In Need Of A Good Blast!

 I'm a wonderful housekeeper. Every time I get a divorce, I keep the house - Zsa Zsa Gabor
 Welcome to my Sunday fun 💋
I was up at 5.30 as I was far too hot.
I gave the garden a quick water before it got too hot too do so!
I published 9 blog posts.
Sleeping Beauty woke up and we had a nice breakfast downstairs while it was still cool!
Now out to sort out Sexy Beast... 
Checks the tyres...
Fills up for the week with fuel.
On the way to town, one car couldn't wait to go into the car park of the lake, and drove straight in front of me....
He had a good blast of the horn off me...
Nearly causing an accident....!
Now off to town...
Car park 7 was still closed.
Parked in Car Park 4 instead.
Hubby got some new clothes from Primark.
I got some clothes in the sale in New Look.
It was getting well warm in the Shopping Centre.
Time for a quick visit to Mum and Dad.
(And to water the plants on their grave)
Back home.
Light lunch.
Then off to Costa Coffee in Henley to get some more nibbles.
Back home.
See what nibbles we got...
Enjoyed the sunshine in the garden...
(Under the parasol)
I got more food from Waitrose on the food app.
Now to go and get it...
The staff were talking about the Magic bag I had to come and collect.
I told them I was here for the Magic bag.
It wasn't ready, so I went off into WH Smith to have a look in there.
Five minutes later the magic bag arrived with some reduced flowers!
Back home.
Now for tea...
We caught up on the last episode of 
"Dragon's Den"

"Tom's Diner", which was originally released as an a cappella recording on Vega's second album, Solitude Standing (1987), was remixed in 1990 as a dance track by English electronic duo DNA with Vega as featured artist, and it became a Top 10 hit in over five countries.
