Welcome to the start of the weekend .... and (of course) the Friday Funny!

Morning all
Well, the weekend is almost upon us ... got plans?
We have "the surrogates" due to join us for a BBQ this evening so we're hoping for nice weather!! Wish us luck with that as we're not lucky with BBQ weather!

Had a busy old week one way and another with coffee with pals twice this week, drinkies with another and a crafters meet (for lunch and shopping) yesterday. I met the lovely Jan (who's from the N.E. of the U.K. so you can imagine why we've not met before) however, she was on her way to Cardiff for work so we decided we would meet up for lunch. We met at a restaurant I know and where we had a very nice (and quick - part of their "express" menu) lunch and then decided to head off to Hobbycraft for a quick spot of retail therapy .... It has to be said that Jan had more success than I did - I just bought two stamps .... total spend £4!!! After a wander about we returned to the restaurant, where Jan had left her car. We thought we were still OK for time so we stopped for another beverage and more chat which was lovely - we were able to sit outside in the "garden" and we prevailed upon a friendly staff member to take this shot of the two of us

GOTCHA! Caught you shopping!

My shopping - such as it is .... and no, I don't NEED any more Christmas stamps but ......
I blame Wynneth's wand!
I had a lovely afternoon thank you so much Jan, we got on pretty well and I hope we can do it again sometime in the not too distant future too. Maybe we'll take in Dandiecrafts next time!

And now for the Friday Funny, this week it comes to you courtesy of Wynneth, who's husband may ONCE have been that little boy playing with his trains ....... except he would never have used that kind of language, bless him!
I know it's an "oldie" but I like it.......
A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old son playing with his new electric train set in the living room.

She heard the train stop and her son saying, 'All of You B*****ds who want off, get off now, 'cos we're in a hurry! And all of you B*****ds who are getting on, get on now, 'cos we're going down the tracks'.

The horrified mother went in and told her son, 'We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language.'

Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom and resumed playing with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, 'All passengers those who are disembarking the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for travelling with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one.'

She hears the little boy continue, 'For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today.'

As the mother began to smile, the child added..........

'For those of you who are pissed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please see the fat controller in the kitchen!!!!!.

Want more Friday Funny? Head here and check out Hettie's funny today, though she's usually a smidge later than mine.

Have a fabulous Friday

Know what you mean!! Our local forecast (yesterday) said it should brighten up here as the day goes on ..... but, ever sceptical, we have an alternate plan - just in case!

Hope you have your BBQ OK, plan B would be just as good I'm sure!

Hugs, Di xx
