Sorting Out The Sequins & Nails!

 If you don't like my option of you, you can always improve - Ashleigh Brilliant
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
We go and see if there is a parking space outside the hotel.
There was one, but a bit too small for hubby's car↓
He parked the car in the next road.
We had a nice filling breakfast.
Collects the trolley.
Now to catch the tram to Starr Gate↓↓
Now to get the bus to Lytham.
Catches the Stagecoach bus.
Gets to Lytham.
Charity Shop time.
Quick coffee break.
Back on the bus to look around St Annes.
The rain came down while we were on the bus.
When we got off, those dark clouds were still overhead us.
We did the circle of Charity Shops. 
 Nipped into Aldi before we caught the bus back to Blackpool.
We had to put up with a grumpy bus driver on the way back. I was glad to get off.
Walks over to the tram stop.
Hops aboard.
Goes past the large Disco ball.
Back to the hotel to unpack the trolley.
Cup of brew is needed.
We had a light tea.
Hubby is off to see Roy "Chubby" Brown on the North Pier.
I had my sequin trousers and nails to sort out.
Hubby goes off to get the tram.
I have a shower.
Hubby meets Chubby at the end of the show.
He has a photo taken and an autograph. 
I sorted out my sequin trousers.
Painted my nails.
Now to look into today's newspapers.
I keep the bed warm for when Hubby comes back.
He comes back and I go off like a light...Zzzz

- Bob Hope
Welcome to the Monday Motivation 🎈
Busy day ahead....
Heardles be done later on....
Breakfast and Brew time.
On goes the trouser suit!
I still had to wear a coat, as it was freezing.
My younger son was coming with me.
Time to leave the house.
Gets dropped off near the bus station.
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋 before I left.
Walked down to the bus station.
Waits at the bus stop.
Bus comes.
  I sit at the back.
Good book to read...
I did put my face mask on.
I even opened a window to let some air in.
Someone came on and shut it!
All the way to Stratford in the sunshine.
Gets off and walks to the Town Hall to hand in my form.
Waits to be seen.
I hands in my form.
Can't process it because the two people who signed the form ain't in South Studley but in North Studley!!!!
I gets the form given back to me and I walk out.
I need a bloody coffee and nibble!
Few phone calls later, I have to return the form and get it signed by two people in South Studley.
I have a hour and half to kill before getting on the bus back.
Time to hit the Charity Shops!
Got some bargains for my younger son.
More pom pom items for me.
Visited the Christmas Shop.
Had some fun with the Nutcracker!
More looking about.
Someone got married there as well↓
We carried on looking about and sat by the river for ten minutes before we got the bus back.
We hopped onto the bus.
Let the Magicial Mystery tour start...
One of passengers says to the bus driver,
"You have missed the turning!"
The bus driver drives to the big island and comes back and turns left.Only to find at the mini-island he can't turn right.
He gets around the mini-island and off to Alcester he goes. We get into Studley, he asks someone walking their dog if this is Crooks Lane.
I hope it is as I am getting off at the end of the lane.
Finally gets off, and walks down to the Parish Council building.
I had in my form to be resigned.
We walk down to the Charity Shop.
Has a laugh in there.
Off to get the Evesham Bus.
More magical mystery tour.
It didn't go round Lakeside, so we had to get off before it was going to the Bus Station.
Nice 25 minute walk in the sunshine back  home.
I was so glad to get home after today!
Nice cuppa to have!
A Councillor took my completed form back to Stratford before 4pm.
She had right fun putting it in!
At least it's in.
