Always Bring A Trolley,Never A Bag..

A Penny saved is a penny earned - English Proverb
No chance of a lie in..
We listened to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed with a cup of tea...
So many things to do and places to visit...
Out of the house...↓
 Popped into see Grumpy Granddad.
Then off to see Jeffery↓

 Off to see the Droitwich Lions.
They couldn't believe the stuff I got.
I said, "I have cleared you out,that's why I always bring a trolley never a bag!" 
All for £13↑
We moved the car to where I parked yesterday.
 
 We did some charity shop looking and buying bargains.
We rested out feet in the Library.
 Nice car I bought..
(To go with the other two I have)
 On our way to our final charity shop
 We nipped into Waitrose, and got a yellow sticker lunch...↓
 Now to do my dad's shopping↓
 Back home.
 My car collection↓
 All the bargains we got from the Charity Shops↓

I hope life isn't a big joke,because I don't get it - Jack Handey
I had a night without ear plugs....

 Gave hubby a big ๐Ÿ’‹ before he left for work.
I meanwhile had to get up as I was off for a visit to the hospital...
Sun was coming up when I left.
 
 It didn't take too long to the hospital.
I think I missed the rush hour...
 As it was getting warm,

 If I am very lucky, I could be out in 20 minutes and not pay the £2.50 parking charge!
I gets in, picks a number, before I could whip my phone out to take the photo of it, I was called in. Blood taken, and out I went.
