Filling In The Gaps!

 My last credit card bill was so big, before I opened it I actually heard a drum roll - Rita Rudner
Hi all 👍
Just a quick update from the last one I did 4 weeks ago...💥
I broke up for the Summer Holiday from my lollipop job 🍭
I had some nice cards,presents and words from the parents and children.
I wore hubby out on his week off from work ...↓
We visited Evesham, Stratford upon Avon, and Kidderminster↓
For the rest of the time off,
It involves:
  1. Baking
  2. Blogging (only 6 more weeks of blog posts to write)
  3. Booking a holiday to Las Vegas for the next school holiday 
  4. Getting back to using my sewing machine(s)....
  5. Sequinned outfits will have to be worn too 😎
I have published two weeks of May.
Just as we went to Blackpool for Whitsun.
We didn't bump into Russ Abbot while we were there....↓
(Hubby's late dad was there in Blackpool when they were filming the TV series September Song which was released in 1993↓)
Hopefully the blog will be updated by the time I get back to work.....🙏

I have a red car trying to move me out of the way on the traffic island, tried to speed up past me, I was going a steady 35 in a 40 limit.
He put his foot down up the hill, and forgot about the Speed van at the top of the hill.
He put his brake lights too late love, expect the letter in two weeks!
Gets to work.
Gets on my winter coat, winter hat. Turned on my lights, then walked down to see in the Charity shop. Got some nice things. Turned on my lights on the way up.

The Last One Of 2022!

 “I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph.” — Shirley Temple
Welcome to my Friday Feeling 🎈
We got up early, it still being cold, 
We did today Heardles:
Heardle 60s:
My answers:
Time for breakfast and brew.
Thermal vest and layers went on.
Now to uncover the Sexy Beast. 
Still freezing cold!
Gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋💋
Trying to park Sexy Beast was fun.
The normal car park wasn't open, there was one parking space left in the car park opposite. One car was trying to reverse out, so I did a 3 point turn to let her out, so then I went back up the road and did another 3 point turn to come back down the road, however she parked on the side of the road with her back door of the her car open and I couldn't get past it!
She begrudgingly shut the back door for me to past!
I parked up, got on my Winter coat, gloves and two hats and went to get my newspaper!
Comes back and the gates to the car park are open.
Moves Sexy Beast into the car park. 
I picks up my big stick and goes and turns on my lights.
Turns on my lights.
Now let's get to work...
Here we go again.
The first child I tried to cross the road, the car drove straight under my stick.
Boing for him.
The following van tried to tell me with his hands for me to take my big stick out of the way of his van!
Boing he had for that as well.
Lots of tanks as well!
On a postive note, I was given lots of presents, cards and kind words.
Lots of last minute braking to cope with!
At least I finshed in one piece!
Back to Sexy Beast I go. 
Back home I go.
The coffee machine has given up the ghost :(
Back to normal coffee for now :(
Soup maker goes on.
I write one blog post up until the light lunch.
Now to do the last day of work!
On goes the Winter coat, winter gloves and two hats.
Oh dear, we have the low lying sun back again.
Turns on my lights.
Chats with one friend. My other friend arrived 10 minutes later.
Rabbit time.
I wished my friends a Happy Christmas and Happy New Year.
Now to survive the low lying sun.
Told one parent to be careful not fall over the bag of presents that was at the top of the stairs.
They said, "I was special!"
One white car just drove under my stick at 5 m.p.h!
One BMW driver on the otherside just looked at me as it drove straight under my stick!
One nice parent gave me a present and thanked me for doing a good job :)
I wished the parents and children a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!
Finished in one piece.
Goes back to Sexy Beast. 
For the last time 2022.
Back home.
Now to sort out my presents.
I put them with my other presents that need to be wrapped up.
Time for a brew.
