Highlights of 2023!

The truth is more important than the facts - Frank Lloyd Wright
Happy New Year everyone 🎇
Just a quick update on how 2023 went for me.
The Best of 2023 
My older son became a Councillor and started at University.
I too, became a Councillor on two Parish Councils
The sequins made appearance....
My youngest son turned 18!
(Even better is I won't have to see my ex-plum any more \o/)
 We visited Blackpool twice \o/
We visited Bobby Ball's statue↓
We visited Les Dawson's grave↓
Keith Harris's grave↓
I came first in a Macmillan Bake Off in aid of my lovely friend who passed away in September.
The minion collection is growing...↓
Third Anniversary of cutting off both of my brothers \o/
The Worst of 2023
We stopped in two hotels and after staying there,we won't be going back again. :(
My lovely friend of 30 years passed away in September :'(
My hubby's brother cut contact with my hubby \o/
Their inheritance was paid out, no contact with hubby for two and half months until after Christmas. When hubby had got badly written message from his brother, asking where the £600 payment from a plan their dad took out for his  brother's kids was?
(Hubby didn't realise there was time limit!)
 Hubby's brother had wanted a huge games machine that hubby  got rid off while clearing out their dad's house.
(Hubby's brother couldn't fit it in his car when he came down on the Sunday after their dad had died, when he grabbed the new 2 week old microwave, and coffee maker from their dad's house)
I hope Hubby's brother enjoys his inheritance!
At least my Hubby is paying for a nice new Gravestone for his  late dad and the 5 family members in the family plot. It should be ready in April just in time for his late dad's Birthday.
We went to see Madness in concert before Christmas.
Oh dear, they only played two old hits in 40 minutes. They played their new album, which we couldn't stand. After 40 minutes we walked out of the concert. At least the DJ before Madness came out played some great tunes!
Now to see in the New Year...

Welcome to my Good News Tuesday.
Hubby still was at work this week.

Liquid lunch time.
I wrote another blog post.
Outside for some vitamin D.
My Housing Officer phoned to tell me:
"The Council is not selling the land now,
They are doing up next door neighbour's house."
I said,"I know already."
"Really, who told you?"
I told him, he sounded surprised!
So I will look forward to new neighbours!
Goes back in to start on the tea.
Nice to see the sun today \o/

I return back to Sexy Beast.
Both friends are here for a little rabbit.
We hear a bang coming over where I normally stand for my job. We notice a van pull up with a panel missing from the side of the van.
The van driver stopped the van, and went and retrieved the missing panel. Then we watched him try to put it back on.
He had help from someone to try and fit it back.
One friend said goodbye and went to work.
My other friend and I walked around to the square to carry on watching to see if the missing panel was going to fixed on.
In the end he tied it on and taped it on.
Then he drove off.
We walked down to see if the Charity Shop was open. It wasn't.
Some fun I am going to have tomorrow↓
There  are surely going to be traffic lights?
 The low lying sun is going to cause some problems again.
I said goodbye to my friend.
Afternoon shift! 
Oh dear, cars not stopping on the otherside.
BOING x 3.
I gave out one loud BOING and the car driver turned round to see me walking across the road with my big stick!
Some of the schools are closing early because of the Teacher's Strike.
I will still be here!
Finished in one piece!
Now back home.
One large cup of brew.
Attempted to get one blog post finished by the time hubby came back.
