How exciting! Tonight I made a start on a couple of the orders I’ve had in!
|First sale! |
It’s one from a set of 4 that I may have shown you before.
|How they start off!|
|Yes it does currently, which makes me snigger - but they are for twins - names B and O! I will finish the trimming tomorrow after work.|
|How cute are the little lights?!|
Said 1.38 on clock
Bus due 1.45
I thought I’ll get the bus be back before 2 - not long to wait
Then board said bus due 1.45 expt 1.47
Ok I thought
Then due 1.45 expt 1.48
I’m like ffs I could have walked it’s a 20minute brisk walk from town. However,
I was committed to bus travel by now thinking surely it’ll be here in a minute. There were middle class, middle aged people FEWMIN where ever you looked. The bus I was waiting for travelled through some vair naice villages….we ALL noticed the
Bus drivers hanging around - a gaggle of them - I wonder what the collective noun is for bus drivers haha
I was waiting for the number 55 , and the bus to the Lakes which also goes along where I need to be - number 555 was due at 2.15 - that pulled in very early at 1.59. It then sat there with bus driver n inspector chatting away in it with the door closed.
2.06 the 55 bus finally pulls in. The hard stare of 150 passengers was upon the poor GREEN HAIRED 12 year old driver who committed that heinous crime off ….when the last passenger gets off…closes the door …and opens his little cage door and….
Driver GET’S OFF! Man there’s gonna be a purple rinse led lynching. Me being me, tried to calm the rising dissent. I said to my closest bunch of allies that he might have been driving since 6am and this is his lunch break now.
YET the bunch of drivers standing about didn’t move. I’m now joining in with the muttering and discontent with the bus hungry wealthy folk. 🤣
Like why on earth was the replacement driver who was going to start at 1.45 NOT THERE??? Anyway
Finally, the loose change of drivers broke ranks and I swear he was shoved, but like a sacrificial lamb, a chap gingerly made his way through the crows, avoiding all eye contact but he was safe. We are British. It’s in our genes to tut and queue but to never actually say anything about it - anyway that brave little bus driver was cheered like an Olympic a gold Medal hero!!!
We were all safely loaded on, many of us still commenting about the delay. Not me mind!
I got to school at 2.15pm. So I didn’t want to creep into the Nativity and upskittle anything so I I went about my usual business until hometime.
At home I made two different chicken curries. One Indian using the tub of tikka masala sauce ready made for Slimming World by Iceland - so tasty and quick and easy. And one Chinese style with big chunks of onions, using a SW recommended Mayflower curry sauce mix. Really tasty, and a good store cupboard staple. We had the Indian one with some delicious mango chutney. Yum.
I think that’ll do for now. So much to record haha
Lots of love from Rachel *will definitely walk next time* Radiostar xxx
The ornaments are beautiful but poor little chap - I do hope he will be OK. His mum must be furious that it was dismissed so many times. xxReplyDelete
Love your ginger bread men, so cute. It's sad the children not getting the treatment early enough, Strep A is in the school next to Will's, we hope he stays safe, but with families, children from the same home go to the nursery, infants and juniors. As for bus drivers, we often have 2 buses here at the same time, and they don't rush on changeover.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear you are getting some orders at school for your wonderful ornaments! That poor little fellow with the rash... it sounds like your health care system is much like ours here in Canada. I play a similar game, every single morning, called Wordle. I have never gotten it in one, but did get it in two and took a screen shot of it! -JennReplyDelete
