It seems to be one thing after another….

I kind of hoped that after the horrific attack on Westminster Bridge a few months ago, was a one off. But now with Manchester and London again, I wonder how many more times the UK will be hit.

I really feel for Ariana Grande, I can’t even begin to imagine how she feels after her Manchester concert. I hope that the guilt she so obviously feels, because those that died and were injured, were there because of her, doesn’t hold her back.  The One Love Manchester concert she pulled together was truly amazing.

Then there comes the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower Block….

Hopefully things will start getting better, but it just seems to be one thing after another at the moment.

Those horrific attacks will never stop me from visiting places like London or Manchester, in fact I’m off to central London this evening…….

Has it really been that long…..

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I last was here….
Next weekend is the nieces wedding….time has gone so quickly, the joys of being busy at home and stupidly busy at work.

My holiday went so quickly…..

We got the sludge eating fish (a pleck I believe?) called sludge bucket and a couple of hatchets (I wasn’t allowed little sharks!). Sludge bucket has transformed the tank, it’s so nice and clean.

Sewing machines were taken for repairs and collected yesterday (Saturday), so looking forward to having a decent sewing machine at my class again.

Had a little drama with the bfs Audi TT…fuel pump decided it had had enough and died. Luckily it allowed me to get home from my class on the Thursday night and that we wasn’t planning on using to go to Stratford upon Avon.

Stratford upon Avon weekend was amazing as it always is (that’s another blog). The Kit Car show saw us purchase helmets for the Kit Car. The bf said he had a great Birthday too.

The next week saw the bfs Sky Q being installed….I quite like it, I used to struggle with his old Sky especially with catch up TV. I sort of tried sorting my wardrobe, but need more than a day or so! Wednesday turned into taking the parents shopping and having and hour or three chilling with my kindle and Jackie Collins.

Election Day was Thursday….I collected my ballot box Tuesday night, came away with the usual dos and don’ts…. Do be polite, dress appropriately, follow protocol….. Don’t say how many voters you’ve had, dress in red blue pink purple yellow orange or green or multicoloured. Election Day arrived, my mum is my Poll Clerk, we had a good day, had to get up at about 5am as we had to be at the polling station by 6.30am. We were open between 7am and 10pm. I’m also pleased to say that my local County Councillor is the one I voted for!

Friday was nail day…..neon yellow and green this time (sadly no photos). And we collected the car transporter.

Saturday was another early morning leaving at 6.30am for the trip to Telford…..didn’t get to see the famous Iron Bridge this time. Thankfully this time the rolling road was a success this time and the bfs Kit Car has an engine that purrs like a kitten now. We was home at a sensible time too….around 6pmish.

We shut the sticker business down for the two weeks I was off, so that was back up and running by Sunday evening.

It was back to work Monday, and it is really stupidly busy, it’s one of those times where everything is wanted at once, but come late June nothing will be happening.

I usually waffle in this blog during my lunch break, but I’ve not really had time to stop and eat let alone write…..

EveryDay stuff

5 days in……

It’s been busy so far…..

I have the pretty nails…..was good to have a catch up with my nail bird…. I’ve only got a few more sessions with her before her baby arrives, so as you can guess there was a lot of baby talk. Especially as someone I know had a baby at 25 weeks and 6 days….round about where my nail bird is at with her pregnancy.


Moving in to the Hen Do…….I think the bear (Alfred that is) had more fun. I’d never been to a Hen Do like that before and hopefully won’t again.The Bride to be was late, and rather than talking to her guests she decided she needed to help. Only part of it was set up on time…..the food (courtesy of the Brides Mother) was late…….  We were given wedding predictions things to answer….apparently it was supposed to be done seriously, but me being me said…..honeymoon in Outer Mongolia, when given the question of what comes next, I said a Dulux dog……at least like a few when it came to the advise but, I said Enjoy, others said don’t do it!!!

The shed door has been completed, a couple of rouge stickers sorted, and the bfs bros car has been sorted….

Oh and we had a couple of flakes of snow amid the beautiful sun.

Wonder what the rest of the week will bring!
