Good morning......

I am here to join in with Annie's Friday smiles......a super week with the sunshine meant a trip to LLandudno with my friend Jean on Tuesday
It was sooo funny, just after this picture was taken a couple came along eating ice-cream cones..... it was like slow motion but to fast to shout or get a photo.... a massive seagull came from behind them, looked down, stole her cone as she still had ice cream in and left his!!! none of us could believe it lol...
On Thursday I took my granddaughter for a job interview, a big step from a care home assistant to health care in a male prison in Manchester....... a nerve-wracking 2 hours went by as we called for lunch on the way home..... and then she got a call to say she had got the job !! More money, good conditions, and a contract with shorter hours, she is over the moon. We also sussed out train and bus links after the interview just in case.
This is us in Llandudno 4 weeks ago.....
 On Saturday, I have a day out in Yorkshire planned with my grandson and his girlfriend, so looking forward to that and hopefully some pictures next week lol
Thanks for dropping by and have a good week
