Soggy Glove Time!

A dress has no meaning unless it makes a man want to take it off - Francoise Sagan.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start the Hump with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
(Several layers!)
I gives hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before I leave.
It's the first of December. 
Santa Hat month!
On goes 2 winter hats and gloves.
Turns on my lights.
Now's let go to work...🍭
I was walking to my spot, when two High School teenagers were trying to cross over the road.
No cars would stop.
I got to my spot, and lifted my stick in the air.
The traffic stopped!
Perhaps this will carry on....
And it did.
Not one car went under my stick, all stopped!
It must be the sun's rays doing something!
I finished in one piece.
I nipped into Co-op.
I had no problems like last week.
Then I got the newspaper and next door's magazine.
Back home.
I put up my Advent Calender.
The first tea is:
My friend came to enjoy coffee, cake and yak.
We had a good chat, and waved goodbye.
She came back 5 minutes later as she forgot to get the peas I had put in my freezer.
I needed something hot for my lunch.
That's better!
There were some dark clouds, but I didn't think I would need to wear those sexy lumo trousers.
To play safe, I put on my boots, with 2 winter hats and gloves.
I put on my lights and walked back for a yak with my 2 friends.
One offered me a mince pie.
I said no.
The other friend offered me a doughnut.
I had to say no.
I laughed and said:
"I don't want the 5th chin returning thanks!"
 Then I saw the dark cloud...
10 minutes before I was due to start,
The rain started.
We got under some shelter before I was due to start.
Once it was time, I said goodbye to my friends.
The rain kept coming.
All the car drivers going past looked at me getting wet.
Getting soggy gloves by the minute!
At least the car drivers were stopping for me.
The rain stopped just before I finished.
Hometime.
On the way home, one car behind for half a mile didn't put on his headlights on until the car behind him kept flashing him.
Then he decided to sit on my arse the rest of the way!
I was glad to get home.
It had started to rain again.
I still covered up Sexy Beast, as the temperatures were going to fall during the early hours and a frost was due!
My kids then told me about the fun of the Sixth Form Quiz they both entered.
The younger son had got all the Christmas Songs and the artists, but the teacher wouldn't accept them as his team won the previous round.
I was proud of them both for all of their answers to the questions.
(I am glad I keep playing Christmas songs in the house!)
 Hot Chocolate time!
I put the tea in the oven.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ when he came home.
Tea was dished up.
Posted blog post.
Now for a little look in today's newspaper.
Matt Monro (born Terence Edward Parsons)  was an English singer who became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the 1950s and 1970s. Known as The Man with the Golden Voice, he filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums across the world in his 30-year career. AllMusic has described Monro as "one of the most underrated pop vocalists of the '60s", who "possessed the easiest, most perfect baritone in the business". His recordings include the UK Top 10 hits: "Portrait of My Love", "My Kind of Girl", "Softly As I Leave You", "Walk Away" and "Yesterday" (originally by The Beatles). He also recorded several film themes such as "From Russia with Love" for the James Bond film of the same name, "Born Free" for the film of the same name and "On Days Like These" for The Italian Job
He would have been 91 years old 🎈
He sadly died aged 54 in 1985. 
While hubby did his working out on the abs machine, and had a shower.
I carried on reading the book about the filming of The Godfather. 
Sleep Tea Time.
Another 100 pages read.
Only hoping the sunshine will be back tomorrow.
Soggy gloves had just about dried out......

What's That Dropping Down My Leg????

If anything can go wrong, it will - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Tuesday πŸ™ˆ
Really nice warm hug to start Tuesday with.
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I left the house.
The hall car park wasn't open, so I parked around the corner.
2 winter hats were put on, as well at gloves.
It was a cold one.
Turns on my lights.
Time to Rock 'n' Roll...🍭
Some cars were in a hurry, so they didn't stop!
I felt something sliding down by body,
I got back to the pavement just in time!
It fell down by my feet...
Not knickers, or leggings...
But my Bum Bag!
I left it on the gatepost until I finished.
At least I finished in one piece!
I gets my newspaper on the way to the coffee date.
I met my friend for coffee, chat, and nibble.
Couldn't find where you can get toast on the screen.
In the end we went to the Cashier.
I paid for an Americano coffee.
It wasn't on the machine.
I was told to press the Black coffee and then add milk!!!!!
Trouble is they only had semi-skimmed milk!
So I had to go into the supermarket and buy a pint of full fat milk!
The whole time I had taken to get it, buy it and get back to the cafe, I had sung very loud  along with:
Now to get on drinking my "Coffee" and eating my toast!
I needed another coffee after I finished that one.
So I had to get the black coffee and add my milk and enjoy the "Americano" coffee.
Soon as finished, said goodbye to my friend.
One car nearly hit me in the car park, he left it at the last minute to brake.
Didn't I shoot him a look!
Back home in one piece!
It was a bit late to put on my coffee machine.
So I had some ground coffee instead.
After reading my emails, and I ran out of time to go on my spin bike.
Early lunch time!
Now I have my mobile phone playing up!
Great!
Now for part 2.
Winter hat and gloves on.
I put on my lights. 
I only have one friend to chat to up to the start of the afternoon shift.
I wish her a good time at her work.
Now for me to start at mine.
Some stopped the last minute, some just carried on.
At least I finished in one piece.
My other friend arrived and we had a chat by my Sexy Beast.
He had dropped off his car this morning to be MOT. He went to collect it in the afternoon, while walking into the garage forecort, he sort someone has swept up bit of red plastic bumper and windscreen glass into a pile.
He found out who it belonged to, as parked next to his car, was a red one, with the bumper pushed into the car and the back window glass was missing.
We carried on talking until 4.10pm.
It was getting dark by now.
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow.
Then the fun starts...
Stuck behind a RAC van doing 20 m.p.h  and no chance of overtaking it!
Glad to get home after that!
I covered up Sexy Beast.
I got on with making the tea for tonight.
I ran out of time to write yesterday's blog.
Just as got a far as uploading the photos from yesterday.
I updated my CV on the on-line site I go for jobs on.
My Advent calender arrived...
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Time for the veggie option.
It was lovely!
Quick read of the newspaper afterwards.
The Beatles release single "I Feel Fine" & "She's a Woman" in 1964.
George Harrison releases "My Sweet Lord" in the USA in 1970.
Sleep Tea Time.
Going to bed early after the day I have had!
Night Night x
