Never Want To Bake Another One!

Death is only going to happen to you once; I don't want to miss it - Jim Morrison.
Welcome to my Monday 🍪
I had a warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
However I have broken up for the Christmas Holiday, hubby is still on his Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 until Friday!
I give him a sloppy wet 💋 before he leaves.
I get up, thermal vest goes on.
I have someone coming around to check the smoke alarms, and fuse box.
First up, a coffee is needed.
All the smoke alarms gets replaced.
I even have one fitted in the living room.
The kitchen light was replaced.
The fan was replaced in the bathroom.
As the previous one, (I paid for) if splashed with water could have caused a shock!
He checked all the sockets he could get to.
(He was pleased with our new bathroom light, as he was going to replace with the same as I have got)
Time for some lunch!
Now to make mince pies....
Tea at 3
I got through 4 packs of shortcrust pastry.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 👄 for his trouble.
(He has snooker tomorrow)
Meat Free Stir Fry.
Another batch of meat pies made.
Then a Mincemeat Tart.
Then looked inside today's newspaper.

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!
