Oh Go On, One More Won't Hurt!

"I'm not a snob.Ask anybody.Well, anybody who matters" -
Simon LeBon
Welcome to my Thursday 👅
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
We were expecting two deliveries of things to do our DIY project with.
First up was Wickes Delivery.
Then it was the Tile delivery.
(Let's hope hubby has measured the walls properly, as don't want to run out of tiles halfway through the job!)
Then while I went off to get the newspaper.
Hubby had a tip run to do.
I noticed a car had parked on double yellow lines when I was on the way back to Sexy Beast.
I also noticed the parking ticket on its windscreen!
Now for a much deserved coffee when I got back.
We dropped son off at work.
We popped in to see my parents.
We had a good chat.
 Then onto Sainsburys.
I have no more room for anymore British Bake Off Books.
Back home to unpack shopping.
Then it was light lunchtime.
Now to carry on watching the rest of Bad Sport.
Investigators detail shocking allegations that former Juventus director Luciano Moggi influenced referees in a scandal that rocked Italian football.

6:Fallen Idol 
 Hansie Cronje captivates South Africa as the nation's charismatic cricket captain, but allegations of match fixing besmirch his sterling reputation.
Then I got on with making tea and putting it in the oven.
My new CD arrived:
Next up to watch was:
Real eye opening!
Tea was ready.
Leeks wrapped in ham, cooked in cheese sauce.
Looked into today's newspaper.

Packing So Much In!

 The easiest way to find something you have lost is to buy a replacement - Rosenbaum's Law
Welcome to the Friday Feeling in Blackpool 🎈
Nice brew to start Friday with.
I draw the curtains back, to find it raining...
Downstairs for a good cooked breakfast.
Afterwards, it's time to get wet!
We missed one tram.
The next tram was full.
We cross the road and wait for the bus.
While we were waiting...
The tram comes....
5 mins our bus comes.
We go around the backstreets of Blackpool.
We get off to visit the rock shop.
Of course I have to get a fridge magnet!
Then onto a 60s cafe for a coffee!
Once we finished.
We went to catch the tram to Fleetwood. 
Gets to Fleetwood.
Now to look around some more shops...
Now to walk that off, by walking to the Fleetwood Ferry Tram Stop.

Back on the tram we go.
Back to the B&B for a brew.
Back out later on for fish and chips on the tram.
The kids tried to beat us by walking to the North Pier while we caught the tram.
We get to the tram stop first.
(Just about)
Onto the Heritage Tram.
While we were waiting to go.
We spotted a man wearing a rainbow jumper.
He was waiting for his date to arrive.
Not keeping still for a minute, lots of walking about, looking at his phone, talking on his phone.
We didn't have to wait too long.
The woman arrived in a very short dress, then they both disappeared around the corner.
Then the tram started to leave.
We were given trays and bottles of pop or water.
We travels down to Starr Gate.
Fish and Chips were given out.
We travel down to Bisham 
I bought some lovely things to go home with.
Once the trip came to a end. The kids again went off to beat us back to the B&B.
We waited for the tram at the North Pier.
This time the kids beat us back!
We just got back to watch:
Quick read of today's newspaper.
