Finally I Can Use It Again!

 If you can't take the heat, don't tickle the dragon - Scott Fahlman
Welcome to my Saturday 🐝
Nice hug with brew.
We listened to last hour of "Sounds of the 60s"
Breakfast.
Dressed.
I was hoping to go to Droitwich Lions and give in my late dad's glasses.
(They recycle them)
One son was up to be dropped off at work, the other son wouldn't get out of bed on time.
Hubby was staying at home to wait for the Washing Machine Engineer....
Off we go...
Drops off son, and onto Homebase I go.
Gets some bits I need.
Back home.
Unpacks car.
Coffee time.
Son still wants to go to the Droitwich Lions.
Collects bag of glasses.
Off to Droitwich we go.
Parks opposite Waitrose.
Goes over to see the Droitwich Lions.
They were glad off the glasses.
My son bought some maps of some countries.
I bought a jar of marmalade.
Then off to look in some Charity Shops...
We dropped the trolley back to the car.
Now to get some bits from Waitrose.
There were some nice cars parked outside.
Done a bit of shopping, now for trip home via Hanbury.
I picked up the other son from his job.
The Washing Machine Engineer arrived at my house the same time I got home.
He looked under the sink, the washing machine pipe was missing two washers!
He done the job in five minutes!
Now I can use my washing machine!
While I was away, hubby had been busy.
He went on the Spin bike for 40 minutes, and was watching Squid Games.
He swept up the leaves which covered the path,
He cut the lawn too :)
Now for another trip out...
I heard one of my favourite Christmas songs for the first time this Christmas period...
Gets some Christmas presents for our kids while we were there.
There was a nice E reg VW Polo in the car park.
Back home to hide the pressies.
Once we had tea.
Time to watch episode 3 of Season 3 of Narcos: Mexico.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Montserrat  CaballĂ©  was a Spanish operatic soprano. She sang a wide variety of roles, but is best known as an exponent of the works of Verdi and of the bel canto repertoire, notably the works of Rossini, Bellini, and Donizetti. She was noticed internationally when she stepped in for a performance of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia at Carnegie Hall in 1965, and then appeared at leading opera houses. Her voice was described as pure but powerful, with superb control of vocal shadings and exquisite pianissimo. 
Caballé became popular to non-classical music audiences in 1987, when she recorded, at the request of the International Olympic Committee, "Barcelona", a duet with Freddie Mercury, which became an official theme song for the 1992 Olympic Games. She received several international awards and also Grammy Awards for a number of her recordings.
She died on this day aged 85 in 2018.
Sleep Tea time.
We have already watched 8 episodes and only 2 left to watch tomorrow!
Off to walk about 4 miles tomorrow!
