Well my holiday is coming to a end and just the weekend to go…. and looking back over the week its been busier than i might have imagined… Continue reading
I know now, I’ve mentioned bingo a few times so it sounds like a hobby, its honestly not. Often its a way of making money, gambling i hear you cry, you will never make money, and in fairness, not from the bingo…. Continue reading
Another busy, but less busier than the rest, day. A bit of tidying, some laundry, some work, and a few phone calls see’s the day out. Tonight was regular touch rugby night, and the weather through a small spanner in the works, Continue reading
I was clearing some photos from my phone and stumbled across this from Monday’s day of bingo and drink. I’d forgotten about it…
Tuesday normally is gym or swim with the old man but today, he was tired having helped a neighbour with some building work. from this, last minute he decided no swim. Plan b – now tv and a film.
mistake one, his choice
mistake two, watching it to the end.
I received a cold call from the bank that liked to say yes, but now is the return of the local bank. Normally, i wouldn’t bother, and would generally decline what ever the great sales opportunity is…but on holiday and sorting stuff out, i thought it might not hurt to see what they had to say. Just back from a surprisingly positive catchup- and it appears i can reduce the price of the mortgage and gain some cashback! No fees or charges, so it seems a no brainer. I going to crunch the numbers and see how I get on….
I will let you know.
So holiday Mk2 started with bingo in south shields, not to be repeated, then drinks in south shields before moving north via the ferry. That all worked out well and during my round, i managed 3 pints for £5.80. We worked our way up to the Tynemouth and drank out way around the village. Then as time get on, time to get back to the ferry. A long walk, at pace, and we got there to find it closed. Who would have thought last ferry at 6. A long walk uphill to north shields metro for a long, long metro ride back to my home town and then a 20 minute walk.
Tired now, back on the sofa, and now nearly time for bed. The day was good fun, but appointment at the bank for the morning…
Its under rated, just watching the world go by… I find my self with a Grande cafe latte watching the world go by with some jazz playing in the background. All part of the bingo prep… Its what you do clearly ?
Its been one of those days already, with an early start even though no alarm was set. Normally, the alarm wakes me at 7 and I fall out of bed by 730…. But today, holiday! No need to be awake so the alarm was set firmly to off. Did it make a difference? In a word no. I woke up at 7 and have struggled since.
Its not so much a busy day, but i’ve got things to do, BIngo to win, pints to drink…..
It could be a long day….
