Highlights of 2023!

The truth is more important than the facts - Frank Lloyd Wright
Happy New Year everyone 🎇
Just a quick update on how 2023 went for me.
The Best of 2023 
My older son became a Councillor and started at University.
I too, became a Councillor on two Parish Councils
The sequins made appearance....
My youngest son turned 18!
(Even better is I won't have to see my ex-plum any more \o/)
 We visited Blackpool twice \o/
We visited Bobby Ball's statue↓
We visited Les Dawson's grave↓
Keith Harris's grave↓
I came first in a Macmillan Bake Off in aid of my lovely friend who passed away in September.
The minion collection is growing...↓
Third Anniversary of cutting off both of my brothers \o/
The Worst of 2023
We stopped in two hotels and after staying there,we won't be going back again. :(
My lovely friend of 30 years passed away in September :'(
My hubby's brother cut contact with my hubby \o/
Their inheritance was paid out, no contact with hubby for two and half months until after Christmas. When hubby had got badly written message from his brother, asking where the £600 payment from a plan their dad took out for his  brother's kids was?
(Hubby didn't realise there was time limit!)
 Hubby's brother had wanted a huge games machine that hubby  got rid off while clearing out their dad's house.
(Hubby's brother couldn't fit it in his car when he came down on the Sunday after their dad had died, when he grabbed the new 2 week old microwave, and coffee maker from their dad's house)
I hope Hubby's brother enjoys his inheritance!
At least my Hubby is paying for a nice new Gravestone for his  late dad and the 5 family members in the family plot. It should be ready in April just in time for his late dad's Birthday.
We went to see Madness in concert before Christmas.
Oh dear, they only played two old hits in 40 minutes. They played their new album, which we couldn't stand. After 40 minutes we walked out of the concert. At least the DJ before Madness came out played some great tunes!
Now to see in the New Year...

Give someone half a page in a newspaper and they think they own the world - Jeffrey Bernard
 Welcome to a warm Thursday 😍
Breakfast and Brew.
Rain was forecasted.
On went those sexy lumo trousers.
Now out of the house.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one 😘 before I left.
I was feeling so warm.
Off goes the scarf and jumper.
The winter coat and summer coat goes on.
As well the waterproof boots.
I goes and turns on my lights and gets the newspaper.
A bit of good parking on double yellow lines.
As it started to rain, I walked up the road and turned on my other lights.
Now to swap my newspaper for my big stick.
Then I walked over to my spot in the rain.
I gave out one big BOING  to one car failing to stop.
Then one lorry and one Motor home parked on the double yellow line opposite again!
As there were traffic lights opposite the Co-op the traffic was backing up by me!
Finished in one piece.
The sun is coming out!
Back home.
Before coffee,
I got on making tonight's tea.
Out came the red casserole pot.
Made the dumplings and added them to the pot and put it in the oven for later.
Coffee time!
I wrote yesterday's blog post up to my liquid lunch.
Had a chat with hubby on his lunch break.
On goes those sexy lumo trousers again.
Out I go.
On goes the winter coat, summer hat, waterproof boots.
I go and turn on my lights, walk down the Charity Shop, then turned on my lights.
The rain came down....
Fire  Engine was in the car park.
My friends and I gathered undercover until it was time for me walk over to my spot in the rain.
Raining down, didn't have many kids to cross over, as the parents picked them up in their cars.
The rain stopped in the last ten minutes of the shift.
No BOINGs given out.
