 It was a very sad dinnertime.
The sun actually came out when I got out.
  I got home and changed to go to the Wake.
 I gets there.
Got myself a Lime and Lemonade (£1.15)
 Few ex-postmen said "Hi" to me when they arrived.
A few of the arseholes I worked with, didn't and just starred at me.
One of them, I remember.....
(when I was pregnant with one of my children 20+years ago)
 When I asked him a question:
 "Am I going to be took off my duty nearer the time?"
He replied to that:"Do you expect me to take someone off their duty for you to go on it?"
*So I was delivering mail, carrying 16 kilos of mail when I was seven and half months pregnant!*
 I enjoyed my table for one↑↑↑↑↑
After 20 minutes, of looking at empty glass and starring into thin air.
I left....
I got changed and enjoyed a coffee and nibbles↓
 I went to Job 2
(The co-worker who had a free ticket to go to the NEC (Creative Craft event) didn't want to go on her own, so didn't go! )
