Beach Time!

Meet me in the bedroom in five minutes and bring a cattle prod - Woody Allen.
Welcome to our Sunday in Blackpool 🗼
I woke up at 5.30am, couldn't sleep for the loud snoring from Sleeping Beauty.
I enjoyed a cup of brew.
Hubby wakes up when I put on the table lamp.
I make him a cup of tea.
 I write out the postcards.
I have a hot shower before breakfast.
Lovely breakfast.
Now out we go...
Tram time.
Back on the tram to ...
Looks in more Charity Shops.
Coffee time in Costa Coffee.
While we sat there, someone was preaching to a man about Jesus. Reading it outloud from his phone!
We bought a Parasol for the beach later.
Looked at the beach.
Into Home Bargains to look about.
Catches the tram back to the B&B.
Drops off bargains.
Collects things for the beach.
Waits for the tram.
Goes to Velvet Rollercoaster for lunch.
Now to hit the beach!
The parasol lasted only half an hour as it broke in the wind!
Didn't like the look of those dark clouds coming over.
The Go-Karts track isn't there no more.
While we waited at the tram stop.
A tram went past us on the other line down to Star Gate.
While we stood waiting, a six year was playing with her younger sister's pushchair, until it fell backwards. Both parents just sat there and let it happen!
One woman just looks at me is disbelief as one of the parents picked up the pushchair.
When we get on the tram, two kids aged between 6-7 were dangling off the hand straps and standing on the near-by seats. Their mum and grandma ignored them, until they heard my eyes roll.One tells them to get down and sit by them. One passenger then gets on, and puts his rucksack down on the seat next to himself.
I was glad to get off at the next stop.
We hit the corner shop for more supplies.
Tea time.
Back to the room to plan out tomorrow.
With rain mac.
I got a nice windmill for my parent's grave and nice towels with poms poms attached.
Quick look again in the newspaper.

Wow, That's A Nice Looking Car!

Age is something that doesn't matter unless you are a cheese - Billie Burke.
Welcome to my Sunday in Farnbrough!
I looked through the blinds...
At least it's not raining...
Bit of squeeze to get through between that van and black car I thought!
It was a bit slippy underfoot in the shower.
Glad I didn't slip when I got out!
Shut that door....!
 Headed down for make it yourself breakfast.
We sat outside.
At least the sun is coming out!
Some of the other guests were saying about some guests booked in tonight turned up in a taxi at 4am demanding to have their rooms!
Check is 3pm not 4am! They got back into their taxi and left.
Once we had breakfast, we got our bag and left.
(Not coming back to this B&B) 
Now onto the car show.
Parks in the VIP car park.
Some nice cars to see↓
Now for hubby to have a go in a Sport's car.
Off he went for 20 mins.
Nice car came back while I was waiting for hubby to come back.
Hubby came back!
Now off to the VIP area...
Then we go up on the roof and looks down.
Back down to have a look around some more.
Up for lunch in the VIP area
Then one last look around.

Now back to the car.
Loads of traffic everywhere.
Half way home, we stopped for coffee and nibble.
 On the way back home, we picked up a Lucky Bag from Morrisons.
Finally got home after 4 hours travelling!
Unpacked the lucky bag..
Then we had tea.
Back out to get another Lucky Bag from Waitrose.
No rain this time.
Opens the lucky bag....
Sleep Tea time.
Hubby's back on the wobbly work wheel 🎡
So it's Goodnight from me, 
Goodnight from him 🎈
