 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 get the bus to Lytham.
Catches the Stagecoach bus.
Gets to Lytham.

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.

Welcome to my Tuesday 👺
Nice hug with a nice brew.
It's still dark outside and rain is forecasted.
On goes the sexy lumo trousers.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before I left the house.
I puts on my lights.
Now for the fun to start ...🍭
I have full waterproofs on, and it stops raining!
Great, nice to get sweaty!
Gloves gets took off and open the winter coat abit.
Some car drivers don't understand the word STOP on my stick.
My shift was getting better until this happened.
I had stopped a 21 reg plate blue mini to cross a parent back over, when I glanced over at the woman driver of the mini and she mouthed
"ARSEHOLE!" to me!
I am just trying to do my job!
It's a pity I couldn't launch my lollipop stick like a javelin to her back window....
At least it wasn't the finger she gave me!
Finished in one piece.
I gets the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Now to get yesterday's blog post out of the way.
Has two strong coffees while writing it!
Trying to get answers on where my parcel was delivered last week and am I going to get it?
Pulling teeth over this.
Trying to give Fed-Ex more time to collect it I was told!
After that fun, it was time for lunch!
I looked at the weather reports.
50% of rain.
I am going comando...
(No lumo trousers)
Now for the afternoon bit...
A little bit of Manfred Mann...
I put on my boots just in it case it does rain.
(I don't want wet feet!)
I puts on my lights.
Chats with one friend until I start my shift.
Just as I am starting, I stick my lollypop stick out to stop a grey Land Rover, My stick was inches away from the tap and crack of her windscreen!
A blue 21 plate blue mini drove past me twice, but it wasn't the same woman from this morning.
My other friend I talk to, came to see me with a handful of CDs from the Charity Shop.
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Dreamboats and Petticoats 3
The Killers - Hot Fuss
Maroon 5 - Songs about Jane
The Best of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music
I told him, I hope he left me some CDs to get. 
He laughed and said they have more DVDs in.
I said goodbye to my friend and hope to see him tomorrow...
Finished in one piece.
Time to chill to Manfred Mann...
Back home.
Now to start on the Sewing Machine.
I made one draught excluder.
Then I had to put the tea on.
Hubby a sloppy wet 💋 when he came home.
Hubby booked himself a ticket to watch Chubby Brown at the Palace Theatre tomorrow night.
I got some things in the sale at Argos.
Pick up them tomorrow as well as bits from Screw Fix.
Quick look into Today's newspaper.
Jeannie C. Riley (born Jeanne Carolyn Stephenson) is an American country music and gospel singer. She is best known for her 1968 country and pop hit "Harper Valley PTA", which missed by one week simultaneously becoming the Billboard Country and Pop number-one hit.
