Tripled Layered Friday!

I have nothing to declare except my genius - Oscar Wilde
Welcome to share my Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice warm hug to start Friday with.
Brew with breakfast.
I started my lollipop job on this day 2 years ago 🎆🎆🎆🎆🎇🎇🎈🎈🎈🎈
Thermals going on....
It looks cold out there...
So cold, we have to scrape Sexy Beast.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left.
Winter hat, gloves, winter coat goes on.
It's well freezing!
I puts on my lights.
Now let's get it on...
One car went under my stick with his sunroof open, I was so tempted to bounce my stick off it when it went past! It was a good job I had triple layers of clothing on under my coat....
I finished in one piece.
Now to go and B3
I have a good yak, with coffee and nibble.
Afterwards, I say a goodbye to my friend.
Now for the fun home.
My friend comes round for a minute to tell me some news. Her car is parked over my drive. One irate van driver comes huffing and puffing to my front door demanding my friend moves her car out of the way, as he can't get past!
(Funny a bigger lorry got past only 5 minutes earlier)
He stood there with his hands on his hips.
My friend moved her car, and I didn't even look at him when he drove past.
No Friday Feeling there! 
I had a quick lunch, and it was back out for me as well!
I still wear everything I wore this morning, except it has gone down to two layers of clothing not three.
Puts on my lights.
I chat with my two friends.
Then I start my final shift of the week.
The low lying sun I had problems with yesterday, keeps getting hid by the clouds.
One mother who witnessed two vans failing to stop yesterday afternoon, couldn't believe what I have to put up with.
Some cars had to suddenly stop when I lower my stick down!
I saw from friend from earlier, we had a chat until 4pm.
I wished her a good weekend. Off home I go. 
Much needed cup of tea when I got back.
I puts the tea in the oven ready for later.
I watched the remaining two episodes of
