What happened on Friday?? Must admit you lot are not very nosy at the moment are you???? LOL

Well, between Wednesday and Friday I got 3 bouquets of flowers, an orchid (that I've no idea how to look after), 8 boxes of choccies, a 'Body Shop' goodie bag AND a bottle of wine!!!  Why??? Because yesterday this Tatty OG did her very last 'full time' lollypopping!!!  I'd had enough!  So I handed in me notice to leave.  16 years of being out in all weathers, in traffic fumes, ignorant car drivers that refuse to stop even though it's a pedestrian crossing, etc.... is enough to get anyone mad!!!  Between that and not having enough time to 'shop' in town during the day, during the week, or not being able to go for a 'girlie' lunch without clock watching, and having to take holidays when there are loads of OP's kids around AND I have to pay over the odds to do it is just silly!  So, I quit!  I'll happily stand in for if others are off, but it'll be on my terms not theirs!

I guess that means I'm essentially 'retired'!

Last night we went to Classics in the Park! Hull symphony orchestra, soloists, a rendition of some Shakespeare, and the park  version of Last night of the proms! 

Sir got rather merry... Not surprised after a bottle of beer and a bottle of wine! Me? Designated driver!! No alcohol!!!

Right off to play some more with beads for that bracelet set!!

    1. Oh yes! There's nothing shy or retiring about this Tatty Old Pigmini!!!

  2. I bet you will be missed and whats more you will miss the children , but quite understand why you handed in your notice. Enjoy all the extra free time!

  3. Enjoy your retirement - lots of extra time for tatting and travelling and baby snuggling.

  4. I've never heard the term "lolly popping" I assume it means crossing guard. Cute term. Have fun in Italy.
