You Know You Want It!

If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it - J.P Morgan
 Welcome to my Sunday ๐ŸŽŠ
No lie-in this morning...
Hug with brew.
Collects the shopping trolley and tickets for the show, and off we go.
Parks in the car park near the hall we are going to visit.
Someone is already in the Christmas Mood...
Show both of my Covid Vaccine cards.
I was given a orange wristband.
Now off to the show...
We have another wristband for being VIP.
We go off to the VIP stand for a coffee and nibble.
They didn't have the blue milk which I have, as green milk doesn't do my stomach much good.
I had to choose between soya or green milk...
Wish I had bought my own milk now...
Now to look around the show.
£10 for half a metre.
I asked "If he was on-line?"
"Nope," He said.
I carried on looking, further up the aisle, was some lovely fabric. Bargain price.
I found a Janome sewing machine I was interested in.
There was already £100 off it on the internet.
They wouldn't knock anymore off because they were at the show.
I carried on round to the Brother Sewing Machine instead.
They had the sewing machine I was looking for.
Only £180 cheaper then the Janome.
 Plus a £150 Quilting Kit was thrown in as well.
The only problem was DPD was going to deliver it....
"I sure you won't have no problems with the delivery with DPD",The Salesman said.
"You will be the first one to find out if I do have problems with the delivery!" I laughed.
We looked around the  Simply Christmas event, and couldn't wait to leave.....
We went to look around the Cake International Event.
I did put a cake in back in 2013...
Shaun the Sheep and Friends in Halloween Costumes.
Now for more pictures of cake...
Back to get our final coffee with a bit of cake.
 Once eaten.
 We walked back to the car.
I was so glad of some fresh air!
Once we got back, I unpacked the trolley.
Now for some much needed lunch.
Out again to check the tyre pressures of Sexy Beast.
Once that was done, I covered up Sexy Beast.
The tumble drier went on, after the washing machine had been on twice.
Showers were taken by everyone.
Hubby put the tea in the oven.
Now two more episodes left of Narcos:Mexico series 3.
We finished the whole series by 10pm!
Sleep Tea time.
Back on that Wobbly Work Wheel๐ŸŽก

Can't Even Sing In My Own Car!

 A boob job is the gift that keeps on giving.My ex bought them and my new guy enjoys them - Elaine Pelino
Welcome to my Saturday ๐Ÿ’บ
The alarm went off, and "Sounds of the 60s" was on. However I didn't take out my ear plugs so I missed it!
Nice warm hug with brew.
The teddy duvet cover is going on later, as there is nothing worst getting into a cold bed at night!
Out of the house to drop of son at work.
I was happly singing along with Phil in Sexy Beast.
Son moaned about my singing in my OWN CAR.
He might have to walk to work in the future....
Now onto Dunelm..
Picks up curtain rail and laundry bin.
Nice sofa but I'm happy with my one. Then off to Wickes to pick up some yellow plastic bins for some D.I.Y that's going to go on in my house shortly...
Back home...for coffee
Hubby takes down the old curtain rail.
I get the sewing machine out.
Bacon sandwich before I start!
I sew on another layer to the bathroom curtains.
The Delivery men arrived with the new washing machine.
They took the old one out and plumbed the new one.....
Now to put it on...
I finished the curtain that is going up in the Living Room.
The curtain that is going up in Bedroom window.
Hubby and son went shopping.
(He will finish putting up the curtain rail tomorrow)
I made two draught excluders.
Hubby came back with the shopping.
Younger son went round to give his neighbour's shopping.
Once the shopping was put away.
Time for tea.
We had only one magic bag to fetch.
It was from Waitrose.
I finally read a whole week's newspapers in one go.
I put the teddy duvet cover back on the bed.
We caught up with two episodes of "Hell's Kitchen"
Sleep Tea time.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic  is an American singer, musician, record producer, and actor who is known for humorous songs that make light of pop culture and often parody specific songs by contemporary musical acts. He also performs original songs that are style pastiches of the work of other acts, as well as polka medleys of several popular songs, most of which feature his trademark accordion.  
He is 62 years old ๐ŸŽˆ
Bernard  Jewry , known professionally as Shane Fenton and later as Alvin Stardust, was an English rock singer and stage actor. Performing first as Shane Fenton in the 1960s, Jewry had a moderately successful career in the pre-Beatles era, hitting the UK top 40 with four singles in 1961–62. However, he became better known for singles released in the 1970s and 1980s as Alvin Stardust, a character he began in the glam rock era, with hits including the UK Singles Chart-topper "Jealous Mind", as well as later hits such as "Pretend" and "I Feel Like Buddy Holly". 
He died on this day in 2014 aged 72.
Now to get warm under that Duvet Cover!
