Bring Me More Sunshire!

"With my little stick of Blackpool Rock
Along the promenade I stroll
It may be sticky but I never complain
It's nice to have a nibble at it now and again" 
- George Formby & With My Little Stick of Blackpool Rock

Nice cup of brew to start the day.

Lovely breakfast.
Now to catch the tram..

Walked about a bit more.

Then we walked down to the Central Pier.

A light tea is needed!
Quick look in today's newspaper.

Nice Day To Say Goodbye!

 The truth hurts - maybe not as much as jumping on a bike with the  seat missing - Lt Frank Drebin, Naked Gun 21/2
Welcome to the Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice warm hugs to start this sad day.
It's my Father-in-law's funeral.
Just before breakfast.
We did all the Heardles. 
Now for brew and breakfast.
Gets up and puts the coffee machine on.
Coffee and nibbles before we get changed.
On goes the other hat for the funeral.
The other black hat looks too much like a lamp shade.
The other hat belonged to my late mum.
I wore it 20 years ago to another funeral.
Now it's time to leave in Sexy Beast.
We picked up two magic bags on the way.
They kept us waiting for 20 minutes for them.
(I will talk more about them later)
We get to my late Father-in-law's house to wait for the Hearse to arrive.
Hubby writes out the card that is going on the flowers.
I go and sit back in Sexy Beast.
The hubby's other family arrive.
One moans out loud in the street,
"Every other Wake has food besides this one!"
Then walks past and calls me a "Twat!"
That's nice and polite!
She goes into the house and has a good snout.
Followed by the other band of Piranhas goes into the house for more snouting.
I of course,
 I Say Nothing!
The Hearse arrives, and the flowers get added to the coffin.
Now to follow the hearse.
Feeling those cold blasts of stares.
The service starts with a big tune...
While we were listening to Dad's Army theme, someone was tutting behind me.
Once the lovely service was finished we went out to look at the flowers.
I could feel the cold blast of silence from hubby's family. 
I Say Nothing
Good job there was a friend of hubby's there that was talking to me.
Walking back to Sexy Beast, I feel those cold blast of stares!
Then onto the Wake we go.
The rest of hubby's family were sat at the far end, and we were sat at the other end.
Those cold stares kept coming......😁
I Say Nothing!
They kept walking past us.
I just looked at the bridge and not at them.
We ordered some food as we were hungry!
Buy 1 and get 1 free.
Someone wanted me to make up with one of the family members.
After 11 years of no contact and being nasty just before my wedding....
No chance!
They all started to disppear.
I waved to them that was left.
Off home we went.
Going back to those Magic Bags.
Terrible.
I refused to eat anything.
I had a sandwich for tea.
We didn't get the newspaper today.
But here's the number one's.
