Day 962 I dot the told but had a good day at the little gift shop 🎁🎄

Remember that lovely Caramel Waffle Latte yesterday?! I mean it was soooo good.

Caffeine free?

What do you reckon? You know me well enough by now. I forgot to ask for decaf.

Time for pipe band style drumming of the heart… 3.15am.

Wide. Awake.

I took cold and flu tablets before bed which were working just fine until I woke up. I got up to blow my nose and put Vicks Vaporub on my top lip. Great idea until it burns 🥵

I had already decided not to go to the Farm using the cold as an excuse. I know it’s just an excuse as we are perfectly capable of working out with a head cold, just not a chest cold. I didn’t go to sleep until after 11pm which is a real luxury for me. So by 3.15am I’d only had about 4 hours sleep.

I did fall back asleep finally until 7.15.am.

I get so caught up in not wanting real milk that I totally forget the decaf thing, every time. Unless someone is there like Mum or Claire screaming “DECAF” over my shoulder. 😆

Gayle bought me my own little jar of decaf coffee for the shop too so I’ve no excuse there. 🥳

I have vouchers to spend in the little gift shop today. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I will actually get to buy some of the things I’ve been eying up all these weeks.

The shop is looking super festive now that Gayle has done the Christmas windows…. And I have to say, this is not the best photo!

I love the bow and the door and Gayle did this all by herself!

Isn’t that just beautiful?

I watched her make a couple of bows for a lady today and it was fascinating. Isn’t it funny how we all have different skills?!? Gayle was wheeching those bows together so easily while I watched on with awe and wonder. I kept going on about talented she was and she kept putting it down to being so easy.

She’s a whizz! I of course took photos at every step 😂

So we had a good day but I was definitely flagging with the cold. It’s just a sniffly head cold but I feel quite wabbit with it. Gayle sent me to get some cold and flu stuff to help perk me up. It worked for a bit, I just have to keep taking it.

When I came home I popped into the pub as Craig was meeting a friend so I had a couple of Coke Zeros before heading home to get into my jammies and a super cosy hoodie! (Yeah I’m reading that back screaming CAFFEINE at myself….. 😆)

Do you remember I talked about the power outage the other night? How I took a call when they phoned to apologise and I said we weren’t affected by it and I reckoned I might have missed out on some apology payment?!? (Such a long sentence!)

We all got a £10 Amazon voucher and a box of chocolates delivered today!! I’ve never heard of that before.

So one last amazing bow!

She made that in under two minutes. 😳

So that’s all from me. Cosy, early night for me tonight as Claire and I are heading off on an 50th birthday surprise trip after work tomorrow! This birthday just keeps on giving. Exciting times!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
