Enjoying Friday Night With The Manfreds!

"Who's singing this?" - Anon
"Manfred Mann!"I replied
"Manfred who?" Anon answered back - 8/2/2019 
Welcome back to the Friday Feeling ๐ŸŽˆ
Warm hug to start Friday with....๐Ÿ’‘
Brew with breakfast.
It doesn't look cold outside...
Dressed.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹ before I leave.
Traffic lights have now been removed from the bottom of the road I work in.
Normal way to work \o/
It was quite cold to start off with.
On goes my winter hat, gloves and 4 layers under my summer coat.
I puts on my lights...
Now for some fun on a Friday!
Some car drivers were having a bit much of the Friday Feeling, and still carrying on underneath my stick....
Plus the temperature was going up ↗↗
I was getting warm under my hat!
I finished in one piece!
I gets the newspaper on the way home.
I puts on the coffee machine.
Now to pack the bag for tonight's getaway.
Bag packed.
Coffee time.
No Fed-Ex delivery.
I sends another email to the business I got my parcel from, saying if I don't get my parcel redelivered by Monday, I want a full refund.
Soon gets a response!
They are talking to Fed-Ex themselves!
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Hubby comes back at lunchtime....
We have lunch together.
He was getting more stuff from the lockup while I am doing my afternoon shift.
I gives him a sloppy wet ๐Ÿ’‹before I leave.
I took off two layers, put my summer coat on with my summer hat....
On the way to put on my lights...
I got chatting......
After 20 minutes I put on my lights as two friends were waiting for me to do more chatting...
Once it was nearly time to start.
I wished my friends a good weekend. 
Now for round 2...
The traffic was being good for once...
No problems at all!
Finished in one piece.
Once finished, time to get a move on...
I got changed, picked overnight bag up.
Now to catch the taxi to train station.
We caught train, not many wearing face masks now. We were sat behind three men, who were talking about their lives in general.
One has a break from his girlfriend while she went to uni to be a Social Worker. In that time he was seeing a mother he met dropping off his son at school. He was just about to sleep with this mother at his place when the girlfriend turned up at his house....
That didn't end too good.
The second man was drinking a lot of the Monster drink. He was on his way to watch the Birmingham City v West Brom match on a houseboat. 
The third man was talking a bit quiet for me to hear anything.
One got off 3 stops later, and the two other men got off the stop before us.
We got off at our stop, and found the place we are stopping at, tonight.
Signs in.
Now up to the 18th floor.
Now for our afternoon tea for 2.
Nice views of Birmingham City Centre.
Now to leave for the concert.
We were following directions on the Uber app for our driver. Ended up walking around the block 3 times!
Nice moon out.
Gets the driver by the old Debenhams.
Gets dropped near the Town Hall.
Got our tickets.
I noticed we were the youngest ones in the audience, and only about 15 were wearing facemasks including us!
They were talking about the new greatest hits album that has been released...↓↓↓
The second song they sung was was my favourite:
Both Paul Jones and Mike d'Abo took turns in singing.
Then Georgie Fame came on to sing some of his hits and other songs until the break...
During the break,we had a soft drink.
Georgie Fame came back on for the second half to sing his third number one hit....
Then the Manfreds came out to sing this one with Georgie:
Mike d'Abo then told the audience make sure you happy with your married partner then went onto sing.. 
then it was:
They finished the concert with:
We stood up and gave them a great clap at the end.
We walked back to the Rotunda.
There were some great night time views.
Now to enjoy the nice bed ๐Ÿ›
Night all x

Magic Mystery Tour

When you come to a fork in the road, take it - Yogi Berra
Welcome to my last Saturday in Blackpool๐Ÿ—ผ
Nice brew with hug.
Dressed.
Had a lovely breakfast.
Then it's to pack up the car in the rain!
Said goodbye to Rhona and Simon.
And off back home...
I reread this week's newspapers...
Then I fell asleep until we stopped off at the next services.
 Finally home after 6 hours travelling!
(We had to do Magic Mystery Tour as one junction of the motorway was closed, so we had to go the back way back home!)
Unpacked the car.
Time to unpack the bags!
Washing machine was put on!
Went to get a lucky bag of food.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
&
Sleep Tea.
Back to our king size bed ๐Ÿ›
