A Bit Breezy.....

Another tram ride...
The tram was a bit full that was going to Fleetwood. We caught the tram to Starr Gate.
Caught the tram to Fleetwood.
We have a look around the Charity Shops first.
Goes into my favourite fabric shop.

Back on the tram we go.
Back to the hotel to unpack the trolley.
Cup of brew is needed.
I got my things ready for later....
Off for something to eat...
Back to the Hotel to add the sequins...
It didn't help, it was raining when we were just about to leave.
We borrowed an umbrella, the wind was turning inside out!
I walked to the tram stop. The tram to North Pier was rammed.
We caught the tram back to Starr Gate.
Back onto the tram we got.
I had some lovely looks from everyone.
Got off at the North Pier.
Still raining.
(I guess one of my late parents doesn't like me wearing sequins!)
Gets to Lucky Girls.
The woman on the signing in for tickets was wearing a lovely sequin dress...
"You look so nice in that dress, if I could fit into it, I would!" I laughed.
Off to our seats we went.
We had our request read out. 
(the song is at the end of this blog post)
The performers were so good!
We had booked a taxi at the end of the show.
The show was overrunning, we had to miss some of the end of it.
We leave and there was a lovely transvestite wearing a lovely gold sequin dress, who was serving the drinks all night behind the bar was outside the venue.
I told her, "She looked really lovely in the gold dress."
She said the same about my sequins.
"I got this dress from Amazon,  it is a XL"
I laughed, and said,"That wouldn't even fit one leg in it..."
Then she loved the silver shoes I was wearing.
"Size 12's," I replied.
"They would fit me,"She laughed.
Our taxi arrived.
I said "Goodbye."
It's a good job we booked a taxi, everyone was coming out of the nightclubs, some were lying in the road. We got back to the hotel.
Thanked the taxi driver.
All the sequins came off as well as the silver shoes....
Bed Time!
