my stick.
Two cars went under it!
Limbo dancers time!
I got one of the parents to write down the license plate of the Land Rover, as it went past me, with the Driver waving at the parent.
My friend with his dog just as I was finishing.
I told him of the fun I just had!
He couldn't believe it!
I had a chin wag with him for 10 minutes.
"See you tomorrow" as I drove away.
Back home.
I covered up Sexy Beast,
Just in case it turns freezing overnight.
Time for a much needed brew!
I wrote yesterday blog post.
Then it was time for meat-free Stir Fry!
