Trying To Find The Odd Bargain!

My husband said he needed more space. So I locked him outside - Roseanne
Welcome to my Saturday...
I enjoyed  a cup of tea and a snuggle in bed. 
 I even got to hear the final hour of "The Sound of the 60s"!
We all got up and out of the house by 9.30am. as we were off to Droitwich.
 Of course it had to rain!
We go and see what bargains are at the Droitwich Lions.
While my hubby takes one of my sons to his Boxing Lesson. My other son and me look around the charity shops in the rain.
 Stopping under cover.
We had been in all of the charity shops.
I only bought 3 things...
 We looked in Waitrose and got some bargains.
On the way to meet hubby, there was a nice car parked outside Waitrose↓
 
 Waved goodbye to Waitrose
 &
The church on the hill↓
 Nice nibble to eat↓
 Unpacked my items I bought.
 While hubby went to fetch our son from his boxing lesson.
I put the curtain up over the front door.
 Our son came back with the new boxing gloves I bought him.
 (Early Christmas present)
My lunch↓
 Then we had a ride out to Bromsgrove to look in their Charity Shops.
Oh dear, we only bought one DVD and Kevin the Carrot cup.
Hubby nearly lost his ticket to get out of the car park. The rain wasn't helping either!
Back home to have tea!
 Jay Black, American singer (Jay and the Americans),is 81 years old 🎈
