In The Middle Of Nowhere!

 It works better if you plug it in - Sattinger's Law
Welcome to my Thursday in Bidford 🚗
A lovely hug and brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet 💋 before he went to work.
Now to round up the kids.....
Off to Bidford we go...
The sun was there to greet us...
Parked on the field.
One of my kids said what not to say.
"It looks like you are not going to buy nothing off here, mum!"
I bought a Nutcracker soldier shaped like a Russian Doll.
Someone was selling a vase with fake flowers with lights.
We guessed the price...
One son was spot on with £20.
The woman said She would lower it down to £18 if I wanted it.
"It was £63 from The Range!" She bellowed at me.
I looked down at the plug and said "No" and walked off."
Next it was the CD man....
Loads of 1950s and 1960s CDs.
The kids had their 80's CDs and war songs.
Moving on,
I got the following DVDS.
Das Boot The original uncut version Digitally remastered = 4 hrs + 42 mins.
The King and I
Educating Rita
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Collector's Edition of The Untouchables
Kick-Ass 2 on Blu-Ray.
It took us 45 minutes to walk all around it.
We walked back around again, altogether it took us another 25 minutes.
I needed coffee...
Off the field we went.
Onwards to the nearest McDonalds.
Back home to unpack all the goodies!
More coffee needed!
I was supposed to have something delivered by DPD this morning...
As normal, he couldn't be bothered to find me and leave it the shed, took back to the depot again.
I have now asked to be delivered to a shop in the town centre tomorrow instead of it going back to the depot again!
Tea at 3.
I writes yesterday's blog post.
Once published, now to carry on with making the tea....
Hubby comes home and has a sloppy wet 💋
Tea is served.
Now to look in the today's newspaper.

Cabbage or Beans?

You have no idea how much it costs to look this cheap
 - Dolly Parton
Welcome to my Thursday car boot visit....🚗
I woke up earlier than normal.
I left sleeping beauty to carry on with his beauty sleep.
I enjoyed a cup of tea and the quiet!
As soon as the alarm went off, hubby was up!
Breakfast followed.
Now to leave the house for our car trip to Bidford Car Boot.
Can't park by the river for nothing now.
We go off to look around the car boot.
Lots of lovely things including plants!
I bought 2 kinds of runner beans plants...
We walked around the car boot twice.
Gets back to the car.
Coffee time!
Then off to walk around along the river.
I was having trouble with DPD again.
They delivered somewhere else and not at my house. The same woman from DPD phoned me up,(from yesterday) and I asked the parcel could be redelivered to my house.It will be, she replied.
I had to nip into Waitrose to get some milk.
Back home.
Gets all the plants out of the car.
Lots of parcels arrived for me,
Including my DPD order...
I repotted my beans and plants.
I opened the bag which contained the other kind of runner beans..
That isn't runner beans...that's Cabbage!
We had light lunch and chilled in the garden.
Then it's time to get ready for work.
Big tunes time...
Gets into work.
It's warm in there...
Even had a quick play with hoover!
I was well warm when I finished.
Now for much big tunes..
Back home.
Nice tea.
Loving the sky at night...
The plants by my front door are looking good.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
