It’s a week since I last posted but you’ll be pleased to hear I’ll not bore you with stories of my health today.
Last week Partner-who-loves-tea and I had a morning in West Kirby, looking around the charity shops and boot-eeks. That is how you spell it, isn’t it? I know when I look at the price of boots in there I go “Eek!”
The clock repair shop has been there for many years.
The station is still in use and is popular with commuters going through the railway tunnel under the Mersey to their Liverpool jobs.
Oh look, a shop that sells postcards – back in a minute!
We are having a bit of a heatwave at the moment which has brought out the mini-skirts. It takes me back to the 1960’s.
Our bus – but I don’t need it today because I have my own chauffeuse.
I have been looking at how the design and model of Royal Mail vans have changed over the years so I thought I’d take a photo of a current one ready for the next change. After all, with the prospect of privatisation it could be the last style of Royal Mail van!
We stopped for a coffee at the Amici Bistro which I have featured before on this blog but I didn’t notice the last sentence on the menu last time…
That is such an important part of the joy of eating out…
I poked the camera through the fire station fence to try to get a decent photo of these two police officers on their horses.
“We’ll be coming out round the front in a moment,” shouted the policewoman, “you’ll get a better picture there!”
Wasn’t’ that kind?
And I did –
Later on I saw this Police officer going rather faster – blue lights flashing and siren going.
Our recycling bins are grey, our rubbish bins are green and our garden rubbish bins are brown.
From the beginning of June the Council have stopped emptying our garden rubbish bins unless we pay £35 a year. Since the tip is miles away and it dirties the car carrying garden rubbish we have paid up.
I got an “I am The Stig” T-shirt at a charity shop. I think I would have bought it for the label whatever the front said!
For those who don’t watch ‘Top Gear’, The Stig is an anonymous racing driver who tests cars in the programme.
I know I would get told off if I did a post without mentioning Ivy so here she is in the back garden enjoying the heatwave.
