Puts Panda hat underneath my winter hat, winter coat goes on.
Goes and get my newspaper.
Fetches my big stick and off to turn on my lights.
Turns on my lights...
Now let's go to work...🍭
I am stood there, and 3 generations of the same family, crosses further up the road, once to drop the daughter at school, and to on the way back!
Some cars are still ignoring my big STOP sign on the otherside of the road.
I am glad for having lots of layers under my big coat, as it is keeping the cold out.
I noticed my late friend's wife goes past me twice in her 72 reg car.
Finished in one piece.
Gets back to Sexy Beast .
Soon as I leave the car park, it rains.
I park further down the road, as I drop off 4 bags for the Charity Shop.
I get a book while I'm in there.
Back home in the pouring rain.
Coffee machine goes on.
Sorts out the washing from the weekend.
Coffee Time.
Carried on with writing more posts of the blog up to lunch time.
Liquid lunch!
Nice and warm lunch!
On goes the sexy lumo trousers!
There was no spaces in the hall car park.
I had to park somewhere else.
The rain is coming down now!
One friend isn't coming for a rabbit until much later.
Out in the rain to get changed.
Winter hat, winter coat, and "waterproof" gloves
& big stick.
Goes and turns on my lights.
Walks back to see my mate who is undercover from the rain.
We have a good rabbit, until I have to go to work.
"See you tomorrow," I said to him. 
Off I go in the pouring rain.
It was getting heavier as my shift went on.
Some of the kids from the High School were soaked through.
My "waterproof gloves" are not waterproof!
I had to keep squeezing the water out of them.
One parent didn't have their coat on only an umbrella.
I said to them as I was about to cross them over.
"Your trousers ain't waterproof?"
"It doesn't help I have a hole in my shoe,"They replied.
"Didn't Traffic have a hit with "Hole in my Shoe?"
They didn't find that funny!
Still pouring down with rain.
It didn't help car drivers stopping in the Keep Clear space!
Finally finished in one piece with soggy gloves!
Gets my coat and everything off.
Back home in the rain.
Takes my wet coat, gloves and hat into the hat to dry out for tomorrow.
In need of a cup of brew!
My Nutcracker family is growing↓
I carry on updating the blog.
Hubby comes back and has a large sloppy one 💋
He has pizza.

Welcome to my Saturday 💕
I got a nice warm hug.
Now to listen to "Sounds of the 60s"

Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to drop one son off at work.
We was going to visit Alcester.
To spend the voucher at Waitrose.
To look in the Charity Shops.
However, the car park was rammed due to there being a  Vaccine Centre giving out Covid-19 Boosters.
No where to park.
Moving onto the nearby Waitrose in Stratford.
Wiped the trolley down.

Now to get some reduced food, bargains,...
Nice drink and nibble when we got back to the car.
Then on the way to buy some large steak..
Then back home to unpack the bargains!
Coffee machine went on...
Now for coffee!
After lunch, we went to get some bits from Sainsburys.
Nice price for Doughnuts.
Went to see my mum and dad afterwards.
Gave them two windmills.
Tidied up the grave.
Wished them a Happy Christmas.
It is the 1st Anniversary since I last spoke to my younger brother. Calling me a Gold Digger sealed it! 
I found Tony Boot's grave,
He was a ex-postman who I worked with↓↓↓
Dropped one son off, now to take the other son for his second Covid- 19 vaccine.
Then off to do some more food shopping.

My son did the shopping for our next door neighbour. Not much in the veggie option at Lidl.
I found a veggie option at Morrisons.
Back home to unpack the shopping.
