I gave hubby a wet sloppy 💋 before he left for work.
Things to do this morning....

The sun was really bright.
Big big sunglasses time.
First stop was to get my newspaper from the Paper Shop.
Said hello to everyone in there.
Next port of call was to drop the documents at the Solicitors.
I waited in the car while son dropped them in.
Had some funny looks from someone who parked up from me. She gave me daggers when I drove off!
I tried to get a 50p coffee on the Costa Coffee app. No luck there.
Back home.
Kept trying to go on the app to just get 3 hot drinks.Kept crashing and the circle kept going round and round.
Washing machine went on.
If the sunshine carries on tomorrow,
The lollipop coat is going to be washed and hung out to dry....
I finally got the order for 3 hot drinks on the app  \o/
Back in Sexy Beast to collect them! 
I ordered 3 hot sandwiches from the snack van down the bottom of the road.
I had bacon and black pudding in my sandwich,
With a large Mocha!
The kids had various sandwiches with hot chocolates.
