Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🍿
Hug with a brew!
Hubby went out to clear his car of snow...
I gave him a big sloppy 💋 before he left.
I got the kids up to do their on-line learning.
I meanwhile got on writing my blog post from yesterday.
Before I did my Jukebox on Twitter.
Time to get the newspaper..
Still cold!
I chats with the woman in the Newsagent.I told her I didn't get the LTS job,but I have another interview tonight.She wished me luck for that one.
Back home.
Now for a much needed coffee!
Look in the newspaper
 Dame Shirley  Bassey, DBE  is a Welsh singer, whose career began in 1953, well known for her expressive voice and for recording the soundtrack theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979). In January 1959, Bassey became the first Welsh person to gain a No. 1 single. In 2000, Bassey was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to the performing arts. In 1977 she received the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist in the previous 25 years. Bassey is one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain.
She is 84 years old 🎈 

Peter Sarstedt, briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was a British singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive Sarstedt.
Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969. Set to a "faux European waltz tune" and described as "a romantic novel in song", it won an Ivor Novello Award. The record remained Sarstedt's biggest hit, despite his releasing numerous successful albums and singles from the late 1960s onward.
He died on this day in 2017 aged 75. 
Michael  Apted, CMG was a British director, producer, writer and actor. One of the most prolific English film directors of his generation, he is known for directing: the Up series (1964–), the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough (1999), and the American film Coal Miner's Daughter (1980); the latter being nominated for seven Academy Awards, including for the Best Picture. He also directed Nell (1994), which received three Golden Globe Award nominations and one Academy Award nomination, and the critically-acclaimed films Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and Enigma (2001). 
He died on the 7th January 2021 aged 79.

One mini-van had a choice.
Either stop or have his windscreen smashed by my stick.
He chose to stop.
Once finished, I went home.
 Liquid refreshment with vitamin C.
Quick dash of housework.
Light lunch...
Back out for a little ride...
 The rain's back!

 One of the teachers commented on what kids say...
I told her the story, when one of my sons was about six years old and on a Police Open Day at our local Police Station. He pointed to a pair of handcuffs on a Policeman and said:
"My mum has a pair of those too!"
I smiled and the Policeman smiled back!
I had a lovely red face when I got back to my car. 
More good music to sing along to..
 Back home for a nibble with coffee↓
