Turns on my lights.
Now to start work....
They had lots of snow yesterday.
Some car drivers hadn't bothered to clean the snow off their cars!
Few Boings given out for going under the stick.
I had my first Christmas Card!
Still had a few last minute cars braking at the last minute again.
Finished in one piece.
Back home I go...
Put the coffee machine on.
Glitter balls are up....
I moved the Christmas Wreath over a bit↓
Now for some much needed coffee!
Hubby took some photos of the lovely snow they had in Evesham yesterday.
Unloaded the dishwasher, and loaded it back up.
Made some fresh soup.
Wrote one blog post up to lunch.
Liquid lunch time.
Now back out to the afternoon shift.
On goes my Winter coat, winter gloves and 2 hats.Puts my lights on. And has a rabbit with my 2 friends until it is time to start my shift.
I say goodbye to them.
I am glad it is a bit overcast as I have not got to worry about the low lying sun! 
But still I have cars on the otherside failing to stop. If only I had a bigger stick, I could give them a bigger BOING!
Few last minute brakers as well!
It was nice to finish in one piece.
Hometime for me!
Brew time.
I wrote out some Christmas Cards.
Sorted out some presents to be wrapped up next week.
Time to do Meat Free Stir Fry.
Hubby got a Magic Box from Kidderminster's Morrisons.

Welcome to our snowy Sunday ⛄
The plan to go to Stratford was cancelled.

The snow stopped at the border as we had a sprinkle!
