Breaking In The New Duvet Cover......

It is by acts and not by ideas that people live - Anatole France.
Welcome to my Saturday๐Ÿฟ
We had a tiny lie-in.
Followed by brew and hug↓
 Breakfast.
Dressed.
Off for a quick ride to town↓
 We parked in Car Park 7
(As Car Park 4 was still closed)
 
  We put on our face masks.
I wore the one I made yesterday.

We get the newspaper from WHSmiths.
Body Shop is now closed in the shopping centre!
I gets two lovely balloons 
(And they are blown up too)
On the way to get a much needed Costa Coffee.
I see a ex-boyfriend sitting down in Costa Coffee.He had took his mask off and I recognised him straight away...
I went out with him in 2000.
He is nicknamed "The Creature" as he put my hamster down the toilet out of spite, when I rewound a video he hadn't finished watching.
When I finished work, I found the poor hamster in the toilet, I carefully gave him a wash, and dried him off. The poor thing sadly died a few days later....I hope Karma visits him after 20 years..... 
I had my mask on, he kept looking at me stood over by the exit, I just turned my head.
We walked back to the car park, to drink our coffee.
 It is still getting warm↓
 I put the new balloons on my parent's grave↓
  My younger brother has bought a bench to sit on opposite their grave↓↓
 We sat on it for a good half an hour.
Nice view of the grave from there↓
