I only put one winter hat on, with gloves.
I put on the lights.
Now for some fun for a Monday 🍭
Parents and children were glad I was back.
Some asked if I had good holiday?
I replied,"I had Covid, and it's wasn't nice!"
One great big lorry saw at me at he was coming up the road, and my big stick was out, totally ignored me and stick and kept going.
Another van just put up his hand as he went past!
It was nice to be missed!
I was getting well warm, off went gloves and scarf!
Finished in one piece.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
Coffee machine went on.
Now to load up the dishwasher.

Those sun's rays were so lovely!
I said goodbye to my friends.
Now to enjoy some fun 🍭
Some parents who I didn't see in the morning, asked how the holiday went?
"No holiday, I had Covid!"I replied.
It looked like a lot of people have had Covid and some suffered more than others.
I finished in one piece.
Back home for a much needed lolly!
Now for a early Meat Free Stir Fry.
Yum.
Now to look in today's newspaper.
Sir Peter  Ustinov CBE FRSA (born Peter Alexander Freiherr von Ustinov) was a British actor, filmmaker and writer. As an internationally known raconteur, he was a fixture on television talk shows and lecture circuits for much of his career. An intellectual and diplomat, he held various academic posts and served as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and president of the World Federalist Movement.
Ustinov was the winner of numerous awards during his life, including two Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor, Emmy Awards, Golden Globes, and BAFTA Awards for acting, and a Grammy Award for best recording for children, as well as the recipient of governmental honours from, amongst others, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. He also displayed a unique cultural versatility which frequently earned him the accolade of a Renaissance man.

Only Got A Tiny One!

If you are bored with your present enemies and want to make some new ones, tell two of your women friends that they look alike - Mignon McLaughlin 
Welcome to my Sunday! 🚋
We had a bit of lie-in after last night's fun...
Warm hug with brew followed.
Breakfast..
Dressed..
I am in need of a caffeine boost!
Now out for a little ride in Sexy Beast.
First to check the tyres pressures...
Then to put the pinks back on...
Dropped off two more bags of clothes in the clothes bank at Sainsburys.
Then to say hello to mum and dad.
Back home to pick up the shopping list for Lidl.
There was a good book for sale in there.
Hubby said hi to the sales assistant on the till as he hasn't seen him in a while.
It turns out, the sales assistant was recovering from a car accident for the last 5 months.
We nipped into Home Bargains.
Then onto the small branch of Waitrose.
There was loads of reduced food.
I only got what I needed.
The Sales Assistant asked:
 "Why I was buying a copy of the weekend's I newspaper?"
"Because I didn't buy it yesterday."
He rolled his eyes.
Because I spent over £10 I could get a free newspaper, they had sold out the Sunday Times, so I had another newspaper.
Loaded up the shopping into the car and off home we went.
Once the shopping was put away.
We caught up on the jobs that needed doing.
I put the evening tea in the oven to cook.
Hubby went to vacuum and get his car cleaned.
(It might move a bit quicker now!)
Tea is ready!
Now to catch up with 3 newspapers I bought today!

I might have a tiny hoard,
 but at least I don't have to climb over something to get out of the front door!
We have 4 episodes of Top of the Pops from 1991 to catch up with....
I will find time tomorrow to watch them....
(It won't take too long....)
Off to bed a lot earlier than last night...
As someone is back on their Wobbly Work Wheel tomorrow and it's not me! 🎡
