Nutcracker Moments!

 If you can't see the humour in yourself, you could be missing the joke of the century - Dame Edna Everage.
Welcome to my wet Saturday ☔
9 Years ago, I started my first time as a Lollipop Lady.

On the way back home, hubby got some new wipers for his car.
Home time.

Awash With Sequins & Those Silver Shoes!

 Don't forget to tell everyone it's a secret - Gerald Lieberman
Another quick update....
I am getting the blog updated as fast as the time  will let me!
*In the last 4 weeks...*
I baked again, put the Llama cake in.
No one wanted to try or buy it, so I had it back.
My youngest son had great A level results 🎈🎈
We spent a few days in Blackpool again.
The Disco ball was asking for another visit from us.💃💃
We visited "Funny Girls "again.
The sequins and silver shoes were worn...
The looks I had off people when I was on the tram ;)
*Lots of nice comments on my silver shoes!*
The 6 summer week holiday is nearly over....
Then the yellow peril (me) will be back on duty.
I have 6 weeks of frustration to get rid off.....
Hopefully my silver laces, along with my lumo hat, coat, and Stop sign might make the car drivers stop a bit sooner than they do.....
*Tomorrow will be the 9th Anniversary of me writing this blog!*
Hopefully soon, you will be able to see what I have been doing since we returned from Blackpool in June...🌈

Welcome back Friday, it's been far too long since last time, the Friday Feeling has visited me 🎈
Big hug with brew.

Can't find any car parking spaces again.
I finally find one in the old GP Surgery car park.

Then the fun starts...
Traffic queues starting to build up.
I was asked:"If I was going to wear my summer coat soon?
"I am wearing my summer coat!"I replied.
I finish in one piece.
Now off home for coffee and crumpet!
Then out with a bag of 70's tunes...

Quick look in the newspaper.
Eddie Rabbitt  was an American country music singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions", "I Love a Rainy Night" (a number-one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100), and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.He sadly died on this day in 1998 aged 56.
I just flopped into bed without my Sleep Tea and not putting in my ear plugs...
I woke up at 3am to the sound of my hubby's loud snoring...
Ear plugs back in...
Silence is Golden!
