Doing The Limbo Dance!

A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money - W.C Fields
Welcome aboard to my Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑
Nice hug to start Monday with!
Brew with Breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Dressed in a Christmas themed dress.
Gives hubby a slowly wet πŸ’‹
Boosters were being giving out in the hall.
I parked around the corner.
Swaps my Santa hat for 2 winter hats with a pair of gloves. I was umming about whether to put on my boots, as the rain was forecasted to come in at 10am.
I didn't bother with the boots.
I put on my lights.
Now let's go to work....
Half way through my shift, the rain came to visit!
A blue 20 plate Skoda went past me,
Was it the same one that mounted the kerb and drove around me a few months ago????
Still some parents are choosing to cross over the road further up from me instead of crossing with me. Once they drop the child at school, they cross with me!
It was still raining when I finished.
I changed coats and walked down the road to the Post Office.
There were two on the tills in the Post Office.
While I was waiting with steamed up glasses, the middle cashier said to the customer she was serving:
"I lost my dad four weeks ago and still suffering."
The customer said,"Sorry to hear about it."
Then it was my turn to be served.
She asked "If I had heard anything from the Death Row Prisoners I had wrote to?"
"Not yet, fingers crossed,"I replied.
Now back to the car in the rain.
I picked up the newspaper on the way home.
I put on the coffee machine.
Got changed.
Now to use and abuse the Abs machine.
I did about 55 ab crunches.
I had a good workout for 20 minutes.
Now out comes the Spinning Bike.
I did another 15 minutes workout.
Bike went back in the Dining room.
Coffee time.
I carried on watching two episodes of 
I am a Killer on Netflix.
Killer in the Eyes of the Law:
Kenneth Foster's death sentence is commuted just hours before his execution, but he asserts that his punishment under an unusual Texas law is unfair.
Fritz Fryer was the  lead guitarist of the Four Pennies, (born David  Fryer in  Oldham, Lancashire)  He was a grandson of the noted pianist and teacher Herbert Fryer.
He would have been 77 years old 🎈
He sadly  died on 2 September 2007, in Lisbon, Portugal, from pancreatic cancer.
Roy  Orbison  was an American singer, songwriter, and musician known for his impassioned singing style, complex song structures, and dark, emotional ballads. His music was described by critics as operatic, earning him the nicknames "the Caruso of Rock" and "the Big O." Many of Orbison's songs conveyed vulnerability at a time when most male rock-and-roll performers chose to project defiant masculinity. He performed while standing motionless and wearing black clothes to match his dyed black hair and dark sunglasses, which he wore to counter his shyness and stage fright.
He sadly died on this day in 1988 aged 52
Sleep Tea Time
There is another storm coming in tomorrow.
Those sexy lumo trousers will be worn...

Disco Time!

There are two types of people; those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am," and those who walk into a room and say, "Ah, there you are!". - Frederick Collins
Welcome to my SundayπŸ’‹
After the late night we had.
We had a bit of lie-in.
Nice brew in bed with a warm hug.
We just lay in bed listening to the radio.
Loud knock on the front door.
It was my next door neighbour.
He was locked out.
Good job his son gave me a spare key!
Now to get dressed!
First a warm coffee to wake the brain.
Then out for a little ride.
We got the newspaper.
Then to test hubby's air pressure of his tyres.
The electrics were playing up on his car....
Spooky time πŸ‘» 
Gets back home.
I use up some shortcrust pastry and a jar of mincemeat. 
Blind baked the pastry.
Let it cool down.
Added the filling and back in the oven it goes.
