Well Done!!

 When a man tells you he got rich by hard work, ask him whose - George Bernard Shaw
Welcome to my exciting Thursday 😍
My youngest son is getting his A-level results this morning. ;)))
Breakfast and Brew.
Dressed.
I leave the same time as hubby.
I give him a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Goes to the local Tescos to fetch my newspaper.
Bumps into a ex-worker who turned out to be a bit of back stabber when I worked with her.
She asked how I doing.(Glad she didn't read my mind when I answered her question)
Back home I went.
Adds more to the recycle bin outside.
It being emptied today.
Coffee time.
Wishes younger son good luck as he goes and gets his results.
Out comes Kenny the Kenwood.
Quick cake to be made. 
Cakes go in the oven.
Just about manages to download yesterday's photos.
Cake cooled down.
Now to add some bits and pieces...
My son's A- level results:
Maths - A
Chemistry - A
Geography - B
Liquid lunch time.
Now out I go for a little ride...
I just got there and someone was reversing out of a space.
Time for another hair cut...
Pixie time!
While I was waiting for son who was having his  hair caught, I was chatting a woman about our holidays in Blackpool.
We talked about the charity shops in Cleveleys, Lytham, and St Annes.
I told her about last year's holiday when the kids had to catch the train back as the car was rammed.
I told her about our visit to see Les Dawson's grave we visited at Whitson.
When we go up next, we are going to see Keith Harris's grave.
My son was looking really great with his new haircut.
I told the woman before I left.
"I don't have long hairstyle no more, as I look like a bad transvestite!"
They all laughed as I went down the stairs.
Got some reduced things in Tescos before we went home.
Picture time!
Hubby has a haircut as well.
He gets a takeaway on the way back.
I recorded the first 3 episodes of "I Claudius".
It repeated on BBC 4.
Really good :)
Sleep Tea Time
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow 🎈

I tried to make a Gluten free Carrot Cake.
It didn't work out the way it should have.
Oh well, 
Next up...
Hopefully they can make lots of money from what I made.
Kenny needed a rest after making all of it.
I went to have a brew, and then hubby got on with the tea.
