Putting My Hands Up For The Friday Feeling!

When I finally met Mr Right, I had no idea his first name was 'Always' - Rita Rudner.
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling 🎈
Nice big hug to start Friday!
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
Gives hubby a nice sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left.
I parks in the hall car park, I see a Doctor walk across the car park. It's Booster Jabs today instead of Sunday.
(As the High Street is shut for Rememberance Sunday)
I got back into Sexy Beast and parked in the other car park.
No gloves needed.
Puts on my lights.
Let's get it on...🍭
Oh dear, having people doing emergency stops as they are going too fast! 
One red van went under my stick.
BOING BOING time!
One Audi car done a emergency stop on the other side of the road. I had a Driving Instructor on my side, just shook his head when he saw it.
At least I finished in one piece!
Now to visit Morrisons...
While I was in, I bumped into my friend I talk to before I do my afternoon shift. Then one of my good friends was in there as well and we all had a good chat with our facemasks on!
I said goodbye and carried on shopping.
I noticed the CD which I bought and should be coming today.
Once paid for my shopping.
I went and got the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
The Naughty Elf was after the beer already!
Nice to enjoy a cup of coffee.
Puts the shopping away afterwards.
Time for early lunch.
My CD has arrived!
Be listening to it on the way to work.
Speaking of work.
Time for part 2.
I parked around the corner, as the Hall Car Park was rammed.
No gloves were not needed.
I turned on my lights.
Then off to have a rabbit with my friends.
Wished everyone a good weekend.
Now to get on with the last shift of the week.
Oh dear it's carrying on from this morning.
One car stopped at the last minute, nearly running a parent over and nearly driving into my stick that was in the middle of the road!
At least I finished in one piece!
Home Time.
Time for a much needed brew!
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ when he comes home.
Tea is ready.
I publishes the blog post.
Has a quick look in today's newspaper.
Brian Hyland  is an American pop singer and instrumentalist who was particularly successful during the early 1960s. He continued recording into the 1970s.

Although his status as a teen idol faded, he went on to release several country-influenced albums and had additional chart hits later in his career. 
He is 78 years old 🎈
Booker Taliaferro Jones Jr. is an American multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, record producer and arranger, best known as the frontman of the band Booker T. & the M.G.'s.
