Soggy Glove Time!

A dress has no meaning unless it makes a man want to take it off - Francoise Sagan.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start the Hump with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
(Several layers!)
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
It's the first of December. 
Santa Hat month!
On goes 2 winter hats and gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Now's let go to work...🍭
I was walking to my spot, when two High School teenagers were trying to cross over the road.
No cars would stop.
I got to my spot, and lifted my stick in the air.
The traffic stopped!
Perhaps this will carry on....
And it did.
Not one car went under my stick, all stopped!
It must be the sun's rays doing something!
I finished in one piece.
I nipped into Co-op.
I had no problems like last week.
Then I got the newspaper and next door's magazine.
Back home.
I put up my Advent Calender.
The first tea is:
My friend came to enjoy coffee, cake and yak.
We had a good chat, and waved goodbye.
She came back 5 minutes later as she forgot to get the peas I had put in my freezer.
I needed something hot for my lunch.
That's better!
There were some dark clouds, but I didn't think I would need to wear those sexy lumo trousers.
To play safe, I put on my boots, with 2 winter hats and gloves.
I put on my lights and walked back for a yak with my 2 friends.
One offered me a mince pie.
I said no.
The other friend offered me a doughnut.
I had to say no.
I laughed and said:
"I don't want the 5th chin returning thanks!"
 Then I saw the dark cloud...
10 minutes before I was due to start,
The rain started.
We got under some shelter before I was due to start.
Once it was time, I said goodbye to my friends.
The rain kept coming.
All the car drivers going past looked at me getting wet.
Getting soggy gloves by the minute!
At least the car drivers were stopping for me.
The rain stopped just before I finished.
On the way home, one car behind for half a mile didn't put on his headlights on until the car behind him kept flashing him.
Then he decided to sit on my arse the rest of the way!
I was glad to get home.
It had started to rain again.
I still covered up Sexy Beast, as the temperatures were going to fall during the early hours and a frost was due!
My kids then told me about the fun of the Sixth Form Quiz they both entered.
The younger son had got all the Christmas Songs and the artists, but the teacher wouldn't accept them as his team won the previous round.
I was proud of them both for all of their answers to the questions.
(I am glad I keep playing Christmas songs in the house!)
 Hot Chocolate time!
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Tea was dished up.
Posted blog post.
Now for a little look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons)  was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums across the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He would have been 91 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 54 in 1985. 
While hubby did his working out on the abs machine, and had a shower.
I carried on reading the book about the filming of The Godfather. 
Sleep Tea Time.
Another 100 pages read.
Only hoping the sunshine will be back tomorrow.
Soggy gloves had just about dried out......

It's My Party, I Can Cry If I Want To!

 Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anybody going faster than you is a maniac - George Carlin
Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big hug to start Monday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Then the rain came down......
On goes the sexy lumo trousers!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before I leave.
On goes the winter coat and boots!
Now for the fun to start...🍭
The clouds disappear and the sun comes out!
I even take off my gloves, as I am getting well warm!
I crossed one old man on his mobilty scooter.
When he goes, I look down and he has dropped his newspaper on the road. I pick it up and chase up the road to give him it back.
I had a thank you for it!
Now to get back to my spot!
It's nice for parents to cross up the road and not use me!
Few cars just went under the stick....
Few boings went on top of their roofs!
The sun was out now....
Finished in one piece!
I pick up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
Phones up the council, and waits for the phone to be answered.
The Permission has been granted, the letter is in the post.
As for seeing the sky through holes in our roof, there is a backlog, and we are put on the very long waiting list to get the roof done! 
In need of some strong coffee after that!
 My hubby's snooker cue was finally redelivered here after it was delivered elsewhere on Friday.
I told the driver, he will be delivering my parcel tomorrow!
(Just a heads up!)
My draught excluders also was delivered.
(Not bad considering I wasn't going to have them until 1st November!)
I get 1 and 1/2 blog posts just before lunch!
Lunchtime arrives...
It forecasted sunshine this afternoon.
The sexy lumo trousers were left off.
As soon as I got into Sexy Beast it started raining! 
It's pouring down with rain.
On goes the winter coat and boots.
I put on my lights, and wait for my friend to come to have a chat before I start.
It stops raining, but there is a big black cloud to my left.
Now for the fun to start...🍭
Some car drivers need to take a eye test, as they were ignoring my stick and just driving under it!
One car actually drove around the lowered stick!
The rain went, and the sun came out!
I'm glad the sexy lumo trousers wasn't put on!
Finished in one piece!
I chattered with my friend for 20 minutes.
Then off home I went.
My youngest son was a bit quiet and upset when I got back. He had got things for his "Friends" in 6th form, texted them all to come to the 6th form common room.
(He had used his £10 Lidl voucher to get them all)
No one turned up at all :(
They were all in the nearby Shopping centre.
He brought all the food back he had bought.
(I gave him a big hug)
I carried on writing the third blog post.
Hubby didn't have enough fuel to go to snooker tonight, so he is coming back after work.
He had a nice sloppy wet 💋 when he came back.
I did the Stir Fry.
Afterwards I had to get a Magic Bag from Starbucks.
That black cloud didn't look nice.
There was a big queue for petrol at Morrisons.
I had to sit in the queue as Starbucks is in Morrison's car park.
The Morrison's car park was empty and so was Starbucks.
Picked up the magic bag.
I go another route as car drivers blocked one of the way I was going home.
Back home.
Now for a quick read of the newspaper.
Bernard  Jewry , known professionally as Shane Fenton and later as Alvin Stardust, was an English rock singer and stage actor. Performing first as Shane Fenton in the 1960s, Jewry had a moderately successful career in the pre-Beatles era, hitting the UK top 40 with four singles in 1961–62. However, he became better known for singles released in the 1970s and 1980s as Alvin Stardust, a character he began in the glam rock era, with hits including the UK Singles Chart-topper "Jealous Mind", as well as later hits such as "Pretend" and "I Feel Like Buddy Holly".
He would have been 79 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 72 in 2014.
Barbara  Dickson OBE (born Dunfermline, Fife) is a Scottish singer whose hits include "I Know Him So Well", "Answer Me" and "January February". Dickson has placed fifteen albums in the UK Albums Chart from 1977 to date, and had a number of hit singles, including four which reached the Top 20 in the UK Singles Chart. The Scotsman newspaper has described her as Scotland's best-selling female singer in terms of the numbers of hit chart singles and albums she has achieved in the UK since 1976.
She is 74 years old  🎈
Sleep Tea time.
Let's hope I can dodge the rain tomorrow..
