Nutcracker Moments!

 If you can't see the humour in yourself, you could be missing the joke of the century - Dame Edna Everage.
Welcome to my wet Saturday ☔
9 Years ago, I started my first time as a Lollipop Lady.
I was made redundant after 4 years.
Year off.
Then back to be a Lollypop lady again in a different area.
My 4th Anniverday of that job is tomorrow \o/
Breakfast and Brew.
We listened to "The Sounds of the 60s"
UK Top 3 from 1967.

2: Bee Gees - Massachusetts
1: The Foundations - Baby, Now That I've Found You
Rain mac on.
Off to Droitwich we go...
We first park up and go in to visit the Droitwich Lions. Loads of books we got.
We then moved the car.
Off to explore Droitwich.
Now to look in the Charity Shops.
Off to have a coffee and nibble↓
We nipped into Waitrose for a look...
Back to the car.
Drove to Lidl's.
Done food shopping.
I nipped into B&M.
Nutcracker time!
On the way back home, hubby got some new wipers for his car.
Home time.
Unpacked all my bargains↓↓
Light lunch.
Tea at 3.
We caught up with 3 more episodes of Hell's Kitchen.
We had a nice tea.
Looked into today's newspaper.
Then we watched "Sly".
Next was James Whale.
We watched up to Headliners.

Off to a warm bed with a even warmer hubby.

Welcome to my bargain  Saturday 📬
Breakfast and Brew.
We listened to "The Sounds of the 60s"
UK Top 3 from 1962.

Picks up the shopping list.
Now out we go.
Off to a good place in Stratford upon Avon.
We gave in some things.
Now to look around...for bargains..
Lloyd loom time!
Put our bargains in the car.
Now to do some food shopping.
Once done.
Coffee and nibble time!
Back home we go...
Once home.
Unpacked the car.
Bargains from Stratford↓
While Hubby is putting the food shopping away.
I sort my Craft Room out and insert the nice bit of Lloyd Loom↓
No liquid lunch today.
With added coffee↓
Then to take something back to The Range.
We parks in Car Park 4.
First stop was to take our Christmas Decoration back to The Range for a refund. I got two woolly hats on the reduced stand.
However when I got to the till to pay them, it came up as full price not reduced.
Waited for 5 minutes for someone to help.
The woman who gave us a refund earlier, sorted it out :)
Next stop was WHSmith to get my newspaper.
No point going to self service, the till goes red when the voucher gets scanned.
Waits for the two customers in front to be served.
First customer spends £44 on reduced bits.
Second customer spends £11 on the national lottery.
Once my voucher is scanned, I am out of here.
We then popped into a Charity Shop who I made a friend a few weeks ago. I showed him where the rainbow laces I bought a couple of weeks ago is now....
He was pleased.
The next Charity shop has some unicorns I had to have!
Next up, hubby replaced the Monday cup he broke.
Now to go and visit my parents....
I had a good catch up.
Then off to Sainsburys we go...
Sequins time!
We got some bits.
The woman next to me spent £108 and didn't blink!
Coffee and nibble.
That was a certain Yorkie advert I liked....↓
Back home to unpack my bargains.
Nice bowl↓
Nice cup of brew time↓
Looks into today's newspaper.
Hubby starts on the tea.
We watch James Whale.
Tea time.
Now for a little pick me up↓
We caught up with the news and newspaper review.
Going to have a extra hour in bed!
