Perhaps x 3

A bore is a man who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company - Gian Vincenzo Gravina
Welcome to a freezing cold Tuesday!
The thermal knickers gets put on.
I had more warmth...↓
 I had warm hug and a cup of tea ↓
 I gave everyone sloppy wet πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
 Nice and frosty↑
 Cold, cold, cold↑↑↑
 Crispy and cold.
I have so many layers on,
I feel like the Michelin Man
There is traffic lights being installed by my stop↓
 Then the blue van from yesterday comes back.
First blocks the road by putting a trailer on the drive by the skip.
Then he parks the van on double yellow lines and in front of a bus stop!
 Now I can't see up the road!!!
I still have cars failing to stop!
I saw and waved to an ex-postman I used to work with.
When I finished my shift, I bumped into the ex-postman I had been waving too. We had a handshake, hug, and chat.
I gets back home.
It's still freezing!
  I have coffee and nibble
Now back out for a little ride...
More singing to be done..
Time to look in the newspaper↓
 Jodie Foster is 57 years old 🎈

 The sun might be out..
It's still cold! 
 I have a nice red face when I finished.
More singing along..
Gets home,
It's still cold↓
 Coffee and nibble↓
 Then back to it🍭
The van hasn't moved since 8.20am↓
 I chat with the local window cleaner.
Who remembered me as that sexy Postwoman!
Perhaps I might have a better afternoon shift than I had yesterday
As I am trying to cross people over.
Several cars go under my 🍭stick.
I was in the middle of the road, when a black car on my left, failed to stop and nearly took my left shoulder, arm, and hand with him! 
I did wave to my parent's former postman who waved back at me.
I gets back home.
Gets changed.
Off to the Happy Place Of Work. 
Some good music to work to..
Does my bit.
Then back home to make the evening meal.
 Pasta with homemade tomato sauce
 Off to do the final job with more good music↓
 I gets back to catch up on more:
Then off to a 16 tog duvet with a warm hubby!
