Falling Hard Off The Wagon

 Getting my daily dose of Vitamin Sea - Unknown
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
We did all of the Heardles.
Heardle 60's was:
One son was meeting a friend, so there was just 3 of us to look around the bottom end of Blackpool today.
Lovely breakfast.
Rain macs needed....
Waits to catch the tram to Bispham
 Nice Vintage tram goes past↑
We got to Bispham
And catches another tram to go into Blackpool
We get off...
We see what used to be  the all year round Christmas Shop.The building is a terrible state.
Few Charity shops were open.
Got some bargains.
We tried a tombola in one charity shop.
15 goes for £3 and wins nothing.
Even had a free go and won nothing.
I will stay away from that one in the near-future.
We go into one shop for coffee.
We move on and go into the Albert and Lion for lunch.
Great number↓
Afterwards we walk up the North Pier to get the tram back to the B&B.
Another Vintage Tram...
Gets off at our tram stop.
Back to the B&B for a quick brew.
Gets changed.
Leaves the B&B to catch the tram to the North Pier.
We are catching a Vintage Tram and having fish and chips while it goes up and down the tram tracks.
We finish back at the North Pier.
Hubby and I get off and go on a tram that goes all the way down to Star Gate.
While we wait for another tram.
We hear an Alexa being called upon from one of the houses opposite the tram stop.
The first tune we heard Alexa was:
Then four more tunes were being played while we waited for the tram to arrive.
Then the couple who was playing the tunes, came over from the house, and waited for the tram we were going on.
The tram arrived, and we got off at our tram stop to watch the sunset.
Gets back to B&B.
The B&B owners were hosting a street party with food and booze. I have been tee-total for nearly 9 years.
I fell off the wagon in a big way.....

40% Welsh Whisky
Anything else that had a % on it!
At least I was happy chatting, and even made a decision to stop another night...
2.30am I made it to bed.....
(I'm going to pay for this,
 tomorrow morning

Are You Drunk?

 When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife - Prince Philip
Welcome to my Tuesday ⛾
Nice warm hug with my brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 😘 before he left for work.
I went back in that warm bed for a little bit of lie-in....
So warm with in Teddy!
Then I woke up, got dressed.
I put on the coffee machine, for when I come back.
Now to get some fresh air...
I popped to the Newspaper Shop.
I walked in with my facemask on.
The owner was on all fours looking at the bottom shelf.
"That's how I like it, my men kneeling in front of me!"I said to him, as he got up.
There was a man being served in front of me, asked me:
"Are you drunk?"
"No, only drunk on coffee!"I replied.
"You are so happy!" He said.
"I'm always happy, no point in being miserable!"
"Stay happy,"he said as he left the shop. 
I got my newspaper, and off home I went.
Now time for that much needed coffee!
First load of washing from yesterday was dried and took upstairs.
Now to use the washing machine again!
I sent another email about my parcel being delivered to the right address....
Being Ignored again!
I got yesterday's blog post wrote all the way to lunch.
Quick lunch as got a friend coming round for chat, coffee and cake!
My friend appeared!
Chat time.
We finished off the M&S scones...
We have a good yak...
More chat, and coffee later on in the week...
Now to put tea in the oven.
Hubby came home for a sloppy wet 💋
The ladder has now been sold, and pick up is tomorrow \o/
Tea is served.
