I had an unusually busy day today, I saw the optician for my yearly retinopathy screening, then my doctor for a prescription revue then my hairdresser for my bi yearly haircut then a trip to the pharmacy to collect my pills. If I wasn't dying I would have nothing to do.
Well worked today 10 till 6 so missed out on the lovely sunshine,had some people who work the fair in today and they said they had lost a lot of money yesterday with the rain.Nice people but looking at the cars they drive I could not feel too sorry for them LOL. Nobody normally parks on the road where I work as it leads to the car park and is very narrow,the Fair people decided to park along it mounted upon the pavement,half on,leaving no room to walk on it. We managed to get a couple of orange bollard things off the council to keep our entrance clear.Council workmen turned up took the bollards away and the road closed sign so traffic coming down thinking the car park was open .The fair is still on it so chaos so happened.I asked counci workmen to put signs back plus bollards,But love they said we can,t our boss told us to remove them,does your boss expect you to use your common sense I asked ??Half an hour later they managed to get boss on the mobile while watching bedlam happening.I had to laugh,it was like something off the telly.............Brains is short supply these days.
I saw the Hewro a few weeks back and although I have often seen him in the distance it was the first time I had been so close.Glad you liked my snap.
Good morning all, it's June already. a nice sunny start to the day. no excuse for Lyn not to do her Garden. I'm off to put my bin bags out and face the world with whatever it want's to throw at me. What are you up to today John, I know you won't be far away.

Morning SB, I'm over the road in the pub, painting a stage and putting new floorboards down, then off to the seafront to do some drawings for a theatre sign,then I'm having lamb stew for lunch, and then I'll be bored until tomorrow.
