Wholesalers Part II

Following last night’s motoring disaster Debbie came round with a couple of Bacardi & Cokes followed by a sample of vodka blue while I continued with my stash of Bodingtons. The new vodka blue must have hit the chuckle spot ‘cos Debbie was chuckling all night long …lol…

This morning, not wanting to ever get behind the wheel of Debbie’s car again, we set off to the warehouse in my little car. Debbie’s little Yaris is a dream to drive but because my little Seicento is such a different car to drive, I struggle sometimes when just hopping behind the wheel for the odd weekend.

This time, I came off at the right exit on the roundabout and we got all the flowers that we needed for Debbie’s bouquet. From there we zoomed up the M1, well we were zooming until we hit traffic trying to get on the M62. Eventually we made it to the factory outlet place at Castleford. We didn’t get what we were after there, just a nice top for £1.99 …lol…

Onwards then to Pontefract, the home of Haribo and liquorice. We had a bit of a walk round and picked up some bargains, although the butties we had in the new buttie shop chain were anything but bargains.

Then we were back home for an hour before going out again and picking up some tea from KFC, everyone knocks this place but it’s always busy….maybe everyone’s in disguise so they’re not recognised and we’re the only ones not in on it…lol…

We’re back at the ranch again and Debbie’s working on her bouquet, which is looking fabulous already. Debbie’s on vodka blue again so I’m waiting for the chuckling to start behind me ..lol… I’m on Somerset scrumpy cider for a change which is going down a treat. We’re just waiting for Saturday Night Takeaway to start because this is good, old fashioned, proper, bonkers, Saturday night entertainment!
