Oh Dear, Someone Has A Lead Foot!

 The best way to spoil a good story is by sticking to the facts. - Author: Evan Esar
Welcome to my Saturday 📦📦📦
Nice hug with brew.
One son up ready for work.
Now out of the house we go.
Before he goes into work, we nip into a Second hand shop to look for a wooden cane.
Gets one, and it's free!
Then onto Argos to get more storage boxes.
Then onto the Storage place.
First storage room was 35 sq feet.
"Too small,"I said closing the door.
Next was 70 sq feet.
I scoffed at that...
"Too small!"
Next was 100 sq feet.
I got it for the price of 80 sq foot.
(I have a filling it's going to be too small, we shall see!)
Now to get the newspaper with a bit of nibble to tide us over....
Bacon with black pudding......
Once we finished that.
Nice to trip to Bromsgrove Argos....
To get more Storage boxes...
It was like pulling teeth, waiting to be served.
Finally got my storage boxes!
We nipped into one charity shop.
We got the first 3 series of 
Then to get a padlock.
Now back home to start on the loft!
Two piles to start with.
Tip or Storage.
Hubby done one trip to the Storage unit.
When he came back,
I went to pick up son from his job.
This is where is gets interesting.
One boy racer in his white Skoda Fabia, didn't want to get stuck behind me driving a red Skoda Fabia.....
We were at the traffic lights together in a nice line.
Green light, off I went, little boy didn't like that!
Down went the lead foot, overtook me in his lane, then crossed back into my lane at the roundabout.
Then I was behind him all the way to my son's workplace, shaking my head and singing along.
Picked son, and back home we went.
Hubby filled up his car.
Then for a cold drink..
As it was getting well warm!
Back home to load up car for another trip to the Storage unit....
That is after two car loads.
When hubby came back, 
Time for a much needed light tea.
I even found a good book to read that came from the loft.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then it was time to watch the big film.....
Quick look into today's newspaper.

James Frederick "Jimmie" Rodgers was an American singer and actor. Rodgers had a run of hits and mainstream popularity in the 1950s and 1960s. His string of crossover singles ranked highly on the Billboard Pop Singles, Hot Country and Western Sides, and Hot Rhythm and Blues Sides charts; in the 1960s, Rodgers had more modest successes with adult contemporary music.  
He would have been 88 years old 🎈
He died aged 87 in 2021
Sleep Tea time.
Now off to bed as more clearing of the loft tomorrow!
