Blackpool, Here We Are Again!

In a good portrait, the eyes follow you around the room 
- Peter Cook
 Welcome to the journey onto Blackpool!
Cup of brew is needed.
I have a shower.
Dressed.
Now down for breakfast. 
After breakfast, we went to speak to someone about being overcharged for the room.
Excuse was with Booking.com, she will refund the money as soon as possible.
Back up to the room to pack up the things.
We checked out.
Back on the road to Blackpool....
I think we will pass on seeing hubby's relations.
I didn't bring my Holy Water!
Good job I don't need no petrol.
Getting near to Blackpool!
We got into Blackpool.
We had to pay for overnight parking as there was no room outside the Hotel.
We unpacked the car.
Now to unveil the lovely room!
Unpacks the bags.
Time for a cuppa. 
Now out to go and explore on the tram.
We get off at Cleveleys.
Charity Shop Time!
One Dvd I won't be buying↓
The price of having really big feet!
Back on the tram back to the hotel to unpack the trolley and have tea.
Back out to catch the sunset and have a trip to Fleetwood.
We reach Fleetwood.
Back on the tram to look at the lights in Blackpool.
Back to the hotel.
Now to enjoy that lovely bed!

It's Slowly Being Emptied!

I told you a million times, don't exaggerate - Rik Mayall
Welcome to my Thursday BedlamπŸŽ’
Up early to do the Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Breakfast and brew time.
I got my thermal vest on, as well as plenty of layers.
Now to leave the house.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
On goes the winter coat, winter hats and winter gloves. 
Gets my newspaper.
I hope that lorry moves,
before I start my shift!
Exchange my newspaper for my big red stick.
Now to put on my lights.
Now let's go to work...🍭
One car stalled, put my stick out, the engine came back to life, and drove straight under my stick!
BOING! my big stick went.
It wasn't as bad as yesterday....
At least the traffic lights were letting a few cars through. 
Finished in one piece.
Tired to park on my half of the drive.
However.
 The two black bins were in the middle of the drive and had a council lorries either side of the bins.
I had to park opposite to move the black bins out of the way.
The bed bases were still waiting to be collected.
The Council workers were still clearing out next door's house. 
I did offer them a drink and they refused.
In the house I went to put on my coffee machine.
Washing machine went on.
I looked out of the front door and saw the bed bases still there.
I saw someone driving past, looked at the bed bases, then they looked up and saw me staring at them as they drove past. hehehe.
Light lunch time.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
On goes my winter hat, winter coat and winter gloves. I turn on my lights. I collect my big stick.
I go and wait in the square for my friends.
Both friends turn up for a little rabbit.
The low-lying sun was a bit of problem again.
At least the traffic lights are slowing down the traffic. Last minute braking on the otherside not helping..
A few BOINGs given out.
Finished in one piece.
Home time.
 The bed bases were took away \o/
Let's see how much has been emptied from next door.
The shed is still full.
Now to have a much needed brew.
Now to get the tea on the go.
Hubby comes back.
I gives him a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served up.
Yum!
Now to look into today's newspaper.
