No Dance Monday!

Life is a foreign language; all men mispronounce it.
 - Christopher Morley
Welcome to my Monday \o/
No Wobbly Work Wheel to mount today, due to my Inflammed knee still!
At least the brew tastes a lot better!
Brew with hug.
Breakfast.
Dressed.
Hubby went and got the newspaper for me.
There was some nice clouds above the house.
I gave hubby a nice wet sloppy πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
Our kids had the same πŸ’‹πŸ’‹
The house was so empty and quiet once everyone had left.
Coffee
&
Read of the newspaper.

Bilk's 1962 instrumental tune "Stranger on the Shore" became the UK's biggest selling single of 1962: it was in the UK charts for more than 50 weeks, peaking at number two, and was the second No. 1 single in the United States by a British artist in the era of the modern Billboard Hot 100 pop chart. He died on this day in 2014  aged 85.
  I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Then I had to make a patch for my son's trousers.
Afterwards I had put sewn it on, 
I might put a pocket over it instead.
I will see how son feels about it when he comes back later.
I had some infacing arrive in the post,
with some more material to play with.
 A late lunch.
I sorted out all my craft themed books out.
 
I haven't looked into the cupboard containing a lot of cook books....
(I will save that for another day) 
I watched Boris in Parliament while having my 
Tea at 3. 
Our children came home.
Told me all about their school day \o/ 
30% off meals at McDonalds.
That's tea sorted out for tonight.
£7 off the bill.
Hubby went with one son to fetch it.
We carried on watching the semi-final of season 3 of Hell's Kitchen.
The final was in two parts.
Rock was the winner.
Sleep tea time.
Just when I think my knee is getting better.
More bruises appear and my foot starts to swell up!
Roll on Tuesday!

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!
