Ice Cold Monday

A true friend is one who stabs you in the front - Oscar Wilde
Welcome abroad my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug to start the working week with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Looked out of window...
It looks cold out there!
Thermal vest goes on.
Plenty of layers to match!
Now to uncover Sexy Beast. 
Nice full moon!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
On the way to work, the temperature drops further to  -1.5c.
Two winter hats, and big big winter gloves go on.
Goes onto put on my lights.
Still seeing tanks and cars with no lights on.
Lights go on, now to walk on down the road to my spot.
There is a poster of a female comedienne to do her act soon on the nearby telegraph pole near to my post.
(Bear this in my mind for later)
I knew it was going to be one of those day.
Several cars stop in the KEEP CLEAR space, thus me not be able to cross kids over, had to do it further up the road!!!!
One car went past with only a little hole he had made to see out of the windscreen, no other windows was scraped!
One parent said of the woman on the poster,
"That's your twin sister! Are you going to see her perform?"
I smiled and said,"What do I want to do that for?
When I can look in the mirror and be funny!"
One big lorry parked in the KEEP CLEAR space.
Good job there was a space behind it for me to cross the kids over!
Then it was the turn of car doing the limbo under my stick, plenty of BOINGS giving out!
The man who had a trip to Finland before our first Lockdown appeared.
He asked who makes me laugh?
"Programmes like Ain't Half Hot Mum, Kenny Everett, Dear John,etc"
He likes Chubby Brown, I replied, Les Dawson.
Then he said,"Jimmy Carr."
I replied,"Can't stand him, he is funny as a Chocolate fireguard in a hot summer!"
I then crossed him and someone else over.
Finished this interesting morning session.
Now to nip into the Post Office to post my letter to the American Prison Pen Pal.
Because I enclose a homemade facemask I made, it was a bulky, I had to fill out a customs note.
£4.20 later.
(Still cheaper than flying out to hand deliver it!)
Collects newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now to change into my pink lyrca!
Out comes the spin bike
On go another film to watch.
Just getting into it.
Knock on the door.
"Can I take a parcel in for next door?"
"Yes," give him my name, puts parcel on my stairs.
Swings leg over bike to start again.
Knock on the door again.
Gets off swing bike, the delivery driver wants parcel back as my neighbour son is there with him wanting his parcel. I give the delivery driver the parcel back, and shuts the door.
Now back onto the spin bike I go.
After 35 minutes on that, out comes the Abs machine.
A good 20 minutes on that!
While I was working out on that, the soup maker was on.
Puts Abs machine back.
Get's changed.
Now to have some nice soup with coffee!
Chicken and Veg Soup.
Blue skies are out!
Round two.
Next door's carer had parked behind my car.
I came out, and she reversed off the drive!
Big Big Sunglasses Time
I puts on two hats, and gloves.
Turns on my lights and chats with my two friends.
The low lying sun is going to be a BIG problem!
I said goodbye to my friends.
I started the first afternoon shift of the week.
Oh dear,
One blue Jar with a woman driving, didn't stop at all and done a limbo dance right under my lowered stick!
Another car went open, and I could have tapped their car ariel they were were that close going under my stick.
More fun of cars on the otherside of the road not stopping either!
I am glad I finished in one piece!
Back home.
Covers up Sexy Beast.
(It's going down to -3c tonight)
Puts the kettle on.
But first, time to get a little warm.
A quick play with Henry helped!
Much needed Brew!
I carried on writing yesterday's blog post.
Once done,
Time for a bit of Meat Stir Fry!
Afterwards a look in today's newspaper.
Chris Montez (born Ezekiel  MontaΓ±ez)  is an American guitarist and vocalist, whose stylistic approach has ranged from rock & roll to pop standards and Latin music. His rock sound is exemplified in songs such as his 1962 hit "Let's Dance", which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. When his early music's popularity began to fade, he switched to a more traditional role as a popular singer of soft ballads, scoring hits with “The More I See You” and “Call Me" in 1966. He has also recorded in Latin styles. Over the intervening years, he has continued to work in all three modes. 
He is 79 years old 🎈 
Windsor Davies  was a British actor. He is best remembered for playing Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum (1974–1981) over its entire run. The show's popularity resulted in Davies and his co-star Don Estelle achieving a UK number one hit with a version of "Whispering Grass" in 1975. He later starred with Donald Sinden in Never the Twain (1981–1991), and his deep Welsh-accented voice was heard extensively in advertising voice-overs. 
He sadly died on this day in 2019 aged 88.

I had a nice hot shower.
Followed by a cup of Sleep Tea.
At least hubby won his 2 snooker matches \o/
His team won 4-1 \o/
Once the heating went off,
I kept the bed warm on his winning return.

 Welcome to my Sunday love πŸ’“
I had a hot shower before breakfast.
Then it was warm hug with brew.
Going out to get in the mood for Christmas!
B3 was free!
The singing snowman were singing!
We looked at the pets, and in Hobbycraft.
Time for a drink!
I had my normal order.
Hubby had a sausage and egg sandwich.
We left to look around further and still left empty handed!
Back home.
I carried on writing the 3 blog entries.
Hubby was putting up a curtain rail in the Dining Room.
We had a later lunch...
While we were listening to the radio, one of our favourite songs came on.
I started singing along, and some lyrics were missing!
"The bar men used to call her "Little Lisa, Looney Tunes"
The song is at the end of this blog post. 
Then we had to go out and nip to Morrisons to pick up a Magic Bag.
Plus Hubby's dad had no shopping left in his house as his foot was still swollen up since last week.So hubby did some shopping for him as well.
Gets home to unpack the Magic Bag.
I went round to see my nextdoor neighbour to give him some Figs as he like figs.
We had a chat for half an hour.
When I got back, hubby had put up the curtain rail! \o/
I then went to work on making a sausage casserole.
Out came the heavy red pot with lid.
My amazon order arrived.
The driver was glad I have put instructions on Amazon now, where my house is. That helped.
Tools for my upcoming D.I.Y project.
To make the bed even warmer than it is,
The Teddy bed fitted sheet arrived!
Nice and cozy in there now!
Dished up the grub.
Went back out to get one more Magic Bag of the remaining weekend.
