Watch Out For That Sun!

 Pissing in his shoe keeps no man warm for long 
- Icelandic proverb.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐪
I had a nice warm hug :)
Brew with Breakfast.
The thermal vest and many layers went on.
Good job I covered up Sexy Beast last night!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋
Now to leave the warm house...
It's freezing!
On goes two winter hats, big winter gloves.
Now to walk up and turn on my lights.
Turns on my lights.
Now to walk on back down the road to my spot.
It's cold and frosty.
Two cars had to perform emergancy stops!
Three cars go straight under my stick like limbo dancers!
It doesn't help when car drivers don't scrape the car before they sat off...
Tank drivers I call them!
One woman I talk to was saying where her son is , in South Korea, it's -15c!
I laughed, and replied: 
"I won't never moan about -2c again!"
I survived the morning!
I move Sexy Beast.
I post the letter to my Prison Inmate in the USA.
Then it's into the Co-op...
Plenty of reduced veg to make soup with this week!
The self-service till kept going off with all the reduced items I had bought!
Then onto get my newspaper and next door's magazine.
Now home:
Coffee machine goes on.
Unpacks the shopping.
Now to get tonight's tea ready.
Pork Chops pan fried.
Stuffing added to them.
Put in oven ready for later.
All the vegetables put in their saucepans.
Now I need that coffee!
I wrote yesterday's blog post all the way to dinnertime.
Now to reheat the soup we made last night.
Sweet Potato, Carrots, Onions and Parsnip.
The sun was out, and that normally means low lying sun!
Big Big Sunglasses go on.
Two winter hats and gloves go on.
The low lying sun is back!
I turn on my lights.
Now for a little rabbit with my friends!
When it was time to start.
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now for the fun to start!
One grey car that never stops, kept going again under my stick it went!
A green car done the same.
My friend returned with his dog for the last 10 minutes.
The red car from Monday returned, and kept going under my stick again, and then turned left further up the road! 
At least I finished in one piece.
My friend, his dog and me went back to my car.
While chatting, we noticed something up in the sky!
I said to my friend:
"They finally found us!"
He laughed.
He said goodbye, and walked home with his dog.
Home time for me.
I covered up Sexy Beast.
Put the bins out for tomorrow.
Put the tea on.
Now to carry on watching a good film, I missed yesterday.
Cup of brew time.
Time to dish up the tea!
Yum Yum!
4 empty plates afterwards.
Time to look into today's newspaper.
John William "Long John" Baldry  was an English-Canadian blues singer, musician and voice actor. In the 1960s, he was one of the first British vocalists to sing the blues in clubs and shared the stage with many British musicians including the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Before achieving stardom, Rod Stewart and Elton John were members of bands led by Baldry. He enjoyed pop success in 1967 when "Let the Heartaches Begin" reached No. 1 in the UK, and in Australia where his duet with Kathi McDonald "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" reached No. 2 in 1980. 
He would have been 81 years old.🎈
He sadly died aged 64 in 2005.
Randy VanWarmer (also written as Vanwarmer, Van Warmer) was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. His biggest success was the pop hit, "Just When I Needed You Most". It reached No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart in September 1979 after peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks earlier that year. 
He died on this day aged 48 in 2004. 
Barbra Streisand was #1 on the Billboard Easy Listening singles chart with the song, 'The Way We Were' in 1974.
Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes was the #1 song on the Billboard charts today in 1980.
I went for a hot shower, and left hubby watching his Tales of The Unexpected boxset.
Now to settle down to watch the news and the newspaper review.
Sleep Tea Time.
Now to enjoy some warm hump 🐪

Stripping Off The Layers!

Have you ever noticed that wrong numbers are never engaged? - Steven Wright.
Welcome to my Tuesday 🏁
Big hug to start the day with \o/
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest going on, as well as lots of layers.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I leave.
Two winter hats, and winter gloves went on.
I put on my lights.
Now to walk down the road to my spot!
I did a few BOINGS as a few car drivers were not stopping.
It was getting well warm where I was stopping.
One winter hat had to come, followed by the gloves. Even unzipped my coat, I was getting well warm!
The woman that mouthed "ARSEHOLE" at me last year, went past me, and I gave her a glare!
I finished in one piece!
I got the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Amazon sent me a deal.
Not much of a deal I thought...
Lightning Deal = £6.79
Non- Deal = £4.99 
Then got changed into the Pink Lyrca, ready for some spinning on my bike.
Great film to watch while I spin.
I was getting into 10 minutes, when my phone went.
It was next door, he needed help.
I went round with my younger son.
He was sat on his portible loo and had no toilet roll nearby. Handed him some.
We were have difficulty trying to get him back to his living room.
I tried shouting his son to come downstairs to help.
After two hours of sorting out the neighbour, the son appeared, all dressed, and kept saying,
"I'm not his carer!"
The situation didn't help it was bring memories of my dad being in that way, only 2 years ago.
We left, as son has to get ready to go to Sixth Form.
I needed a coffee by this time.
I had to get changed out of my Pink Lyrca, and put my Spin Bike away, as I had run of time!
I warmed up the soup for lunch.
Now to go out for part two.
I put one winter hat, and some lightweight gloves, as it is still cold!
I puts on my lights.
One friend is attending a Funeral today.
My other friend, and we had a good yak!
No sign of no low lying sun!
I said goodbye to my friend.
Now to start 🍭
Most car were stopping.
One car behind me was revving his engine up.
I wasn't being hurried to cross over the road.
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
On the way home, there had been a two car smash, so I had to go around by the Household tip.
I covered up Sexy Beast.
As it was going to be cold tonight.
I checked my mail, and got another response from a Prisoner in the USA.
In fact he couldn't believe I wrote to him, and he wrote two letters to me!
I will write the reply later.
I got on making a Leek & Goat Tart for tea.
Inbetween doing that, I was trying to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
Hubby came back and had a nice wet 💋
Dished up the tart.
It was yummy.
Finished off writing my blog post.
Now to look in to today's newspaper.
