Wherefore Art Thou My Bargains?

The difference between light and hard is that you can sleep with a light on - Anon
Welcome to a wet Hump of the Week🐪
*2000th blog post*
 My dad's death announcement in the local newspaper↓
We all enjoyed a rare mid-week lie-in...
Closely followed by:
 Warm hug & cup of tea!
We all got up and out of the house↓
 Quick look in the newspaper↓
Smokey  Robinson, American R&B and soul singer-songwriter (The Miracles),is 80 years old🎈
Lou Christie, is an American singer-songwriter best known for three separate strings of pop hits in the 1960s, including his 1966 hit "Lightnin' Strikes".He is 77 years old 🎈
 It was starting to rain again.
We get to Stratford Upon Avon...
We made sure we got a ticket ↓
 
 Off to the first Charity Shop.
I got 4 1960's CDs for £2!
I got talking about "Sounds of the 60s" on a Saturday morning to the staff.
"I won't be getting up that early for Tony Blackburn!" One said.
Off to visit more Charity shops.
 
 
 I walk into the next Charity Shop,
Then I started singing along..↓
People was looking at me, I carried on singing along.
Once the song finished,
I left the shop.
I moved on to the next Charity shop
and found a great book↓
  They was song, which I had to sing along with↓
Looked around a bit more↓
 
 The water is still up↗↗↗
 
 Lunchtime↓
 Let's have a look in Laura Ashley↓
 
 
 
 I got a bargain↓
 Nice shoes↓
 Nice↓
We then moved onto a great place↓
They had some great stuff↓
 
 
 
 I got some nice stuff↓
 
 We drop it off home.
Then we go round to my dad's house.
Utterly heartbreaking.
The heart has been ripped out :(
The flowers and cards:
Back home for coffee and nibble↓
 I managed to salvage some photos...↓
 My dad with his grandson↑
My dad sorting out the land he just bought↑
 Me opening up a xmas present in the 70s↑
 My late mum on her wedding day↑
Some of the lovely things I bought from Stratford Upon Avon↓

The cake stand I paid £8 (instead of £30) is being used! Nice bit of bling↓

 Then off to the Happy Place Of Work
Tea was ready when I got back↓
  We finished off the banana cake↓
 Off to do more work with some great tunes to sing along with↓
 
Back home to kick off the steaming hot rollers↓
Now to use my warm hands to their full use on hubby!
