 ”Let's be naughty and save Santa the trip." — Gary Allan
Welcome to my Thursday Madness from the Sun 🌞
It was so cold....brrrrrr
We huddied under the duvet to do today Heardles
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
In need of some warm breakfast and brew!
Thermal vest and lots of layers went on.
Time to leave the house.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ before I left.
Two winter hats, winter gloves and my winter coat was done up.
I went to get then newspaper, and they didn't have it in :(
I got my big stick.
Now to put on my lights.
Let's go to work!
Oh dear, the tank drivers are in force!
One van driver went past me,
One small hole for him to see out of, and another hole for the passenger to see out of. The passenger side window, you couldn't see out of.
I didn't feel the cold, but everyone did.
I had more presents.
Lots of BOINGs given out for those drivers on the otherside of the road who failed to stop!
Lots of last minute braking again.
I finished in one piece.
Swapped big coat for my Teddy coat.
Now off to Morrisons.
I got my newspaper and brought some things for presents as well.
Back home
The coffee machine wasn't working again.
Tried giving a good clear out.
Nothing happened :(
I made myself a normal coffee.
I looked on-line for another coffee maker.
Not too cheap and not too expensive!
Sorted out the presents into bags for wrapping up on Monday.
After a second cup of coffee.
Time for a liquid lunch.
Now off to do the afternoon shift.
On goes one Winter hat, winter gloves and winter coat.
I turn on my lights.
Met up with my friends for a quick rabbit.
One more day to go....
I said goodbye to my friends.
The low lying sun is causing more problems!
BOING, BOING, BOING I went as the cars were failing to stop under my big stick!
Last minute braking was also a issue as well.
Finished in one piece!
Time to warm up with a brew.
I had to do a early tea, as my hubby is going to watch our eldest receive an award tonight.
Hubby had a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ when he came back.
Nice Pasta tea.
Gave both a sloppy tea when they both left.
My oldest son got the Warner Maths Prize.

 So glad of the layers I am wearing under my coat to keep the cold out!
So giving out BOINGs for those failing to stop as well!
Was given a lovely present with a card :)
Was so glad to finish in one piece!

"See you all tomorrow!"
Only 2 days left.
Low lying sun was causing a lot of problems.

If they slowed down and put their visor down, they probably could see my big stick!
One had to brake suddenly when she tried her luck of trying to going under my stick!
