Several layers as well.
Now to leave the house.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
A bird comes visiting.
On goes the Winter coat, 2 hats and winter gloves.
Gets the newspaper.
Swaps newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Lights turned on.
Cars still braking hard,
Few cars on the otherside wasn't stopping either.
BOING, and BOING my big stick went!
The sun was coming up.
I was glad to finish in one piece!
Now off to Dunelm to get a new table lamp,
(As the old one has started buzzing)
Got the lamp base.
I'm in a need of a coffee.

There was no room in the normal car park where I park.Parked around the corner.
On goes the big big sunglasses.
Winter coat, one hat and gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Now to have a little rabbit.
That low lying sun is going to be a bit of a problem.
Time to say goodbye to my friends and to start my shift.
Oh dear here we go again.
Some of the drivers just ignoring my raised stick and going straight under it.
Limbo Dancing is back.
There was a old man in a blue car on the opposite side of the road, had his window down, and looking at me.
He said to me, "I used to be a lollypop man in Ireland...."
"Really?" I replied.
"Bloody Irish," he said and drove off!
I was quite glad of finishing as not many cars on my side were stopping!
Home time.
The moon was out already when I got back.
Now for a cup of brew!

Welcome to the house who front door is painted with the red cross ❌
We did the Heardles;
Heardle 60s was:
My answers:
Time to have breakfast with brew.
Hubby stopped in bed as he looked green and didn't have the energy to get up!
Out the door I went...
I got the newspaper.
On goes the winter coat, and gloves.
Now to go to work...🍭
Oh dear here we go again.
Two cars, one after each other done the Limbo.
Few minutes later, it happened again!
Lots of BOINGs given out as well.
Lots of car drivers were testing their car brakes at the last minute as well!
I was glad to have finished in one piece.
I went down to the local Co-op to get some bits we needed.
Back home to see how the patient was doing.
On goes the coffee machine.
Washing machine goes on.
Dish washer emptied, and loaded up.
All the recycling emptied.
(Recycling bins are being emptied this week,
Might need a 4th one as all three are full!)
Coffee time
I got the tea ready and put in the oven for later.
All my nice earrings arrived!
Hubby was still in bed with no energy.
I bought him the old favourite to help him get his energy levels. 
Light lunch time.
Hubby had his soup upstairs.
Now to go out for the afternoon fun!
I put on the winter coat.
Turned on my lights.
Sat back in Sexy Beast. 
My friends arrived for a quick rabbit...
Then it was time to say goodbye.
Now for some fun!
A parent I hadn't seen for a couple of day turned up.
"I thought you had left the country?"I asked.
"I wish I had, working from home, and it's cold, much warmer in the office."
"You could put a blanket around yourself to keep warm!"I responded.
One grandparent I talk to has gone to Wales for a week's holiday.It turning out to be one of those holidays:
One Restaurant has burned down.
The Pub is closed to due to building work.
The Granddad has scratched the car on something.
As rain is coming in on Friday, they are coming back early!
I had to give out some BOINGs as well.
One Driving Instructor driving a Electric Car failed to stop, while I was in the middle of the road! Good job the girl I was crossing over, got to the pavement in time.
One of the parents told me to get hubby tested for Covid.
(It's only 5 months since he had it last time)
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Hubby was still in bed.
Put the oven on for the tea.
Now to try to update the blog.
Ex-plum phones up wanting to make arrangement outside the CMS.
When he said,"As much as I can afford to pay you!"
The bell in my head started to ring....
He started to shout at me when I said no to the arrangement.
Stating back to 2018, when he only paid child maintenance for 4 months and then paid £1 in June.
"You are trying to screw me over!"He screamed at me.
I shouted back,"No, you are trying to screw me!"
Then I slammed the phone down.
He has only got to pay for another 12 months, and that's done.He can then sit in his counting room and count his pennies.....
We all took a Covid Test.
Mine was negative.
Tea was ready at this point.
Now to look into today's newspaper.
