Back home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Done a bit of housework while the coffee was being done...
I got on with writing my blog.
DPD phoned me to ask where my house was!
I had to go outside and wave to him as he drove past. He slammed the brakes on.
He went in the back of his van, searching  through the parcels around until he found mine!
He handed me the parcel.
Our Christimas Jumpers has arrived!
Now for some liquid lunch.
Then it was time for Round 2.
Something interesting left in the car park↓↓
I got my two winter hats, winter coat on, and turned on my lights.
I came back and I was chatting to one friend as the other friend was out and about.
We still had a good rabbit!
I said goodbye to my friend as I was about to start Round 2.
With the sun going down, the temperatures dropped. It was getting quite cold!
A few BOINGs given out to the cars on the otherside they decided not stop.
Even parking in the Keep Clear space!
One of the parents gave me Gingerbread man.
I said thank you so much!
I was glad to finish in one piece.
Now back I home I go...
Time for a brew!
Now to enjoy the Gingerbread man!

Quick read of the newspaper.
 Cynthia Payne was an English brothel keeper and party hostess who made headlines in the 1970s and 1980s, when she was convicted of running a brothel at 32 Ambleside Avenue, in Streatham, a southwestern suburb of London.There are two comedy films that are loosely based on her life, both released in 1987: Wish You Were Here, about her adolescence, with Emily Lloyd in the lead role, and Personal Services, about her adult life, starring Julie Walters as Cynthia. Both were written by David Leland, who directed Wish You Were Here. 
She would have been 88 years old. 🎈
She died aged 82 in 2015.
