Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
My Birthday was in the local newspaper..↓↓↓
Hubby gets ready to go to work.
He has a nice sloppy wet one before he goes.
I stop in a warm bed for a little longer.
Then it time to rise.
The thermal vest goes on once more.
Then it's time to go out for coffee and chat.
I get the newspaper on the way...
Parked up.
Then my friend and I went to the Coffee Shop.
Coffee and toast time.
We had a good yak.
Then we paid a visit to the Charity Shop.
I got some good bargains.
My friend gave me a Birthday Card, Birthday Presents and flowers.
She wished me a Happy Birthday for Monday.
Back home I go.
I put my friend's flowers on the doorstep.
Unpacked my bargains from the Charity shop.
Then I started to write yesterday's blog post up to lunchtime.
I got the breadmaker out and tried to make a bread mix of Chedder and Sun Dried Tomato.
I carried on writing my blog post.
The washing machine went on.
(Saves me doing over the weekend)
Tea at 3.
I tidied up the kitchen, ready for the delivery of the new cooker! 
Oh dear there was smell of burning coming from the kitchen.
The bread has risen over the pan and some of the dough had dropped on the heated element.
Nice smell of burnt bread!
In the end of the baking programme, the bread wasn't done either!
Will try again tomorrow...
(I will have to go easy on the Yeast this time!)
Hubby came back and a sloppy wet one.
Tea is served!
Wedges with Fish Cakes and Mushies.
Yum

Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice big hug.

Thermal vest goes on,
As well as the Christmas Jumper.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet oneπŸ’‹ before I leave.
Time for the 2 winter hats and winter gloves.
I put on my lights.
Now to walk down to my spot.
In the space of 10 minutes of starting.
Two cars went straight under my stick without even stopping.A third truck with a large metal wheel on the back, went under my stick.
My stick nearly hit the wheel as it went under my stick!
(It going to be one of those days!)
Some car driver had to use their brake quickly!
As least  I survived in one piece!
I moved the car to the Co-op car park.
I used the Public Loos, so cold was that toilet seat! Plus having so many layers to pull up!
I picked up my lucky bags on the way back to meet my friend in the car park.
Now off for chat, coffee and nibble!
Sourdough toast with marmite :)
Americano with blue milk!
I had another Americano, it tasted so nice!
Nice crane shot when we left the coffee shop.
Then we visited the Charity shop.
(Got some nice things in there)
On the way back to the car park.
One of my friends who I rabbit to was coming down in the High Street in his car.
Then as he parked in the same car park we were, I crept up behind when he was getting his mask,
"Don't forget the mask!" I whispered to him.
I said see u later to him.
Gave my friend some carrot cake that was in the magic bag.
Now to fetch the newpaper on the way home.
Unpacked everything.
Cut the voucher out for Lidl which will come in useful....
What's behind the Advent Door today?
Lunchtime.
Now to for the final shift of the week.
On goes the 2 winter hats and gloves.
I got two brownies for my two friends.
I walks up the road to turn on my lights.
Now to walk down to have a rabbit with my friends.
Gave out the brownies.
I wished them all a good weekend.
Last final week than I break up for the Christmas Holidays.
The low lying sun wasn't helping...
Still no excuse for what was happening!
Oh dear, I had 7 cars do the limbo dance under my stick in the space of 20 minutes.
One green mini just put his foot down and went straight under my stick which was straight in front of me!
There would have been 7 tap and cracks if I lowered that stick even lower!
Parents couldn't believe what they were seeing.
One cyclist couldn't wait for me to cross him over, straight over into moving traffic!
I am glad I finished in one piece.
Home time.
I put the pies in the oven.
The veg was going on 20 minutes before the pies were ready.
I tried to put on the linings on the window in the hall. It was getting very frustrating,as I couldn't get the curtains off due to the curtain pole ends not being able to be took off!
I left it, and put the kettle on for a much needed brew!
Now to carry on writing some blog posts.
Hubby came back and was rewarded with a sloppy wet  πŸ’‹
Now to dish up the tea!
Yum!
After a while, hubby started going cold and blowing hot.
No food shopping for him!
That will be done tomorrow instead.
Quick look into the newspaper.
Peter Sarstedt briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was an English singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive Sarstedt.
Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969. Set to a "faux European waltz tune" and described as "a romantic novel in song", it won an Ivor Novello Award. The record remained Sarstedt's biggest hit. He had 1 more hit single and 1 hit album but despite numerous releases never had chart success again. 
He would have been 80 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 75 in 2017.
Paul  Hardcastle is a British composer, musician, producer, songwriter, radio presenter and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known for his song "19", which went to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1985.

Known as the Hillbilly Heartthrob, and following a singing cowboy film role as the Young Sheriff, Young's singles charted for more than 30 years. In failing health, he committed suicide at 64 on this day in 1996. 
Michael Nesmith  was an American musician, songwriter, actor, producer, and novelist. He was best known as a member of the pop rock band the Monkees and co-star of the TV series The Monkees (1966–1968).

He played a 12-string guitar, performing on a custom-built Gretsch electric during his time with the Monkees and various 12-string acoustic models during his post-Monkees career.
He was also an executive producer of the film Repo Man (1984). In 1981, Nesmith won the first Grammy Award given for Video of the Year for his hour-long television show, Elephant Parts.
