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...

Awash With Sequins & Those Silver Shoes!

 Don't forget to tell everyone it's a secret - Gerald Lieberman
Another quick update....
I am getting the blog updated as fast as the time  will let me!
*In the last 4 weeks...*
I baked again, put the Llama cake in.
No one wanted to try or buy it, so I had it back.
My youngest son had great A level results 🎈🎈
We spent a few days in Blackpool again.
The Disco ball was asking for another visit from us.💃💃
We visited "Funny Girls "again.
The sequins and silver shoes were worn...
The looks I had off people when I was on the tram ;)
*Lots of nice comments on my silver shoes!*
The 6 summer week holiday is nearly over....
Then the yellow peril (me) will be back on duty.
I have 6 weeks of frustration to get rid off.....
Hopefully my silver laces, along with my lumo hat, coat, and Stop sign might make the car drivers stop a bit sooner than they do.....
*Tomorrow will be the 9th Anniversary of me writing this blog!*
Hopefully soon, you will be able to see what I have been doing since we returned from Blackpool in June...🌈
