Falling Hard Off The Wagon

 Getting my daily dose of Vitamin Sea - Unknown
Welcome to the Friday Feeling 🎈
We did all of the Heardles.
Heardle 60's was:
One son was meeting a friend, so there was just 3 of us to look around the bottom end of Blackpool today.
Lovely breakfast.
Rain macs needed....
Waits to catch the tram to Bispham
 Nice Vintage tram goes past↑
We got to Bispham
And catches another tram to go into Blackpool
We get off...
We see what used to be  the all year round Christmas Shop.The building is a terrible state.
Few Charity shops were open.
Got some bargains.
We tried a tombola in one charity shop.
15 goes for £3 and wins nothing.
Even had a free go and won nothing.
I will stay away from that one in the near-future.
We go into one shop for coffee.
We move on and go into the Albert and Lion for lunch.
Great number↓
Afterwards we walk up the North Pier to get the tram back to the B&B.
Another Vintage Tram...
Gets off at our tram stop.
Back to the B&B for a quick brew.
Gets changed.
Leaves the B&B to catch the tram to the North Pier.
We are catching a Vintage Tram and having fish and chips while it goes up and down the tram tracks.
We finish back at the North Pier.
Hubby and I get off and go on a tram that goes all the way down to Star Gate.
While we wait for another tram.
We hear an Alexa being called upon from one of the houses opposite the tram stop.
The first tune we heard Alexa was:
Then four more tunes were being played while we waited for the tram to arrive.
Then the couple who was playing the tunes, came over from the house, and waited for the tram we were going on.
The tram arrived, and we got off at our tram stop to watch the sunset.
Gets back to B&B.
The B&B owners were hosting a street party with food and booze. I have been tee-total for nearly 9 years.
I fell off the wagon in a big way.....

40% Welsh Whisky
Anything else that had a % on it!
At least I was happy chatting, and even made a decision to stop another night...
2.30am I made it to bed.....
(I'm going to pay for this,
 tomorrow morning

Ralph? I Know Of Another Ralph.....

Behind every successful man stands a woman. And behind her stands his wife - Fay Weldon
 Welcome to my Tuesday 💪
Nice warm hug.
Brew with breakfast.
Thermal vest goes on.
Now to leave the house.
Fetches the newspaper on the way.
Sees my gold diggering brother at the Petrol Station.
My mobile phone decides to play up when needed.
One driver all over the road, goes past, 
and he has his mobile phone stuck to his ear when we went past him.
Then he overtook us,
(started to slow right down)
He slowed down even more coming up to the Road Traffic Island, just to make it bit more amusing, two cars jumped into the space that was left between us and him.
We parked in the car park, and now to look for some bargains.
We went into The Works, and picked up two boxes of charitable Christmas cards for next year. We had a look in the Craft Shop.
Next to look in the Garden Centre.
I got a few bits.
Nice glasses pity I don't drink alcohol!
Now went for a much needed coffee.
I had a Americano with Almond Milk, 
As they don't do full fat milk!
Now for lunch!
Now to walk it off!
I met a dog called Ralph and had a yak with his owner.
The only other Ralph I knew was:
Now back on the road, home.
Gets back home.
Unpacks the small amount of things we got.
Now for a very strong cup of coffee...
My son's Air Frier came out to do their tea of chips and fishcakes.
We were still full up from lunch.
We watched a great film...
Now to catch up with some Christmas Specials of Top Of The Pops.
Then onto 1978 Christmas Special.
I got on with writing yesterday's blog post.
Then a quick look in today's newspaper.
