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.....🙏

Last Day Of Work!

It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to - W.C Fields
Welcome to my last day of work 🍭
Brew and Breakfast.
Gets dressed.
Now off for my final day at work.
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one 💋
Off to work I go....
On goes the summer coat and summer hat.
I go and turn on my lights, and got my newspaper.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
Now to turn on my other lights.
Turned on my lights.
Let's go to work....🍭
It was quiet for traffic and crossing people over as two of the four schools broke up last Friday.
I had parent give me a lovely present of cakes!
Then I crossed someone over who I have never before.
Oh dear....
He moaned about his neighbour having 3 carers a day going in. This is why this country is broken, he said.
I replied to that, "My late dad had 3 carers a day going in as he was bed bound and was dying!"
He soon changed the subject.
Next up was Alceser having too many Charity Shops. They sell too many new stuff.
My reply to that:
"Alcester and Droitwich are good for Charity Shop"
Next subject he moaned about was Covid.
"It is bad flu and during the lockdowns, he travelled everywhere."
I just rolled my eyes, and he got the hint and left me to do my job!
I got another present off another present \o/
I crossed over about 15 people.
Not much traffic either \o/
Back to Sexy Beast.
I went down to the Co-op to get some nibbles.
Back home I go.
Unpacked my shopping.
Running low on my favourite coffee↓
I looked on the web and Asda is the only suppermarket selling under a £5!
I will have to go this week to see if they have got any in! 
I ordered some new garden solar lights for the front garden and they arrived yesterday.
I spent over an hour and half putting them in the garden and fixing them to the garden arches and the remains of the Plum tree.
Once done, we will see if they come on tonight!
Liquid lunch time.
 A nice Birthday card arrived off Esty for a friend who is celebrating her 60th Birthday next week.
Now to do the final shift.
My younger son was coming down with me.
On goes the Summer Coat and Summer Hat.
I put on my lights and walked down to the Charity Shop.
I noticed the first shelf of books, had all my cooking books I gave them! 
Back up the road to turn on my other set of lights.
All my friends arrived.
Photo time!
It only started to rain, five minutes before I due to start, I quickly got my winter coat and wished all my friends a good summer holiday!
Now to do my final shift....
I was given more presents, and lots of nice comments. It stopped raining after 15 minutes.
Finished in one piece.
Back to Sexy Beast.
Back home I go.
Unpacks all my presents.
I had a cup of brew...
I had to make a quick tea as I have a Planning Meeting to go to later.
Hubby came home and a sloppy wet one 💋.
Back out after tea to go and be a Councillor...
Comes back, and the lights came on!
Quick look into today's newspaper.
We caught up with the news.
Sleep Tea Time...
Off to a warm bed with warm hands.

Hubby let the trolley fall over twice.
(We found out much later when getting the flask out of the trolley, the flask has smashed!)
We wasn't very impressed with the first hall we went in.
Moved onto the second hall. 
I met up with my friend from Scotland.
I got some more Minions material.
We sat down for twenty minutes to enjoy the spot of coffee we could get from the smashed coffee flask.
We went back around the second hall.
I got some sequin material.
Then we walked back to the car.
It started spitting with rain when we were walking. Got back to the car just in time.
Now for a nice drive home.
Unpacked all my bargains.
