Picked up boxes from Argos.

We did the shopping.
Back home to unload it all.
Light lunch.
Now to start making room for everything.
Found the Return Back to Work Form from my old lollipop job from 4/7 2018.
I just returned to work after having 8 months off due to my foot injury.
I was only back to work for 2 weeks.
As I asked on the form,
Can I come back in September?
I found out sometime soon after I broke up for the 6 weeks holidays, I was up for redundancy.
My last day was Aug 31st.
Pity one arm don't talk to the other leg and they paid me for September. So after they clawed back the overpayment, I was left with £100 redundancy money! 
More moving about in the Living room!
We ran out of room to put the DVDs.
We made room on top of hubby's wardrobe!
All the minions were put together.
After all this moving about,
Time for a stiff drink!
We had some party food to go along with it.
Quick look in the newspaper:
US No.1 on this day in 1966:

We caught up Gordon...
I wasn't going to keep awake up to midnight.
I kept yawning....
Off to bed I went.

(As we are going travelling alot in 2023.
Some of the places we are going to are:
 Las Vegas, Australia, and going on the train to Scotland in 2023)
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
