Getting In & Trying It Out!

Nobody realises that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal - Albert Camus

 Boxing Day
Welcome to my Saturday 👯
Going out for some fresh air and getting some bargains.
I was celebrating 7 years of being tea-total, with a cup of brew!
Breakfast.
We had a bit of lie-in afterwards.
Then it was time to get up!
Both kids got up.
Taking out Sexy Beast... 
Nipped into Dunelm..
Filled up Sexy Beast with bargains.
Off to see mum and dad...
I see my younger brother had dropped off a wreath↑
I had a quick chat with my parents, before heading off home.
Light lunch.
Quick read of the newspaper.
Now to abuse Disney+
Followed by:
 Belated Tea at 3.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Tea time.
Finished off some of the turkey from yesterday. 
Now to enjoy some Sewing Bee.
Once we watched that.
We had something to catch up that we had recorded early on in the month.
Hubby had put the new duvet cover on the bed I had bought earlier.
I had to wait 3 years for it to be in the sale.
Sleep Tea time.
Now to try out the new duvet cover \o/
Let's turn off the light....

Getting Them Bargains In!

It took me 15 years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous

Welcome to my Boxing Day!
It is the Sixth anniversary of me being Tea-Total 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

That would look nice in my bedroom if I had room↓
 
 Then off to town to get more bargains.
The view from Car Park 4↓
 I gave 5 plastic empty items into Bodyshop.
They don't do the £5 voucher no more :( :(
Got some items from there in their sale.
 I went into Debenhams and got another bargain↓
I saw a long queue to get into Pandora shop.
Then off to get some bits from Wilkinsons↓
While I was paying for my items in HMV,
I noticed a Manfred Mann boxset for £45↓
 Oh I was so tempted....
(I resisted)
Back home to unpack my bargains from HMV↓
Now onto my Dunelm order↓
 I enjoyed a Picnic↓

As all the males of the households have coughs, and feeling shit!
Hubby tried to do tea without the Turkey that was left!
(Nice try!)
Back on the turkey we go...

A Little Bit Of ABC....

“Did you ever notice that life seems to follow certain patterns? Like I noticed that every year around this time, I hear Christmas music.”– Tom Sims

Boxing Day
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
We had a nice lie-in again↓
Hubby's dad didn't have a good night's sleep on the sofa.
I said hello to Sexy Beast, while hubby made to Bacon Sandwiches for all of us..
 After we ate breakfast.
Time to bring along the great CD to listen to while we drop off hubby's dad.
 
I go off to do my job for a few hours.
I came back and finished making the Trifle.
I had the bird tell me the Chicken and Leek Pie was ready..
I looked up the Birthdays: 
 Henning Schmitz: German musician (Kraftwerk) is 65 years old.
Curtis Mayfield:American singer-songwriter and soul musician (Freddie's Dead, Superfly)
dies aged 57 in 1999.
 Dave Brubeck Quartet: formally disbands in 1967.
 We then watch the first episode of:
So good I bought the book off Amazon with £5 off...
Then we watched 3 episodes of "Bullseye".
The first episode, no one won the caravan,
second episode won the speedboat.
We taped the third episode
