So I booked tickets for my friend and I to see the Mousetrap on Friday 12th July at 7.30. The tickets arrived yesterday and I was about to file them in a safe place (that I will probably forget) when I saw the message PLEASE CHECK YOUR TICKETS. I so nearly ignored this as usual but something just made me check whilst laughing at myself for bothering. Just as well I did – I appear to have booked the matinee on Saturday 13th! I’m sure in is their mistake but we’ll go with it 🤣🤣

Watching Blues Brothers tonight in Aretha Franklin scene and I say:
“I bet that bloke at the back is really playing that trumpet and he hardly gets notice.
Mark: Playing what?
Me: oh the trombone
Mark: the what?
Me: A saxophone …?
Bingo. Third time lucky. All hail to Lou Marini for teaching me my instruments!
Summer is finally here and once again I am tempted by the lure to purchase a helicopter chair. I did look at one in QD window last year, I even got in it and everything in the window display went flying, as did we.
Grabbed some gammon steaks, petit pois and Patatas Bravas for tea. Shoved the potatoes in the oven and dutifully stirred them 20 minutes into cooking. And found the sauce sachets I was supposed to remove 😂😂😂
I was having a declutter and sorting through my underwear draws when I found a lacy little number. Marks response? Aren’t you a bit old for that? I threw it out along with all my tights and hold ups that I hadn’t worn for over a year, keeping back just one pair of black hold ups. I put them in my swimming bag to get into following my early morning swim. All went well until I stated to walk and they gradually worked their way down. Luckily I had my Bridget Joneses on so I kept hoiking them up and tucking them in until I could get to the shop. I still had a slightly Nora Batty look though!
Popped into Aldi for chicken, 4 bottles cider and something else that I can’t now remember! Stopped at that as had left 50 carrier bags in the car and wasn’t buying another one. Put my goods on the conveyor belt and ….. picked up 3 bags of popcorn and 3 bags of pea snaps. It took me a while to realise, as I juggled back to the car, why I had enough hands before paying but not enough after. I got to my car and put the goods on the ground. Bugger. Where are my keys? Pushed everything under the car to try and hide it and was just about to go back into the shop when I noticed my wing mirrors were out. I’d left the car unlocked and there in the ignition were my keys. Phew. Luckily nobody has nicked it. Went to back seat to get a carrier bag, went to put bottles of cider in and dropped and smashed one when I heard a mans voice from inside my car. Oh yeah. I forgot. I’d left mark in their talking to his mate on the phone. Think I’m getting worse!
Whilst watching Pointless, one of the contestants gave Guyana as their answer. Richard Osman replied “Yes. That country named after James Garner of course” to which I responded “Really? I never knew that”
