Welcome Back!

 Better the chill blast of winter than the hot breath of a pursuing elephant - Chinese Proverb
Welcome to the start of November🌟
Nice warm hug to start off Monday.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on....
Dressed.
Back on the Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
I didn't park in my normal place as the Covid-19 Boosters are being given out.
4 layers of clothing under my winter coat.
The big big sunglasses are still being worn...
Now to put on my lights...
Let's do this...🍭
Everyone was glad I was back!
Now for the fun to start...
I had my stick raised, one red Mini came out of the Parish Hall Car Park, then straight under my stick....
A grey BMW was speeding down the road, suddenly had to find his brake pedal as I lowered the stick down!
I had my stick out, and one car on the otherside, didn't stop and carried on speeding up the road!
I survived until the afternoon shift!
I picks up the newspaper on the way home.
On goes the coffee machine.
Unloads the dishwasher.
Gets Spin Bike out.
Now for some Heat!
Did the Spin,
Cools down.
Now for some coffee..
Then I writes yesterday's blog post.
Lunchtime.
I ask Alexa,"If it's going to rain this afternoon?"
She said, "Just clouds..!"
Now for round 2.
It was still cold and I didn't like the look of the dark clouds that was gathering...
I put on my winter coat.
I goes and puts on my lights then I just have to rabbit to two people like you do!
I said goodbye to them and got chatted to another friend.
Then I felt spots of rain...
Great!
As soon as I started my job the rain came down!
Stopped, carried on 20 minutes, stopped.
In the meantime cars were going under my stick as if I wasn't there!
As soon as I put my stick in Sexy Beast it started to rain, and carried on until I got home. 
Nice to have a brew when I got in.
My new watch arrived.
I did a early meat free stir fry.
(Ate it before I could take a photo).
Carried on watching Heat.
I finally got to watch all 2 hours and 55 minutes of it \o/
The next film I wanted to watch wasn't on Netflix or Prime Video.
I will have to dig out the DVD of it out for Wednesday...
The film I want is:
Next film I watched was:
Hubby lost at snooker, and his team lost 4-1.
I said to him, "That snooker cue is going to start our bonfire next weekend!"
He didn't find that funny!
I had a quick look in the newspaper...

"Titanic" directed by James Cameron, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet premieres at the Tokyo International Film Festival (Academy Awards Best Picture 1998) in 1997.
Now for some Sleep Tea.
I kept the bed warm for when Hubby came home.
The way the temperatures are dropping,
The Thermals knickers be back on tomorrow!
