I Wilko

DSC_1863

I have a lot of things to do this morning. I consider the prospects and the fact I need to get my hair cut.

DSC_1960

The washing machine is on, the battery charger is put on the car and I mow the lawn. That's the second time this year and it has already grown quickly since last week.

DSC_1979

I also do next doors, which was long and I knew the mower was going to struggle with.

DSC_1982

Back in my garden I have a walk around. And there to the left is something odd.

DSC_1984

A single plant in full bloom.

DSC_1985

What is it though and why?

DSC_1986

I’m fibbing a bit. There are a few other flowers in bloom too, along with the daffodils.

DSC_1983

They are looking okay on the right hand boarder.

DSC_1987

I also plant two of my QVC evergreen and lovely bloomers in the garden next to the garage.

DSC_1988

And the other one here.

DSC_1989

I put out the black bird feeders.

DSC_1990

And put some fat balls out for the birds.

DSC_1991

Erm we have some blue flowers too!

DSC_1995

And some more daffs.

DSC_1996

I’m looking forward to spring.

DSC_1997

There is even some blue flowers on the drive wall.

DSC_1961

I notice the time and skip breakfast to get to the town center before mid day. When I get  there Swanys is closed. So I go to the other one, that has just closed, so I go to Sneaky Pete’s, thats closed too. The only place open is the Man Cave. It is busy and looks expensive. I go to the Loft for breakfast to mull over the options.

DSC_1963

Over a cup of tea,

DSC_1964

And if someone was here with me, a game of Uno.

DSC_1968

Yep the hair needs cutting.

DSC_1969

The breakfast comes. I like the loft, it is relaxing, peaceful and I feel comfortable here.

DSC_1971

I let them know it is presented lovely and then demolish it.

DSC_1973

Well when I go down stairs, Man Cave is now empty. I ask if they can do me and they can. I ponder how dear it will be. A man appears from a door way and I’m jested at to sit down. Wow, this is nice, and then he gets a josh stick out and lights it. What is he doing with that? He is going to burn my ears with it, that’s what. I come out look years younger and smelling wonderfully, what ever it is they have done to me.

DSC_1976

I take the opportunity to go to Wilko’ while it is still open.

DSC_1975

I will miss their quality, inexpensive housewares, while be able to browse other items.

DSC_1978

With my bag full I await a bus. It’s not the usual bus number, but when I ask he is going via my road. I get on and sit down.

DSC_1977

Notably, this bus has a power socket for every seat! If only I’d brought my charger.

DSC_1980

At home I continue with the washing and a few other things until my dad picks me up.

DSC_2001

And around his I pick up playing Among Thieves.

DSC_2002

Yay this is great.

DSC_2006

And after Sunday tea it is time for bed.

Dog Food

DSC_1873

Saturday, I get up early as Les is collecting me to take me for a day out. When he gets round I give him a fast cooked sausage sandwich, which he describes as lightening hot. And so we are off for a well deserved day out.

DSC_1875

It rains the whole way here, and once here it rains some more. I warn him I’m worried. Worried about loosing the sense of being able to stand up. Nope I’m terrified.

DSC_1877

The last time I came it was 2004. Les drives to find the parking spot. It is still here.

DSC_1879

It’s all a miss. You don’t get tickets at the ticket office no, and Noah’s Ark is well not Noah's Ark anymore, its the way in.

DSC_1886

Seemingly it is wet out there.

DSC_1887

And what we have been on was wet. Incredibly wet. Yeah the fun of having me and Les together always did make a big splash. Tis though was just plain wet. And that was indoors.

DSC_1888

So wet my nuts are numb. I have a hot chocolate. My body needs it.

DSC_1889

While Les catches up on the footie.

DSC_1885

I study the waterproof map.

DSC_1900

A bit later I buy a bucket and spade for £3.20. It is very worth while getting one. It comes with free fries inside too.

DSC_1909

You just can’t imagine how wet it is.

DSC_1914

Its no drier on the inside either.

DSC_1921

Yes my pants are wet through.

DSC_1924

Thankgod for another hot cholate. Today I have a thing about hot chocolate. Maybe it is the first word.

DSC_1927

Yes I’m wet and yes its windy.

DSC_1929

Erm is that a dragon?

DSC_1931

Quick we must

DSC_1934

save the teddies.

DSC_1936

And with that we que up to see ghosts, only we don’t see any.

DSC_1939

Les makes a suggestion we go somewhere drier.

DSC_1938

And so we leave.

DSC_1942

He is right though, it is drier in his car set to 30deg C and the heated seats on full blast.

DSC_1958

We go for tea, not where we are but somewhere else, although we know we want a Frankie and Bennies.

DSC_1944

I order a hot chocolate, it comes with cream and chocolate maltster's. Les is not impressed when he hears it is free refills. I’m all “yay” and the waitress loves it.

DSC_1947

Our starters come.

DSC_1950

I must write so I do.

DSC_1951

It’s all about Noah you see. The original Ark is here, right in front of us.

DSC_1954

And after lovely little write the food comes.

DSC_1952

Thankgod Les ordered the big pizza, because its a bit small.

DSC_1955

Then the waiter comes over and says, we have brought you the right sized pizza you ordered sir, as well.

DSC_1957

Bemused, I leave him work out how he is going to eat it all. And he doesn’t!
