I don't want to sound paranoid, but that electronic line judge knows who I am - John McEnroe.
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ’«
Still tossing and turning during the night :(
Had a nice brew with Breakfast later on.
No wet sloppy one or warm hug for hubby just yet.

Trying Not To Slip & Slide!

It's the good girls keep diraries. The bad girls never have the time - Tallulah Bankhead
Welcome aboard to a very cold Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
Lots of layers on top of the thermal vest.
I gives hubby his sloppy wet πŸ’‹ 
Very icy, and cold outside.
I parks in the car park around the corner.
As the Covid-19 Boosters are in the hall.
2 winter hats go on with gloves, and boots.
The Christmas Santa has now returned!
Now let's go to work.
Car drivers were going a lot slower than normal because of the ice on the roads.
I hope where I stand in the afternoon, defrosts, as it is slippy as hell on that side of the road.
Everyone commenting on how cold it is this morning. It was -2.5c when I started this morning.
Few car drivers kept going and not stopping on the otherside of the road.
At least I finished in one piece.
I was careful going back to Sexy Beast.
I got changed and just about to walk down to the Post Office, when I forgot my facemask.Back to the car to fetch that.
I was careful going down the hill. Gets my letters weighed and gets asks if I know these people I have wrote a letter too.
"Nope, not yet, as they are on Death Row in America, I won't get to meet them personally either."
She was fascinated about it.
I told her about the series on Netflix about people being on Death Row. 
I found a website that you can write to inmates  on Death Row. So I did!
The queue was getting longer in the Post Office, so I finished my conversation and said goodbye once I paid the postage.
I just about got up the hill, but nearly slipped over in the car park near my car.
Gets off my boots.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Puts on the coffee machine.
I moved the things around in the bathroom to create more room in there!
Put the recycling out, and fetch some bread to the birds.
I had my minor workout after that!
Coffee is now needed.
I had to chase up Amazon up as they charged me full price for two Amazon echos instead of £29.99, I even put the discount code in.
I will have to wait for them to be delivered next week to get the refund!
I write yesterday's blog all the way to lunchtime!
Now for part two.
Nice little tune on repeat on the way to work.
Managed to park in the car park of the old Health Centre.
I gets gloves and 2 winter hats and walks up to put on my lights.
Has a good rabbit with my two friends before I start my afternoon shift.
Now to start.
One parent commented he nearly slipped over on the pavement before I crossed him back over this morning.
I'm glad the ice has now been defrosted on the pavement.
One parent I was talking to, was saying she went out for meal with 3 others on Saturday at a nearly pub. The cost was for three courses each, wine etc...... The amount was £280!
I pointed out I don't drink alcohol, I normally drink lemonade, but go dangerous and have lime added to it!
I wished her a happy Birthday for tomorrow.
Finished in one piece.
Hometime.
When I got home, the younger son had got all the boxes of Christmas decorations out from the loft.
He has put all a Christmas Tree in his room.
Hubby is at snooker tonight, and won't be putting up the decorations in the house until tomorrow night. The boxes went back up in the loft.
Someone was kept downstairs mind.
In need of a  strong brew...
Out comes the new wok we bought Saturday.
Meat Free Stir-Fry time.
Quick look in the newspaper.

I took my sleep tea up to bed.
As I have a good book to read about the Godfather film.
Hubby comes back from snooker.
He loses his game and his team loses 4-1.
I told him to take a break next season, and just practice with his snooker pal on a a Monday Night to try get his snooker Mojo back!
The warmth and the sun is back tomorrow, going up to 12c!
A few layers of clothing will be removed tomorrow!

Inbetween writing them, I was trying to find a sewing pattern to make a family of seahorses that was in one of magazines that came last week!
It didn't help the pattern wasn't on the magazine's website.....
GREAT!
I had the letter finally sealing my departure from my dinnertime job \o/

I'm sure another job will surface to replace it and it won't affect my stress level!
