Sorting Out The Sequins & Nails!

 If you don't like my option of you, you can always improve - Ashleigh Brilliant
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
We go and see if there is a parking space outside the hotel.
There was one, but a bit too small for hubby's car↓
He parked the car in the next road.
We had a nice filling breakfast.
Collects the trolley.
Now to catch the tram to Starr Gate↓↓
Now to get the bus to Lytham.
Catches the Stagecoach bus.
Gets to Lytham.
Charity Shop time.
Quick coffee break.
Back on the bus to look around St Annes.
The rain came down while we were on the bus.
When we got off, those dark clouds were still overhead us.
We did the circle of Charity Shops. 
 Nipped into Aldi before we caught the bus back to Blackpool.
We had to put up with a grumpy bus driver on the way back. I was glad to get off.
Walks over to the tram stop.
Hops aboard.
Goes past the large Disco ball.
Back to the hotel to unpack the trolley.
Cup of brew is needed.
We had a light tea.
Hubby is off to see Roy "Chubby" Brown on the North Pier.
I had my sequin trousers and nails to sort out.
Hubby goes off to get the tram.
I have a shower.
Hubby meets Chubby at the end of the show.
He has a photo taken and an autograph. 
I sorted out my sequin trousers.
Painted my nails.
Now to look into today's newspapers.
I keep the bed warm for when Hubby comes back.
He comes back and I go off like a light...Zzzz

Trying Out The Buses....

When having my portrait painted I don't want justice, I want mercy - Billy Hughes.
Welcome to my Monday 🎪
Up for a much needed brew.
We did the Heardles.
Heardle 60s was:
Washed and dressed.
Now for a lovely breakfast.
Goes back up to the bedroom.
Rain macs needed.
Waits for the tram to Star Gate.
Gets off at Star Gate,
Crosses the road, to get the bus to Lytham.
Bus arrives.
We sit up the top at the front of the bus.
After 20 minutes we arrive in Lytham.
The first charity shop we go in, my youngest son wins 4 prizes on the Tombola.
He wanted that big teddy, but didn't win it.
We carry on looking around Lytham.
In one charity shop I got chatting to a woman (Who said she was 71 years old and happily divorced from her husband)
She had a lovely black Lab dog.Who liked plenty of fuss. She gave him a better life from the bad life he had. She has had him for 4 years and called him Tom. We had a good chat for half an hour. Then off for a much needed coffee!
One son went back to the previous Charity Shop to buy a huge grey Teddy Bear.
We caught the bus to St Annes.
Time to look around.
We found a nice takeaway place for lunch.
We sat in the park and ate our lunch.
Afterwards we carried on exploring St Annes, and picking up more bargains.
We caught the bus back to Blackpool.
Got on the tram from Star Gate, nearly getting to South Shore, when the tram driver slammed on the brakes, the conductor went flying.
Some kids were walking in front of the tram, four made it over, the fifth kid decided at the very last minute not to risk it and did a U turn.
The tram driver just put the brake on the tram stopped straight away. We had to wait for 10 minutes for a replacement tram driver. 
We set back off, and we got off a South Shore.
The tram number was 001.
Yesterday when we got off at South Shore, a man tried to take a selfie with the tram moving off and nearly hitting him in the process.
A blast of horn from the tram driver moved him out of the way.
Note to self, keep away from 001
Walked to see my old mate who has a 4* hotel and used to work at Royal Mail.
He said to my son with the big Teddy Bear,
"You won the teddy?"
My son replied, "No, I bought it!".
We had a good long chat, with coffee, and got talking to one of his guests that was stopping there. After 2 hours, I wished him well and hope to see him next year as well.
We get the tram from South Shore to the Cabin stop.
Back to the B&B.
Unpacked all our bargains.
Light tea.
Hubby goes off to take some lovely photo of the sunset↓
Meanwhile I have a quick look in the newspaper.
