Lighting Up The Planet!

However much a shower control may rotate,the degree of rotation required to change from ice-cold to scalding is never more than one millimetre - Joe Bennett
 Welcome to my warm Hump of the Week 🐫
Heardle time!
Heardle 60s:
Son hadn't done his heardles, and by the time he had done them, I forgot to take a pic of them!
Time for some breakfast with brew.
I got to watering the plants in the garden before it got too warm.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before he went to work.
Now for a little ride in Sexy Beast. 
Gets the newspaper.
While waiting for the traffic lights to change to green, the car in front must be colourblind, he drove straight through the red light!
Dropped off younger son.
Then off to Bromsgrove.
I had to wait for it open.
That would look nice in my late Father-in-law's garden!
The doors were finally opened.
Half priced garden lights.....
Someone said to me as I was pushing my trolley,
"Hope you have left some for other people!"
I pointed to the loads left on the shelf,
"Of course, I have left loads!"
After paying for them, and loading them up in Sexy Beast. I visit Aldi and gets more bargains.
Final stop was to pick up my paint from Hughes.
There was something going on a the Palace Theatre, as everyone was parking anywhere, including the pavement!
Back home.
Put the coffee maker on.
Put all my lights out in the garden.
Even the bargain from Aldi went out.
Coffee time.
Had a chat with the Postman.
Must be getting old, no post for me,
But plenty for the kids!
The shade was disappearing....
I quickly repotted a plant I bought earlier.
One gnome went with windmills.
Time for a light lunch.
Now to get yesterday's blog post wrote.
I had Tea at 3.
I just finished writing the blog post,
When hubby walked through the front door.
He had a sloppy wet one 😘
Tea is served up.
Stew with Dumplings.
Hubby went off to see his friend to enjoy a Boys Night watched WWE wrestling.
I looked into today's newspaper.

I went outside to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Some of the lights were already coming on.

Mmmm now to watch a nice film before I go off to bed....
Sleep Tea Time.
I'm glad the temperature went down upstairs.
I slept on top of the duvet.
Out like a light I went Zzzzz

Marriage is forever. It's like cement - Peter O'Toole
Welcome to my Thursday in Blackpool ☂
Is it going to be sunny today?
Got dressed.
Now downstairs for breakfast...
So yummy!
Now to switch rooms.
We packed the rain coats...
I waited for kids to come out of their room.
A pink tram went past!
We get a tram down to Starr Gate.
There was a big queue at the bus stop.
We got the top desk of the bus.
This is the view
Gets off the bus.
Now to have a look around.
Now to see Les...
Now to have a much needed coffee and nibbles.
Now to walk it off...
We get the bus back to Starr Gate.
As soon as we get off the bus,
The rain starts!
Now to get the tram to The Tower.
Now to look around Blackpool...

Now to get the tram back to the B&B.
Cup of tea needed!
Our evening meal.
Then we are going to travel up and down on the trams at night!

A woman got off the tram with a see-through bag. I looked a bit closer and noticed a 9 inch vibrator in there!
Back to the B&B for a hot chocolate.
Quick read of the newspaper...
Now to bring the bed to life!
