I never knew I was, but watching Sky News at the caravan last night, it would appear that I am. If you're wondering what I'm on about, it would seem when I voted on Thursday I also took part in a survey and I am now one of the millions who are considered to be bigoted, racist and uneducated. I supposedly do not hold a passport, have never travelled abroad, live in a house worth less than £££ and earn less than the average national wage of £££. I think the only thing they missed out was obese!
I might have been offended but by the time I was listening to this I'd had 2 G&T's and found it all quite amusing even though I expect the tipple I enjoyed could lead me to also being labelled an alcoholic. Ah well.
I might have only been away for 24 hours but it was definitely worth the effort. The journey from Manchester took 90 minutes and Mark and Thomas were waiting for me when I arrived in Blackpool.
As I thought, there was no lunch prepared, I think Mark was fed up of cooking, so we went to the garden centre which is just a 2 minute drive from the caravan club site.
It's a lovely place and as well as plants, there is a gift shop, food store, butchers, cafe and a caravan and camping section.
Mark wanted to treat me to this lovely candle lamp and after a lot of umming and ahhing I finally chose violet.
Then we bought steak and burgers for our supper.
And some ham from the deli counter plus a toffee cake to go with our afternoon cuppa. I'm not a fan of bought cake but this was delicious.
I also managed to sit down and do some knitting and now have a little stash of dolly bonnets. In the evening we had a drive over to the arcade at Lytham and a walk along the front.
This morning Catriona and her husband came to 'visit' us. What a lovely couple they are. We were mid 'packing up' so they saw us in all our glory. Myself with no makeup (aargh!), Mark in his shorts, (think knobbly knees) and of course Thomas in his PJ's. We had a long easy going chat and being able to put a face and voice to any future comments will be lovely.
Glug Glug has been put away now for a couple of weeks. Next weekend Thomas has a birthday party to go to and we are going out for a meal with Matthew and Sophie.
After a few weeks of excitement and unforeseen events, touch wood everything seems back to normal now and this week my main priority will be catching up with some housework, my fave blogs and of course a little bit of quilting may well be squeezed in.
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. I'll be popping by to say hello to you all tomorrow.
