Popcorn Friday!

When a man is wrapped up in himself, he makes a pretty small package - John Ruskin
Woo Hoo it's back!
Nice warm hug with brew.
Now for more Christmas wear....
The lumo trousers had to go on, as it was forecasting rain once again.
Dark and cold.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I left.
No sign of any rain just yet, just freezing cold.
It started to get light after 8.20!
No rain at all \o/
Finished in one piece.
Back home.
Much needed coffee!
A warmer Santa hat is needed...
Back out in Sexy Beast.
More singing along to do...
Looks in the newspaper before I go in.
Mmmm I don't see any of my favourites in↓
Looks across the fields of fun..
I go in with another homemade mask.
After I finished.
Back in the Sexy Beast.
I listen to what the year is...
Oh dear, there is some crap being played.
Here is my ideal tunes from that year.... 
Speaking of this year.
I have four episodes of  Top Of The Pops to catch up with tomorrow!
Back home.
Lunch time...
The rent arrears were sorted out \o/
That made my day!
The lumo trousers were put back on again.
Back out for the final time this week.
At least the rain kept off at least!
A few Land Rovers were failing to stop.
My friend turned up after I finished to collect the local Advertiser,as Warwichshire is in tier 3 and not allowed to travel into Redditch.
He likes the same music I like.
I showed him the new music I have got to listen in Sexy Beast.
Then the rain came down.
Said goodbye to my friend.
Back home in the dark and rain.
Put the tea in the oven.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Tea time.
We finally finished Season 12 of Hell's Kitchen.
Scott won↓
I much preferred Jason↓
We had one more episode of Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen to watch.
There is boxset we are going to watch over the weekend, going to stretch it over Sat and Sun.
 Historical drama adapted from the BBC TV series.It was the main actor's Birthday this week.....
Sleep Tea time!
The weekend is nearly here \o/.
