We pick up the newspapers on the way.
First we nipped into the garden centre for some bargains.
Lots of Nutcrackers soldiers in the sale.
Hubby got two small ones off a display.
One customer gave my hubby a look for doing it.
Next stop was the Co-op to get some bits.
The Easter eggs are coming out now↓
Now back home to unpack everything.
Coffee time.
Ex-plum came to visit his kids.
His wife did some really nice crochet items for me.
Found a place for the little santa hats.
Once Ex-plum dropped of our kids, he left with 2 pieces of Christmas cake and a Christmas card.
Time to hit Sainsburys!
Got some more bits, including things for next year's Christmas Cake.
Back home to unpack.

Soon after I had hot shower.

Welcome aboard my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
Nice big stretch for Monday.....\o/
Warm hug followed.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on...
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I leave.
Moon was out...still!
Covid-19 Booster Jabs were been given out in the hall. So I parked around the corner.
Another moon picture...
The sun was coming up as well!
Two hats and warm gloves went on.
I put on my lights...
Now let's go to work....🍭
I was well warm under my coat...
Party going on under it!
The sun was out, blue skies...
And I forgot to put on my big big sunglasses..
Some car drivers were in a rush on the opposite side of the road not to stop.
One woman in a red car just looked at me as she drove past!
I survived the Monday morning \o/
Followed a Land Rover Discovery to the island.
It didn't stop, and barged itself around the island nearly crashing into another car coming round!
I nipped into Wickes for my order.
Then I collected my newspaper.
Back home...
The coffee machine goes on.
I get changed into my exercise gear.
Now a bit of rowing for a Monday!
Backwards and forewards for 20 minutes!
Out comes the Spin Bike next.
10 minutes of watching Ronin,
Enough of that!
Gets changed.
Coffee time!
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
All the way to lunch!
Now for part 2.

Parks around the corner.
One winter hat and a pair of gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Oh dear the low lying sun...
I has a good rabbit with my two friends.
I say goodbye to them.
Right here we go on round 2.
One big car parked in the Keep Clear on the otherside of the road.
The parents and children couldn't get to the pavement she was parked in the way.She was given lots of death stares by the parents until she managed to move forward!
I finished in one piece.
I put my lollystick in Sexy Beast.
I had a parent in the car next door watching me doing it, and then said to me when she got out the car,
"We wondered how you was going to put that stick in your car!"
"There are 3 versions, one full one, one with metal in the middle, or a plastic middle.
I prefer the full one!" I replied.
Back home.
Sexy Beast gets covered up.
Now for a much needed cup of tea!
We had our tea early.
My nice meat free stir fry.
The Tiler came and did a bit more.
He is coming the weekend to finish it off.
Quick look in the today's newspaper.
Tom  Conti  is a Scottish actor, theatre director, and novelist. He won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in 1979 for his performance in Whose Life Is It Anyway? and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1983 film Reuben, Reuben
He is 80 years old 🎈 
Mae West (born Mary Jane West) was an American stage and film actress, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned over seven decades. She was known for her breezy sexual independence, and her lighthearted bawdy double entendres, often delivered in a husky contralto voice. She was active in vaudeville and on stage in New York City before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry.
West was one of the most controversial movie stars of her day; she encountered problems especially with censorship. She once quipped, "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." She bucked the system by making comedy out of conventional mores, and the Depression-era audience admired her for it. When her film career ended, she wrote books and plays, and continued to perform in Las Vegas and the United Kingdom, on radio and television, and recorded rock 'n roll albums. In 1999, the American Film Institute posthumously voted West the 15th greatest female screen legend of classic American cinema. 
She died on this day in 1980 aged 87. 
Sleep tea time.
I found a job I was doing earlier in the year been advertised again.
It's gone up by £1!
I sent my CV. I won't get a reply as I am deemed a trouble maker for wanting my emergency tax repaid back to me.They held on to it for two months, after I mentioned ACAS, they repaid it back in the third month!
At least they looked at my CV ;)
Hubby was practising his snooker.
He won 2 and lost 2.
I was sound asleep when he came back...
Night Night

I give hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he goes to work.
We soon follow out of the door.
Gets the newspaper on the way. 
One son wanted me to go in with him while he has jab.
The woman on the door, say:
"His brother can go with him the same time as his jab."
"That's good, I won't hear the screams from my car,"I replied walking back to Sexy Beast.
"So we have to hear them then?"She replied.
A good 20 minutes they came out. Sore arms, but everything was fine.
Back home for a much needed coffee.
Does a bit of housework.
Now to plan for tonight's evening meal.
I need mushrooms and garlic!
