The Last One Of 2022!

 “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph.” — Shirley Temple
Welcome to my Friday Feeling ๐ŸŽˆ
We got up early, it still being cold, 
We did today Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Thermal vest and layers went on.
Now to uncover the Sexy Beast. 
Still freezing cold!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹
Trying to park Sexy Beast was fun.
The normal car park wasn't open, there was one parking space left in the car park opposite. One car was trying to reverse out, so I did a 3 point turn to let her out, so then I went back up the road and did another 3 point turn to come back down the road, however she parked on the side of the road with her back door of the her car open and I couldn't get past it!
She begrudgingly shut the back door for me to past!
I parked up, got on my Winter coat, gloves and two hats and went to get my newspaper!
Comes back and the gates to the car park are open.
Moves Sexy Beast into the car park. 
I picks up my big stick and goes and turns on my lights.
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get to work...
Here we go again.
The first child I tried to cross the road, the car drove straight under my stick.
Boing for him.
The following van tried to tell me with his hands for me to take my big stick out of the way of his van!
Boing he had for that as well.
Lots of tanks as well!
On a postive note, I was given lots of presents, cards and kind words.
Lots of last minute braking to cope with!
At least I finshed in one piece!
Back to Sexy Beast I go. 
Back home I go.
The coffee machine has given up the ghost :(
Back to normal coffee for now :(
Soup maker goes on.
I write one blog post up until the light lunch.
Now to do the last day of work!
On goes the Winter coat, winter gloves and two hats.
Oh dear, we have the low lying sun back again.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with one friend. My other friend arrived 10 minutes later.
Rabbit time.
I wished my friends a Happy Christmas and Happy New Year.
Now to survive the low lying sun.
Told one parent to be careful not fall over the bag of presents that was at the top of the stairs.
They said, "I was special!"
One white car just drove under my stick at 5 m.p.h!
One BMW driver on the otherside just looked at me as it drove straight under my stick!
One nice parent gave me a present and thanked me for doing a good job :)
I wished the parents and children a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!
Finished in one piece.
Goes back to Sexy Beast. 
For the last time 2022.
Back home.
Now to sort out my presents.
I put them with my other presents that need to be wrapped up.
Time for a brew.
Hubby came back and had a sloppy wet one ๐Ÿ’‹
We had a light tea.
