Filling In The Gaps!

 My last credit card bill was so big, before I opened it I actually heard a drum roll - Rita Rudner
Hi all 👍
Just a quick update from the last one I did 4 weeks ago...💥
I broke up for the Summer Holiday from my lollipop job 🍭
I had some nice cards,presents and words from the parents and children.
I wore hubby out on his week off from work ...↓
We visited Evesham, Stratford upon Avon, and Kidderminster↓
For the rest of the time off,
It involves:
  1. Baking
  2. Blogging (only 6 more weeks of blog posts to write)
  3. Booking a holiday to Las Vegas for the next school holiday 
  4. Getting back to using my sewing machine(s)....
  5. Sequinned outfits will have to be worn too 😎
I have published two weeks of May.
Just as we went to Blackpool for Whitsun.
We didn't bump into Russ Abbot while we were there....↓
(Hubby's late dad was there in Blackpool when they were filming the TV series September Song which was released in 1993↓)
Hopefully the blog will be updated by the time I get back to work.....🙏

Time for breakfast and Brew!
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one before he went off to work 💋
I decided to get the newspaper early.
Just parked up, walked into the newsagents, the Council van had the whole car park to park in, no let's park right in front of Sexy Beast instead!
I gets the newspaper, the council worker walks throught the door while I am waiting to be served, he could feel the cold stare from me.
I gets back to Sexy Beast,good job no one parked behind me, as I wouldn't be able to get out!
I reversed and drove around the van, the council worker looked at me when he came out the shop.
I gets back home.
Tries to fill up the water container of the coffee machine, it comes away from its holder and everywhere is covered in water!
Gets the water up, and tries again!
Coffee machine on.
Now to water the garden. 
Coffee time!
I started to write some blog posts.
Light lunch time.

Welcome to my Sunday 💣💥
Hug and Brew time.
Added those big big sunglasses before I left the house.


Now off to check the tyre pressures of Sexy Beast.
Then to say hello to my parents once more.
Nice blue skies.
I saw Dave's wife, and told her he was looking after my dad. She was so pleased to hear about her late husband!
I said goodbye to my parents and off home in the sunshine.
We swapped cars and went off to Waitrose.
Good Private Eye front cover.
I got the free newspaper and free magazine↓
We popped into Co-op on the way back.
I got £5 off my shopping for downloading their app and using their Co-op card.
Nice cold coffee to cool down with.
Back home to unpack all the shopping.
One last look at the long grass...
I take out my younger son to get some coins changed.
I got a few things....
My youngest son changed a lot of loose change, and got £12.01.
Back home to unpack.
My coffee machine arrived!
One receipt I found in our Waitrose trolley↓
Then I had a surprise visitor come and visit!
My older son! 
He had a cold drink and muffin.
Told me what's been happening in the last 12 months since he seen me last.
Then he showed me the photos of the baby his girlfriend is having in December!
Shocked is not the word!
Then everyone starting calling my Nanny to be!
Before he left, I told him not to leave it so long before he next visits us!
After that bombshell,
Time for something to eat!
The garden looks nice after the mow!
Then we carried on watching series 2 of Michael Douglas.
I had my sleep tea.
No setting of the alarm clock tomorrow,
