Timed That Well!

 A couch is good for one thing only - John Wayne
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hug to start!
Brew with breakfast.
On goes the thermal vest.
Not so many layers as it's going to get warm later.
I didn't even have to cover up Sexy Beast last night either \o/ 
Off I go.
I gave my hubby a wet sloppy one when I left.
On goes one winter hat and the lightweight gloves as it's quite warm!
I puts on my lights.
Now let's get to work 🍭
I had a few BOINGs to do for those car drivers that drove under my stick and failed to stop!
More worst on the otherside of road, where they didn't even look and ignored the raised Stop sign!
At least I finished in one piece!
I had a good long chat about Crystal Healing with one friend I cross over.
Eye opening!
I told her, hubby is having it tried out on him tonight!
I wished her a good day.
I popped into Co-op with my nice long list.
Hoping I will reach my target and get £3.50 off the bill.
Two shopping bags later.....
Off to get my newspaper and my neighbour's magazine!
Back home finally!
Coffee machine goes on.
Unpacks all the shopping.
Quick coffee.
Then it was chop chop the veggies, cook the chicken, then add the stock and in the oven it all went!
I put it on a slow temperature in the oven.
After all that,
Time to finish off my part of the soup!
A new batch will be made tomorrow, with the stock from the chicken casserole we are having later.
The sun has gone in, and it's cloudy.
No low lying sun to worry about now!
Time for part 2.
I saw one of my friends, I talk to in the afternoon, walking down the road.
He had a small beep off me when I went past him.
No gloves and one winter hat goes on.
Got to talking my friend who has just had his other hand operated on.
We were having a chat about soups and stews.
The friend who I beeped earlier arrived eating a sausage roll.
I said goodbye to my friend with the dog and and my other friend and I went to turn on my lights.
We came back to the bench and my other friend arrived. 
We all had a good rabbit.
He then gave my friend and I a chocolate Gingerbread man each.
I will have later with my brew when I get back home.
I said goodbye to both.
Now to have fun with my afternoon shift!
No low lying sun to worry about.
Just in the first 10 minutes, a long Estate Merc done an emergency stop straight in front of me.
I had lowered my big stick just seconds before, and if he hadn't stopped, he face would have touched my stop sign!
He had to wait a fair bit as I had lots of kids and parents to cross over!
HE soon sped off when I got back on the pavement!
Still giving out the BOINGs again! 
Finished in one piece!
Hometime!
Time for a brew!
Turns up the oven.
Now to write yesterday's blog post.
Just finished when hubby got back home.
He had a nice sloppy wet one!
Time to dish up the tea!
Yum!
All four plates emptied!

Now to get into that warm bed before the heating goes off!

Cheapside!

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!
